Red, White & Blue I Do's!!!!

So many of you have heard me go on and on about the wedding Marcus and I were in that was both a military wedding and red, white and blue themed. The event itself was two weekends ago. I aplogize for the delay in blogging about it, but I needed a little time to seperate myself from the event. Anyway, after much anticipation I give you this:

Words (and pictures) really cannot begin to describe it all. I have done my best to provide a well-rounded view of the weekend via photos and captions and you can check them out here. Be sure to check back on that album in a few days because I'll be adding some of Jenny's pics when I get it to work. In the meantime, here's a list of things to pay close attention to while glancing over the pics:

  1. The crappy quality of my manicure and pedicure (particularly noticeable in the pedicure close-up) and they were not cheap!

  2. The bride's bouquet in addition to my own.

  3. The flowers on the guys uniforms (and you are actually not supposed to put flowers on them)

  4. My final hairdo - not what was expected and did not survive the night.

  5. The setup of the Elks Lodge

  6. And the many other random, wonderful, over the top greatness that made the event complete.

Working Girl!

So to prove to some wonderful friends back in Albany that I am making full use of some goodies I received I give you:

A big thank you to you and you for these wonderful gifts that are both practical and help me be environmentally friendly!

Also, to prove I haven't completely lost my creative now that I'm in the real world, I decided I couldn't live with the boring string I was given to display my name badge. So, I decided to reach back into the depths of my craft skills several years and made myself a nice little hemp item to show I'm a VA employee:

Oh, in case you're wondering it says I'm an "Administrative Officer" whatever that means . . .

Wedding Season

So, as most of you know, this is the summer of weddings for me: three in the span of five weeks to be exact. Two of these joyous occasions have already passed. I won't actually post pics of the happy couples on my blog (you know seeing as how that might be weird since it's not their blog and all). But if you're interested in seeing two of the world's most beautiful brides you can check out the Weiss-Spagnoli Wedding and the Jones-McTeer Wedding.

For those of you waiting on the edge of your seats, the most patriotic wedding happens just a week from Saturday. I know officially know how my hair and nails will look. All I can say is it's everything we've ever imagined. Don't worry, the event will be fully documented.

Oh, on a related note, two out of the three brides for this summer are pregnant for there nuptials (you can guess as to who). Combine that with the news that the wife of one of Marcus's close friends is pregnant and my cousin is expecting means the summer of weddings will be followed by the fall of baby showers. I hate being this age . . . all these weddings and babies. To all reading this not already in one of these scenarios, make the madness STOP!!!!!

New Place!

So with the exception of a few more pictures to hang on the wall and containers to put back in storage, Marcus and I are all moved into our new place. As I promised several individuals, that means it's time to see some pics. You can see the pre, during, and post move pictures here, but I figured I'd share my two favorite pieces of the new place:

our beautiful new tv and:

and the cubed bookcase thing. I love those! I will also point out that being the not so great photographer I am these photos do not do the new place justice. So, I am demanding that those interested enough to read this blog and look at the pictures MUST come and see the place in person. I mean come one, we even have an actual guestroom and comfortable couch!
