One month married...

John and I have been married for one month. It has been an awesome month and love this more than ever! I will be taking pictures on each month anniversary so I can record our first year married. We have been busy (with what? we're not really sure), just alot going on. We bought our very first piece of furniture together yesterday. We got a really big, comfy, overstuffed couch. We love lounging on the couch watching movies or our tv shows. It will be delivered Aug 5 so I'll be blogging that later.
John and Riley cuddling. They are too cute for words.

For our one month anniversary I made crawfish etouffee'. Nothing like stuffing your face with the one you love. I took this picture after we both had our couple of plates. I have cooked all week and I feel like I'm gonna burst. We had really good dinners last week.

Friday night John, his parents, and I went to something called Symphony on the Prairie. It's really big and they play different types of music. Friday was all Billy Joel music. It was amazing! The guy singing it was the star of "Moving Out", which is a Broadway musical put together by Billy Joel. It was so amazing but I couldn't believe the amount of people that showed up. Everyone brings chairs, blankets, food, etc... It was awesome!

This was my view. It was packed!!!
This weekend was good. Today we're going to Eagle Creek Park to have a picnic. It's a beautiful day (it's about freaking time!) and we're going to take Riley and go on the trails and just lay out for a while. I hope everyone has a great week!!

Nothing much....

I know I haven't posted in a while! Sorry!! There has been alot going on here lately. Nothing too fun or exciting but you know...I guess I'll start with our Indianapolis Reception. We had it July 5th and it was a really great time. I was so sick (and not from nerves). I think I had some sort of 24 hour stomach bug. It was hard to stand up straight but I played it off well I think. Mom and Keith were able to come in so that was awesome since I didn't have anyone there from my side except for friends from work. You can read mom's blog on that weekend. It was lots o fun!
This is after our Indy Reception. We needed at least one good picture with Riley. Last weekend John went to PA with his family for a family reunion. He had a great time and I had a very relaxing weekend home. I was able to CLEAN THE WHOLE ENTIRE HOUSE!!! I felt very accomplished by the time he came back. Besides cleaning I also got a pedicure, shopped with gift cards for the rest of our towels/ sheets/ etc., and went to a movie. It was great!
Friday was my friend Kate's Birthday! We went out to dinner and to bar's afterwards to celebrate. It was alot of fun.

John and I at P.F. Chang's. We were happy to find it relatively inexpensive for being such a nice restaurant. Yesterday we went see John's 2 aunts in Batesville, IN to show them our wedding pictures and DVD. It was alot of fun and it was great being about to catch up with them. They had a whole lunch spread waiting for us and it was good!! Riley enjoyed being fed and loved on. : ) We also went to Home Depot and spent a gift card there. I came home and ate chicken and sausage gumbo that mom brought me from her cajun store in SC. Yum!!

This picture was supposed to go with the other one at the top. Oh well...
Anyway, today we did a little more gift card shopping. We also went sofa shopping and I think we found "the one" at our price. We're going to check out a few more places then we'll decide. We spent the afternoon reading (me) and snoozing on the couch (him). We have also been getting closer in making final choices for Brazil. Tomorrow is back to work. Talk to you soon!

We're Married!!!!!

Yeesssss!! Finally, it's all over with!! We are married and back at home. Of course these pictures are out of order, but whats new? We went to Florida for a week and a half. It was alot of fun. The wedding itself was perfect (of course I think so!). We had a great time and I was so happy I got to see most of my family. Of course, like every wedding, there were a few glitches but I have to say I still think it was perfect. Never in a million years could I have predicted how I felt during the ceremony. John's face was absolutely priceless. It went over and beyond every expectation I could have had! It was funny and special all at the same time. I cried and laughed and have never felt so much for a person before [who isn't blood related ;)] This was our kiss. John decided to flip me to the side. I was holding on for dear life!
I think he just said "for richer and POORER"...

I love this picture. It seems like we're standing on water. Kinda seems right because I certainly felt like I was floating. I had so many emotions going on just through the ceremony. It was wonderful.

On our drive back from Florida I was still in shock we were married so I took a picture : ) It's still a little weird seeing him with a ring on, though I love seeing it. But I feel married. We're still in happy mode (thank goodness since it's only been 10 days) but it's a great feeling. I feel like I gained something special in my life, which I did.

Getting gas. Just letting people know what we were up to.
All in all, the week was a success! We couldn't have done it without our parents and I think we'll be thanking them for the rest of our lives for it. They have all went completely out of there way to make it perfect for us, and it was. We love ya'll!!!
