Happy Monday! I hope you all had a FABULOUS weekend!!!
Now... Where were we??
Oh yes... The bridal party made our grand entrance into the reception and took our seats at the head table.
|The head table, with a few stragglers.... :)|
By this time our guests had started to eat dinner and quiet down....
which was the perfect time for toasts!
So... know how its traditional for the groom's best man and the maid of honor to give the toasts?
Not our best man. Dusty isn't a public speaker.
He begged and pleaded with Mr. M to not ask him to give the toast...
In fact, I don't doubt that he would've just disappeared if Mr. M had asked him. It's just not his thing.
And that's ok. :) We had the PERFECT replacement.
Mr. M's sister, Stephanie.
The only girl with three younger brothers, she was more than up for the challenge. :)
She began with a tease toward Dusty about how he was Mr. M's perfect best friend.
He can drink beer.
He can team rope.
But he can't speak in public, so that's where she came in. :)
|Well all laughed and Dusty blushed as Steph called him out on not giving the toast. haha.|
She told stories of Mr. M when he was little...
How he was the youngest of the four and she had so hoped to have a sister...
How if he was a girl, his name was to be Kassandra.
Kassi for short. No kidding! It really was!!
But then how everyone, especially his new wife (me!) was so glad he'd been born a boy.
It was the perfect toast for Mr. M. :)
Then it was Kayli's turn. My sister. My maid of honor.
And do you know what she did...
She said she would like to take this opportunity to make a toast.
She pulled a toaster from under the table. And made. a. toast.
|LOVE the look on her face!!! She was quite pleased with herself! hahaha|
It was hilarious. Had the whole room laughing. ;)
While her toast was toasting she did say a few words though...
She said a few sweet things about having me as her sister...
And how she was excited to have a new brother that teased her and loved her like the two she already has.
At that point... I nearly cried. Didn't shed a tear all day.... and almost cried listening to my sweet little sister.
:) Love that girl. Love you Kayli.
Up next... the cake! :)
