I'm back and I'm married!

So much has happened since last February 2010. For starters...I'm married! Wahoooooooooooooooo! It was an amazing, happy, joyous day in our lives and my next couple of posts are going to be my wedding re-cap.The countdown to our wedding went something like this:
"Oh, we've got a year, PLENTY of time!"

"Wow, six months away, better get cracking on the to-do list!"

"Seven weeks out...WHAT!? That's coming close.

"To my colleagues:"Bye! I'll see you guys in two weeks!"

Walk out to my car..."Holy crap! Only one more week until the wedding!"

The week leading up to our wedding was of the most stressful weeks of my life. One that, quite frankly, I really would not care to repeat.The only major thing left I needed to absolutely get finished were our ceremony programs. I refused to pay to have them designed, so I just whipped them up myself on Microsoft Publisher, copied it to a cd, printed out a copy and off to Staples I go. They weren't able to do it. Okay, no problem, I bought a different program on Monday, re-did the entire program and back to Staples I went. I handed everything over to a different person. I explained how I wanted it to be and was told, "No problem. When do you need it by?" I left feeling much better. Cross this one off the list and off to the next.

Tuesday came and went like the wind but it was also a day I was anticipating as my brother and his family were finally coming to the Philadelphia area to stay with my parents. I was headed there on Wednesday to have a girls afternoon with my four year old niece. Wednesday morning I got ready to head to my parents with Bride t-shirt and all on. The week prior i made a small care package to be waiting for my niece, Mira at my parent's house. Her t-shirt said 'flower girl'. I cute would we look trapsing around town in our Bride and Flower Girl shirts? I ring the doorbell to my parent's home only to have my brother, John open it with a big smile. Once he saw my shirt, just starting cracking up and called for Mira. And there we were, Aunt and Niece, two peas in a pod ready to tackle our DAY. OF. FUN.

Our first stop? ColorMeMine

Mira is obsessed with all things Snow White and princess. As we scoured the pottery shelves of the vast possibilities for our creativeness, Mira picked her project. A princess hand mirror. We scoured some more only to find, yes, that's right, a Snow White figurine. My eyes got wide when I saw it. I showed Mira my find and her eyes grew wider than mine. We sat down to paint and talk about life in general. Okay, so we really just talked about princess stuff (life in general) and about how I was send Mira not only her mirror, but the Snow White figurine that I was working on. Good thing I adore her!

By the time we were ready to leave the pottery store, our bellies were panging for some food. Mira prompted responded to my, "What do you think you would like for lunch?" question with a firm and matter of fact, "Noodles!" Her favorite food. Off to the OliveGarden. Okay, not the coolest place we could've gone but one thing I did know was they had noodles and lots of them!

Lunch was DEEEEEE-LISH! One quick stop to get a cookie and back to my parent's we went.

Stay tuned for Wedding Program Hell.
