ring by spring? psh.

Sunday, June 13, 2010

so my friend Kaci, of The Fit Craving, posted about marriage and things this morning (well it was friday morning-- the day i originally wrote this, but i got a little busy and am just now posting!), and it really made a lot of sense. and i think the two of us are on exactly the same page about things. (Read her post HERE) i may watch a ton of bridezillas, say yes to the dress, and platinum weddings, but im still the independent, i dont need or want your help girl. and i know i have zero control over when and if i'll get married. (scary!)

and because we live in the south, and after graduation (baylor=ring by spring=STUPID) or until your 25, and no one's put a ring on it, your "damaged goods". um im not damaged, or am i dying any time soon. i have my whole life ahead of me and im really not too concerned with CL running off with some young tramp. and if he does.. i wont even have to worry, his mom will beat me to the beating!

aand because its wedding season, and i was just in a wedding, people are constantly asking when its our turn. our turn? yes, we have been dating for almost 2 years and have been living together for a year. our turn is when we are ready. ready financially at least. i know CL doesnt want to marry someone with a shopping habit like mine, being that i dont have a job. i know he doesn't have 10k for a ring, and combined i know neither one of us are prepared to pay for a wedding-- those things are EXPENSIVE. we love our life together right now, and even though i keep dropping hints, a 'big sparkly' isn't going to make me love him any more than i do.. cause eleventy-billion love units is a lot. trust me.

so don't mark your calendars any time soon. and you can still pester us about it, but we are getting better and better about avoiding answering!

happy weekending!!

  1. OMG, I feel you guys' pain! Try dating for 3 years and hearing that after the first year?! Now everywhere we go, "when are y'all getting engaged?" "When is he going to propose?" I have a usual answer, "ummmm maybe in a year." Mostly to get them off my back and change the subject. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to finally get engaged, but honestly, our finances suck and are in no shape for that! I am just glad there are other girls out there such as myself that WON'T be asking us that question! :o)
