o saturday.

Today is my first Saturday as a fiance. It was fuuuullllllll of emotion and adventure. First Meg and I had an appointment with a Ms. Ginga with Whole Foods. They will be catering our little shindig, it really was a lot of fun. We were able to try this amazing BBQ potato salad that blew my mind and Meg insisted that we get their mac and cheese. We both agreed on their chicken fried tofu. Sooooo good if you’ve never had it before. Ms. Ginga was very sweet and it was a pleasure meeting her. Thank you Whole Foods.

From Whole Foods we went to the Rock Quarry Garden, site of the ceremony and picnic, to check out what the sun was doing at 10 a.m.. We were afraid it was going to be brutal on the park and make it difficult for us to keep our eyes open during the ” I do’s”. We love this place, we were lucky enough to get the last available Saturday in August AND it is August 14. Exactly four years from the day we met each other. Pretty cool. *These guys aren’t invited*

*This is where the reception/picnic will be*

Next stop, the bank. Meg and I decided to open a joint checking and savings account. It was pretty boring so I didn’t take a picture. Truth is, I hate the inside of banks. They are so boring. I never go inside. I’ve never even used the drive through. Can you get a home loan through the ATM? That’s the only thing I don’t hate about BOA.

Meg needed to eat breakfast so we went to Panera for some Asiago bagels with cream cheese. Yum.

Then… we went to Target and registered.

It was a ton of fun. Meg registered for a bunch of responsible kitchen type stuff and I scanned two flat panels and a Canon EOS digital SLR. Oh and some champagne. White Star. Yum.

I had a lot of fun with my fiancee. I love her. She’s out getting fitted for her dress and I’m blogging/watching A Few Good Men while hippo naps on my feets.
