Amy and Matthew’s Pre-wedding fun

This weekend was one of the best I can remember, honestly.   Amy and I have been friends for almost 6 years now.  We met through mutual friends (technically, I was dating her fiance’s best friend for a hot second the summer before our freshman year in college) and we were convinced to ride alone together to White Lake to spend the day with the boys (her fiance and my ex).  It is such a funny story to think about, because all I knew of Amy was what my then boyfriend was telling me. He kept stressing to me “Don’t be LATE! Amy likes to be on time everywhere she goes!!”  So when I arrived to Amy’s driveway nearly 10 minutes late, I was sweating bullets and just knew some awful girl was going to meet me and we were sure to have a miserable 2 hour drive together. 

 We LOVE to laugh at that story because while Amy is punctual, it is certainly not a defining part of her personality and we ended up becoming the best of friends that day.  We even ditched our potluck roommates second semester freshman year at NCSU to live together and we loved every minute of living in the smallest dorm available on campus.  I have loved this girl ever since and I am so happy to see her and Matthew preparing to spend the rest of their lives together.  I could go on and on about how much I love them, but I do want to share some pictures from our amazing weekend.  Amy’s family held the Couples Shower at her parent’s home on Saturday evening and I co-hosted a lingerie shower for her with one of the other bridesmaids on Sunday afternoon.  The Tar Heel and I had the best time at the Couples Shower and he got along with everyone wonderfully, though the majority of the folks were my friends.  Just further proof that he is the greatest ever. :)
