One Last Thing...


A funny thing happened on St. Patrick's Day. I married The Boyfriend.

Oh, did I forget to mention that we were getting married? Oops, my bad.


That's us getting ready to walk into the church (the same church my great grandparents got married in). I'm not too sure what the confused look on my face is all about. At least I still look fabulous in my wedding tunic. Who needs a wedding dress when you can have a wedding tunic? Bonus of the tunic... not needing a bridesmaid to help you go pee. And I know what I'm talking about, I've been that bridesmaid.


Me again. This time wearing my Nana's fifty plus year old mink cape which turns me into my alter ego... Fabulous Girl. Fabulous Girl doesn't fight crime or anything. She just hangs out... being fabulous.


Me and The Husband (that's weird, not used to that at all) and some pretty nifty wedding presents.


Having our red velvet wedding cake and eating it too at The Old Inn On The Green with the Best Man Girl (who needs a Best Man when you can have a Best Man Girl) and the Matron of Honor (who by the way was that bride I had to help go pee pee).


And finally us again, the happy and very tired couple at a bar much later that evening (it was St. Patrick's Day after all).

The way all weddings should end; pissed in a bar next to someone wearing a moose hat.

So from now on I suppose I will be referring to The Boyfriend as The Husband.

But if I forget, you'll still know who I'm talking about.

P.S. A final tidbit... at the end of the wedding dinner, The Husband (weird) and I went to pay and the waiter informed us that it had already been taken care of. What?! How?! Huh?! My Amelia Bedelia Mother pulled off the coup of the century, arranging to pay for the whole thing from her little Dublin lair.
Well played Mother. Well played.

  3. Congratulations! You kept that a secret! You didn't even give us the chance to get out our big hats!

    You know, it's not a real wedding unless it ends up getting pissed in a bar next to a man with a moose hat!

    All the best

    Btw, I know it's your wedding tunic and all (it's stunning, and holy crap did you rock it) but I want it. Or at least a close facsimile. Just saying ;-)

  13. How sneaky of you!! Congratulations! Your dress is beautiful. In a way I'm envious of your small secret wedding. It sounds so romantic. I spent all of my Easter holidays making wedding plans and it's starting to become a bit overwhelming. Your wedding seems so personal and intimate. Perfect!

  24. Félicitations, Sarah Louise (and le Mari de Sarah Louise.) -- You have kept it all secret and were able to hide from the rest of the world and the paparazzi (who, let's face it, will be furious when they find out!) It looks like a wonderful multi-cultural event. Love the wedding gifts: Good luck with "French in 10 minutes a Day," and here's hoping you are already past the words taught in that book. :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
