Fridays with Mr. Milk - Cold Feet

The other night we were visiting my uncle and aunt and I made a joke about having cold feet at the wedding. Although it was understood to be a joke there was a tone of "OMG" in the air which I felt should be clarified. To be honest, it got me thinking "would I be the type that would get cold feet?"

I think the whole thought process happened in my mind after watching the movie "Up in the Air" with George Clooney (awesome movie btw). There is a scene where the groom-to-be is explaining to Clooney why he feels nervous, and he was basically having difficulty realizing that a. he is growing up, and b. that with marriage come responsibilities and more likely than not, kids, expenses, running around, etc.

So back to my little joke at my uncle's house... after blurting out the words "cold feet" I started thinking of what the possibility would be for me to be in that same frame of mind the day of our wedding. If Chocolate Lover is reading this (yeah, big IF there!), I would like to ease your worries by saying that I am beyond that. I feel that I have matured with you already, and I am excited about the added responsibility and running around that would come with marriage. I've never had performance anxiety and I am not about to start on September 25th. 

In the presence of the blogging community and the hundreds of friends/followers you are making, I will promise to you now and forever, that the temperature of my feet will remain at 37C (98.6F).

Love you hun.

Until next Friday, this is Mr. Milk signing off. 

P.S. It would be noteworthy to mention that my aunt told CL that hell would freeze over before they allowed my feet to do the same. :o)
P.P.S. What temperature will your feet be at Ms. Chocolate Lover???

Aw, very cute...I actually found this little template on a blog site that I am going to download and print off. It's a wrap around paper label for a pair of socks that the bride gives to the groom on their wedding day...it says "In case you get cold feet - Your loving bride" :D Mr Fix It will not be getting cold feet, but I am gifting him the socks on the morning of the wedding just for fun ;P

I/we can relate a little to George Clooney, I think! Not that we are having cold feet or second thoughts - but being older (I'm 36 and he's 41) we are very aware of and sobered by the fact that our lives will change. But we know it is for the BETTER! And we are ready to take the plunge, even if our feet feel a little chilly! :)
