Another one bites the dust...

Well she will on the 29th of March.

My mates are all getting engaged and married, which I suppose is a natural sequence of events.

Anyhoo, I cannot believe we're at that age. On the flipside, that age lies in a bit of a grey area, doesn't it? It's not like you have to be married really young anymore and it's totally acceptable to only think about getting married in you late 20's early 30's.

Well, my mates seem to think mid twenties are a trend. A trend that's winning.

Excuse me...but I feel like it was last week when we were all asking each other what we'll be studying at university.

Society is also a little screwy. I've been with my amazing man aka The One for about 4 and a bit years. All of a sudden, WHOOSH: "When are you getting married?" from everyone. Even people I meet for the first time, who find out I'm attached ask: "Oooh, so when are you getting engaged?"

Funny though, a mate of mine who just recently got married and is still settling into marriage, is being bombarded now with: "So when are you going to have little sprogs?"

Good grief.

I still feel young. No really. Young as in, marriage is for grown ups. Debt is for grown ups. Credit cards are for grown ups. Speeding fines, thinking whats for dinner, getting excited about the fact that there's a sale on Skip Washing Powder and StaSoft for grown ups.

Now, little blondie here is going to confuse the shit out of you and contradict EVERYTHING.

I would cry hundreds of happy crocodile tears if the man proposed. It's something I secretly hope he'll do this year. And no. I'm not wanting to feel as if I'm a part of the "friends trend" either.

The upside to mates getting married is I get to be bridesmaid. Luckily I have lovely friends who don't want us to look like orange and purple polka dotted blobs...with a giant bow on the back.

Exciting stuff.

Wedding Fever is gonna be the new black in 2008, i can just feel it! 2007 saw a few casualties make it up the aisle, but 2008 is going to be an out and out massacre!

I am ready for it, bubbly in one hand and well wishing in the other. Just don't ask me when mine is, arggh!

I was bridesmaid for both my best friends weddings. I had to wear bows.


If I get married, I'm making them wear lace!

Oh dear...didn't think of it like that! You're probably right Vimbai!

Uh-oh...well as long as the champagne keeps flowing I'm happy!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

I love weddings too Nats, but now all my mates are gonna have husbands and it's weird! LOL ;-)

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Oh dear expensive mistakes and cheap thrills...I can just imagine what "abuse" you get! Shame!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Agreed Sheena! Bitches! Why oh why are bows allowed? They went out with teased perms and leg warmers!
