      we never have a dull moment in our house! as everyone knows i like to joke about our 2 kids, 2 cats, 2 dogs and the 2 of us all squished in.

      since the wedding we have been nonstop craziness! we had some family drama at our cabo wedding,. then we went to 3 more weddings in aug and sept! (got to fly to phoenix for one of them!)

      next, my husbands union went on a 2 month strike (boeing), he wrecked our Jeep (we've been rebuilding it ever since), we took a trip to vegas, i went to chicago in january to see maura trisha and tammy, we started planning our honeymoon which has sapped ALL our money but we couldnt be more excited to finally get a week alone together!

      and finally, we are planning a family trip to disneyworld next year before the kids get too old to enjoy it WITH us haha, we are all very excited about it as MIL has offered to pay for our stay and we just have to pay for the food plan, YAY!

      but, first things first, honeymoon in 26 days and then we need to get back to reality. we have been so broke ever since doug was on strike that we havent even been able to order our pro wedding album from our BFW (Big Freakin Wedding, as most of you old timers and married gals know haha). so, i forsee lots of overtime in my future but, being at work equals lots of BDW time too haha!

        Hey Lisa, thanks for calling us old-timers LOL! That is hillarioius!

        I haven't been doing much since the wedding. We had the holidays and have since been just working. I miss wedding planning - I really enjoyed it! I still have wedding pics to give out but there is just not enough time in the day! We are now working on opening a bar and I've taken to drinking wine. Besides that, not much going on here! Oh yeah - and we are going on a mini-honeymoon WITHOUT the kids in 45 days! Abbie - what day do you guys leave?

          carly, i feel the same way. i honestly think being married is the best thing in the world and even though nothing has changed, things are just different somehow. just a million time nicer.

          abbie, i knew you must be super busy! that's nice that you and doug finally get some alone time. any idea when his strike might end?

          katrina, it was 2 months long, it ended back at the end of october. but those 2 months without his paycheck REALLY did a number on our finances then the jeep wreck set us back horribly right in the middle of all of that. (my stepson had to go to the E-room so that was crazy bills, doug didnt have insurance due to the strike at the time--BTW, they are fine AND the bills were able to be reimbursed to insurance when the strike ended, but not having that money just really f-ed everything up). but hopefully after the honeymoon that we cant really afford, but are taking anyways because we are in dire need of alone time, hopefully things will settle down and we can get back on track!

            Yay! I love the updates! I feel like so many of us were so close during the palnning process. I became completely co-dependent on the forum. I couldn't buy a stamp without BDW approval. LOL Then after the wedding there is this big let down. My time was so consumed with all things wedding, I just didn't know what to do with myself. It was very 'Now what?'

            I love my DH but I do have to say that marriage was an adjustment for me even though we have been together forever (7 years next week!) I'm really independent and having to think twice before I buy something or having to check in before going out to dinner with a friend is just wierd! Before I would always talk about this kind of thing with DH, but now it's like I have to! LOL Like I can't have any secrets or me time - it's us time now.

            I'm also really tired of people asking us when we are going to have kids! I think the next time someone asks that, my response will be "Are you offering to pay off my mortgage? That would be great! We could get started makin' babies right away!"

              people ask us all the time too. even tho these same people are people who full well know that not only are we not planning on it, but they also know doug had a vas 10 years ago when he was married to his first wife! stupid stupid rude people!
