Maybe its just me, maybe its the boards. I know we all come here to rant and rave and vent and get advice, but I think it would be lovely if for every bad post their was a decent lovely post.
I know leading up to a wedding is stressful and waiting too, I know relationships are difficult, I know we all come here to vent and request advice but again cant we have some nice post.
But all that being said, I will say this…You are alive and breathing, so life could be worse.
Every day that your breathing you have a chance to change you, your life, your outlook or something.
You are in a relationship of some sort. You should be happy, for me just knowing that I have the opportunity to share my life with my amazing Darling Husband is enough to make me smile every single day,
I know for the waiting bees its hard but be happy for just a moment and revel in your relationship and that moment you knew you were in love.
Like here is my nice post.
When I was in the army, I broke my hip on a mission in Iraq. Even though the break is fixed I still have alot of pain and this very weekend my dear hubby noticed that I have been having more than normal hip pain so first he called my doctor and made me an appointment and then put me in the car and drove me right down to the mattress store and bought us a memory foam bed, and as an added bonus he upgraded our queen bed to a king bed so I would have more room to move around in the middle of the night. I have a great hubby. He is so totally awesome, and the biggest best surprise ever!!???!!?? We went over to furniture row and he let me pick out new living room furniture. I was worried if we could afford it but he said not to worry he had been saving for it for over a year!!!
So lets hear some positive stories from this weekend please!!!

Awwww your story is so sweet! And I think we all could use some positive stories.
My weekend story isn’t as fun as yours. We spent about 10 hours over the weekend digging a hole in our backyard for a new patio. That sounds like a crappy weekend, but I did get to spend the time working and hanging out with my Fiance. Projects like this make me realize how compatible my Fiance and I are; we can just take on a project, agree on what we want, and get it done without any drama or complaints. We’re having a backyard wedding and I think we’re excited about showing off our handiwork next year. My muscles are really sore from the yard work, so my Fiance has been helping walk the dog around the neighborhood (which is normally my job) and letting me rest. It may not be much, but I still appreciate it 🙂

@TexasSpringBride: Love your story! Sorry to hear about your injury, but your husband definitely knows how to take care of you.
@bleusteel: That’s what we’re doing this coming Saturday! My husband’s mom has a house by the beach and we will be spending several hours over there this weekend re-doing their patio. I’m so excited about it!
My husband and I started our weekend early; we went to a local Mediterannean restaurant on Friday night and had a delicious meal. We spent most of Saturday on Catalina Island, came home and had a very yummy dinner (and drinks) with friends late Saturday night. On Sunday we did some general housework and then went to a hockey game together. It was a busy weekend, but I spent almost every minute of it with my BFF/husband and I couldn’t be happier about it.

@bleusteel: aww thats cool. Darling Husband and I usually wash the cars together and we love projects. Its always nice working alongside your SO. It sounds like a fun weekend.
@Miss Mauverick: That sounds like alot of fun. Its not the big things, its the puttering around the house that is so wonderful and just being together.
Thanks ladies for sharing. I know it isnt a lot but sometimes I get down after coming to the boards because it seems like there is just a ton of sorrow on the boards.

@TexasSpringBride: I agree and I’ve been trying to weekly start some kind of positive or funny thread. They usually take awhile to take off, if they do at all, which speaks volumes.
My positive thing may seem silly, but I’ve been smiling about it all day: the plans for my wedding dress include mass amounts of rhinestones so they catch the sunlight at our beach wedding. When discussing it with my boyfriend yesterday, he said “can we ‘bling’ something I’m wearing that day to match you? I think that would be a funny touch.” His great sense of humor and willingness to do something ‘out there’ makes me thankful 🙂

@TexasSpringBride: I love this idea, but you should have titled the thread “happy weekend stories,” since the title itself is pretty unhappy right now.
I spent saturday at a friends wedding and it was just lovely. The future bride in me couldn’t help noticing the details (like their lovely centerpieces), but the best part was really just how happy the two of them were. You could just tell how excited they were to start their lives together and it absolutely warms my heart. All this time we spend on the details (which can be both fun and not-so-fun), I hope that is how people leave out wedding feeling!

Fiance and I are renting a place that requires that we maintain the lawn. For the first time in our lives we’re in charge of lawn mowing and weeding the flower beds. The past three Sunday afternoons have been spent banding together to tackle the jungle that popped up in a matter of weeks. It’s been a blast! We’ve spent time together without the internet or television, and we both feel a great sense of accomplishment. Who knew yardwork would make us both smile so much and bring us closer together?

Here’s my happy story from this weekend! (I thought it was silly to make an entire thread about this story so I’m glad I get to share it here!)
I’m a waiting bee, and my wonderful SO took me on a low key but much needed weekend vacation this weekend. He let it slip while on the trip that he already has the proposal planned, and it will be in the next 2-3 months! So excited!

My Fiance & I went to a small music show at a bar on Saturday night. One of the singer/ songwriters is our mutual friend. She invited Fiance up onstage and he sang me a song. It was unplanned and very sweet =)

It was my birthday this weekend and my mom & grandparents surprised me by coming to my college to visit! 🙂 It’s hundreds of miles, so it was very thoughtful of them! & everyone’s gifts were very thoughtful and personalized as well.
Also, I second changing the title of the post to “happy weekend stories” or something.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rosehill Community Center
Yay happy stories! Mine is about my parents. They came up to our house to look at some trees we can rent for the wedding, which was nice enough (about an hour drive). Then my mom wanted to talk about floral stuff, because I want nothing to do with it. She is 100% amazing, and super into it, and excited, which makes me SO happy. I also got to catch her up on all my craft projects and other wedding stuff. And then my dad and my Fiance worked on replacing our front door handle for HOURS, and got along wonderfully (I would have cried and/or yelled after about a half hour working with him!). And then to top it all off, they treated us to dinner. I’m so thankful my family is wonderful, and that my Fiance gets along and makes an effort to get along with them.

Thank you Bees for posting such positive stories.
@ivoryowl: Your probably right about the title but I had to get the little vent in there. I love coming to wedding bee but lately it seems all I see is sad stories, or vents and rants, ironic that I ranted as well to start this thread.
However it seems to me that the Wedding Bee would be more of a happy place and lately it hasnt been.
I just wanted to make it a happy place just for a thread.
It seems to me all the stories the bees have shared all had a common thread. They involved being together with their SO or family and there was a mutual goal and couples just working together.
Thats the thing that bonds us all, working with our respective partners or families and enjoying family time.
