So get this: My boyfriend and I have two weddings to attend within one week, both which we have to travel for. He is a groomsman in one, and I am a bridesmaid in the other. Our mothers will both be around for each trip so I anticipate a solid week of being asked ‘when we’ll be getting married and having children’. This is sort of our first time as a couple being involved in a round of weddings, and so far all we’ve learned is that it’s a whole lot of trouble and money being spent just for one day. And it’s not just the couple getting married that spend the money – everyone around them has to; gifts, finding something to wear, travel costs, taking time off from work – I’m all for a good party, but this is too much! Everyone has to sacrifice their routines and lives for the sake of someone else’s love? I mean, love is great and all, but sheesh! I wouldn’t expect everyone to do that for me. I don’t want them to. Do I have to have the little girl inside me that dreams of the big, fancy, frilly wedding? NO! NO I say – I think I’d rather elope…

If you ever wonder where I come up with stories, it’s easy – our lives are just that crazy! 😛

P.S. If either of our mothers end up reading this someday, well, you gals are the best – love ya! 😉
