- Wedding: September 2014
Once again it is time to see how long we can *Audience play-back* SHUT-IT-UP!
That’s right! The game show where we see how long these lovely bees can keep their mouth shut and not mention anything ring/engagement/wedding/marriage related to their SO’s or anyone else highly significant in their lives (ie: mom’s, BFFs, Coworkers, ect.). This is the first game of the 2013! (YAY!). Lets start the year off right and not exhibit behavior that reflects badly on us as waiting bees (that was the nicest way I knew how to say that).
This year we start fresh and so I want to go over the prizes.
If you win one week you will get: The Golden Honey Pot!
If you win more then one week OFFICIALLY you will receive: The Golden Bee Right-Hand-Ring
If there are multiple winners for one week or a bee that qualifies as a “runner-up” then you will receive: The Triple-Bee-Friendship Bracelet.
There are no Boo-Bee prizes for first bee to crack. I don’t like boobie prizes personally.
But there are pop-up prizes for merit, long stretches or time where you have held up the pact & cases of hardship.
We are all there for each other. This pact is there if-and-only-if you feel you need it. There will be times when it is perfectly acceptable to NOT shut-it-up and it is up to the individal bee to decide weither to participate in the pact that week.
Here are the rules/exceptions:
This is only good for our SO’s. But If you are feeling the need to ‘Shut It Up’ in front of other people then please share.
If our SO’s mention Rings/engagement/wedding/marriage first then we have the right to respond, but for Pete’s sake, Be Cool About It!
1/2 point deduction if your SO catches you:
• Watching a wedding show
• Surfing wedding porn on Pintrest
• On the Bee Boards And he makes a face
DISCLAIMER: All Prizes & Points are fictional. I do not know where to get these items. I just looked on Google Images for Bee Themed Prizes. Do an Image search if you wish to actually have these items. There will be no actual points, just a joke.
So practice stealth bees! And good luck!
So I have been engaged for 2 weeks now & it is awesome! I bought my first wedding mag (Martha Stewart Weddings…the inspiration issue..). I really want to shut-it-up about wedding related stuff to my FI and let us enjoy this awesome bubble we are in right now. He wants to not worry about it and just enjoy the new status right now. We are planning a long engagement (18-24 months) so there is no “rush”. I am fleshing out my checklist with my mom and sis (MOH) to make sure I can take my time and not stress out during the last 9 months. The only thing I HAVE to do before June is look at mags, maybe try on some dresses (with no need to buy) and get info on Photographers. No need to put money down on ANYTHING AT ALL until August.
But I did get him to talk about his preferred aesthetic while discussing a tie I thought he’d like and we ended up on deciding a color palate (YAY).
So Imma keep it shut with you guys until at least the end of February.
