The Husband and I got married on April 24, 2010.
It was a very lovely wedding, we were surrounded by family and friends and everything was perfect.

OK, now onto the fun part of this post.
This is one reason I'm happy to have boys. I know that by the time they get married, the traditions will probably have changed a lot, as they did before The Husband and I got married as compared to my parents.
I feel that the bride and the mother-of-the-bride have much more responsibility for the wedding than the groom or the family of the groom does. Therefore, I'm happy.
I'll gladly help out where needed, but I did find a lot of the details in planning a wedding extremely tedious and therefore am pleased I won't have to worry too much about them.
I'm also very traditional in thinking that the bride's family pays for the wedding. Okay, I'm not really. That's just wishful thinking because I have boys. I would be more than willing to help pay to make their day special (up to a certain amount of course).
I'm also looking forward to embarrassing my kids during my speech as was done to me during my wedding. I'm thinking of starting a diary to keep track of all these moments.
I'm excited to become that mother-in-law, especially when they have kids. The one that calls everyday to see how "my" little munchkins are doing, offering ridiculous suggestions on how to parent the kids and spoiling my grand kids beyond belief, sugaring them up and sending them home (none of which my mother-in-law does by the way, she's fantastic)!
Honestly, I'm looking forward to seeing my boys happy with whomever they choose to marry and to enjoying their special day with them.
That is, once I let them go at the age of 30! Until then, they're mine!
I'm never letting them date...alright when they're 30!
