cancun - the wedding

kass and chris had a gorgeous beachside wedding.
the sky was blue,
the sun was shining
and the wind was strong.
[please excuse my hair by the end of the night,
the wind got the best of us] 



they had a lovely ceremony
with a few tears and lots of smiles.
they wrote their own vows,
which gets my automatic respect.
i can't imagine trying to put a lifetime of love and promises
into my own words.
ronnie and i decided 'i do' was good enough.
very romantic.
we spent the night dancing
and i spent the majority of time
trying to contain ronald.
he had a few too many and thought
he had moves like jager.
oh cheese.
but it was fun and i think kass loved every minute.


kass asked me to give a speech at her reception,
so i decided to take the fresh price of bel air rap
and redo it for our love story.
[her and i, not her and chris.]
i think it won her over.
plus i got to put my mad skillz to good use.
yo. yo.
i'm working on getting the video,
i'll post it when i do.

this is how i got down:
Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just stay on your ass
I'll tell ya’ll how I met my best friend, Kass
West of Warrensburg we were born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
I was chasing some boys outside of school
i was rockin kindergarten and on the very first day
I met a blonde little girl and man, I gotta say

She was skinny as a rail and her teeth were kind of big
But her heart and her tie dye were what I dig.
She was impressed with my duds, purple head to toe.
And from that moment on our friendship would grow.
I remember bradley baker and z cav jeans
I threw grass in her face once.  Man was I mean.
I was her first sleep over, but eh, she didn’t stay
she missed her mamma too much and went back on her way

I remember rolling dirty in the lumina with natty
I remember sneaking out and lying straight to her daddy.
We curled each other’s hair and picked out each other’s clothes
We had each other’s back with friends and with foes.
She was the first one there when I had my baby girl
And I tried to be a shoulder when her mamma left this world.
There is no one I can think of who deserves this more.
Here’s to happiness and health and not being poor.
Now if everybody will join me and lift up their glass.
I’d like to make a toast to Chris and Kass.

great wedding.
great vacation.
i want to go back.

and now it might be mandatory to vacation as a group.
best. time. ever.
and a huge congratulations to
mr. and mrs. dewitt.
