BFF- Bridal Fab Fun

I am: maid of honor-ed.

One of my longest and best friendships has been with my gal Andrea. She got married this past May and in fact, almost to the day, Andrea has been a Mrs for 2 months. She is truly a friend that has proven she is just that, a friend; she has made me laugh to the point of gasping for air endlessly and not to be snubbed past, she is an awesome point of contact regarding health. And I don't have to pay her a co-pay! Yet. This person is undeniably special to me and when she asked me to be her maid of honor it really made the title mean that much more: It was entirely an honor.

Naturally after Andrea asked me, my party instinct kicked in gear and I was preparing months in advance to host the bridal shower. I thought hard about all the details my best friend would want. I knew flowers, hearts, cupcakes, deviled eggs and macaroni & cheese would be key. The rest, the scouring through selves in craft stores, collecting wine bottles, asking other girls in the ribbon aisle if they would prefer a savory ivory or off white lace better and explaining, "It's for my best friends bridal shower" and smiling wide as they nodded and smiled back, were just the extra details.
I must say the party was a hit and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. Some of her aunts and her grandma, who just so happens to be one of my favorite ladies in the world, called to thank me, my mom and Hunter's mom for hosting the day. Who does that anymore? An actual call to thank someone sadly is old world etiquette these days so I feel appreciative for that.

The love for Andrea was clear and it's such an amazing feeling to provide an event for someone you really care for and have everyone who feels the same way for that person as you do. It's a pretty big deal to stand next to someone as they say I do and also the entire way leading up to that moment. It is a beautiful, enchanting, and riveting time in their life. An honor indeed.

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
