I blame orange juice. Or lack of sleep. Or both. And I'm really, REALLY happy with the fact that it looks like we can actually have a wedding of a sort, not just a trip to the courthouse.
I finally got FI to sit down and TALK with me about wedding stuff. I wasn't willing to settle for a courthouse elopement after all the effort I've put into planning just because he wants to be married before the baby gets here, and he wasn't willing to shell out a lot of money on a huge party just because I want something that looks sorta like a real wedding. So we talked it out and we both agreed that an inexpensive DIY-style wedding in our backyard for fewer than 60 people sometime before April is doable. I have succesfully managed to cut our budget down to under $1500. Ebay, Craigslist, Freecycle, and Overstock.com are my best friends right now.
