How I met your father.

1. Tell us about how and when you met your love and what attracted you most to him.

I went out with my girlfriends for my birthday and they sang to me at midnight and he used that as an excuse to wish me a Happy Birthday and buy me a drink. At this point I was to drunk to drink it..whoops :) What attracted me to him was how compfortable he was. Right away we were silly and ourselves. There was never any fakeness with each other. We could be 100% honest. I also really love love love! his shoulders. Mmmmmm :)

2. Show us the very first {or one of the first} pictures you guys ever took together. {Feel free to show us more than one}

This is really embarassing.

Here's a couple better ones.

Me, Brannan and my weave.

St.Patricks day in the city.

Belly bumpin' in Las Vegas.

3. Tell us some of your favorite memories that you two had together.

Valentines Day. See below.

4. Tell us your favorite qualities about this man, what makes him "the one."

He is so hard working. He loves his family so much. He loves his nieces so much and is so great with kids. He's also hilarious and an excellent karaoke singer. He makes me smile and laugh when I don't want to.

 I knew he was the one on our first Valentines day. We went to the big pillow fight in the city, then dinner and a show. We parked on the backside of Van Ness and his car was broken into on the driver side window. I felt horrible. His tools, coat, and cologne was taken and there was glass everywhere. He handled it so well. He didn't get mad and start screaming and yelling. He didn't cry. He said "Well fuck! You're going to be cold on the ride home!" And I knew right then he was the one for me. I remember telling my best friend and she was speechless. (Her and I had a thing for losers and low lives) And we fell in love 2 weeks later and the rest is history.

5. Tell us what your "date nights" typically look like.

Dinner somewhere we couldn't bring the kids and a movie, or driving around complaining theres nothing to do lol. I made us a big fancy dinner at home the other night and we watched a movie as we ate. That was really nice. He and I are homebodies and very simple, give us a taco and an episode of SOA and were happy campers lol.

So that's all about my boo thang. Go link up with Becky and share yours!

Last night as a single lady!

The week before the wedding was the most stressful of my life. Brannan I both like to leave things until the last minute. He had to get his hair cut, we had to buy the boys shoes, I had to get gifts for the parents and him. Monday and Tuesday I literally scrubbed the house until it shined (like the top of the Chrysler Building! name that movie). By Wednesday, it was trashed. And my anxiety kicked into over drive. There were people and their belongings everywhere! We have a small house and 8+ people don't fit so well. Neither do their bags. But the kids had fun being with their cousins and Uncles. Friday we had a girls day! It was so nice to be with all the girls and just relax. We went to lunch then had our nails and toes done.

My Mama, me, Leah, Chelsea, Maria and Maria's mom, my godmother. Were missing Felicia (MOH) She was getting her hair done and My MIL Laura, who cooked for the rehearsal dinner!

Brannan is a huge Raiders fan. Like bleeds Black and Silver. He and the girls are always teasing each other because I was raised a Forty Niners fan and switched teams when we met. So they saw a perfect opportunity to get him at the rehearsal. It was so funny!

Standing by my man! Raiders!

I love that the groomsmen are peaking to see what's going on :)

Me and my lover Leah. (are boys are be sties too)


So Jaimie's nickname is Mini Mitts because he has tiny hands and Felicia has small hands too, so of course I need a picture.

Cheers! Last night as a single lady!

The Honeymooners!

I'm still getting pictures back and have to sort threw all of them, so in the mean time I'll share my favorite part of the wedding. The honeymoon :)

We left Monday after the wedding and drove 5 hours up to Fall River Mills, which is almost to the Oregon border. Holy Hell. We were in the middle of nowhere! It was so nice though, to just be quiet and still.

The View from our room.

Brannan fished all day Tuesday and I supervised. I'm really good at that.

He caught one!

It was catch and release only, so he threw it back but not before it shit all over the boat. I felt bad for the poor guy, he must have been so scared!

If you look closely at the tree on the left, that's a bald eagle flying. It was so cool to see one!

We left on Wednesday and drove down to Cloverdale. If you're ever in the area I highly suggest staying at The English Tea Garden Inn. The nicest B&B ever!

Much needed after a long drive!

Kendall Jackson Winery!

Food Pairing!

Seriously some of the best food I've ever had.

We had dinner at Francis Ford Coppola's winery. I wouldn't recommend eating there but it's a cool place to check out.

Yummy! Wine tasting is my new favorite hobby. It's also a classier way to say let's get shit faced.

Dry Creek General store makes a mean sammich.

And I'll be signing up for AA.

Hope you enjoyed our Honeymoon recap!
