2014 Recap: {April, May, June}

This will probably be my favorite recap of 2014, because it has all things WEDDING and HONEYMOON in it!!!

-Celebrated my nugget's birthday 2 days before the wedding (in matching shirts, no less--which wasn't planned)

-Got pampered with my SIL's, bridesmaids (minus Trish) and nieces

-Oh you know....GOT MARRIED!!!

-Lynn became my bloggy to IRL friend after coming to DC for my wedding!

-Changed my name and marital status on Facebook the next day while waiting to leave for our honeymoon and looking through all of the amazing pictures our friends and family posted, because I was SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!!!  #FBO #aintnothingwrongwiththat

-Went on the most amazing Honeymoon to Antigua with the love of my life, right after our wedding (and just realized I never recapped that at all...I'll have to rectify that soon if you guys are still interested!)

-Went on some great excursions, and met some awesome couples who we're still in touch with today (even got some Christmas cards from them!)

-Went to my nugget's communion

-Closed on our house!!!!

-Subsequently pinned a ton of ideas for the house (many of which we've actually put to good use!)

-Got addicted to Orange is the New Black

-Attended the wedding drama couple's wedding (no cat fights, only rainbows)

-Attended MG's cousin's wedding

-Had all of our wedding gift thank you notes done within a month! #politeandtimely

-Moved my office at work, 3 weeks before the end of the school year
-Had a blate with Christy!

-Packed up our condo to get ready for moving day!

-Celebrated the anniversary of our engagement, along with Memorial Day weekend with friends before they moved :(

-Had things delivered to the house (washer/dryer, bed, etc) and moved things into the house slowly during the week before our official move in with the moving truck (made easier by Verizon shutting off our cable early #thanksalotverizon)

-Had a girls night with these two pretties and chatted the night away #sistersandwich

-Moving Day!!! MG's parents, my mom and our B-I-L came to help!

-Said good-bye to our old condo and our friends moved into it!

-Had our first house guest when my friend Nikki stayed over--we drank wine, gossiped a bunch and watched a favorite movie from growing up! 

-Had a girls night at the house, and enjoyed having a deck to relax on!

-School let out for the summer!!!!

-We stained/painted the deck, ordered a new office desk (since our movers broke it), and continued to get settled into the house

-Got a visit from my in-laws and my niece and nephew, followed by my SIL, her husband and their kids in the same weekend, at different times, so they could all see the house!
(it was SO nice having the space to have everyone stay with us and not need to get a room at a hotel)

Next up: July, August, and September! (aka, vacation months!!)
