Re: Hey Katt!

  • Warning. This is long.

    The wedding was amazing! It was so beautiful and my sister was the most gorgeous bride I've ever seen!

    I have to share about my toast. Before my dad passed my sister's fianc asked my dad for permission to marry her. So throughout his hospital stay he knew the proposal was coming and was practicing his toast. When DH and I were visiting one day, he told me what he wanted to say. What a blessing!!!!! I didn't tell anyone except DH that I was doing this but I told her during my toast what he wanted to say. I led up to it about how my dad was practicing his toast in his hospital bed, and how even before she knew she was getting married he was so excited about it. Then I said "from the heart of our dad, here's what he wanted to say..."

    OMG! I could barely say it all, I was crying and sniffling so bad, but I made it through. And in the end it was the best gift I could have ever given her. Everyone at the wedding was telling me all night how beautiful it was, which was exactly what I wanted, for everyone to feel how big his memory is.

    That was long, sorry, but wow the wedding was amazing! They even got a party bus after the wedding for the bridal party and we went to a club with VIP service! Spectacular!

    I managed to fake my way through the entire weekend without drinking and no one suspected a thing!

    I feel great, a little nausea, which I wish I had more so I could feel like things are going correctly. I had some spotting before the first u/s which has stopped now, so i hope that means all is well in there. I'm very anxious for Thursday!

  • That is truly beautiful about your toast and how you incorporated your dad's words. What a special, wonderful gift for you to give! I'm so glad you had such a great time and that everything went so well. Glad also that you are feeling well!!  Spotting is so common, I'm sure it is a sign your LO is snuggling in tight. I want to fast forward to Thursday for you!!  :)

    Mad props for keeping it a secret!  Do your mom or sister know?

  • No my mom and sister didn't know. I didn't tell anyone. At this point, with my history, I'd hate to get everyone else's hopes up before I have a for sure answer. So I kept it a secret. I'm shocked I did it and actually got away with it.
