It's a nice day for a wedding link up.

I know, I know. I suck at daily blogging. I'll work on it.

I've taken this week off from working out. Before you drop your jaw, or roll your eyes, it's because I am doing Relay for Life tomorrow and I plan on walking 20 miles. 80 laps. Yep, I'm crazeballs. We will see how far I go, but I really feel like I can do it. I plan on bringing 3 pairs of shoes so I can change things up and confuse the heck out of my feet so they don't hurt too awfully bad.

And now for my first link up. Let me see if I can do this right. button
 A few bloggers that I follow on IG and BlogLovin' have a fun link up and I thought I would give it a whirl. You can follow Mel and Holly and laugh your ass off and be inspired just like I do!!! Seriously, they are some funny chicks. Now to my white trash beautiful wedding.

Matt proposed to me on my birthday in 2008 after being together for 7 months. ( I will post our love story one day) This would be the second wedding for me, and the first for him. We discussed a big wedding or a small one, and because it was his first, we started to plan a big one. And then after many, many crazy roadblocks, and 2 postponed dates, we decided to just do it. We were sick of planning. Sick of budgeting. Sick of things getting in the way of our marriage. We just wanted to be married. That's all. The happily ever after. We no longer cared. We were tired and fed up of all things "wedding". So after talking with a friend who got married at the courthouse, I picked up the phone, and made a reservation. 4 weeks later....

I picked up a zebra print dress (cut me some slack, it was 2009) and a button up shirt for us at Macy's. We had my kids and our good friends stand up for us and Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Mam we were hitched. Nope, I wasn't knocked up. Nope, he wasn't leaving for the military. We were just head over heels in love and wanted to sign that piece of paper!! It was quick, and we had family and friends there and that was all that mattered. We left right after for a night at the coast and had a blast. 

My sister, sister-in-law and cousin planned a reception for the day after we got home from the coast. It was supposed to be at my Gram's house since she had a big house, but she got hurt the day before, so change of plans, and it was at our house. We all piled into our 1200 sq ft. home and had a great time. My daughter wrote a beautiful letter to her Step Dad, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. 

So would I change anything? Nope. It was perfect for us. I love Matt more than any person I have ever loved before and THAT is all that matters. We have decided to renew our vows at 5 years, and I am going to give him the wedding he deserves (which I just realized is in 1 year and 5 months, THANK GOD for Pinterest) and we are going to do it big. He has said that he wants to see me walk down and aisle, and he wants to dance together to a first dance. So we will be doing it. November of 2014!! 

My adorable, fun, awesome family.
