The wedding was beautiful and fun. The readings were beautiful, the sermon was really nice and personalized to them and then they walked out to Hooked on a Feeling -- the one that starts with oooga chocka. It was fun and left everyone smiling. Some of the bridesmaids and groomsmen danced out together and some didn't. The last 2 did a cute little pantomime where he pretended to ask her and she said no. It was adorable. The wedding was delayed for a few minutes because of a little bit of rain, but then it stopped, we dried the chairs off and started the wedding. It was great. My daughter caught the bouquet and youngest son was the best man -- but he didn't find out that he was until the rehearsal!
Speaking of the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner went well. We had too much food. After looking amounts up on line and making too much food for the shower, I, instead asked everyone I knew and we came up with the amounts from local, experienced cooks. We still had too much food. My family has been eating barbecued pork loin for 5 days. Basically, they ate 2/3 of the food that I brought, so we must have had enough to feed 100, instead of the 60-ish people that we were trying to plan for. I'd rather have too much than too little, but we are all really tired of barbecued pork.
We came back to real life really quickly when we walked in the door here at home and found out that our roof leaked and our laundry room ceiling had collapsed. I have been cleaning and doing laundry since Monday night since we use our laundry room as a family closet and all of our clothes and linens are stored in there.
So anyway, here we are post-wedding, feeling kind of let down and kind of thinking 'what do we do now?" Probably we need to something like declare a no spending month, clean the house thoroughly and go on a diet!
I'll catch you all up on what else we've been up to next time I post. Have a great day!
