I don't have a choice, but I still choose you.  
First off, I have to congratulate my college roommate, Laura, and my after-college roommate, Ryan on their recent engagement! Ryan proposed last night, and I couldn't be happier for the two of them! I remember when Laura used to talk to me about how she had a crush on Ryan and when they first started dating. Laura was one of my closest friends in college, and that's why she is now in my bridal party. I am so excited she has found herself a great guy who is also a good friend of mine as well. So yay for them!

Last night, I went to the Mandarin with some people from work to celebrate those of us who got promoted in the Private Clients Group. It was my first time being there, but it was pretty good. We each picked one meal and then passed around the plates so we all could have some. I really appreciate those who went and celebrated with us. It was a lot of fun and we had a lot of great laughs.

After dinner, I went to my sister's apartment because we were going to see Magic Mike. Since the last time I was there, they have rearranged the furniture and have done some decorating. I really like what they have done with it. It felt so much bigger than before and felt very warm and homely. We then went for a walk and I showed her and Dave my new car. Then Denise and I went over to the movie theater where we just sat and talked for an hour before the movie started. It was awesome to talk to her. Growing up, we really wouldn't talk to each other about what was going on in our lives or the things we had experienced. Now, I feel like I can talk to her about anything. I really am glad that we have gotten to be closer than we ever have. Then we went into the movie. Anytime there was a strip scene on, the girls in front of us would basically get all hot and start screaming. I went into this movie with very low expectations. I couldn't imagine a movie about male strippers would be that good. I just went for the same reason every girl went. However, this movie was even worse than I expected. They should've just stuck to an entire movie of male stripping instead of trying to add in a horrible plot with absolutely no depth. My sister and I just spent most of the movie laughing at how pathetic the whole thing was.

I'm pretty upset that the weather this weekend is supposed to be sucky. It completely blew our plans to go camping at Old Orchard Beach, which I was really looking forward to. I never really get to do things like this often, and the one time the plans work out, the weather doesn't. Thank God I have next week to look forward to.

I realize how much I try to avoid thinking about or doing anything for the wedding, which I guess isn't too dangerous yet because the wedding is still over a year away. It's not because I'm not wanting or ready to get married; I just cannot begin to wrap my mind around the fact that we will be spending thousands and thousands of dollars for 6 hours. I sit here and think about how I just want to cut everything out and have the cheapest wedding possible, but then I think about how I just want the most magical and memorable experience since it is one of the biggest moments in my life, when I marry my best friend and soulmate. So at this point, it's all figuring out what we don't need, what we can do ourselves in order to cut costs, and what we absolutely want/need in order to make our day special and unique to us. Either way, it's still going to be ridiculously expensive. One of these days, I'm actually going to have to face my fears and actually get more into the wedding planning.

Well, it's getting late. Time for bed.

God Bless,
LMD
