I am getting to old for this sh*t. But I must say it was a WONDERFUL, relaxing weekend once everything started.
First a big thanks to my Mom and Dad who came down Saturday to watch my kids. They are fabulous and the kids enjoyed their time with Mimi and Pappy. Some things though I must apologize for:
1. Hubby locking you out of the house. I reminded him but it is habit.
2. You having to drive 8 miles out of your way to get to a Burger King. The GPS can be dumb lol
3. Not having any food in my house for you to eat.
4. Not laying towels out for you, but I knew you would find them...you did help me move in and been there a million times.
5. Not having more comfortable beds for you to sleep in.
6. The garage door waking you at 1:30 in the morning.
7. The food taking so long at Bob Evans Sunday morning.
8. And me not having things ready when I left Saturday morning.
But thank you. Thank you for being there so I could relax. :)
Friday, I went to get my nails done. The 3 girls tagged along and the dum dums worked wonderfully!! The guys got me suckered into getting the girls nails done as well, so Emily, one I babysit, and my daughter, Syd got their nails done. Now, this was Syd's first manicure and I must say...she loved it a little too much!! They charged me a freaking HUGE amount for the girls (Mind you...they are 2 1/2 and 4) . $13!! a GIRL. Needless to say, I cancelled my pedicure, because they enjoyed getting theirs done more than I would with strangers touching my feet.
The wedding rehearsal was fabulous. The food was great and the fun started that night at the hotel...but we had to get home b/c my girl Amy, took my kids for me for the evening which left her with 6 kids!!! She is wonderful and I will pay her back with my services.
Saturday morning, a sweet friend, Teri, did all the bridemaids' hair. I got to the hotel at 9 am and the morning began. We were done up, ate good food, hung out with the bride, got our dresses steamed, and waited for the time to put it all together. By 2:30 we started to get dressed, makeup done, and got the bride ready. I was in charge of lacing!! :) She looked beautiful. We took some pictures and jumped in the nicest limo I have ever been in and rode to the church.
By 5:30, we were walking down the aisle and witnessing a marriage commitment of 2 people. It was perfect. Everything went smoothly and beautifully.
The reception was a hit. They had a heart touching slideshow of pictures at the start of the reception. I was in tears most of the night.
I sit and think about the marriage Shane and I have...going on 9 years in June and the future of my son and daughter. Your thoughts change as you get older when you go to weddings.
Attending weddings is good for the marriage. :) As you will see...the reception was fun too. Hubby was crazy funny and we had a good time. I just love slow dancing with him. I miss that.
