Operation Bridesmaid

Let me start off by saying, I have no idea why I waited over 4 months to share the following news. Some of you may have seen little posts here and there on Twitter or Instagram, but now it's starting to get real. Drum roll, please. My best friend, Jennifer, is engaged! On October 20th, her boyfriend proposed as they sailed the high seas on a Carnival cruise. I couldn't be happier for her and her fiancé, Jose. They're a great couple and I'm honored to be apart of their special day.

I've always had a tight-knit group of friends. And Jennifer has been within that group from the beginning. I seriously can't remember a time when she wasn't in the picture. After we met through our mutual best friend, Amanda, we all just clicked and the rest is pretty much history. As the years have passed, Jen and I have grown much closer. She was a member of our bridal party, so I was over the moon when she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids back in November.

I guess it didn't really start to hit me until yesterday morning, as we went shopping for bridesmaids dresses. We all met up for breakfast at Village Inn and then made our way over to David's Bridal. Jennifer already had a dress in mind and as soon as we all put it on, I knew why. I've been sworn to secrecy when it comes to the details, but let me tell you, it's beautiful. I will say, the style that she picked out fit all of our differing body types well. The price wasn't too bad either!

October is quickly approaching, so I'll be sure to keep you all in the loop with how things are going on the wedding front!
