Just incase the kids get bored I thought I should give them something to do. I ended up photocopying...

Professional Photos are HERE!
We received our professional wedding pictures on Thursday. I am excited to share them with you guys. I am VERY happy with how they turned out; however, I am not impressed with the balloon release pictures. Our guests got better shots then the photographer.
PS - the WBC uploader is acting up; I will upload the rest of the reception pictures later ;)
THE BABY BUG
I've been BIT bad!
Jon and I have been discussing having children for a long time. Planning the wedding, I was absolutely terrified to get pregnant. Jon never understood why I was so afraid since we were getting married; I just didn't want to be a pregnant bride.
Well, now I want to have a baby so bad. Is that crazy? We have not even been married for 2 weeks and I have been bit by the baby bug. We always joked about having a honeymoon baby, but I really hope we do!
We have been together for 7 years, living together for 5. I just turned 25 in January and Jon will be 30 in July. I absolutely want to be a young mom and Jon drank from the fountain of youth so he's not aging anytime soon.
Has anyone else felt this way?
BTW: the picture is my baby cousin, Eve. She is 7 months old.
Las Vegas, Hoover Dam & Red Rock Canyon
Jon and I had a BLAST in Las Vegas!! You girls were right there was SO much to do, I am so glad we went. I only put up a few pictures because I have over 300!
We stayed at the Flamingo; it is such an old Vegas hotel. It was directly across from Ceasers Palace and right in the middle of the strip. Perfect walking location.
It was so funny because we were both still on east coast time, so we would wake up at 7AM PST and walk around all morning, hit the pool at like 10AM, get ready, dinner and go out. That was basically our routine everyday. We seen three shows while we were there. Terry Fator, The Beatles LOVE Cirque Du Soleil, and a comedian in our hotel, Nathan Burton.
I recommend Terry Fator and the Beatles show to EVERYONE if they plan on going to Vegas. Terry was SO funny and you are allowed to take pictures and video his show (yeah, I was pissed because I didn't take my camera) and the Beatles show is simply AMAZING. There is no other word to describe how good it is.
On Friday, we rented a car and drove to the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon. We were supposed to drive down to Fremont Street however someone (cough JON cough) was hungover from the night before and needed a nap LOL.
Jon and I definitely enjoyed ourselves all week!
MY Bachelorette Party!
SPA / dinner date
My MOH and BMs threw a spa day and dinner date for my bachelorette party the Tuesday before our wedding (5/18/2010). It was soooooo nice and I LOVED getting pampered just a few days before the big day. The girls prepaid for a 60 minute massage and pedicure for me. The spa gave my MOH all kinds of deals because there were almost 20 people getting a massage, a pedicure or a manicure.
After the spa, everyone met at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and drinks. I LOVE that place so much and it was right down the street from the spa. I received lots of cute (and sexy) lingerie to take away on our honeymoon!
It was so much fun!
MY Wedding Present
Tiffany Keys heart key necklace!
Jon surprised me in Las Vegas with my FIRST little blue box from Tiffany's. I was so excited! He got a necklace from the new Tiffany Key collection - the heart key necklace with a diamond. It is so beautiful.
Our Extended Honeymoon
Some photos from our house at Pymatuning Lake. Tucker had so much fun laying out in the yard. We had a nice time; the weather was fine (humid) and it rained on the way home; so that was OK. FMIL had a cookout on Sunday when we got there.
i'm back and MARRIED!
wow it's been a crazy week!
Hey girls! I am back and MARRIED! Our wedding went absolutely perfect, it only rained while we were indoors! Everything was perfect and exactly how I imagined. I can not wait to get our professional pictures back. I will upload some non-pro sneak peaks!
Las Vegas was amazing - Jon and I had such a fun time. I received my wedding present while we were there and it was well worth the wait - he surprised me with a Tiffany's key necklace.
We got home on Saturday and went to Jon's parents house in Pymatuning Lake with our puppy Tucker. We were exhausted and it was nice to relax for the Memorial Day weekend.
I will post pictures from our spa day / bachorelette party and rehearsal this week.
ALSO, I am going through of all of the leftover / partial used and new wedding items. I will post the items for sale.
Thanks for all of your positive wishes and congrats.
WEDDING DAY TODAY!
I can't believe it's finally here!
AHHHHH! I can't believe I am getting married today. It's finally here after 18 months of planning. =) Pittsburgh is supposed to have scattered rain showers; so I need prayers!
Hair and make-up will start at 10AM.
I have not been able to post pictures from my bachelorette party on Tuesday and rehearsal last night; I will when I return from Las Vegas next week!
Good luck to all the WBC brides getting married today also. I hope your day is everything you dreamed for and more.
