- Wedding: July 2012
Okay so I am in a much happier place than I have been in my recent posts. To be honest, I was getting discouraged about not being able to have a date set because SO wanted to wait and had all of these excuses. But I think Im finally starting to see a light at the end of this dark tunnel.
As I mentioned in my last post, my SO was waiting to be financially stable before even setting a date (which really upset me). Well he started this new job a few weeks ago and although he has no off days (and is often tired), he was riddled with joy when he got paid twice. He even mentioned that he was offered another job that pays twice as much as BOTh of his jobs he works now (meaning he would quit one or both of the lower paying jobs if hired).
He came home so happy last night about having extra funds to spend especially for my bday coming up in a few weeks. I was actually a little irritated after a night of reading WeddingBee posts about men waiting forever to propose let alone get married, but I was happy that he was happy. I didnt dare mention anything about setting a date, although I wanted to. Well out of nowhere he starts talking about being able to save up money now for something big. I said “What the heck would you have to be saving for? We already are caught up on bills.” I know that sounds crazy but I was in a pissy mood thinking about how I was never going to get married. He said with a smirk, ” Oh you will see soon. Something well overdue” Then he came and gave me the biggest hug and kiss. I still didnt mention anything about a wedding date (I didnt want to spoil the mood). So maybe…just maybe we can get this ball rolling.
Now I just hope that we can set a date soon…Im hoping March of next year (but the venue only has one weekend in March that has not been booked). Any thoughts/ suggestions?
