Perks of Being Engaged : Winning At Life Right Now

If you're not engaged, that's perfectly okay. It took me a long time to get here. There were the boyfriends from college that were usually too drunk to function as a good man, the ones after college who didn't know what the hell they wanted to do with their lives, and some that were just okay. 
I found my match when I least expected it. We dated for six years until he recently made the big move and put a ring on it. Chuck is lucky he got wise before our cruise to the Bahamas or else he may have gone overboard. 

If you're already married, that's awesome too. I someday will be in your position...just not right now, and not this year. We are aiming for a date in the fall of 2015 and are in the process of choosing a venue before we set an exact date.

My personal perks &why I think being engaged is great:
- I will never have to hear again, "Is he going to propose soon or what?!"
-No one is asking "So, when are you going to start having babies?"
- I get a valid reason to search Pinterest for endless hours
-My mission has become acquiring a pair of Louboutin's for the Big Day (anyone have a few extra dollars?)
-I have a really good focus on getting fit and lean again
-I get to plan this really big awesome party (I LOVE parties)
-I own a new piece of jewelry that I didn't pay for
-Manicures at all times are a must. That means time at the salon or buying new nail polish colors
- I get to wear shirts that say "FEYONCE" --That's cool.
-I am able leave the house looking a hot mess and feel okay about it. I have a ring on my finger. Someone out there loves me.
-I can ask my best girls to stand by me on my special day and celebrate this new life changing event
-I don't have to cook anymore  Well I don't have to worry that he's judging my domestic skills at this point

and my favorite perk...

I haven't even reached the best part,
the one where I get to spend the rest of my life married to my best friend.


Thank you Chuck for taking me off the market so I can experience all these awesome benefits. You're my number one on this list, even if you are a little crazy.
