On my Valentine's poll 21 out of 38 votes went for dinner reservations. Since you know I love to eat out you know my vote.
'Card' got 8, 'flowers' 7, and 'candy' 2. Now that surprised me. I thought flowers would get more votes. Of course flowers fade and die, and cards last forever... and candy goes straight to the hips.
On the poll before that more people liked the wedding ceremony than the reception, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I voted for the rehearsal dinner - then changed my vote to the reception. That's when it's all over and everyone can relax. I was, frankly, surprised that the ceremony won.... but then, that IS the main part of the wedding.
Well, as with any obsession, these polls are getting out of control. Nah. Just kidding. I like them. And think it's okay to like them... and do them. (Another random one is up.)
On a kind of different note, I'm thinking that you might think (from my yesterday's post) that my marriage is out-of-this-world wonderful. While it is, there are days and moments and seconds where we each roll our eyes and wonder what-on-earth the other one is thinking.
And there are days where routine just seems so routine. But that’s the way life is. And I’m just glad my routine is with Sam.
So here's my assignment for you (if you don't mind).
Please answer the following question.....
What marriage advice would you give an engaged couple? (like our nephew John, and his fiancee, Katie)
You can leave a comment on the blog - or a comment on facebook - and I’ll compile them and post them soon, okay?
Oh, and keep them short, please.
And you can write more than one. Oh yes.
And you don’t have to be married to give advice.
Really, I hope you leave something -- and it can be anonymous.
In case you need help, here’s an example: Don’t roll your eyes in public when your spouse says or does anything.
I would so appreciate your doing my assignment. THANKS!!!
