    You guys probably missed it......

    You guys probably missed it......I would have too, if I hadn't been watching CNN. They interrupted the broadcast to announce the time. 1:11on 1/11/11. It only happens twice, and I missed the first one! ....unless, of course, you are on a 24 hour clock, in which case, it only happens once!

    Hopefully I'll still be dancing at 11:11 pm but from what I hear about being a bride I'll probably be asleep by then! Lol! I am not a party animal unfortunately and neither is my fiance.

    I attended a wedding on 09/09/1999 at 9pm on the 9th green of my local golf course! :bbg:

    My 36th wedding anniversary. First one spent apart. Our daughter had to go into the hospital New Year's Day with pneumonia and a blood clot in her lungs. So my wife drove her new car I got her for Christmas (Honda Fit) and went to help her out after she got out of the hospital. She's going to leave the car there for our daughter to use for a month or two so she can go get her blood tests done without waiting for a bus in snowy Champaign, IL. So I get to drive up and bring her home.

    Yikes, I hope your daughter is feeling better! What a scary situation! Happy Anny though! :)

    We aren't either but now that the bars are open here until 2:00 and we won't have time to have drinks in between the ceremony and reception, we're hitting them after :bbg:

    If I could change one thing about when we planned our wedding, I would have went for a Fall wedding instead of a Spring. Now we have 3 months left and lots of stuff to do. You and Jacqui probably saw my Facebook status from yesterday ahhhh. Honestly, I never thought about all the 11 in 2011 lol Oops!
