Phew! We made it though our first Marriage Preparation class!

How was it? FUN! It was actually a lot of fun! Ha! Ha!

The class started at 7:30pm, but Mark and I had an appointment to have our picture taken to be added to the church's Parishioner Directory at 7:06pm. Even with the torrential downpour we had to brave, we made it exactly at 7:06pm.

The photo session was actually pretty funny. At first, we didn't know how we should list our names because we aren't married yet. In the end, we decided to go with our first names and Mark's last name. I'm excited to see my name beside his and his last name. =)

As the photographer was telling us how to pose, where to look, etc. he instructed Mark to "lean in more towards your wife". Ahhhh!!! Can you say butterflies?! Ha! Ha! I couldn't stop grinning!

We were about 5 minutes late for our class because we had to choose which pose we liked the best. We were the second last couple to make it and we ended up having to sit at the very front of the class. Right in front of the "teachers". Ha! Ha! There were about 11 other couples in the class - pretty big class!

One of the first things we did was introduce ourselves, how long we've been together, when's our wedding, etc. I'm not going to go into too much detail as to what we covered for those of you who still has to undergo this class. *wink*

What we thought so far:
  • Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. A lot of interactivity with your partner.
  • The course will be very useful in understanding more about ourselves, our partners and our future life to-be together.
  • The tips and advices are great! 
  • Really puts into perspective the sacredness of the occasion. How serious and permanent it is.
So, so far so good! Mark and I left the class with big smiles on our faces.

As excited as I am, I'm actually also pretty nervous because this is making the wedding more and more real! Ahhh!!! More official I guess you could say. Ha! Ha!

365 more days!! >_<
