wedding wish wednesday #31: win the lottery
Ha! Obviously. Doesn't everyone wish they could win the lottery. (I do, however, feel like I hit the "love lottery" with my future husband. I know I know...so corny...don't care!). Like I've said before, these are my wedding wishes and I can wish for whatever I want. Tonight, I am attending a financial seminar held at my school...so I've got $$$ on the brain.
Tommy and I set a reasonable budget for this little wedding of ours. We are paying for it ourselves...on a medical student and teacher salary. Which is somewhat laughable. As soooo many of you are in the same situation, you know... it's super tough! We could have scrapped the whole thing and opted for a romantic elopement...but we didn't...we want a wedding!! Unfortunately, life threw some weird shit at us - like a car accident, a couple funky car breakdowns, and a fried laptop, not to mention expensive board exams, and loads and loads of unanticipated expensive traveling for school. So our budget had to change. Which made things a lil more tough. But - we are pulling it together. At the end of the day, all we feel is blessed. Crazy, super, unbelievably blessed. Poor, yes...but beautifully blessed.
If we won the lottery, we'd do cartwheels all day. We'd pay off my student loan debt...Tommy's student loan debt...and my sister's student loan debt. We'd replace one of our wickedly old cars with a Subaru*...pick up a bottle of exceptional wine...and call it a day.
I feel like after this wedding, I'm not going to want to spend any money for a long long time. Scratch that...I'm not going to have any money to spend for a very long long time. Which is why the idea of winning the lottery is absolutely charming to entertain. What would you do if you won the lottery?
*I dunno...I'm really into Subaru's these days. When I see them on the road they are usually splattered with mud, which means they are out having adventures.
