Me and My Llama!

Does anyone else remember this bizarre Sesame Street sketch?

Hello, hive!!!

So, I’ve been a Weddingbee reader for around four years, and dating Mr. Llama for around three and a half…and probably around two years ago, I thought to myself, “If I ever get to blog for Weddingbee, it would be perfect if they had a Llama available…”

What are the freaking chances?? I mean, right??

You see, Mr. Llama and I call each other “LOML” all day long (it’s an abbreviation for Love of My Life…cue the “awwwwww”). We say it the way anyone else would say “babe” or “sweetie” or “honey.” And every once in a while, I’ll sing the “Me and My Llama” song, but with LOML in place of llama.

I really cannot believe that I’m ACTUALLY Miss Llama, after all that!

Mr. Llama and I are just under six months out from our destination wedding at…Disney World! We are self-admitted Disney freaks—in fact, Mr. Llama insists that I appeared uninterested in him UNTIL he mentioned that he came from a “Disney family.” (Not true at all…I actually made quite the effort to specifically go talk to him that fateful night!)

Picture

I’ve had so much fun already just blogging for myself, so I can’t IMAGINE how fun it’s going to be to actually have a community of brides to have a dialogue with! And get advice from! I’ve been such a regular reader of Weddingbee over the years that it definitely feels surreal to be on the “other side” of the hive.

And truthfully, I have to thank Mr. Llama—he was the one that encouraged me to start blogging and apply, despite feeling like I would never have enough free time. (Such is the life of a first-year teacher…) In the last few years, I made the transition from actor to teacher, and while I do love teaching, it was Mr. L that saw that I still needed a creative outlet that wasn’t job related. He was so right. I’m so glad he convinced me to go through with it.

I can’t wait to get started. AHHHHH!!!! I’m a BEEEEE!!!!

See ya real soon!

    @Miss Clover: aaaand I already managed to mess up the ‘reply’ feature – haha! Clover, I thought for sure I wouldn’t get picked as a Bee since there was another Chicago teacher in the midst! Thanks for the welcome :)@Miss Milk Cow: I’m glad you didn’t too!@Miss Parisian: I lived in France for 3 years as a kid, so if Parisian had still been available, it would have been a tough choice, but I’m glad I’m a Llama.@Mrs. Road Trip: Hope you enjoyed your Disney-moon!! (That was you, right? Pretty sure…)@MissGoldFish: Mr. Llama and I once saw a cake topper with LOML spelled out, and we were like “WHAT?? WHO STOLE THAT?? Then we realized it’s likely pretty common, haha!

    @Mrs. Bighorn Sheep: I did not know of this Llama song until you and LAB mentioned it! Well, now it must be my theme song.
    I also feel like the Bighorn Sheep and Llama icons are long lost cousins or something…it’s those cute black eyes, I think!

    YES! Growing up, that was my favorite Sesame Street sketch! I even made my mom record it on a cassette tape so I could listen to the song over and over. :)

    I’m also a big Disney fan, and I can’t wait to learn more about your journey and your wedding!
