Almost one year ago on (Sunday) September 5th I walked down the aisle of a beautiful stone church located in Providence, RI with a HUGE smile on my face while gazing into the eyes of the handsome guy below....I can remember that exact moment as if it were yesterday....I was beaming with excitement yet shaking with fear. I wasn’t scared to marry Steve I was scared to have everyone's eyes on me. I am not a fan of being the center of attention. :) Before the doors opened I had to ask my dad to hold onto me tightly, I honestly didn’t think I could walk. As I put one purple heel in front of the other I got into this zone, a zone I can't even explain. Everyone around me had disappeared, the only person I could see was Steve, my future husband, who was waiting for me... patiently...what an amazing feeling....thank goodness we had a videographer, I honestly love watching this moment (& all the other moments over & over...yes, I'm "that girl"!)....I will never forget our wedding day & how I felt, I will never forget the look on Steve's face & I will never forget the tiny stream of tears rolling down his cheeks as I approached him....the moment, as it should be, was perfect... :)

These 2 photos are my favorite shots (taken by guests/wedding party) by far....Steve & I dancing our 1st dance as husband & wife & posing for pictures outside (in the "abundant" sunshine-thx for the weather reminder/yearly weather coincidence Sue!) of the church before hopping on the trolley....Our 1st dance song was "Today" by Joshua Radin---The slow version---& get this, our vows were incorporated within the beginning of the song!..... & YES, it was Ellen & Portia’s 1st dance song as well! :)
Here is the live video from *Ellen*...

NOW on for our current exciting news!!! We are heading to Cocoa Beach, Florida early tomorrow morning through late Tuesday night to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary!!! We are super stoked about this!!! We are staying in the *RON JON* surf shop hotel!!! How awesome is that? SO AWESOME. :) While we are there we plan on relaxing, sun bathing, eating, drinking, dancing, site seeing & of course checking out this place---> ....Sooo as you can guess I will be signed off for a few days! I hope you all have a lovely long holiday weekend!!! HUGS!

***On a funny friend Amy sent Steve & I this email & photo (that she drew herself) the other day! HILARIOUS!!!....Luckily we won't have to worry about Earl anymore. Phew!

"Well be careful that you don’t get caught in Earl’s wind because you’ll blow away. Have Steve tie a string to your bikini just incase. It will be a twofer... relaxing day at the beach and kite flying."

PS: Shortly after we return from our trip we will be getting our 1 year wedding anniversary photos taken! Super pumped for that as well!

***Ahhh one last thing....I just have to share this bc I find it quite amusing....last year, on our wedding day a certain someone wrote a message on another certain someone's FB wall....I can't remember the exact wording but it said something along the lines of "What a lovely day for poop & pee!".....As for my readers, you might think...huh???....Let me explain...Poop & Pee aka Brown & Yellow aka the colors of a SUNFLOWER. Our wedding color scheme & accent print was Purple, black & white polka dots & sunflowers. Apparently this someone was trying to take a stab at our big day. Rude? Cruel? Jealous? Childish? I'd say so....But honestly it makes me laugh! Quite a bit actually. I LOVE SUNFLOWERS, so yah I LOVE POOP & PEE. :)

***Here's a lil something extra...these 6 new HOT songs are in my head!

1. "Shape of You" ~Jewel~

2. "Just The Way You Are" ~Bruno Mars~
3. "Just a Dream" ~Nelly~
4. "Anything Like Me" ~Brad Paisley~

5. "From A Table Away" ~Sunny Sweeney~
6. "Club Can't Handle Me" ~Flo Rida~

I believe I forgot to share this... a few Friday nights ago Steve planned a surprise date night for me! I had no idea what he had up his sleeve... we ended up going to dinner @ our favorite Japanese & sushi restaurant Yamato (which was FREE since our club card was stamped out! HA!) and then he took me to see "GREASE" the musical @ the Bradley Playhouse in Putnam, CT! How awesome is that! I knew about dinner but not about the musical. We had a blast! Of course what a great idea! I have always loved "GREASE"! The theater was sooo cute---popcorn, soda & intermission included! This is The Bradley from many many many years ago...I can't believe it's over 100 years old! I would love to go back in time when this photo below was taken...

A lil bit about The Bradley...

The Bradley Playhouse is an over 100 year-old Vaudeville Theatre in the heart of the Putnam Antiques District in the Quiet Corner of Northeastern Connecticut. It is an amateur community theatre, operated by the members of The Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut; Inc. TNECT produces seven season shows per year and several special fundraising events for The Bradley Playhouse Restoration Fund.

Now onto one of my fears....while driving down the road, well more on a highway I'd say... I am pretty freaked out about being behind these 3 images...can we say holy FINAL DESTINATION??? (1, 2 or 3---take your pick!)

Dr. Scholl's FAST FLATS! BEST INVENTION EVER! GENIUS! I must pick some up for myself! The TV commercial caught my eye the other night...


Last night Steve & I went to CVS & the grocery store. Yes in that order, we always go to CVS first to get what we can using Steve's corporate discount & then the grocery store. The point of this blog entry though is that every time we go to the grocery store Steve stands in front of the meat section & the juice/soda section for FOREVER deciding on what he wants depending on the deal. Seriously, it's like clockwork. I harass him about it every time....I can't harass him too much though bc i know he is trying to save us money by picking out what's on sale. Oooh Steve & his sales & coupons... :) Last night I just had to capture these moments while I waited for him to be done...Love you babe! HA!

@ the grocery store we picked up this oil dispenser/pourer. You know how when you go to a restaurant, especially an Italian one you get that free oil dip w/ bread as an appetizer? MMM. We sooo want to make our own! Any recipe/ingredient ideas???

@ CVS I also picked up the new "Falsies" mascara by Maybeline last night....not impressed & not a fan of the wand. Oh well, "onto the next one" as Jay Z would say... :)
