New Toys

Derek and I finally decided to get a new 24inch I-Mac! We have been talking about it for a year now, and yesterday afternoon we decided to just go get one! It was so exciting and now we can do so much with the new computer! I am most excited about the i-photo and photoshop...I love taking pictures and the new photoshop will help me do some pretty cool things!

A few days earlier I decided that I cannot stand my pink razor phone anymore(Verizon told me it was time for my upgrade)and I wanted a new phone. I went to Verizon and looked at all the phones...The salesman helping me told me that he had them all in stock except for one, the Voyager. Hmm of course I HAD to have that one. Why? Because clearly it was such a good phone that they were sold out. So I headed home to call some other VW stores...Yep, all out. Even VW online was sold out. That made the desire for a Voyager even greater. I spent an hour on the phone with different stores and finally found one! Even though it was a 30 minute drive, it was worth it! Here is my new touch screen Voyager.

And last but not least we finally got to use our new Kate Spade crystal last night! They were a wedding gift from Aunt Debbie, and we did not want to use them until we were married:) Last night we had our friends Kiersten and Charlie over for dinner. Derek knows Charlie through Evergreen's soccer team and Kiersten is a nurse practitioner I work with at LPCH. Derek cooked a very good dinner of marinated grilled pork tenderloin with mint chutney and toasted pine nut rice pilaf. (What a mouthful!) I snapped this pic before dinner, and then forgot about the camera! (I guess it was the wine) They are such a fun couple to be around and we enjoyed drinking wine and talking most of the night!

"I'm Yours"

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks and now I'm trying to get back

Before the cool done run out I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
I look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing
We're just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm sure
There's no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

D-d-do do you, do you, d-d-do, do you want to come?
Scooch on over closer dear, I'll whisper in your ear
Oh yes love, love love love love love
Love you love, love you love

I've been spending way too long tricking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

"Final Fling Before the Ring"

The Saturday before the wedding Erica and Paige had a bachelorette party for me. It started out at Paige's apartment downtown Cincy and ended up (where we always end up!) in Mt. Lookout square. The party was SO much fun and we had a lot of fun drinks and games. All of my best Friends were there and even Mom:) The decorations were very appropriate(R rated) so I cannot show some! The party was actually in Paige's club room so posted all over the front doors, elevators, and walls was this sign...It was so funny!

Some games!

Out to the bars Downtown!

Thank You Erica and Paige for such a great party! Thanks to all my girls who made the night so much fun:)

Bridal Shower

These pictures are from my bridal shower that my sister Erica had for me! It was so great to have everyone together!!! The decorations were beautiful and the food was perfect! I was really impressed with how amazing everything turned out considering Erica had just had Griffin 3 weeks earlier!!!

Last night here:(

Tonight was the last night Erica, Scott and Griffin were in town:( We went out to Taj Palace for Indian food. Derek and Scott said the food was very good...Erica and I said the beer was very good:) Baby G slept the ENTIRE time we were there...with loud Indian music blasting! It was so much fun having them here the past week...I got to spend so much time with baby G, he even laughed on command for me!!! I am so sad to see them go in the morning...Thanks for coming to visit guys!

Holy Cross 7.26.08

Here are some pictures of Holy Cross Immaculata Church. The Wedding Day was beautiful and the weather was perfect. During the ceremony it started to rain a little and as soon as the ceremony was over there was a big rainbow over the city. Derek and I came out of the church and got to see a big beautiful rainbow above us. It was perfect:)

Wedding Day Hair:) 7.26.08

A few shots of us getting our hair done! The morning at the salon was so much fun! We had champagne and brunch(Thanks Mom and Paige!)waiting for us while we got our hair done!

Rehearsal Dinner 7.25.08

I still can't believe that all of the wedding events are over:( It was so much fun and Derek and I loved having all of our family and friends together! Here are some pictures of the rehearsal dinner at Vernon Manor Hotel.

Can't wait!

The photographer just told us that we still need to wait 4 more weeks to see the professional pictures of our wedding!!! We have some pictures that different family/Friends took...So that will do for now:)
