I have a big secret. And I can't tell anyone. But I am going to tell GT, because I love you guys. And because you don't know me IRL (with few exceptions) so there will be no repercussions.
Also, since you guys were the first people I ranted to with all my OKC troubles, and then the first date with him...I feel like it's only right to tell you first.
MITSUBT AND I ARE GETTING MARRIED!
Like in a month. We'd been talking about eventually getting married, but hadn't officially bothered to "get engaged" yet. Well, I had the weirdest dream about us being married on Friday night, and we were talking about it Saturday morning....and just decided, fuck it. We are only in Hawaii for another 2 months-ish, and lord knows we won't be able to afford to come back here for a beach wedding while he's in law school. So we are going to elope, dammit.
We got a cheap ($600!) wedding package on Kauai, where we fell in love, booked our hotel (the same room we stayed in when we first started dating) and flights, ordered rings on Amazon (tungsten for him, moissanite for me), and I bought a $30 dress at a little boutique store. Just got confirmation on the wedding itself (beach permit!), so it's official now.
I am so deliriously happy. We are officially tying the knot on May 1st, 2014.
(and now I'm stressing because I don't know what I'm going to do re: taking his name, keeping mine, hyphenating, or (MitsuBT's suggestion) we both change our last names to Mylastnamehislastname)
(but it's good stress because I can't stop smiling)
(I had some wine tonight, so I'm extra giggly)
(I'll stop now. I love you, GT!)
