Show Me Saturday

Today I decided to play along with my blog buddy Renee at Renee's Ramblings. Click her link and go check her out.

Renee's Ramblings

Her follow me today is Disasters. hmmm. She said it could be anything. The only disaster that keeps coming to mind, is my wedding day. No, getting married wasn't a disaster, but happenings afterwards, well, yeah.

We got married in Vegas. My parents weren't real happy with my choice of husband, so we decided to just go to Vegas to get married. My older sister and her husband lived there so they were our witnesses. My BIL got tickets to Siegfried and Roy that night. (awesome, awesome show).

Anywho, we got married at 1:00 PM. In the Silver Bells Wedding Chapel. Me, in my aforementioned yellow dress, and that fine looking yellow hat. Geez, what a dork. Yeah, and he's looking at the wedding license like, "omg, I just got married". (insert the du-du-du music here).

We went to the Hilton Hotel and were hanging around until the show. I have to say, hubby went directly into shock when we got married. Didn't talk, didn't want to do anything. Yeah, it was fun. So we started getting ready for the show, did our bathroom duties, and du-du-du, toilet overflowed. On my wedding day. I was so embarrassed. And yeah, it was the poop kind of overflow. WTF. We hurried and called housekeeping and ran out the door. Yikes, that was a disaster. I do have to say tho, my BIL got us great seats at the show. Right up front. Next to the stage. And of course, it was one of the topless shows, so, if hubby and BIL wanted to, they could have reached right up and touched said dancers. Needless the say, the shock of getting married ended at that show. :)

A week later we had an open house. OMG, when I was going through these photo's that I haven't seen in a long time, I just realized what a hottie my hubby was. (And still is)

And Renee, my dad made our cake, and it fell over while he was decorating it. :) I was not a happy camper, but looking back, it was kind of funny.


  1. Thanks for joining in Show Me Saturday! Ahhhh finally I get to see pictures of the famous yellow dress! Such a fox you were, your hubby wasn't bad either. :)

    Ewww about the pooh. That would totally suck!

    Im glad to hear I'm not the only one with a cake disaster. Do you have a picture of this cake?

  2. I love your wedding pics!!!! So cute!

  3. I have a cake picture somewhere. I'll see what I can do.

  4. I think your yellow dress is beautiful. And I love the hat. And you got to see Siegried and Roy. Nobody gets to do that anymore. A piece of history. Did they have their white tigers?

  5. I think it's fantastically romantic that you got married in Vegas. My MIL got married there, too, and then had an open house for the fam, when they got back. I love it.
    If I could get hubs on a plane, I'd so hit up the chapel and at least get a pic of us in front of it, for my make-believe album. :)

  6. I love your dress. I do.

    And yes, your hubs was a real cutie.

    I love Vegas weddings. I think they're the ultimate in impulsive and romantic. Trust me, I had a huge wedding with tons of stress and even though the day was beautiful, the months leading up to it were not. Going to Vegas is just about the two of you and that's what it ultimately should be about.

  7. Loved the photo's, especially the one of you two eating cake! My husband had a similar look on his face too when we got married :)

    Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier, it's always good to meet new people!

  8. I love your dress! I rememeber sneaking into your closet when I was little, taking it out to look at it! :)
    Dad looks exactly the same as he did back then-he doesn't age at all!
    I never knew Grandpa made your cake! I think that is really sweet!

  9. How awesome(not the overflow), and the two of you are still together...priceless.
