we interrupt this program…


… to bring you an important (to me) announcement.

I am engaged.


So much to do! Where do I begin?

There are references to the Beyonce song to be made (something about putting a ring on it?). Facebook status to update. Seventeen dozen shots of my left hand to be uploaded to multiple social media channels.

This blog will evolve as I start talking about pastel shades of mildly unflattering bridesmaids’ dresses, cake flavours and napkin patterns.

So far, I suggested “Petting Zoo” and “Killer Clowns” as two possible themes. Both were rejected by the Internal Ethics Committee (aka Italian). Back to the drawing board.

Unicorns, perhaps? We could install a fake rainbow instead of a wedding arch!

And I have so many questions!

  • Can I wear Salomons with a wedding dress? Or perhaps, more accurately, WHICH Salomons would I wear with a wedding dress? I have my eye on these for now:


  • Can I dress as Pocahontas? [I’ll need to start growing my hair out].


  • Can I have an obstacle course at the wedding? [I already asked Italian. He sighed: “Because there won’t be enough obstacles?”]
  • Instead of wedding cake, could we serve something with peanut butter? And bacon?

As an adrenaline junkie at heart, I am looking forward to this. What can be more extreme than getting your (very different and weird) friends and (less different, but just as weird) family together in one physical space? But wait, it doesn’t end there. I get to parade around in a white outfit with the soundtrack from the 1700s written by a German Jew, while the spectators stare and cry. There is a lot of hugging, and we get to eat after.

Doesn’t it sound both strange and uncomfortable? Excellent! I’m in.

This is going to be an awesome party, y’all.


Getting hitched,

    Congrats Kate… about bloody time? Hope the man will always be at the finish line with a beer and a bacon burger (write that into your wedding contract).

    And its YOUR party, you can do anything you like and wear anything you want. It doesn’t have to be anything stereotypical and I would hope, knowing you, that it won’t be like anything anyone has ever seen before 🙂

    WOO! 😀 Congrats, Solo! 😀 😀 😀

    And as to your questions, as someone already said, keep in mind that this is *your* day, so there are no rules except the ones you make up. 🙂 To put things in perspective, my older brother and his wife commemorated their wedding with a Nerf gun battle party. It was awesome! 🙂

    And you should totally have a peanut butter and bacon cake. 🙂 If no one else wants it, then it’s more for you. That sounds like win-win to me! 😀
