I'm so excited! I'm so excited!

Hey there Hive, or as they say on the campus of my Alma mater "Howdy!" Any other Aggies out there? I know you are Miss Cardigan :)

I don't think words can express how incredibly excited I am to be the newest Bee blogger!  I was in the middle of 5 work conference calls on a Friday (who schedules meetings on Fridays?!?!) when I checked my iPhone and saw the welcome email from Mrs. Penguin.  I seriously jumped around our apartment (yes, you read that right.  I lucked into a job where I can often work from home) for 15 minutes before beginning the calls to Mama Elephant, Mr. E & my bridesmaids. 

So who are the Elephants?

Mr. Elephant and I are another success story.  We started emailing each other in March 2007, went on our first date one month later and haven't looked back.  I work in the financial world while Mr. E is doing double duty as a retail store manager while going to school to finish up his IT degree.  We live together with my little rescue dog Gypsy, and are planning and paying for (with the help of my parents) our big day.


Why Miss Elephant?  I had a minor obsession with elephants back in elementary school.  In fact one of our school assignments was to write a report on an animal.  The best report for each animal won a paper mache version of it.  Guess who won the elephant?  Yep, yours truly.

The icon is super cute and blue which happens to be one of our wedding colors. I've may have also mimicked elephants once or twice on vacation.

I can't wait to catch you all up on the planning good times I've had in the past year and a half and share the remaining time of our 25 month journey with you!
