Friday the 13th (a day late....)

Yesterday, Griff and I would have had our wedding....if we hadn't been especially marriage itchy and jumped on a plane to Vegas and married in our semi-secret little ceremony. It was very weird yesterday thinking about all the friends and family that would have been over, the wedding chaos that would have ensued, and hopefully all the laughter and good times that would have happened.

Even with thinking about the 'what might have been's', I don't regret our Vegas decision for a moment. It was so perfect, intimate and fun and I have so many memories that I'm thankful that I didn't have to share with anyone. It was just for us. Moreover, I can't even stand the thought of all the lost months of wedded bliss that we would have missed out on, and needless to say, I definitely don't think Bumble would be growing right now.

Our 1 year wedding anniversary is right around the corner, and it's been the best year. We have joked that if the first year is supposed to be the hardest, then we expect we're in for smooth sailing.

I posted a picture of the wedding inspirations we had for our Big Day that never was. We talked this week about how much fun it really would have been. I think our friends would have had so much fun, and laughed a lot (for example, I wanted The Muppet's "Somebody's Getting Married" to be played while guests would be seated...might not be everyone else's sense of humor but it's definitely mine...). Some of the elements featured above did make it into our Vegas wedding, and even into our 2 receptions. Unfortunately, we still have yet to sort out a honeymoon. Maybe one day!!!

Secret Keepers

I've been a horrible blogger as of late, mostly because I have been keeping the biggest secret in the world!!! Well, sort of keeping it. The closest of friends knew, and family knew, but general public was kept in the dark while our little Bumble has been growing. Which means, I haven't wanted to blog about anything else because a majority of all thoughts and feelings have centered around how this pregnancy has made me feel and the excitement that's been building as baby has been growing. 

Even my knitting has been affected (effected? day I'll learn to differentiate between the two of those....). I was working on a jumper for myself, but I can't find the energy to finish it. Intarsia knitting is difficult and time consuming and requires a lot of concentration. But I only have one more sleeve to go and then I'll have my first finished knitted jumper! I did start on a blanket for Bumble the other evening tho, so hopefully that will help me get my knitting groove back. 

There's lots of nausea, a little sickness and waning tiredness, but my life is so so good. Here's a pic of Bumble from our first scan. I'm afraid I can't rotate it, but if you tilt your head you should be able to make it all out fine and dandy.
