That's right...I leave today for Vermont to be by my oldest, dearest friend's side as she ties the knot this weekend! I have been looking forward to being Allie's Maid of Honor my whole life (quite literally) and when it came down to it, asking me to be her Maid of Honor was actually a call by Allie to more or less remind me that she would not be asking me if I wanted the job but rather telling me I had it. There was something about being legally bound by the best friend pact we buried in her front yard once that was quite quickly (and accidentally) mown up by her father. In short, exactly how I wanted to be asked. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GARRV6XW5KE]
While you won't find me hosting any kind of 'roast' of the bride during my speech this weekend, I didn't want these videos I came across of us to go to waste. And, in all fairness, the joke is just as much on me as it is on her. Above is my first birthday party where little Allie would like to give me a smooch and I, first, haven't gotten the hang of that yet as you can hear my mother call out, but am also quite dazzled by her party hat. And while the Wilson Phillips ending of Bridesmaids may have been nostalgic for many of us, it really did hit home with Allie and I (and my brother Tucker, who steals the show in this). I also think it would be unfair if I didn't point out Allie's fashionable semi-crimped hair. Werk it, gurl!
While I didn't do a post on Allie's Bridal Shower, I did want to share a few pictures of the day...that led Pinterest to become my arch-enemy and I set out to make almost everything I could find on the website. I was covered in spray adhesive and pink paper for a week. Because that, ladies and gentlemen, is what love is.
So Thrill of the Chaise may be quiet for the next few days but make sure to follow me over on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook because I'll be sure to be sharing as much as I can from this very special event! And congrats to the happy couple!
