Well we made it through the weekend alive and had fun. It really was a whirlwind. I really didn't think that it would go by so quickly.
I had so much fun. I had been looking forward to this party for a long time. We had a rough patch with Jesse losing his job, but thank God things worked out for us. It was the first time in three months that I had any alcohol. People kept refilling my champagne glass and offering to get me more beer.
I felt pretty that day. I really did. I don't always feel pretty or like I look good. I did my own hair and make-up. I was going to have someone do my hair but felt it was silly to pay $80 for a hairstyle when I don't usually like what people do to my hair. I rolled my hair in foam rollers and slept in them over night. That's the only way the curls will last all day. I didn't remove the curlers until around 4 pm on the day of the reception. I did my make up at my in-laws' house and boy am I glad I did. There would have been no time at the center. Once we began taking our photos things just went faster. Before I knew it the room was full of people and people were having fun.
Oh yeah, my father showed up. I really didn't want him there but I wasn't going to kick him out. Of course my poor mom didn't enjoy the day and who would when your cheating, abusive, demeaning husband is just there to look good in front of people. The only good thing about him going was that got enough money from the dollar dance to buy myself a new washer.
everyone was worried that I was upset. I wasn't really upset. I was indifferent towards him.
The food was great. I hadn't had carnitas ( fried pork butt) that juicy and tasty in a long time. The cake was great too. Everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves. We got a ton of presents. Like the backseat and trunk were completely full. It was a really nice surprise. We got a lot of kitchen things.
I don't know when we're going to get our pics back but here's one of us and our cake. I really like the way our cake turned out.
