Ashley let me borrow her 3 barrel waver last night; it's like a crimper, but with curling Iron barrels instead. It makes wavy curls... looks a lot like a perm, and I LOVE IT! Totally changed my appearance. I did it last night, a half assed job really, and when Aaron came home he kept staring and saying "you look so different" it's true, I kept looking at myself too, because I looked like someone else... a rocker type hippie chick. I was going to post a picture, but I am gonna wait until I do a better job on it, I just can't wait to go buy one of my own!
I didn't go to the gym last night; as the blisters and other sore spots on my feet were still really tender. I felt guilty about not working out but I got over it. I keep reminding myself "work in progress... work in progress..." Plus I like the way I look in the wedding pictures, so that helps too. I tried a new salad dressing last night, Bernstein's Parmesan Garlic Ranch ... the lower fat variety. It was actually really good. I am quite picky about dressings... usually stick with fat free ranch by Hidden Valley... even though it has a bit of a bite to it. But the Parmesan Garlic was awesome. I have the same salad every night (lettuce/greens with chopped onion, two hard boiled eggs, and vegetarian bacos with dressing and A LOT of pepper.) So it was nice to have a little variety.
Sunday afternoon, after we got home from all the wedding festivities, Aaron and I were vegging out on the couch, watching the news and a story came on about in car breathalizers. How the state is pushing for anyone with a DUI or other alcohol related driving infraction to have these put in their cars. The thinking being that if you have to breathe on it to get the car to start, and if the car will only start if you are not intoxicated, then there will be less drunk drivers on the road. Aaron scoffed at the story and said "all you gotta do is have your kid breathe on it, geeze. Idiots. How dumb, I mean it may slow some people down, but there are ways around the system." He shook his head in disdain and I erupted in giggles. He started laughing too, I just found it funny that he got so irritated with the idea... I had no idea he had such strong feelings on the topic ;-) He cracks me up sometimes. Can't you just see some drunk redneck though making his four year old blow on the breathalizer? yikes.
and now more wedding pictures ... because I have 3 memory cards full of em :-)
Kylie and her daddy chill in the shade before the ceremony.
Matt's sister Amy and her husband Sean, I love love love the bridesmaids dresses.
I even got a slow dance that night :-)
Mom and Aunt Ruth before the ceremony. They've known each other since grade school. Time flies.
That's Uncle Rory on the left and Uncle Gary on the right. My dad's two best friends. Uncle Rory told Aaron at the wedding how once he got a ticket for driving his motorcycle with my Uncle Gary on his shoulders, they were always playing pranks on each other and always planning something. So when my Uncle Gary told me to grab the camera and come outside my first question was "why, are you going to do something to Uncle Rory?" But no, he just wanted to have some pictures of the benches outside so he could attempt to make them at home.
Here's Kelly in her last few moments as a Hudson.
I love this picture of us, well of Aaron anyway. I love the expression on his face. He's so relaxed and you can't tell it's like a thousand degrees out. We look cool and ... I'll stop gushing now.
