So I Made a Mistake, Learned From it, and Got a Little Anxious...

Wednesday, May 28, 2014




The best mistake I ever made… was probably how I handled telling my parents about the engagement with John. Though I don't know how I could have handled it any better.  



From this mistake, I learned… it is better to get everything out in the open. Tell people how you feel. I also learned that you can't make everybody happy but you can make yourself happy and that's what you have to focus on.


When I’m anxious, I tell myself… I will make it through this perfectly fine. I'm not exactly sure what I tell myself, but that's what I try to think at least.



All I really want to do is… move down to Charleston with John and get married. I feel like I'm playing this waiting game for a very silly reason and really, I just want to be with him and be happy.



Linking up with Nicole and the gang for Finish This.

I just realized that I didn't really tell about the sadness that came along with my engagement. It's been over a year since it's happened and I suppose I can share it with all my readers now. So stay tuned in the next week for that update!

  2. I was going to ask you.... why the engagement was hard to tell your parents about...If my daughter can do it (twice now-- because both times she was prego).. anyone can do it ;-) Hope you link it up next week to your Finish This so I can remember to read your story.

  4. If/When you move to Charleston, can I come visit? I absolutely love that place and South Carolina is one of my favorite states. You're welcome to Texas to stay with me, I'll return the favor in room and board, front porch sittin', sweet tea drinkin', and unlimited Kamden cuddles. Do we have a deal?!?! :)

  5. The waiting game is so hard, but God's plan is a perfect one, and everything happens for a reason! I have to tell myself that constantly amidst the sea of unpredictability.

  6. I was a little anxious to tell my parents about my own engagement too, since I know they had some reservations, so I'm anxious to hear your story! Also, I can understand your pain with waiting...we were only engaged 2 months and it felt like the longest engagement ever lol

  11. I can totally relate to being nervous about telling your parents about your engagement. I was really nervous telling my Dad.. I knew my Mom would not have anything bad to say and would be happy for me, but my Dad.. he is a hard nut to crack, and I really never knew his opinion of my boyfriend. I guess his reservations were warranted though because we ended up getting married and now divorced.. But at the time, I had no idea. Also, stay strong girly, you can make it through this waiting game.. just know your man is waiting for you and once you are together it is going to be amazing! Xx
