Mazel Tov!

How cute are they? Maria and Chris had a wonderful day last Saturday, May 20th. I was so happy to be there to celebrate their union. I'm so glad Maria found a terrific guy who treats well. She deserves that.

Yep, that’s me and the runaway bride. She decided to get married after all. (Sorry Maria, had to put that picture up there---the resemblance is uncanny, isn't it? I still think you're prettier than Jennifer Wilbanks though!)

The wedding was a blast and the after party was just as good. I was just so thrilled to see my girl get married. She’s finally happy and it shows.
There were many interesting moments that I have to keep to myself. Although I would love to share these unique stories, I have to keep my big fat mouth shut due to respect and…umm…that some of these people now have my blog address. Lips are sealed! I will say one thing—I have never seen so much fun and laughter, as well as drama and turmoil in one night.

I can mention the bathroom situation though. Yes, it was clean, however, at the end of the night, there were vodka and tonics sitting on the toilet bowl with diluted iced cubes, toilet paper sprawled out all over the floor and plenty of women crammed into one stall doing God knows what.

I’m happy to report I got my butt pinched by a cute girl. I also slow danced with another girl I didn’t know at the after party. (Madelene knew these girls had their beer goggles on as well as their ‘experimental treat ya like a guinea pig’ type of closet bi-sexual groove on.) I was asked out numerous times by 'ex-football player frat boy types' who were too drunk to even stand. Lovely. I think they were strays. Who knows.

There were people there that I haven’t seen in years; people from my high school. I was a bit nervous to see them all—but when I did see them, it was like as if we never parted. I’ve actually made plans with all of them, and happy to say they’re back in my lives again.
This is my friend Steph that I haven't seen since I was eighteen years old. We used to hang out all the time and hang out at the same bar at least three or four times per week. Fake ids are great! Steph had many, many men after her that evening. Sometimes things just never change!This is my friend Bill. I met him when I was sixteen years old. We would always hang out partying in his huge basement listening to classic rock, playing guitar and betting on tequila shots with many games of pool. This is my old buddy Patty and her boyfriend. I've known her since I was fifteen years old. Every morning before school we would smoke a joint and giggle our way through the day. I had so many memories with this girl that it's unreal. Whenever we get together it's nonstop laughter. She's a wonderful person and I'm glad that we are back in touch.

Now that the party has ended and Maria and her husband Chris are basking in the Jamaica sun—I’m off to go on a vacation myself. I will be away for a full week starting tomorrow and I’ll be back with many disturbing pictures, as well as some fun stories to share.

See you soon...


WARNING: When I come back from vacation, I will have a very special guest blogger writing a post on my blog. You all know her as Dani from Generation X-Pose. She's going to give her input and how the both of us came together to discuss our differences in our beliefs of Christianity. Come back next week to check it out--it should be very interesting. It'll be fun to see how God works through two Christians who have completely different viewpoints. Thanks Dani!
