Bliss - noun. Supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment: wedded bliss.

Way too much to do to be blogging so I'm just doing a nice short one to get you by. The wedding was a success and a great time was had by all! I loved every second of my wedding WEEK! Thursday party and TBS show and Friday gallery crawl and Saturday wedding, just so much time spent with family and friends I wish we could do it all the time, except I'm so TIRED and the house looks like a tornado went through it. Most everyone leaves tomorrow, which will be sad but refreshing in a the-house-is-actually-quiet-and-empty sort of way. Here are just a couple wedding pictures while you wait for what will probably be the worlds largest post...
This photo was randomly featured on Buzznet:, pretty cool...

Family - noun. fam-i-ly, All those persons considered as descendants of a common progenitor.

Here are a bunch of pictures from the last week. The wedding is getting SO close and people are starting to show up, with Misha being the first. She flew in early Sunday morning, more like late Saturday night and we've been going ever since. Church on Sunday and the usual hot-spot Dolce Vita for wine with friends. X and K are so cute together, X will make such a good brother someday, he's sweet and nice and love to kiss K. Enjoy pictures...
Xander about to have beans and rice at Fat Burrito after I got a much needed haircut.
Xander loves this car/cart at Earth Fare, I love going there and sampling ALL of the soups, yep, I'm that person.
Misha and Xander, about to eat brunch at the Crepe Cellar, our newest addition in the NoDa restaurant scene.
This is a classic. Misha got herself trapped by giving X a taste of ketchup, then all he wanted was more...

Sarcasm - adj. A sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.

This lady is funny. There's no way around it. Even if you're not pregnant nor ever have been I think it's something that everyone should read, in case you're ever in the position of having a family/long term relationship or really just looking for a funny read. I'll go a couple days, maybe weeks, without reading her and then spend the next couple minutes laughing out loud or grabbing my head in the horror of her reading...she's raw and honest and very dark, and I like it.

Wild - adj. Unrestrained, untrammeled, or unbridled: wild enthusiasm.

What a great day out on the town X-Man and I had with our friend Kelly yesterday. We had planned to hit up the Mint Museum, before we found out it was closed, then we decided to go to Discovery Place (a science museum), when we arrived there we were told it was closed for construction! We were 0-2. Since we were already parked we decided to take a walk around uptown Charlotte and go to Imagine On, a kids library with a ton of things for them to play with and climb on, I'm so glad Kelly told us about it, it will definitely be a place for us to go from now on. Xander had sensory overload and ran from one thing to another. After that we went for a small snack and a drink and watched the trains come and go. On our way to the car we thought X would have fun in a little fountain and he sure did, and got very wet. It was such a nice day, we'll definitely have to bring papa next time.

What a little ham.
Don't mess with this face.
Starting to get wet from the fountain.
What a little monster. His shirt is right...'Mr. Mischief'.
I'm in love with that little monkey.
When he would touch the fountain it would run down his arms into his shirt, getting him wet from head to toe.
I had to rein him in a couple times when he ventured too far away from the fountain. He wasn't happy at all to leave but it was getting late and we needed to get some food in that adorable belly. It really was such a great day!

Birth - noun. Any coming into existence; origin; beginning: the birth of Protestantism; the birth of an idea.

This last Friday was my birthday and I had a great one! I'd say best one yet. We had a busy and exhausting weekend. We didn't even spend our usual Sunday at Dolce Vita because everyone wanted to lay low. I started my Friday going to yoga at the Y and it was smooth sailing from there, Earth Fare with Xander in a little car/cart, dinner with great friends at Cheesecake Factory and some drinks with friends at Dolce. Our Saturday was packed as well with a great trip to the farmer's market and the rest of the day in the sun at Rob and Amanda's cul-de-sac party, lots of friends and tons of food. Sunday, luckily was a slow day, church and walking through a couple of homes in the 'hood that are for sale. What a great birthday weekend!
We grabbed the cart with the little car attached at the store, Xander's first experience and he loved it! Driving like a crazy person, honking his horn and everything, he's so darn cute.
Matt, Kelly and Jake posing for Rob at my birthday dinner, sooooo much food!
Me and Amanda. Amanda gave me that scarf for my birthday and she's holding the coolest card that I got from Kelly.
I love making this little one laugh, it's a pretty easy job though, he's very happy.
Hanging out (and sleeping) at Dolce, it was a long day!

Loving my sucker from Caleb's trip to NYC. We're on our way to Rob's party, Matt pulled X's wagon full of Red Bull Cola and NOS.
I like playing cornhole/bean bag. I think Caleb's going to make some for our back yard.

He was so tired but was such a trooper all night. X-Man and I headed home while Caleb, Joey and Matt went to Crepe Cellar. I liked the time alone, I put X to bed and rented a girly movie...a perfect night.
