Okay first things first. I'm a married woman now hooray! Adam is the most wonderful guy. Kind, loving, honorable, brave, smart. He's the perfect soldier and the perfect husband and he loves sushi just as much as I do (we had it at least four times in two weeks). Anytime I ask him to do something he does it without question. Of course we work together as a team though. I make him dinner, get his drinks, scratch his back, etc. In return he gets me anything I want. I had to send him back to Afghanistan earlier this week but when he got there he found out that the replacements for his unit will start coming in during November. We didn't expect him to return till February.
Anyways, while I was in Texas I got to meet his grandparents who were amazing! His grandmother is teaching me how to cook all this wonderful authentic mexican food and she tells the best stories. Plus she's a famous western artist and I'm hoping to learn some tricks of the trade from her. His grandfather doesn't speak much b/c he's had two strokes but as a present he gave me a real pearl necklace with matching earrings that they bought from Thai pearl divers. They are gorgeous! I have been wanting pearl earrings for the longest time and to get a necklace on top of that is too good to be true. Adam also had the middle diamond on my engagement ring made bigger to flow with the wedding ring which I was kind upset about b/c I loved it the way it was and at some point I hope to get it reduced to its original size b/c it gets in my way now.
His mother took me to get my nails done before the wedding. I got solar French nails which were beautiful but a real pain in the butt b/c I couldn't do anything with them. The pedicure was one of the most uncomfortable experience of my life. Not only did I not like the massage b/c my feet are extremely ticklish but I also had a blister on my toe that the woman kept rubbing. Ouch!
The last two weeks have been great. We went to the Bridgestreet Mall several times and bought some home items from Anthropologie and I bought two new dresses at another store plus my first bottle of wine to start my wine collection. Rented a paddle boat which was just confusing b/c we didn't have a lot of room to move around and it was electric and hard to navigate. We stayed in one of the chalets at the Guntersville lodge the first week. Two bedroom, one bath, kitchen and living room with a deck that looked out over the lake. We saw all kinds of animals out there. We fed a raccoon breadsticks and it came up to about 2 feet away from us. Watching a woodchuck and passed by three deer.
Cloud 9 all except for the inlaw drama but I'm not going to get into that.
Off topic news. I've been getting a lot of work in lately. I'm designing a robin tattoo for a woman I met at a yardsale and I'm painting a Buddha picture for Johnathan's room. Only thing is though, I'm not really in a drawing/painting kind of mood lately. I've been getting back into sewing and crocehting mainly b/c I'm making seat cushions for our chairs b/c the cushions I want cost like $98 dollars at Anthropologie and I've decided to take what I want from there and either make it myself or find it cheaper somewhere else.
Okay okay this post has gone on long enough so I'll end it here. I can't help it I havn't posted in awhile and a lot has been going on. I really should be doing my thank you letters and and writing Adam.
