I mentioned this on the list… but I’m pretty sure this is my week!!
Previous story here…
On Saturday I went with one of my friends to a wedding show at the convention center. SO was excited for me to bring home wedding-related info. We kept calling it my “fact finding” mission as we’re not even sure we want to have a small cocktail-style wedding, or a courthouse ceremony and a dinner with our parents or a full-blown shebang.
Anyway, we’d decided a month ago ago that November 2012 would probably be when we wanted to do it, if not sooner (don’t want a long engagement) and we decided a few other details we were sure of – under 100 people and we want his dad to officiate.
My friend is getting married in July and she’s been engaged since last May, so she kept being like, “Wow, you guys are so much further in the planning process than I am!” (Which isn’t true because without being “actually” engaged, I haven’t been able to ask my parents or his parents if they are contributing anything and therefore have no idea what my budget is…but I digress).
I cam home and shared a couple ideas with SO, he looked at some venues and asked me to make appointments for us to see them and I said something to the effect of “Well, but I want to actually BE ENGAGED before we go see places!” (teasingly, I don’t actually care, for all intents and purposes we are engaged, except for the ring thing and except for the fact that our parents don’t know yet and I’m fine going to see venues without a ring on my finger).
He said, “Don’t worry about it.” And then later admitted that my ring – on order for 2 weeks – was shipped on Friday. Hooray!
My birthday is Wednesday – the only x factor is whether or not it’s small enough to fit in our apartment box or if it will end up in the manager’s office…in which case he won’t be able to get it until Saturday since we get home from work after the manager’s office closes.
