Okay, if you read yesterday's post, you know it was my anniversary. I did not spend it with the love of my life, as he was.......yeah, you guessed it, out of town. Nothing new there. But, it was for a good cause! It seems we have gotten quite accustomed to three meals a day and a roof over our heads. So, we'd like him to keep his job!
Since I couldn't be with him, I ended up looking at our wedding photos. Boy we looked young...and it was only 15 years ago!! You don't realize just how much you have changed until you look at old pictures.
I scanned some of them in to share. This might only really be fun for the people that were in the photos. The rest of you are free to move on to more interesting blogs if you want to. I won't be offended. Really! But, if you do stick around there is a surprise at the bottom. I kept digging in my old pictures and I came up with an few old prom pictures! Can you say "dork".
This is a picture from 1992, the year we met and started dating. That is the skirt I was wearing the night we met. I know I'm a dork, because I know that! I'm an even bigger dork.....because I still have that skirt! Oh yes I do!
This is one of my favorite pictures from the wedding. Lizzie was 4 1/2 that day and she was so tiny and blond! SO cute! After we walked down the aisle and got into places, she left hers, ran over to Paul and hugged his leg from behind. I didn't see it until I saw the video, but it would just melt your heart!

My wedding party. Yes, I love purple and yes I made them wear those dresses. Sorry!
This is a picture of me with my junior bridesmaids, Stephanie and Joanne Rice. They were little girls that I babysat for everyday for several years. They are both married with children now! How is that possible?
The groomsmen. Mark Weatherford, (first note that he is standing one stair down from the other guys but is still just as tall! HE walked with my tiny junior bridesmaid, Joanne!) Curtis Ray, David Gour, Paul, Glen Stroud (his Dad), Bruce Root (his best friend and roommate from The Citadel), Mark Fentress (my brother-in-law) and my Daddy!
At the reception. SO YOUNG!
My parents! My example of a what marriage was all about.
Drum roll! My senior prom.......don't you love how my date wore a pink bow tie and cumberbund ??? Because it went with what I was wearing and I liked pink. Cool right? Say it was cool! I actually dated David for 9 months. Does he look a little young here? Yeah, he was freshman. I was 17, he was 14....maybe 15. Yikes!
And, if that wasn't dorky enough......we thought it would be cute to have our pictures made together... with our double date partners......my best friend, Michelle and her date, Steve. Lovely! We look like a singing quartet!
Her date's tie and cumberbund were peach to match her dress. Can we say a collective "Awwwww". LOL!
