I was married to my first husband and the father of my kids for 12 years. After a long divorce I swore to myself I would never get married again. Then 2 1/2 hears ago came along Ron. He is the kindest man I have ever met. He has accepted my kids as his own and loves me unconditionally. For the first time in a very long time, I know someone loves me and only me.

And I will say Bridesmaid loosely and here's why. This girl, just someone I occasionally worked out at the gym with for a few weeks. She is a cashier I see a few times a week saying a few words, barely even small talk. But for some reason she kept wanting me as a "buddy" to go check out some wedding dresses with her. I thought nothing of it and we finally went. <BR> <BR> Keep in mind I barely know anything about this girl. We've never done anything friends do. I don't know any of her family...

I struggle with sticking to weight loss....anyone want to buddy up? I know i need to just cut my portion size and drink more water because majority of my diet is healthy and SW based but I do go off course at times and then struggle to get back on the wagon. My portion size is bigger than it should be for my lifestyle and activity level (which is pretty sedentary when I'm not at work)...anyone fancy budding up to help keep each other focussed? I can get pretty competitive if my mind is up to ... Thu, 13 Apr 2017 09:32:31 EST Any other 2018 brides looking for a buddy? Hi!

Just was curious what y'all are up to Mon, 16 Jan 2017 21:39:57 EST Toxic In-Laws I wanted to ask how other people have dealt with toxic in-laws. I am the mother of the bride. We are so excited for our daughter and her fiance to be tying the knot. They have been receiving an incredible amount of negative pressure from the future in-laws. Honestly, it's horrific some of the things the groom's parents have said to them. The kids decided they wanted to have a small, upscale event. They are getting married at a winery in British Columbia and the way it works is that they... Tue, 3 Jan 2017 12:14:21 EST Mother of Groom 23 week challange I will be the Mother of the groom in July.

Mon, 8 Aug 2016 12:45:22 EST A look at finances before you're married Perhaps this should be addressed to older folks getting married. No need to do something as formal as a pre-nup, but it is wise to take a look at what each one owns before you tie the knot. You may not live in a community property state, but there is a good chance you life in a state with a definition of marital property or marital assets. <BR> <BR> Discuss ahead of time who you want to leave your savings to -- your kids? your grandchildren? your spouse? <BR> <BR> What happens to your... Sat, 16 Apr 2016 09:33:02 EST I found my dress I found my dress yesterday. It is more beautiful than I dreamed it would be.

We have ITC (inter team challenges) that cons... Sat, 30 Jan 2016 22:38:45 EST Super hot BF - annoyingly naturally skinny My fiance who lives with me eats whatever he wants and always looks great. Plus he loves to cook and is very good at it - this is a terrible thing to complain about!!! It really hurt his feelings when I began refusing his grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. But we got through that. He is such a sweetheart and says he would love me at any weight, which I know he would. So he can't understand my weight loss journey or why it is important to me. Any suggestions or folks in the same boat? Fri, 23 Oct 2015 16:45:50 EST Did/Would you ask the father before propsing? Just curious really <BR> <BR> Did/Would you ask the father before proposing? Thu, 13 Aug 2015 17:14:33 EST Maid of Honor Bailed - Am I being catty? My maid of honor bailed out of my wedding party because I don't have her children apart from it. She said she needs to do what is right for her kids. She doesn't want to leave them alone while I get married. She thought that she might be able to hold her youngest one during the ceremony, and have them sit at the head table with us, and be in the limo and during pictures. I said these are no kid area's. My step son will be the only child standing up during the ceremony and he will only be at t...
