It's not quite a bucket list

Well okay then!! I'll just scoot aside 2 rats, 4 guinea pigs, 3 rabbits, 6 cats (are we really up to 6??), and 2 dogs... Plenty of free space here for a new puppy, especially a pretty teensy girl.

We like it really strong and sweet up here, are you willing to put your ice tea where your mouth is?

This year I really really want a new job that feel like I'm actualloving forward in my life.

I'd love to travel to Mexico, but we're off to Amsterdam in March which is a but closer to home.

I'd also like the money to get engaged as my boyfriend and I celebrate 6 years together this year and the only thing holding us back is being unable to afford a wedding, but that's one for another day!

I love Georgia ice tea then!! My husband thinks I'm nuts for double tea bags, but his tea has no flavor, it's just brown water.


And Emsie-jc, can I suggest elopement, weddings, which last for a day, are nice but marriages are way better.
Gotta love 'em.

Re. weddings - Justin and I were together 7 years before we got engaged, and 9 years by the time we got married this summer. We had a very inexpensive wedding - it can be done Smile

Weddings are very nice, but they do not have to be big and elaborate and expensive. Remember it is about the two of you and your feeli he for each other. It can be hard to put your foot down when your are told who you have to invite. The fact is you don have to invite anyone. It can be as small and intimate as you want or can afford. One of the nicest weddings I have ever attended was outside, the meal was a light buffet supper, and there were 50 people including the bride and groom. It was so personal the bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was lovely.

Got married this past year. My husband and I got married and it didn't cost loads. It was a community effort. My mom made my dress, and it was perfect. The bridesmaids coordinated together and bought dresses which they liked in blue which is the only guideline I gave them. We got married at the church I attend on a regular basis, and the women of the church kindly agreed to make food for the reception. The cake was made by my husband's godmother, and the band for the ceilidh were come close friends. The whole thing was not expensive and everyone had a wonderful time. Loads of people said it was the best wedding they'd been to, because it was so relaxed. So it can definitely be done!!!

My wish is to travel a bit. Maybe go to Greece. Smile Barring that, we are already planning to get another puppy in just under a year.

Those all sound like wonderful wedding ideas. Now I have to subtly talk to my boyfriend about it. He has said numerous times that we'll marry when we can afford it (I'd love a small wedding by the way) but I am waiting for him to ask. I don't want to push him at all.

My mum set aside some money for a wedding pretty much when I was born, but my boyfriend doesn't want her to interfere, so we have to find a happy medium.

LOL!

You should tell your boyfriend to come back from whatever planet he's on... I'd bet my salary that your mom will be very involved. In fact, he should be thankful... unless he wants to do it all himself (spoiler alert: most men don't).

I don't know what we would have done if our mothers hadn't helped us with our wedding.

Psylocide speaks the truth; mothers will be involved no matter what. We had a real headache trying to keep our guest list small, but my parents ended up putting the pressure on and forced us to basically invite all of my extended family...luckily most of them didn't fancy the journey from Scotland so it worked out ok. But yeah, it will be easier on everyone involved if you accept this lesson early on - it is inevitable. Smile
