Sarge and i were young and short-sighted, so we dropped about 5K at Tiffany's in Atlanta on our wedding rings while he was on leave. a part of me wishes i'd kept mine instead of selling it to go to KATG week. but, i'm sentimental.

WORD. Jewelry stores are a scam in general, usually 100% markup on everything in the store. I've heard it's as high as 300% for engagement rings.
Our budget is 3-4k to ensure everyone gets good food and great booze. We'll see if I hit it. We're not having a photographer or flowers or a bridal party so here's hoping.

Getting our dogs was, for me, like okay, we are a family now. I remember over a year after my bf moved in with me I went on his phone plan and he was like "omg, this is a big deal!" So, you know, different strokes.

Oh, and my sister married her bf of over ten years at city hall with only my mom as witness solely because they're trying to adopt and it'd be easier that way and my brother married his wife by calling her up during lunch, asking, going to city hall, having tacos, and then going back to their respective jobs. I'm the baby, the problem child with tattoos and odd hair and I'm going the most traditional out of all of us!

here in America, there are times we allow ourselves our own versions of impractical excess. we invented Treat Yo Self. respect our culture, Apia.

A what dress? 30 30 000?

Can we stop pretending these typos are because of some second language?

i think as a proper act of contrition for offending our way of life you should offer to eat six burgers stacked on top of a taco salad.

My dress, if i go with the original choice will be $89. if i go with this new one I found, will be $190. And im still gonna look hot as hell. Apia, no one needs a 3k dress. I don't begrudge anyone that (well okay maybe a little) but that's not me.
