So crisis averted I guess. Called my mom to talk about my dress and travel plans, etc. when all of a sudden a voice in the background says "does Sallie's Niece want some money for her trip?"
Dun dun dun.....Dad to the rescue!!! First thing tomorrow I will have $100 sitting pretty in the bank.
I've been bailed out just like the banks.
Sure I could have said no but he wants me to enjoy myself and frankly I would be a whole less stressed if I know this weekend was going to run smoothly. Also if I had planned my wardrobe weeks in advance but that's a whole other story.
The question now becomes: do I up the wedding gift back to my intended $100 or take a dolphin tour? I don't know. I think I'll stick to the $50 plan and then get my parents a souvenir. Or something for Boyfriend. Or maybe even me!
And yes, dear readers, I do feel a little ashamed to admit to you all that I am 28 years old and I'm taking money from my parents but I'm being honest. They like to help me out and sometimes you just gotta let em. Now I won't feel like it's a major crisis if someone wants to go out to a bar or restaurant while we are away. I can even rent a bike. Or see some dolphins.
