30 years ago Today!

Boy do we look like a couple of kids or what! 30 years ago Paul & I stood up before our friends and family, promising to Love, Honor and Cherish all the days of our lives. Well we are still hanging in there thru the thick and the thin :)

The most amazing part of all of this is that Paul has put up with me for this long!! lol Even more amazing is he still LOVES me! Yes I tell ya the man is simply amazing! What can I say, I totally love the guy :)

A few Funny things I remember from my wedding day:

Forgetting to buy a 'guest' book, ok so it was not so funny at the time but oh Good Heavens! Not so much of a big deal in the whole scheme of things. How often have you looked at your guest book????

Paul's cousin Kimmie telling me she hated me cause she was going to marry Paul. Yes she also had a grin on her face and she is younger than I am by at least 5 years so she was probably only 14 or 15 at the time. I still razz her about that one.

My cousin Randy who is 5 years older than I am coming thru the reception line with a huge grin on his face and saying "you little Shit" to me. We both laughed, I guess I still seemed like the little tag along to him! (I always wanted to do whatever my brother Rocky and my cousin Randy were doing)

My Mom telling me not to smash cake in Paul's face. Ok so I had not EVEN THOUGHT of that! lol so I was pretty good, just got a little on his mustache. But did you see that mustache, ok at the time it was TOTALLY COOL but now to look at it, sort of seems HUGE.


When we left the church my brother and Paul's brother jumped into each of their Parents cars to try and chase us down the main street. Well they were both in a hurry and one pulled out without looking and ended up putting a bit of a 'crunch' in the door of the other car!

Ok so maybe I have a weird sense of humor but all these things sort of make me chuckle now! We are headed to one of our favorite places for dinner tonight and I am not even thinking about being 'Good' during dinner!
