Bride-to-be Blogger Kathleen: Here I Am!

Kathleen and her fiance Christian.

Hola, mis amigos! That’s Spanish for, “Hello my friends!”… I think. I am totally pumped about this relationship we’ve just started together! Whether you like it or not, I have just deemed us all Internet BFFs. I think my posts might be a bit different than what you are used to, but I hope you all enjoy my style. I am a huge goof and I love making people laugh. As my fiancé would say, I’m a bit of a ham. With that said, please fasten your seatbelts, keep all arms and legs (?) inside the vehicle at all times, and get ready to join in on the wild ride of KJ and Christian’s wedding.

My “grown-up” name is Kathleen, but all of my friends and privileged associates refer to me as KJ. I grew up in a small town in the Pocono area and moved to Philadelphia when it was time for me to do the college thing. I decided to stay in the area after graduation, and I currently live in Conshohocken with my lovely fiancé Christian.

Christian and I met the way God intended — at a bar in Old City. I was looking like a million bucks in my brown sweater vest and amazed him with my sultry bar-dancing skills. (Let me tell you ladies, you can never go wrong with performing the Carlton or the Sprinkler on top of a bar — especially in a sweater vest. Hook, line, and sinker.)

Needless to say, the rest is history. We became an engaged couple back in December and have set our date for June 29th, 2012 in Malvern. So, here we go: Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee wedding planning!

So, here goes nothing! Please follow along with me as I blabber on about wedding planning, and how “I can’t even put on my own make up let alone tell my friends what dress color matches their skin tones,” and all that. I’m really looking forward to it — and all suggestions are welcome!
