Wow, it’s really been a while. I hope everyone had a great holiday season and had a great start to the new year. I would have posted sooner, but I’ve been going through some life changes and didn’t really have the desire to blog.
Anyhoo, I’m Mrs. D now and I’m loving it so far. The wedding was beautiful (what I can remember of it anyway…nerves make the day go by in a blur). We haven’t gotten our pictures back yet (Christmas and all), but when I get them I’ll post some. Our families are laying hard on their pictures too…we seriously haven’t seen one picture of the ceremony. People keep saying they’ll email them, but *poof* there’s nothing. We did get an mp3 recording of the ceremony–that was pretty nice–but why in the *beeeeeeeeeeep* did someone have their cell phone on ‘loud as hell’ in church? Of course it rang with some obnoxious ringtone, and it seemed they couldn’t find their phone. I found out who it was, but I have to deal with that in a separate matter cuz this chick is partly responsible for those life changes I mentioned before.
The honeymoon–yes we did make it out of our room lol–was fabulous. We were in Montego Bay for a week. Here are a couple of pics:

The rest of the trip was much of the same. Beach, drinks, food, lots of sun. We’re actually planning a return trip this year. Can’t wait. On the way back, however things started to get shitty. We had a layover in Detroit (don’t ask…we flew over BWI, our final destination, just to get to Detroit. *Sigh*), but the flight there was delayed because they had snow and lots of it. We were stuck in the Montego Bay airport for 6 hours. Ok, that’s fine I guess. We ate and drank…not much else to do. Well when we finally got to Detroit, this is what we saw…
Of cours we were the last international flight to land that night, so the customs people were tired and slooow. And of course because of the friggin 10 inches of snow we missed our connecting flight home (even though that was delayed…but only by two hours). The airline was nice enough to put us up for the night at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, so we had cozy luxury digs. But it was cold.as.hell. outside, especially considering it had been 80 degrees for us just a few hours earlier and we didn’t exactly carry winter stuff with us. We got home the next morning, and we were kinda sad that the whole thing was over. The wedding and planning really took over our lives for a while before the wedding. But we’re rested now and have settled into our ‘married life’ routine just fine.
I’m going through some changes with friends though. I’ve made a conscious effort not to be that chick who does nothing but brag about her wedding and husband and yadda yadda, but I’m still getting a lot of hate/jealousy/envy from (people I thought were) friends. Not so much of the “girl I’m so happy for yall”, but the “now I want to be you” type of mess. I can’t get into it too much here, but it’s borderline crazy and could be interpreted as attempted ID theft. Email me if you want to know the deal…a hot ass mess. But when is something in my life not a hot ass mess?
Now that the whole hoopla is over, I can go back to my life again. You know, gym and social stuff, and keeping my word on promises I’d made months ago. *Ahhh* it feels good.
