Random Ramblings

My mom has started a blog, This Is Not Nutcrackin'! Go check it out and follow her for funny stories about our family, decorating tips, crafts, and maybe even some recipes! She has a cute new blog design, courtesy of the awesome Kelli! Oh and remember this post of mine? That is what she named her blog after, so funny!

This Is Not Nutcrackin
I just realized I haven't watched any Halloween movies yet this year, not even Hocus Pocus... who even am I anymore?!

I hate that Netflix asks if you're still watching.. so rude!

We got a lot amazing sneak peek pictures back from our awesome photographer Dayna last night! Yay, if you're friends with me on facebook you can see all 132! Here's one though to hold you over! More wedding recap posts to follow after the honeymoon, promise!

I have a sinus infection and bronchitis, and our honeymoon is in a few days, woo! "Ain't nobody got time for that!" I am so excited for the Bahamas! Peace!

I'm Married!

Our wedding was 8 days ago and we are officially married! I know it's cliche, but it was definitely the best day of our lives and it was absolutely perfect, even with a few minor snafus (transportation failure, suspender troubles, an ER trip for me a day before the wedding- more about all that after the honeymoon). It was a gorgeous but very chilly day (45 degrees and windy; oh well, I provided blankets and at least I didn't sweat!).

I definitely have post wedding depression. I keep thinking about what I was doing this time last week and reliving all the memories in my head and I am just so thrilled that we had such an amazing wedding, but I MISS it, if that makes sense! We had a 4 day wedding weekend and it was awesome and I want to do it all over again, exactly the same. It went by so fast!

Ok, enough of my rambling, I know you want to see some pictures. I don't have my professional pics back yet obviously, but I figured I'd share just a few from the day that family members/friends took. I will definitely do some recap posts after the honeymoon, which we are leaving for in a few days, but for now you get a small photo dump.

I know I'm biased but it was the best, most beautiful wedding! Be back soon, I swear!

I don't even care that I'm posting this at a weird time. Oh and I guess I'm like a once a week blog poster now, my bad. You know it's bad when your mom texts you Sunday night and says "You had all day to write a post and you didn't, why not?"

I am so frustrated at Reeds Jewelers I could scream my head off. I've already cried enough for a month and I basically have no tears left so screaming it is. I can't even get back into it right now because I finally calmed down about it but it's basically this- I haven't had my engagement ring for over 3 weeks and there was a chance I wouldn't get it back in time for the wedding in NINE DAYS but the regional manager assured me it will be back in time so fingers crossed please.

Speaking of the wedding, do NOT even mess with me right now. I cry at the drop of a hat. I don't need people's crap! Got it?! Grrrrr

I know people always say some variation of "oh the wedding is just a day, your marriage is forever" and I agree with that sentiment, but that does NOT mean the wedding is not important. It IS the first day of your marriage and it IS probably the only time in your life that all of these people will travel from all over the place (we have 98 guests traveling from 13 different states, and only 15 of those guests are from our state, Pennsylvania!) to come together for just you. How many other times in your life do you get a day all about you? I mean yea, your birthday, but really, do 98 people come to your birthday? Because they certainly don't for mine. I just don't like when people brush off my concerns about my wedding day by saying "it's only one day" because NO, and I want it to be nice, geez!

Our couch got cleaned today because our dogs have been nasty and we have like 30 people coming over before the wedding next Thursday and I wanted it to look nice. Now I can't let any of the dogs on the couch until after the wedding, which isn't so hard for the dachshunds because I just take their ramp away but it's going to be a pain with Oatmeal. Also I feel so guilty not letting them up and I just want to snuggle them! I'm wavering but I can't give in!!

My little brother is being an "evil gnome" for Halloween and man that costume is freaky!! I love gnomes but that one is scary!

Are you dressing up for Halloween; if so, as what? I'm off to watch Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder (though I've said it before and I'll say it again- I love that show but in case you are wondering, that is absolutely not what law school is like AT ALL.. just sayin').
