- Wedding: December 2012
…and it was better than expected. My SO’s cousin got married this weekend. Their wedding was very fun and happy and I had a great time, adore the couple, etc. Luckily this side of his family is not too nosy so the “when are you too getting engaged??” comments were at a minimum, only maybe 2 all night with some small hinting by other people. The last wedding we went to we (I!!) got asked this 10+ times and it started to get old, and I was dreading it this time around. Anyway, his family is very sweet and multiple people told me they feel like i’m already a part of the family, they wanted me to be included in the family pictures, etc. My SO kept telling me you’ll be family soon, telling everyone how much he loved me, talked to his brothers about who he’d want making his best man speech, etc etc. (he was a bit tipsy). This is very sweet but makes me super ansty, like… DO it already! what is the hold up?? haha. I also hope that he means that it will be frickin soon and wasn’t just drunkenly saying that.
We are going on a big vacation in about a month and I think he might do it then but the negative nancy part of me says, that would be less of a suprise and he won’t do it then. My mom is super excited for wedding planning, and ever since i told her my BF and i were probably getting engaged in the next year or so, she has slowly transformed from normal laid back mom, into a TLC wedding show watching, wedding magazine buying, crazy mom. She keeps saying stuff like, I have a feeling it’ll be soon…I just have a feeling…I just want to do some research since it’s been so long since anyone in our family got married, etc. She actually called like 5 venues in our area to ask about pricing and pulled pages out from bridal mags of dresses she thinks i’d like and showed them to me. This again is sweet that she’s excited, but i get tired of hearing about weddings from her, it doesn’t help the waiting situation. I told her that I understand she’s excited but I prefer she doesn’t do anymore “research” until I actually have a ring on my finger. OYYYY. anyway, that’s about all from my weekend update. off to watch my tv programs, hope everyone had a nice weekend. thanks! :o)
