Stepping Up in Wedding Shoes12.28.2011Today I spent the whole day with my best friend Renee. Its really great to spend so much time with my friends from home when Im here since I dont get to see them very much during the school year. Whats especially exciting is talking wedding plans with Renee since shes getting married in July and Im a bridesmaid! Its weird to think that Im old enough to have friends who are engaged. I mean, Ive known her since 7th grade, so weve definitely grown up together.
Anyway, weve been talking wedding stuff for a while, but today we actually ventured out and bought my shoes for the big day! We ordered dresses a few months ago during fall break and I cant wait for it to come in so I can get it fitted. And I think next week were going to go see the reception hall and walk through the church. I think doing those things will definitely make it all the more real. In less than seven months she and Noah will be married. Whoa. I cant get over it. Im so happy for them though
theyre perfect for each other.
I dont want to get all sappy; Ill save that for the speech. But I just want to say how grateful I am to be involved and that this is an exciting time. Its funny, because people always told me that during my senior year in college Id see an explosion of engagements. I kind of laughed it off at the time, but it turns out to be exactly whats happening. Crazy, but true, and I couldnt be happier!
