Hello 5 readers...this is going to be short because we have a PILE of thank-you notes to be writing. The past week has been the GREATEST ever!!! The rehearsal dinner and wedding were absolutely perfect- everything went off without a single glitch. I was pampered for the few days leading up to Saturday, and I could easily get used to having massages/my hair and nails done by professionals regularly. I mean is that REALLY what Jessica Simpson feels like every day of her life??? I bet it gets old...
Anyway- the wedding was better than I dreamed and truly was a day I will treasure, remember, and think back to daily. I am so happy to finally be married and begin a new chapter of life with Brad Jones. I will be adding some pictures, but if you're willing to go through 13 pages of them, you can go to http://powell.easyphotoview.com/EventHome.asp and click on Amanda and Brad Jones, then click "view thumbnails" if you've got that much time to kill. :)
St. Lucia was completely PARADISE on earth. The negatives: winding mountainous non-seat-belted van rides where my life flashed before my eyes every 30 seconds, 90% humidity, and jellyfish. The positives: the picture book scenery, not hairdrying my hair for 5 days (because it would just be wavy as soon as I stepped outside), Francis (the St. Lucian waiter who I wanted to rescue and bring to the US), fresh pineapple every morning, pina coladas, and a sweet Caribbean tan to bring home.
I'm off to finish unpacking, review the new "family budget", and catch up on sleep. More pictures will come as I get them uploaded!
PS- I got all my hair chopped off today too! Woohoo- I'm officially looking like a little wifey. :)
