after the initial shock...

OK, so after sleeping on it and getting my head wrapped around it a bit and after the initial SHOCK has worn off a bit, Im ok with it all.
In fact, I'm very happy for them. It just isnt how I imagined her getting married.. but come to think of it, must of the things that I imagine dont generally happen quite the way I think they will! tonys a nice guy and he loves her and she loves him. what more could we really want... (well lets not think on that question too long!)
soooo.. tomorrow morning at 10:00 am my beautiful baby will be marrying Tony T. yes, that makes 3 tonys in our family.. hubby, son and now.. son in law. They would have liked to do things differently but for many reasons decided to just get married now and a party later.
so.. I'm good with it all.. but now I'm thinking maybe i should host a little brunch here afterwords... I guess I should call her and ask her if that would be ok... Its only going to be our family and his there. and guess what.. it was only going to be them originally... now this I might have beaten her over.
so girls.. my babys getting married in the morning! got any ideas of something special I can do for her today?
guess I better take tomorrow off.. I already took this afternoon off to babysit for torry pie.. thank god robert and tiffany decided to wait til next summer to get married.
I have such a crazy family!
no wonder my hair is soooo white!

I had missed yesterday's post, so I was saying "What is happening?" Well, you just have to go with it, right? Our kids are so independent, we have to respect their decisions. And be there for them. So congratulations to your daughter, and you and your husband!


It all seems to work out! Maybe a cake and some flowers!?
Enjoy the moment and take photos!

Look at it as one more beautiful person in your life and the icing on the cake is that they love each other. A great day to get married! This day would of been my 39th wedding anniversary.Wishing your happy couple love,life and happiness!

It's funny, I never even thought about it. When I got married, I did it quietly and told my family later. A lot less stressful on the bride and groom to be sure, and really that's most important. Congrats!

Congratulations to the Bride 7 Groom to be!! and to her family!!

My baby, myself and 4 of her friends (future bridesmaids) went wedding dress shopping this past weekend.When did she grow up??
It was only yesterday Julie and a couple of the girls were playing dress-ups in our basement!

Samantha said...

Congratulations Vivian! And congrats to Jennifer and Tony too! May they be blessed with love and happiness beyond belief!!!
Your ice cream last night looked yummy, but I think this is definitely a celebration that requires cake. :)

I know it's a bit of a shock, but you handled it very well ;)

As a gal who eloped herself, I have to say there were so many things stressing me out about "planning" a wedding, that I decided that being spontaneous and driving to Vegas one random Sunday night was the way to go.

I think our folks weren't thrilled, but they appreciated not having to pay for a big "to do" ;)

Do I miss having an elaborate wedding? yes. But I get to say I wore jeans while saying "I do" ;)

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I know it will be a wonderful day!!!.....m.....

Julie said...

Oh - I say go with the day of pampering thing!!! Congrats.. Pomp and Circumstance can wait ..

Viv, you have the best attitude! You are a special Mom. It isn't the size of the wedding that matters, but the loved ones there who share it, so sounds like it will be a special day indeed.
Congrats Jenn and Tony :)

michelle said...

So you are telling me this parenting thing never gets any easier?! hope it is a beautiful day and you make great memories!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Well, a BIG congratulations is in order. Especially since they both love eachother!!! : )
Good luck tomorrow, Viv.

Seems they often don't do it the way we had it planned in our minds.My most perfect daughter is dating a guy who is five years younger than she is and about three inches shorter. Took me a long time to get past that. He is bright and very good to her and she is happy. I just wanted that tall guy who would squire her through life! I think i still need the recipe for that "Coping Sundae"!

I forgot to say congratulations!
Humungous hugs

Children are the best cure for a boring life ever! Always something unexpected and exciting!

Congratulations on adding another person to your family!

I fully expect for our daughter to do something similar someday, but she will tell us after the fact!
