I am so not a girly girl. I wear makeup about 1/4 of the time, just about never blow dry my hair, and am much more comfortable hiking or drinking a beer than shopping. So when it came time to get ready for our wedding I pretty much took a shower, put on some eyeshadow and mascara, and threw my hair in a ponytail [I did use some mousse, which made it 'fancy']. This meant that by the time I got to the mansion to 'get ready' I had 2 hours and nothing left to do but put my dress on.
I tried to walk around but with everyone getting ready [read: the caterer being an hour late and everyone panicking about that], and somehow people deciding that if I ran into Charlie our marriage would be doomed, it made things a little difficult. I actually did run into Charlie and the second he saw me he whipped right around and bolted in the other direction. I had to chase after him and ask him how it would be bad luck to see me when we woke up in the same room that morning.
So I finally wandered back to our room where everyone else was getting ready and hung out with my bridesmaids.
My sister was running up the stairs that morning & fell. she was icing her knee and eating Advil the whole time.
Everyone was yelling at me to eat. Yum, organic chocolate power bar. [I swear it was good.]
Yeah, they're cool like that.
Want to see how boys get ready? This is what they do:
They sneak beers from the bar and drink them after putting on suits which takes all of 5 minutes. They've got it way easier than we do.
