Three times a bridesmaid…but 4?

on February 14, 2010

This Valentines weekend has been such fun. No moping around for this single lady! :) I invited Susanna over for the weekend, and we had us a crazy good time! We explored downtown Little Rock, watched movies, sang Taylor Swift songs, and danced the night away yesterday. :) She is such a bundle of fun. We decided that “un-love” songs were the best ones, such as “You’re Not Sorry”…. you know, the ones that weren’t mushy! We didn’t want to start pining or anything. ;) All in all, it was probably the best Valentines Eve ever, ha.

The highlight of the day, though, was when I found out a dear friend became engaged!! Her story is a remarkable testimony of the power of God to do anything, and I am hoping she might give me permission to tell it here one of these days. We shall see. ;) Anyhow, there was much rejoicing in my little apartment upon hearing her news!

There is an added bonus for me, too: I get to be a bridesmaid! :happy dance:

But now it has me thinking. I have been in the process of fulfilling the old adage “Three times a bridesmaid, never a bride”, but now this is going to make number 4. Hmm. My supposition is…. could it be that an extra time reverses the “curse”? Of course, as friends at lunch reminded me, I better watch out not to be a bridesmaid 6 times. Being a bridesmaid three times… twice… oof. :shock: Now that would be catastrophic.

Ah well. Nevermind. Excuse me, y’all, my tongue is starting to ache from staying in my cheek too long. ‘Night!

  1. Ahhh, I love hearing wonderful testimonies of God’s faithfulness when it comes to relationships, I know my story with Jesse is definitely a testament to God’s faithfulness, He is amazing to us!

    Ooh, I don’t think I’ve heard your story, Anna! You should share it sometime. :) I would love to know how God brought you together!
