Our actual honeymoon was in 1993, mrangelmeg and I went to Gatlinburgh for the weekend without the kids. It was the very first time we had gone anywhere just for pleasure (the other times I had gone with him on a business trip.)
18) If you were to do your wedding over again what would you change?
We had a "Friend of my sister's do the pictures and I would hire a professional photographer. Every time I look at our wedding album I regret that we don't have professional pictures, we just have snapshots from an amateur and some of them are out of focus and some are just missing because they were so bad we couldn't use them.
I am not a cake person. I think I would have gone with my gut instinct and had a cheesecake instead of traditional wedding cake. You see that all the time now, but back then everyone had traditional wedding cake. I would have been much happier with a rich chocolate cheesecake or ganache than I was with a white sheet cake (although our cake top for our anniversary was chocolate, only we knew that)
19) What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Lying in bed mrangelmeg sleeps on the left and I sleep on the right. We even do this in hotel rooms. I think after this long it would be very hard to change to the other way around. I can't speak for him but when I am alone I sleep on the right side of any double bed.
20) What size bed?
21) Greatest strength as a couple?
Always remembering what makes the other person happy. Also I think knowing without a doubt that we are stronger together.
22) Greatest challenge as a couple?
I would have said making time to be together, but this year with out weekly dancing date on Fridays we are doing a good job of that.
23) Who pays the bills?
mrangelmeg does all the financial stuff because I am dyslexic and get numbers and dates confused which isn't great for checkbooks or deadlines. Ever since he took over our finances we are in really great financial shape and he doesn't mind doing it. He just tells me when to stop spending money and most of the time I listen.
24) What is your song?
We were just joking the other night thatJohn Anderson's "Just a Swingin'" was our song. I like to think it is something a little more romantic than that though.
I nominate I Found Somebody by Glenn Frey besides great lyrics we can dance the nightclub two step we just learned last Saturday to it.
25) Describe your wedding dress
As you can see in the picture (that is a rare picture of me by the way) my wedding dress was a very simple Gunne Sack off white old fashioned Prom Dress actually. It was extremely inexpensive and I still have it in the back of my closet.
26) What kind of flowers did you have?
Going along with the rose and ivory (cream and crimson) theme of the wedding I carried a bouquet of silk roses and babies breathe that I also still have in a box in my closet. I threw a smaller "tossing bouquet" that I made so that I could keep my carrying bouquet. If that isn't the way things are done it should be. The girl who caught my bouquet wasn't upset at all that the one she caught was slightly smaller and I got to keep mine forever.
As to passing this along, if Ashley is reading this and wants something to keep her mind occupied as she stays supine and "resting" I would like to tag her.
