My weekend consisted of LOTS of football watching and switching between laying in bed, laying on the couch and laying in the massage chair. I also ate a lot and slept a lot. Yesterday morning I got up and made a kick ass ham and cheese quiche followed up with strawberry/banana smoothies using the new smoothie maker my mom bought us and then I made some equally kick ass baked ziti for dinner. Not sure why, but I was feeling all domestic yesterday, despite my foul mood and overwhelming feeling of laziness.
Why was I in a bad mood? Well I almost had a mental breakdown on Saturday while trying to figure out possible honeymoon plans with K, my mom and older brother. First we took K out to lunch for an early birthday celebration where I stuffed my face with BBQ. Then we came home and went through my mom's timeshare information to try to figure out where we could go for the honeymoon. Using her timeshare would save us money on the lodging price though we would still have to pay for our plane tickets and of course food/drinks or the all-inclusive fee if given the option.
The sales lady gave us two options both in the Dominican Republic and expected us to decide within about 30 seconds where we wanted to go, now mind you we would still have to shell out at least $1-2K of our own money so needless to say this wasn't a decision that could be made right away. My mom is pushing us to make a decision, my brother keeps shouting out "Go to Tahiti", "What about Greece?", "You should go to the French Riviera" and Kristian and I stared at each other bewildered. Finally we both said that we couldn't make a decision right then and we needed to do some research.
Frankly the issue is if we can even afford a honeymoon at all. We are paying for the wedding ourselves and the idea of shelling out another couple thousand dollars for a honeymoon quite honestly makes me want to have a panic attack. I would love nothing more than to fly off to some tropical paradise for a week after the wedding but I don't think it's financially possible at the moment. We just can't commit to anything right now and with all the stress of trying to plan and pay for the wedding I personally can't handle dealing with the honeymoon.
So I told Kristian and my brother that it's in their hands. My brother actually enjoys planning trips and Kristian knows what kind of budget we are dealing with so if the two of them can find something affordable then great but I don't want to be a part of the planning process. I just don't have it in me. I'm overwhelmed at the moment and this process just isn't fun at the moment. To be honest if we have to wait a year and take our honeymoon later on I'm fine with that. I would also be happy locking ourselves in the condo for a week and just hanging out with the cats. That idea actually sounds heavenly right about now.
