During my awesome road trip with my now fiance' I completed a whopping FIVE things off my 2012 Bucket List! I linked the blogs to the numbers I completed (1, 4, 5, and 28)! So if you didn't read those when I wrote about them a month ago.. check them out now!
If you still haven't looked at my list to the right --> I'm getting married! Now, when you get married, you can choose to have a wedding party, a group of men and women that are close to you that stand up with you during the wedding. I actually read that historically the wedding party stands up with the bride and groom to defend them from the demons that are trying to steal them away. The wedding party is supposed to dress like the bride and groom to confuse the demons as to who is actually getting married. So, BHW and I had to decide what lucky candidates were going to defend the demons on our wedding day!
We are both blessed to know and be close to two sets of twins. One set are BHW's brothers (CW and MW). The other set are my best friends since diapers (RJR and RDR). If you have never been to a wedding, or seen one, or even heard of one.. the wedding party stands in a line. The maid of honor/best man standing closest to their respective 'people'. When I got engaged I couldn't even decide which twin to call first.. how does one make a decision like that!? That's important news! I resorted to just telling them 'Call me when you're both together I have to talk to you at the same time.' Well, I can't have them stand in the same place at the same time at the wedding so somebody has to be first! What better way to decide than with a coin toss?
Each set of twins had their own game. First one to get their 'side' (heads or tails) flipped first gets to stand closest to BHW or me. As you can see below, MW won for BHW and RJR won for me (video below for proof)! We are sincerely sorry for those who did not 'win' but the competition was fair and square! We also have the quarters that we used to make the decisions if either of you are interested in having yours.. we meant to give them to you a long time ago!
Also, I'm 22 today so that's pretty exciting. :) Check back soon to see if I've completed anything else exciting! I've still got a lot to go on my list! What item are/were you most looking forward to seeing me complete off my list? Obviously #4 was my top choice! Now that it's completed.. my next most exciting one for me would be.. 36: travel somewhere by myself. I've never done that before and it sounds like it would be pretty dang
