#287: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

ok, seriously, my mind is racing. like...RAY-sing.

my mind feels like one of those...bingo ball roller things...with each bingo ball a roaring thought or question...

thank you so much.....thank you.....for the many warm comments and congrats. and also, of course, for the not-so-subtle nudges to get off my ass and update. loves it.

since he popped it (the question that is) we've slowly been telling our friends and family. everyone has so far been delightfully ECSTATIC for us. and the fab endorphins are a-flowing, like the alcohol will be on my wedding day. i'm on a high, people. a wonderful high.

the boyf...i mean, FIANCE...obviously knows about this blog and shares my intention to be budget-minded. so after some flighty discussions about venues and dates, we decided to figure out the guest list before anything.

we'll be listing the a's (musts) and b's (maybes) in excel.

i'm crossing my fingers for a list of 100 people. good luck to us.

as for the story of "how" it happened, i'm going to have to keep you in suspense a while longer. i'd like to think this blog is totally anonymous but just in case one of my sneaky friends knows about this blog and is following it without me knowing, i have to keep it a secret. meaning no details that could possibly confirm that it's "me" or any pictures. we're slowly leaking the news and trying to do in person so most of my girlfriends still don't know.

but...the plan is to have told everyone by next week. which means...story and pics to come!

oh wait, but if sneaky friend knows that it's me and read the previous post, then that means she knows that i'm engaged, doesn't it.

uhhh. wait, what? bingo balls...

Yes...the guest list before anything else! If you go to my blog, I have a link for a Newly Engaged page that might be helpful...when you're all done floating in the bingo ball cage that is.

You should look into weddingwire.com.
They have a online guest manager that you can either import or export into an excel spreadsheet.
