All By Myself

Several months ago, DF came home and started filling me in on the details of his all-hands meeting at work that afternoon. Bad economy. Slower growth. Blah blah blah. And we're going to Costa Rica.

His company is taking all of the employees on a free vacation. Again. Employees are allowed to bring guests but they have to be spouses. The trip is this weekend. And since DF and I are not married yet, I'll be staying home while he frolics in the jungles of Costa Rica.

Ok frolics is probably not how he'd describe it.

I know what you're going to say. If I really wanted to go, why didn't we just elope? Well, for several reasons. But mostly because I didn't want to. And also because I wasn't ready.

Yes, when we got engaged, I knew that at the end of it we would be married. I was ready for that. For the 9 months of engagement and planning. Not to run down to a JP for a quickie wedding for a vacation six months premature.

Even though I'm confident and comfortable with this decision, I'll be home and having spa days and bridal showers (which on a side note, YAY! I'm looking forward to it.), while DF goes to Costa Rica. Without me. Bastard.

Look at the bright side - this is the last trip he gets to take without you. :)

I second Michele's sentiment! However I would probably be royally ticked as well. ;)

Oh, I would never suggest that! I figure if you wanted to elope, you probably would have done it already, right?

Have lots of girls night out and girls night in, bridal showers, spa days... in the end you might be the one who has more fun ;-)

Costa Rica is one such place that is popular for its spas. It is suggested to choose the type of spa that suits your personal needs. Prefer a resort spa if you wish to feel homely environment along with the entertainment and spa experience. For more information visit here:
