I’m engaged, now what??

I’m engaged… Now what? Other then being overly excited I have no idea. I mean literally no idea. I know I have to pick the date and everything falls into place from there right? But I’m not even sure I want a wedding. Is that weird?

For a long time now (years) I have been saying that I have no real desire to have a wedding. My fiancΓ© and I have been together for sometime now and we have two kids so it feels kind of funny to make a big fuss about a wedding.

Growing up, I also never really had any sort of “dream wedding” vision in my head.

My 7 year old has her own plans for mom and dad though. She’s already claimed her flower girl spot and made it very clear that she needs a wedding. When did 7 years old get so demanding? Lol. She’s just so excited!

But I have to tell you guys something. I suffer from FOMO. Thats ‘fear of missing out for you guys who don’t know. And now that I am engaged, I have a fear of missing out on a wedding.  The whole concept of it is seems fun and exciting. I am just enjoying this phase of life. I love the feeling of this experience. So, I think i’ve got to take a good look at having a wedding.

Two things I do know…
1. If I have a wedding succulents must make an appearance. (I know, I totally have my priorities in order).
2. There’s a lot of pressure to have answers, dates, decisions… Between the family asking and my 7 year old drill sergeant. I’m considering a PSA stating that I am currently unsure of any details. You will be updated as soon as I can get my head out of the engagement clouds. And then I’ll want to talk to you until I’m blue in the face lol.

Oh and a shout out to the few besties I have been talking to about all the details and decisions. Thanks for putting up with me being all over the place. You girls are the best!

I’ve got some thinking to do…Here’s to making some decisions! Haha.

Ps. Sorry for not sharing any details on the actual engagement sorry. A girl has got to keep some things close to her heart and private. But just know that he included my family and our daughter and I was extremely surprised. It took me a good 5 minutes to say yes because I was in shock. Poor guy had to ask me, “So is that a yes.” Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!

Here’s one blurry still from the proposal … Swoon!Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 7.53.37 AM

    It was the best day ever to be a part of!! I am so happy for both of you and proud…..
    Advise, thoughts or wisdom from someone older make your life about the marriage not the wedding. Weddings are only one day, Marriages are a lifetime. What ever the two of you decide the family supports you.
