Hey guys it’s me. Not Ryan Gosling; Alison.  Sometimes I write posts that are so outlandishly outlandish, that the only thing I feel can pull it together, give it at least the facade of relevance and legitimacy… is Ryan’s punim.  I think it’s doing a great job of it.  A really great, sexy job.

| WEDDING PARTY ~ this Saturday, Feb 20 | :: A Bridal Event by the Wedding Library!!! ::

So, my birthday is this Saturday, and while I don’t feel like crawling into a hole, I’m certainly not immune to that tinge of dismay most of us inevitably experience as we get older.  I have to admit that ever since turning 27 – the age at which I unchecked the “Show Year” box on [...]

WEDDING THEME IDEAS | in the spirit of the superbowl (stay with me)…

In honor of the Superbowl (currently playing on our flat screen as I begin writing, which should reveal my level of interest), I thought I’d throw a few ideas on a theme your way… (That was the tamest image I could find by googling the words “football” and “woman.”  Don’t even try it with “girl.”  [...]
