Will you be my bridesmaid?

My BFF Laura, who lives all the way in California just got engaged. Its about stinkin time since they have been dating for 7 years. Anyway, I love her and her fiancée to death and am so happy for them.

Imagine my surprise when I got this awesome little package in the mail. So, let me set this up for you. I had just gotten home from Hawaii. 15 hours of flying, 3 hours in a car, super tired and jet lagged. I knew Laura was sending me my birthday gift and couldn't wait to get it. So when I saw 2 packages waiting for me I was stoked. I opened my awesome scarf first. It is an orange and white chevron scarf with my initials monogrammed in burgundy. Best Hokie scarf ever!

So I opened my second box. I was like "what the heck is this?" When I opened it, and saw the wine bottle, ring pop, and the note on the box, I got all teary. I felt like I was getting proposed to. It made me feel better from my tiring trip. After I had time to get all excited and text Laura, I had an epiphany... I am going to be the oldest bridesmaid ever! I was reassured by the bride that I will always be 29 to her. That made me feel a little better!

Anyway, this is such a cool idea that I had to share. I loved it. She sent them out to all of the bridal party. We are all on the east coast so it was pretty special.
