Yesterday, I picked up my wedding dress, got the veil and headpiece, and then dropped my sister off at home after having lunch with Mom, Sis, and FI. On the way home, we passed a house that’s up for sale which caught FI’s eye, so when we got back home he hopped on the ‘net to check it out. Lo and behold, it’s newly remodeled with gorgeous features and in our price range with his V.A. homeloan. We just have to qualify, and it could easily be a reality.
So, just to recap, in one day I picked up my wedding dress and became a potential homeowner. A year ago, we were just dating…
Honestly, I’m happy about everything that’s happened. Thrilled, even. It’s just overwhelming that so much can happen in such a short amount of time, and on top of that have none of it feel wrong. It’s like things are literally falling into place. Part of me is waiting for the other shoe to drop, and the other more spritual part is telling me to trust in the Divine and everything is all right. For someone that researches and questions and second guesses and then researches again (everything from major life decisions to small home appliances), it’s so different. But I kind of like it.
Anyone else ever feel this way?

Yes! ha you so are not alone. When my FI and I first got engaged I was sooo excited, but so nervous to tell everyone because our relationship was so fluid and natural I thought something will happen. A year and a half later no major problems or arguments. I say just enjoy the ride for now! Congrats on finding your dress and maybe a new house!

You are definitely not alone! These are big life changes and it is exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Take it all in bit by bit!

totally feel that way! so far, the wedding planning has gone so smoothly, and we keep making so many decisions so quickly, i keep feeling like something is going to go wrong or we’ll realize we made a rushed mistake about something. but really, i’m so completely excited about it all, and even though we’ve been decisive, i don’t think it’s been rushed…but i can’t even really think about all the grad schoool applications i’ve submitted or the whole question about where we’ll be moving, assuming i’m accepted anywhere….i’m worried that’ll be the other shoe dropping…

That’s amazing! Sometimes it just happens like that and it gets a bit overwhelming but that’s fantastic, really. 🙂 I’d LOVE to find a house like that….

Congratulations! I know it’s cliche, but sometimes things really do happen a lot faster than we could ever imagine. Sometimes everything just falls into place. Enjoy it for now. Don’t worry about what might or might not happen. Good luck in the rest of your wedding planning and the house. It sounds wonderful.

I can totally relate to that “waiting for the other shoe to drop” feeling! Sometimes I take stock of my life and realize how great I really have it. I have a great family, all the education I’m going to need, a job that pays me more than I ever expected, an awesome fiance, a nicer house than I thought I could ever afford… not to mention the coolest dog ever! heh. It feels almost like one person shouldn’t be so lucky…. which is why I thank God every night for my blessings and I work really hard to be grateful for everything I’m lucky enough to have rather than take it for granted.
