Pre-Cana Can Be Funny

This weekend the fiance and I had our first pre-cana class at the church we’re getting married in.  For those that don’t know, it’s a Catholic thing that you have to do to prepare for the sacrament of marriage.  I have to say I was completely expecting them to quiz us in some way or at least ask us to discuss or correspond with our soon-to-be spouses.  This was not the case.  We literally just sat there and listened to two couples talk about everything that has gone on in their own marriages for hours on end.  Quite bizarre, but hey, gotta do what you gotta do.  We also learned that a great thing to do in an argument is pray together.  I literally can’t wait until we have a fight now so that I can suggest we bow heads and pray.  I’m already laughing just thinking about that.  I'm sorry if that offends anybody, but it's just not us, and it makes me giggle.

Speaking of laughing, have you read some of the suggested readings for Catholic weddings?  We have a book with all of the options to choose from and let me tell you, freaking hysterical.  I’m almost tempted to choose the most bizarre readings possible because it is so funny, but I’m not sure the priest will read it with the same vim and vigor that I would.  Take this one for instance from the Old Testament...

“Hark! my lover--here he comes
springing across the mountains,
leaping across the hills.
My lover is like a gazelle
or a young stag.”  

Bahahaha I could cry laughing.

After class, we ran a few errands, almost came home with the cutest puppy puppy every (luckily a sound mind and logic set in), and set out to meet up  with friends before the Oriole game.  We never actually went into the game, but we had a good ole time drinking a few cold ones at the bars just outside.  

Since my Mom’s birthday is today, we celebrated on Sunday. I took her to get a facial (I got one too duh) and we went to lunch.  

I also ran into a lucky find and got bridesmaid gifts for my girls.  After, I planted flowers in my garden and got myself ready for the work week.  Quick weekend, but it’s always good when the weather isn’t freezing and the sun is shining!  

Next up.... May!  Have a good Monday all!

  1. Um you had a good weekend - baseball, drinks, and a group of attractive men? You're winning! ;)

    Lol are you having the full in mass wedding? Hopefully one day I'll get married (you can pray over that hahaha) but I don't know if I could do the full on mass. I'd pass out from all the kneeling!

    Happy birthday to your mama!

    Thanks for linking up for MMG :)

    1. We hadn't wanted to originally, but the MIL is all about it, and honestly the only difference is communion, so I think we're going to do it.

  2. Oh boy! We did our pre-cana as a weekend retreat. We weren't allowed to share a room but ended up sneaking in together anyway- we were already living together so it felt weird sleeping a part. Anyway! It was interesting, but we did actually learn a lot, so it'll be worth it to see what you need/want to take away from it to better your relationship.

    1. haha Rebels! We had one class this week and another one next week. Next week we talk about natural family planning, so that should be fun! lol

  3. Your pre-cana event sounded AWESOME! (slight sarcasm used).

    And if I suggested we bow our heads and prayed during a fight.. I'm pretty sure my fiance would pour water on me.. to try and melt me.


    1. haha yea I'm with ya there. It's really not that bad, just another hoop to jump through before we can get hitched!

  4. Saw your Orioles pics on instagram and I'm totally jealous!! I need to make it to the yard.
