I’m not great at keeping secrets, at least not exciting ones, so I’m impressed with myself for keeping my mouth shut for two weeks… but I’m about ready to burst if I don’t share the good news with you all.
Remember my post Obstacles on the Way to the Altar? Well there are still a fair share of obstacles, but we are getting one step closer… P and I finally set a wedding date, or should I say, dates!
The plan is to get married the weekend of July 9-10, 2011. Currently we have July 10th scheduled and a place booked for our American wedding (or as our South Asian friends refer to it, “white wedding”), and the next piece I will have to work on is the July 9th Nepali wedding at a nearby Hindu temple (probably the same place P had his Bratabandha–it has a Nepali priest, and it is more “toned down” than some of the other temples around, so perhaps it will be a bit less shocking for my more conservative relatives).
Hurray! I feel like a huge frustration has been lifted off my shoulders! Now I can start making an action plan, instead of grumbling at the lack of progress. It is so nice to be one step closer to “Gori Wife” rather than stuck in “Gori Significant Other” land.
I promise you that this won’t turn into a wedding blog, but please forgive me if I sprinkle in a few wedding prep/ideas/family argument posts between now and then…
