Wedding Update

Take me out to the Ball Game. It's so cool. We are going to have a theme for our wedding. Let me back up. I have been thinking a lot about the wedding and I decided that I didn't want to get married by a judge and not have Jonas there. I think he needs to be a part of the wedding so he understands what's going on and that I am remarrying. I've told him a couple of times about the wedding, and he's excited and wants to go to the wedding but sit with Grandma and Grandpa. He's actually been to several weddings already and has had a great time at them, so I think that's part of why he's so excited. Because of that I decided that we should try to get married by someone on Saturday when we can have Jonas there.

Just before Christmas Erin said "I know I'm going to regret this, but I think it would be neat to get married wearing White Sox Jerseys". She doesn't want it to be only partially casual, she wants to force it to be very casual, and this would be blue jeans and jerseys. I thought it was a great idea. We're still talking about whether or not we should just get Jerseys that say Rigney, Bride and Groom, or a players name. I think wedding pictures will look a little strange from behind us if we are standing there wearing Jersey's that have someone else's name on them, but we'll get more use out of the Jersey than just the wedding that way.

I let it lie for a few days and now I'm thinking of all the cheesey things that we could do to really make it a crazy fun Baseball wedding. I said we have to have ballpark food there, like hot dogs and popcorn things like that. Then I thought right after we say our vows or I do or however it will be done that we "Throw a first pitch". So we could buy some bases and set up a little diamond in the yard. Erin has already said we need to get matching t-shirts for our parents and kids so they can all look the same. I think we can do all sorts of other fun things to go along with this and have a lot of strange corny ideas floating around in my head right now. I'm so excited.
