Links Lisa Likes – I’m Going to be a Bridesmaid

A few weeks ago, one of my oldest friends from elementary school texted me some amazing news: she got engaged!

Naturally, I was ecstatic that 1) she was engaged and 2) I was one of the first people she told. Excuse me while I go and wipe my tears.

Anywho, I had dinner with her on Thursday night. As we were catching up about work, family, and all of that, she asked if I would be one of her bridesmaids! Of course I said yes! #brbcrying

I would totally put a picture up of the two of us right now, but her and her boyfriend fiance haven’t exactly made it public, and I know a bunch of my friends know about this blog, so I don’t want to be the one to leak the info, at least not on here. And yes that was one long run on sentence but who cares because I’m excited!!!

So, instead of a picture of her/us, here’s a picture of a pillow that perfectly describes how I’m feeling right now:

    I absolutely loved being a bridesmaid! Even though I wasn’t close with the other bridesmaids, it was like joining a whole new family. We went to Vegas and had a blast at the wedding. Good luck!

    Just don’t refer to him as the boyfriend anymore! My sister kept getting so mad after she got engaged because I kept calling Nick her boyfriend.

      It’s going to take a while for me to get used to calling him her fiance!

      Loved your post, DB40!

  5. Yay! How fun!!!! My bridesmaid days are long passed, but I remember them with fondness. It’s technically only 3.5 years before I could officially be a mother of the bride – now that’s scary! 🙂
