Hi, hive! I’m Miss Bunny, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be here.
I’ve been a fan of Weddingbee since before my engagement last September, and I started my own blog within a week of getting engaged. It seems unbelievable that I’m finally here as a Bee!
Mr. Bunny and I met through work. We’re reporters who write for competing weekly newspapers, so we got to know each other at school board meetings and at parties with mutual friends.
Out with work friends, May 2008
My first memory of Mr. B was when we were both sent out to cover a tornado and he tried to butt in on my interview with a Red Cross worker!
Needless to say, the competitive dynamic makes for an interesting romantic relationship. We’ve had to keep strict rules about not discussing work before our Tuesday afternoon deadlines.
OK, honestly, it’s mostly my fault. I’m the competitive one.
Fortunately, Mr. Bunny is much more laid back than little ol’ me. He’s a country boy who likes to hunt, watch movies and sing karaoke. He’s only been on a plane once in his life — the second time will be for our honeymoon!
I, on the other hand, am a military brat (Coast Guard, in case you’re wondering). I spent junior high and high school in the D.C. ‘burbs before my parents moved back to Columbus, which is their hometown. After four years at college in Kentucky, I moved to Buckeye country (holla, Mrs. Quiche and Mr. Yorkie!) and got a job. I’ve been here ever since.
I love to bake, craft, browse antique stores, and spend lots of time with friends and family.
Since we’re both reporters, you can bet our budget is itty-bitty! We’re trying to plan a casual wedding with vintage flair for 170 guests on about $5,000, give or take a bit. I’m going a little broke in the process, but totally loving it.
Like Miss Yorkie, I’m only a little over a month away from my nuptials. I’m so glad I get to share these last days of planning with you!
