Ryan and I just got home from our weekend in the mountains to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed at his parents mountain house and had a great time despite the constantly foggy, mostly rainy weather that we had all weekend.
First of all, I’m calling bullshit on the Farmers Almanac. The “fact” that the end of September/early October is statistically, one of the driest times of year in the Boone area is blatantly false. If you ever read that fact, disregard it and take it from me, it’s gonna rain. 30% chance of rain? More like 100%. Your outdoor plans are fucked.
While we did get a chance to go up to Grandfather Mountain on Sunday and were able to, unlike last year because of high winds, cross the bridge and hang out on the top for a bit. The rest of the outdoor plans fell through.
Ryan and I had planned on going up to Hawks Nest and go zip lining, but when we made it up there yesterday, we were literally in a cloud. I don’t think flying down a zip line without being able to see where and when a landing is coming would be very safe.
So we spent most of yesterday sitting around his parents place, watching movies and tv, laying in front of the fire and cuddling.
We had plans to go and see Looper last night, and on the way, since most everything we’d planned on doing all weekend had fallen through bc of the weather, I asked him to drive out to our wedding site so we could take a photo at the Apple Barn, and with the mountains in the background. It was raining, and started raining harder once we got out of the car, but I think it cheered us up quite a bit, because we both had been a bit bummed up until that point yesterday that the weather had screwed our zip lining plans over again this year.
It’s hard to believe we’ve been married for a whole year now, it FLEW by. We joked about how this past year has been a lesson in “shit not working out despite our best efforts.” I’m honestly glad though, that even though we’ve been through putting in three separate offers on three separate homes, through all the ups and downs, emotionally, that our careers have thrown at us, that we are here to support one another, to encourage each other. I’m so lucky to have found Ryan, and so lucky that I get to start a family with him one day…
After watching “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” I think I’ve decided to return my wedding dress and get something more along the lines of THIS. The tiara will have twinkling rainbow LED crystals and house a bubble and glitter cannon inside (for dramatic effect,) my shoes will have LED lights in the heels too…
What do you think guyz?! Too over the top?!?!?!?!
PS. This show is probably the most over the top thing I’ve ever seen, but god damn it, that’s why I love it!
One of my best friends from middle and high school got engaged to her longtime boyfriend recently. Both Krystal, and her fiancé Miral, are first generation US citizens, and their parents are insisting they get married back in India where most of their family members still live.
Isn’t she stunning?!
I love traditional Indian wedding culture, especially the red bridal sarees and mehndi!
Oh my god I wish I could go!
Found bridesmaids dresses today. This is two sizes too big, way too long, and the wrong color…but, it has pockets! It’ll be knee length, and even better, nobody’s boobies will fall out!
I’m thinking eggplant?
