I feel like there have been a LOT of new bees lately (in the past month or so I guess), and I wanted to see if any of them wanted to stop by and say hello to the boards and (if they want to) out themselves as previous posters? I know some bees were not board users before they became bees, and some don’t want to out themselves… but I think a lot of us like to know if you are someone we knew on the boards.
So… new bees… if you’d like to, say hello 🙂

I’ve posted some since getting engaged in July, but never formally introduced myself. I’m jenewitt, or some people call me JB. My Fiance and I have been together for about 4 1/2 years and just got engaged in July in Block Island, RI. We’re having our wedding in Savannah, GA on June 25, 2011. He’s Brazilian and I’m Texan, so I’m trying to figure ways to incorporate those things into our Southern wedding! I love reading all y’alls posts on here and they really help me clarify some things I’ve been trying to plan!!

i’ve been posting here for about a month i think. definitely wish i had found this site sooner! anyways, my name is faith and i live with my fi in colorado. i am an attorney. we are both from the east coast– i am from southern virginia and he is from western nc… so we are getting married in a week and a half on the outer banks in nc!
we have been together for a year, and living together for most of that time. ever since i met him, i just knew that i would marry him– before that, i was starting to think that i would never meet the right person for me (i am 31).
anyways, we are having a tiny wedding– about 20 guests, and everyone that is invited to the wedding is invited to stay in this giant beach house that we rented for the week. the wedding is on the north end of the outer banks in corolla, which i am hoping will be a little quieter than places like nags head.
i leave for virginia a week from today and am spending a couple days with my parents before heading for the beach… here’s hoping for no hurricanes!
i love reading all of your posts– they have been so helpful to me both in terms of the planning process, and in calming my pre-wedding nerves.

Hello Bees 🙂
While I have been an official member of the site for over a year, I have only been posting things recently. I guess I should introduce myself, as I haven’t prior to this point. My name is Cory and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. I obtained my two bachelor’s degrees from Carlow University. I have one in psychology and the other in philosophy. I just obtained my masters degree in Professional Counseling from Carlow University. I am currently job searching. My lovely boyfriend, Pete, works for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He obtained his undergraduate degree from RMU in sports management and is currently a student at Carlow University working towards obtaining his MBA. He is expected to graduate in December. We are college sweethearts. We started dating about a month after the start of our first year of undergrad. In total, we have been together for 6 years. We put together the engagement ring and he has had it in his apartment for almost two months! Yikes! Lol. I genuinely believe I will be getting it soon though, so I am siked. I love my beautiful sweetie tons and tons and tons. We are anticipating that we will set the date for the wedding for a date during 2011. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with him! Have a lovely day everyone :-).
Forgot to add originally: I am 24 years old and he is 24.5 years old.

I found this site a month ago when I googled images of engagement rings. I am not yet engaged, but anxiously waiting. My name is Kristen and my boyfriend’s name is Ricky! We live in Florida and have 2 cats (Noni is my avatar, and Maddie)
We (Ricky and I) have been together for almost 4 years and we are 21 (me) and 22 (him).
This site has been so awesome. I am on here more than FB. I have to clear my computer’s history everyday because I don’t want Ricky to really know how much I obsess…..

I joined weddingbee about a month ago and have posted some. I absoutely love this site and feel like I live on it some days, you ladies are full of such wonderful knowledge and ideas!!! My name is Courtney, I am 27 years old, and I am from the Dayton, OH area. I attended The University of Tennessee and now work as a Staffing Supervisor for a nationwide Staffing (Temp) Agency…fun times, lol! I plan to return back to school to get a teaching degree in 2 years, want to do the High School level. I was diagnosed out of the blue with Multiple Sclerosis back in March of 2009 but looking at me you can’t tell I’m sick and I seem to be doing fine, just a shot three times a week. My wonderful Fiance is Tom, whom I met after my diagnosis and has really helped me and accepted me and my possible health issues. Let’s put it this way “In sickness and in health” will mean more than anybody knows on our wedding day. Tom is orginally from Cincinnati, Ohio, 26 years old, and enlisted in the Air Force (Jet engine mechanic) after high school. He now is out and works as an engineer at GE Aviation while attending school full time for a mechanical engineering degree. We just built a house together in a more rural area of Ohio in between Cincinnati and Dayton and love it. Quiet small town that’s 20 minutes to any point of civilization we need. I love my Tommy more than anything and we already have a great family between me, him, and our german Shepherd Zoe. We will be getting married at the Masonic Temple in Dayton (almost 100 years old) and our reception will be at the officer’s club on Wright Patterson Air Force Base. We’ll be getting married May 21st next year!

I found the site a few months ago, lurked for a while then de-lurked a couple of weeks ago. I’m not engaged….yet! But hopefully one of these I will have a date by my name instead of only the city where I live! LOL!
The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together going on 2 yrs, we started a LDR about 4 months ago when he moved to Burbank for a new job. It’s been tough but I’m trying to hang in there. He says he will only be there for a year, but I think he loves it there and wants to stay. So now I’m trying to decide if I’m willing to move across the country to the unknown (and to a place with such a high cost of living!!! YIKES!). I also have a 14 yr old, who doesn’t make friends easily, so it adds another loop to my dilemma. But I guess I’m just rolling with it right now and waiting to see what happens. 🙂
Anyway, I love it here cause I’ve always been fascinated with anything wedding related. Hope y’all don’t mind having an not engaged gal hangin’ around. 🙂
Thanks Corgi for starting this thread and for the warm welcome!

uh, I think Cogi Tales was refering to actual Bees (as in, the bloggers).
Not trying to rain on parades, or discriminate, just clarify.
I doubt any blogging bees really frequent the boards all that much anyway. 😛

@sassmeister: lol i did… but if new board bees want to introduce themselves thats cool too! 🙂 I know some bees were around the boards a lot (scissors, octopus, etc)… was just wondering if any of the newer bees are familiar faces with new names 🙂
