Bridesmaid/Junior Bridesmaid

So, obviously it's been a long while, almost a month, since my last post.
I would totally understand if you're ready to be done following or reading my jargon's.
It's unacceptable and it won't happen least I hope not.
So, what have I been up to?
I've had a little wedding talk, introduced most of my bridesmaids (the last couple are next) and almost two weeks ago, Matthew and I got married!
I'll do an entire recap on that whole weekend soon, I promise!
For now, here is a sneak peak at a few pictures ;) The day could not have gone better.
Seriously. It was perfect!! I had so much fun and that is exactly what i wanted ;)
But, right now I need to tell you about my last two bridesmaid/junior bridesmaid!!

Becky has been in my life since I was born. My parents moved in right next door to her family in Wisconsin.
Apparently, we hit it off right away!
(SOOO many stories on this front lol But my parents may kill me if I share too many)
Becky's parent's quickly became great friends with my parents and after I was born, they became my Godparents!
God could not have blessed me with a better family to call my own.
After just 2 years there, my family moved, but it didn't change our friendships and family feel for each other.
Becky is their oldest and she is one of the most beautiful and strongest people I have ever met.
She's been through a lot and still keeps her head high and a smile on her face always.
She puts everyone first and will bend over backwards for those that she loves.
She can make a friend wherever she goes and I was lucky enough to stand up with her on her wedding day :)
We've always been pretty close and I love that I have her in my life.
She's another sister to me and has been there for me through everything.
I can talk to her about anything and she is always there with advice and support no matter what I do.
Her heart is just amazing and not only that, but she's ridiculously funny!
Not a time goes by when I'm not laughing with her!
She is just such a special person; words could never describe.
You have to meet her to fully understand how amazing she is.
About seven and a half years ago, her and her husband Rob(I could do a whole post on how awesome he is, but we'll save that for the right time) were blessed with twins :)
Ben and Sydney were born on December 1st and I remember holding them when they were just days old.

Guys...I have never in my life met more mature, polite, SMART, funny, WELL-BEHAVED children.....EVER. I mean at 5 they are like little adults!
and as they get older they just get better!
Of course they still have their moments, they are KIDS after all lol, but they listen and they respect everyone around them. I definitely look up to Becky and Rob on the parenting front. As twins they are so much alike yet so different and that is awesome.
Sydney loves to be in the center of the action, while Ben is OK to be a little quieter and gets burned out quicker(he was half asleep at the reception! hehe) and you could take them anywhere at any age and they are so good!
I've been amazed by these kids from day one.

Sydney is the spitting image of her mother at her age and Ben is exactly Rob.
Every time I see them I am amazed at how they are growing and how far they've come.
They are going to make a huge difference in this world and I am excited to be a part of that.
I remember thinking, and probably saying, that unless my sister had a little girl first, Sydney was already reserved to be in my wedding ;) Luckily Chels has Lucas and it worked out perfectly!!
I'm so glad she was excited to be a Junior bridesmaid and I couldn't be happier that both her and her mom got to walk down and stand by my side as I started a new chapter of my life.

They have such a huge influence on me and I just wish we lived closer to spend more time together.
It was so nice having them there :) I am one lucky girl! For many, many reasons!
