Mazel Tov: Watishista! Wedding Day

20 Aug

The big day is finally here! The very first watishista! wedding.  My beloved partner in crime Shiggers and her completely amazeballs man, ginboonmiller are tying the knot.  These crazy kids met at a World Cup match and fell ass over teakettle in love.  As you do (or should!) They both have impeccable taste in life partners (and friends ::ahem::). I’m so lucky and blessed to have them both in my life. Here’s a little something Iker and I cooked up for the event with our rudimentary video skills.  Iker’s gone through the five stages of grief over this and has come out the other side. Bless. Here’s wishing the happy couple a life full of love and happiness. And footy. And out jazz. And all the other things that make living a pleasure.  Now it’s time for me to put on my big wedding hat and my dancing shoes and join the rest of the Brooklyn Sweaty Shanks Pena to celebrate.

Much much love, Lozil

PS For those who were curious to see the engagement ring, peep this – I took a close up shot – now you see why we gasped? I may mug her myself! 😉  It was ginboonmiller’s great grandma’s ring – isn’t that so lovely?

    Wow, look at that ring…gorgeous! And I really love the video, though it pains me to see Iker in such agony.

    Congrats shiggers and ginboonmiller! Wishing you a life of love, happiness, and many World Cups to come! And a kick-ass wedding day, of course. Hope you all have fun today 🙂

    Oh, Lozil…

    You are too. freaking. awesome. No words, and we haven’t even gotten to the weepy parts of the day yet.

    But if you mug my wife I’ll kill you.

      • headbandsandheartbreak August 22, 2011 at 12:31 am #

        By the way, that was me – replying from my phone. I’m such a dork, but he said WIFE! Squee again!

    Yes, we’re checking out the footy site on our wedding morning. What can I say? I love this man! Thanks for everything, Lozil!

    Congratulations to shiggers and ginboonmiller – have a wonderful wedding day and a very happy marriage! I guess it’ll be awesome since it started with this stunning ring…

  11. Allison August 20, 2011 at 5:57 pm #

    Congratulations! Since you’re married now, would you mind if I gave Iker a call? 😉

    • shiggers August 21, 2011 at 10:47 pm #

      Uh, what?! I’m married, not dead. The hubbie just said, “Just because you’re on a diet, it doesn’t mean you can’t look at the menu.”

      • shiggers August 21, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

        Although Iker does seem like he needs consoling…

  12. Mais August 20, 2011 at 8:47 pm #

    Congratulations Shiggers! I was going to add a link of Creepy Big Kaka Smile for you, but thought it’s best to keep your wedding day creepiness levels to a minimum. Hope you spend a lifetime of happiness together 🙂

    • shiggers August 21, 2011 at 10:53 pm #

      Thank you for that–Kaka isn’t something you want to see on your wedding day (too high a risk that he’ll be coming at you with a knife).

  13. emily August 20, 2011 at 11:03 pm #

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! I bet you kids are plowed right about now… And Casillas is back at his pad playing bury the sausage with Mrs. Right-Now to help cope with the pain of his greatest loss. ;-p
    Shiggers – I give you permission to now use ‘The Old Balls and Chain’ whenever referring to your spouse in casual conversation.

    • shiggers August 21, 2011 at 10:55 pm #

      Damn–wish I had seen this before I referred to him as hubbie (highly objectionable). And if Iker needs to bury his pain that way, he could at least do it with a respectable watishista!

  14. Jenny August 21, 2011 at 1:10 am #

    Wow – wow – wow!

    This is so lovely!

  15. AnnaBuena August 21, 2011 at 1:54 am #

    The song and the picture in the end with Herithno cracked me up. Haha!

    Congratulations Shiggers and Ginboonmiller! I hope I’ll be as lucky and meet my future love at the World Cup too! Or a truimphant Real Madrid game! 🙂

    sorry, Iker, Sara will have to do, but dont marry her just yet now, ya hear?

  16. Vanessa August 21, 2011 at 5:24 am #

    i apologize for being so lame but,
    what is WATISHISTA?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 22, 2011 at 12:33 am #

      Jelly is right – the Glossary is way more fun to read than us telling you! 🙂 It’s on the right hand side of the page under HB & HB Necessities (right above the list of Sites We Love).

      • Vanessa August 22, 2011 at 8:24 pm #

        OMG!!! thanks for not telling me, it was so funny reading all the definitions 🙂 CONGRATS!!!

  17. jellyace August 21, 2011 at 8:25 am #

    I could tell you but it’s better if you click The Headbands & Heartbreak Glossary link on the upper right side of the page.

  18. Manie August 21, 2011 at 11:54 am #

    Congratulations!! Also that ring– gorg!

  19. forzasusan August 21, 2011 at 9:51 pm #

    Priceless! Congratulations!


  1. Wedding Bells: Iker And Sara To Finally Tie The Knot? « Of Headbands and Heartbreak… - March 13, 2012

    […] I’ve been busy all day and I’m finally preparing a post on the presser/training, but this came up and I thought I should get this up first. This is just one of the many tweets congratulating Iker and Sara that has sprung up in the past hour. There are tons of stories in the Spanish press today about them getting married post-EuroCopa on July 1. I guess we’ll have to wait for something official but if it’s true, congrats. I knew Iker wouldn’t last long after Shiggers tied the knot. As Shigs & ginboonmiller head toward their first anniversary, Iker must have finally realized that he would never have his dream girl Shiggers and it was time to settle for Sara Carbonero. For those of you who are new to the blog, my partner in crime Shiggers married her true love, watishisto ginboonmiller last summer. Iker was crushed as detailed in this video. […]
