Day 18 - My Wedding

Can I just say that I love my wedding story? SA and I were planning a big church wedding in Oct 2004 however his parents where encouraging us to elope. Here comes the part of the story that no one else knows!

We went to a XMas family gathering in Duluth and were staying in a hotel about a week before Xmas. We got a little frisky and the condom broke. Not knowing what we know now about azoospermia, timed intercourse, etc. we paniced. Decided we were going to Las Vegas and proceeded to do the deed again so that if we did get pregnant, we would never know which time caused the pregnancy.

Scott called my boss (an extreme b*tch) that wouldn't let me leave work on my own accord and told her that he was suprising me with a wedding in vegas and I would need to leave work early on 12/23. Of course I knew all about it but had to pretend I didn't when he walked in with my "wedding dress" and the wedding band. Keep in mind that our families had NO clue.

We proceeded to get on a plane to Vegas. Got off the plane, got a limo, went to the county clerk, got our license, went to the chapel and got married just after midnight 12/24 CT. We had dinner at the Riviera and walked the strip for about five hours, took a cab back to the airport and hopped on a plane to go home.

While at the airport, I called my mom and told her that "After last night, there wasn't going to be a wedding in October anymore." and proceeded to tell her that we got married. She walked around at work saying "I am a mother-in-law."

We were due at SA's parents for Xmas Eve Dinner and we were running a tad late. SA called his mom and said we had to do something with my family and that we would be there as soon as we could. (Big mistake if you know my mother-in-law as her step kids do this to them all the time.) By the time we got home, showered and got there we were about 30 minutes late and she was pissed and ranting. Finally, Scott had to stop her and tell her to "Meet my wife." All was forgiven after that.

My first time in Vegas, we were there for less than 12 hours but it was one of the best 12 hours we ever had.
