I Don't Really Have a Title. But They're Wedding Photos. Or Pre-Wedding Photos. Or Engagement Pictures Even.

My friend Beth noticed in my joke from last post that I would be kind of hungry if I only ate things that start with E on Thursdays. Luckily Arizaphale and DJ Kirkby thought up plenty of E-food, but really that wasn't the point. The point was WHOLESOMENESS! The-Guy helped me choose letter E like this:
Me - What letter do you think is the MOST wholesome?
Him - Most wholesome?
Me - Yeah! A nice wholesome letter.
(no answer)
Me - You know? Like one nobody associates with any swear word?
Him - A! Oh. No...wait...
(several moments later)
Him - E.
That's what he goes through just to hang around with me and take pre-wedding photos. Jeff actually called them engagement pictures, which sounds better, although I think both are accurate descriptions.

First some in my decoy wedding dress. Because, you know, The-Guy isn't supposed to see me in my real wedding dress.

I searched and searched for a decoy dress that looked weddingy, but I didn't find one. Luckily a teacher across the hall from me had given me her daughter's old prom dress. So I just wore that:The-Guy - "Look at the definition in your arm on this one."
Me - "That's definition? Oh good! I just thought my arm was lumpy."Please don't worry about correcting him. "Definition" sounds way better than "lumpiness".More casual ones:


Woo-hoo! The wedding is over! We're all jumpy and happy!Wait! The wedding's not over?!?!? Drat. That's okay. We're still jumpy and happy. Or exhausted from picking out tacos. One or the other.

Those are really nice photo's. Your arm looks very defined :)
Mine are flubbery, you know like ol' lady's arms were the skin hangs, time to get the weights out LOL.
Your wedding sounds like it is going to be a blast :)

Marlene said...

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks Marlene & Tracy!

A Free Man said...

Love the black and white ones!

People in the Sun said...

It's great to see you two happy. Almost congratulations.

Beth said...

aren't you always jumpy and happy? oh wait, not when there is a movie on... he he he. Tell the guy I think Q is awfully wholesome!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks AFM & People!!!!

Beth - But isn't that Avenue Q show supposed to be less than wholesome? And yes, I'm always happy and jumpy, unless I'm napping on your couch. :-)

Disa said...

fun!how many times did you have to jump? that's one way to give the legs definition too.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Disa,
We jumped maybe three or four times? Probably not enough to give my legs any real definition. They'll just have to be lumpy. :-)

Love the 3 casual photos. Especially the one in the record store. It's tres artsy.

Although the mushy ones are kinda cute too.

Heidi said...

These pics are really cute. I wish that 15 years ago taking fun engagemnet pics was the thing to do! *pout* It's like babies. When yours are all big and boring, all the cool things for new babies get invented and you can't have them. Sucks. ;)

Tracy said...

LOL on your comment on my blog. Bleeding wrist and hearts LOL.
Who would have came up with that, oh thats right you. LOL

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Curly Glamor Girly - I really like that one too!

Heidi - Yeah, I know! There are so many easier things out there for babies now! And plus, half the toys my daughter played with, they've now decided are poison and don't allow those chemicals in toys anymore.

Thanks Tracy. :-) :-) :-)

DJ Kirkby said...

Gorgeous photos. Can we trade arms please? And bodies? Seriously...mine's cushion-y.

Arizaphale said...

OK. Who's the ring-in bloke on the second photo cos it doesn't look like the Giant Cucumber Grower to ME!!!!???

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

DJ Kirkby - Well, we're done with the wedding and all, so I guess...
:-) :-) :-)

Arizaphale - That's him, my giant cucumber grower!!!
