We Have A Date- a wedding update
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
We finally set a date!
June 24, 2015 at 9 a.m. That's the big day. I've gone back and forth about this a lot because it makes me nervous, but the skin tag under Harlow's arm pit has to be removed, so on June 24th it's coming off.
I'm an asshole... I know. Although there really is a skin tag that must be removed on Harlow. I just hate putting him under to do these types of things because I've read every terrible story on the internet about how some dogs don't wake up and then I work myself into a nervous frenzy. Does anyone else cry when their dog has to leave their side for a few hours because they have serious dependency issues and separation anxiety? Just me? Cool cool.
But back to the real date. The date everyone likes to ask me about. The date that every other girl BUT me seems to set the very day they get engaged. That date.
Tape up the streamers and get out the fancy clear balloons from Wal Mart with something really cool inside like a teddy bear holding a lolly pop because we actually have a date!
July 23, 2016. *I just had to confirm in my planner this is the actual date, I think it's right.
Is this the date of my parents anniversary? No. Is it Chris's parents? No. Grandparents? Not sure.
It's the date of something much more important.
July 23rd, 1997 is the day I competed in my first ever Cornhusker State Games Girls Under 12 Track Meet. And I won.
I won the high jump and I almost won the 100 meter dash. For the sake of this post and my future wedding date, let's say I won the 100, as well. On this date I just had a feeling I would go on to do big things. I think I even wrote in my Limited Too diary I was pretty sure I'd be at the next Olympics. Clearly my child's intuition was spot on.
July 23rd is also the day I went to my first summer camp and really found myself.
And it just happens to be the day I taped my first "Made" video for MTV in junior High. "Hey MTV, it's me Taylor and I want to be a surfer girl! But I live in the Nebraska and the only waves I see are waves of cornfields!" *cue studio laughter.
So this day is clearly full of monumental events.
And in 2016 it will be the day Chris and I tie the knot in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We haven't worked out all of the details, but we're hoping to do an outdoor ceremony at Lake Catamount followed by a tented reception.
So coffee cheers to Colorado!
I invite you all to come on this wonderful journey and listen to me blog about every last detail for the next 15 months. First things first, where can I get a handsome tuxedo for Harlow? Second things second, is anyone friends with Taylor Swift? I kind of want her to sing at my wedding. If you can hook this up I'd really appreciate it.
*If I find the Made video at my parents house and can figure out how to put it on here I promise to post it. It's too good not to.
