DEARSUGAR NEEDS YOUR HELP: My Friend Invited Herself Over On My Anniversary Weekend

DEARSUGAR and Panicked Penny need your help. An out of town guest needs a crash pad the weekend of her first wedding anniversary. Should she tell her buddy to hit the road, or should she oblige and make plans to go out with her husband to celebrate?

Dear Sugar
This Sunday is me and my hubby's first year anniversary. We've decided to save money and stay home all weekend but we wanted to make the weekend special by cooking together, making a fire, watching old movies and defrosting our wedding cake that's been in our freezer all year. We so rarely ever get an entire weekend of downtime together, and I am so excited for this.

I just got a call from an old friend of mine who mentioned that she was coming to town this weekend. Of course I was happy to hear from her, but I was hesitant to make plans with her since this is our anniversary weekend. I felt terrible that I was beating around the bush, and just when I was about to tell her that I would love to meet her for coffee on Sunday, she told me that she desperately needed a place to stay.

My heart sank. I froze and told her that I'd have to call her back. She was at our wedding, in fact, she was a bridesmaid, so she knows this is our anniversary so she must be really desperate. What should I tell her? Is it selfish of me to want just one weekend alone with my hubby to celebrate our first year anniversary?
