It has been a wild and crazy ride since I last wrote in my blog. Hopefully things will mellow after our move and we will be less stressed and get on with the baby making :)
The wedding-was wonderful! We had two hours of sunshine for our outdoor ceremony on April 8 and I like to think that is my late grandfathers and my husbands’ grandparents’ gift to us, which to be honest was the best gift I could ask for. :) We had everyone we wanted come to our ceremony and it was beautiful and we had some amazing pictures, everything flowed beautifully. On April 9 the reception, it was STRESSFUL and I think my parents and grandmothers had anxiety attacks amongst other things. The reception too was wonderful, there were a few things that I would have changed (like the DJ) but otherwise perfect and we have some amazing pictures and memories with some wonderful people. (As soon as I get my pictures uploaded to my computer/ (it was locked inaccessible for almost 2 weeks!) I will post some of my favs.) My parents are superheroes and my best Ruby and her husband-the best friends I could ask for (they did an incredible amount for the wedding and for us and they deserve medals) :)! On another note we got some beautiful/incredibly useful presents and are incredibly thankful!
The vakay!- Was amazingly relaxing, we stayed in a really nice bed and breakfast and loved not being constrained to time or a schedule! We did what we wanted, when we wanted and enjoyed every minute! Not often we get to get away for a bit! A week was great! We also appreciated having the extra money from our wedding to get to do more things. :) (Pics will be posted as well!)
The after wedding- getting back to the swing of things, at first sad everything was over but at the same time thankful we don’t have to deal with the vendors, or paying people large sums of money anymore! We also are moving because we refuse to pay our enormous paycheck consuming rent anymore, I mean who wouldn’t? We decided on Fairfax the Fairlakes area although we are having a hard time finding something reasonably priced, with the amount of room we want, with a shuttle to the metro, and that doesn’t have completely trashed ratings on apartment ratings.com. We wanted a townhouse or condo but with the wedding bills in addition to our other bills not completely paid off we are probably going to end up at an apartment again. Not ideal but what can you do.
Hopefully we can move to SC in a few years and buy a place down there!! Plus we want to save money to go on an actual honeymoon (ie our Alaskan cruise :) :) :) ). So right now we are packing and packing and packing in anticipation of not being crazy stressed in July and I am studying for my CBP test at the end of June (or relearning what I learned in my class in April being the class and the test are over 2 months apart)!
The baby making-We are trying went to a new OB/GYN that my friend recommended and she was wonderful, she reassured us and I know I feel better and normal. Nothing yet but we are optimistic and trying (being the operative word) to relax and not make it stressful (even though it’s really hard not to think about it when you want it really bad). Plus we had a setback with not being able to try for a few weeks due to my husband not feeling well at all and having an allergic reaction to something (we have yet to figure out). He is doing better now thank goodness and we can continue, just in time. :)
