The Happy Couple is Back!

We are back from the wonderful Caribbean and had a great time. Lots of fun in the sun with rum drinks. We loved spending time with the family and now little Avery knows exactly who Aunt Kim is and can recognize me. The islands are a little touristy for our tastes so we think that our next destination would be a cold weather place.

The wedding was wonderful for us. For others the evening ended like this:

We are working on getting the house set up and things organized. I still haven't packed any of my stuff so it is a process. I hope my landlord from the old place doesn't throw my stuff out into the neighbors yard (or do I?!). Pepper is adjusting to not being the only girl in the house. She is not taking it that well but we are working around it. We get our new mattress tomorrow and our furniture on Friday. We should be sleeping well by Friday night.

Thanks to all who have kept up with the blog. It has been a great to include everyone in the process. I am not sure what or how long we will be updating but will put another post up as soon as we have some more info to share.

Home Stretch!

Only a few more days! It hard to believe that it is almost here.

We have the marriage license thanks to the extremely irritating government workers. You would think that they would be a little nicer but I guess that is the government for you. Don't even get me started on the whole name change thing.

Today we met with the site coordinator. Everything is coming together. We are frantically working on the favors. After some glitches and hiccups we are back on track. That will be our little surprise for you at the wedding!

In addition to getting ready for the wedding we are ALL getting ready for the cruise. We are making the last minutes preparations for the relaxing "Family Honeymoon!" Can't wait to lay on the deck and drink my fruity, umbrella drink!

Sorry for the delay in a post but I was up in the wonderful Wisconsin. I love the 80 degree days and 50's at night. It was the best weather that a girl could ask for. Kalena's graduation was great and we had a superb graduation celebration for Livi and Kalena. I have added a picture of Jack Knapp. He is sums up the whole trip...RELAXING.

If I don't get another post up before the wedding then see you on Thursday and check back sometime after June 25 to see how everything turned out.

We are now official homeowners. Very adult and a little bit scary. We signed all the paperwork today. That wasn't as bad as I had imagined. Everyone said that your hand would hurt after awhile but I was fine. I think maybe I was destined to be famous because signing autographs isn't that hard!

I am off tomorrow to visit family in Wisconsin. I can't wait to celebrate the graduations of Liv and Kalena. I will return home on Monday to work on the wedding things that are left. There is not much left to do. Yeah!

Talk to you soon!
