I'm back and I'm a MRS!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!! I can't believe i have been gone for over 16 days!  So sorry for no updates, once i get on blogspot i can't get off for hours so i took a break to get MARRIED, go on a honeymoon, move in to an apartment, start two new jobs, and get used to this whole being a wife thing!

The Wedding was the most perfect day of my life.
It was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined and everything went off without a hitch!
The skys were a beautiful blue for our outdoor ceremony and our fan programs provided much relief from the heat!
My adorable cousin Addy was the perfect flower girl and the two handsome ringbearers were to die for in their searsucker!
The older of the two ringbearers followed his mommy's direction perfectly and stood completely still with the biggest smile on his face.
While the other, younger brother, ran around behind us picking flowers for his mommy and the photographer and giving a worm to one of the groomsmen!
He provided laughter for all of the guests and the adorablness shot through the roof with the fun he was having!

The most unexpected thing of the day was all of the tears I cried!
I never in a million years thought I would cry at my wedding.
I am just not someone that cries when I'm happy or who cries when your suppossed to!
The waterworks began at about 3 in the afternoon when I walked down to preview the reception.
It was more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed.
But the tears came when I saw a special area with two giant jars of pink and white Susan G. Komen m&m's, a sign saying something like  lieu of favors, a donation has been given in your honor, and a sweet picture of me and Mrs. Vicki.
She is such an amazing, strong woman and i wanted to honor her and her continuing fight with Breast Cancer in any way I could.
I just stood there staring at it and the Wedding Planner told me that she had already been down to see it after the bridesmiads brunch she and another woman hosted.
She said that everyone stood and cried when they saw it so of course the tears started streaming down!
I thought i was okay until we got to the Ceremony sight and my mom had already put my dress on and I was putting on my jewelry when my mom gave me my "something borrowed", her orginal engagement ring from my dad.
She put it on my finger and started tearing up, so of course I did too!
I can't see my mom cry without crying!!
Then as soon as I hugged my dad and he placed my hand in charlie's, tears poured out and didn't stop the entire ceremony!

My favorite part of the Wedding (besides of course the actual marrying my best friend part!) was having all of my loving family and friends in one special area.
At the Reception I danced the night away with our flower girl Addy and my other Cousin's Rae and Julian, who were program attendants.
Charlie's cousin's, Vivian and Belle joined in and we had the best time holding hands, jumping up and down, and spinning in circles!
At one point Juilian looked up at me and said, "This is the most fun I've ever had! I never thought this day would come!"
It made me so happy and well worth the sore feet and pulled calf muscle!!
That was probably the thing I will remember the most is dancing with all them.
I am not a good dancer by any means, but I sure can dance with little kids!

I had the best time of my life and can't wait to share all of the pictures and details!  I just wanted to get out this post so I could get back on track with the blog world and all my bloggie buddies!!
I will give detailed posts about each part of the wedding when we get the pictures so I can remember it all!
