March Madness!!!!

Oh yea, that's a BIG logo for you!!!! Any basketball fans will know that stands for my Boilermakers who barely squeaked through to the Sweet 16!!!!!!!!!

I am a HUGE sports junkie & we even have FINAL FOUR tickets!!! Can't wait for the excitement but first we get through this weekend!

On top of some amazing basketball, our reception is here at home this weekend. Whew....what an undertaking. It's been WAY more emotional getting ready for this than it was for the wedding itself. Between the seating chart & trying to place people to avoid any problems to last minute regrets to final details (and I'm sooo NOT a details person.) But I'm super excited for it at the same time. I NEVER got to dance in Vegas (that should be a sin) so I'm ready to tear it up at the reception.

I promise pictures of that & finally of my gown sometime next week!

I hope you are all well & kicking butt! I'm at my lowest weight of the year & cannot totally blame stress since I've been eating on program & keeping up with my workouts/cardio!

And thank you all SOOOOO much for the super sweet comments on the wedding pics!

BOILER UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs. B returns!!!!

I'm back & officially married! Eek! It's hard to believe & the trip went soooo fast! I was in good shape the day of the wedding too..only one major meltdown. And tears STREAMING down my face while I looked Kevin in the eye & said my vows. Something very powerful about saying those words! The picture above was after he pronounced us as husband & wife!!!!!!!!

The minister did an amazing ceremony for it being so short but it couldn't have been more perfect! I'm sure you would like a proper recap & I've just not had time but I'll leave you with a few pictures for now. None of the dress at the moment since we have our reception coming up soon! Sorry for the tease but I'm keeping it under wraps until then ;) Still have friends & family who may blog-lurk that will be there!!!

Enjoy these for now!!!
