- Wedding: June 2013
hi everyone! i am a newbee, just wanted to introduce myself. i’ve been engaged since october 2012, originally FI and i were planning october 18 2014, buttttttt two days after christmas FI’s company announced that they were being bought out and all 30 of the staff were being laid off. we immediately went into panic mode, he applied everywhere he could, including the USAF officer program. last month the company who bought them out hired back 4 people, him included (whew!) but its a trial run for them to see if its worth the money to bring them on full time. in the meantime, he’s going forward with the air force-which is what i think would be best. he took the AFOQT last week and will get his scores this week sometime! the board meets in march, he will find out at that time if he’s accepted into the program.
so all of this is relevant because i have no idea when i’m getting married. it could be march or april or it could be not until next year. i’m having massive anxiety over it, i just want a definitive date. i want to order my dress (from etsy, so gorgeous!) but i don’t know if its too early. i want to make plans for a venue but i don’t even know if we’ll be having a reception! it could just end up being a courthouse wedding with dinner up in boston with our families. either option is really fine with me but i just want to know!!
sorry about the massive rant, i haven’t really been able to get it all out yet. my best friend knows and she’s helping, but no one at work knows yet. (i don’t want my boss finding out until its official)
i know you guys are a super supportive community and i’m really happy to be a part of it!
