I Don't Have My Future Husband Yet, But I Do Have My Maid Of Honor

Cherish the friends who stick by you through it all.

I Don't Have My Future Husband Yet, But I Do Have My Maid Of Honor

Marriage is a dream in all little girls heads. It is a fairy tale, a "happily ever after." But as you grow older, it becomes more of a fear. Will we get married? Will we be in love forever? Will we be happy? Will it be healthy? Will it last?

This is normal, a jillion questions and not a clue who the man will be. There is only one thing that makes this whole idea a little comforting and that is you. My best friend since 2000.

It feels like just yesterday we were little 8th graders saying, "Can you believe we've been friends for 7 years!" Well, now we are sophomores in college and going on our eighteenth year of friendship! That's 18 years of laughing so hard we pee, boy talk, cinnamon challenges, basketball games, days by the pool…the blowup pool, bad singing and MAJOR voice cracks.

We grew up over analyzing everything in life from why kids are mean to why people choose death rather than living but never have we really talked about marriage. Did you ever think of what a big step marriage is? You are vowing to be with one single person for the rest of your life. You are to trust this person with your heart and believe they are going to protect and love every single bone, joint and ligament your body contains.

He should be someone who makes you see the beautiful before the evil and the sunshine above all the clouds. A day with tears should be a month of smiles and that day of tears should have been because he accidentally dropped your makeup bag and the bronzer crumbled (or accidentally cracked your computer screen).

The absolute most important part of choosing the man you marry is that he MUST get along with yours truly. And I promise to YOU my "one-day" husband will love you (almost) as equally as he loves me.

So my first question is if we don't get married, can we sip Pink Moscato on a private beach in Hawaii, letting our hair get lighter and our bodies get darker, looking out at the beautiful blue water while listening to "The Scientist" and ancient Justin Bieber songs?

And my second questions is if this so-called "wedding" thing does happen, will you be by my side the whole time and take my hand has my maid of honor? I cannot imagine planning an event without your creative mind, your positive attitude, and your oh-so-silly personality.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of how thankful I am to have you. You listen to me when I need to talk. You are the most thoughtful person I know. We may be totally different when it comes to certain things, but you have always accepted me for me and loved me for who I am, even with those differences. We are sisters in every sense of the word and have become apart of each other's families. I am truly blessed to have you in my life.

So I can't tell you if we will find that special person, get married, and live happily ever after. But what I can say, is no matter what happens we will always have each other and that's happy enough for me.

We've directed a musical, composed genius lyrics, and graduated high school, who says we can't plan a wedding?

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
