This morning, I got up and got a shower, got dressed, and went to TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I needed to find shoes for this wedding today. I found a cute pair of light pink heels. They are Jessica Simpson brand, and they were only $30.00, sold. I bought them, and then went home to get ready for the wedding. Drew was home from the chiropractor by the time I got home. I told him he didn’t have to go to the ceremony, but he had to go to the reception. He said, deal. He was tired and worn out from last night and taking care of me. When I went upstairs, I got dressed for the wedding, and went to my parents to spend some time with them and see my dogs. I laid on the couch until it was time to go to the ceremony.
When we arrived at the church, it was nice to be in the same church where I got married. The ceremony was nice. The bride looked beautiful. I really hope they make it considering their history.
After the ceremony, we all went out front and blew bubbles for the bride and groom. At one point, Lisa’s veil was caught on the front steps, and it was pulling her back. her bridesmaids stepped to help. Celeste said, “oh it’s the veil, I made you wear.” Greg said, “See Celeste this the last time you are going to tell us to do something. We are going to tell you no.” Celeste looks back at me and my mom and then says to Greg, “You got that wrong!” My mom and I laughed.
After the ceremony, I went back to my parents, and I passed out on the couch. Drew was standing over me and woke me up. I didn’t even hear him come in. I sat up and looked around. I was so hung over, but feeling better. he and I left in my car to go to the cocktail hour. It was from 5pm-6pm. My parents were going to meet us there.
When we arrived at the cocktail hour, I introduced him to some people I know. There was a lot of cheek kissing and handshaking. I decided to have one beer for the sake of the cocktail hour. I was feeling so much better, but I was excited to go home and go to bed. I kept on noticing a familiar woman. She looked like the mother of a kid I went to grade school with. She and I kept making eye contact. Our tables were close to each other. She approached me and said, I thought that was you! She gave me a hug. I sad, “I thought the same thing!” She laughed. She said, “Oh my God, wait until Larry sees you. He is going to die.” I haven’t seen Larry since I was 14.
As dinner got underway, we ate our salad and mingled with people at our table. I turned to look behind me and I saw Larry sitting there with a boy. I smiled at him and waved. he smiled and waved. I got up and went over to the table. I hugged him and he hugged me back. His mom took a picture of us. She said, I know I have a picture of you two when you were little somewhere. You two will have to get together. I smiled and we both agreed. We were going to catch up after we ate. It is so weird how people come in and out of your life when you least expect it.
When we left the wedding, it was around 10pm. We were ready to go home. When we got home, we immediately went to bed.
