I'm getting married in the morning (ding dong)



The day is finally almost upon us. Tomorrow afternoon my fiance and I will say our vows in front of our immediate families and a small number of friends. All that's left to do is pack my overnight bag and have the shower to end all showers.


It's been a road fraught with anxiety but I love Mr. Vex with all my heart and even though I don't think weddings are a big deal, it means a lot to me to commit to him.  I never believed in soulmates, but I know that he's mine.

Here's hoping that it's worth missing the live airing of the new episode of The Walking Dead for (:

And ha. Beat Joy down the aisle.

Hooray! I'm happy for you and your mister. I hope it all goes the way you want it to and that you have many happy memories of the day. :my_biggrin: 

I was happy but very calm on our wedding day. I apparently got all my bitchy, bridezilla feelings out of my system the day before. 

Best wishes for you both! :my_heart:

Congratulations! Enjoy your day. I hope it's full of happiness.

Gee, Walking Dead is starting to get good again, perhaps you can sneak off for an hour to watch it? Lol.

@WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo? I don't know you but cannot imagine you being anything but calm, thoughtful,and reasonable.

Ha ha, unfortunately here. It's simulcast with the US so it airs live at 1pm and my wedding is at 3. Technically I'm not leaving until 2 but I'll be doing my makeup and getting dressed and alas there is no way of moving the tv into the dressing room or a mirror into the tv room. I'm totally recording it though! I don't understand the complaints about this season, I think the show has been great since it started following the comics more closely!

Thanks for all the well wishes, guys. I'm very calm about the wedding but definitely very happy too. Right now I'm just hanging out preparing for all hell to break loose later on. If FSM is good, my in-laws won't talk about politics again at the reception. Cross your fingers for me!

      Found this article from last year. (https://www.moms.com/myka-stauffer-gets-real-sharing-the-hardships-of-adoption/)

      Many of these statements did not age well. 

      Some highlights: (bolding and reaction emojis mine)

      Moms.com recently had the opportunity to chat with Stauffer about [...] how the challenges of adopting a special needs child further fortified her own personal character trait of not giving up.

      “I prayed for a sign that if this was supposed to be our child [...] let us have the same birthday or just like one day apart. It was bizarre, but sure enough our birthdays are very close.” 🙄

      “When we brought him home, the only thing he would do was rock and bang his head against the wall.” 💔

      “for me, it made me want to fight for him more. That's my personality. I'm a perfectionist. I'm a fighter. I am an advocate. If you tell me no, I'll say yes, and find a way to make it work”

      ”For many parents who have adopted, it’s true that you paint that picture in your head of what your child is going to look like and be like, and then when the child arrives, there’s a big adjustment period. My son has taught me to chill out and to realize that it doesn't matter what your persona is. You are my baby and I'm going to love you unconditionally.”

      I know that he is supposed to be with us and our family. Maybe, because we're brave enough or crazy enough to say that imperfection doesn't scare us.” 


      What a difference a year makes...

      If you’re on a television show and running for office, you should really be able to hit 300 Twitter followers.

      Jill, if you're going to film yourself with your phone while driving I'd suggest not posting it to social media. 🙄

      I've been backwards and forwarding with the SeaFillies  as which group posting has surprised us the most, KPop stans, furries, anonymous, Blues Clues fans, Blue Man Group, Ben and Jerries, Smurfs..

      1 hour ago, thoughtful said:

      I don't know if you watched the video, but there were more people there than I showed in my screenshots. I just thought it was so funny that the first time he said it was crowded, he was focused on a huge empty swath.

      But full, packed, all over one another? No. Gary is, as you already know, full of shit.

      My mental image of "packed" is:


      So yeah, I was thinking "looks great - not too many people, lovely beach, awesome!"
