- Wedding: September 2013
Hey Bees I’m super excited. I’ve mentioned many times that I moved abroad earlier this year and I’m having a small wedding and only one bridesmaid and I’ve been struggling a bit with loneliness, BUT….one of my friends is making the trip to come visit and she said we can have a bridal shower when she gets here! We’re going to invite some ladies from my congregation–and possibly some colleagues, but don’t quote me on that, lol. Now, I’ll have to be somewhat involved in the planning/inviting because it will be at my home and also people here don’t “do” bridal showers so it will be more like just a regular get together. I won’t be expecting gifts or anything, but I’m still very excited. Because I thought I couldn’t have one I convinced myself I didn’t really want one.
P.S. My MOH slapped together a last-minute bachelorette party for me when I went to Florida to visit her. It was me, her and her 50+ year old coworker at a seedy bar with watery drinks where a live band played cheesy early 90s rap songs (think Baby Got Back). When we were finally about to head out (I was hoping to go home and bond and have a girly sleepover), she actually put me in a cab and sent me alone back to her house while she and her coworker hit another bar. Thereafter, my MOH came home drunk and with a guy (at least I think she came home with him as he was certainly there when I got up Sunday morning for service). I was so SO disappointed in that experience, that I actually deleted any and all pictures and tried to block it from my memory. SO excited at the opportunity for a do-over!
