A Ruracio, friendship and wonderful memories

I love re-watching past movies and/or series that I consider especially those in which my favorite actors and actresses starred in. Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway are some of my favorite actresses. I first loved Hudson after watching “How to lose a guy in 10 days” with Mathew McConaughey and Hathaway in “The Princess Diaries“.

Yeah, yeah, go ahead and judge but say what you will, these were awesome movies. 🙂

Anyway, there I was curled up in bed on Thursday under the weather, shivering and aching watching “Bride Wars“. I had also watched Wonder Woman the week before so I was determined not to let some flu get me down. I was an Amazon from Themyscira damn it, or so I thought.

Turns out, I had an infection in my chest that the doc told me when I went to hospital (in my pajamas by the way…head scarf and all) was airborne. I remember how far we’ve come in our friendship and how soon she’ll be married and part of me feels like I’m losing her but on the other hand I’m super excited for her.

One time she came over to my place for a sleep over and we were chatting as we watched a movie. I’ll never forget how she was in the middle of a juicy story when she realized I had dozed off and I didn’t live that down for a while. Every time it came up afterwards, she’d roll her eyes at me. 🙂  Sigh…I’m missing her already.

Anyway, this past May I had the honor of working with her as she planned for her traditional wedding, what most people call Ruracio. It so happened that her big day was on the same day as my French exam at Alliance Française and I had to be there by 7am, while the function was set to start at 8am.

Thankfully, we were able make it work and while I was not able to attend because my exam ran long, her ruracio was a resounding success and everyone loved her makeup as did she! 🙂
