- Wedding: August 2013
I’ve been following the boards for awhile now, but this is my first post here 🙂 I would really appreciate any ideas you could throw my way!
Long story short, I work full time and my fiance was laid off a few weeks ago. With the wedding in August, money is really tight right now (pretty much nonexistent outside of paying bills). He’s had a few job interviews this week and we’re hopeful, but next Thursday is Valentine’s and Tuesday is his 30th birthday. He has something planned for Valentine’s (a surprise, I don’t know what), and we’ve agreed that I’ll make his favorite dinner that night.
For his birthday, I have nothing 🙁 I’ll obviously get him a card, but we really can’t afford for me to buy him a gift, and if I’m making a big dinner on Thursday, I feel like dinner on his birthday too won’t really be a big deal. I know he understands and knows how much I love him, but I just feel really terrible. His 30th birthday is a big deal and he deserves to have an amazing day, and right now I feel like I’m not going to be able to give that to him.
So bees, any advice is apreciated! Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do for him to make his birthday special?
