We Are Such Rebels…

Forget the Groom's Cake - Big Pink Cookies Instead!

Mike & I met because of our blogs. We didn’t meet online in the online dating sort of way, but instead we had mutual blogging friends when Mike lived in London. Every time he would come back to Houston, both Dave and Ann would ask him if he had met me yet. They kept encouraging me to meet him. So when Mike finally moved back to Houston and hosted an afternoon at a coffee shop on September 21, 2002, I knew I *had* to go just so I could finally meet him in person.

I knew that day that I had met “the one”. A few weeks later we joked that we may as well just run off to Vegas, because we were going to get married someday. We are a little more practical than that, so instead we dated for over a year, and he proposed on New Year’s Eve, 2003.

Mike wanted the more traditional wedding. He pointed out that people come together three times in your life to celebrate you – your baptism, your wedding, and your funeral. The more I thought about it, it made sense. So we gathered our loved ones and celebrated our love with them.

Neither one of us is from Houston or the south, so the traditional “Groom’s Cake” was not our thing. However, considering our history, we knew that there was one thing that we had to have. The Big Pink Cookie and a Coffee Corner.

We ENJOYED our Wedding Reception! Oh yeah, our reception was FUN!

Now that is a really cute idea – pink cookies! My son and future DIL met on the internet too. (she is from Tennessee but we are teaching her how to be a Texas girl) The wedding will be in Tenn – maybe I can make some Texas shaped cookies.
