Funny Stories

So, in order for you guys to get to know us a little better, we wanted to share some funny things that have happened to us in the past few months.

We went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas just a few weeks ago with my family. It was tons of fun and the weather was perfect. Towards the end of the day, when we were about ready to leave, we decided that we wanted to go on one last ride. It was a bugs bunny log ride and there was a really long line. When we finally were able to get on the ride, Matt decided that he would try to beat my sisters to the back seat. He tried to jump into the back but one of his feet got caught and he totally tripped into the seat and almost smacked his head on the other side of the car. While that was pretty funny by itself, all the people waiting in line for the ride saw him trip and shouted "ohhhh, how embarrassing!" He hung his head in shame for the remainder of the day.

My funny story happened on our wedding day. Let's just say, if I were superstitious, we probably would not be married right now because there were a lot of "omens". Well, it all started in the temple. When I first got there, I was assigned a matron like everybody else who assured me that none of my things would get lost since everything was tagged with my name. So, I get into the locker room and my matron hung a changing robe over my locker. All of a sudden, when I was getting ready to put on my robe, I saw one of the workers come and take my robe away. I wasn't sure where she put it, so I quickly called my mom over to try to get it back. She got my matron who asked the worker who stole my robe, and the worker couldn't remember taking my robe. Finally they found me another robe, so I went to the changing room to put on my wedding dress. My matron hung my dress on a hook right behind my changing area (so I could see the dress in my mirror while I was changing). Then, while I was putting my dress on, I looked in the mirror and saw the same worker that stole my robe take my dress bag and put it somewhere. I told my mom that the same worker just stole my bag and she told my matron. My matron confronted the worker and the worker had no recollection of taking my bag. They searched and searched for my dress bag but couldn't find it anywhere. Finally, I had to go get married, but my matron promised me she would find my long lost dress bag. By the time I got back (as a married woman), they still could not find my bag. They told me they would find it by the time I got back from taking pictures, but, when I got back...still no bag. They finally found a spare bag to give me that was too small for my dress. After all that, I did get married and I'm glad I did. But they never did find my bag and I'm not sure if they ever even found that robe either...

Anyways, hopefully you found these as funny as we did.


  1. Man thieves at the temple! It's a conspiracy! Heather had her veil "misplaced" after or at some point during our wedding day.

  2. I think I also had my dress bag stolen. Those Salt Lake matron ladies are far too "helpful". Just leave me alone and let me keep track of my own stuff!

  3. Lol. Seriously...that's hilarious! I'm glad I wasn't the only mistake. My matron made it sound like that never happened...EVER!
