Fun Monday, High on Life

Mariposa has stepped up again to host our Fun Monday this week!

High moments...in our lives! If you could share to us 3-5 high moments in
your lives...this could be funny moments...the you can't believe you did it
moments...the "I told you so" moments...or the times we asked the ground to go
open and eat us moments! You need not write a book to explain them, the
highlights will do.



Wow, this is kind of tough.

My wedding had a lot of those funny moments. Both DDS and I caught some sort of stomach bug the night before, and in two different locations we both started praying to the porcelain god at 4 am. Our wedding took place at 4 pm. We were feeling better by then, but weak. I made arrangements for someone to have some candy to give me in case I felt faint. Less than 5 minutes into the ceremony, I felt faint. No one would hand me the candy. They brought me a folding chair, a program, a wet cloth. My husband and best man brought the unity candle to me. It was like a comedy...all I could do was laugh. We even had to sit on a piano bench for our receiving line. Everyone thought we were just nervous, but really, we were sick.

That's all I have at the moment. I'll come back to edit if I think of more.

I probably would have thought as the others. Thing is, you got through a most important day in your life. Great read.

My Monday post is published. Stop by if you can, I'd love to have you join me today. But, you'll need to scroll down below the Ranch Hand Breakfast photos to get to my High Moments!! Happy day to you.

A brides worse nightmare... so awful.
(I wonder if you passed it on to the reception line?)

My wedding was full of those moments as well. As long as I was married to the man I love by the end of the day, the rest didn't matter!

I had a similar experience at my own wedding - out cold. Twice!!

I felt really nauseous during my first wedding. Unfortunately, I wasn't sick - it was my gut trying to tell my head that this was not the right thing to do! The rest of me finally figured it out years later...

I wish someone had given you the CANDY!

People can be so dense can't they! I hope you managed to enjoy it anyway... how did the photos come out?

Oh my goodness - that really was a wedding to be remembered! (or wish you could forget with all the puking before hand!)

BS said...

WOW - I feel for you for that day - but most important is that you got married. It wasn't funny at the time but it's good that you can "laugh" about it now.

Like BS said I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time but it makes a memorable story.
