So ready for the gym

Well my friends. It's been crazy, busy and.... Fun!

I am married!

Mindy Burton is what I will be known as. And I am so excited to start this new journey.

The wedding itself was more than I could have hoped. Our reception was beautiful, we greeted guests for a while as they ate some wonderful catered food(at least that's what I was told, I probably had two bites of our dinner because there was no time for us to eat!)

We cut the cake, I threatened to hold out if he shoved it in my face. I danced with my Father, and then he played us two songs. One being "love me tender" by Elvis Presely, I was a little ready eyed while I danced with my fiancé. If i haven't mentioned it, I kind of have issues with my Dad.

After the slow dancing, we got our part on as the DJ dimmed the lights and the fast beat started. I was afraid people wouldn't dance, and at first people weren't.

P would want to talk to guests, I wanted to keep up the dancing. Michael Jackson songs were played often(as I requested) and the night went by fast. It wasn't until after the dress was off that i finally felt soooo tired. I thought I wouldn't be able to sleep, but I was mistaken. I said goodnight one last time to my fiancé, and before I knew it I was back to our apartment trying to pack for our honeymoon.

It's hard for m to pack, I hate packing...I don't know what it is, but I would rather eat a stick of butter than pack for trips. Gross, I know.

Plus!!!! How am I supposed to pack with a Van FULL of presents?? Hello?? A.D.D plus hate packing = trouble. P went to take a shower as I continued looking at the loot, and then Adderall kicked in and I realized how little time I had before we had to leave for the actual ceremony.

For those who know about the Mormon faith, we have temples throughout the world. Many members choose to be married there. The temple is a sacred place for us members who are worthy and wanting to do so. Ha sorry for the minor religious talk. Temple marriages are also not traditional like you may see on movies, or real life. Only those who have been through the temple are allowed to attend. This probably doesn't make sense to you, or seem fair... But please do not comment negatively about this, I love my religion and was thrilled to be able to marry in the Temple. Because I went through a lot of crap last year, and was not the person I am today.

Soooo anyway. After we came out of the temple we had pictures taken( I will put pictures up when I get home) and let me tell you, some Mormons are very rude, and not very Christian. There was another couple waiting to take our spot for pictures. There was a mother of the bride being a fat witch. "how much longer, you aren't suppose to take this much time"

As Cartman from the cartoon South Park might say "I'm going to kick you square in da nuts!". It's out wedding day tubby, why can't we be happy? I am! And you should go eat more foo an shut up.

He he. We had a luncheon with the family and then we were finally free to start our honeymoon as Mr and Mrs Burton.

Sunday we spent the day shopping, and you know doing adult stuff. We took a red eye Monday morning to Miami Florida. Where our cruise ship was waiting.

The cruise was okay. We both agreed it was kind of full of trashy people. Like the people that drool an feed at buffets, or get hammered at 10:00 in the morning. Or the ones that smoke in the most inappropriate places. I was afraid sometime when we would get our food, there would always be the "feeders" behind my shoulder, their eyes wide open in a daze because I wasn't getting my food quick enough.

Gag me. It's just food, fattening food that is causing my bowels issues.

Okay the good part about he cruise: Nassau, an island in the bahamas. We just took off on foot, and I swam in the Ocean for the first time in my life!!!! The first beach was... Painful. Lots of rocks, I obtained several bruises, but it was AWESOME! We continued walking around the island, it was cool to see the "real" island. Not the touristy parts. The second beach we went to was so much fun, a little less rocky, but ultra sandy. Exfoliated my whole body :) P found some guy on the beach that rented Jet Skis, and my baby wanted to do that badly, so off we went. I had my $1500 camera in the front compartment, that terrified me more than the big waves we were jumping. In fact, one of the waves I nearly flew off!!! What went through my head?

Shit my Camera
There could be sharks in this water

We survived, and it was a blast.
Yesterday we went to Coco Cay. The island it's self was dumb. It was just a tourist place, but the highlight from there was snorkeling. It was cloudy and windy, but we bought non refundable tickets from the cruise, so we decided we'd be tough and give it a try. Luckily the Caribbean sea is very warm, and other than an occasional wave dumping water in my breathing tube, it was magical. At one point we were looking at an air plane crash, there were a ton of fish. So many of one kind that it scared P. Ok. It scared me too, they got so close to us!!! We are babies.

Overall the cruise itself, silly. But we made it fun. I am so excited to eat healthy food. Give me an apple and a cucumber. Sigh.

We are on the air plane now, our journey home to real life. To our messy apartment, and wedding gifts. I am happy.

And we are going to the gym tomorrow
