It's my SITS Day!

Hello everyone! Today is a very exciting day in my world: 
My featured SITS day! 



Real quick, for those of you who don't know, SITS (The Secret's in the Sauce) is "a group of over 7,000 women bloggers dedicated to supporting each other by leaving comments. Lots and lots of comments."  It's a great network and how I met many bloggy-friends.
And today is MY day - the day when my blog is featured! Yippee!


I'm a (late) twenty-something bride-to-be who started this here blog to keep family in the loop of wedding planning.  Then one thing led to another, and as my fiancee Mike would say, blogging took over.   It's a fun way to document the ups-and-downs of wedding planning.   It also helps me to share little bits of advice with other brides-to-be.  (Plus, it's just fun to see what we have in store for our big day!)



See? That's us! (and of course, me)
Mike does all sorts of sweet things for me.  I have to admit I'm pretty lucky.  But if you read nothing else, you MUST check out his proposal, or go watch the actual video footage from the Washington Post. (We come in past the panda-craziness at the 1.15 min mark)


Please feel free to snoop around and see what we have planned so far!  I'm honestly starting to get a little nervous about 2011 on the horizon! While you're at it, get a glass of wine (or Bailey's spiked coffee or tea, however you like it) and get cozy.  Stay for awhile. 
If you like what you see, follow me on Twitter or even subscribe to my feed.
The big day is June 19, 2011!

(sidenote: we obviously need to change up our photo-taking stance.  I'm always on the right!)

  7. good luck planning your wedding...
    I got way to stressed out and I'm pretty sure my family hated me by the actual day, but what are you going to do? It's been 7 years now and everyone is still talking to me, so no permanant harm done...haha
    congrats on your day!

  9. Congrats on your very own SITS Day and on your upcoming nuptials!

    Don't worry about feeling a little nervous, its totally normal and the best way to relieve it is to talk with your fiance about it and get things out in the open.

  15. Happy SITS day and congratulations on your engagement! Planning can be wonderful (and terrible) but at the end of the day, what's most important is what happens AFTER the wedding day. But, why not have a fabulous day before you get to that ever after, right? :) I do plan weddings and events so stop by if you ever need yet another ear to bounce things off of.

  35. Happy SITS day! I love your blog name. It's funny how blogging can take on a life of it's own. Mine started to just post pictures of my kids and now it's got a life of its own.

    I think blogging is a fabulous way to document wedding planning. So much better than the notebook I used to document mine. Good luck on the rest of your plans!

  45. Congrats on your SITS day! Love the name of your blog! Enjoy all the wedding planning - why not?! You have the energy and the time and you're only going to do it for yourself once so put every bit of effort into it you want. Love how you and your dad are in sync about the first dance. Good luck with all of it. Fast forward to my life - I'm planning my daughter's Bat Mitzvah (feels like a wedding) and celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary this past summer. It goes fast so enjoy it all!
