~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
First, I want to say that I have been MIA because we just got back from our mini-moon:) We went to Chicago, IL! The most exciting news is that we have FINALLY booked our honeymoon in Maui!!!!!!!!! I'm just too darn excited :):) I'll have to write another post about our mini-moon though!
I left off last time with the touching speech of my bridesmaid and now it is time for the MOH speech who is also my lil sis! So, here it is:
"When I was little, I always wanted to be just like Mindy. I would follow her around, want to play with her and her friends, and be just like Mindy. I remember at one time Mindy and I had the same tennis shoes and the same winter coats. I thought I was the coolest kid riding the bus looking just like my older sister. Even though Mindy would get annoyed with me, she would always stick up for me and not say too much about me always tagging along. Mindy was and still is a great older sister and I have always looked up to her. As we grew older, I became less annoying to her (at least I think I did), and we are now best friends. I am proud that she is my sister and am happy that she found someone she will spend the rest of her life with.
I remember back when Mindy was in high school, she always said that she would never date a hick. A hick at our school, was a farm kid that owned a truck and usually chewed and drank alcohol, sat in the school parking lot in their trucks and revved up the engines to see who’s truck was the loudest. Now look at her, she’s with Eric, a small town guy that loves combining, John Deere, and owns a truck. Mindy found out that sometimes the best guys are the good ol’ country boys.
The first time I met Eric, I wasn’t sure how he’d fit into the family, but once I found out that he likes to drink beer and he likes racing, I knew it wasn’t going to be a problem and he would fit right in.
Congratulations Mindy and Eric, and I hope you will have many years of happiness. "
I of course cried after this speech, I just couldn't help it! It was funny, and touching at the same time:) Are you guys looking forward to listening to other speeches that are given?
After that my husband and I gave our speeches thanking everyone in the wedding party, family, friends and of course each other:)
Next, part of the night consisted of TONS of pictures in our DIY photo booth:) If you are debating about doing one of these you should DEFINITELY do it!!!!! I didn't know for sure if we should do it just because my husband was a little unsure about the whole idea, but you know how guys are! I decided to do it in the end because the reception hall provided a backdrop and everything free of charge! We just provided the props which I borrowed from others too! I have to say it was a BLAST!!! I just started pulling people in there and there were SOOO many pictures taken:) Alot of them were priceless and just hilarious, you'll see for yourself!!!
Our first couple dances of the night were so special and so much fun:) My husbnad and I first started off the night of dancing with "It's Your Love" :) So glad we did this one, very nice song and reminds us of each other! Then it was onto the father/daughter dance. I must say this song makes me cry every time because it describes my dad and my relationship! This was the only song I cried to probably because I am a daddy's girl:) Then it was mother son dance:) Last, but not least, wedding party dance and we decided to go for a slow song because husband thought it would work better..... and it did:)
Next up, bouquet toss and dancing the night away!!!!
Hope you enjoy the pics:)
