movie review

last night, i met up with some girlfriends to see the movie, bride wars. jessi recommended seeing it since it appeared to be a cute little chick flick that would get us excited about her upcoming wedding that will be here in less than 3 months. so some of us, bridesmaids, went along with her for a low-key girl's night out.

so we get there a little early, and jessi begins to tell us the news about how she got the job she wanted, but that she'd be leaving to live in pennsylvania within the next two weeks. of course my first initial response was happiness and excitement for her because i know how bad she really wanted that job. it's not every day that opportunities like that come her way so she jumped on it. congrats, jessi!

so the movie starts. it's about two best friends who become dueling bridezillas after they find out that they have to share the same wedding date in order to keep their dream of having a june wedding at the plaza. it's pretty funny, and all around a cute little chick flick. but then it had me thinking...about best friends. about jessi moving miles away from her BFF (talley) who was sitting right beside her. we were all in tears by the end of the movie. i can't explain it really, but it left you feeling grateful for your BFF and all the shit ya'll have ever been through. here is a quote from the movie that i fell in love with since it rings so close to home...

“It was quite a wedding and as I stood there watching I realized something I’d forgotten a long time ago. Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding. But there's also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along.”

if ever i have found a deeper love and respect for my BFFs (ya'll know who you are), it was after seeing this movie. it is SO amazingly true that if you have a serious tight bond with a friend...no words, drama, cat fights, or pettiness should ever tear that apart. it's like any good relationship honestly. you will have your ups and downs, but true friendship and love will never die or fade. if it was meant to be then everyone must be willing to work on it. forgive and forget, and then laugh at little once it's over and done with. so here's to BFFs every where. i couldn't imagine walking around this earth without one, and i feel doubly blessed to have 3: jay, karla, and stacy. this may be super sappy, but i love and appreciate you guys more than ya'll will ever know. thank you for being my support system when life gets crazy. XOXO!!

Love you too, Kimmie. Don't worry Stacy, she cheated on me, too. I had to work and couldn't make the movie. That just means, Kimmie, that you have to see the movie one more time with all of us!!
