She started it…….

I’m literally minding my own business and I show up to “BFF’s” wedding to Mr. Perfect.

So I’m there and and she starts throwing in little “tricks” like this one of…..
“Hey…look at me…..I’m looking into the eyes of my soul mate”…..
I was not being lured into this whatsoever.  
Sniff, Sniff
Dang that ocean air….it was making my eyes water…..

And then they tried this little dandy…..

Having “Mr. Perfect” watching his bride walk towards him and his eyes started welling up with tears and with the most peaceful look of contentment on his face……
It sure as heck wasn’t going to convince me……. 
Sniffle, Hiccup, sniffle…..(the hiccup was for the emphasis of this intensifying)…….just go with it.
Then she started the whole….. “having her rotten son bring her towards her future husband with an excited look on his face”…..give me a break…..I am so not falling for this……
Sob…sniffle sniffle.….
So then she goes and has her teenage daughter walking proudly down the aisle with tears in her eyes….
which, as her daughter had shared on one of the “fireside” chat nights by my pool……
Was this an adjustment to her, yes…..but she knew her moms happiness was so evident….and she was ready for this change….
You are not getting me with this craziness you beautiful girl you!
Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!
And then……..I started seeing moments like this…….
When no-one but the photographer was looking….
Well….and me creeping off the boardwalk…….
But I was far off zooming in….. they didn’t know I was creeping in on them…….

Until I let out an “unlady like” whoop and hollered’ down at her……
So what does she do?
She threw this little magic arrow my way……

This smile……what’s up with that kind of trickery BFF?
Dang it…….
And what about this ?
Get that stinking “I’m so thrilled” look off of your face Mr. Perfect………running right by Mr. Romeo with that kind of little voodoo magic spraying off everywhere………
That’s just evil…….

And “Romeo”?
Their trickery was working on him apparently…..
He starts chatting it up with the pastor while I’m breaking out in hives….
I’m thinking…….he can’t honestly think we are ready for this step………
My sweat glands started overworking…….and I could feel my blood pressure rising…….
My heart started pounding………. and for the life of me I couldn’t break those two apart…..
I tried the whole fake…
“I’m lonely over here face”
-Nothing-
Then the “Hey, I was bitten by a beach crab!”
-Crickets-
Even the……”Hey, look, a hurricane!! “…..
-Nada-
He was hooked in line and sinker or hooked up hook, line and sinker…or…reeled up on a hook, line or….I don’t know….I’m awful with those kinds of phrases……
but….you know what I mean…..
I’m telling you….. he had us booked for pre-marital counseling, life groups, choir
You name it…. before I could drag him off.

Then she pulled out all the guns……
And started doing this kind of fairytale stuff…………

And this…………Stopppppp…….

And this……..Mr. Perfect does have a sweet, sweet momma…….

And wouldn’t you know a sweet daddy too…………….
quit it!

 and this…it just started getting to me…..
and ….
well, I honestly have to believe this little brat was in on it too……..
Dang it……..

Look at his beautiful sister…… she was so precious to watch the whole night….her heart was sweetly tender…..faker…….she was so working me.
Then, Little Cassanova, started throwing in a couple of creative dance moves just to throw me off and make me take my guard down and  think they weren’t all in on this together…….
I fell for it.
My hives started going in a tad……….My blood pressure slowed down…….My sweat glands stopped overworking…….thank goodness………
and I was dancing away….minding my own business….having a good time…..

And inside….it hit me and  I knew……..
Revelation #1
Mrs. Paparazzi…….. well, she was there for the free drinks……..
Revelation #2
Romeo……. well……he looked like he might need a little dance tutoring….. except when it comes to shagging and then he’s like ” back off baby”…. and it’s like “dancing with the stars”
I can barely keep up…
Truly, it’s pitiful…I’m all over the place and he’s so patient with me tripping up all over him….and he still looks good with me all over his feet…..
But all of that aside……..Most importantly………I knew………

That, dang it……

Revelation #3
He made me the happiest woman on earth……..

I also knew that our friends had made the sweetest step to the beginning of a new life together…..
She was a beautiful bride………as committed to Christ,  as she was her new husband and children……..
 
And…..
She was a big ole brat…….not really in the big sense…..but in the big as in brat sense……
She even threw me the dang bouquet….
Brat
Then they popped that garter straight over to Mr. Romeo with their devious planning…..
Brats
And dang it…….I knew it……..we were next…..
And now…..
I cannot wait……..
BFF…….Your day was beautiful……You did find Mr. Perfect…….your children are adjusting beautifully…..
and  I can’t wait for “our” day and am so glad you and your family will be here for it!
Thank you for being you……..for quietly knowing I needed your voodoo trickery ways……..
.but honestly….. for letting me talk……..ask……..and  then allowing us to share in this night with your family…..
Your love is evident and true…..
Thank you…….
Love,
Me
