I'm actually quite surprised the day has finally arrived. Nichole's boyfriend has always had commitment issues.....pretty big ones.......so I've been sort of waiting for the "bomb" to drop. You know, something that calls off the wedding. But no drama ect that I am aware of. Nichole seems blissfully happy. These two kids have been through so much together over the past 6-7 yrs. The relationship has not been the healthiest for most of that time. And honestly, I never truly expected boyfriend to marry her, whether his feelings for her were genuine or not. More than a little disappointed that boyfriend managed to finally talk her into a courthouse wedding. I know she never wanted big and fancy......but I also know she didn't want to do the courthouse either. Very disappointed she won't be wearing the dress I saved all these years. But that is MY issue, not theirs. I don't see the big ta do wedding happening at a later date. boyfriend's argument then will be why waste the money when we're already married.......So....may think about freecycling the dress in the near future. No sense in continuing to store it when no one will wear it. I might get surprised and the bigger nicer wedding will happen.......but I seriously doubt it. Again, MY issue. If Nichole is fine with the courthouse......I'll smile and be happy for her and svck it up and get over it. Life doesn't always play out how we dream it will. Seems a tad surreal that my baby girl and youngest child is getting married today. OMG where did the time go? How did the years pass so d*mn fast? Makes me feel a tad old. lol I'm hoping all goes well today. husband and I are leaving early to drive up there just in case we get behind slow people, which seems to be our luck. boyfriend's parents are also attending. Had a heck of a time finding something I could wear that was also appropriate. I'm retaining water horribly this week.......have very limited wardrobe that fits me in this state. Going to give them a gift card as I have no clue what to get a couple who has already been living together for quite some time. The sun is peeking in and out of the clouds.........maybe it will be a pretty day for them.
