Got back Sunday evening from a weekend in Chicago. Six friends (plus me) took my best friend Jenna to The Windy City to celebrate her soon-to-be marriage to Mr. Joshua Stacey — and to let her have one more weekend of debauchery with her pals… not to say that she won’t continue her debauchery AFTER marriage, but…you know what I mean!
I think it is safe to say that Jenna had a great time! Heck, how can you not have a good time when the weekend is all about you, right?! We took her to a piano bar…drank alot…took her to her favorite pizza place in Chicago, went to one of her favorite spots in Chicago, Second City, and then out for a night on the town.
Now, usually, Jenna and I are pretty similar in that we are good to go, but when we’re done, we’re done. Well…this weekend, I was WAY more done that Jenna! The girl was a party animal and a dancing fool, might I add! I sent her a text at one point in the night to tell her we had found a table by the doors at the bar we were at. Later, when I went to close out my tab, I went to see her and she was STILL dancing! I asked her if she had got my message and she said she had, but she was having too much fun! Hysterical!
It is such a crazy thought to me of why we were even in Chicago — Jenna is getting married. I know that this has been a well-known fact for more than a year now, but it keeps getting closer and closer and I still don’t think that it has completely hit me. I know we all have to grow up someday, but I think that getting married is when you officially cross the line from a fake grown up (that’s definitely what I am right now!) to a real one.
I am so lucky to have her by my side always and I am so lucky to be able to by her side on her special day…I probably still won’t believe it, even when I am standing right next to her as she says “I do!”.
Holy cow….what am I going to do when she has kids?!!! AHHHH!!!!
