I'm usually a Carrie...

Hey y'all, I hope you had a great weekend! Monday is in full force, and I am completely over this day! I had a pretty relaxing weekend; Friday night I spent some time with girlfriends, we went to dinner, then went home to watch Something Borrowed. Saturday Nate and I had a Sushi/Hibachi date, then watched a movie at home, then yesterday after church I just relaxed the whole day, caught on on DVR, and did a little online shopping. I love those days when I get to put on sweat pants, and not have to take them off until the next morning!!
 While I was catching up on my TV watching yesterday I watched an episode of Sex and the City, probably more popularly known as the one where Carrie got arrested for smokin' a dubie (sp?)! In this episode Charlotte had gotten engaged the night before, and the girls were out at a bar and bumped into another group of girls celebrating a Bachelorette party. Charlotte had finally met the love of her life, but since this would be her second wedding, she didn't feel like she could celebrate in a big way. It's rare that I connect to Charlotte on SATC, but this topic is one that I can definitely relate to! Granted, I'm not engaged; I know Nate and I will one day be married, and it kinda bums me out that I won't be able to celebrate in a normal way. I feel like the girl in Big Daddy, when Adam Sandler walks in the surprise party for his friend, and she tells him "We wasted the good surprise on you" feel like I "wasted my good wedding" the first time around. Don't get me wrong, in no way am I insinuating that I want to register, and have bridal showers, that's not it. Believe me, after the near 500 Thank You notes from the first time, if I didn't have to write another Thank You note for the rest of my life, it would be fine! But I want a wedding, and I want bridesmaids, and to wear a dress and feel beautiful. I want to share the day with our family and friends, and not feel like I have to have a small  ceremony with family only, if even having one at all. Nate and I have discussed options for when we do decide to get married, but we differ on what it should be like...I love the idea of getting married on the balcony of his parents lake house, and inviting family, and close friends...which would be somewhere around 50+ people, and he would rather just invite our parents. I know when it comes down to it, either way he would do what I wanted to do...but I don't know what to do...Again...obviously I have plenty of time to worry myself with this, as if I don't have a millions other things going on right now. But after seeing that on SATC, and feeling the same exact way Charlotte did, I just needed to vent a little! So, if you were in my boat, what would you do? Charlotte ended up having a wedding, and everything that could go wrong, did. Carrie joked with her saying "the worse the wedding, the better the marriage..."....I just want happily ever after with my love...even if that means we get have to get married in the hallway of a courthouse...

 I hope you all have a great Monday, thanks for hearing me out on this! I can't wait to hear your opinions!

First of all... this go around, you have better friends (just saying) we arent letting you get away without showers, parties, and bridesmaids! I will help you write thank you cards. Second of all... your friends at least I know two of them that better be invited to this shindig... The diff is, this one is real... you just had a practice run ;)

As a person who has now been marred 2 times and had a actual full on wedding both times I say do what makes you happy. Both time I have been married I personally did not want the full shinding but my ex and my hubby now both wanted it. I can honestly say although it was fun it was not what I wanted. Stay true to yourself and your wants and desires.
