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!

~deb,
The 'ex-football player frat boy types' were obviously there looking for Drunk, lonely bridesmaids. Everybody knows how easy they are (I think it has something to do with being in someone's wedding & thinking you'll never get one) and didn't the 'ex-football player frat boy types' look like just the type that would take advantage of the round heelers.
Happy vacation (go ahead & buy the T-shirt, you'll only regret it if you don't.)
happy blogging & immoral thoughts from:
Bert

Heather said...

Hope you have a wonderful time!!!

luckysevn said...

I couldn't believe you went there with the Jennifer Wilbanks comment!!! That's EXACTLY what was going throught my head!

Have a fantastic vacation - hope you found some fun clothes to wear!

Can't wait to see what Dani has to say...

Natalia said...

It looks like such a good time... wohoo for you and getting to see old friends.

Dani ON your blog... interesting...you are far more benevolent than I could ever be to her.

normiekins said...

have a wonderful vacation deb!!!

gorgeous pictures of you!!!!

Fred said...

Great pics, Deb. Hope you have a great vacation!

CP said...

Glad you had such an amazing time at the wedding! It was more like a high school reunion!

Enjoy your vacation. You need it, girl!

And as far as Dani goes, I've said it before...I'll say it again. I like the girl. I don't like her beliefs. I don't care for her politics. But, I love her balls. I love the brazen "this is me, if you don't like it, fuck you" attitude and I really love the fact that she is stoic in her beliefs. Very few people are that devoted to their convictions. So, while I don't agree with her, I do respect her opinions.

I told her if we ever met in a playground with our kids...I'd probably think she was the greatest girl ever! Super cool.

And then...she's get religious on me, and the love affair would end.

But I like her...and I LOVE you, and I think you are an amazing woman for allowing her to share the conviction you both have, albeit on different ends of the spectrum.

That's what makes Deb, Deb. This is why I love, worship and adore you. *hugs/kiss*

CP.

When I graduated high school I was so quick to say sayonara to almost all my classmates. Now I wonder where they are and what they're doing. I would love to see folks again like you were able to. Wedding looks like it was a blast.

nettie said...

I love weddings, as long as they're not my own. :P

Good for you, making friends with Dani. With God, all things are possible.
