The Wedding Post (and the 6 weeks that followed)

HOLY TOLEDO!!!! IT'S BEEN 6 WEEKS?!?!?!?!?! Feels like just yesterday my niece was "duggying" down the aisle and my poor pops was tripping on my dress. 
YES... for those of you who couldn't make it, they surprised me with a hip-hop dancing 16 year old "duggying" down the aisle in front of me, and my poor dad (who most of you know just underwent a pretty crazy brain surgery) tripped on my dress landing on his hands and knees in front of about 100 people right after "giving me away."

Good times. :) I think it's on video somewhere... I should find that.

(Look at that handsome dude... :) I'm so lucky!)

So, we haven't found it in our budget yet to take a REAL honeymoon, because my car was just awful and kept on wanting to die so we bought a new car instead of a honeymoon. The good news is it's a "mom-car." I'm pretty happy about that. I'm definitely looking forward to using that preface. 
We did, however, get to go to Prescott last weekend for a night. Ben went golfing and I went shopping. :) I think those are two verbs we better get used to.

(PS, kudos to our awesome photographer and my new sister-in-law, Nicole Coombs!)

Mostly, we went right back to work and kinda jumped right back into the real world. Cutting coupons, planning meals for weeks at a time, arguing over whose turn it is to do the dishes... you know, the GOOD stuff. :) 

OOH! I almost forgot to mention that I got my first promotion at work. It's been a crazy couple of weeks. 60+ hours each week, and all I gotta say is I can't wait for THAT paycheck. :)

I won't bore you all too much with the gooey details, but to sum it up: 
So far, sometimes its really great and other times you just go to bed and make it better tomorrow. But we are learning a lot about each other and doing the best with what we've got.

And I couldn't ask for more.
