Made it to the final round!

Thanks to everyone who voted for us in Northern Virginia Magazine's Dream Wedding Contest! We made it to the final final round! We love you guys so much, and we're so thankful for you. And we're soooo freakin' excited. It would be such a blessing to win a wedding. Even though we've been engaged for awhile, we haven't been able to start wedding planning (much to my frustration), because we didn't know how we would pay for it. But this isn't just a wedding we're in the running to win, it's a dream wedding. Sigh.

We're going to need your help again in a week when voting starts for the final round. So get ready! I will blog throughout the voting period, and if we win, throughout the whole wedding planning process too. I've missed blogging, and I think I'm ready jump back in.

We filmed our second video for the contest yesterday. This time the professionals filmed it. They asked us some surprise questions...yikes! Let's just see how the video turns out. Jamal and I won't see each other's responses until the videos are posted. Oh goodness. For me at least, it was one of those things where I thought of waaay better answers an hour later. Like when you think of an awesome comeback 10 minutes after the relevant conversation went down, but by that point no one can appreciate your wit. Yeah, just like that.
