Back to school...

So I had a 60-page paper due on Tuesday, and I just barely got it done. And it was EXACTLY sixty pages. I made no guarantee that it wasn't total crap, though, so I sure do hope they aren't expecting anything brilliant.

And I started classes on Monday. I thought most of them would be very interesting classes, but they're shaping up to be pretty horrendous. Oh well. My Professional Responsibility course will be awesome because I love the professor, and that'll have to be enough.

Also, this semester should be MUCH less busy than last. I am doing a moot court competition in March in Buffalo, New York, which will take a LOT of preparation. But it'll be fun, too. :) Other than that, I don't think I'll have too much going on. So maybe I can actually study this semester. Actually, though, after the semester from hell in the fall, where I had a LUDICROUS school schedule PLUS planning the wedding, my grades were EXACTLY the same as first year!! So apparently not studying paid off! Maybe that'll work for me again this semester. Somehow, though, I don't think I'll be so lucky. :)

And I STILL can't get over the fact that, in a year and a half, I'll be studying for the bar, getting ready to start a real job. I have been in school for so long, I can't imagine having a non-student schedule. Its nice getting home at 3:00 (granted I am supposed to be studying when I get home). Guess I'll finally know what's it's like living in the real world!!

And can I just say how AWESOME it is being married??!! Micah and I are still a little giddy (well mostly I am giddy). Micah asked me when I was going to go get my name changed. I told him I thought I'd go tomorrow, and he got a big smile. I love my new name, and he loves that I love my new name. And I'm just so content. Like I KNOW that I was put on this earth to be his companion and soul mate, and I'm so freaking happy I get forever with him. :)

Okay... I'm feeling pretty crappy, and I have Sense and Sensibility on pause. :)

Just a silly thing...

Do you have something that just kind of drives you crazy? Like, you know it's completely dumb, but you can't help yourself for wanting to pull your hair out when it happens?

So, here's the thing. I cannot STAND a limp handshake. I mean, you don't have to break my hand or anything, but women who just place their tiny, apparently breakable hand in mine and expect me to be ok with them placing it there, not allowing me to actually shake it, drive me a little freaking nuts.

This woman at church is the prime culprit. She's a tiny little lady, so I get that she's not all John Wayne and ripping my arm off when the pastor asks us to go around and shake hands, but seriously.... I'm scared to touch her little hand because I think I might break her!

Anyway... I told you it was dumb. I just had to vent. The end.

We walked down the aisle...

I'm MARRIED!! I can't even tell you how wonderful it feels to say that. I'm a WIFE! And I love my HUSBAND! Micah introduced me to someone as his wife while we were on our honeymoon and I thought I might die of happiness.

So the wedding went pretty wonderfully. There were a billion tiny complications, and a few kind of big ones, but we made it down the aisle to say our vows and that's what matters. :) Apparently my cake lady didn't finish decorating my cake until 15 minutes before the first guest arrived at the reception. No one told me this until after I got back from the honeymoon. And the breaker at the church went out, so there were no lights in the front of the church, so we had to string Christmas lights up, which ended up looking kind of pretty anyway. And I took longer getting ready than I planned, so I made us a little behind schedule (which was so weird because I'm ALWAYS on time). I forgot my something old, so it was a good thing my sweet Candice let me borrow her gorgeous ring from her grandma. And at the reception I cut the wrong layer of the cake in my excitement/nervousness/anxiousness to get out of there.

BUT, the ceremony was so perfect. Walking down the aisle and seeing Micah's face... I can't describe what I felt. I had to keep looking down to keep the tears from overtaking me. I was just SOO happy. Micah got a little choked up saying his vows, so then I got a little choked up saying mine, so then the minister, Micah's grandpa, got a little choked up too! But making that commitment was the most amazing part of the whole night, as it should be. :)

The reception was over in a flash! I think by the end I was just SOOO exhausted from the stress of the day, that I was beginning to feel a little claustrophobic. My perfect friend Amanda just said, "Are you ready to get out of here?" and I realized I was. We got in the truck and drove off, and I think that moment, Micah and I sitting in the truck, looking at eachother, it really hit us that we were married. It was an amazing feeling. And thank goodness someone packed us a goody bag full of food. We ate NOTHING at the recpeption, and we were starving. We ate every darn thing in that bag!! And the food, if I can say so myself, was really really good.

We stayed at Hotel ZaZa on the wedding night. That hotel is so gorgeous and romantic. Everything about it is romantic to me. Our room was awesome.

Pretty, right? And the rose petals and candles are courtesy of my sister-in-law and brother. It was so sweet. Anyway... I'll just say this: it was totally and completely worth the wait, in case you were wondering. :)

Then we were off to the honeymoon. It was such a fun time. First, the resort, an all-inclusive hotel near Cancun, was just exquisite. Everything about it was gorgeous, down to the marble floors. Our room was amazing. Gorgeous bed, a jacuzzi that looks out over the patio, a lounge chaise on the balcony (where I spent a LOT of time reading and sleeping).

It had like 8 restaurants, and most of them were really good. Lots of bars (that Micah and I learned to take advantage of... free smoothies and virgin pina coladas!). There were shows and stuff at night, too. And for New Years they did this big dinner and stuff. Sadly, Micah and I did NOT stay awake to see in the new year. We're old, I know, but were just exhausted from all the laying around in the sun. :) Oh yeah... the freaking beach and the pools were awesome, too.

But we had to come home. To our mess of a house that is filled to the brim with wedding presents. :) We've gotten most of it put away, but there is still a LOT of work to be done before we go back to school.

Anyway, I just wanted to write a bit about the wedding and honeymoon. I'll post some wedding pictures when I get them. :)
