Hometown reception

First Drinks in our Pimp glasses!
Wow I am so slacking about our wedding details and hometown reception! I am BAD!! But man I was really tired and then really sick!

Hometown reception was a super fabulous blast! We had a wonderful time, but it was a hell of a lot of work. I think people forget sometimes, that even though you are the Bride and Groom, it is a lot of responsibility and time consuming efforts to pull off a fab shindig for all your pals! And just being the Bride and Groom does not allow you to sit tight and have people serve you, as much fun as that would be.

So Friday before the big event, H4L, Baby DIVA and I headed out to the family ranch in the wee early morning hours to get the ball rolling. We spent hours upon hours setting out all the furniture under the multitude of tents for our guest to rest their precious tushes upon. It didn't seem like it would take too long, but man it did. Meanwhile my pops and this other dude went all around town in a refrigerator truck and gathered up all our favorite foods from all our favorite restaurants and brought them out to the family ranch. After an exhausting day of set up, we all crashed out in great anticipation of the fabulous affair that would commence on Saturday morning!

Saturday morning. Zoltar showed up, along with his friends. Bounce houses were set up for some bouncing fun. DJ was in place. Food was ready to be devoured. And H4L and I hit the bar! Then our fabulous friends and family begin to show up! We visited the BAR multiple times throughout the day, oh and of course chatted with friends and family. Chatted as best you can when you are the guests of honor and have adult beverages streaming through your body. Baby DIVA showed off her fabulous social skills and blinked her eyes at everyone in hopes of being held...again. And of course she was! The balloon launch was amazing. The tree planting ceremony was fun...the kids loved it! And at the end of the day H4L and I were exhausted, drunk and happy!
