Dum Dum DaDum

Something is going on! Everyone and their mom--literally--is getting engaged or married this spring/summer. There are AT LEAST 10+ weddings this summer of kids from CBC (now, definitely, deemed Central Baptist Marriage College), whose weddings are between May and August. AT LEAST! I also have other non-CBC friends getting married this summer. It’s crazy! When I was a freshman/sophomore, never did I have the inclination or desire to get married and take that plunge into responsibility, but times they are a changin. Apparently it’s not a big deal to have an education, financial security, a job, a place to live, and a future goal set in place before one takes the non-lifechanging, baby step into marital bliss. Love IS all you need! Thank you Lennon and McCartney.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against marriage...I’m actually quite for it! If God has confirmed it, then go for it. Right now, though, it just seems like getting married is the cool thing to do...a trend if you will. I suppose I missed the memo that said only cool people are getting engaged and married this summer. Dang it! Well, there’s still time! I’m sure I could find someone, somewhere, sometime soon.

Here’s your invitation to my big day:

~You are cordially invited to the coolest marriage ever of~

*Brittney Leigh Boatman*


*(it’s a surprise…to both you and me!)*

~The matrimonial ceremony will take place June 8 or 9th (depends on how busy I am) at noonish something with a KICK A!! reception directly following the nuptials~

~The blessed event will take place in Czech Republic, Poland, or Ukraine (not quite sure where I’ll be those days) at a lovely place that has not yet been determined.~

**The Bride is registered at Josiah Venture (www.josiahventure.com): Financial Support is the only gift wanted and needed. Do not send any stuff as she no where to put it!**

Hope you can make it!!

You make me smile

And, ya know what? There's another memo goin' around that bein' single is the fun thing! Sheesh, who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a dress that they will wear only once? And what's up with the same song at every wedding? - "here comes the bride..."

OK, so getting married would be neat.. but I know that God has amazing plans for you right now, and I cannot wait to hear about how He's using you in Europe! I am praying for you and I love you!

Of course you're in the wedding!
Johnson and I can't have the same wedding date! Man..I'll have to change that. Thanks Liz!

Singleness is the coolest! Yes, I want to get married, but this post isn't so much about that. No, I'm not bitter...at least I don't think I am. Yes, I have a desire to be married, but I'm not settling for less than God's best. Thanks Sammy!

You go girl! I hope you don't mind I sent your wedding info to Oksana and Tanya, so save piece of cake for them too:)
I agree with you that it's great to get married, but I won't settle for second best! I really enjoy being single. Sometimes people drive me crazy with questions "so, why aren't you married, you say?".I'm not sure what kind of answer they wait for: like "because i'm ugly, stupid and have a really bad character! that's why!" one?:)
I am saying my wedding is next September, so don't plan anything of the firs weekend!

what is the best response to that question, "why aren't you dating someone...?" i got that alot when i was in ukraine...and, am beginning to get it now. how the heck do you respond? anyone have a good response? i think it's a silly question. but, maybe it's meant to be a compliment...b/c...people see how darn cool i am and cannot believe no one else has picked up on it yet. hmmm....i am pretty darn cool. i'd want to spend the rest of my life w/ me....oh...wait....um... HEY...at least i am not making up fake weddings! :P
