I'm Baaack!

Hello lovelies! Did you miss me? I certainly missed all of you. Last week was so crazy, what with the wedding and everything and then this week, my hubby and I went off the grid for our honeymoon (we just went to San Antonio, but we turned off our phones and didn't check Facebook for 4 whole days... except when I sneaked it while Matt was sleeping, shh, don't tell).

I have a ton of pictures to share, but I haven't gotten the ones from the wedding yet, so I want to wait to show the honeymoon pics till after I've shared the weddings pics. Keeping it all in order, ya know? 

I have some really funny Fess Ups from the week before the wedding, when I had total Bride Brain. I would've lost my head last week if it wasn't attached to my neck. It seems to be coming back now though. 

So here we go.

Friday evening, after spending all day setting up for the reception, I went home to take a shower and get ready for the Rehearsal Dinner. I was out of the shower and mostly dressed before I went to apply my deodorant and discovered that I had only managed to shave one of my armpits while I was in the shower.

Also Friday evening, I was getting ready for the Rehearsal dinner, I had to dry my hair. Once I was finished, I flipped the vent hood switch on the wall to turn off the dryer. When that didn't work, I flipped the switch back to where it had been and tried the switch next to it. That switch turned out the light in the bathroom. At this point, I was getting frustrated. After all, I'd never had any trouble turning off the hair dryer before! I flipped the light switch back on and tried the vent switch again before I realized that if I wanted to turn off the hairdryer, I would need to slide the switch on the dryer's handle into the "Off" position.

On Saturday morning, my sweet friend Amanda Jo was working on my hair. She did something goofy with it, just joking around, and I kinda laughed and said, "No, I don't like that." She continued to joke with me (and I knew she was joking), and I freaked out a little. (I yelled, "PANICKING, STOP!!!!)

While waiting for my cue to come out of the dressing room, my aunt (also the pianist) asked me to keep an eye on my cousin (also the flower girl), so that I could keep her (my cousin) calm so she wouldn't mess up her dress. To entertain her, I asked what her favorite song was. I spent the last 5 minutes of my single life singing songs from The Sound of Music.

On Tuesday night, Matt and I were sitting in bed and I just started bawling because I was sad that the wedding is over. I was like, "What do we do now???" And my husband sweetly answered, "Be married! Have fun! Hang out with other married couples and have fahncy din-nah pahtees." I think that just might have been one of the sweetest things he has ever said to me.

Aww, I think you're husband (yay!) sounds like the sweetest. That's what us married folks do, that's for sure. Throw fahncy dinnah pahties ;)

I was really thinking about you last weekend and so it was fun to hear a few tidbits from your day. I saw a couple pictures on Amanda Jo's blog and you looked beautiful!

I think the hairdryer story was my favorite... and what you did for hte last five minutes of singledom. Super funny.

You never fail to crack me up, Allison. Thanks for playing and CONGRATULATIONS!
