We arrived at the wedding/reception already slightly buzzed, which was absolutely hilarious. No one did anything embarrassing or rude, but I did erupt into a fit of laughter when the wedding started and I felt the need to tell my friend, Steve, that the minister was hot. And dudes, he totally was. I mean slammin' hot. My friend couldn't stop laughing, asking why the hell I was telling him. I explained it was because there were no girls I knew anywhere near me, and I really did feel the need to share it with someone. Couldn't... stop... laughing... I realize you had to be there and also had to be slightly intoxicated to see the humor in it, but I can assure you, it was funny.
Once the reception started up, it went downhill from there. Jokes about past boyfriends and girlfriends, my friend Gerard breakdancing and doing the Worm in the middle of the dance floor several times, the groom and his band kicking the house band off-stage so they could sing some kick ass music. (For those of you at the pig roast 2 years ago, it was the lead singer of that band that got married.)
Anyway, it's soooo nice to get out sometimes, have a few drinks (or a lot of drinks in my case), and just laugh with adults. Especially with this particular group of friends. We've been tight for years. Some I've been friends with since kindergarten... some since fifth or sixth grade... and some since high school. Over the years, I married Steve and most of them met and married girls. Surprisingly enough, I like all of the girls, which is rare in and off itself. And although a few of them had a problem in the beginning with their man having a good friend who's a chick, once they got to know me and understood our relationship, all was good.
So anyway, this leads me to my contribution to the Weekly Words Challenge over at Tink's blog, which she took over for the first time this week from OddMix. The words for this week were Change and Color.
This first picture represents change. The changing of our lives and our relationships since we all first met 20+ years ago. And yet, what's cool, is that so, so many things have also remained the same. Awesome. (Steve and I are in the back on the right.) Oh, and some drunk dude took this for us, so it's not the best quality. LOL!
And here is my photo for Color. This was Grace at her soccer clinic on Saturday. She's there in the middle in the orange shirt, to the left of the girl in the yellow #2 shirt. :)
And here are one or two other pictures from the wedding. Just because.
A picture of Steve and my friends. Lovely group, aren't they? LOL!
