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.
