Week of the Wedding events...

The week of the wedding was crazy busy AND went by soooo super fast! I had 'moved' back to my parents about 10 days before the actual wedding. It was Spring Break at school and it was nice to not have to worry about keeping it all together in the classroom, while at the same time tying up loose wedding ends!

To say I actually relaxed makes me laugh! I wish that I had more time to actually spend with family but everyone was running around between getting last minute things, entertaining out of town family etc.

We got married Friday, March 25th and had our reception the Thursday before. Troy's parents hosted our Rehearsal dinner at a yummy Western themed restaurant in town! It was delicious food and a treat for our out of town guests! We actually do not have many pictures from the Rehearsal dinner, as it literally flew by!

Here are a few for your viewing pleasure!

Troy and I gazing longfully at each other across the yummy cake!!!

Sarah (bridesmaid), Patrick (best man) and Allison (flower baby) AKA the Phoenix Bogles!

And just because I love the cake I had designed for Troy! Each side had a different aspect of Troy's personality/ hobbies and of course the A is for the UofA (who happened to be playing that night AND won!)

Bachelorette Party Galore!

This will mostly be pictures which will not do my bachelorette party weekend much justice! Yes we look like we are having so much fun, but we really were having a blast! We even decided that we need to schedule a yearly getaway for just us girls, rather than waiting for bachelorette's or big birthdays!

My sweet sister in law Sarah planned and executed this whole fanciful weekend with the help of Jess! We drove up to Phoenix and arrived at our suite at the Phoenician. By the way this suite was bigger than any apartment I had ever lived in and more luxurious than my house! Well that's not exactly true, but I am trying to help you see how fantastic this suite was! Sarah and my new cousin Dana had gotten there earlier (they live in Phx) and had set up some delicious snacks and decorated the whole place too!

Isn't that adorable?? After we seriously noshed we headed to the explore the hotel... basically we ended up at the lobby lounge (oops)

We ordered some champagne, helped Sarah heal after a snapping incident and made me do a disgustingly huge (no pun intended) blow job shot- YUCK!

We had the most delicious dinner in an underground wine cellar! After that we bar hopped, ended up hanging out with the village people (or so they thought they were), did a little pole dancing and racing around Phoenix in a huge pink golf cart!

I wish I knew what Katie saw on the dance floor to have made her make this face!

I seriously LOVE this picture... Dana is telling me to step aside so she can show me how it's done!

It's been forever...

I am awarding myself the worst blogger award this year! I have just really had so many new things happening in life that I have lost touch with the blogging bit! I still LOVE reading everyone's blogs, however composing my own has been too much for this gal... until now!

I am going to try to catch you up on life! Well as I said a lot has happened... you know, becoming a wife, going on honeymoons and getting a new job! Can you all forgive me now? I've decided to start with the wife thing, since that is the most fun AND I have a lot of fabulous pictures to go with it

Let's talk Bridal Shower...

It was a suprise! My mom and aunt worked very hard with the help of my bridesmaids to make it a fabulous event!
Here are some pictures...

My lovely bridesmaids!
Sarah- my friend who just so happens to be my sister in law
Jess- my newest friend
Krissy- my lovely grade school... never have to explain anything- she just gets it!
Shelley- my friend since college... we have so many life experiences together!
Katy- my lovely cousin

The lovely ladies and I!
My aunt had been collecting everything bridal ever since Troy and I became engaged... at this time I was only wearing half of it. Let's just say she was super excited and spent a lot of time in the bridal aisles!!!

My auntie, my mom and my grandma! The sneaky ladies behind the whole thing!

There were games and LOTS of fun! This was my favorite! My friend Tina had to win with her Vegas Bride look! Total side note... her and her husband found out they were pregnant the day of the shower! They are due in September and I can't wait to meet their little bambino!!!

There were also LOTS of presents, which apparently I suck at opening! It took me forever to get through them all! Shelley and Krissy actually started preopening them for me. They would take the card off and tell me who it was from. Apparently you arent supposed to read the card before you open the present at these events because it takes too long! Who knew?

My aunt even got Troy a little something, something the next day at family dinner! Yep that is a pig thing that really oinks! This next picture is my favorite because it is my older brother Jon taking a drink and he looks a bit disgusted by the whole thing!
