December 2018 over-excited bride to be!!
After playing around with a bit of a rubbish planning thread I thought I would start again!
Hope you all enjoy reading this as much as I've enjoyed reading everyone else's.
A BIT ABOUT US
We met way back in 2002 at a charity night in his local village hall. I actually worked with his best mate and him and his girlfriend dragged me along.
It was fancy dress so I was attired most attractively in a naughty school girls outfit (quite appropriate really as I was only 17 at the time!) and he was dressed as one of the band members from Westlife in a red boiler suit!! Turns out him and his mates were performing Uptown Girl as part of the performance night. This is the two of the night we met - hideous picture really but it does make me laugh everytime I see it!!
So after a rather (very!) drunken evening we started going out, it didn't last very long though, only a few weeks as neither of us could drive at the time and we lived half an hour away from each other so was hard to get together. I was an awful immature 17 year old and actually dumped him via text message - I cringe when I think about that now!
About 3 months after we split up I passed my driving test and the night after I actually bumped into him at a local pub. We ended up having a cheeky snog and that was that!! He passed his test a few months later so we were able to start a proper relationship - my first and only!!
Roll on 5 years and we bought our first home together, a little one bedroom flat, and got a dog. Our first baby!!
At this point despite only being 23 I was full of the idea of marriage and for a while that was all I thought about! Unfortunately my other half didn't feel the same way and basically said he never wanted to get married so I had quite a few years of being jealous of all my friends getting married and just secretly hoping that one day it would happen to me!
OH and his two best mates even had a pact that they would only get married if the other two did so that they would never get married as none of them wanted to!
Cue me being rather hacked off that a few years later both of them were married & I wasn't even engaged!
As we can't seem to do things in the supposed correct order in 2012 I found out I was pregnant, took us both by surprise but was a happy surprise! So getting engaged really did fly to the back of my mind as I had way more important things to think of. Such as my baby girl born in October 2012. Our 'second' baby!!
Clearly this is a recent picture!! Not sure whether I should put pics on here or but thought I can always edit and remove!!
