Lying to my grandmother

Okay, so my grandmother sent me earrings for my birthday. This would be awesome, except that I don't actually have my ears pierced... and I just lied to her on the phone and told her that I did. In my defense, this is not a complete lie because I did at one point (well, two points actually) have my ears pierced. Once when I was twelve and again when I was fourteen. They grew in both times. At the time my mother told me it was because I had an insanely powerful immune system that just couldn't stand to have holes in it. However, I think I might just have been a wimp who was too wimpy to push an earring through a closing piercing. The only reason I've been able to deal with my nose piercing is that I never change the tiny stud that lives in it -- so I never have to come face-to-face with my wimp-y-ness.

Anyway... point is... lying to my grandmother got me thinking... should I pierce my ears for the wedding? I could wear these...

Okay... this whole thing is coming together... I've got someone making my dress

I've got a deposit down at a venue (a re-habbed barn which will also be our caterer).

I've got myself a fabulous photographer who was an incredible deal and just got married to a woman herself.

I sent my grandmother to a tasting with her chef friend and they returned with recommendations.

My mother is gathering antique milk bottles and ocean rocks (she's a kayaker) to create our centerpieces.

My theologian aunt has agreed to be our officiant

I've created our wedding website

The ball... it be rollin'!
