Hey everyone! I used to have a planning journal on here but I donít know what page itís on and well Iíd rather just start a new one! Anyways Iím Meaghan and Iím a 22 year old lead toddler teacher. I teach 2 to 3 year olds. It's really a rewarding job when the children aren't off the wall insane! Some say I'm crazy for working with toddlers and maybe I am but what other job do you get to paid to play! As for the wedding, Iím getting married in Gloucester, MA on May 22nd, 2010 with a Cinderella/Beach themed wedding! I'm almost at the one year mark, well in 3 months we will be. Can't believe how fast it's coming. Our honeymoon will in fact be a disneymoon as long as we can afford it. I am very excited about that and my fiancť has never been to Disney so he is like a little kid heís so excited to go! He's like can we go now?! I'm always like no babe we can't afford it right now. Poor guy! But I swear I'm going to need a leash to hold on to him! He is so ADHD and I'm afraid he's gonna take off like a little kid! :rotfl2: Here's a picture of us (it's not the best because we both take terrible pictures but it's a picture)....

How did we meet? I met Joey from match.com, yeah I know lame! After a month of talking online and after making up countless excuses for not meeting him I finally decided to meet him November 4th, 2006. I only didnít want to meet him because I didnít believe in love anymore and after having my heart broken countless times I didnít think any guys were the ďnice guys.Ē Plus he was 24 and I was 19 and heíd never been in a relationship, never kissed a girl, etc. We went out to dinner at Chiliís and he brought me home after and we sat outside of my house in the car talking for hours. I didnít want him to leave! He came over the next day and helped me make a turkey bulletin board for school. For about two weeks we saw each other only a few times a week. Shortly after I asked him to be my boyfriend on November 14th, 2006, he said yes and we started seeing each other every day and he would sleep over. My parents loved him! Around December I realized he was the one. I had never felt like this about anyone, I know it sounds so soon but I just knew he was the one. I told him I loved him and he said he did too. Of course I didnít believe him but after a few days of him proving he did I believed him...

How did we get engaged? The proposal was actually my doing. We had been talking about marriage and children for awhile and finally I was like forget it Iím not waiting for him. I had it all set up but he ended up working late!!!! So on March 3rd, 2007 we were in a rush because we had to meet my family at Chiliís for dinner. I had set up some tickets starting at the backdoor to my bedroom door. There were five of them and each had a reason why I loved him and a hint for another card. When he got to my door there was a stop sign and a sign that said something like you canít enter without five cards. Then on my wall I had will you marry me Joey on it. Of course he said yes and we went out to dinner. I got the ring about two weeks later; it means a lot because it was my Nanaís ring so itís not huge but itís perfect and has meaning. We broke the engagement for two days in April because of his twin brothers girlfriend! She hated me and was jealous because she was pregnant and not engaged, well she is now and she actually likes me so itís all good. We actually broke up but then he gave me the ring back! Hereís some pictures of what I did.

This is the best picture of the ring that I could get. Never realized how hard it was to take pictures of rings.

When I update again I will show you what he did after I kept telling him how cute it would be if he would propose to me even though I already did it. I mean I've always dreamed of the man doing it. I have a few pictures I just have to find them and upload them.

I must be pretty boring no one wants to read mine :sad1: Anyways here's an update it's how Joey proposed with my wedding ring actually (which I've decided I don't really like guess we shouldn't have gotten them so early :confused3)

I actually forget the day he did this ( I know I'm a terrible fiancee) Actaully if I had photo paper for my printer I could print it with the date and find out and he'd never know I forgot. Anyways he pretty much copied my idea just in his own way. It was a random night after I had a terrible day at work which lately isn't unusual, I have a terrible class this time around. It was late and I finally decided to go take a show so when I walked up to the bedroom door I saw a note on it. The note was telling me to be very careful when I opened the door and to make sure I turned the light on. I figured he just put rose petals on the bed because once before he had done that after I complained he wasn't romantic (which he isn't sadly.) So I wasn't expecting to see this when I opened the door at all......

http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l138/almostrockstar13/010.jpg

It was so cute I cried. Like I sad he's not romantic but this in fact was pretty romantic. I loved it especially because it was all his idea and I had wanted him to do it since the day we got engaged. Super weird I wanted that to be traditional since my wedding is going to be far from traditional, well it will have some parts to it but really it's gonna be totally me.

Sorry this was a small update there wasn't that much to his proposal and I'm about to run out the door to go to spend time with my mom since Joey's working today (BOO!!!) and my dad and brother are at a boat show. I'm sure this is going to lead into doing wedding stuff YAY! I have a lot of ideas and things that are already planned so I'm going to have lots of updates as long as people want to read.

When I read your comment it made me very excited because I'm not going the whole traditional route with the wedding and I was like Joey proposing it kinda traditional but then I realized we had 2 engagements so thats totally untraditional :rotfl2: And I'm glad you love my ring it means soooo much to me because I was so close to my grandma.

congrats and welcome, looking forward to hearing more!:goodvibes

Thank you! More will be coming very soon

YAY for MA brides! :cheer2: That was a great welcome! I love love love your engagement picture I'm trying to convince Joey to take a few pictures with the jerseys but he's not a big sports fan nor does he own a jersey so it's not going well :sad2: But I'm sure I'll end up getting my way lol

Thanks, I never even realized we had 2 engagements for some reason it just never sunk in. Now I might need to go into work and brag tomorrow (maybe just to my assistant lol) And those few days were terrible I cried for 2 days straight, never knew that was possible! I was a student teacher at the time and spent both days there crying poor kids had no idea why I was so upset. Glad things ended up working out tho :woohoo:


Anyways I'm going out to brunch with my grandpa in a little while and then I might be working on a March bulletin board, I'm normally ahead with these things but I'm a bit behind lately so hopefully sometime tonight if not tomorrow I should have a little update for you. Thanks for reading.

Having a family ring is very special. At first before I ever found Joey it was said that my brother was going to get the ring to give to his fiance when the time comes but then everyone got to thinking about what if it ends in a divorce or what not and we don't get the ring back so then I met Joey and they decided I could have it instead. Very thankful they did too.

two engagements - lucky you!! its a really great idea, and the way you both did it was so cute and personal.

Thanks. I really like that we both did it our own way as well. I mean two engagements is better than one when it's with the right person anyhow :rotfl2: I wouldn't want to have another engagement and have it not be Joey! lol

Aww I love your story - so cute :)

Thank you :)

Thanks! Actually my next post is going to be about where we are getting married. We are going to get married at the elks at bass rocks. I grew up down in Rockport (well during the summers) on Long Beach so I always knew I wanted to get married down there but then my Uncle got married at the elks and I knew that was the place I just love the light houses. It's so werid you come down to Attleboro to do work and then you go to Gloucester in the summer.


Anyways update hopefully tomorrow morning before I go to work (working the late shift tomorrow BOO!!) I'm going to go finish some stuff for my classroom right now. Sometimes I hate being a teacher because my work is never done!!!

Well I was going to update with pictures but the website of the hall won't let me save the pictures. So this update will have the link to the hall.

I grew up down in Rockport, MA during the summers because my uncle had a beach house so we would drive our camper and park it in his driveway. I fell in love with these two lighthouses called Twin Lights and knew if I ever got married it would have to be somewhere I could see the lighthouses. Originally I wanted to get married on the beach I grew up at but I never heard back from city hall so I gave up on that idea. My Uncle ended up getting remarried and had his wedding at the Elks At Bass Rocks. I never went to the wedding because he wouldn't let me bring my boyfriend at the time but I saw pictures and then I drove by a few times during the summers since its only 15 minutes from where we would stay. I fell in love with the venue and knew this was the place. You can get married outside so I can see my lighthouses and when your inside the windows are HUGE so you can see the lighthouses from inside too! :banana: I have decided to go take my pictures before the ceremony on the beach I grew up at so I will still get the beach part of it. This summer we went up and talked to the lady in charge and ended up signing the contract and putting a deposit down. She was setting up the hall while we where there and it just looked so beautiful. I had been in there a few times to see pictures of the place set up but it was never set up before. I ended up driving by that night to see it light up. Here is the website for the Elks. Elks At Bass Rocks (http://elksatbassrocks.com/) Enjoy and let me know what you guys think.

Here's a picture of the lighthouses. Sorry it's a bit blurry it was very foggy the day I took it.

haha too funny I always walk to the Elks and back to the beach when we go up to Rockport! Such a great spot, are you doing an outdoor ceremony? There is a great nook by the water that I always see wedding going on during the summer!:goodvibes

A perfect gloucester/rockport day is a morning at Good Harbour beach, a walk to the Elks and back, and a late lunch in Rockport at Bear Skin Neck, then taffy from Tucks! Small world my dear!

Yes I'm doing an outdoor ceremony. I hate being inside plus if you do your ceremony inside its where your reception is and I just don't want that! I'm hoping to go down for a week and start trying food and stuff in August but my work has 2 girls getting married that month so I'm not sure I can get the time off and it's the only time we can get up there :( But if I do go I'll be driving by the Elks to see the weddings lol

oooo Tucks taffy now I want some! I'm going to dream about it tonight :rotfl2:

Sorry for the lack of updates work has been draining this week and it's my late week so by the time I get home and cook dinner it's like 8 and I just end up going to bed. More updates soon I promise. OOO I like this face:3dglasses makes me think about the movie I'm going to see tomorrow night in 3D.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Last week was just terrible at work so I had no energy to get online. Lucky for me my work actually cancelled today because of the snow storm. We never close so it's really a shock. If only Joey was home today would be perfect. Instead I'm just gonna end up spending the whole day online which isn't such a great idea. Ok so at first I wanted to make my save the dates because well I have that cricut and I love to do crafty things but then I found the perfect ones online. I am a concert nut, well I used to be until my favorite band (Simple Plan) stopped coming around but now I plan on going to see a band I used to love until I got into my Simple Plan obsession. I'm not ashamed to say I love the Jonas Brothers. I'm actually using one of their songs as our first dance song. Anyways these are going to be the save the dates..

http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l138/almostrockstar13/save_the_date.jpg

They aren't going to say pretty much anything this one says. I have my own little wording that I want but I don't have my notebook beside me right now so I'm not going to type it up. Sorry you'll have to wait until they come in. Super excited to order them. Honestly do you guys like them?

Also I got a call last week from Mary Kay saying I won a pampering experience from the bridal show I went to. They are coming to my house Sunday for my bridesmaids and I. I hope it's fun. I'm not really a girly girl so this is gonna be a little wierd for me but after the past month of work being heck I think I'll enjoy it besides not being able to see Joey. I hate not seeing him especially when I think he's working Saturday. :sad2:

Once Joey saw the JoBros movie he was like we can see them this summer. So now I'm wicked excited bc I haven't seen them since 2006 when I met them at a free mall show. I've been addicted to their fan club message board i feel bad for not checking in here! I'm a bad disboards person :sad2:
