About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    I'm A Redneck Woman
    Many of you have asked about further details of the redneck wedding that I attended two weekends ago. Here you go...just remember that you asked for it.

    Unfortunately(or maybe fortunately) I didn't get a chance to take any pictures. I was afraid that all the redneck-ness just might damage my camera. But I will try to give ya'll some exanples for visuals when I can.

    We arrived at the bride and grooms house at 2 pm just as the invitation stated. When we pulled up it was Dodge pickups as far as the eye could see. Oh, and an old run-down camper too. Alpha Male and I felt incredibly overdressed, since the standard attire of all guests was jeans, tshirts and black dresses with white open-toed shoes with pantyhose. They were stylin' in all their dress-up glory. There were more children running around than I have seen in years. I think each one of the cousins has at least 3 kids each. And we are talking a bog family here.

    Little did we know when we get there that the wedding has been postponed for an hour. What was the hold up you say? The bride had only applied for the Marriage License at 3 pm the previous day and in South Carolina you have to wait a minimum of 24 hours before the license is legal. The bride-to-be was to meet the judge in the Food Lion parking lot at 3 pm to pick up the marriage license. Did I mention that the groom was riding a scooter all over the country side too? No? Well he was. He pulls in at 2:30 all dirty and unshaven.

    After much waiting and trying to count the number of teeth missing from people's mouths (no kidding, I think the hubs and I were close to the only ones with a full mouth of teeth) the wedding started at 3:30 pm. There was no music, the bride forgot her bouquet and they had to go back in the house and get it, and they couldn't find the groom's ring. But as far as weddings go, it went and there were a few sweet moments where the groom got all choked up and was holding back the tears. And the bride was beautiful. Three cheers for all.

    The reception was basically everyone sitting around and chasing the kids with Budwisers in hand. They had decided to have an old fashioned cookout but no one had started the food prior to the ceremony so we had to wait to eat until close to 6:30 pm before anything was served. The tables were pieces of plywood on sawhorses with table clothes over them. Classy baby! And functional too! See groom is a carpenter by trade see? Lots of sawhorses around so might as well put them to good use right?

    The food was good though. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and chicken. With all the southern trimmings. Yummy! At around 7:30 pm the cake was cut and it was good for a Walmart cake. I have definately had worse. Hell, at my own wedding the reception hall was so hot that my cake was literally melting! At least I could say it was moist right?

    But all in all it was a good time even if most of the people there scared the daylights out of me. Hopefully they can make it last. Congrats to the Cousins! May your love last forever!

    What is scary to me? That sounded like my cousin's wedding about 15 years ago. My mom's side of the family are in the Ozarks and except for her, and a few others, are just as redneck as you described. And I'm going there for Thanksgiving. Which also scares me.
