The Best Part So Far

This whole moving process? It's a lot of work, a bit of a pain, and slightly overwhelming when you through in work and school and family and... most importantly... sleep. But it is worth every second of it, and last week, Grayson and I experienced the crowning moment of the work thusfar...

We combined all of our gift cards and returns at Target, one of the stores we had registered at, and went on the shopping spree of our lives.

I Was Pictured Out

So I have had a few friends asking me about the honeymoon lately. Everyone who has come to me knows me very well, and as such all of them want to see photos of everything we went to do.

I have surprised them all by saying that... honestly? I only took a handful of not-great pictures.

Crazy, right? I am usually a photo guru with hundreds of pictures of almost any event or vacation I attend. But no, not this time. We went out an about, we saw stuff and did stuff... but my camera was hidden away most of the time.

My theory? After the wedding and all that it entailed, I was simply DONE with pictures.

Well, okay I do have a few...

Bridal Shots

So I recently realized that I posted ONE of my bridal shots, but I have been yet to add any more.

Let me just say... taking these shots was an adventure.  Rattle snakes, wasps nests, and even a proposal at the same location - a somewhat awkward one.  But even more adventures came with the wedding day shots, which I will tell more about when I have some to show you.

I absolutely love these pictures, and they are doing just great appeasing me until the rest of the wedding shots come, so here they are!  Well... at least a few of my favorites.

I cannot wait...

My favorite time of year is coming soon. The fresh and accomplished feeling of a school class structure, the cooler temperatures, the colors coming out of the leaves, the long sleeves and cute clothing...

There is nothing on earth that beats the fresh feeling of Autumn. I think it is one of the most beautiful things this earth has to offer. I honestly get a little bit bouncy thinking about it.

I've gone insane

So, apparently it is a lot of work moving into a new home! Go figure. But hey, we finally have our internet up, and a dear friend of ours gave us an awesome computer for our wedding... so here I am.  Did you miss me?

I've actually loved settling my own place. There is a lot of joy in things like doing the dishes, when they all belong to you - or sweeping the floor, when it is YOUR floor - or doing your laundry, when it is YOUR washing machine (or your paying rent on it anyway).

Yes, there is still a lot of work to be done. I am yet to make Grayson build a fort with me out of all of our boxes and gift bags, but I do believe that will come to pass, if I have the energy.

So, you ask, WHY has Miss Lindzena gone insane? (Or more insane, it depends on how well you know me.)

The Best Honeymoon Meals

Sorry I haven't posted since I got back! We are still setting up internet at our apartment, so I can only be online occasionally right now. But it is almost back, I shall be in full flow again shortly!

In the meantime, however, I wanted to give a quick rundown of one of the most important things about vacations: the food! These were our favorite meals on the honeymoon...

Zoom - Park City

Holy crap, it was amazing. It was definitely not the cheapest of our meals on the Honeymoon, but it was worth every dang penny. This is a place we will definitely come back to on certain anniversaries and special occasions.

My Number One Wedding Tip

Another quick pre-scheduled post for all of you while I'm away on my honeymoon! I wanted to share with you the tip that absolutely saved my life throughout all of this wedding business.

I made a through To-Do List
and I got as much done early as I possibly could

Trust me when I say this; you have three days before you tie the knot? 

You want to dedicate your mind more to the thought that you are about to be tied to a guy for the rest of your life more than you want to worry about how your bridesmaids hair is going to look or if you have the right kind of flowers.

Goodbye Cruel [Single's] World!

Today is my wedding day!! I'm sure I know what you are wondering, how on earth does she have time to post on her blog on her wedding day? Well here is the answer to that: I do not. Ha, I am very, very fond of the beauty of 'scheduled' posts. I am actually writing this out a few days before hand, but I didn't want to leave ya'll hangin on the big day.

So, these are pictures that I have had for a while... but I could not risk posting them online before! What if my fiance came across the pictures? He will be seeing me in the dress for the first time TODAY. And since, at this point, he will not have any chance of getting online before seeing me... it is safe.

So here are a few of the little details of my beautiful gown...

Bachelorette Party

Mormon bachelorette parties are an interesting place to be. They usually aren't the same kind of wild party as you find elsewhere, instead they are rather more like a themed girls night.

Mine wasn't a wild party, but a simple girls afternoon. It involved throwing shrimp, manicures, and lots of shared memories. I am glad to have so many wonderful girlfriends, even more than are present in these photos. I hope that those friendships don't fade after I am married, as it sometimes happens. But, the way I see it, even if only in these photos I will always have these wonderful girls in my life.
