I’m married!

Folks, I have officially survived the wedding and this time, I actually remember the ceremony and reception.

It was a blast, by the way, despite the wacky DJ with absolutely NO emcee skills and overcast skies before the ceremony. I didn’t stutter or choke up during the vows, neither of my dresses malfunctioned, Chris and I survived our first dance (a waltz to Journey’s Open Arms because our #1 choice Seal’s Kiss From A Rose was, er, too quick for ballroom n00bs like us), and we have a heap of really great personalized messages and artistic scribblings on the scratch off dragon-shaped cards we placed with each Chinese take out favor box complete with nifty red souvenir chopsticks.

I am not even that bummed that we didn’t get more than one bite of cake that night.

Okay, so I am a wee bit bummed. We ordered a huge fruity sponge cake with whipped frosting and fresh fruit from the Taiwanese bakery and five additional regular sized decadent dessert cakes from Publix for the reception. Beyond a bite apiece of the white-frosted chocolate mini wedding cake we cut for the photos, neither of us got any more baked yumminess that night, LOL. I swear that all of the cake was gone before I could blink.


Wedding pics will start trickling into my inbox in a week or two, but I’ll see if I can get a few out to the blog from the Keys this week. No guarantees though! I only have my Treo 650 for web access this week.

And in case you were all wondering, yes, I will return to regular blog posts next Monday with a post-mortem on my wedding planning and budgeting experience and an overview of my next workout and nutrition plan.

Until then, have a great week!

    My best to you both.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your pictures. :claplow: :claphigh:

    It’s been a long time since I commented…I miss the math test.

  4. Anniversaries exist so that married people get to eat the cake they didn’t get to eat during their wedding receptions.

    Or at least, that’s what they are for at my house 🙂

    Wooooo ooo! Yay for the Newly Marrieds!:love::love::claplow::claphigh::mrgreen:

  5. Best wishes on your marriage! Your wedding cake must have been awesome. Perhaps, as already suggested, a smaller cake can be recreated for your first anniversary? I look forward to seeing the pictures!


  6. Congratulations!!!! :claplow: I’m glad the wedding went well and that you are happy. Too bad about the cake eating, but less on the lips means less on your hips, right? Have a beautiful honeymoon and I wish you married bliss!

  7. CONGRATS, MAGGIE! The DJ was hilarious, and overcast skies mean FABULOUS outdoor pictures! As for the cakes…you can always reorder them in smaller/BFL-portioned sizes. I’m sooooooooooooo happy for you!!!!

  8. Congratulation dearie!! May you have many happy years and wonderful memories! :claplow:

  9. CONGRATS MAGGIE! I WANT PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :claphigh:

    We didn’t get any of our wedding cake either, minus what we “fed” to each other in the traditional “shove it in the face episode” (which we didn’t). my mom saved the top for u like your supposed to do for some odd reason and have on your first anniversary (it was SO stale, it was inedible – so if they do that for you, use it for your 1 month anniversary instead.) :mrgreen:
