Once again, the week was fairly quiet in regards to wedding planning, due to The Prof being away on another business trip (to Naples, Florida.) In the meantime, I caught a nasty head cold and am home from work on this extremely rainy day, constantly sniffling while trying to recuperate in time for this week's South End Open Market.
Two Sundays ago, Murforelli managed to do one wedding-related task and check out the nearest Crate&Barrel for some ideas on what we might put on our wedding registry. That's right, we still don't have a guest list or budget, but damnit to hell if we aren't going to ace the consumerist aspects of this "wedding" thing.
So far we have a few possible places to register:
– Crate and Barrel
– Home Depot (The Prof)
– Abodeon (Blogorelli)
Whenever possible, we're listing our registries through the I Do Foundation, an organization who partners with retailers and donates up to 10% of the value of gift purchases to the couple's chosen charity/charities. As for C&B, we could only agree on two items: a sleek salt+pepper mill and a wine cooler. Oh well, we have plenty of time to get that salad spinner on the list.
In other news, the BM Ken's sweet and fun wife Ania (introducing Blogorelli nickname: APIC) emailed to let me know that the numerological sum for our wedding date is actually three (not one.) Her birthday is on September 19, plus she married someone born on the 19th and has known a myriad of people connected to the number 19, so I trust her. Luckily, THREE is still a super number:
"...instead of 1, your wedding day is a 3, which even on the surface appears ideal (think trilogy, triangle, perfect balance). To quote my books:
'Forever young, no number brings more joy than the 3. This is the number of creative self-expression, of the optimistic happy spirit, of enthusiasm and imagination.
The 3 represents the creative principle, as well as a variety of trinities, such as: past, present, future; mother, father, child; birth, life, death. The creative principle of the 3 governs both the act of creation and the act of procreation, which translates to both spiritual and creative power.
3 is a happy spirit, blessed with humor, optimism and enthusiasm for life--after all, it's a joyful energy.'"
YEA! Thanks, APIC, and we'll see you on your birthday next year...if not (hopefully) beforehand!
