"time alone to recharge...."

i have had an obvious lack of blogging due to no internet, and a general disinterest in wedding related things. i haven't set foot into a bridal shop since the summer, i haven't really got anything except my fantastic video guy and venue. snapdragoni can't believe it's november, i swear last month was august. side note: i got accepted to be a bee at weddingbee.com so that's pretty exciting! i'm thinking of being "miss snapdragon" for my love of cameras ;)

speaking of weddingbee, a quick surf through the site tonight piqued my last flicker of waning interest in wedding-related ho hum, which finally gives people like jenn and vanessa and tiara something to read.

laila, if you're out there, i'm sure something deep in your soul also cringes at the word "extrovert." but here's what it said on weddingbee, and it's a little bit true about me, but freakishly, awakeningly true about andrew! hello "introverted" husband to be!:

Extrovert: An extrovert is a person who is energized by being around other people. Extroverts tend to “fade” when alone and can easily become bored without other people around. When given the chance, an extrovert will talk with someone else rather than sit alone and think. In fact, extroverts tend to think as they speak, unlike introverts who are far more likely to think before they speak. Extroverts often think better when they are talking. Concepts just don’t seem real to them unless they can talk about them; reflecting on them isn’t enough. Extroverts enjoy social situations and even seek them out since they enjoy being around people.

Introvert: Contrary to what most people think, an introvert is not simply a person who is shy. In fact, being shy has little to do with being an introvert! Shyness has an element of apprehension, nervousness and anxiety, and while an introvert may also be shy, introversion itself is not shyness. An introvert is a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around other people. Introverts are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. They often avoid social situations because being around people drains their energy. This is true even if they have good social skills. After being with people for any length of time, such as at a party, they need time alone to “recharge.”

the boy has that venus/mars book on men and women. i had leafed through it at one point, and although everything completely obvious, it becomes more solidified and tangibly realized in print.

not insinuating anything about relationships/marriage and how it may pertain to jenn, but when i came across these classy dresses by stephanie james couture (thanks again to the gals at wb), i thought of my dearest maid of honor.

stephaniejamescouture2i've begun to look for another photographer, and with the entire country at my disposal i'm a bit overwhelmed by the options, but underwhelmed by the content. i want something to really pop out at me and last longer than the painstakingly selected photos of the "featured wedding" section. all i can walk away with from this experience so far is that no dresses really stand out to me. not that i really expected very much from my dress-to-be, but i now see a lot of potential wow-factor in the vintage look. i love the concept of tea length, but feel as though i might look 12 years old standing at 5'2" in a dress like this.

Oooo I love that dress - but I've got serious booty going on and I don't think I want my guests staring at that the entire time - hypothetically speaking... you've waned because your probably exhausted - jeez, you've moved, work full time and everything else. We just need to get you a reasonable to do list and have you slowly chip away at things. Time for your peoples to help you out
