For the Love of my Brides

Disclaimer: this might be a little mushy, so if you're looking for a different kind of read tonight, I'd click the tiny "x" out of here. ;)

Today was the ultimate bridesmaid day- I met with Erin this morning to go over bridesmaid dresses and details of the wedding.  Seeing all the details of her big day really brought everything to life.  We've all had Roldan and Erin's wedding on our calendars for a while now, but it is a short three months away, and it is going to be amazing.  You will not believe what they have planned!

After that, I met with Vivian to help look for platters for her dessert bar.  We went to several stores, searching for the perfect pieces to complete the look for her big day.  All the while, I was exchanging text messages with Vanessa while she was shopping for her wedding shoes.  I think I could die wearing Vanessa's shoes. Haha.  You have to see those puppies. 

This day just is the beginning to an incredible wedding season... with that being said, this post is dedicated to my dear girlfriends.

Erin: I am so incredibly excited for everything in store for you and Roldan.  I cannot believe in three short years how our friendship has flourished and how I am now going to be standing beside you when you marry the love of your life.  We are so blessed to have you and Roldan in our lives.  David and I love that we have the two of you as our best friends, two people that we undoubtedly know we can count on for anything- whether it be a weeknight double date or someone to call on just to chat.  Thank you for your kind heart and your love for Connor, we could not begin to even explain the love we have for the two of you.  We can't wait for the big day!

Vanessa: In college, remember when they said, "you don't go to college to meet your husband, you go to meet your bridesmaid,"- and although it kinda sounded funny, at the same time, it didn't sound wrong?  I was so honored to have you as my bridesmaid, and now to be standing next to you at your wedding, I am amazed at all the memories we have together.  How lucky can we be, that through the chapters of our lives thus far, we have grown together?  From college fraternity parties, late night snacks at Mel's Diner in Hollywood, to a career at Cintas where we talk everyday- a new chapter in our lives, and I cannot wait to see how it unfolds.  I am so happy for you and Andrew.  The way you two compliment each other is admirable.  I am certain that the two of you will honor and respect each other and that will be just the beginning to your great story.  The countdown begins (I am dying to see your dance floor ;))! Ha!

Vivian: Oh my!  Who would have known that we would have been as great friends as we are?  I am forever grateful for the friendship that we have.  Our friendship is the kind of friendship where we can literally do nothing together, and it was a fufilling day lol.  And we have tested that theory. ;)  Thank you for being you.  With you, I can be myself, and you let me.  I know that Tom appreciates those same qualities that I do.  Your kind heart, makes it easy for us to count you twice when we count our blessings.  I am not quite sure I like the idea that you're going to be in YL all the time, but I suppose it'll be worth it if it means that you're one step closer to having babies! Yay- ha!

Connor's First Birthday...

Yes, I know how crazy that sounds, but it is five months away.  If you don't already know, David and I are VERY busy this year.  A lot of our dearest friends are getting hitched, and with that, we are esentially booked from March/April to August.  Five weddings total, and I am in three, David is in two.  With that being said, you can imagine why I'm ready to plan Connor's birthday and not let the poor little man get lost in the shuffle.

I have an idea of what I want the birthday theme to be, but I'm opening it up to our dear friends to help us out.  Any ideas on a cute first birthday theme??  Let us know!

BTW, I'm super excited to show pictures of our new and improved kitchen... David did very well, very, very well ;)
