Count down: 3 months; 1 week.

A lot has happened since I blogged last. The fiancé has resumed at his new place of work and it has been weird not seeing him at his seat. But I still see him almost every mornings anyways.

Before we started counseling, I thought it would be all about “don’t have sex before marriage”, “be submissive”. “be loving” etc. Thankfully and surprisingly, it has been so deep, practical and useful. We have talked about having a healthy self-image and how a poor self-image affects marriage. We’v talked about stuff that can lead to conflict in marriage and how to handle them. Last week we started our classes on communication, ironically we had a big fight the Friday before and after the class we could see how communication would have helped avoid it. It is really going on well.

The weight loss is also going very well, it has been 12 weeks of going to the gym at least 4 times a week (most times 5 days) and it is paying off big time. When I get my dress (which should get to the store in the US on the 15th of next month yay!). I shall be ready.

My dad is one of a kind (I swear). Have you heard of anybody who’s two parents live in Lagos, travel to the village for introduction so that the kinsmen can be part of it. I said introduction o! not traditional wedding. the man exasperate me. But mumc keeps reminding me that I’m his only daughter so I should indulge him. It would be easier if he was more reasonable but then it is daddy, no surprises. Anyways we have to go to the village in about two weeks

I went for my wedding makeup trial (thank God I did). Cuz I got constructive feedback from a couple of friends and now we know just what work.

I’m sorting out my bridesmaids this week and also placing order for asoebi this weekend. We’v ordered our wedding invitations from the States.

After which I would have music band, MC, wedding bands, clothes& shoes& accessories for bride and groom (traditional wedding), wedding programme outstanding. The fiancé has not ordered or even decided where to order his tuxedo from or what to do about his grooms men. O well, that is not on my workplan so…

Its 3 months, one week to go.

Congratulations!

You are your dad's only daughter and so u have to oblige him. My dad loves doing things big too though he is late now, i think some dads are like that and your dad falls into that category. Just enjoy the whole efizzi, the koko is that you are getting married to the man of your dreams any which way.

Cheers!

I think the change of office space would show u a few things in the weeks to come... pay maximum attention, u'll find a deeper connection from having to relay news from seperate offices to each other.

Okeoghene said...

I agree with PET projects and it is very good that you are getting something out of the marriage class. I wish you the very best as you count down to your D-day.

dosh said...

I'm so happy for you and i've heard alot of good things about marriage counselling so it's one of the many things i'm gonna be looking forward to when the time is right. I pray everything works out good for you

wow.......sounds like so much hardwork.

May God give you all the strength you need to pull through.

Your dad sounds like mine......however there were some things i refused to give into.

AWWWWWWW! *Beautiful Sigh*

Myne Whitman said...

You seem all on top of things. Wishing you guys the best. I'm glad you got a good place for the counselling. Conscious practice of what you learn is important too.

SHE said...

Sounds like loads and loads of stuff to do. Pheew!

All the best!

Afronuts said...

aaww...Another couple plans ahead for the aisle. You guys are definitely taking the right step to ensure a good marriage. Its true that lack of communication is responsible for most marriage breakdowns.

And don't mind Parents...they have their excesses but soon you'll be under your hubby's roof and out of their hold. Let them bask in the euphoria while it lasts.

The best time of the whole thing is when the wedding is over and anxiety dies down.

Wish you the best!

Sugarcoated said...

wow, its getting closer, and you are picking asoebi already. since im def not gonna be chief bridesmaid, can i book god mother in advance...lol. i feel your dad, it is the kinda thing my dad would do

mizchif said...

Introduction in the village kwa? Ndo.
My friend is complaining that her trad wed is in her village so she's not going to have her friends, but on the upside she's insisting on a destination wedding so it's kinda balanced.

Marriage counselling sounds great. All the best with your plans.

Pretty Lashes said...

jhazmyn said...

Yeah, as Aloted asked...how far with the CBM issue?
