(This may be a long one-read at your own risk) This weekend was a straight up whirlwind. If you didn't know my best friend, Logan, became Mrs. Mark Reynolds Chandler this weekend. Wow, even just typing that brought lil baby tears to my eyes. Logan and I have been friends for a really long time. She is one of the best people that I know and I love her a whole heck of a lot. She gets my sense of humor, I get hers and we tend to constantly laugh at each other. We are were destined to be friends. In my opinion.
That being said, when she got engaged I was 97% really excited. Only 3% sentimental slash sad (in a good way). Sad because she may not need me as much anymore. You know, since she will have a hubby and all... After she was engaged, she called me one day. Now I have been around the bridesmaid block a few times. I had a sense that she was going to ask me to be a maid. I was shocked slash traumatized when she asked me to be her MOH (maid of honor). I think I may have hung up or not responded. I finally breathed again and accepted the position. I had MOH anxiety all through the engagement. I don't know what I was worried about. Actually that's a lie. I know why. I'm scared of the dress, I don't know how to do makeup or wear makeup, I don't like standing in front of everyone and I always feel way way way too vulnerable So I was nervous. As the wedding approached I began to get really excited. Then I got the dress and realized it wasn't going to be horrible. Then I started thinking about my friend. It's so cool to see someone that you love transform into a bride. That being said, our wedding festivus began on Thurs morning with a bride and MOH mani pedi. It was funny. Then we had a good ol bbq dinner at the Stout compound. On Fri we had the rehearsal. I know you have been waiting on the fascinator to made its debut. Well I busted it out at the rehearsal. And I
kinda ABSOLUTELY loved it. I don't know why, but it made me feel a bit sassy. It got some pretty good reviews also.
The bride also loved it..
