5 on Friday

It's FRIDAY! Even though this was a short work week for me (in terms of work days), it has been a long one trying to recover from everything post wedding/honeymoon.

Let's get to some 5 though, shall we?

{1}- Exhausted
Like I just mentioned, coming back from a vacation is rough. Coming back from a honeymoon that was insanely amazing and absolutely perfect and relaxing is even harder.
this pretty much sums up the honeymoon/vacation :)
 I know I won't get much sympathy since I was in paradise for a week, but I think everyone can relate to the post-vacation blues.
Especially when you come back to TONS of stuff going on at work, on top of....

{2}-Closing on the House
Next Wednesday MG and I close on our new home! It's incredibly exciting (and a little scary too), but we have been busy busy busy since getting back with trying to get last minute paperwork and finances in line. Luckily after Wednesday things should hopefully slow down a bit!

{3}-Nieces' Communions
MG and I are continuing our non-stop, go-go-go trend with a trip to PA this weekend for our two nieces' communions. One of them is actually on Saturday morning (and another one next weekend), but there's a party for both girls Saturday afternoon. It'll be so fun to see the family, celebrate the girls, and also re-hash all of the wedding fun, too. And, the girls are officially my nieces now (they even call me "Aunt Jenn"...swoon!), which is just that much more special to me :)

{4}-Wedding Pics
Our wedding photos are already done and being sent to us (hopefully we will get them today or in the mail tomorrow). I've already been perusing them and I there are some really great shots! I can't wait to share them with you all. In the meantime, the ones that have been posted to Facebook have been a good source to hold me over until the professional ones get in. Here's a sneak peak of two from facebook that I just love:
{5}-Outpouring of Love
I know I've said this before, but I really mean it: MG and I are blessed. As expected, on our wedding day we were showered with love and support by almost everyone who was in attendance. I can't tell you the amount of people who came up to us, or told our parents, that they can truly tell how happy we are together just by looking at us. I've had comments like that from my long-time friends, too--ones who have seen the heartache I've experienced in the past, and just how different things have been ever since I met MG. It's heart-warming to know that it's obvious to others when we're together, how we feel about each other.
We also couldn't believe how generous some of our family and friends were with their gifts, cards from the wedding and comments the following morning, too. I actually cried on the drive from the hotel back to our condo because I was so overwhelmed by how amazing our family and friends are, and just how lucky we are to have them, and each other, in our lives.  I even get a little teary-eyed thinking about it now...

So, on that super sappy note, I'll wish you a happy Friday and a fantastic weekend!
Catch ya on Monday, lovies!
