I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

Wedding Recap ("borrowed" from Sew Infertile")

Thanks for the idea Sew Infertile!  Love it!

1.  1. Where/how did you meet: We met at the University of Miami.  I was an undergrad and he was my TA.  Scandalous!

2. 2. How long have you known each other: 7  years

3. How long after you met did you start dating: We met a year before we started dating.  The following year…during band camp (yes, yes I know…it was this one time at band camp) we started dating after a hurricane party at my house. And yes, when you live in Miami, you have hurricane parties the second that school is cancelled.

4. How long did you date before you were engaged: We dated for a year and a half 

5. How long was your engagement: 1 ½ years…he wanted a long engagement…I didn’t.  He won.

6. How long have you been married: Almost 3 years

7. What is your anniversary: May 19th

8. How many people came to your wedding reception: 110

9. What kind of cake did you serve: Key lime cake with key lime frosting….and I can’t remember what the other 2 layers were.

10. Where was your wedding: Key West, Florida.  We wanted a destination wedding so that we would have a smaller guest list.  FAIL!  Everyone we invited showed up.  Guess everyone loves Key West as much as we do!  We were married on a dock over the water and had our reception outdoors at a place called Kelly’s (which is the old PanAm headquarters)

11. What did you serve for your meal: Everyone knows brides don’t remember what the food was…but I think guest could choose from steak, coconut shrimp, or a pasta dish

12. How many people were there in your bridal party: 5

13. Are you still friends with them all: Absolutely

14. Did you or your spouse cry during the ceremony: No, we both were choked up though

15. Most special moment of your wedding day: Seeing his big smile when I came down the isle and having my daddy give me away.

16. Any funny moments: My husband surprised me by having the college mascot come out at the reception.  He was drunker than ten Indians!  Nothing like a gigantic ibis stumbling around the wedding!

17. Any big disasters: I cried my eyes out while getting my hair done because it looked like Helen Keller did it…nothing like the picture. Thank god for veils right?

18. Where did you go on your honeymoon: We did a tour of Costa Rica…we went to San Jose, La Fortuna (home of an active volcano), Jaco, and Tamrindo (where we stayed at an all inclusive resort…well a hut really.  We were one of maybe 4 couples there.)

19. How long were you gone: 7 days

20. If you were to do your wedding over, what would you change: 2 things…my dress…the boning did some crazy things and looked ugly by the end of the night….and definitely have a new photographer…because she turned out to be a scam artist who’s house “caught on fire”….amazing that it has “caught on fire” for all of the other brides weddings she did.  Thank god for facebook and digital cameras.

21. What side of the bed do you sleep on: furthest from the door  (ditto)

22. What size is your bed: Queen

23. Greatest strength as a couple: Communication and trust

24. Greatest challenge as a couple: without a doubt, infertility.  I can’t say our marriage has been perfect.  We had a few months that were really rough about a year ago (nothing divorce worth), but we have built such a great foundation moving forward that I don’t know what I would do without him.

25. Who literally pays the bills: He does….he takes care of all of our financials.  I really need to be better about helping him, but he is wonderful for managing our household in that manner. 

26. What is your song: Good Morning Beautiful by Steve Holy

27. What did you dance your first dance to: Good Morning Beautiful

28. Describe your wedding dress: see pics.

29. What kind of flowers did you have at your wedding: My bouquet was mostly star gazer lilies.  It’s the flower my husband first gave me while we were dating.

30. Are your wedding bands engraved? No.


  1. How fun is this post! I am totally going to steal it from you now and do my own! I'm glad you stumbled onto my blog and I'm excited to start following your journey.

  2. LOVE THIS!! Beatiful pix!!! You had me totally cracking up...Helen Keller did your hair?!?!?! LOL Thanks for the laugh...espcially today since I'm feeling so icky. :)

  3. Thanks for sharing! My photographer totally screwed me, too -- he up and moved to Florida (wedding was in MD) and never gave us our album. Luckily we got the full resolution digital shots but we were out a lot of money for that album! Your honeymoon sounds awesome ... I have heard such great things about Costa Rica!

    Thanks for the heads up on the pineapple. I did some digging even before I saw your comment and found info going either way, so I actually only ate like 1/4 cup before I was like, you know what I think I will just hold off to be safe! =)
