Groomsmen- An Introduction

Over the next few weeks I am going to give a rundown of my groomsmen, how I know them and maybe a story or two about them. My goal: so that everyone who reads this blog knows my buddies as well as I do. Piece of cake.

In the meantime, you can check out our website for the rundown of groomsmen and bridesmaids.

Wedding Rings for guys

I'm freaked out that I'm going to lose my wedding ring. There I said it. Anna says that doesn't actually make her mad. What makes her MAD is that I lose things that are important to me ALL THE TIME (or drop them in the toilet by accident).

Ipod- dropped in toilet
Swiss army watch- left in a bag that we gave to goodwill (luckily Anna saw it before giving it away). I had misplaced it for 4 months.
New Ipod- lost for a week, found under the seat of my car.

Maybe we should be looking at the positives of the above...I, or someone else, has always found what I've lost.

So as we begin this search for the male ring, I've been instant that we don't buy an expensive one. I understand that the ring is a symbol of our love and our marriage and I shouldn't lose it. I do understand that. But let's be realistic here: I am 27 years old and have never been good at keeping up with things. I've never worn a ring for more then a week (when rings were cool for guys back in the late 90' least I thought they were cool).

So I don't want to buy a $500 ring. I want to by a $50 ring. This pisses my mom off. This pisses my sister off. My brother just laughs and shakes his head at me.

I'm not trying to offend them women out there, although I know I am good at that. I just want them to be realistic, and maybe that's too much to ask?

Off to the Big Apple

Anna and I will be meeting my parents and my brother in New York City tonight for an early Quarles Christmas. We'll be at Madison Square Garden watching the Duke Blue Devils take on the Pittsburgh Panthers Thursday night. We're also heading to The Comedy Cellar late Thursday night to see Dave Attell (hopefully) and others. This will be Anna's first NYC comedy club experience, we'll try to get pictures.

Engagement Party

Over Thanksgiving weekend, a group of my parent's friends threw us a Pig Pickin' in Durham and it was more then we could have asked for. We had a great mix of people and had tons of fun eating a pig and drinking some good local beer called Red Oak.
Anna and I also received tons of unexpected gifts, which is never a bad thing. Just look at the surprise on Anna's face!!!
