After a lot of planning and pining over how to ask my college roommate, Michelle, to be my Maid of Honor, I finally did it!
It wasn't as glamorous as I imagined, since my original thoughts were to spend the day at the spa, or do something (expensive and) grandiose like that. However, it was marvelous and I'm so excited that I have a Maid of Honor now!
We got together at California Pizza Kitchen (not very glamorous, I know), in our sweats (even less glamorous), and I finally got to pop the question! There was no hesitation on her part, as she's just as excited about the wedding as I am. I turned over about a half-a-dozen (small and mostly funny) gifts, we discussed the wedding plans (or lack thereof), and left anxious to get this show on the road!
While we didn't get into what exactly she's going to do as MOH, I am 110 percent confident that her wheels are turning! Plus, if you knew Michelle, you'd know you don't have to ask or tell her to do anything--she's the type to just get it done!
She's a Leo and very outgoing and friendly. She's career oriented and successful. She's a planner and has great leadership skills. She loves red bull (sometimes with vodka) and she also has a pit bull, Kia, who is just as sweet as her!
Michelle and I went to the same High School and lived together in college. Not only has she helped me through countless crises in my life, I've learned a lot from her too. Plus, she's always been non-judgmental, easy to get along with, and supportive.
She was also the first to know that Aaron and I were dating. She's been there (literally, in the same house) during arguments Aaron and I had, as well as, during the many, many good times we've shared.
Overall, Michelle has always been a very reliable friend. We always have a blast when we hang out and the truth is, she has never let me down and I know she never will.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd... She's going to be my Maid of Honor! Woo hoo!
