ThurFriSatSunday

So...

Did you miss me? :o)

What? What the hell do you mean "No"??

Fine then! As my buddy Cartman says "Screw you guys! I'm goin' hooome!" Oh how I love Cartman... ::dreamy sigh::

Wait! I was just kidding! Come back! I've got stuff to tell you!
Don't mind me, I'm sick so the 6 brain cells I normally count on are kinda loopy right now.

On with the freak show recap.

.
Thursday:
Our annual Thanksgiving hosting went great. Relatives were well behaved, food was good, Tazz was in his kennel (you know, so we wouldn't be sued after he took a chunk off of someone's butt/finger)(not buttfinger! butt and/or finger). We had a great evening/night which ended in us discussing who was the sanest of all 5 of us siblings and brother Dan won hands down. I don't know who was voted crazier but I know it wasn't me.
By the way, I just want to mention that my sister made Green Bean Casserole and much to my disappointment... it was good! :o(

.
Friday:
We had a chance to go to Sergio and Esmeralda's house to meet the priest, Father Edward, that would be performing their ceremony on Saturday.

Talk about "out of the box"! He is genuinely a cool guy who told us about some of his "life bloopers". He has a real affection for both my brother and Esmeralda (can't think of why!). Anyway, he blessed their home and us, luckily, I didn't sizzle or melt when the holy water hit me. It was a real concern. ;o)

Although, now that Andy's been blessed, I'm not sure I wantta hang out him anymore!
.
Just so you know, we were godparents of Arras (or Wedding Coins*) so as a joke, we brought them chocolate quarters which Father Edward thought was hilarious.

As a side note, since I didn't know better, when I bought them they looked tiny so I told the sales lady to give me four packages of 13. She gave me a funny look and said I only needed 13. Oops!
.
Saturday:
We got our haircut and I yelled (well not so much yelled but "scolded softly") at my hairstylist guy (happily gay) for leaving Andy's hair so long last week. He admitted to it and said he just wanted to see him sooner...
.
We then drove days to witness the Holy Union of Sergio and Es. Little did Andy and I know we had to walk down the aisle! THE HORROR! We managed to do so without tripping or bumping into the floral arrangements (well, I did bump into 'em but they didn't fall).

The ceremony was beautiful!
Father Edward has come to know Sergio and Es because of their constant volunteering, so he was able to insert anecdotes about their history. They are truly blessed to have someone who knows them personally be able to marry them. This made a moment that should be special to begin with, unique and beautiful.

Also, when I brought the Arras up during the ceremony, Father Edward asked me if they were the chocolate ones... :o( :o) (Don't tell anyone but I think I stood on the wrong side of the formation line thingie, I was the only girl on the guy's side. Hope nobody noticed!)


.
Saturday Part 2:
On to the party!

There were allot of kids there. Allot Of Kids. ALLOT OF KIDS!

We had a great time, the food was good, the company was good, I regretted not buying the blouse that was a size smaller since the one I wore was too big and therefore made me look pregos. But enough about me! ;o)
.
Sunday:
Sick as a dog and talking to you guys!
.
I want to leave you with some Andyisms:
.
After getting my haircut:
.
Andy:
"Wow! Your hair looks good!"
.
Bee: [in shock since the last time he complimented me was...????]
"What? A compliment from Andy? Maybe, I should write that down so I know exactly when that took place!"
.
Andy:
"asshole"
.
But he says I exaggerate on his obsessive swearing.
.
While walking down the aisle at my brother's wedding:
Bee:
"Hey babe, it's like we're getting married!"
.
Andy:
"No! No no no no no..."
.
I think he might have forgotten we're already married. And if that's the case, I'm gonna start scoping out the men inventory to pick myself a Brad Pitt look-alike. (I say look-alike cuz the original is otherwise occupied and has too many kids) If you're a Brad Pitt look-alike, give me a call/email/smoke signal so we can chat... How you doin'?

While leaving the church thru the side door:
Andy:
Bee, that statue right there, who is it? Is it Joseph?
.
Bee:
ANDY! That's Jesus!
.
I hope your Holiday was as good as mine! :o)
.
.
*Here is the significance: The Arras represent assets spread over the twelve months of the year and more to share with the poor, the number 13 is of good luck and good fortune.

  1. Holiday:

    It sounds like you had a great time whilst some of us were slaving away in a beanless holidayless part of the world.

    GBC:

    The GBC looks really good. I wish I could get onions like that for mine.

    Wedding:

    The bride looks... hungry, and the groom looks thirsty.

    Joseph and Jesus:

    I was going to say they were father and son, so there'd be a family resemblence (duh...) but they were both carpenters with beards, so I still think it's an easy mistake to make.

  2. so much in one post. Father Edward sounds great. MY pastor, when growing up, was an ex hell's angel so he was very interesting too. (of course later he had an affair with the youth leader while we were on a youth retreat and scarred me forever, so much so I could not return to church)

    Drewism after I got my haircut: it doesn't look that bad, at least he didn't cry like Lean did.
    No one mwntioned it at Thanksgiving--wonder what that means?

    The bride and groom look dashing

  3. All the hype about GBC made it a very popular item...it was actually good! Lots of delicious food on the Thanksgiving Day menu (wish I could have some NOW!).

  4. oops! made a mistake...I wasn't done typing and it published (I was trying to see if I could save for later) :o(

    I'll have to finish commenting later on-have to go for now...

  5. Bee, those were some terrible, yet funny pictures. I am glad you were able to see this part of our lifes (Church/Father Ed).

    It's funny how my beautiful new wife talks about the food on thanksgiving... but mentions nothing about our wedding day... it appears the food on thanksgiving was much more memorable than our wedding day. Interesting huh? Seems like we are going to work out juuuust fine... the food was good.

    Ha, ha, ha!!!

  6. brian:
    Well, it's not my fault you live in a country with few Holidays! Maybe you should consider moving...?

    GBC:
    Yeah, those onions made the casserole.

    Wedding:
    I forgot to mention this was their third time getting married... to each other.
    First was in front of a justice of the peace or "civil ceremony", the second was in Mexico for a commitment ceremony and then this time, the most important to them, the religious ceremony.

    Joseph and Jesus:
    My mom "threatened" to take him to church more often...

    jean knee:
    :o( <-regarding your pastor.

    I saw your hair and liked it so let's pretend I'm sitting across from you during Thanksgiving.
    "Jean Knee, your hair looks fantabulous!"

    Esmeralda:
    We had a ton of leftovers! You’re welcome to come for more.

    SC:
    I think she was going in chronological order but was unable to finish. I'm sure she’ll come back and say how it was the happiest day of her life...

  7. ROFL!

    And your Andy-isms..that cracks me up :-)

  8. chris:
    Yup! That's my Andy! I wouldn't trade him for just anything!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well, I suggest you be careful then and get him a new hair stylist ;-)

    rofl.

    ReplyDelete
  10. would you trade him for 7 million dollars?

    my hair doesn't usually look like that picture, it was humid

    but thanks, bee

  11. chris:
    I dunno, maybe if he offered me free haircuts for the rest of my life he'd have a deal...

    jean knee:
    7 million dollars??? Where do I sign!?















    j/k

  12. If you send me $25.00, I won't tell Andy....

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jean Knee: Blackmail:

    I'm shocked!

    You're far too cheap! What do you mean $25? I was all set to demand $50...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I thought about $50.00 but then remembered the added expense of Christmas shopping etc.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bee, you should look at Tori's blog and get her hub's stylest, no fear of it being too long there

  16. You mean she wouldn't be able to afford your Christmas present? That's very thoughtful of you. I take back the "cheap" remark...

    ReplyDelete
  17. You two are so sweet but blackmail doesn't work with me. If you tell Andy he'll shrug his shoulders and say "Ha! She's said worse...!"

    :op

    Remember we've been married for 6.5long long long years so he's seen and heard it all.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Andy must be devoted to you - the sensible thing for a man in that position would be to offer to go quietly for half the $7 mil...

    ReplyDelete
  19. snickering quietly in the corner

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ha! Devoted! Yeah, we'll go with that... [snicker]
    He'd want more than half claiming he suffered mental and physical trauma.

  22. I think there should be a show - "Husbands Say the DUMBEST Things"!
    How do they get by with only 1/2 a brain?

    I LOVE the pic of the bride Biting the cake - that is cool!

  23. Lovely post! Missed Thanksgiving dinner I was feeling a little ani-social and was thankful no one was around to have to follow polite or even impolite conversation. On a side note Esmeralda has mentioned only about 4-5 time that there was this fantastic sweet potatoe thing at thanksgiving dinner. Recipe???

  26. I'm sick too, Bee. It might be the dreaded Black Lung from years of ingesting newspaper ink. :(

    You did so much over your blogging break! Here's my recap:
    Blow Nose, Eat, Complain That I Ate Too Much, Eat Again, Coughing Fit, Eat Again To Quell The Discomfort Of My Illness.

  27. MSOS:
    Yeah, but they're so cute and cuddly at the end we forgive them for smelling funny. ;op

    M:
    It was pretty chaotic here, it would have been no good for anti-socialism... I know it cuz I live it! People kept wanting hugs! :o)
    RE: The Sweet Potato. I'll see if I can get the recipe from my MIL. She loves sharing!

    EWBL:
    I hope you have someone looking after you. Although... being asked every 5 minutes if I'm feeling better sometimes drives me over the edge of insanity (there are times when I'm actually sane)!

  28. :(
    My newsgator is NOT telling me you have new posts.
    Man.

    Not happy.
