- Wedding: September 2014 - Manhattan Church Rec Center
I have a lot of stuff going on for the month of August and it is starting to get to me. I know I can vent on the Bee.
So I am in the End of the Year club because, presumably, that is when the SO will have the money. I am ok with that. I am kind of hoping for a New Years proposal. I just have to get over this summer hump.
Our friends are getting married to each other (which is super sweet and I couldn’t be happier for them), and it is wonderful. But it is kicking our wallets in the ass!
The Bachelor / Bachelorette parties are next weekend. This may suck more for my SO then for me as us girls have an open bar for an hour and then I can go home if I need to. But guys…you know they need strippers and booze and stuff. My SO is worried for his wallet.
The following weekend is the wedding. The couple has been wonderful enough to ask me to recite a poem at the wedding, which I am honored to do. I love them as a couple and am as happy as heck they are getting hitched. I am worried about he bouquet toss or “When is it your turn” comments, but I am trying not to think about it. I caught the bouquet at my BFF’s wedding out of state w/o my Boyfriend or Best Friend there and one of our other friends (not at the wedding) has gotten married since then, so I am kind of dejected. But with my Boyfriend or Best Friend there at the wedding, who knows. If he decides to do the garter toss I will go for the flowers.
The day after the wedding is my birthday (my 26th birthday, which I am not that enthused about). Again, this is going to be celebrated at the after-party to the wedding because the best man and I share a birthday so we are planning to party INTO our birthdays. Then sleep half the day and I get to go perform with my friends on my birthday then go to my parent’s house for a nice dinner. It won’t be bad at all.
A week after my birthday is our 5 year anniversary. Now, I KNOW that he is not proposing on our big day. I know this because he told me he will have the money to get the ring around September He is busting his butt to get his bonuses and maybe a raise at the end of the year. So, for our anniversary we are just planning on having a romantic picnic in Central Park. I am actually really excited about this. I love him and this is going to be a great day if the weather holds out.
Maybe it is just PMS making me a bit nuttzo but I am just going to have to grit my teeth and get through the next month and ride the wave until the end of the year. It’s that all of these events come one right after the other and today my SO and I agreed to skip anniversary gifts for the sake of our wallets. He was going to get me a beautiful acoustic guitar but that’s, like $300! Why doesn’t he just put that towards a ring? I think he got the hint when I told him “I don’t care about THINGS. I don’t want things” (in my head that sentence ends with: I want your ring!). I think he got my point. We will talk more about it when we get home.
Any kind words would be appreciated.
