The Speech of All Speeches


I am the maid of honor at my best friends wedding…in three weeks…OMG I literally just stopped typing, looked at my desk top calendar and recounted. THREE WEEKS. And I have a speech to write.
Normally, I’m a fine speaker. I don’t punctuate pauses with “um” or “like.” I can be witty, heartfelt, all around okay. But as the date grows nearer I realize that this isn’t just me standing in front of people talking. Which believe it or not, I actually don’t like doing. But me, standing there telling a large group of people how much I love these two people.
I love them so much I’ve been watching YouTube videos on “Best Maid of Honor Wedding Speeches” (Which as much as I love these people I am not rapping…) I’ve been going to the library for love quotes and etiquette books and so on and so forth. This means so much to me, that I’m over thinking it. So, today, I’ve decided to just sit down and write. Write about everything I know/love about them.
So my question to you is, when was the last time you sat down and thought about how much you really love someone other than your significant other? It really is a heartwarming experience. You should try it sometime.

I Wanna Be a Disney Princess…

…minus the crazy bad guys and mean extended family. While reading Cocoperez.com this morning I came across something that made my little romantic heart go all a flutter. New Disney Princess wedding gowns by Alfred Angelo and they are beautiful!The little princess in me screams out to wear these gowns around the house singing to inanimate objects and furry woodland creatures. But I don’t think you want me to do that…I don’t sing all that well and if I spun around in my tiny apartment I’m pretty sure these dresses would knock things off of the walls and off of shelves not to mention Boyfriend might have me committed…Anywho. Take a look at the pretty new dresses and remember back to your favorite Disney movie and what made it so special to you. Happy Hump day!

And…It’s My Friday…

Today is my Friday and let me tell you- It’s been a long one! I got to work a bit late this morning…I blame the alarm clock…And after running through the door of my office building sunglasses still on I frantically boot up my computer to find…nothing. I have zero new emails. Could this be right? Could this perhaps be the apocalypse? I ALWAYS have new emails. Most of which have a big red urgent exclamation point attached to them. Have I done such an amazing stand up job that everything is running smoothly? YES! and no…
Yes that there are no problems (today), no because now I have been sitting here all day surfing the internet constantly looking over my shoulder as to not get caught…
This is my Friday. I don’t want my boss to find something else for me to do. I want to sit here and be bored while I check Facebook a million times and cyber stalk my friends. So on that note I leave you. I’m going to get my nails did so I look pretty for a wedding I’m going to this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!

I Do! You Do? I’ll be there too!

I have weddings on the brain. Not only am I attending a wedding in only a short couple of weeks but I have also been given the honor to be Main of Honor to one of my best friends.
Naturally this has me thinking about my own imaginary wedding. Gossamer, tea lights, soft kisses, too much food and a LOT of dancing. Anyway, this isn’t about me…
So I’ve been perusing wedding blogs, sites, books, and magazines thinking about how to help my dear friend plan and I’ve come to one simple conclusion. Weddings are a whole lotta work my friend!
There are so many decisions to make, so many options to chose from. As overwhelming as it all looks, it most importantly looks like a blast.
So if you know anyone about to get married or just starting the wedding process, next time you see them. Hug them, tell them they are amazing and remember one simple thing. Wear comfortable shoes because all of you are in for a wild adventure!
