Bridesmaid to Bridesmatron

Weddings are such fun anomalies where you get  to dress up, take pictures, and celebrate the people who deem you important enough to share in their special day! Have you ever been to a wedding and been considered single? Regardless of your facebook status and who's picture occupies  that "in a relationship" slot, you are still considered the loan ranger with a plus one set to take on a most important mission of your Best Friends Wedding (Pun Intended!). There always comes a moment in your mission where your relationship status is placed on display, and don't worry girls you won't miss it because this moment is cued with the melodic harmony of "All the Single Ladies" and you know it's your time to put your catchers mitt and face mask on and fight the other single gals out there for the chance to capture the old wives tail of being the next to go from Miss to Mrs.

Two of me and the hubs besties in life walked down an isle said "I do" joining together in a covenant and we were so lucky to be there to see it all first hand! I cannot begin to explain how much of a blessing this couple has been in our lives, how can you truly put our kind of history and friendship together in a single emotion or phrase! (embrace the warm fuzzies for a sec) And we're back, this was our first wedding as husband and wife and let me tell you it's definitely the way to go to a wedding....... already wedded (unless it's your wedding obvi!) It was so great to enjoy their day and see how everything that unfolded that day, from the skeet shooting in the morning, the horse bonding in the afternoon, the running back to the barn for shelter from the rain in the late afternoon, and the high energy dancing in the evening perfectly reflected our sweet friends! How exciting to go through life now together as newly wed besties! 

Well don't fret "All the Single Ladies, All the Single Ladies" because your day is coming! The day when you no longer are cued by that song which so easily sticks itself into your brain (I do apologize because by this point I realize you're humming it) to jump up and claim your bit of superstitious desire! The day will come when you will wake up and realize, I never have to catch a bouquet again! So enjoy it while you get to do it, make the best of it and knock a girl or two down (it makes for better pictures!) and one day it will be your turn to toss that bouquet and when you toss it remember that you are no longer a girl looking to catch it!

Mmmm What You Say

Several day ago my day started simply perfect. I rolled out of bed with ease, getting ready seemed to take no time at all, and I was actually leaving the house before my husband! (which for me is quite an accomplishement since it takes him 5.4 minutes to get ready) I went to kiss and hug my husband goodbye (worst part of the day) and wish him a good day! He hugged me and said, "Whatever happens today I'll still love you." Which put sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows morning on hold to question what that meant and did he know something that I didn't?!?!?!? This is something you shoud never do to the femail mind..... leave it to question itself over and over again! Anyways I asked him what that meant and he non-chalantley replied, "Oh nothing just wanted you to know". Instead of overthinking this comment intended for sweetness I decided to hit the "reset" button in my head and go about the morning! (which by the way everyone should have a reset button, it's for all those little unpleasantries that can just pop up out of no where.... when they do just reset and all will be right with the world again, I am aware that when I go from Mrs. to Mommy that reset button will probably get harder to push!) Anyways so I grab my keys and bounce out the door shouting my love for my husband! I got in the car, turned it on began to back out of the garage and WHAM! I backed up right into the hubs car! Stomach goes into throat and I run back into the house and swore that he parked further over than usual...... this did not however justify my case and in fact that peice of evidence was never even allowed to be submitted for review! While hubs runs outside I tried to pull into the garage at an angle slamming my front tire into our brick steps just as my prince charming opens the door, not something that helped my case in any way! I then proceed to stand on the steps while he inspects his car fighting back the tears that typically follow my stomach entering my throat. He then walked up to me put his arms around and said, "well, I guess the Lord is really putting me to the test of loving you no matter what happened today." I smiled hugged him and we both left and now we can laugh about it! (only after a good friend of ours took a look at it and smoothed out some bumps! I owe you KHill!) This all took place within 3 minutes of him declaring that he will love me no matter what happened that day! I told him that I know that to be true, but never say it again!
