The Final Countdown!

The next time you hear from me, my best friend will be a married woman! SO weird, but SO happy for her. I wish could remember every single one of the fun times we had together, but I'm sure alcohol has to do something with my fuzzy memory.

Emily and I became friends our freshman year of college when we pledged the same sorority, Chi Omega. The next four years were full of mixers, road trips, tailgates, concerts, boys, and picking up the pieces for each other once our hearts broken by those boys. Now that we've graduated college, not much has changed..except that we're not attending mixers anymore and we get excited about buying furniture, gardening and other "grown up" activities.

The first time I "met" David was actually the day before Emily met him! I was on a friend's boat on July 4th two years ago and towards the end of the day, after many adult beverages had been consumed, there was this CRAZY guy dancing all by himself on the front of the boat. I laughed at him and didn't think much more about it.

The next day, a big group of us went to Folly beach for the day and went downtown that night. While we were at our typical hangout, Brick, I spotted Emily talking to a guy while she was waiting on a drink. I suddenly realized it was CRAZY BOAT DANCING GUY! I assumed she needed to be saved so I went over and tried to interfere. Come to find out, she was actually enjoying talking to CBDG, so I left the two of them alone. The following day, they went on a lunch date to Dog & Duck and the rest is history..I would also like to add that David claims that he saw Emily at Brick two weeks prior to them meeting and said he saw her checking him out.

"A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences."

Holy crap, I think I just wrote my MOH speech!

Now, of course, time for a few pictures:
