This and That: December 1

Still eating wedding candy.

Speaking of wedding candy, guess what we got today? Our wedding pictures! Woot! Chris and I spent forever (definitely my whole allotted study time for today) looking through the 895 photos Rico and Rachel sent us.

They’re so amazing (photos and Rico and Rachel). Seeing the picture’s from the day brought so many memories back, as well as showed us some things we’d totally missed. For now, we’ve got a link that won’t let us save as and password to view them online, but we’ll be getting the CD in the mail shortly and then… watch out, blog. You will be overrun with yellow and gray loveliness.

You know… more than you already are.

(Chris is going through the photos again, and he just started laughing. I asked what was so funny. He said: “This picture of you getting squirted in the face with hair spray just cracks me up!” Cute, babe.)

Oh! Just figured out how to sneak them from the online gallery. You know, sometimes I am very pleased with my knowledge of computer work arounds. It comes in handy in times like this. Also, when we want to listen to Christmas music online in the classroom and everything’s been firewalled… or so they think. 😉
Here’s just a few I’m pulling off randomly. I don’t have the time right now to go through all 895 and find my favorites again. So maybe just one or two…
… or seven… or twelve…
I just can’t stop!

Also, is anyone else doing this REVERB10 thingamajig. Sounds pretty cool. First prompt is a word that sums up your year. Mine is grace. I’ll have to explain it later, but I think I’m on board for this month long project. Let me know if you’re participating too. 🙂

Late at night…

Sometimes… when it’s really late at night like this… and I’m stuck at my laptop finishing homework or a paper… and my husband has already gone to bed… I like to just watch him sleep.


Creepy? Or cute?


He says creepy. But he says it with a smile, so I think he really finds it endearing. And I just tell him he’s adorable when he sleeps… he looks like a picture of himself as a four-year-old that I’ve seen in his mom’s photo album. 


So I don’t care if he thinks it’s creepy. I’m going to look at him every once in awhile while he sleeps. I think it’s my right as a loving wife. 


(Well, that, and making him sleep on the side of the bed that touches the wall.)

Wedding Teaser

Sheesh. This has been a long and crazy week. Work, book editing and formatting, CSET studying, birthday celebrating, sister-in-law moving. It’s 7:55p.m. and I really just want to go to sleep.

Sadly, I’ve got more of most of that stuff to do tonight. But I feel my blog is definitely suffering during this sad time in life. I haven’t been able to put up anything from the past month, but most especially, I haven’t been able to write about our beautiful wedding and honeymoon! It’s coming… it’s even a little bit in progress, and now that Chris has gone through and edited all our Hawaii photos it’s only a matter of time before I find a free couple of hours to match words with photos and get it up here.

In the meantime, we also received our wedding “trailer” a couple weekends ago. Our videographers were great. Really fun guys who worked well with our photographers, and they totally have the same aesthetic as Chris and I do. This little teaser was just what we needed to remember how special our day was!

(NOTE: If you want to listen with the music for the video, don’t forget to turn the blog music down! It’s all the way at the bottom of the page.)

Also, also, my husband has begun putting up some of our Hawaii stories on his own blog, so if you want to hear and see about our trip, you can always check out his site and give him a little comment love!
