- Wedding: June 2013
Okay, I really don’t mean to sound like I am bragging, but I am just so excited that I want to share this news with everyone. After all the drama that has happened, I feel like it is totally worth it because of this one thing! I promise, I really don’t mean to sound like I am bragging, so I am really sorry if it does!
So, tonight we had Thanksgiving at the Future In Laws house, and we started discussing wedding plans. FI and I hadn’t booked our honeymoon yet because we didn’t know where we were going to go. We had one place in mind, a resort in Maui, but at $900/night we just couldn’t see us paying for more than 2-3 night,s not including the airfare to FLY to Hawaii. So instead we were trying to find a place in the Florida Keys, but Sis had made a comment about how they were going to the Keys for their Honeymoon and that she thought it was “cute” that I was copying her idea. After that comment I just wanted something totally different, so we looked for other places. (And yes, I know it was a horrible reason, but I seriously don’t want to give my sister even the THOUGHT of me copying her honeymoon after she stole my wedding day. Grr – yeah still bitter about that-).
FMIL and FFIL smiled and listened to FI and I talk about honeymoon plans over dinner and then for dessert we sat outside and enjoyed chocolate fondue (their family tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas). FFIL said he heard the phone ring and went inside. A few minutes later he came out with this black binder with a bow on it and handed it to me. I went to pass it off to FI but he said “No, you open it!” Inside was the CONFIRMATION for reservations at the resort in Maui for 7 freakin’ days!!!!! ANNNNNND the confirmation for the flights to Hawaii…. FIRST FREAKIN CLASS! PLUS the reservation for a 2 1/2 hours couples massage on the 2nd day of our honeymoon! I literally could not breathe. I broke down in tears crying I was so happy. I mean, oh my gosh, my heart is racing now just typing it out. FI was in on it, and he helped his parents make the reservations and everything, and he has kept this from me for 2 week now! I am so over the moon right now, just wanted to share because I’m so happy. This is better than any honeymoon I could have asked for! My FILs are so amazing and I am so thankful and greatful. Words cannot describe how much this means to me!
