A Beach Wedding!

No, not for me!!! An old, loyal friend of mine called this past weekend to announce that the wedding she planned for January of 2008 is now being pushed up to September 2007. “I’m not pregnant,” she explained, “it’s just that we have our vacation planned for September, and we’d like nothing more than to be married on the beach.” Priceless.

Good things about this change:

1. I am no longer a bridesmaid. Due to the last minute change – and expense of travel - most of the wedding party won’t be able to make it. Now it’s just the best man and matron of honor.

2. Jason and I are turning this into our vacation as well. Why not?

3. I get to spend some time with my friend in a beautiful place free of every day stress and responsibility.

4. Ditto on the above except replace “my friend” with “my boyfriend”.

Notice how I just turned my good friend’s wedding into something good for me? Sounds terrible, I know, but if you’ve been a bridesmaid for years and have accumulated several odd colored dresses that you will never wear again you would feel the same way. However, I’ve never in my life felt the saying “always a bridesmaid, never the bride” related to me, but I do feel a little envious that she is getting married soon and on the beach. I’ve never really wanted to be married before but I guess now that I’ve found “the one” I just want forever to start now.

Anyway, 10 more weeks and I’ll be watching my friend get married on some beautiful beach while holding my sweetie’s hand. I can’t wait!

oh! I have a use for those dresses that you will never wear again! haha! Get this...(I'm excited and totally nerdy about this atm) I am planning a party where all my girls get another chance to wear those dresses they only wore once. You can wear a bridesmaids dress, a prom dress, or hey a wedding dress if you want! haha! We realize the guys aren't going to be as thrilled about this as us, so they are permitted jeans. LOL But a bunch of my girlies mixed with music, funny dress, alcohol, and laughter...this is going to be a blast! :-) I am probably going to end up wearing my prom dress, since not many of my friends seem to be getting hitched lately... :-)

I hope you have great time at the beach!

That worked out pretty well. I still think she's knocked up.
