Special Days are the new awesome

Ahem.


I have an announcement to make.




aaron and i are getting married!

well ... sort of.

our names are getting married in next month's issue of Modern Bride, thanks to the lovely ms. cindy ferguson and the noteriety of her invitation design company, invitedelight. Normally when cindy gets her new invite designs featured in magazines she gets to be the one to marry a cute boy in the mock-up, but this time she let me do it. When I really do get married in real life some day (this one is fake, people. sheesh), I am totally going to make Cindy design my invites.

    Betsy, wait until I update my website, you ain't seen nothin' yet. I've been saying 'wait until I update my website' for the past year and a half now though, so don't hold your breath.

    It will be easy to change out Aaron's name to Jenga Fett, no problem, already on it.

    She can do mine. But not in pink. I don't like pink. Or purple.

    How about, Aqua and yellow. AHA

    Actually, I would rather marry han solo. Can we do that, Cindy?

    And seriously. I am holding my breath to see that website of yours, so please hurry and get it up so that i dont asphixiate.

    aqua and yellow will look good alice. are you going to be needing some invites soon? hmm?

    han solo? i'd totally marry obi-wan and i think aaron would agree with me.

    actually, i wanted to say nice wedding photo . . . not.

    but it's not your fault (and not even aaron's fault). you guys look great, but don't you think wedding photos shouldn't show the couples faces? it's too obvious.

    here are two ideas you two can steal:
    1) a photo of both of your feet in your favorite shoes. i kind of like this one, but worry about defining yourself based on what you own, which, as aaron is aware, is bs. but the photo could still be cool.
    2) a photo-profile of the two of you face to face (possibly kissing) but the top of the photo starts at you mouths and the bottom of the photo ends at the collar bone.

    and aaron, i thought you were gay. i even told dad, maile, katie and grandma w. but not grandma k. you know how she is. i also thought we should wait til sam comes home to tell him. he'd be writing you every week about how you need to change, but you can't help it, man.

    how can it be fake if it feels so right?

    that dog sure likes to cook!

    obi wan is a life partner, jenga fett is for doing it. can becca have both? also, i'm joining a movement to legalize polygamy, but only for clones.

    in my real wedding photo, i totally plan on doing something a little more artistic. dont worry. i was sort of thinking of photoshopping big hearts over the eyes of me and my fiance, and in the background, there will be a unicorn riding on the back of a pegasus over a rainbow, and written on the pegausus' wings will be the words "True Love."

    thanks for your suggestion, brian. i am just thinking of something a little bit more rainbow.

    also roommate, i'll help you stuff each envelope with a teaspoon of glitter and a tablespoon of love.

    i'm also in love with cindy's designs. they are almost the new awesome.

    bets,

    careful, if you put a WHOLE teaspoon of love in, it will soak through the envelope.

    Who says that love is a liquid?

    I think that for my wedding photo my bride-to-be and I will be wearing denim and sitting by haystacks.

    And Betsy I'm with Cindy. Doy! Love is measured in bushels.

    how about this:
    you're a pony riding on the back of a unicorn over a rainbow to a place where your mom let's you where make-up. you also like sparkles.

     
  • At 10:41 PM, Blogger bex said…
