To the HONEYMOON and BEYOND!

Originally we had this whole coastal road trip planned out. We were going to stop in one city a night and just drive down Highway 1. Then we realized we didn’t want to do that, so we planned on staying in two cities: Monterey and San Diego. Monterey has THE AQUARIUM (yes, it needs to be capitalized like that – because it’s the best thing EVER). And San Diego has the zoo and is closer to Pheonix, where we ended up driving after our official honeymoon was over. San Deigo….. I’ve heard it’s a beautiful place, I’m not so convinced since all I saw was the hotel room and a walgreens…. the explanation will be coming.

The Sunday after the wedding we went and opened presents with the family. There was lots of typing of gifts and gift paper flying around and people munching on food...

The Wedding….

Everyone has been asking me, “How do you like being married?” What do people expect me to say? “Oh, well, you know…… it’s fine – I guess.” I usually just make some quippy comment in response. We get to save on gas money. I get to decorate an apartment (more on that later), I get more sleep, and most importantly I get to see and be with my best friend all the time (except when he’s working, or I’m working… you know, the REST of the time). I’ve also learned some things about myself. For example: I’m a Yo-Yo cuddler in my sleep. I spend my sleeping time rolling from one side of the bed all the way to the other side of the bed and snuggle with the Hubby. Then I roll all the way back to the other side of the bed. It just keeps repeating itself. At least that’s what I’ve been told. I always wake up in the same spot, so I’m not sure if I believe it.

But I’m sure my three blog readers really want to hear about the actual WEDDING DAY. Not about my odd sleeping habits.

For me, the best part of getting ready for the wedding was seeing all my friends and family come into town. Friends I haven’t seen in years flew in to celebrate with me and help get everything ready. From keeping me sane, to sneaking me out for dessert, to keeping track of all of my stuff on the wedding day – I couldn’t have stayed sane without them. Or have put together so many blasted paper lantern things.

The night before the wedding I made a very smart decision that involved modern medicine. I took an Ambien. Well, half an Ambien – I did want to wake up the next morning. I thankfully slept through all the night time drama. Like my littlest sister/ flower girl tossing her cookies all night. Poor thing was as sick as could be, but show up she did for all the pictures and wedding festivities (granted, she was on the strongest anti-nausea stuff my dad the P.A. could procure).

My day started at 8 ish. I woke up, gathered all my stuff, through some clothes on and headed out with my mom and The Humanities Major to get my hair did. Mr. The-Best-Kept-Secret in Modesto, Ca did my hair, beautifully. And he gave me some great make-up tips. So I finished my make-up, put on my pearls and we drove up to the temple.

What I had failed to plan was making sure that my temple recommend was in my possession. The fiance had it, so I had to wait outside the temple for him. As soon as he got there, I booked it inside to change into the wedding dress for wedding pictures round one. Which went kind of smoothly. There was one point when all the groomsmen took off to who knows where (turns out they had pizza stashed in someone’s car)...
