The Big Reveal
There were two parts to my surprise. And Jim got both of them in his first two comments. I confirmed the first one in Jim’s comments – I was hoping someone would echo Jim’s second comment and thus collect some points. But alas, no one did and I am therefor still in the top 5 for the snooze points race! Whoo Hoo!!
Anyway – back to the news. First, yes – we are expecting. After the first attempt didn’t work out so well, we decided to try and keep this one a little more low-key. It’s been hard – hard to keep your emotions and excitement in check, and maybe even a little disappointing in that we didn’t allow ourselves to believe it as much as we did with Thumper. As of last Wednesday, we surpassed the 14 week mark and landed firmly into the second trimester. We are happy and excited! (and Tiffani – it’s just one – I’d be seriously freaking if it were twins)
The second part of the story is GF’s (which has always stood for Gorgeous Fiancée) need of a new moniker. Fiancée is no longer the proper way to address a married woman. I hinted about our plans way back in September with this post.
Last weekend, we went to Vegas. Alas, we didn’t do the drive-thru and there wasn’t a pink caddie in sight. But Elvis was there and he helped seal the deal. In fact, he wrote and led us in our vows:
I, [Clancy], swear to be all shook up, and love you tender ‘cause I’m stuck on you. I promise I won’t be cruel, I won’t have suspicious minds, and I’ll be your hunka, hunka burning love so be my little good luck charm.
I, [the soon to be Mrs. Clancy], will never treat you wrong, I will love you daddy all night long, I will be your teddy bear, I will wear your ring around my neck. If you treat me nice you’ll always be on my mind ‘cause you’re my tiger man.
Needless to say, the entire ceremony was a hoot. And not nearly as cheesy as you might expect. More kitchy, than cheesy.
So... after much debate, I think I've settled on simply calling the "woman formally know as GF", "Mrs. Clancy." She seems to really like the Mrs. part.Posted by Clancy at February 27, 2005 8:55 PM
