Three of my friends are getting married this year: my BFF from 8th grade to her college sweetheart, my best friend from Rutgers who has loved her Marine for the past five years, and a fellow reserve friend who's expecting. Moreover, my best flight attendant friend got engaged last night.
I'm destined to be an old maid.
I have conflicting feelings about all this - I'm excited for each one of them and I truly wish them the best! It's just that we're all at this awkward in between age of still living at home (bride #2 will be living at home until her wedding night, that makes me feel better) and not quite yet started our "real lives". But the more I look around, the more I realize that this is pretty much it. And to keep track of this in between-ness time and to celebrate my pity party, I invested in my very own Skagen two faced mother of pearl bling watch. I figured it was slightly more positive than the Burger King that I desperately wanted to gorge myself on. Did I mention I got a good deal on it? Mazel tov!
