And this is how we feel...
We still have a ton to do but are trying very hard to soak up this time of being engaged.
This weekend we are finally finishing registering!
I know Jared is just excited about scanning things with the price gun...
But it is time we get serious.
For the six month mark I thought it would be fun to introduce the six beautiful ladies of the wedding party...
CaitlinMaid of Honor
Caitlin and I met in middle school and didn't exactly get along at first. However, we became inseparable the summer before starting high school. She is like a sister to me and I am so thankful she will be standing next to me on the biggest day of my life.Where do I even begin? Meghan and I have been friends since as long as I can remember. My parents met her dad when we first moved to North Carolina when I was four. We grew up playing soccer together and became especially close in middle school. Typically one of us loses their voice when we are together, hopefully that won't happen before the big day!
I met Layne our Freshman year of college at NC State. She was my suite-mate and Caitlin's roommate. We became close fast. She has always been able to make me laugh and
most of the time sometimes not even on purpose. She is one of the most genuine people I know and I am so lucky to be able to call her one of my best friends.
I really wanted to write her name "HANNN-NNUUHH" because I screamed that down the hall of our dorm just a few nights after we met. Hannah doesn't like hugs or affection really, but she is blunt and cries at just about everything. I love everything about her. Thank you, University Towers for bringing two wild forces together.
I met Alyson through Hannah our freshman year as well. First thing that comes to mind when I think of Alyson is, kind. She would honestly do anything for her friends and is always willing to help out with whatever is going on in our lives. She is also really good at making laugh, a lot. She is just my sweet little Aly.
Charli is my soon to be sister-in-law! She is Jared's younger and only sister. Luckily, I am just barely 4 months older than her because Jared always said he would never date younger than his sister ;) Charli and I have a lot in common. For example, we both enjoy eating brownies with ice cream for breakfast and watching documentaires about Robert Pattinson (this actually happened one Christmas in Texas). I am so excited to officially have the sister that I have always wanted and that we not only get along, but we are friends!
This was one of my favorite posts thus far! I was able to
walk scroll down memory lane looking at all the pictures and remembering the times we shared together. It was a task to find both "decent" and "appropriate" pictures for the collages I made for each of them. But, writing this brought back so many wonderful memories, reminded me of how much fun we have had, and also made me feel kind of old. I have known each of my bridesmaids for at least 5 years and that says a lot.
I am beyond blessed to be able to share the most wonderful day of my life with these six lovely ladies! Friends like mine are few & far between and I want each of you to know how special you are to me. Thank you for all that you have done for me and my relationship with Jared over the past years. I love you all and can't wait to continue the memories!
