My Big Fat Italian Wedding

Okay so last night we went to a wedding for my cousin. Honestly, you would think that my side of the family were the only ones there. We just had fun in the way we know how. Cheering, whistling, and dancing. I think there were about 30 of us from my side of the family. We had the best time! I love when my family doesn't have to worry about putting on a show, or worry about being proper, and just lets their hair down and is themselves!
I think the funniest part of the wedding was towards the end. My grandma loves to dance! She really can move and grove. She asked me if I would dance, and I said I was too tired to tonight. So I pulled her aside and told her to ask Jason to dance. She was so excited...she asked Okay, what kind of song, fast, slow? She was really looking forward to dancing with him. I told her a fast song, that Jason is good at dancing on fast ones. So as soon as a fast song came, grandma Bea danced her little body and grabbed Jason on the dance floor. Oh I was laughing so hard! I went and sat by all my cousins (8 or 9 of us) we were watching Jason and grandma dance. She was going to town!!!! All of a sudden I look and I see Jason standing there looking all around. Grandma was shaking her grove thing and started dancing everywhere else on the dance floor but next to Jason. Jason was looking right to left and couldn't find grandma. He then found me and came and sat by me and said....your grandma left me on the dance floor. Grandma can't control herself when there is music on....she's gotta shake her grove thing...if if that means she leaves her dancing partner standing there. Oh I was just laughing so hard! My husband is such a good sport! He danced so well and was out there without me...he is the bestest!

This was the first time grandparents and aunts and extended cousins saw me since we have been pregnant. Lots of belly touching, hugs, and congrats! Again, it is a realization that we are really having a baby in 6 months!
