Mawage, Mawage, is wot bwings us togeva today

This girl and I, we go way back. We've had our ups and downs. We've been best friends and we've been on the non-speaking of the terms too. But I can't help to love her. I am myself around her. We can talk about anything, share secrets, confess wrongs, and without even talking sometimes we just know. We have not been super close since I moved away to go to college, but I love spending time with her.

And also, she just got married.

That's right. Married.

I was so excited for her when she got engaged and I counted down the days until she tied the knot with her wonderful fiance on 11/11/11 like the cool kid that she is.

Zelda and I drove back home on Thursday night in preparation for Ariel's Big Day. Her ceremony started at one in the afternoon and her reception was at three. I have never, ever, ever had as much fun at a wedding reception as I had at hers. Everything was beautiful, her music was fantastic and I decided to let go of my inhibitions and dance my life away with my friends. It was perfect for her and I could not have been happier for my friend.

And all the while I was busy being really happy, I couldn't help but be a little jealous too. I remember when it seemed that everyone I graduated with was getting married and popping out kiddos and I wanted to be a part of that. Not so much the babies movement, but the weddings. I dreamed about my dress and mooned over pictures of wedding decor. I was a total girl about it. I wanted it to happen to me.

I'm not quite so wedding-feverish anymore, understandably, but still. I am a girl, after all. I can't help but wonder when will it be my turn? All of you right now are saying to me, "Natalie, girl, please. Slow down. You have the rest of your life!" And to you I say, calm down. I'm not sitting here pining my heart away at the thought of getting married, but I'm just curious. When? How come it hasn't happened yet? But someday it will, I know. God's got this great guy lined up for me somewhere and I'll meet him someday and it will all be perfect. I know.

Somebody-very-important isn't looking to get married right away, and right now neither am I. The whole thing with PC made me approach this new relationship completely different. And even though my heart strings were tugged on a little bit this last weekend, I don't think I want to get married tomorrow, you know? I'm in a hurry and also not even a little bit rushed at the exact same time.

But it's always fun to "what if" the situation, yes? Yes.

It's a beautiful night, we're looking for something dumb to do. Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you. Is it that look in your eyes? Or is it this dancing juice? Who cares, baby! I think I wanna marry you. 


  1. Yes... wedding fever... it comes and goes. =)

  2. I love love love the title of this entry. Now I wanna watch the movie (: Please come over soon and we shall watch it, yes? Btw, I didn't open your gift. It's sitting at my mama's house collecting dust...which btw THANK YOU for that! YOU know I'm impatient!! Hahahahaha! One of my hands may have pulled at the metallic, ribbon, and my other hand smacked it as I thought, "No Megan. Bad Megan!" I'm really glad you guys had fun <3 Tell Britt that Kev and I love the pots and pans set (: He really did jump for joy when we opened it. :P And as for you Miss! IT will be your turn one day God's plan will unravel when you least expect it (; We've spoken about this, and I know you know. But when that day comes I'll be right there to celebrate with you. Love love love you <3

  3. I know that feeling. I have little desire to actually get married *myself* any time soon, but I know sooo many people who are getting married or have. I've even started saying that I must be a *real adult* now because my friends are starting to have kids on purpose. Which is scary. Tell them to stop!

    But weddings. I love weddings. :)

  4. I'm not goin to tell you to slow down, go as fast as you want. I always thought "is he on the same road as me? Did he stop by my worktoday? Where is this future being?!" come to find out we were always one step behind one another and though it took a dating website to bring us together I wouldn't have had it any other way. Turns out his best friends brother is married to my best friends sister. There were plenty of social gatherings we could have met at yet it never happened. The time will come and hit you like a ton of bricks. I may not be engaged or married yet but I knew from the time I met him he was going to be mine forever and ere we are a year later and still happier than I ever imagined. Okay I'm done writing a whole novel now...hehe
