One week from RIGHT NOW...

 We'll be out taking pictures around Disneyland Resort property with our photographer, friends, and family.

The B's are Ready! Are you?!
We are so ready for this vacation, I can't even begin to describe it. With a week's worth of overnight work shifts behind us, this couldn't have come at a better time.

It really is amazing how all things work together in their own perfect timing.

I only have a few projects left to finish up - like putting together the signature frame we have planned instead of a "guest book" (won't work on that until we get to California), and finishing up a very special hidden Mickey that our Flower Girl will be carrying (Started on it yesterday - just need some better scissors to put some finishing touches on it), and finishing up our "just married" shirts for the park that day!  But we really can't wait for some down time together. For those keeping score, our honeymoon will actually be our very first vacation together. See, being married in the military means you spend more time apart than you do together - especially when shipyards are involved.

And that's the latest and greatest! It's back to work for me (J). S is sleeping off last night's shift.

Can't wait to celebrate with all of you very very soon!

California here we come!

Break out the T-shirts and the Sunglasses 'cause California, here we come! Our flight is booked. The dog watching has worked itself out (yeah!), and we're all but packed!

Speaking of 'packed' - this is what our schedule looks like for those that are curious:

8/7 Arrive in CA around 1pm. Zumba class for J in Escondido around 6:30pm-7:30pm. Then catching up w/ the boys (and the rest of family) at the Stone Brewery!
8/8 Up early to snorkel with Leopard sharks in La Jolla, followed by a leisurely day at SeaWorld and a seafood dinner with the Munderloh's.
8/9 Last minute wedding stuff and we're off to Anaheim! Linner(Lunch/Dinner) w/ the Humenay clan at the Rainforest cafe, check-in to the hotel before a night in the parks just the 2 of us style!
8/10  Disneyland all day w/ friends and family! Can't wait to see Carsland!  Today we'll be meeting with the WTTM crowd for the Sip n' Snack at Trader Sam's, and Sean will get to enjoy some guy time at a Stag Night/Bachelor Party! J will have a free night to roam the parks, chill in the room, whatever strikes her fancy Flyin' Solo style (a throw back to my Disneyland Annual Passholder days - Yeah for Single Rider Lines!)
8/11 We're going to a Character Breakfast at the Disneyland Hotel w/ the Matron of Honor and her family. We get to meet her youngest for the first time and are pretty excited about some character photo ops.  Then it's off to the rehearsal at noon and the Sip n' Snack to follow. After wards, Disneyland/DCA/downtime night!

8/13 Honeymoon Road Trip begins! Tonight we'll be checking into Buelton, CA.
8/14 Checking out of Buelton and exploring Solvange, winerys, and Hearst Castle before ending up in Salinas (near Monterey!) (This just happens to be my parent's 41st wedding anniversary - yeah!)
8/15-8/16 See the Monterey Bay Aquirium and explore the area (maybe a kayak trip depending on how the wedding gifts pan out) but we'll be heading into San Fran herself on 8/16.
8/16-8/18 - San Fran and nothern California! Sites include Muir Woods (redwood forest), Ghiradelli Square, the Peirs, China town, Walt Disney family Museum (of course!)... and probably a meal with the Norther Californian Munderloh's!
