Honk for Hello! The Geese Have Landed.

Hello, Beehive! I’m so happy and excited to be here and share my wedding-planning adventure with you all!

When I got my email from Mrs. Mouse, I was at work, giving our receptionist her break. I almost screamed with excitement, until I remembered I was sitting between three doors that anyone could walk through at any time. So, instead, I settled with a giddy expression and a few excited texts. I’m pretty sure I spent the entire break looking like this:

So, who are the Geese?

I’m Miss Goose, arts administrator by day, wedding enthusiast by night, sock mismatcher always. Gander is in customer service, and has a love of Elvis Presley, hockey, and football. (Side note: Do not mention the Super Bowl to him—it’s a sore spot right now.) We met three and a half years ago through a well known dating website, and have been practically inseparable ever since.

We’re an easy-going couple, who love to try new restaurants we find on Groupon, traveling to Niagara Falls for short getaways, and relaxed nights with our favourite TV shows (HIMYM, anyone?). We’re also the proud pet parents to our two-and-a-half-year-old cat, Elvis.

Now, why Miss Goose?

Being Canadian, the goose is our national bird and a proud symbol. Actually, it’s all because of a random conversation. When I was waiting to hear about my application, I mentioned the available characters to my mom and Gander, and her reply was “You mean, I could be Mother Goose?” Once we saw the potential, I knew Goose had to be mine! Fun fact: As a child, Miss Goose was actually goosed by a real goose.

We’re planning a traditional Canadian Reform Jewish wedding, with some Celtic influences, as well as some personal touches of our own. I hope you all enjoy seeing what’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander.

    Hi Miss Goose, welcome welcome! We’ve got Canadian geese that hang around my office’s complex and they’re pretty darn vicious…but I wouldn’t go holding that against you! 😉

    Thank you everyone for the kind welcome!

    @Miss Parisian: @Miss Filly: Elvis says hello, too! 😉

    @Mrs. Waterfall: Puns were one of the things that drew me to Goose 😀 PS. For the next couple of weeks, we can put aside Leafs/Habs, and just agree Go Team Canada!

    @Miss Pyramid: I’ve seen them be vicious (read my fun fact) but I’m here to improve their image!

    @tropicalfish914: @MrsMermaid: I’m happy to be here for all the Torontonians!

    @Miss Llama: Thank you, fellow new bee! Can’t wait to see how your theatre background comes in to play, too

    @Miss Wellies: @Miss Milk Cow: Thank you! I’m looking forward to seeing what Jewish traditions you two end up incorporating as well!

    @MissGoldFish: Excellent taste in television, I must say 😉

    Sigh – I’m still sad about the Super Bowl, too. Tell Mr. Goose I’m with him.
