Writers Workshop

Mama's Losin' It

I choose to do Prompt 1 this week in Mama Kat's Writers Workshop. What was your wedding song and why do you like it? There were 2 really good ones I could have written this week, but I choose prompt 1 cause I can add some pictures. Yes wedding, but some funny ones of our groomsmen!

Our wedding song was Making Memories of Us be Keith Urban. Ok first I LOVE Keith Urban. We actually had a hard time picking one. We went back and forth on a bunch of them. Then the Hubs was going to create our first dance song.

I had heard the Keith Urban song a couple of times and really really liked it. The Hubs helped me narrow the songs down to about 2 or 3 and let me pick. It was a tough choice, but easily picked Making Memories of Us.

We were all set, then Big and Rich came out with Lost In This Moment. And of course I feel instantly in love with that song. I couldn't make up my mind at all. For weeks I went back and forth. The Hubs, really no help. Told me to pick. I thought about it for a while and obviously I choose to go with Making Memories of Us. Lost in this Moment was a wedding song plain as day. Very big that year and I figured a ton of brides would be choosing that one. So I went with my initial feeling and am so glad I did. The song was perfect and every time it pops up on my Ipod I instantly smile.

The Big and Rich song? Oh it was still played at our wedding. The Hubs had me called onto the dance floor half way through the reception. He had recorded himself singing the song and meshed it in with Big and Rich. At first to me it sounded normal but everyone at the reception that knew the song picked up on it right away. He did that because he knew how hard it was for me to choose. The groomsmen were all in on it of course and were down on their knees around us as we danced.

Making Memories of Us

I'm gonna be here for you baby
I'll be a man of my word
Speak the language in a voice that you have never heard
I wanna sleep with you forever
And I wanna die in your arms
In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm
And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

I wanna honor your mother
I wanna learn from your pa
I wanna steal your attention like a bad outlaw
I wanna stand out in a crowd for you
A man among men
I wanna make your world better than it's ever been

And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

We'll follow the rainbow
Wherever the four winds blow
And there'll be a new day
Comin' your way
I'm gonna be here for you from now on
This you know somehow

You've been stretched to the limits but it's alright now
And I'm gonna make you a promise
If there's life after this
I'm gonna be there to meet you with a warm, wet kiss
And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us
I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll win your trust making memories of us

And for fun, a shot of the groomsmen and the Hubs doing to lawn mowe at the reception.

The Hubs apparently had problems getting his started...

Also after further review of the above picture, apparently the Hubs and one of our groomsmen wanted to switch vests during the wedding...
