- Wedding: July 2014
The other day I went to visit my father in the hospital after he had a hip replacement. We were just chatting and then he got very serious. He said “I’m going to ask you something… but please don’t get offended.” So I automatically replied, “Daddy, I’m not pregnant.” He then laughed and said “No! That wasn’t what I was going to say! I just wanted to know if you and (FI) were ever going to get married.” I laughed and told him that “Of course we want to. We’re just very broke at the moment.”
He then went on to tell me that due to his hip replacement he won’t be able to kickstart his antique motorcycle anymore. He’s going to sell it and wants to give me the money for a wedding! My jaw hit the floor I was so surprised. It will only be about $4,000 but that’s $4,000 more than what we had! As soon as I got home I told FI and we’ve decided to plan for next September. Don’t you just love good surprises?
Has anyone else had a fantastic surprise recently? (Besides the engagement of course 😉 )
