A Happy Ending

HappyEnding2

______So, I never really mentioned this to you guys because I wanted to keep it a surprise and not annoy the heck of you by constantly bringing it up, but... last week, I kind of got married.

______"But Ali, where is your husband?"

______Well folks, he ran away in fear after realizing what a mistake he had just made--you know, marrying a potato-creature hybrid such as myself. 

______...

______Juuuuust kidding!  Yeah, no, I didn't really get married.  Though, I do want to see how many people comment on this saying, "Congratulamations on ur marriage bc I don't read ur supa-dum postes bc ur writing is not funney!!!1"

______So the real deal behind these pictures is that the other week, I was able to have this awesome opportunity to be a model for a vintage limousine service that caters to weddings!  A photographer who took our family's pictures once before (his name is Butch and he is fabuloso) contacted me and I eagerly agreed to do it.  I was able to pose next to a super stunning Rolls-Royce and a lovely Mercedes Benz as a "bride."  I didn't feel like much of a model during the shoot since I haven't done anything like that before, but the guy who owns the limousine service really liked how they turned out for his website, Coats Classic Cars Vintage Limousine Service, so I was just happy to hear that.  Heck, he even put me in the header of his website!  I am truly honored.

______Afterward, the owner was kind enough to take us all to Panera afterwards for lunch... So guess who got to ride to Panera in a Rolls-Royce?  I'm just living the life over here, you guys, and you're all just petty peasants in my kingdom.  

______I kid, I kid.  But really, the photographer's wife and I were sitting in the back of the Rolls-Royce while the owner drove it and we were just squirming over the awesomeness of every little detail inside and snapping tons of pictures and such.  It's not every day you get to ride in a fancy vintage car!  Overall, it was definitely a neat experience.

Hahaha, oh Ali, I saw the first picture and read that bit about marriage and I'll admit, for half a second you almost got me. :b
But then I was like "Nahhhh, no way."
I can see why he made these his header! You make for one stunning model. Seriously, any future guy would be an idiot to run away ;)

Bwahahaha hey, you could have had me for a moment there (but I would have always wondered where this fiancee of yours was during outfit photo taking. ha!)

Seriously though, you make one beautiful bride and surely will help convince other brides that they need to book this limo company immediately.

LPNs can choose to grow to be registered nurses by attending LPN-to-RN coaching software applications. You can look at the outline first to get each topic and then look up that topic in the references. Many nurses that work within home health care settings work through early intervention programs that assist families with young children who have special needs that must be attended to and met.
