The Next Step

10 Jan

I know the ring is not coming for a while… weeks, maybe months.

What’s a girl to do in the interim? If I were any normal girl, I’d probably relax, basking in the thought that someone loves me enough to put a ring on my finger and ask me to be his wife.

But me, what do I do? Create spreadsheets — dozens of them. With information on florists and dresses, caterers, reception halls, photographers and linen-rentals.

Then, I research and tick them off the list. Its pretty refreshing to have a list of 40 potential reception sites whittled down to 4. But… I can’t rightfully start calling places, I mean, he is not my *fiance* yet — and to call him my *boyfriend* would be like dragging nails against a chalkboard.

You can be assured I will assess these and more (and share them with you) in the coming months.

So, I create lists, and I research, like any good trendy-yet-nerdy girl would do.

    This is a great question!!! I would love for you to post it on my blog askgirl! I think you should try to focus on YOU and YOUR life. Spend more time with your friends and family and focus on work. Maybe you should plan a different sort of party since you are so antsy to plan a wedding, maybe for your best friends/mother’s next birthday. You seem to have the whole wedding planning thing down, maybe you should even consider a career in planning weddings!?!!?
