Hey friends!

I am going to have to be more intentional with getting my blog posts written for the summer....it seems that in my busy-ness, blog posts get bumped from the priority list, not to mention, that I've been a little short on bloggy inspiration!!!  I find that when I am posting irregularly, I find less inspiration!!
I am always up for Friday Fives, though!  I love getting to know y'all better by posing five questions every Friday!  It's fun to share with one another the answers to the random questions I come up with!

So this Friday Fives theme will be a popular summer theme.......weddings!

Where were you married?
What one thing do you remember most about your wedding?
Do you remember a particular wedding gift that you received?
If you could have another wedding, what location would you choose to hold it?
Do you have a wedding picture displayed in your home?

Have a great Friday, y'all!!!

Where were you married? First Baptist Church, Vidalia, La.

What one thing do you remember most about your wedding? I had an incident where the neckline of my dress began to dip down due to the bottom of my dress being pulled by my shoes. The carpet was brand new, and as I sunk into it as I walked, the front of my dress would go under my shoes and tugged. Luckily, my friend Patty rescued me and threw it out in front of me and away from under my shoes!! :0
Do you remember a particular wedding gift that you received?
Some silver trays that haven't gotten a whole lot of use!

If you could have another wedding, what location would you choose to hold it? Maybe in the mountains!

Do you have a wedding picture displayed in your home? Only of my kids, not of us.

This will be fun to hear about everybody's weddings.

1. I was married in Greensboro, NC at the church I grew up in. Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church
May 15, 1976

2. The one thing I remember the most about my wedding is the fact that it poured rain after we got to the church. You can't get from the place where we dressed to the church without having to walk outside, so the wedding director had to take me through the church while there were a few people sitting in there. That upset me. Why she didn't ask them to leave, I don't know. But it is not a big deal now. I also remember asking my sweet Dad as we were getting ready to walk down the isle of the church if he was going to be OK.

3. I remember lots of my wedding gifts and who gave them to me. Silver Revere bowls were real popular at that time and I got right many of them. I also remember my china and a red electric wok that I got (it still works 34 years later).

4. If I could have another wedding, I would choose a destination wedding at a tropical location.

5. We have a wedding picture of us framed and on display in the house. It is of Tom and I walking down the isle after we got married and we are both grinning from ear to ear.

Oh, the bright red wok!! I wonder how many of us got one? I can still use mine, too. I don't... but I can.

1. 11:00AM June 23, 1984 at the First Baptist Church, Sylvania, GA.

2.I think I remember the HEAT the most. We had an outdoor reception. I also remember that at the end, every single groomsman stepped on the his partner bridesmaid's train as they rounded the curve out of the sanctuary. The bridesmaid would kind of lurch back. The husband and I stood in the vestibule and kept laughing.

3. I remember a lovely antique cake plate that my husband's favorite aunt gave us. It started my little obsession with antique dishware and with pedestal cake plates. It remains one of my favorite gifts to give a bride.

4. I would definitely choose something outside among the flowers. My mother was nervous enough about an outdoor reception and the weather. She would not negotiate an outdoor ceremony.

5. Oh good grief...my bedroom is decorated in "Early Wedding". We have pictures, the invitation, etc. all framed in there.

Hmmmm, well my husband and I were married at the JP in St. Louis, MO November 8th, 2002. A second wedding for both of us. Hence the JP:)
1.)What do I remember most. Probably the fact that we were all sitting in the main hallway where all the prisoners where walked before and after each court case lol.
2.)If we were to do it over again, I would have it in a pretty, secluded garden with a gazebo somewhere historical.
3.)I also got the red electric wok. Still have that (but from my first wedding;) ).
4.)Another memorable moment, my parents paid for our honeymoon since they were our witnesses and we all went to Branson,MO for a long weekend. The only hotel that wasn't booked was the Lawrence Welk Hotel. Nice place but we were the youngest people there lol. It just so happened that we chose Veterens Day weekend to get married. Every hotel was booked.
4.) Yes, we have wedding photos up around the house to always remind us of the day we both cried.
