Pictures of Us

I realized I haven't posted any pictures in a long time, besides the dilapidated buildings. I don't have my wedding pictures yet, but here are some honeymoon pics.

Here is my handsome husband giving a thumbs-up to the hotel in North Myrtle Beach. It was a suite on the top (19th) floor with a full kitchen and balcony. It was bigger than the place we're staying in Ohio all summer. In fact, it rivals our apartment in North Carolina.

This is the view from our balcony. On the left side, you see the marsh, which is actually a lot prettier than I was expecting and on the right, of course, is the Atlantic Ocean. I LOVE the Atlantic Ocean. Unlike the Pacific, the water is WARM and the beachfronts are clean.

There are several Ripley's attractions in Myrtle Beach. Besides the Believe It or Not museum (which was actually kind of lame), we went to the Mirror Maze. Basically, it is just what is sounds like. A maze of mirrors. In this picture, you can see 2 reflections of me, but neither of these are actually me! Props to Jared for taking this picture.
And here we are looking slightly ridiculous at the beach right in front of our hotel. We had a really good time playing in the ocean. I especially enjoyed laying on my float and letting the waves lift me up. I think I'm going to take a float every time I go to the ocean from now on. Kept me way more entertained than just swimming in the water or trying to body surf.

And here is a picture of M&Ms with our faces on them! My dad surprised us and had these made for the wedding. The bottom white M&M is a picture of the bridge next to the gazebo where Jared proposed to me.

P.S. - No news on the stolen car yet. We made a list yesterday of all the things that were in the car and it turns out we lost a LOT more than we thought at first - about $2000 worth of belongings. It didn't seem like we had much in the car, but it adds up quickly because we had some pricey things - blackberry, waterproof digital camera (which I am very sad about), bike rack, tools, several shoes, gift cards, cash. We are still hoping and praying for a miracle.


  1. I gotta say...I love your Mitch Hedbergisms... lol

  2. 1) I Love the mirror picture. WHo knew Jared had that sort of talent?

    2)I have wanted to do those writing m&ms. I think they are so fun. I'm glad your dad got them.

    3)This is funny - I didn't realize that the M&M had a picture of the bridge. I thought it was a messed up picture of you guys in the negative - like your faces got erased but the background was there. I was obviously confused. Thanks for clarifying.
