Nancy’s first freak-out

Category: Blog — NanGabe @ 1:11 pm

Yes, I know it is only January 14th (161 days, 3 hours, and 32 minutes until the ceremony) but Nancy has officially started to freak out. An unfinished hotel is already completely booked with guests coming to a local horse show and now Nancy is worried that all guests will be camping on our postage stamp sized yard. Ahh brides!

On a positive note the tablecloth fabric has been procured and the bride, Vesna (sewing all dresses, including the bride’s), and Lorna are shopping for dress fabric and shoes today. Obviously the wedding website is coming along swimmingly (thanks, Sean) and will be more informative once Nancy and Gabe are able to come up north for a visit.

So there will be more info to follow and if you see or talk to Nan let her know that it will all work out perfectly, just like in a fairy tale.


  1. I would like to comment on the “bride’s first freak-out”
    First, I would like to say that Nancy is one of the most rational and wise person I have ever met – always calm, greeting all of life’s ups and downs with a zen-like serenity , so I can only imagine that the “freak-out” was overrated – maybe the bloggee miscalculated the tears and hysteria in her voice for allergies, or the early morning hour – who knows…? all I can say is that, thanks to Sandy and Sean and their literally “driving the distance”, the bride is confident that all of the guests will have a roof over their heads –
    A woman born under the Sign of Cancer, does not lean toward emotional ups and downs, nor does she “freak-out” unless absolutely necessary!

  2. We were supposed to look for shoes that day, too?! YOU never told me that…. I’m feeling duped, Ms. Bride-to-be. Felt as if I’d accomplished our goal for the day, but lo and behold (hey-what are we beholding so lo-like, anyways?), I was mistaken…

    As for “nangabe” vs. “gabenan”, the former sounds less like a japanese robot than the latter. Somehow I think folk(s) would pronounce the “e” between “gab” & “nan”. Not so nice, right, Mr. Groom-to-be? Don’t fret, Gabe. Noticed you were bolded in the Welcome and not Nancy so someone over at S&S is on your side. Wonder who, though….

    Finally, re the “bride’s first freak-out”, I do think it was just a simple misunderstanding. The mascara wand was still poking out of Nancy’s eyeball when I arrived! Nothing more than a little slip of the hand to get the tears flowing….

    I stand by my account, by the way. Will hold up under oath in court? Close enough for government work, as the say….

  3. Yes, me again. Just wanted to say to Sean and Sandy, hats off, kids. Hats off! Shoes, too, when in the house……

  4. I wanted to comment about said “freak out” earlier, however, I refrained for I felt there was substantial research needed. Turns out that Nancy’s frenzied response was merely because Venus was in retrograde as Mars crossed Aries axis and Barney’s sample sale was at its midpoint. These things are to be expected!Cancer women are momma’s to the world and sometimes carry it’s weight. Therefore, it was a natural release of emotion. When the words “it puts the lotion in the basket” follow said response, then we as the bridal party must intervene. Until then, mai tais for all!!
