I'm a watchaholic

You want to know the easiest way to drive me crazy? Lock me in a room so that I'll be late to something. It could be something simple, something you can show up late to and I'll still be climbing the walls, clawing off the wallpaper, and chewing my own leg off (assuming you have to use a coyote trap as well).

The second way is to just take away my watch. I have been wearing a watch since I was in the 7th grade. It's become habit for me to always know what time it is as I just have to look down at my wrist (I am one of those weirdos who doesn't carry my cellphone, or a purse for that matter).
I am proud of my watch tanline

So due to my habit I always wear an Ironman Timex (It takes a licking and keeps on ticking, even if you take it swimming in a pool or smash it onto a shelf). But, alas, my usual watch just isn't dressy enough for the wedding (or as my fiance's side says wearing a watch is Bohemian. I have no idea what that means as all I associate that word with are the bug eyed Olsen Twins, but I'm guessing it isn't a good thing).

Thus begins my hunt for a fancy dress up type watch that isn't too expensive (I suppose I could always get a pocket watch and then give it to a groomsman later but that won't hide my tan line).
The top watch to the left is priciest of the three
this watch can bring together any gold and silver accessories you have.

For the more traditional pearls and lace bride
this watch to the right can be a nice substitute for a bracelet.

Found from my favorite place for jewelry (
I love the simpleness of the blue used for this watch.
And easy way to have your "something blue" if
you aren't as crazy about it was me.

I have no idea what watch I'll wind up getting, but I'm glad to see that there are some options for brides. Even if it makes me "bohemian" to want to start my wedding on time and not have to hunt down a clock to make sure. (Here's hoping I don't automatically check it while during the ceremony).

I know I'm already weird for wearing my glasses (though I am going to keep my hair long, for a short hair bride check out She Weds) adding on the watch and the fact that I'm not really wearing a bridal gown and I may be in the running for weirdest bride of the year.

HP (my best friend) keeps telling me I shouldn't wear a watch because it's my wedding day.

Er, duh, I wear a watch every day. How is it going to increase my enjoyment of the day if I don't wear one?!

Mine has blue on it too, but so does a lot of my stuff ;)

I've got some cherokee in me. I just look at the sun and I tan. Not as much as my Dad though. He all but turns red for a tan.
