Yeah? Me, too! What's not to love about coconut and pineapple and rum? Ignore my previous post where I stated I didn't like them very much. Maybe it was being in tropical paradise or maybe I was just crazy, but I love them. And, I sure could use one right now. We got back from our honeymoon Saturday evening, and I had a message on my phone saying I needed to come into work Sunday if at all possible. I thought about pretending I was still in Mexico, but I am an awful liar (why did I have to be raised by such honest people!?). ;) So, as of 1:15 pm Tuesday, I've already logged around 25 hours this week. Talk about back to reality!
I know what you really want to know is about the big day and the week in paradise. :) Well, it was pretty close to perfect. No major mishaps on the wedding day and the weather was gorgeous! And, I truly understand what people mean when they say it just flies by. I feel like I barely remember the day, and I still can't believe it happened. I didn't feel at all how I thought I would feel. It just felt like a normal day, and I was getting married. In all honestly, it was wonderful, but it's kind of anticlimactic. You work so hard to plan something and in an instant, it's over. I also felt a little stressed at the reception about trying to see everyone and give them all the attention they deserved. Impossible! I finally just let it go and danced the night away! The pictures I've seen of people on the dance floor are priceless! I am glad that everyone had a good time (or they are really good fakers). :) My two regrets are not having anyone video tape the ceremony and not having the professional photographer all the way to the end, because it got pretty hilarious on the dance floor! Thankfully, we have some pictures, like this:
We called this the "Laneri Sandwich." My mom is in there somewhere.
And, here are a few more from the events of the day:
When we get the professional pics, I will post a few of those. Now, I better get back to work so I can leave before 10 tonight and go see my HUSBAND! :) xoxo-Mrs. Kristin
