Where Did You....

spend your honeymoon?  Anything exciting happen while there?

I was talking about my honeymoon this past Saturday evening... re-living the excitement of that weekend!  We got married in February and had a trip to Charleston, SC planned for our honeymoon.  We had been invited to a preview showing of Gods and Generals by hubby's first cousin so we left our reception and headed to the theatre.  The weather was fine during our wedding and during the time it took to get to the movie but when we came out of the theatre 3 hours later, sleet was 2 inches deep everywhere!

We got a hotel right there for the night so we would not have to travel in the dark.  The next morning we got up and proceeded slowly down the interstate.  There wasn't much traffic and what was out there was moving slowly too.  There was a car in front of us that was going super slow so hubby pulled into the far left lane to pass him.  When we were well in front of him hubby decided to get back over one lane.  Well, when he attempted this the rear end of the truck started coming around to the front... Hubby was cool and kept his way about him but the truck was having its own way.  Thank goodness all of the traffic behind us was going slow because they all were able to get stopped.  After shimmying from side to side for what seemed like forever, the truck started sliding backwards across all 5 lanes! We ended up in the ditch!  We sat there while the other traffic finally came on through and then we managed to get back on the interstate and resume our journey.  It was not but about 5 miles on down the road that it was like a switch had been turned off.  The highway was DRY!!  No sleet in sight! Really wierd let me tell you!  I was just glad that we got through that unscathed...us, our truck...and anyone else for that matter!

Then if that were not enough excitement, we were driving down one of the narrow side streets in downtown Charleston and there was a dumptruck sitting half on, half off the sidewalk.  They were doing some kind of repairs and throwing the garbage into the backend of the truck.

There were some college kids ahead of us and hubby was watching them so he wouldn't hit anyone when all of a sudden we heard a gunshot!!  Immediately my lap filled up with glass from the passenger window!  I almost freaked out and went to looking at my body to see if I had been shot!

Come to find out the large mirror on the dumptruck had hung our mirror, which wasn't small by any means of the imagination. Ours was a break away but when the dump truck mirror hung it and then as we got past the truck, it let go of our mirror with such a force that it banged into the passenger window and busted it out!  It took us a while to find someone to repair the window that day but we did get it replaced.

And then the funniest thing ever... We finally made it to our hotel and checked in.  The place was super nice and we went out sight seeing for a while.  Hubby took me to Fort Sumter and gave me a history lesson.  yes! on our honeymoon. :)

But the funny thing that happened that night... We were deep asleep... it is about 1 a.m. in the morning when management banged on our door.  We finally got our wits about us and went to the door.  He told us he would have to call the law if we did not quieten down!! WHAT!!!  We told him we were asleep and had been asleep and he just looked at us like "uh huh".  I was so embarrassed!  He had the wrong room but I bet the one who needed the knock on the door heard what was going on in the hall because we didn't hear any loud noises after the man left.

However, we both looked at each other and started laughing hysterically. Now THAT is a honeymoon memory my friends!

So, I just wondered... would you like to tell us about your honeymoon?

When my husband and I got married (we had both been married before), we were on the interstate on our way to our destination. He starts saying he has to go to the bathroom and we end up going to his ex-sister-in-laws house so he can use their bathroom. I'm sitting in the living room trying to carry on a conversation with these poeople I've never even met who used to be his in-laws. He finally comes out of the bathroom and tells them, "You might want to avoid that end of the house for a few hours. The smell is horrible!" So...issue #1. We leave there and go to this really fancy motel with the jacuzzi in the bathroom and all. We had taken a bottle of wine we had bought at the Biltmore in Asheville, NC. We're in the jacuzzi drinking our wine, getting all happy. Well, when it came time to get out, he didn't have to strength to even stand up and step out. He had to slip and slide over the side of the tub onto the floor almost like a worm or a snake. He had to just lie there until he felt well enough to crawl into the bedroom. So my beautiful sexy negligee didn't get unpacked. issue #2. We had reservations at that wonderfully lovely place for three nights, but he didn't want to stay. He wanted to go to the mountains. So we pack up the next morning and head to the mountains. With no reservations. We had car problems on the way up there and had to stop at an auto repair shop to have a hose replaced. It was dark when we finally arrived in town, and we drove around forever looking for a vacancy sign that didn't have the word "NO" displayed. We finally find one. The place was so filthy, I took a shower with my socks on, and put my clothes back on and didn't remove the bedspread (the sheeds were yucky!) and had to wear my shoes in the room because there were sand spurs all in teh carpet. the final issue. Oh, and the sexy negligee didn't get unpacked again.

My husband was on the General's staff when we wed. We were treated to a weekend at the General's cabin retreat. The only food available was from a local hunter's little road side store at that time of the year...we ate eggs, toast, bacon all weekend! My husband was also sick on the wedding night...and spent the entire time in the bathroom! I should have known then...this is not a good sign!

Well....that was a honeymoon to remember!!!! Ours was very quiet in comparrison. DH was in flight training in the Navy so we just had the weekend. He flew home Friday, we married on Sat. and flew back to FL on Sunday. We did eventually take a honeymoon trip to New Orleans about six months later and had a blast.

No honeymoon at all just had to find a bed to borrow for our poor apartment. But we were happy. We both went to work on Monday.

I had a non-honeymoon, but we're still going strong at 47 years. Your post prompted me to post my experience: http://www.prytzfamily.com/2011/08/where-did-you.html

Love the stories... my honeymoon, a little over 7 years ago was in Maui - we got married on the beach. My bestfriend since I was 13 flew in from Houston to be my maid of honor and guess who she shared a room with? Yep! We had a suite and she had the extra room - hubby gave her a fake diamond and told her she was Wifey #2. We've been close and have shared everything for the past 46 years but trust me ... that night I wasn't sharing! LOL!
