last night was so nice. joe was napping when i got home from work, so i started making dinner. i haven’t cooked in a while (joe normally does since he gets home before me), so i really enjoyed it. my phone rang as i was peeling potatoes, and it was joe trying to find me. i thought i had made enough noise getting my pots out to wake the dead! last night we had mashed potatoes, corn, baked chicken (for joe) and apple pie. i haven’t made a pie in a while. i think joe was impressed. 🙂

while we were eating, we watched the season premiere of gilmore girls. it was pretty good. i’m so sad about luke and lorelei breaking up though. after that, we watched the braves smash the mets 12-0. then we got to enjoy some quality time together. that was really nice. 😉 definitely one of my favorite nights. and tonight, my hubby is taking me out to dinner. yay!

the honeymoon, part 2

on thursday, we headed across the river to harvard. what a beautiful campus. we felt smarter just by being there. we walked around the entire campus looking for the big “harvard” sign we were sure was there. we never did find it. we did, however find one of many big libraries.

the honeymoon, part 1

and now, as if you don’t have *enough* pictures to look at, i have our honeymoon pictures and story.

we flew into boston on monday, and, after spending an hour on the tarmac, got a cab to head to our hotel. when we arrived, the desk clerk told us he didn’t have our reservation. we had booked it online through expedia, and apparantly expedia didn’t pass our information along. while joe talked to him, i called my parents and had them fax our hotel info. we got it worked out and, after we mentioned being on our honeymoon, were upgraded to the top floor (where the rooms are about $100 more a night then we paid), the gold crown floor, where we could have our breakfast delivered to our room every day.

we spent most of tuesday at faneuil hall. it was a large marketplace, and i had fun going from store to store and kiosk to kiosk. we had a caricature of us drawn, and bought most of our souvenirs. it was nice to get that out of the way.

professional wedding pictures

we picked up our professional wedding pictures on our way to ryan’s wedding last friday. it was great to see james, our photographer, again, and to finally see our pictures. he did a fabulous job. i’m so excited to share them with everyone. i thought i’d post some of my favorites. i hope you guys don’t mind looking at a lot of pictures, because i had a lot of favorites. 🙂

it is so nice to be up and around again. i was in bed all day yesterday with a *terrible* sinus migraine. i had to leave a meeting i was covering monday night early because i was starting to feel really sick, and yesterday morning it hit me full force. it was excrutiating when i was laying down, and getting up made it worse, so my trips out of bed were few and far between. i slept most of the day because, thankfully, it didn’t hurt when i wasn’t awake. hehe. joe came home with a card from him and the cats. awww. what a sweet hubby!

so now i have a lot to catch up on today. i have a bunch of errands to run, including getting my new driver’s license (i keep forgetting the dds is closed on mondays), before i roll into work late this afternoon and gear up for my late meeting that will, with 20 agenda items, inevitably run very, very long. and of course, it would fall on the night that the biggest loser starts. man, i am such a reality tv addict. hehe. have a good one!

monday, monday

we had a busy but fun weekend. we had a really nice visit with my parents and grandparents on saturday, and we had fun last night with joe’s family too. his sister, rachel, surprised us by framing some of our wedding pictures. she picked some really good ones, and i can’t wait for joe to hang it up. maybe he’ll do that tonight while i’m working (hint hint!). 🙂

joe’s parents gave us a beautiful wood wine bottle holder with cork from turning leaf wood art with our names and wedding date carved on it. the turning leaf is a fabulous store in downtown blue ridge, ga. with all sorts of baskets and wood carvings. they are absolutely gorgeous. rachel got a wine bottle holder for her wedding, so i was hoping we’d get one too.

now, i’m off to get my new driver’s license, change my name on my accounts at the bank and apply for my new social security card. there is so much to do after you get married! i also need to find a birthday present for joe. i had an idea in mind, but i think i’m going to get that for him for hanukkah. it’s always harder to buy presents for men. women are so much easier. wish me luck!
