    Kristy, how was St. Lucia? I've been wanting to hear all about your wedding since I saw you were getting married there. It was our original destination, but we had to change because many of our guests couldn't make it. Its the next place I want to head on vacation I think.

        Well I guess I can join this thread too! I have to admit, coming down off the "high" of planning our wedding has at times made me feel really sad! There are a few things I wish we had done differently, but our week in Cuba and our wedding day were fantastic.
        Now real life is setting in. DH is a teacher and currently works outside of the city that we live in. He applied and interviewed in our city and elsewhere throughout the province and now we are waiting to hear back. It's been really tough on him working so far away from home (highway driving in the middle of winter in a sad ol' jeep takes its toll) and I think he needs a change. I myself would be happy leaving this city and being in a smaller town. Once we find out where he will be working next year, the next step is saving money for a house as we are renters currently. It sucks not paying toward anything (a mortgage) and I'd love to have our own house with a yard. And also I'm trying to convince DH that we need a honeymoon next summer (2010). Currently my thought is a backpacking trip through Europe as I've only been there once before and only for 3 weeks. We shall see. Everything costs money!

            Why am I just reading this thread now for the first time I am only at the top of page 3, but I wanted to subscribe to it in case I can't finish it. When I am done reading I will do my own update :)

                I thought I had posted in this thread some time ago, but I guess I am losing my mind now that I am married!

                I LOVED planning our DW and wish we could do it all over again. I had so much fun with all the DIY stuff I learned about on here and wish I had had more time to perfect things, so I can't wait til I can plan another party!!!!

                We have been TTC since the wedding ... and have moved on to fertility treatments.

                We sold our house and close on it July 31, so we will be moving all next month and into early August.

                DH is preparing to head back overseas (right now to Iraq) next year. He should head to Ft. Bliss for pre-deployment in April 2010 and then overseas in July 2010. He'll be gone for 14 months as it stands now.

                So, between now and then, we are trying to make babies and will be getting settled in our new home (same area, just different neighborhood!).

                  Okay so I was a tad slow checking in. Since the wedding the downclimb was fast! Demanding jobs and a little one keeps us on our toes and constantly busy! We are planning to return to Jamaica for our 6-month anniversary so that is definitely exciting! One MAJOR Faux pas of mine is that I still have not sent out my thank you cards! What a procrastinator I am! But our son was pretty sick the last two months so it kept getting pushed aside. Otherwise life is swell! Best wishes to all the new MRS!

                    I'm so in love with St. Lucia, it's ridiculous! I just want to buy a villa and move down there. I cannot encourage you enough to go. And if you do go, don't just stay on the resort grounds. Get out and see the island. The people are so friendly and welcoming to tourists. We hired a taxi driver to give us a tour for the day (if you go, I can give you his info) and saw so many wonderful things. He took us to a restaurant for lunch that we never would've found. The food was delicious and super cheap. I'm so happy we chose to stay in villas instead of a resort because it made me explore the area. I can't wait to go back. Jet Blue is supposed to start flying there in October from New York for $99 one way! Much better than the $600 flights we had.

                    If I did my wedding all over ago, the location definitelty would've stayed the same. Great, now I want to go back right now!

                      Hi everyone! It's been um, well ENTIRELY too long since I checked in on here and I was thinking about you all - so HI! Hope you're all doing well. Looking forward to spending hours catching up on everything I've been missing!
