Hey I'm Back

Looks like my last post actually showed up on Blotanical. That's nice. I was feeling all lonely without all the other blogs that went missing with me. Glad things look like they are working again.

The wedding was beautiful. Now might be a good time to explain my best friend AKA the mother of the bride. We have known each other since junior high school. She had her family early, I had mine late, then she had a late child followed by a couple of grandchildren. She is a really young grandmother. She is Meme to my boys, and I am Aunt Debbi to her crew and grand crew. She is the kind of woman that believes she can do everything.

For this wedding, she made all of the food, all of the decorations, and finally cried "uncle" when she started to try to make the cake. I think her MIL finally talked some sense into her and they hired a baker. Just before the wedding, we finally had to force her to stop messing with food and stuff and go get dressed. Soon after that, she got a good look at her beautiful daughter, and she didn't see anything else for the rest of the night.

Kristann, the bride, wore her mother's gown. The ceremony was held under a gazebo. The weather was beautiful and the flowers were lovely. The bride's maids (sisters, one an identical twin of the bride) were perfect. The reception started just at dusk. There were candles and twinkle lights on a deck outside. The father of the bride was embarrassed during the father/daughter dance. The DJ saved him by fading out the song early and starting the next song.

Everything went beautifully. There was not a single wedding disaster. Now our girl is married and on her way.

Oh yeah, there was a groom and he looked really good and did exactly what he was told to do. Good job T.


  1. It sounds wonderful! It's always wonderful when old friends can stay in each other's lives like that. I wish I could, but I live far from my friends. Our kids meet occassioanlly but not often enough to really consider anyone family. Your friend sounds like she's a bit like me. We did it all for my wedding too (except for the cake and photography).

  2. What a lovely wedding! I loved the last line; glad to know there was a groom! haha
    What happened to your blog? Did you go missing without me noticing? That's not possible! Anyway, glad things are working again!

  3. Okay, I'm in tears now (sentimentalist, what can I say?). It sounds just perfect.---Silence

  4. Well, that's okay. We all know there is a groom there. Just like there has to be "a daddy" in the equation. He just isn't the star of the show! I'm so glad it went well. Weddings seem to be in the air right now. My daughters are long married off. So then you shift into either "grandma of grandkids" or "grandma of pets" mode!

  5. Hi Cinj, I am very luck to have such a great friend.

    Nola, Blotanical has been having feed problems for a few weeks. It has happened before, so I don't worry about it too much.

    Don't cry Silence, what am I saying I cried like a baby.

    Hi brenda, with three boys i don't get to be mother of the bride in this lifetime. Luckily I have a lot of nieces and sisters so I have had a lot of wedding planning fun.

  6. So glad everything went perfectly. Now all can sit back & get some R&R which is well deserved.
    Congrats to the lovely couple.

  7. Lots of happy moments on this post!
    Life is good holding special moments near ;)

  8. Thanks lola, we are taking it easy today.

    Thanks Joey.

  9. I had to laugh about the groom. Just think, one day your sons will be grooms too! It's the easier of the two jobs by the moms.

  10. Hi Anna, Sorry the gal in the big white dress gets to be the star.
