Looks Like I am Married.

So Im married now. All the countdown, all the preparation. All the tears, all the worry, and now Im married. Married life is great. Being engaged was so.....gotta do this gotta do this, oh better go do that, oh shoot I forgot to do that. Now...we just chill and its nice. We still have another reception in Standrod on the 18th, which I hope all of you will be attending..right right???

What am I supposed to say after being married............

Know that I love it.

Know that it feels a bit weird sometimes, and I start to look around and make sure I am really alive and living and not in some freaky dream.

Im already like an old married person.
Married people are old, have babies. Im just 20.
But Im happier than I ever have been.


We travelled all over the place. We first stayed in Provo, then the next day drove to Vegas. In Vegas we stayed from Sunday to Wednesday. On Wednesday Brad's brother Mike was married to Janeen in St. Geroge. From there we went to Solana Beach California. We visited beaches, and watched fireworks at the Del Mar County fair, visited the San Diego Temple, then drove on to Magic Mountain Six Flags. Wow! That was so fun.

You know because Brad is five we showed up at 10:30 AM (opening) and didnt leave the park until 10 PM (closing). You know we went on our favorite rollercoasters over 5 times each. You know I bought 2 slushy lemonades, 1 dippin dots, 2 panda express meals all for a total of 42.97. And you know we brought in a crushed waterbottle and then uncrushed it and filled it full of nice germy drinking fountain water, which is....warm.

But my favorite ride was Goliath.

Maybe it was because of that massive drop that puts you right into a tunnel. Maybe it was because it didnt go upside down but rather sideways a lot. Maybe it was because I had the worst headache all day long and it didnt rattle my brain. Maybe its because at one part all the blood is at your feet and you struggle not to black out. Im not sure. But it was my favorite.

Brad's favorite was tatsu. I hated it. I like feeling secure. I know that electronically something could go wrong and open all the seats and send hundreds of helpless bodies with lives they want to keep living but have to end because some 14 year old rollercoaster runner hit the wrong button. I dont want that to happen. Thats why I like sitting down happy rollercoasters. I especially like ones that have a seatbelt to secure you even more. I like those a lot. I can enjoy those. And not just frantically cling to the harness over my shoulders. But Tatsu didnt have that seat belt, and to make matters worse, if it did come undone. You are dead. No chance of survival because you are sitting down. Because really its probably the only FLYING rollercoaster ever. And its really scary. Even after six times I was still terrified of it. Terrified. My hands produced about a gallon of milk of sweat :)

Maybe Im a baby. But I dont like to feel like I am going to die when I am on my honeymoon. If anything I want to live. A lot live. Because Brad is hot and he is now my husband. And he loves tatsu and me.......Right Brad?

So six flags was a success and the 14 year old didnt push the wrong button and I lived.

We came home and it is SOOOOoooooo Nice to be home. I cleaned and arranged all day Thursday and wow it feels good not to live in chaos. We actually are liking our 2 room apartment. Strange but true. Now we just need the internet.....cuz we dont have internet would be nice. We don't even know what to get, too many options.

Anyway. I guess I did post the links to my wedding pictures...but seriously who has time for that. Here are some of my favs, there are so dont feel like i left out your fav, when really its probably my fav too, I just have trillions of favs. Trillions and billions.

I want to wait until I get the orginals because these are copyrighted from the websites. But just a little preview is still nice. This is how it feels to have 7 baby girls sitting on you. :) Some very unhappy girls. All of them are my nieces except Faith, and she is looking down my shirt...or something..
Brad got cake on my dress. I then decked him and told him it was over. That is a huge lie. Please do not believe my lies.
These are the triplets I nannied for. I love them to death. Love them. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Miss them a lot too.

Faith took off her pants and wanted to get in our 'before the reception' shots. Really, I think she looks better than Brad and I, no offense to Brad.
Tyson did such a great job at our reception and I love having the pictures to look at and try to remember every second of my reception. Complete joy, continuous smiling. Not sure that will happen ever again where I smile ALL day long. ALL DAY, and it makes your cheeks hurt.

Now, Kate with red feather photography did a splendid magnificant job at the temple. I was so pleased with the results. Estatic about the results. When I was little my dad always took us to The Roof to eat. This spot is right next to the restaurant's doors. I remember this spot so well. I always sat there and dreamed of getting married in the Salt Lake Temple. I forever wanted to be married there. Whenever we sang that temple song in Primary I thought of that spot by The Roof and remembered looking down on the temple. My photographer captured my dream with this shot :). So thanks Kate. (Ps, my dream did involve a hot guy too :)

The weather was incredibly cloudy and stormy..........but gorgeous.

The sky was incredible. I had no idea what exquiste beauty would be defined in these pictures.
Our photographer (Kate) kept I see why. The sky....was outlandishly awesome.

Sometimes we would get bored of taking pictures, so Brad would just talk to me. At one point he confessed that he is really spiderman.

It did rain! It poured!!!!! So we have this cute umbrella to save us.

I was scared to sit. Dirty my clean white sparkly dress.
But it didnt get dirty. And I love Brad.
I like to point out errors in my face, the picture or anything else, and I tried not to do that so none of you would notice the bad :).
But in conclusion I know getting married was completely the best decision I have ever made. And what even made it the greatest decision ever was that I was married in the temple to the love of my life.
He came home last night and said, "Being married is awesome". I concure. And say that to me everyday and I will make you spaghetti the rest of your life Bradley.
