SHOW US YOUR LIFE- Wedding Dress

So, my friend Robin has showed me the blog Kelly's Korner. She does this thing weekly, where she does a blog entry on "show me your life" bedroom, bathroom, etc. Well, I have never been able to play along until now! :) This week, it is Show me your life- wedding dress! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED my wedding dress! I dont have our professional pictures just yet..But really want to share with you all what it looks like! The pictures may not be excellent quality, but the dress still looks awesome!

Matt's Accident

Well, week two of being married and we had something very scary happen last night.

We got home from running errands around 9:00 or so and Matt really wanted to spray some stuff on his brakes to make them stop squeaking. He was in the garage starting to mess with it and around 9:45, I told him I was going to go get ready for bed (assuming that he was knowledgeable and knew what he was doing, which most of the time he does!) The actual garage door was closed but I kept the garage door to the house open because Maddie likes to just sit in the car and watch Matt. I was washing my face in our bathroom and I hear Matt scream my name a couple times. I run out thinking he needed me for something, but quickly realized it was a scream of desperation. I ran in to find that the car had fallen on him. He was screaming "help, get it off me" and I had no idea what part of his body the car was on. He told me to try and pull the car off of him and all I kept thinking in my head was, ok adrenalin when are you going to kick in and enable me to pick this car up. That wasn't happening! So, I opened the garage door and began to run next door screaming for help. It seemed like everyone's front porch lights were off so I continued to run and scream, hoping someone would hear and come. As soon as I turned and looked across the street I saw 4 people running over. It couldn't have been more than 5 seconds when they started coming so I ran back into the garage. Matt started yelling, "what are you doing, go back and knock on doors!!" He didn't expect people to come so quick. They came in and we lifted it off of him. I can't tell you how good it was to see his face and know that he was going to be "ok". He looked pretty shocked and started to laugh because he knew what he had just done was very stupid. Those people being outside was definitely a God thing. He was probably under the car for about a minute, but he said it felt like an eternity.

What actually happened was, the jack he was using was small. He went to loosen one of the brake bolts and he had to push hard cause it wasn't coming lose. When he did that, it caused the jack to slide out and the car to fall on him.

After a minute, I told him to never do that to me again! He didn't break or fracture anything thank goodness, he is just very bruised and wearing a sling.

Here are some pictures of the damage

He is doing better today than we thought he would be! He is such a trooper. Afterwards, he was like well I have to get that tire back on. We were all like, no you aren't touching the car! haha We are glad he is fine and most importantly alive!

Mr. and Mrs. Bickston

Matt and I got married last Saturday and it was the best day of our lives! All of our family and friends were there to witness us say our vows and celebrate with us. It couldn't have been more perfect. I have to say, it is weird being married..But in a good way! :) When we got back from the honeymoon we came to our house and Matt stayed with me instead of going to his parents house. It's great, we relaxed and opened our wedding gifts! We have some awesome friends and family who got us great gifts for our new house!! When we get everything put together, I will post pictures of our house.

So, the day after the wedding we flew to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico for our honeymoon. It was AMAZING! We stayed in an ocean front suite and this was the view from our room and our room.

It was BEAUTIFUL! We stayed for a week and neither of us wanted to come back to reality. It was hands down the best vacation I have ever been on. I was already planning our anniversary trip for next year before we left! haha

Here are some more pictures from the trip..I wish I could post them all, but there are 440!

Now we are home and Matt is back to work! I am doing lots of cleaning and laundry! It is sad that the wedding and honeymoon are over but we are so excited to see what the future holds! :)

All Moved In

So we are in our house and getting all fixed up! :) My family is in town for the wedding next weekend and my mom has been a HUGE help. She basically got my kitchen together and has helped me pick out our washer/dryer and start some loads of clothes for me! She's THE BEST. We finished up meeting with our vendors this week and everything is ready to go! I'm so excited about July 11th. People have asked me a lot, are you nervous? At this point, not at all! I am soo ready!

On another note, I have been doing "bootcamp" this week. Tanna has been leading it and it is awesome. It is really refreshing for me to get up and start my day with a workout. (And some pretty awesome beauties :)

Well, I know this is not long..I will post pictures soon! Everyone have a fun and safe Fourth of July!

Only 9 more days :)
