|Us before the wedding...|
The wedding was amazing! Well, actually the reception was amazing. The ceremony was just for immediate family and Bridal party. There was a fantastic DJ and a great band. The Bride was incredibly beautiful, but I don't want to post any pictures just yet. She had two beautiful white dresses and her hair was incredible! It was sort of twisted and to the side. So pretty. I want to get permission before I post any pics or extra info. So, you are stuck with pics of just us for now.
They had a sit down "buffet style" dinner including grilled chicken, ribs, baked potatoes, salad and garlic pita bread. I was good and avoided the carbs with the food. However, I did NOT avoid them with the alcohol. I had some wine, some more wine, a little pale ale, more wine, and then "shots shots shots", followed by...more red wine. I ended up drinking about 4 shots and at least a bottle or two of red wine. I vaguely remember a few conversations with people that I sort of know. I remember hugging one person and telling her I love her (sorry Katie!). Then, I remember twisting my ankle and falling. Yikes! I am still limping around now and had to use a crutch all day yesterday. My foot is now a nice purple and slightly larger than normal. The knee too. Hopefully the cameras did not catch any of that. They seemed to be pretty focused on the Bride, so I should be safe. I also still have a bit of a headache and hangover, so excuse any typos please! : )
What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't share a drunk pic?
|Sadly, I had A LOT more to drink after this picture!|
Anyways, now that you all think I am a crazy drunk, I talked to my Doc today. I DO have gallstones. I am going to meet with the surgeon tomorrow to set up an operation and have my gallbladder removed. In a way, it is a blessing. I am really sick of being nauseous, having stomach pain, being bloated, having hot flashes, etc. Now I FINALLY know what has been causing so many problems for me. At the same time, I am not looking forward to another operation. I hoped that my first two operations would be my last two. However, I am told that it is a pretty easy operation. I also was told I would experience some yucky side effects, but I would lose a lot of weight. I just hope it solves my problems. Sigh. 27 and falling apart....
