Bridesmaids

September 29, 2011 - Kim Collette
No...I'm not talking about the movie with the same name. I am talking about actually being a bridesmaid. You see my bridesmaid story started a few months back with what I thought was a harmless phone call from my little brother Tony. He politely asked where our mother was because he needed to tell her something. I, of course, being the nib-nose that I am had to find out what-on-earth was soooooo important that he needed mom. Then Tony broke the news that he had proposed to his girlfriend Ashley. While I continued to pester him for details one thought kept popping in my head.....OH NO I BET THEY ASK ME TO BE IN THE WEDDING!

And....that thought continued for the next few weeks. That is until Tony and Ashley came "home" for a visit. And then it happened....the question no one has asked me for 34 years of my life. "Will you be one of my bridesmaids?" asked Ashley. "Of course," I answered. OH BOY....WHAT DID I JUST GET MYSELF INTO! Don't get me wrong....I'm not against marriage or weddings for that matter....in fact I kinda like them. I just never saw myself in one! I'm not a girly girl. I've never envisioned what my own wedding would be like. Nor am I a dress wearer. But....now that I have digested that....one, my little brother is getting married; two, that I am indeed a bridesmaid and three, that I am going to wear a dress....I'm actually really happy that they want me to be a part of their day.

The date is set. The location reserved. Attire all chosen. Menu decided. Now all that is left to do is get to July 27, 2012 and wish Tony and Ashley a very happy marriage! (Even if I do have to wear a dress!)

Until next time friends!
