Most of the time, I have no idea what I'm going to write about when I sit down with the laptop and begin a blog post. Oh, I might have a few things I want to mention but usually I'm flying by the seat of my pants. Today is no exception.
I'll begin with the weekend. We went to a wedding Saturday in the Big Town. It was a very warm day. The bride was beautiful and the park setting was just right for the couple. The wedding was at 3 pm and the reception started with the cocktail hour at 5 pm followed by dinner and dancing. There must have been 200 or so at the reception which was held in a large banquet hall.
Both of my SIL's were at the wedding and we were saying that the time we spent pressing clothes and getting ready lasted longer than the ceremony. ☺
Speaking of clothes, I saw everything from jeans to cocktail dresses. I wore black pants with a royal blue silky top and black sandals plus a black shoulder bag. Jewelry was silver hoops and a silver necklace with multi-colored jewels. BG wore a gray shirt with black pants. We took his tie along but hardly any of the men wore one so it (the tie) stayed in the car.
The little ring bearer got too scared to walk down the aisle, so his father, who is the brother of the bride, picked him up and carried him. He then handed the ring over to the pastor who passed it on to the best man. The pastor had a cute sense of humor and made us all laugh a few times.
The bride's dress was beautiful and the first photo is of her and her dad, the middle photo is the bride and groom and I blurred their faces as I don't like to show faces unless I have permission. The third photo is BG and moi. I was so aggravated that day as I couldn't do a thing with my hair. On top of that, it was windy so I sprayed it good and that, of course, flattens it down. Oh well.
We had a great time and we had lots of good food to eat at the wedding dinner. I'll confess now that I didn't think about my blood sugar levels when I was eating and even had a piece of wedding cake.
My SIL and I didn't think we were going to get wedding cake because it was a long drawn out affair with dinner and some dancing before the cutting of the cake at 8 pm. All the while, we were watching the weather on radar on my phone. We had a big rain complete with red cells and a tornado watch on the way to our area, but we finally got to eat cake and left for home before it got too bad.
I talked a few minutes with the bride's mother before we left. She was savoring every minute of her daughter's special day and enjoying seeing so many of their family and friends. BG and I also enjoyed seeing several people that we only see these days at special occasions.
It seems like folks don't visit anymore like they used to do. I wonder why that is? It's really kind of sad that people don't get together except for weddings and funerals, I think.
Well, this post has gone on far longer than I meant for it to. Even though I didn't have a post planned out, I still meant to write about more than a wedding.
I have things I need to be working on in the house, but as I told a blog friend, I'd rather get out and enjoy Mother Nature's fall decor. The house work will always be there, autumn won't. So, a little day-tripping is in order today. Enjoy your day, too.
Happy Wednesday to you!
