- Wedding: November 2015
I’m feeling pretty calm at the moment and have been keeping busy with lots of fun stuff and good self-care, but there are a few milestones coming up in the next 2 weeks:
-This coming Friday is my birthday, and I’m looking forward to an AMAZING weekend birthday trip, thanks to Boyfriend or Best Friend for planning it. We’re going to Vegas and he got me Lady Gaga tickets! Woo-hoo! My outfit is going to be amazing, I’m almost finished.
-The 1 year anniversary of our first date is the following week after we get back. He’s made restaurant reservations and asked if I wanted to keep it a surprise, I said “yes”! Yesterday I went thrift-store shopping and found a stunning dress for only $9. It makes me feel like 1 million $! Needed a small alteration which I completed last night. I’m also all caught up with making my anniversary present for him. So feeling very good and non-stressed.
-The next weekend I’m taking HIM on a surprise trip. I planned something lovely since I’m finally starting to make a bit more $ and the Boyfriend or Best Friend has taken me on so many nice trips this year. He has no idea where we’re going! we’re both taking Monday off so we have a 3 day weekend.
Whew! I’m in good spirits *right now*, you Bees know how quickly that can change though. I’m not expecting a proposal at all right now, in fact it would pretty much blow me away if he did it. I’m 99% sure he hasn’t talked to my dad, etc. Also he’s been on vacation with his brother and they’re mountain climbing so it’s not like he’s had time to shop for a ring.
This is a bit early for his “timeframe window” for figuring out what he wants to do about moving our relationship forward. He said 2-4 months and that was about a month ago, I believe.
So I’m on full “expectation management” mode and not getting my hopes up at all. OK I’ll admit maybe I am a little bit, for our anniversary thing.
I am ready for a great 2 weeks, focusing on enjoying myself, being with the people I love, beautiful dresses, sunshine, pool, massages, nice dinners, celebrating my life and relationship, and giving my sweetie presents that I’ve been wanting to give/planning for awhile.
I just hope I can keep my sh*t together….
