So I thought I’d share this to give you all a few giggles!! I’m been very good with the waiting lately but from time to time I like to indulge in some online fantasy planning! Last week my mom asked me where we’d get married and I was explaining i’d like something small, I was showing her a venue online when the online chat Popped up and asked me would I like to arrange a meeting with their wedding consultant I declined but asked for a brochure to be posted to me! Ahhhh It was an instant reaction!! Anyway it arrived I gave it a quick once over and decided we would never afford it anyway!! To get rid if the evidence I put it in our unlit stove and threw a match in. fast. Forward to today and I my SO appears into the bedroom to ask what I’ve been burning in the stove, I was like in just some letters with my name on it I didn’t want to put in the recycling. He was like oh right and what was that brochure for?! I was like oh just a catalogue. He was like its a wedding brochure you didn’t destroy all the evidence. All I could do was laugh and hide my head under a pillow then I blamed my mom and said she had given it to me ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lesson learned!

@Bettyboo1982: haha! BUSTED!!
Does your SO know that you do some fantasy planning for ya’ll wedding? My SO knows I have some inspiration boards and we’ve talked about it (very briefly…), but I don’t think he would be too alarmed
Maybe this will help speed up your proposal!!

Ha ha, oops! I signed up for some contests (haven’t won anything yet) and now my boyfriend gets random wedding catalogues at his apartment, which is especially odd considering we live in different states. He’ll call me up when he gets them and asks me if I want them. It was somewhat awkward at first, but he’s used to it now!

@Sporty-Bee: Haha, I was just thinking the same thing! I can just see Bridget Jones like cramming a catalogue into the stove and then her fingers being all ash-covered, lol.

Hahah ooooh my dear, how I’ve had so many of these moments.
I got a bridesmaids dress magazine in the mail the other day. I covered by saying “They send those to anyone my age and hope we’re engaged…guess I’ll toss it since I have a few years to wait…*BIG SIGH*….”
He usually takes it pretty well. As long as I’m not asking for his opinion before he proposes, he doesn’t mind. I explained it by telling him “Its like fantasy football. If I WERE to have a team, this is what it would be…and what colors they would wear..and where they would play…and what music they’d enter to. Its basically the same thing…”

he brought it up again at dinner last night I was cold and tired and was giving out for our food to hurry up cos I wanted to go home and chill. he was like ” looking up more wedding venues tonight are you?” I was like eh no that was just a joke from my mom i told you!! he was like “i know you are looking up stuff cos you always delete the browser history on the ipad” ahhhhhhhhhh so he knows i fantasy plan!!
my response back was ” look its a hobby all girls in my situation would do the same! and if i hadn’t been waiting for the last year i wouldn’t be looking up this stuff”
but yup I am so busted!! i thought I was a good sneak! obviously not!! ha ha it was funny though watching him lift the half burnt brochure out of the stove he was like ” so who are you marrying in this place anyway?!” laughing his head off at my embarassment!!

it really was like that it was a really thick brochure and wouldn’t burn quickly with just the match so i was trying to stick bits of coal in between the pages and get them lit ha ha ha! what waiting can do to a girl!!

Hahahaha! That’s too funny! I secretly have little things around that I should throw away but some things I do secretly want him to find….my SO found a catalog from JB Star in our magazine bin all the way towards the back….he was like is this yours? I just shrugged and said “Yea I guess so….”

I can’t believe he busted your browser! Hahaha. I get busted for my browser history because I forget to delete it (really embarrassing when he is looking up “waterparks” to take our kids to and 15 versions of “why won’t my boyfriend propose” drop down the second he types in the W.). Your boyfriend is slick for guessing why yours was clean. Mine wouldn’t notice. I think I’d have told your boyfriend “didn’t want to hurt your feelings when I was checking out Match.com”. Hehe!
Oh and this weekend after getting a “leave me alone for three months about engagement” lecture, I threw away a ring catalogue I’d picked up from a jeweler. The next day I noticed him go over to the trash can and throw away a bottle of wine. I don’t know if he saw it or not but I dumped spaghetti sauce all over it immediately.
