@Nferrari:  Thank you! I picked it because of The Last Unicorn, I love that book/movie. But I’m also part Greek and love Greek mythology! πŸ™‚ Unless the weather is completely terrible, we’re having the ceremony in Sutro Heights Park by the Cliffhouse, it has beautiful trees and this awesome castle-like structure,  and the reception at Sir Francis Drake. We’re lucky my FH’s parents are very generous, because everything in union square is so expensive!  What about you? Feel free to PM me so we don’t spam the board πŸ˜›

How did you meet your fiance? I went out on St. Patrick’s Day with some girlfriend’s and was in a man-hating mood. We went to a local bar and she ran into a guy she had grown up with so we joined their table (since very few remained). I was having a great time (drinking it up as well) and her friends friend would come to talk to me every one in a while just to keep me company and occasionally hit on me (he had clearly been drinking a lot as well). He was making me laugh a lot. He was normally not my type at all but kept me entertained. We danced a couple times and since I was since in anti-man mode, I told him all my faults (didn’t sugarcoat anything) and he still wanted my number. He came back to my place (still anti-men I was well behaved) however, we arrived separately and I got there first. Since I got there first I went ahead and took off all my make up, put my glasses on, put on sweats and a t-shirt, and when I answered he said I looked even better than I did before. We’ve been together ever since. We’ve had our share of many bumps in the road and have been through more than some have been through in 30 years of marriage but, we’ve learned, lived, loved and grown.

Sorry for the long story.

@PrincessBride2014:  oh I’m very happy Fiance has been broken of the TV habit since we moved in together just out of necessity. I understood he’d slept with the TV on since he was a kid and I was ready to accept it, but when we moved into our apartment together we couldn’t fit the furniture the way we’d originally planned. When we turned the bed the other way there was nowhere to put the TV. Now, he hasn’t slept with the TV for almost a year, but we’re moving again and he’s started talking about how in our new apartment maybe there will be room for a TV in the bedroom and I’m like “really? I thought we were over this.”

@luluvohn:   Ugh I know exactly how you feel! I don’t mind wathcing it in bed before we actually go to bed, but once I decide its sleep time, I need it OFF. Our compromise is now that he watches movies on his iPod since he “needs” it to fall asleep, but as long as it doesn’t keep me up I am a-ok with that!!
