I have been trying to figure out how to do this.. what do I say.. tell it all.. or just get to the main points... I guess I will start writing and see how it goes......
Tuesday July 9th:
the day was very busy. We decided to split up and FI dropped off our son at his brothers house, while I dropped off our dog to the doggie spa and then my daughter decided to treat me to a mani/pedi. Decides on Shellac which turned out so nice (and still look good). After we were done.. I still had some wedding items I needed to ship. We go to the UPS store and the lady tells me that to ship a 6lb package to arrive by Friday would be 110.00. I looked at her like "WHAT!!!" ummmm yeah... that's not happening. Thank You and Good-Bye. Decided to pack those things in an extra suitcase and that's the end of that. Daughter dropped off at my parents.. my dad dropped us off at the airport.. everything went smoothly. . Arrived in Vegas and yeah... it was 103 degrees at 10pm.. walked out the airport doors and it was like my breath was taken away. We get to the hotel... yayyy AIR!! .. Check in after a few issues.. but all is good.. they upgraded our room.. sooo I was very happy. We go out to eat at the sugar factory ( this was where we had PLANNED to have our meet and greet). Very nice.. but price was more than I expected. Salad, burger and 2 martinis...74.00 not including tip.
Sooo.. looked around and found a better place.. finally went to bed around 3am pst.. soo technically 7am est.
Limo picked us up to go to the marriage bureau to pick up our license.. then onto the chapel for a tour and details about the ceremony. . Everything went great and they also gave me a rose to say Congrats..
The rest of the day involved running around. Kind of a blur right now.
Started the day early running around dropping off my dress to fit for a bride for steaming. . And to my surprise they say I can pick it up in 5hrs... shocked.. but felt good about it.. in the meantime more running around..
picked up dress.. ran back to the hotel to get ready for the meet and greet.. I knew that mostly everybody had arrived Wednesday and Thursday, I had some SPECIAL women attending.. I text to see what room they're in.. and to my surprise theyre 3 doors down from me... soo just when im about to leave out of my door to sneak over and say HEY... who do I hear and run into in the hallway... FOOTBALLWIFE!!!! YUP!!! and then who do I see our friend Al annnndddd SULTRY!!! HUGS ALL OVA THE PLACE!!
OK.. get ready for the night we meet at PBR(professional bullriding) rock bar and grill... fun had by ALL.. and yea.. there was some bullriding..
after all that it was time for men and women to separate and have Vegas Fun... and at this time I got another surprise.. Case!!!! (Louisianalove) arrived!!! She is soooo gorgeous in person!!
Friday 7/12: this has been a long post.. soooo sorry
Friday. . I still had running around to do.. got that done.. my hair got styled and then it was time to get ready...
I finally realized I had been running sooo much I havent had any time for ME.... I knew at this point I wasn't going to have any time.. bridal party arrived to my room photographer arrived. . Then the make up artist arrived.. all I remember is she said she couldn't wait to play with my eyes.. "I hope that doesnt sound wierd". She said she had never seen such big beautiful eyes.. all I could say was.. "they're just eyes".. well she did her thing.. blah blah blah.. pics were taken..and we got outta there..lol
everyone kept asking me if I was excited. . And I kept saying.. its just Terrell. .lol.. well when we were in the lobby and I turned to see him for our first look. .. THAT'S when it was REAL..
onto the Chapel and this is when it got exciting. . I dont have to recap the ceremony since I hope you all have watched it!!!!!!
Onto the reception... initially thought 50 people.. ended up 23 people.. very nice and it was all the family and friends that we TOTALLY LOVE!! my DJ was great.. he had my PINK up lighting. . You can never go wrong pink!!
And I felt soooooo SPECIAL when I got my phone back and I had sooo many texts about people watching the ceremony... THAT TEARED ME UP!!
I know ive missed some things.. BUT.. this I know is REALLY LONG!!
ANDDD.... got a call informing me that my son got accepted into college!! Best wedding present EVER!!
