This is not a great start. But at least Andrew is there with you. In sickness and in health.

Yeah it was not a good night and I kick myself that I missed it!

Truth we definitely pushed the limits of that promise...

I'm really happy to hear that he is okay health wise, but that was super scary. Hope your daughter is ok healthwise too, if I read correctly, the pain she was experiencing was a popped cyst? I have to say, before she wrote that, I was thinking "Baby on the way!"

Thank you
Yes we have been together 28 years and this year will be our 25th wedding anniversary.

Yes it was very scary and I am very grateful he's ok

Caitlin is fine too although she ended up dealing with cysts for another 2 months as it came back No baby on the way, thankfully! I hope they wait a couple years as they are still young!




Also, love the bridal shower pic of your daughter, with her Beauty & the beast china, it is beautiful!! So nice that you were able to plan your daughter's shower for her! When I think back to my shower, while it turned out nice, it's sad to me that 2 of the "ladies" in my bridal party did not want to include my mom in the fun plannings of the shower, as I am her only daughter. Never could understand why someone would do that.. Anyhow, enough about my rant that was But just seeing that pic of you and your daughter at her shower, it was very sweet. Seems like you have a special bond with your daughter! I have that with both my mom and my daughter. I'm looking forward to the rest of your report!
Thank you. In my family it is tradition for many generations back that the mom hosts the shower. I loved being able do it and although we kept everything small it was exactly what she wanted

We have a very close relationship which I feel blessed for!

Thanks! Glad to have you along!

I think that is a wonderful tradition to have the mom host it! And keeping it smaller is nice. Well I look forward to hearing more about your trip.. Me and my family have one planned for Easter, and I am so excited!

That and Dexter. Only seen a few, wanna go back and start from the beginning.

Either way, I'm gonna stick around to see what happens next even if it costs me a few more bucks.

Hmm well is there some Lord Voldemort song we can start humming now? I mean I don't think Uni deserves an awesome theme song like Darth Vader anyway

You need to watch it!! Netflix has the entire series.

Now we cue the ominous music..

yes.

trust me.

I know.



Ah you must be the zombie bait? You have two daughters and your wife...hmm I hope your daughters are fast runners That way they won't need to use you as bait for a long time

It was a very rough night..I left out the part where I tried sleeping on the floor in the bathroom and next to it just so I could skip the walk back and forth

Honest? I think I could outrun them... and that's actually not good.

Been there, done that at Disney - not fun at all! Of course, I wasn't getting married the next morning...

Okay, now I'm hoping that the bad drama is behind you!

What better day to post about a wedding than Valentine's day?! Finally the moment you all have been waiting so patiently for!

Last we left off I was getting sick....really sick...in the room. I was feeling horrible but as a true testament to how much I love Andrew I put that all aside to get married. I stayed in bed for a little while longer and let mom and grandpa get ready and finally got up and started to get myself together. I took my hourly dose of Tylenol and started on my hair and make up.

The original plan for our wedding was getting a pontoon boat from the Grand Floridian and having our wedding in the lake in front of the Magic Kingdom but with my stomach issues we weren't sure how my body would react to the waves and a moving boat. This morning we were scrambling for places to get married when we remembered that there was a little pavilion just around the corner from our room.


It was quiet and convenient so after a call to Andrew and dad we were all set to meet there. Well the boys came to the room first so there was no dramatic Bride entrance but seeing my future husband was pretty exciting. We were glowing from all of the excitement and headed to the pavilion.


There was a lone CM working in the garden area and I am pretty sure she knew what we were doing but just left us to it and the next time we saw someone wasn't until after we were married.


We took our places at the spur of the moment alter and my dad performed the ceremony.


It was gorgeous and very serene and quiet. The location couldn't have been more perfect and the early morning light was gorgeous.


Once the ceremony was done we realized the camera didn't have an sd card in it So these are our staged ceremony pictures.







After my grandpa led us in prayer we had a photo shoot around the area.











Then we headed to breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe.



























My dad said a toast to our marriage and I love the look on Andrew's face in this picture.




Andrew and I had bellinis so for a while I was feeling a lot better!

For breakfast dad had



Eggs Benedict - Two Poached Eggs on a Toasted English Muffin, Canadian Bacon, and Hollandaise Sauce served with Asparagus $10.99

I had



You are never too sick for a Mickey waffle!

Andrew had



Maple Vanilla French Toast - Challah Bread dipped in Maple and Vanilla flavored Batter with Bacon or Sausage $11.99




After our breakfast we had another photo shoot.






















Then I started feeling sick again and decided to head back to the room.




I had a great wedding. I got to wear Toms and be comfortable rather than wearing a some huge dress and heels. Andrew and I chose to elope because of the family issues he was having and although this definitely didn't solve anything this wedding was more "us". It was with the people we loved in a place that I love and he fell in love with. We can always go visit where we got married and we made wonderful memories on this trip. I always wanted a wedding that was about me and the person I was with and the covenant we were making with God and this wedding included all of that. We really got to make our bond together rather than put on a show for others. Not saying all big weddings are like that but with the demands the family was making I felt more like I was trying to please them then do anything I wanted to do. I also was lucky to get both this wedding and a blessing at my church where I got to wear the big poofy dress and have my other family members be there so I truly got the best of both worlds. My dream since i was 12 was to be married in Disney and marrying Andrew in Disney made all my dreams come true.



Happy Valetine's Day!
