Big day

November 11th is a big day in the bunny household.

First and foremost it is Veterans Day.  Thank you to all those veterans who gave of their time and most especially those who gave of their lives to protect our freedom.

Especially this handsome devil-

That be my dad many moons, and many shades of gray ago.

Not only is it Veterans Day but it is also mine and MrBunny’s anniversary.



I looooove this picture of my best friend.

Our wedding was black and white with roses. Very pretty and hopefully classic enough that in 50 years I won’t look back and think “what the hell was I thinking?”.

Ol’ Daddy O again- with a little tear in his eye. How cute is he?

My sister and I hoofing it back to the front of the church to take pictures.

Note to wedding dress manufacturers everywhere- if you were to color code the loops and buttons for a bustle it would make things much easier. I can’t tell you how many people and how long it took for those many people to figure out what went where with that bustle. I don’t think I had even met MrBunny’s cousin before that weekend and even she was drawn in to help thanks to her bridal shop days.

We of course stopped at Busch Stadium.

Our reception was at the Cafe DeMenil which is in south city St. Louis.  A fantastic venue.

My best friend caught the bouquet. And in case you haven’t had the pleasure of being in St. Louis in November- it is cold. There was a heater/blower right behind me apparently which caused the veil to go airborne there.

My sister and I showing off our mad dancing skills.

Cutting the proverbial rug.

I realize there have been no pictures of the baby sister so I must remedy that with one that is perhaps my favorite from the evening:

My brother dancing with my mom, awwww. He is such a Momma’s boy.

She can never try to not claim us. Ever.

As you can see we are a very mild mannered bunch. People often say “that family is so quiet and demure, you’d never know it if there were in the same room.”
Or not.

In case you were wondering- I did have a husband there at the wedding but he doesn’t like his picture up here and there are almost none of him during the reception (outside of dinner, the cake cutting, and the first dance) because he reverted to his wallflower ways and hung out with a friend of his the entire night. It’s understandable- my family can be a little overwhelming. Not to mention the fact that we are perfectly willing to take on the role of “life of the party”!

All pictures were taken by Zettl Photography out of St. Louis. If you are in need of a photographer I’d suggest you look them up. They did a fantastic job and are great to work with.

But not only is it Veterans Day and my anniversary but it is also the anniversary of the first football game played by The University of Alabama in 1892. Roll Tide!
