So now that my brothers, and sisters have started blogging, i am now getting in trouble from them for not blogging. First David called and told me I was not good at blogging, then Christy called me and told me she was mad at me for not blogging, and then she told me that she talked to Emma earlier and she said she was sick of pulling up my blog and seeing my wedding dress... I guess now I have to be better! Well the big horrible test is now over! I had a lot of support from everyone, Christy and Emma brought over dinner the night before, with balloons and a bad full of stuff that was needed,( like breakfast, snacks, drinks, brain-food) you know the works! Then David and Jenny brought ice cream, which if you know me, was perfect. Then I got phone calls from the whole family, and our friends wishing me luck, and what i think helped the most was that i found out i was on 9 prayer lists, Josh gave me a blessing, and I was in many prayers that morning and night. So if i didnt pass, i dont know what else would of helped.

These are just fun pictures when we moved into our house! Josh and I scored a California King bed, that is half water bed, so these are the water tubes (or whatever you call them) that go in the bed. I guess he got too tired just carrying one at a time, so then the task started! Dane was nice to come over and help us move all our stuff, and then had fun seeing how many of these water tubes they could carry at one time!
These are our killer blue couches. We were able to rent them from the apartment complex for ten bucks a month, which is a great deal, but its funny the first time we sat on them, you dont sink at all, and the back of the couch reaches about the middle of josh's back, and then if he lays down he hangs off almost a foot... it was so funny when he sat on them for the first time! I guess I will have to say we are lucky to have these couches now because before this, we didnt have any furniture and we would put a suitcase down on the ground and put a blanket over it to make it our nice table cloth, and thats what we ate on for the first couple weeks, but i guess that's part of it!

the wedding

I know, I know, you would think that something as big as getting married would make us make a post, but we have been so crazy busy this week... Shannon would not stop getting off my case until I did, so I figured it was time! Josh just had his big test week, three tests in three days. Crazy i know... i don't think he did as good as he had hoped with the crazy month we had, and missing school a few days he thinks he did okay! Being married is so much fun, I never thought that the two of us could get any closer, but i just love Josh to death, and we have so much fun together. It has been so nice to be able to go home with each other, and not have to say good night. This is just the dress and veil, all ready in the closet... my mom got it all steamed, cleaned and together for me before I got back to Texas!This was our project the night before... Kambria, Sandra, Lindsey, Me, Brittany, John, David, and Brian were all in an assembly line rolling silverware for the reception. This is were my two and half years of Olive Garden skills came in!

This is my mom the morning of the big day, she woke up us girls that morning with wedding/love songs, and she made us blueberry muffins and brought orange juice for breakfast, isn't she so cute!! Just waking up for the big day!! Time to get ready! I had Lilly do my hair, and then Lindsey my sister do my make-up... They both did such a good job!
Were Married!!!

Our first kiss publicly as Mr. and Mrs. Petersen!
Here are just some of the pictures that were taken on my camera, when i get the others I'll post them in an album for y'all to see! This was seriously the best day ever, the weather, was perfect, the flowers were perfect and we had so many people there that we cared about. I am so grateful to be a Petersen, and to be a part of there family, they mean so much to me, and i cant express how lucky I am to be loved by such great people, and most importantly, Josh!

I can't tell you how grateful both Josh and I were to have everyone fly out to Texas, and all the work that went into this day. The person we have to thank most is mom... the tent set up, the food choices, the cakes, the flower arrangements, the D.J., the photographer, the video-o-grapher, helping pick the dress, the bridesmaid dresses, the tiara, the veils, the carriage ride to the hotel, planned out the schedule (which everyone loved) and I'm sure many other things that went on behind the scenes were all planned by my mom. I am so grateful for her and my dad, and for everything they have always done.
