Marriage Monday: Getting to Know You -- Link up!

Happy Marriage Monday!
Today, I am not sitting behind a computer currently typing (which is why this post will ACTUALLY be on time this week!) - instead, you can imagine me sitting on the beach at this very moment because we are on vacation!  Which honestly couldn't have come at a better time for us.  But more on that later!  We planned this vacation a few months ago and have been looking forward to it so very much.  It'll be Presley's first time visiting the beach and I can't wait to see her reaction to the sand and the waves and the seagulls and all the sights, sounds, and smells of the ocean!

This week I wanted to post something light, airy, and super fun and decided to host a link up!  One of my favorite things to do is to get to know people.  Sometimes this means getting to know new folks, learning more about the people who are already in my life, and one of my favorites... getting to know Tony every day.  Plus, seriously guys?  I do all the talking here!  I am co…

Marriage Monday: Wedding Day ABC's {Part Two}

Eeek.  Sorry I have been so late on posting for Marriage Monday the past few weeks!  Better late than never??  Here is part two of our Wedding Day ABC's!

{Part One if you missed it!}

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
My "something old" and "something blue" was the promise ring Tony gave me for Christmas in 2006.  It is a beautiful ring with normal diamonds and a gorgeous blue diamond right in the middle!  I love it so much and was so happy to wear it on our wedding day on my right hand.  My "something new" was my earrings & my bracelet and my "something borrowed" was the bouquet charm from my sister's wedding that was a picture of our dad!

I made our programs and man... they were such a pain in the BUTT!  I made our programs into fans and at the time I was so set on having fans that the process of putting them together was almost fun... looking back, I shouldn't have wasted my stin…

Marriage Monday: Wedding Day ABC's {Part One}

I'd seen a few of my blogger friends (Caitlin & Patty) take part in this - and I thought it would be a lot of fun to reflect back on such an awesome day!  I will definitely be breaking the wedding day ABC's down into two different posts.

I honestly don't remember how many people attended after all was said and done - but I do remember that there were quite a bit more people at the reception than there were at the ceremony!  Somewhere along the way, I remember wishing we had kept the guest list down to our most intimate friends & family so that it would be an overall more intimate, smaller, and more personal affair.  I am pretty sure it was between 200-300, but don't quote me because that sounds like a ton of people.  We even had a couple of wedding crashers!!!  Okay, so they were family of one of my bridesmaids (and were most welcomed!)... but that was a big funny thing that evening!

I had both a maid and matron of honor and both of them we…
