Quilting Heidi

NQR Funny for the day

Recommended Posts

One of my best friends Daughter's was getting married and we went to GA for the blessed event.  I made the cake and cupcakes and had a blast being her "Fairy Godmother."  Friday was an absolutely beautiful day and this was the sunrise that I watched and actually didn't at all mind being up for...lets just say I'm not really a morning person.

So I helped get the bride in her dress and got it all laced up for her and she was stunning.  She and her now hubby decided that they would do pictures before the ceremony, new thing apparently.  They were supposed to do the 1st reveal upstairs in a beautiful room of windows but decided they wanted to do it outside by the pool.  The house my friend rented was to die for!  So I was dubbed the Fairy Godmother and it was my job to make sure her dress was fluffed and laying perfect for pictures.  I dutifully stood by the photographer ready to rearrange when needed.  Here is a picture to proof I was behaving.  You might also notice how close I am getting to the pool.

Well I wanted to make sure that I didn't obstruct the photographer for the great reveal and stepped a little more out of the way.  All of a sudden I realized that there was no firm hard ground under my feet and down I went!

I was mortified!  My best friend asked me if I was ok and I said, "Yes." and tried my best to get out of the pool without anybody seeing me.  LOL fat chance of that!  My friend then asked me if I got my hair wet, which was all done up.  I hadn't gotten dressed yet because I had to go to the reception and set up the cake and cupcakes.  Whew!  No my hair wasn't wet.  She then doubled over in a fit of laughter.  For a second I thought she was going to fall in with me.  Now imagine that the groom did NOT open his eyes but he said he so wanted to.  What a moment.  It will definitely go down as one of my most embarrassing.
 
All turned out great and the rest of the reveal, ceremony and reception were perfect.  Here is a picture of the beautiful bride and groom cutting the cake.

Oh, Heidi, that is hilarious!  So glad you are able to laugh about it and that your hair didn't get wet!!  Guess this proves that "Fairy Godmothers'" don't melt!  Congratulations to the lovely couple!

I'm glad to provide you with your humor for the day.  I have to be able to laugh at myself.  My friend thought it was hilarious and thanked me for providing the humor.  The bride and groom also thought it was hilarious.  I still can't believe I actually fell in.  Not much else I can do but laugh about it.  There is not a video of the fall, otherwise I'm sure there would be a utube out there!  I was happy to take one for the bride and I sure am glad it wasn't her in the pool!

Heidi, I can feel for  you.  So sorry it happened, and glad you weren't already dressed for the wedding.

 

Seems like someone could have gotten you a towel from the pool-side supply.  Geesh, kick them!

 

Hugs lady, it is just soo funny.

What a hoot!! I know you just wanted them to have something to remember that you were at the wedding!  Lol  That's great, thanks for sharing.  It is good that the weather was still nice and the water probably was not too awful cold.  LOL

Heidi,  I love it!  Thank you for sharing.  I can't believe you didn't get your hair wet.  From the pictures it looks like you fell into the deep end.  The stairs are at the other end of the pool!  You must be a lot taller than me.  I'd have gone under for sure!

Never a dull moment with you, Heidi! J/K I wanted to literally LOL, but didn't want to wake up those sleeping this early in the morning! Glad you're ok though. It's also funny that your hair was so much of a concern. What us ladies do for others!
