Random Tuesdays 12/25/2012

Merry Christmas from Random Tuesdays! 

It's our Christmas tree, decorated with (fittingly) random decorations.It's the first time we've had a full size tree and we realized on Saturday that we don't have enough ornaments for it. Luckily the local discount store had a bunch of stuff on sale, so this is our tree decorated with the sale rack items! The garland is midnight blue btw, not black :) The round cross stitch decorations are compliments of my husband's amazing grandparents and the photoframe decorations are from our Nebraska wedding Christmas tree.

This is the last Random Tuesdays of the year. It's been a good one, see you next year!

Second First Anniversary :)

Today is the first anniversary of our second wedding and to celebrate it I'll post a bunch of photos from our Nebraska wedding. So be aware, wedding photo flood follows!

Bride getting prettied up by the groomsman's sister (who is also matron-of-honor's sister-in-law, small town)

Wonderful bridesmaid helping the bride get dressed.

Time to say I do again :) There's our lil man in the bottom right corner!

Getting blessed :)

Our transportation, a Cadillac Escalade

Some bubbly in the car

Arriving to the venue

Some decorations

Christmas-y treats

Our cakes, yummee!

The head table

Citygirl-blogger found these restroom signs funny :)

After eating plenty there was some dancing...

...since we had a great dj!

Some more dancing...

...and then some more dancing, I think this is the cupid shuffle :-)

And some toasting...

...and group hugging :)

This was our last song (you'll most likely have to watch it on youtube):
And yes, it was the Glee version ;)

I had such a good time going through these photos from a year ago, what a fun wedding and lots of great memories!

Husband I are going to the movies tonight to celebrate, yay! :) 
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
