So far it's not as bad as people have told me it'd be. I mean sure I cried within the first couple months of being engaged (once publicly), lol, but I don't feel particularly stressed now. Perhaps, it's because I've just ordered my dress. =D. It's amazing how good/scary that purchase felt. haha. Like holy CRAP can I spend this much money on a dress. Turns out I can.
Clarification: that crying bit within the first couple months was because my family was being a prick. lol. I made the mistake of letting my grandparents look at the guest list when they asked and they threatened not to come because I didn't want to invite my aunt--estranged aunt who I didn't even know had 3 kids and who used my mom for her money. Anyway, it was a mess and I ended up agreeing to invite her, but after that I told everyone if they're going to threaten me with not coming to my wedding they better make good on it cause next time I'm taking them up on their offer to make space for more people who actually want to come. Yeah. lol. Good times.
#13. So Hercules (and a bunch of other great disney movies) was playing on TV this past weekend. So here's one of my favorite Hercules quotes. I surprised myself that I didn't pick a funny one. heh. I picked one that just makes me go "aaaaaaaaaaaaaw...*slow corny clap/knowing nod of the head*." Perhaps I'm just an emotional sap these days, but it just gave me a goofy smile. lol. I mean come on. Hercules tries so hard to rejoin his father and he falls in love along the way. Then when he's just acting out of love instead of his desire to become a god....BAM. Right in the heart.
Zeus: Fine work, my boy! You've done it! You're a true hero
Hera: You were willing to give your life to rescue this young woman
Zeus: For a true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.
I'm engaged, I'm planning a super nerdy wedding, I've done no real work at work for the past couple weeks because I've been looking at wedding stuff all day at work, and I've been dragging my feet with regards to watching the end of Merlin. lol. Don't make me do it...I don't want it to eeeeeend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#12 I watched Ever After during the weekend.....cause I was in the mood for a fluffy romance movie. One of my favorite quotes from this film is when Henry and his father, the King, are arguing because Henry doesn't want to get married:
King Francis: You are the Crown Prince of France! Henry: And it is my life. Queen Marie: Francis, sit down before you have a stroke. Really. the two of you. [to Henry] Queen Marie: Sweetheart... you were born to privilege and with that comes specific obligations. Henry: Forgive me, Mother, but marriage to a complete stranger never made anyone in this room very happy (awwww snap! um...awkward) King Francis: You will marry Gabriella by the next full moon or I will strike at you in any way I can. Henry: What's it to be, father, hot oil or the rack? King Francis: I will simply deny you the crown and... live forever. (hahahaha...=D) Henry: Good. Agreed. I don't want it.
