Big weekend in HitchDiedLand! Collin’s birthday is tomorrow. We’re going to a wedding on Saturday. I’m leaving twelve hours after the wedding for a brief spot of fun with some friends in Florida. I’ll hopefully get home just in time to kiss Collin on our anniversary.
I’m extra excited about the wedding, because a) I love weddings and b) I’ll be meeting some of Collin’s good friends from college for the first time (including the groom). It’s silly, but I’m still nervous about making a good impression, even though his buddies are probably a touch too late to the game to comment on whether or not I’m a keeper.
Why haven’t these people met me yet? Well, it’s confession time: Monday is Collin and my SECOND anniversary. Yeah, that’s right, we decided to get married after just one little year of dating. I know what you’re thinking Isn’t that the sort of thing that only foolish celebrities do? Well, Us: we’re just like stars! I just hope we don’t have our marriage end the way celebrities’ marriages tend to. I mean, if Collin starts dating someone twenty years younger than him immediately after our ten-month marriage ends, that rebound chick will be in second grade. So we really need to depart from that model.
Someday I’ll write a more serious post about why we’re not waiting to get married, but today I have to find my camera battery charger and figure out what carry on bag I’m going to use and decide if I can really live with myself if I pack five dresses for a four-day trip.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
