Quick update

Ok, so we still don't have internet which mainly explains my absence from my blog. I'm also working in a lab every day I can, going to school, and being a wife full-time. So--chew on that!

Also, my memory card plug in on my laptop isn't working, so I have to find the cord to my camera somewhere.... That's what I get for dropping my laptop.

Anyways, we're alive and well. I'll have to update again later when I have more time!

Wedding Stuff

Ok, so after many requests to post pictures of my wedding, I'm finally putting some up. These were taken by the foreign exchange students that attended my wedding.. (Long story.)

Happy New Years everybody!







































I just wanted to give a shout out to the best friends EVER. Whit and Tish--you helped out so much on my big day and really made me feel special. Thanks for being there for me!

Hopefully my photographer will give me copies of my pictures on a CD or something so I can upload them to my computer and share them with everyone.

Ok, back to work...

Our Highly Anticipated Return

So, we've returned here to Portland, the land of rain and sweet stinky weed. We still don't have internet in our apartment, so I'm jacking the free wireless from the laundry room on my laptop. I can't live without the internet!!!! Graham doesn't seem to understand my addiction.

But anyways, yes.. we are married and have been for almost 2 busy weeks. We had a wonderful honeymoon in San Francisco (we got upgraded everywhere we went!) and celebrated Christmas with my family in Folsom. Seriously parents.. Newlyweds on the air mattress in the family room?! Funny. We drove home on Friday the 28th and have been cleaning, organizing, and buying stuff for the apartment since then. I'll post pictures soon. Our apartment isn't done yet, as evidenced by the big tupperware container we are using as the TV stand in the family room.

I'm currently testing out the laundry room's dryer and quickly discovering that it SUCKS to not have your own. Plus, the 25 cents per 12 minutes of dryer time tends to add up rather quickly, especially when I could probably dry these clothes faster by blowing on them.

I start school again tomorrow, and we have the Portland reception on Friday, so life is speeding up again. I'll blog again soon when I return to this laundry hell-hole and kick the crap out of the worthless dryer.

P.S. To re-gifters worldwide... You're an embarrassment to the human race. That is all.
