Going to the Chapel

My friend Foxx and I talk a lot about weddings. Neither of us are married, so it's fun to imagine what a wedding might be like. Now, neither of us are in a place where we are going to get married anytime soon (Foxx is a lot closer as she has a boyfriend), but we both agree that it might be fun to have a party where you get to wear a pretty dress, be the center of attention, get a lot of gifts, and get to eat cake.

With this is mind, we decided to get Facebook married, as in, having a wedding ceremony so we could change our Facebook status to "married".  And wouldn't you know, I live right by Voodoo donuts, so it seemed like a pretty good place to get it done. Luckily, Foxx's boyfriend is a pretty cool guy and thought the idea was hilarious.

The ceremony itself was pretty fun, as Voodoo donuts provided an officiant. Yes, he is wearing a rabbit mask. As part of the ceremony, our spirit animals were determined and drawn with chalk on the floor.


Mine is a cat.

The ceremony was fun, and we couldn't stop laughing.


Foxx and I worked together at camp, were we make fools of ourselves all the time, so dressing up to do this in front of a packed Saturday night crowd didn't phase us. Did I mention this doubled as my birthday party?

They even gave us a quarter to use in the juke box. We picked Proud Mary as our wedding song.
We decided it was a costume optional event, and our friend Donqua chose the role of Groomsman, and wore an awesome mustache all night.

We ordered donuts too. Delicious, delicious donuts.

Our "Bride and Bride" donuts, filled with red jam, which is slightly disturbing

We were lucky that my friend Leslie came along, because she brought some awesome Dollar Tree additions to the mix. Like mini-champagne glasses.

And then we went home and ate more donuts until our teeth fell out. Not a shabby birthday weekend!

Isn't this what your facebook wedding was like?
