1 whole month!!

Monday, Matt and I celebrated one whole month of marriage!!! Ok, so it may not sound like a big deal to all you old married hats out there, but we can’t believe how time has flown. We are adjusting to living with each other, and being that we are both only children and very stubborn in our own rights, that’s saying a lot!!

My biggest fear going into this was dinner. I was so worried about us cooking dinner for a pesco-vegetarian and a full-on carnivore!! We’ve done really well so far. We manage to eat REAL food most of the time (and not resort to hot pockets and cereal but about once a week), and we’ve managed to cook things together for both of us to eat.

Combined banking and finances are truly a blessing, but it’s just going to take some time to get used to. End of story.

Our house is still a wreck. We got tons of lovely gifts from our friends and family, and we are so appreciative. But we have nowhere to put half of it. Our kitchen suffers from a severe lack of cabinet space. We literally have 2 double wall cabinets, 1 double floor cabinet on one side of the sink, and 1 single floor cabinet on the other side of the sink (under-sink storage can only be used to store cleaning products b/c it’s just gross). THAT’S IT!! That’s the only cabinet space in our whole kitchen!! We’ve got to figure out something quick, because all of these gifts sitting in the corner of our dining room is driving me nuts (short trip I know). Don’t worry, a kitchen remodel is on the list – we just can’t swing it until next summer at best.

As promised, I am posting pictures from our fabulous honeymoon in Negril, Jamaica. We had an amazing time and can’t wait to go back!! And we will go back; anyone wanna come with?

We Are Back!!!!

Hello everyone!! Matt and I are back from the honeymoon in NEGRIL, JAMAICA and back at work, ugh. We had an AMAZING time during our wedding weekend and a FABULOUS honeymoon. We are basically looking for a reason to go back ASAP.

First, for all of you brides out there: if you want to get all of the bad jou jou out of the way before your big day, just back into your fiance's car 3 days before the wedding. It works like a charm!! I wrecked both of our cars in a matter of seconds, but all the wedding weekend events went off without a hitch, until the end (but we'll get to that).

Second, make sure that you have some amazing friends taking pictures for you all weekend. Pick a couple of folks, and let them know that you want pictures of everything. I had a couple of bridesmaids with great eyes and great cameras. I am so grateful b/c neither Mom nor I had to take ANY pictures all weekend.

Third, hire Melody Hood to shoot your wedding. There is no explanation needed after you see the pictures of the wedding and my bridals.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from many different cameras for the whole weekend!! I promise I will get Jamaica pics up soon. Enjoy!
