{Goodbye california}

i'm alive!

so yea..
i got married in vegas last week
did the whole 1940's wartime wedding thing
getting married on christmas army leave to someone who i have have been friends with/had feelings for for 7 1/2 years
luckily the feeling is mutual
we even daydreamed about marrying each other.. but were too afraid to say anything!

the journey to vegas was nearly identical to the movie the hangover
no seriously, it was
even down to the classic mercedes-benz driving through the desert
(gps took us through the desert.. literally. on a dirt road through the desert. mercedes-benzs weren't meant for off-roading!)
then later we accidentally locked the keys in the car so we had to break the back window to get in
my car deserves a medal of honor, it really does!

now my new husband h. and i are leaving tomorrow to ft. knox, kentucky
i've never lived outside of california, so it will definitely be interesting
and a bit awkward.. seeing as kentucky's state beverage is milk
but at least there is a whole foods 48 minutes away from where i will be residing

we are planning to honeymoon in iceland this summer
and have the reception this spring
haha it's all spread out.. but that's ok

i've already found a bakery that does vegan wedding cakes..
stephanie's bakery in ocean beach
whole foods will cater for the rest of the party
there's so much to do and plan!
i really want to have an old-timey, old-fashioned 1940's themed reception
we got my wedding ring at an antique store.. my fascination with antiquated things directed us to do so!
it's a white gold ring with filigree work and 7 diamonds
dated 1930's-1940's

at the same antique store we purchased this rad book:
i just can't wait to try out some new beverage recipes!

well, off to resume packing now ><
