Yes, I just quoted the Golden Girls theme.  You’re humming it now, aren’t you?  🙂

Bridesmaids have been chosen!  I am lucky enough to have five amazing women stand up with me next August.  I’m going to do a little post on each of them, just because I think they’re all so dang great.

My favorite cowgirl 🙂

I asked Erika to be my maid of honor for a few reasons:  she is about as loyal as they come, she’s one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet, she’s honest and real, and she is an amazing, God-loving friend.  Not to mention she can make some of the most delicious cake you’ll ever eat (she’s pulling double duty as our pastry chef).  There are so many more reasons why she’s my MOH, but I don’t want this post to start dripping with sugar.  Erika is currently in the process of getting her master’s in education, and she helps out quite a bit on her family’s ranch.  She tutors students, substitute teaches, and manages an office building, so she’s a busy gal.  I actually met her years and years ago (before my 1st birthday) because our parents are family friends, but we didn’t actually start hanging out until I moved back to Billings a couple of years ago.  Since then, we’ve had some good times: Super Bowl parties (Go Pack Go!), brandings, shooting my first gun, farmer’s markets, game nights, ’80’s rock concerts, baseball games, and just all around good times.  Needless to say, she’s always up for a good time and tons of fun to be around 🙂

Thank you, Erika, for being my maid of honor!  Love you, friend!
