When it comes to proposals I really feel like men draw the short stick. They've got weeks, months or even years to think about their proposal. To marinate on the details, consult family and friends... All while you're living your life blissfully unaware until it happens. When it does you're probably like most girls where you say, yay! ring! finally! And then in that same breath you start planning the wedding. Your poor guy had about 5 and a half seconds to shine, relish in the proposal, but your world around you is already trying to sweep you down the aisle.
I gave Mr. Goddard about 6 weeks, silently planning and plotting - trying to let him and this gorgeous ring shine. Being one of the last of my friends to get married I smugly thought to myself that I would do things differently. Yeah freaking right! I knew I didn't want a ceremony, why bother? I just wanted to throw a big, celebratory party. Who doesn't love a party?? We would do things differently.
In January we started to make our plans for my awesome party. We did a visit at my perfect venue, met with a fabulous photographer and perused Freeport's cake page obsessively. Every step of the way I could see the money that would be draining from our bank accounts by September. Money that could be going towards our dream of buying a home. I started to become uneasy because I wanted to throw that party, but I didn't want to cut corners and I really wanted us to buy a house. Then the night before we were to put a deposit down on our venue Mr. Goddard and I had a very frank discussion that for 2014 it would be either wedding OR house. Not both.
So last Friday, despite some obstacles we were married at the County Clerk's Office in front of our families. We celebrated on a smaller scale with a delicious, multiple-course lunch at the fanciest hotel in town. Now we're MARRIED and I couldn't be happier with our decision to start squirreling away that wedding money for a home! Plus, that gives me plenty of time to plan that housewarming party. ;)
Now the video above is suuuper long and I completely understand that wedding videos aren't always the most exciting. I made this for myself as a fun way to remember our day and to share with those who weren't there. Watch a little or watch it all!
For those of you with a short attention span I will just come right out and say it. In. A. Relationship.
For those of you looking for additional information the story is this… Thanks to the power invested in Facebook I now know that my flirty little crush is a skeez with something on the side. I’m not making any sense. Let me back up.
Back in November, Mailman was out for almost two weeks for a back injury. The day before Thanksgiving was his first day back. I was in such a lust bubble I decided, fuck it and requested someone on Facebook I thought was him. The reason I wasn’t sure was because this profile had EVERY privacy setting and the profile image was of the Rock. As in Dwayne Johnson. Not so sexy, I know, but I figured if the request went through and it wasn’t him I could just delete the weirdo.
Much to my surprise of Thanksgiving morning I received a notification that the request was accepted. I frantically started checking photos. This guy was almost nothing personal on his FB (shady right?) and it took some digging. Finally, I had success in mobile uploads - he has a freaking daughter!! I’m not anti-children by any means, but this girl had boobs! I’m guessing 13 or 14. Holy shit. And to make it better they were at the Kings vs. Lakers game. Something he had told me about, but no mention of any daughter…
It suddenly occurred to me who gives a shit about this… HELLO RELATIONSHIP STATUS. And that’s when I see [ ______ ] is in a relationship. Not even linked to another account for further snooping. Boo!
What makes it all worse is now he knows that I know and nothing has changed. We’ve never talked about our new internet friendship, he still hangs out to chat every day and he continues to flirt! He even gave me a birthday present! I mean it’s one thing to be a flirt and whoever he’s with probably wouldn’t be surprised by that behavior, but if my guy was giving some random a birthday present I’d be PISSED.
So that’s the scoop - love affair over. [Credits roll.]
Amongst everything else today I watched the season finale of 90210. For anyone, like me, who thought this show pretty much sucked… it’s dramatically improved. I am in love with Naomi and Liam’s dysfunctional relationship and her prom dress is gorgeous. The second half of the season was much better and some of you might want to give it another shot.
