- Wedding: August 2012
The Mr., and I have sort of been arguing about ‘the wedding’ (in quotations, because date has really been set, yet.. we’re just hoping for November 5th) for the past couple of days, now. You see, we also really want to purchase a home, and I think that should be our first priority (although, he doesn’t believe me one bit). As much as I want to marry him, and finally be his wife after almost 10½ years, a house is the more logical/practical choice. I always assumed he felt this way, as well, because in recent talks with my BFF, he said, ““Umm, brighteyedgirl wants a wedding before a house; myself I want a place to call home, and this apartment doesn’t cut it.“
Obviously you can see where his priorities lay, right? Well, I brought this up to him in an e-mail, last night, to which he replied,
“Just ’cause a house is a big want doesn’t mean that I don’t care about getting married…. I don’t want to drag out waiting for a wedding anymore. Why do u think I set date for the fall? The wedding is my first priority so deal with it, and we will be doing it together. I want you to have fun planning, I want you to enjoy this wedding, I want you to be happy.“
The “deal with it/we’ll be doing it together” stems from the fact that I told him if he wants the wedding so badly, he can plan it–I’ll give the input. I’m stubborn like that, sometimes. LOL!
So, we’re in for a ride.. he’s away for the summer for work, and I’ll maybe only see him a handful of times. I have no idea what kind of budget we’re working with (he still hasn’t hashed-out the #s, yet–plus, the job he’s doing this summer will be paying for almost everything), and he’s a better negotiator that I am–he needs to do the big stuff. How can we pull this off?
Will we pull this off?
I guess only time will tell..
