We're going to a wedding this afternoon. That should be fun. It will be the boy's first time at a wedding, so they're curious to see what it's about. I noticed Nathan had written "Kissy Kissy Day" on his calendar, which made me laugh. It's for one of Rick's co-workers and is also the same lady that let the girls ride horses on the ranch she was caring for awhile back. It's a shame the girls won't be here, especially with Nichelle missing it by one day. I haven't been to a lot of weddings myself, probably around seven. There were some I've been invited to, but couldn't attend because they were too far away. Of the seven I can think of, four of them are still married. The picture above is of my mom and dad coming out of their wedding. I think they had a pretty simple ceremony, but I love the gown my mom is wearing. I love the scalloped hemline. My dad couldn't look happier -- as always.
Rick and I got married on Valentine's Day in 1988, so we'll be celebrating our 22nd anniversary in a few more months. If you're married, did anything strange happen at your wedding? I've heard some crazy stories about people's weddings, like guests fighting or someone stealing the bride's bouquet. We were lucky and everything went pretty well. We didn't have any America's Funniest Home Video moments. One thing that went wrong was that my sister and I had a hard time tacking up my dress train right before we walked into the reception hall. That took forever, even though we had practiced it before. The only other thing was that we specifically told the DJ not to play "We've Only Just Begun" by the Carpenters. So, after struggling with my train and making our guests wait, Rick and I finally walk into the reception. The DJ introduces us, followed by blasting "We've Only Just Begun" -- idiot. Other than those two things, everything else went well.
How about you -- any bizarre or unique wedding incidents?
