here i am… to show you pictures…. i don’t photograph well AT ALL…. ugh… i much rather prefer to be behind the lens instead of in front of it… these  photos just go to confirm my tick status to the world… such is life…

i guess i could maybe do something about it and go on a diet…. yeah, right…

no really, i need to… i’ve got to start taking better care of the ol’ vessel i’m habitating right now…. we’ll see…. ha!

before i show you the pictures though, i was going to tell you about the cupcakes… you see, i hadn’t even thought of cake… i mean, this wasn’t your traditional big wedding with all the hoopla … no real wing dings or wam wams… not even any zu-zus… we are both pretty simple people who wanted to be married… that was the main goal… so…

folks started asking about cake… shit… ok…. cupcakes then… i really wanted to have red velvet but couldn’t find any stores that made red velvet cupcakes… bummed…. so at the last minute i called H.E.B. bakery

(for those of you who don’t live in Texas, HEB is a grocery store)
 

clerk: heb bakery, how can i help you?

me: um, i need about 50 cupcakes

clerk: we only sell them by the dozen

me: oh… ok so then i guess i need 5 dozen

clerk: what kind would you like?

me: hmm, i don’t care… i’m getting married and don’t really care if we have cake but some of the guests have been asking…so….

clerk: (giggling) chocolate… white…yellow?

me: i really don’t care….

clerk: how about 3 dozen white and 2 dozen chocolate

me: ok, that works for me

me: do you have that whipped cream frosting… i don’t like that really rich sweet frosting

clerk: yes… what color would you like?

me: um, i don’t know

clerk: (giggling)

me: i guess white?

clerk: ok, would you like us to put some coloring in the frosting?

me: i don’t care… if you want to you can

clerk: (laughing) ok, so white

clerk: would you like some sprinkles or something? (laughing before i answer)

me: i don’t care… if you want to toss some on there, you can

clerk: (laughing while putting me on hold)

clerk: (still laughing while coming back on the line) ok, so we have 3 dozen white cupcakes and 2 dozen chocolate cupcakes with white whipped frosting, no sprinkles, no color

me: (laughing) yep that about does it

bless her heart…. sometimes not caring or being very non chalant can make things more difficult on the clerks i think LOL

the cupcakes were delicious…they did a fantastic job with the white, chocolate and white whipped frosting

ok so here’s the pictures….you guys asked for it…. there are lots….

eek…. enjoy….

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  2. Hi Sherry,
    I’ve been saving these posts to come back and read sometime and comment. Congratulations on the wedding!! I’ve been a bit preoccupied myself and haven’t spent as much time in the blogosphere. Nor have I written much lately. Seems that researching things related to our upcoming wedding in October, and finally making some concrete plans, takes time. 🙂 I’d be happy with something small and simple, but Rob wants to go the whole nine-yards with more than 100 friends and family. After I finishing picking things out, I can not think about it against until the time comes. (one can only hope, lol) Congrats, again!

  7. Very teary here in Oz. Thank you. Loved everything about this post.

  8. I get a little teary at weddings, even viewing photos. You guys look great together, you did before, but even more so now! Terrific photos, terrific family! I really like the unity sand!

  9. Love the photos! Thank you for sharing them. Love the cupcake story 😉
    No voice? I hope that gets better.

    • ugh! i’ve been without a voice since December 24th… i’m so ready for it to get better… don’t feel bad just hard to make a sound come out… coach probably is glad to have the break from all my mindless chatter ha!

  10. Absolutely gorgeous!
    So happy and proud for you guys.

  11. aww It made me feel like I’d met your family. What a treasure trove of photos and memories. Your cupcake story is such a good one. I was right there with you as you were speaking to the bakery clerk. The unity sand so beautiful. I am happy for you, Mrs. Beauty

    • they are something else, my family! those girls are a hoot, and my dad is so so special to me…. and to have my brother & family, coach’s brother & family… and coach’s son! it was wonderful!

      the poor girl at the bakery lol
      i have no voice still – add that to the indecisive nature of the call… bless her heart haha
