Have we found the one?


This is Golden Girl (aka Nicole) coming to you live from Powdered Toast Headquarters with a wedding update for all those interested in the planning. However, before I get to the good details, I must say a few things. First off…for those of you who think I am a heartless person who doesn’t comment on the posts toast man writes about me, it's true I don’t comment, because I am not a fan of blogger. I tell him in person what I think of his posts. The only reason I am writing on this blog now and comment the rare times that I actually do is to make him happy. In a relationship, there must be some give and take…and this is apparently my give.


I guess I will get started now. I would love to tell you all about our latest adventure in wedding planning. We went out to visit this place called Green Tree Country Club in New Rochelle (New York). Actually, we went and saw this other catering place first, which I’m not even gonna talk about because its not worth mentioning. Anyways back to Green Apple…I mean Green Tree. This is the place I want to get married at. When we were in this place, I got butterflies in my stomach. This place is a historical landmark, a beautiful mansion over 100 years old. This very nice, charming old man and his wife bought this place and turned it into a magnificent wedding/event venue. This place has all original stuff…its HUGE! They have their own huge kitchen and bakery. They even have their own $400,000 back up generator that can probably light up the whole city in the event of a power outage….and the food possibilities are endless.


This is a family run place and the man who bought it is so cute. He is an older gentlemen (ask toast man, I love old men) and I think he took a liking to me, or at least did a very good job selling that feeling to me. What I liked about his style was that he took us on a tour first before going over prices and all that jazz. He is definitely a family man because he was showing us pictures of his grandchildren and telling us about his kids. It feels like our every whim would be met here.


We walked out to the ceremony site where we would actually get married, in the gardens, with a beach backdrop. At every other place we looked, I felt that the aisle was too short…I would like a decent walk…not a mile for god sakes, but I don’t wanna rush, take 3 steps and be at the altar either. This place was just right. The ballrooms where the party would be are huge and each are classic and I know we could really rock the house. I’m getting goose pimples thinking about it again.


The only downfall to this place would be the pricing. But compared to everywhere we have seen, this place takes the cake and has the best deals. No ceremony fee or extra gratuity, nor does he except kickbacks from other vendors. What we pay is just the price per plate plus tax and any extra food tables we want that are not included. Its $125 per plate…a lil more then I wanted…I just don’t know if I will find a place that will give me that feeling again. I DON’T WANT TO SETTLE!


Thinking about marrying toast man gives me the best feeling inside. I see myself walking down the aisle to him and becoming Mrs. Powdered Toast Man. I think about it everyday. I cant wait to be a wife and mother. I love you with all my heart and soul, especially when you hold me close like you did at Green Tree by the water. I know no matter what happens or where we end up, walking down the aisle to you will be the happiest moment of my life.

This is Golden Girl signing off from Powdered Toast Headquarters and remember, I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine.

So jealous......Is there possibly a French Toast brother or a Pancake stack Uncle that needs a good woman? This sounds like an awesome place and I can't wait to hear more!! Hugs to both of yous...(spoken in my best NY Mob accent)

A Melba Toast Nephew perhaps?

TS Hendrik said...

Excellent post, with a great narrative that really painted the scene. Sounds like a really beautiful place.

I do have a question though. Golden Girl, Powdered Toast Man, if you have kids would they be cinnamon toast crunch or golden grahams?

That sounds like an awesome place to get married. You are sure to have a lot of memories from there. I can see that you don't want to settle and I think you will be happy you didn't!
Congratulations in advance!!!

This is very sweet, and it's nice to meet the soon-to-be-Mrs.-Powdered-Toast-Man. Don't settle. You picked a good one. Could you get him to ease up a bit with his quiz questions, though?
PS I'm with Seductress. I'd settle for a sausage link.

Very sweet. I think this place is where you MUST get married. We felt that way when we first found our wedding site. That's great that they don't charge an extra fee. We paid like $1500 just to have our ceremony at our hall.

I can't wait to hear more :)
