The Faint

A while back the Faint played a few shows in Omaha, and I was lucky enough to catch one!  What a fantastic show.  It was a sweaty mess of dancing and laughing and smiling the whole time.

Adam and I went to dinner with some friends before the show

Honeymoon

Four months ago, Adam and I were on our honeymoon!  We went to Estes Park, Colorado, and we had a wonderful time.  Here is the proof!

We rented a cabin at the YMCA camp there, and it was perfect.  No technology, and hikes everyday.

On our first day, we drove into Rocky Mountain National Park and made it up to about 9,000 feet.  We got about 50 feet from the car before we realized that, as Nebraskans, we were not prepared for hiking mountains in May.  The ground was covered in ice and snow, and it was drizzling.  So we drove down to 7,000 feet and found a better (aka clearer) path.  It was chilly and rainy, but perfect.  The hazy views were breathtaking.

Day two of hiking, we went in the opposite direction and we were almost too hot!  It's funny what a difference a couple thousand feet can make.  We hiked up to this lake on top of the mountain where we ate lunch.  As we were sitting there, this girl came running out of the forest from the other direction.  We chatted with her for a minute and it turned out she was a part of a running club that runs 10-15 miles through the mountains every weekend then gets breakfast.  Who does that??  Coloradans are nuts!!

We went to the Shining hotel too!  We got a drink at the bar, because duh.

Wedding Photos: Final Round

After four(ish) months, here's the final round of photos: dinner and dancing! 
 

What a fantastic feeling to walk into a room full of family and friends who are all there to celebrate with you!!






This photo pretty much sums up my brother and his wife...she's wondering what the hell he did, I'm sure.


We had a wonderful big band singer throughout dinner, and I really wanted to get up and dance! 










This was the look Adam had when the maid of honor called him "A Different Breed."




Here you can see my cousin elbowing a 9 year old in the face for the bouquet.  Always classic.


I love this photo for the ladies in the front, but all the faces in the background are PRICELESS.






Kristin repeatedly got under my dress like the sugar plum fairy.


I spent most of the evening on the dance floor, smiling my face off and getting down.  It was perfect.





The end!  Honeymoon photos soon!
