Going to the Chapel...

A couple weeks ago one of my very best friends from college, Becca, told me that her forever-boyfriend had finally popped the question!  She would soon be joining the ranks of the old-married-lady club and I was very excited to have her J 
Little did I know just.how.soon. she’d be getting hitched.  She just told me that they’ve set their date for JULY!  Only four little months away!  I’m beyond excited for her and am hoping beyond hope that I can get there for it. 
Scratch that.  I’ll be there, come hell or high water.  I’ll figure out a way.  I’m hoping that Jake will be able to get the weekend off work so we can drive out there together.  Please keep your fingers crossed for me!  If he can’t then I have a friend in Chicago so maybe I’d be able to swing through and pick her up so we could car pool for the rest of the way.  I suppose I’m getting ahead of myself, though- that is four months away, after all J
I cannot wait to boogie the night away with Becca and Nate to celebrate their wedding!  I’m pretty sure these four months will fly by!
I first met Becca in an orientation meeting for our semester abroad in France.  She was tall, skinny, gorgeous, and I thought I’d hate her.  Well, turns out I didn’t and we ended up living together for our senior year (hilarity and drunkenness ensued).  After graduation we’ve stayed close, and she was even one of my bridesmaids for our wedding!
Here’s a quick photo recap of our friendship up until now:

We cut the bottom off some pants and wore them as a hat... cause really, why not?

We studied in college.  A LOT.

We also spent a lot of time making macaroni and cheese.

Here we are studying again!

At one of our first French restaurants!

At my French host family's birthday party for me.

We took pictures of ourselves a lot - this was on our drunkenly-planned-last-minute trip to Germany.

Us at my wedding!



Cheers to Becca and Nate!  I can’t wait to see where the rest of this life takes you!

Haha Burnettes Vodka, that's still my go-to liquor. So cheap, and really, doesn't taste half bad.
Hooray for weddings! I have none to go to this year and it's quite depressing.

I wish I could say yay for weddings. But yay for attending someone else's big day! I hope you can figure out a plan where both of you can go!
