Let's see if you can guess.

The Man graduated from ASU (go devils!!) last December. Now he wants me to go back to school and finish my degree. So here I am, wracking my brain to think of something I want to do besides writing oodles of best-sellers since that career isn't such a guaranteed win.
So I thought. And thought. And wondered. And scrunched up my face with all the wondering and thinking. This is what I've been thinking. What if I went back to school to become....

A bride? Nope. I've already done that.

Jennifer Lopez? Uh, no. Impossible, not to mention creepy.

Completely insane? Maybe.
Notice the nicely visible amalgam filling on her mandibular right molar. wow. I have been a dental assistant for WAY too long.

Have you put it together yet? If not, keep going.

I'm thinking about becoming...

A tee-shirt.

No, a Wedding Planner. 
But I'm a little freaked out. It's a huge commitment, a lot of money to invest, and I'm not sure I'm cut out for the business-woman thing. Plus I don't want to be the career-oriented type because I want to be a full-time mom someday.

But oh, I love weddings!! I'm hoping I'll get to help plan for my bff's wedding coming up in July. I immediately began thinking up a place for her shower, cake, photographer, flowers, venue for reception...
I'm hopeless.

I also have an eye for details, I like helping people, I'm REALLY used to getting ordered and bossed around, and I am sooooooooooooo ready for a career change. I know that wedding planning is not at all like it is in the movies, but being a part of lots of "big days" would be so cool.

Wouldn't it? I don't know.

I've thought about wedding planning before (I'm currently an event planner for a corporation) so I think it's a great idea!

You should read the Bridal Quartet series by Nora Roberts for your business plan :)

I think it is a great idea! We need to chat more....I had no idea you were thinking about going back to school. You SO SHOULD!! I loved school. Sorry I missed your call today....I'm usually running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Yep that's me. Anyways, I'm rambling. Follow your dreams girl...wherever they lead you.

I bet you would be great at it. And an English degree is fun too! You build up your resume, and when I get married, which will be long enough from now for you to establish yourself, you can plan mine! ;-)
