Happy Weekend readers! This week was a particularly busy one for me. I had the Rittenhouse Row Annual Meeting Monday night. Where Wednesday at the Twisted Tail and Thursday night was the Tastemade Philly launch. Now I am gearing up for a celebratory weekend with my roommate’s OT pinning ceremony and on Saturday I am going to two different suburbs for wedding dress shopping and an open mic night. Phew that’s a lot for an opening paragraph.
Let me clarify, I am NOT trying on wedding dresses haha
This will mark my first (ever) bridesmaid duty for my dear friend Kim who got engaged in December. So I am going to share how her and Wade completely blindsided me with their engagement. Since today is National Proposal Day, ironically, I’ll share how I found out about this momentous occasion.
Friday, December 12th
Kim: Hey! Wade has to come into Philadelphia to drop off some equipment for a show. I was going to come with him and maybe we can all go to lunch?
Me: Sure!! Come park at Scott’s house, since there is free parking and we can go to brunch.
Kim: Great, see you then!
Scott and I were at a holiday party with his classmates that Friday night so during this whole texting convo I was impressed with how I still managed to plan and schedule a lunch date while having enjoyed a few rounds of drinks.
Saturday, December 13th
I was so excited to see Kim and Wade I was rushing Scott around his house while singing Kim is coming, Kim is coming! (I used to live down the hall from Kim in our adorable house in South Philly so living in different states now requires singing about her arrival.) Finally, Kim and Wade arrived and I ran downstairs to open the door.
Scott was talking with Wade and I was chatting with Kim. Of course as one of my best friends, I thought she looked beautiful like usual and I started to compliment the jacket she had on. Which led to…
Kim: So… I kind of lied. Wade isn’t up here to work a show.
Me: I know, he’s only up here to drop off equipment for a show.
Next, Kim takes off her left glove and I look down to see a beautiful sparkly diamond on her ring finger. I’ll save you the sappy part where I instantly screamed like Charlotte from Sex and The City then started to cry. It was one of those moments that you always imagine will happen and then you can’t believe it did. I was so happy that Kim and Wade came to Philadelphia from Wilmington to share their news with Scott and I.
Now that I am gearing up for three weddings this year and two (maybe three, Amanda wink wink) in 2016, I’ll have lots of new experiences and content to share on the blog.
