Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here’s my wedding blog, call me”¦Miss Phone Booth!
I have loved Weddingbee for quite some time and I am super thrilled to be here and have earned my stripes. I was cuddled up all cozy on the couch, hiding from Winter Storm Hercules, when an email came to my phone from Mrs. Mouse. I had applied to the ”˜Bee once before and had been rejected (womp womp), so I tried to not get my hopes up too high. Luckily for me, it was an acceptance letter and I screamed and shrieked in delight. I immediately texted Mr. PB (he was at work) and called a couple of my bridesmaids. I just kept yelling “I’M A BEE! I’M A BEE!” Ahhh!
So now that you’ve learned that I’m super corny and get excited all the time, let me tell you a bit about the Phone Booths.
Oh heeeeyyyyy! We’re the Phone Booths! / Personal photo
This is not the first wedding I have planned. In my 29 years of life thus far, I have often dreamed of weddings with various pop stars and celebrities such as Jordan Knight, Taylor Hanson, Justin Timberlake, and Joba Chamberlain. A lover of weddings, I have a collection of wedding books and magazines that somehow didn’t scare Mr. Phone Booth off. I also have an addiction to Diet Mountain Dew, a serious collection of office and craft supplies, and a slight obsession with Christmas, especially wrapping paper. I am a Rochester, New York native who spent seven years in other cities (Buffalo, Daytona Beach, and Toledo), only to realize I’ve always belonged here. I work in school public relations full time and moonlight as a statistician for a local college athletics department.
West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where he spent most of his days”¦OK, not really, but Mr. Phone Booth is able to recognize any episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air within three seconds. That’s fitting, seeing as he normally doesn’t stay on a TV channel for much longer than that. He has a penchant for daily deal websites, random YouTube videos (especially Prank vs. Prank), Craigslist, electronics, and researching potential trips, homes, or adventures. Actually, he likes to research everything. A 24-year-old technical support representative for a wireless carrier, Mr. Phone Booth loves to spend his time dreaming up his next adventure or get-rich-quick plan.
Together, we love sports (I’m converting him to my teams slowly but surely), NYC (we try to go once a year), and crime shows (we watched the entire series of Law and Order: SVU when we started dating). I bring logic and organization to the relationship, whereas Mr. Phone Booth infuses spontaneity and plenty of laughter into our lives.
Just a month into our relationship, we were already sporting the each other’s teams’ colors. May not seem like a big deal, but for two diehard fans, this was a pretty big sign that there was definitely something there. / Personal photo
So why the Phone Booths? [SPOILER ALERT] Mr. Phone Booth and I met while working for a wireless phone carrier, so it seemed fitting to go with the Phone Booth. Plus, it’s ADORABLE! Also, I love peanut butter; it’s my kryptonite. What does peanut butter have to do with a phone booth? Well, from here on out, Mr. Phone Booth is going to be known as Mr. PB. (See what I did there?)
Well, that’s all I have for now, hive. I’ll be sure to give you a buzz later. (I can’t promise I will stop with the puns, but I will try my best.)
Freeing up the party line,
Miss Phone Booth
