flogger stalker

so...my friend amanda created a blog. yes, you should read it because:
  1. i like her
  2. she's awesome
  3. she reads yours.

since she is now admitting to her stalker status, i do think she should be invited to the Flogger event. now, since she's not an actual Flogger, i vote we upgrade her to Flogger Stalker status, and give her an honorary invite.

thank you, thank you.

slacker girl

i've been slacking - big time on the blog front.

this is just gonna be a quick update - as i really don't have much to report.

i've lost 7 of my 13 honeymoon pounds without really trying. i'm half-assing the entire attempt at the moment, which means i don't go completely overboard, but i'm not really trying that hard either. i miss my drive behind it...

on a positive note, daniel and i did find a place to live in frederick. on a negative note, i still don't know when i'll be starting work. haha.

this coming weekend is another dmb weekend...my last of the year. i decided to play the responsible card and bail on the trip to the gorge, though it completely made me the giddiest girl just a few months ago. but the expense of moving and of all the awesome things i wanna buy for the new place make me think that spending another $700 on flights to see a band i'll have seen 40 times after this weekend is probably not the smartest thing to do.

i also think this weekend will be the last time i see angela for who knows how long. her new job starts monday, and i'll still be down here in crapmond, so i'm not sure what that means. our little audit family sure is changing...

married life is happy life, though.

i haven't been sleeping well. i used to be the girl that could lay down and would be snoring loudly in about 45 seconds. no joke. i now toss and turn, and look at the clock for at least one hour every night, and a lot of times, i'll fall asleep, but then be wide awake and stare at the clock for close to 2 hours during the night. anyone else do this? or any idea why it suddenly happened? i blamed it on hawaii first...but i've been back for over a week now. and i don't feel like i haven't adjusted back to the time change, so i dunno. stress? all the change? who knows?

EDIT: ang asked me if i wanted to attend the blogger meet up thingy in cleveland with her. i figure that could only be answered with a yes.

i'm baaaaaaaaack!

did you guys miss me? silly question - of course you did. i'm so excited to read everyone's updates...i'm way behind.

okay, 1st things 1st. the wedding went really well. we had a bit of a rain scare, i hated my hair, things weren't going super easy, but in the end it all fell into place, and i think the wedding turned out super nice. the setting was really pretty. i'm anxiously awaiting our professional pics and to see more wedding pics in general - i've just seen a few snapshots that people took.

the honeymoon was perfect. i loved hawaii. we stayed at the marriott at waikiki beach and the hotel was super nice, and the staff really attentive. that was one of our favorite beaches. i was so proud of daniel for getting into the ocean, too! he doesn't really know how to swim, so the water typically makes him a little nervous, but he did really well. i showed him some floating techniques, and we played in the water a lot. we really enjoyed that. we took a lot of things in - the dole plantation, a luau at the polynesian cultural center, the north shore, the windward side of the island. the thing you guys should be proud of is our hike up diamond head. it was CRAZY. i was so disgusting at the end - but i'm really proud of us for sticking to it.

we got in late yesterday evening, and switching back to eastern time has been killer.

as for the weight gain, i weighed in this morning 13 lbs heavier than i did on my wedding day. yes, 13. can you believe that? ughhhh. but it's back on track today. we ate A LOT of good food while we were gone, and had ice cream almost every day. i was anticipating a bad gain.

okay, so i'm obsessed with big brother, and watched the 5 episodes that have aired so far last night when i got in. does anyone else watch it?

okay, i'm off to read the updates - it'll take me a few hours, i'm sure.

i'll leave you with some pics! and if you're interested, you can view all of my honeymoon pics here: pictures and more pictures and a few wedding pics here.

just a few more hours...

can you believe the wedding is in 2 days? i can't.

i also can't believe that i'm sick...yuck. it's this sore throat-earache-coughing-stuffy-fever funk. dunno what it is, just know that it sucks. i left work at 6 last night, headed to the hotel, fell asleep at 6:30, ate a baked potato at 8, back to sleep at 9, and slept until 6:30. insane. my meds are helping a little.

basically anything that could've gone wrong with the wedding plans has gone wrong this week. i think we've got everything sorted out now - just hope it doesn't fall apart on friday.

i've eaten healthily this week - hope i don't gain too much while i'm on my honeymoon.

not sure when i'll get to update again - it may be after the honeymoon! i'll get some awesome pics to share with ya, though!!!

leaving work in 3 hours - and i won't be returning until the 22nd! woo hoo!

ms cranky pants

i'm cranky and stressed. i have nothing nice to say, but i did want to share a few pics from the weekend. i was less cranky and stressed then.

we were looking super cute in our red, white, and blue on the 4th

poppaw was a grilling machine

i'm working on the bad mood.
in weight loss news, i was down 1.5 this past week. not bad considering the junk food i ate at camp (think smores).
wedding's in 4 days - one ray of light in this craptastic day!
hope you're all feeling happier than i!
