One text message was all it took to tell me my girlfriend Dawn had big news. "Answer your phone I'm engaged," it read. Being in labor is the only thing I could think of that might compare to me giving an immediate callback. A waterfall on bended knee, sweet gentle words, this engagement was perfect. So perfect the wedding must be held this year. They don't want to wait any longer than they have to to be together. The next round of texting went like this: "Can you come to the wedding on December 2, we really want it then", "Ok we found a place for Dec. 7 is that ok?", "Hey we decided on December 8 for real this time", "Why aren't you answering my texts?", "Hey Beth we just booked the reception for Dec 15 now I know why you haven't answered my texts."
I knew this date would change and it did, it now falls right in the middle of two important family birthdays, a day before final exams and ten days before Christmas. Tis the season to be busy! I'm thinking Christmas ornaments could be a great wedding party favor and maybe the cake topper can have the Bride and Groom wearing antler ears. In all seriousness, I can't wait for this wedding; I'm sure there will be more She Prep about it than I can imagine.

Middle September through October is a prime time to purchase clothes for herself and her child. Most items are priced higher for the back- to-school crowd, then, after school starts, stores start trying to move their fall fashions fast to make room for winter.
