hitched!

it's not so much that i've been too busy to blog...i've basically just been tired and lazy!


the wedding was everything i'd ever imagined and more...family, friends, beach, sun, tequila...check!i'm just basking in the post-wedding glow and taking 2010 as it comes. nice and easy :)


a little picture recap of the nuptual week in case you're not on facebook...

we landed in paradise at the Cabo Surf Hotel....had one day of rain..and then perfect weather the rest of the trip.
the view from our room wasn't too bad.

the week started with a surprise bachelorette party that involved
playing the bongoes
big margaritas

and a dance party at Cabo Wabo complete with waboriticles
all the partying was surely remembered early the next morning when we embarked on a 4 hour snorkel/catamaran cruise with the whole crew of 40 people.....good times! especially for those that were a bit toooooo hungnover, i mean seasick.
but we saw the dolphins and whales!


stopped for lunch and a snorkel....
posing at the rocks

wedding day came quickly.... and was just as i had imagined





getting ready with the girls was half the fun!

husband and wife :)

the sun set and the moon rose during cocktail hour

time to party!

father daughter dance to "Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead- dad and I used to dance to this song every night after dinner when i was in grade school. my dad can cut a rug!
everyone danced all night long until we were too tired to dance no more....

all in all, we just felt so lucky and happy to be married surrounded by all of our family and friends who had come so far to be with us on the big day....THANK YOU EVERYONE! (turns out, as i learned from the wedding speeches, that our blogs are quite the source of amusement from the extended family....hi family!! love you!)
that's all for now... i'll surely post some more (and bore you to death with wedding babble) once we get our wedding photographers pics. ...up next- back to the real world! ironman training in full effect! happy 2010!

I am a little late to the show here, but I have to say, in the picture of you and the bongo player at the bachelorette party - you appear to have freakishly long arms.

Looks like it was a fantastic wedding. I hope you are training as you read this.
