Valentine’s Day Wedding…

9 02 2010

You guys know by now that I actually like Valentine’s Day. I know some folks don’t… I do. Always have, and was planning to enjoy it just like I normally do until I was so lovingly reminded by one of my friends that I have a wedding to attend on… dun dun DAH… Valentine’s Day.

I’ve known the wedding was coming up, and actually I’ve known for a very long time that the wedding was going to be on Valentine’s Day – but for some reason it never hit me. And honestly, it still hasn’t. I’m not bothered by this fact at all, a fact that gave my friend quite cause for concern. Her theory – I was subconsciously pushing this down so that I wouldn’t think about the fact that not only will I be attending the wedding dolo, but it’s on Valentine’s Day, AND Jake will be there… very possibly not dolo.

But the thing is… that’s really and truly the least of my concerns. You know what have been my concerns? Making sure my dress fits… making sure I don’t have a Carrie moment in my 4 1/2 in stilettos (a la when she fell down the runway on SATC)… getting to Philly and back safely while riding the Chinatown bus with CJ… trying to get some rest in the midst of all this snow in DC (and lucky me… my job requires most folks to have some kind of snow duty)… praying the Saints into a win in the Super Bowl… curing world hunger – basically everything else in the world has been more important to me than the fact that this wedding is on Valentine’s Day lol.

Now, I will admit that a couple months ago, I was dreading (no exaggeration there) seeing Jake there with a possible date… you know, the idea of seeing the man you saw yourself marrying at someone else’s wedding… can kinda be a little daunting. But I tell you no lie when I say that I’m so calm about that now. I don’t know why… I don’t know what happened, but somewhere somehow this Israelite finally passed her test and stopped wandering in the damn desert over this man! *

Either way, I am actually happy to be spending this day celebrating this couple’s love for each other. It may seem corny, but I think there’s no better way to celebrate Valentine’s actually – plus I’ll have 3/4 of the Mafia with me (which of course means trouble/trouble!!!), we’ll be getting loose because it’s the last weekend of Mardi Gras (Carnival for New Orleans’ natives), and you know I’ll have a certain Cosby’s smile to think of as well, if I get really desperate lol.

Sounds like a great Valentine’s to me. What are you doing on Sunday?

* Sorry to hit you guys with the deep Bible reference, but it gets real in the field sometimes lol*

Update: I wrote this post prior to the Saints winning the Superbowl… so I actually have one less concern, because the Saints are soooo the Super Bowl 44 Champions!!!!!! WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so proud of you.

BUT I HATE Valentines day – even when I’m with someone – I hate it. This is my first V-say alone in two years so I hate it even more this year. I will be playing Andre 3000’s happy v-day song on v-day and signing “f that valentine’s day” all day. Luv ya!

@ HoodAesthetic – you read AND commented on the blog???? That must mean it’s going to snow in DC… oh wait, it’s already doing that. I guess that just means it takes a snow storm to get certain folks to comment on the blog… LOL

@ Boss Brown – you are hilarious! You do know I was writing this post while I was sitting next to you Friday night in the command center, right LOL But anyway, I have a feeling that you’re V-Day will be a lot better than you think it’s going to be. It won’t be snowing anymore, so that’s already a plus and you won’t be in DC – a double PLUS! (we won’t talk about how it’ll probably snow the next day though, ok?) 🙂

[…] kiss him, even as he attempted to kiss me… This wasn’t a return to what happened at the Valentine’s Wedding. All it did was show me that even though it’s been a year and 1/2 since I finally ended our […]
