Nothing that I can think of now… I’m sure it’ll come to me though.

I will miss spending money on frivolous things like clothes and cute purses, and shoes!!! Now that we’re combining finances I feel guilty about spending money on things I dont need.

Having my money be my money, now I have to share and save together!

Traveling with friends, not that I won’t be able to now, but now I have to worry about the boy being home alone and feeling guilty.

Flirting… I am a total flirt, and obviously gave it up a long time ago… but I love having drinks bought for me!

I’ll miss not being able to make big decisions by myself.
Not being able to make a quick dinner every night of a week that I don’t feel like cooking.
Not being able to pick up and drive out of town to visit friends whenever I feel like it.
Being able to keep money or life facts to myself.
Losing some of my privacy.

I think that I will miss my dinners by myself.  Not because I enjoy eating alone (or just with my daughter) but because it’s just cereal.  Or cheese toast.  Or buttered rice.  Garlic bread. 

Nothing really healthy.  And that won’t fly in a married household!

Ummm. I’m still married and get to do all those things! Muah ha ha!

I will probably stuff my face less with him around. I know I’d get “THE LOOK” for, say, eating a spoonful of butter shamelessly off my spoon. Or dipping my crackers into it. Embarassed. Sometimes i’m embarrassed by what I eat!

um yea, I second fiftyfoodbride…I’m going to miss my wonderful health insurance that I don’t have to pay for (well I pay for my visits and perscripts, but not for the coverage- my dad’s employer covers a lot of it for the family). Sigh…

Is it sad that I don’t miss anything?  I’m a happily married kid!

FI and I already live together — so he knows what I eat and what my habits are. I will miss: filing income taxes separately and each getting a refund instead of filing together and potentially owing!

Also, my middle name. I’ve loved it growing up — it’s so much fun to sign in cursive and I think it’s so pretty. However, I’m sacrificing it so that my maiden last name will become my new middle name.

Otherwise, I can’t wait to be married! 😀

I agree with the rest of the ladies, Ill miss the freedom of easy thrown together dinners, late night ice cream runs with the girls, random sleepovers with your friends just so you can keep chatting about your night out, being messy sometimes, spending money on frivilous pleasures (and being the only one who knows I’m broke for a week after buying that purse lol), running out and buying a new shirt instead of going to the laundromat lol… just the general freedom of being single and make life decisions of my own, on my own time and by my own rules Smile

I’ll definitely miss my name and having no one to answer to but myself. I hate those raised eyebrows when I come home with yet another pair of shoes. 🙂 I think the freedom will eventually come back, as you find your own rhythm as a couple. Or at least, I hope so!
