To Warmer Climes

We're off to Chicago tomorrow for weekend number one of wedding planning. This will be the first time we're actually sitting down face to face with vendors, asking them questions and sampling their wares. If our appointments are anything like the meeting we had with the registry coordinator at Bloomingdale's, it should be interesting.

By the way, some people seem not to be getting the joke when it comes to the T-Shirts below. I received an angry email from one woman, chastising me for "tagging" women and treating them as "little more than property." Rather than offer an explanation, I emailed the woman back and politely asked her if she wore an engagement ring. I haven't heard back, so I guess she got my point.

To everyone else, thank you for your support, for reading and for your funny comments! I'll report back on Monday.

That woman is too much - I loved the idea and even bought my fiance a mug for Valentine's Day. It's not like you created shirts that say, "My Bitch" on them!

Enjoy Chicago!

Me too!! I really don't think my fiance cares if he has a 'token' of his engagement, and that awful woman should be ashamed that she accused you of thinking that way!

Have fun in Chicago...too bad it won't be any warmer than NY!
