Booked!

My part of the wedding is done!


We booked a trip for our honeymoon! I'm really excited about this.

We're heading down to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico on the West Coast. This place looks really nice, and much more quaint than all of the Carribean locations that are within a short flying distance.

Now that this is done all I really have to worry about is getting a suit (because I have to loan my current one to one of the groomsmen) and finding food for the rehearsal. I feel like we could have the wedding in 2 weeks if we needed. Just wouldn't have her dress, and we definitely need that.

And just because I'm excited about going there, here are a few more pictures:

Because my mom tells me to - http://www.veilubridal.com/ is her website. Andrea said she didn't want a veil, but my mom's got ring bearer pillows too. Check it out. I can guarantee delivery, cause it's like my mom and stuff.

You probably don't remember but Puerta Vallarta is the most beautiful place I have ever been to (of cours that was in 1974). I went there a few times when I was an exchange student.

Congratulations!

Poo-Where-To Vie-For-Art-Uh? En Estados Unitos de May-Hee-Koe? What??? So, like what's wrong with Lubbock, huh?! It's cheaper, with no mountains to get in the way of the scenery, and no big blue lakes to fall into and get all soggy in, and everybody (at least the 16% of the literate population) speaks Ingleesh! AND, you can drive there instead of taking your life in your hands on one of them thar new-fangled airy-o-plains (Who knows what kinda nutcases are flyin' 'em??). Besides, Everybody goes to some exotic out-of-the-way destination like resorts...Be An Original and take in the sights and romance of a really unique & special (not fulla summer tourists) locale like the Llano Estacado!! Besides, the tour guide is FREE; just give TEXDOT a call & they'll be glad to just send you one! Furthermore, some of the greatest people in the whole wide world came from there (the little Mrs., doncha noe). And if you just gotta speak spanish to somebody, just stop by any Mexican restaurant and engage to your heart's content!! What a deal! If you like, I'll help you get reservations at one of the most beautiful spots there, like the Dusty Plains Motel & Kennel, or the Flatlander's Delight Roadhouse & Saloon...Just gimme a call and I'll set you up! You want one or two nights? The Flatlander's always has a real special deal for honeymooners, 7 Days And 3 Nights, with a continental breakfast served (in an actual 1973 Lincoln Continental)!! Try it! You'll like it! For more info, just log onto: www.middleofnowhere.com
...What have you got to lose? Just think of the everlasting memories you'd make (Believe me, the little wife will never let you forget about the time y'all had)! And you'll never finish talking about the best part of all, seeing Lubbock in the rear-view mirror as you depart your romantical paradise!!! Come on, now...all them vivid colors in Mexico can damage your retinas for life (your eyes are safe in the panhandle)! No worries about pick-pockets and tipping and swimsuits and taxicabs and weird things on the menu and having a whole bunch of pictures to develope later (in Lubbock, one photo says it all!!)...
Have I got you convinced yet? Hey, if you like, I'll even make your first night's stay there your wedding present, how about that?!?! Just say the word, and I'll fix you two little roadrunners up!
...Oh, yeah, almost forgot, if you are really in need of a suit, I can go ahead and sue you. So when that Travis County Constable shows up at your door, just open up, and he'll be delighted to present you with a freshly pressed and delivered new suit!! You see, I'm always just tickled pink to help you out in a pinch!
Well, time to go now! Hugs & Kisses Y'all!!!!!! Don't forget to call me about those reservations sometime before July 9th, as they do tend to get a little booked up by about 11:30PM on Saturday nights (you know, the hourly crowd!!)...

See! Ah Told You! Ah just knew you'd see the light...You got it right in the last verse of that song by my ol' runnin' buddy Mac "Aroany" Davis...Yessiree! Lubbock getting near and dearer. Shucks, once you been there, you won't wanna ever leave. You can even be a Red Raider fan....Well, on second thought, that MAY be a bit much to ask...But, once you been to the Llano Estacado Winery just south of town, you'll see a whole lot clearer what Ah mean. Yeah, when y'aller honeymoonin' there, take in the American Wind Power Center (don't blow it off!); see the Buddy Holly Statue & Walk of Fame (take home a real chunk of his crashed airplane as a souvenir memento!); shop at the South Plains Mall (it'll flat bowl you over); check out the United Spirit Arena (so cool for you two newly united spirits!); and wow, do they got some museums!: Sigh-ants, Wrenching Heritage, Ahm the Max Theater, and golfin' all over the place (kinda like a big miniature golf course, all flat so yer ball don't go rolling back at cha!)...
Man, I can't wait to see the picture ya took when ya git back!!
You decided yet which lodging you wanna make yer dreams of?? - Hey, yeah, I fergot to mention the most romantical place fer you two lovebirdies to stay at: The Red Raider Band-Aid Inn, where you kin git all aroused up listenin' to the Raider Marching 500 Band gettin' tuned up in July for the big football season's performances! It's great, they practice in shifts all day & night, so's they kin be Really Red Raider Ready to Rock & Roll - Right underneath the bedroom winders of the honeymoon suite!! Man, UNFORGETTABLE!!! Let me know, so's Ah kin gitcher reservations in (you DO have reservations about this, now don't cha?)...
Well, hey, Ah gots to go now, the lidder woman's wantin' the remote back so she kin catch the Texas Country Reporter on the tube. Oh, yeah, check out the RFD channel on TV, too, honey...Well, anyways, catch ya on the flip side of the 45!! Bye Now!

Oh, please, you guys, be real careful there. Just looking at those pictures gives me the willies! That first picture, it looks just like those photos taken right before that horrible naughty tsunami wiped out everybody a year ago last December! And that bedroom picture, oh my goodness, look at that railing, it would be so easy to fall right through it to your deaths! And that bed, Matty, you'll be hanging off of it from the hips down, its a bed made for midgets, you'll twist your spine and never be able to walk again! All that glass! People can see right in and be looking at you two guys right in the middle of when you, well, oh, uh you know, oh gracious me! The next photo that shows the place hanging right off of a cliff! What if it rains, and the mud slides down and knocks the hotel place right off the foundation, and then wooosh! right into Davy Jones' Locker! If the airport is there how can they avoid hitting one of those high mountains? If you make it in, the odds are you can't make it out alive!! Oh golly, gee! And worst of all, that last picture, the one where the sky's on fire (or is that one of those big asteroids about to hit nearby and destroy everything?! And don't you know what it means when there's a terrible bad Red Tide like that? All the fishies die and smell and make killer incurable infections and bacterias and diseases that you guys will catch and die from or be disabled for life! Oh, heavens to Betsy!! Please you guys, DON'T GO!! Save yourself now while there's still time! Can't you see why in the first picture that nobody is there? Don't you get the hint? I saw that there's someplace called Lubbock that might be a whole bunch safer to go to, That nice Mr. Hicks must really know what he's talking about, and I bet he wants you guys to be safe, too! Please, we all want to see you guys again after the wedding (you will send me an invitation, won't you?), and not have to see what happened to you on the six o'clock news! Would you guys like a fire extinguisher as your wedding present? Please be good and re-think this scary trip that you are planning. I'll say goodbye now.
