Wedded Bliss!

I have pictures from the wedding from friends and family but that will just have to wait...if you're dying to see some check my sister's blog.

The wedding was really great. It was so busy but I loved it. It rained on and off throughout the course of the day which I thought was perfect...another bride crying outside of the temple disagreed. Her poor husband probably thought she'd be happy enough just to be marrying him...nope...the rained ruined HER day...dumb schmutz. A nice man in the temple stepped on my dress and ripped the back (Adam stepped on it while we were dancing and ripped part of the front...I thought my mom aka master seamstress was going to die). I messed up during the ceremony...and again during the ring ceremony...I guess it's good I put my own little touch on things though. Everything was so so great...even though I only got to talk to people I rarely see (but whom I care about) for a few minutes.

The honeymoon was amazing. Prince Edward Island is the most beautiful place ever! There is a lot of forest, farming, and beach (rocky, cliffs, or sandy). It was a little foggy and rained a little the first two days there but it was sunny and mid 70's most of the time. We canoed, hiked, ate tons of seafood, played/swim at the beaches, went on lighthouse and distillery tours, visited a "haunted" mansion that we left early because I'm a chicken, and much much more. It was so fun!

Married life so far is wonderful. Adam is the nicest guy around and keeps doing chores and making dinner and such to prove the bad husband stigma wrong. It is so fun to talk and laugh and not have to leave each other everynight. Things aren't without there problems though...while the relationship is complete perfection...shish has been hitting the fan along the homefront.

For a while our sprinklers weren't working and our lawn was dying. They came on last night for the first time...the city finally turned on our neighborhood's exterior water. Luckily, I got our jungle lawn mowed just a couple hours before the sprinklers came on. Our yard is small but we've never mowed the lawn (because we figured the HOA would...wrong). So after it got to be about a foot long and was sprouting...I caved and borrowed my parents lawnmower. It took several passes but I finally conquered the backyard.

Our AC isn't working so our home's temperature is around 85 most the time...which sucks. I've only cooked a few times because using the stove or oven just makes things that much hotter. We sleep on the floor in the living room (the coolest room in the house) and will continue to do so until we get the AC fixed...hopefully this week.

Adam's parents went in on a washer and dryer for our wedding gift. They were delivered last week but don't fit in our darn laundry closet...they will fit but the door frame narrows the opening too much...so we'll need to the the dryer in sideways over the washer and behind the frame...make sense? Who cares. Hopefully this will work and we can avoid cutting into our wall.

We have 2.5 bathrooms. The only toilet with a kit in the tank is on the main floor in the half bath. The two upstairs aren't functional yet. It's an easy fix (hopefully) for someone who knows how to do it.

Everything else is pure joy and sunshine though. Life is good and I'm loving having such a rad husband around.

We haven't set up the internet or tv yet...comcast isn't in EM so we're choosing between dish and direct tv...suggestions? Anyhow...blogging might be limited as our internet is lacking.

Darrin says he can fix your toilets and possibly the washer/dryer and AC when we're up next week if you can wait that long. If not, go right ahead! I will say, he works MUCH cheaper than another repair dude though. ;) Glad you enjoyed the honeymoon; I'm sure it was beautiful and am anxiously awaiting photos. As for your TV--I pretty much loath all dish companies and have yet to enjoy the services ANY of them provide (maybe it's different for you folk up north), but people here get rid of them like they're the plague here. Cable's just better. Stupid HOAs...I pretty much hate them...ALL of them.

@ Aliese: We aren't paying any a repair guy...I'm WAY to cheap for that. Adam's dad and uncles are going to come help this week hopefully. The AC line needs to be charged with freon so unless Darrin has a charger we'll need Adam's unlce to do that. If they don't come this week though you guy might be spending part of your week cooking to death at our house while helping us with the other stuff. You should probably come either way and see the digs anyway.

I'm so happy for you guys!! Sounds like the wedding was awesome. I'm sorry about all the house crap. That's kinda the downfall of owning your own home though, right? I'm still jealous anyway. As far as TV goes, we have direct TV but we feel like we get charged a lot more than my cousin does who's hubby works for dish network. I'd say go with dish. P.s. That is SO freaking funny that you have relatives in Millville. I was pretty sure no one else knew it existed. What are their names? Even funnier that you met my crazy uncle! hahahaa! Glad he saved you though =)
