Alrighty everyone, I have a special Halloween treat for you today! My lovely friend Brani has agreed to come guest post for me today. I love this girl, because she teaches me how to be pretty. And she is just a doll herself. So without further ado, take it away Miss Laine.
A big hello to all of Whitney's followers! My name is Brani Laine and I blog over at That's Just Lovely... Somehow I bribed Whitney to guest blog for me (go read what she had to say when you're done here!), and even better, I bribed her (I gave her five pairs of boots and ten fall jackets) to let me borrow a li'l section of her bloggy wog. Oh, come now, I didn't really give her boots and jackets... or did I? Anyway, this is me:
I blog about beauty, fashion, and life. Mostly beauty and life. I would adore you if you decided to check out my blog, and love you all the more if you decided you liked me enough to follow. Now on to what I've got to say that's more important...
First and foremost, my thoughts are with everyone involved with Hurricane Sandy. My best friend in the world lives in NYC, and she can't even talk to me via text, email, anything. We don't go very long without speaking, so this is hard for me to not know what's going on with her, and all my other NYC/NJ/etc. friends and family. I only know what I see on the news, which is never good, as we all know. So, if you live there or by there, have friends or family there--my prayers are with you and them! I know the feeling of being worried sick.
Now, I want to move on to a lighter subject. I have a question to all the engaged/married ladies. I am not engaged. I hope to be in maybe 1-2 years, but I have it planned out a little bit how I want it to happen. I don't want it to be on Valentine's Day, Christmas, or my birthday (however, that is cute, and I'm not knockin' anyone who has done that. If my boyfriend does, I'll still say ____) but I don't want to be expecting it at all. I have a
LOT of friends that seem to be getting married or proposed to lately, and hearing all of their stories is just so cute and makes me melt. How were you proposed to? Were you caught off guard? Take a look at this cute fall proposal:
Cute right? Or lame? I say cute. But you tell me! I want to hear your stories (you share, too, Whitney) and whether you cried, had pictures taken, were surprised or kind of expecting it, all that jazz. I think love is adorable and something to be cherished always. For all the single ladies, don't fret! There's a man out there for you, and yes, he will put a ring on it someday! I met mine on Match.com (though he still won't admit it to his friends, haha...ha?) after "giving up". I really thought all men were jerks and that I was better off being alone and just partying with my friends every night (what a great decision, right?). So, this is my unpaid (yeesh, why am I doing this?) shout-out to Match.com! Try it. You will go through some lame dates, some dates where you don't even know if you're interested or not, vice versa, some awful dates, but also some wonderful dates that may just lead to marriage. Hey--mine is (or so it seems, let's not jinx it) on the way there. We do live together... ;) Now share your stories! Happy Halloween! Have fun & be safe! Oh, and just in case you were wondering…here’s
: (I know, right? ;) Brandon
So stop on by her blog and tell her hello. After you tell us about your love stories. :) If you want to read my proposal story, go HERE.
