So, as some of you may know, this Saturday was my wedding day!

My family all came in from all over the country, and really worked so hard to make it the perfect day, which it was.

So, as we are sitting at dinner on Thursday night, I was telling them how I had wanted to do a towel wave for our exit, but that I hadn't had the money to buy real terrible towels for the 100+ guests, and I had had no luck finding cloth to get it done. So, it would have been nice, but it wasn't going to happen. Yeah, well never under estimate the power of my family.

Two of my aunts decided that I needed to have my towel twirl, and they went out, bought yards of fleece, and spent the day before the wedding cutting it into small "towels" for everyone to wave, and then draped them over the backs of all the chairs.

Mike (the new hubby) and I had two of my towels for our chairs, and a third true towel was proudly displayed on the dj table.

So, at the end of the reception, all the guests lined up with their makeshift towels, and twirled and cheered as Mike and I walked out, twirling our towels. It was awesome. My whole family (and there's a lot of us...my mom is one of 10 kids, so lots of aunts, uncles and cousins) were all chanting "Here we go Steelers! Here we go!"

We also included my Uncle's original terrible towel in the family picture.

Just a great day! I will post pictures as soon as I am able...haven't had a chance to see what's on our camera yet (we had someone take pictures on it all day), but when I can get some pictures of it all, I'll put them up.

Then yesterday (which happened to be my birthday), came home, watched the game, and got my birtday wish...WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!!

I couldn't have asked for a single thing to be different about this weekend, it was all just amazing!

Oh, yeah! I definitely bleed Black n Gold!! The hubby is a Bears fan, but he gave my my day! He knew this would make me so happy, and was more than willing to put aside his Bears fandom for the day, so that I would be happy. (Plus, as long as Steelers aren't playing the Bears, he cheers just as hard for us as I do...)

That's right, your the wife....duh Flippy.....I was reading that and thinking about my wife and wedding....so I gave you a sex change in my head and turned you into a guy when I responded....doh...

Sounds totally awesome.

I was thinking when I ready that, there's no way my wife would agree to something like that. And she'd have been mad at me if I wanted to watch the Steelers game the day after my wedding rather than consumate the marriage :D

But you my friend are the wife and the shot caller.

Sorry about the mix up there.

I'm sure your hubby will be a convert to Steeler Nation after we win the SuperBowl and he gets to see first hand how much fun it is!!!!

Congrats.

Well, I definitely won't be able to convert him to a full time Steelers fan, and I wouldn't want to, because he's been a Bears fan for so long, and it's as much a part of him as the Steelers are of me. But he's definitely a part time fan...roots for them any time they play, as long as it's not a Bears-Steelers game. And we've been together for almost 9 years, so he experienced the joy of the last Super Bowl, so it definitely won't change him. But, he's wearing HIS Steelers jersey today to support the Steelers, and in his words, "be a dutiful husband"

I know I'm definitely not the "typical" bride, but I love my football, and the terrible towel wave just seemed to be so appropriate as a reflection of me. Plus, my whole family are huge fans, so they just loved it too.

Pictures coming as soon as possible...sadly no video.
