I Caught the Bouquet... Again.

I went to a wedding this past weekend. My favorite cousin tied the knot in Dallas. It was a beautiful wedding. The ceremony was outside at the Dallas Arboretum. The reception was indoors at a restaurant. Of course we did the typical bouquet toss... now here is where it gets dicey.
In March of 2008 I was a bridesmaid in my friend Nicole's wedding. Nicole also did a bouquet toss. I stood in the back. Nicole tossed the bouquet... it hit me in the face. No joke. Her bouquet hit me square in the face. This is what we shall refer to as "Toss 1"

Again in March 2008 I was a bridesmaid. A few weeks after Nicole's wedding I was in Annie's wedding. Let's take a look at the montage:

I'm on the left. My hands are touching.

Look at all the other girls, they are ready to strike, hands up in the air...

The bouquet is tossed! Look at everyone leap for it... everyone expect me. My hands are still touching, in a clapping motion... A couple bounces and...

Yep. That's me with the bouquet. It bounced off 5 sets of hands and landed right in mine.

Let's call this "Toss 2"

So, now let's fast forward to Jackie's wedding this past weekend. We gathered on the dance floor... only this time my sister was there. My 19 year old sister. There was no way I was letting her catch that bouquet. I also knew she was my only competition. All the other girls were tiny Koreans (Jackie's husband is half Korean). I knew I could take them. Tiffany (my sister) and I battled for it... but, I have a good 6 inches on her. My jump was higher and voila. I caught the bouquet... again.

I think the wedding God's might be mocking me at this point, but that's okay. I have a nice little dried flowers collection going.

Love, Tina Marie
