s it was back to work today, even though i didn't feel like going... i've been sick since last tuesday - started with a sore throat and gradually moved into a bad head-cold with lots of coughing... thank GOD we didn't go on a honeymoon right away because i would've been miserable the whole time (bad enough i wasn't 100% over thanksgiving!)... as for when that will be - probably after my company's annual meeting, which is may 5-7, 2010... and where will we go? france and germany for sure, but we need to sit down and figure out how much time we have and where we'd like to go... :)

hard to believe that the wedding was only a week ago - seems much longer for some reason... people are still baffled at how we managed to pull something off, in about 3 months - i can't take ALL the credit though i should probably take 99.9%... if it wasn't for my mom, matron-of-honor, and coordinator at the Inn - it wouldn't have been possible (but being super organized AND a designer helped tremendously)... in all honesty - i can't tell you one thing that went wrong the whole day... my last-minute manicure was perfect, the weather was gorgeous, the flowers were beautiful, no one got into an argument, the photographer arrived early, i cried during the ceremony but not enough to mess-up my makeup, no one knew that i was in severe foot pain (cortizone shot didn't help), reception was awesome, food was very tasty, music was fun, booze was over-flowing, and all our friends & family had a great time... we couldn't have asked for anything better and am SO happy to be married to eric... :)

still can't believe i'm married though, seems so weird... i've officially changed my name to jodi megan weakland, and will soon be getting all my new credit cards and SS card in the mail... i've ordered new checks and labels, just need to get cracking on the passport... and magazine subscriptions... ;)

i won't have the real photos for another few days, but have collected a few from friends and family and thought i'd share... enjoy! :)

happy monday...

not used to being called "mrs."

after 4 years, 10 months, and 7 days - eric and i finally tied the knot this weekend... it was THE most wonderful day of my life and would do it all over again if i could (and maybe beat my 4-month planning record!)... we are incredibly happy, but exhausted and i promise to post more pics as i get them (will have official ones next week)... thank you for all the well-wishes and i promise to get back to blogging again soon... :)

good excuse

yea, so i'm getting married next week and i haven't had time to do anything BUT that... geesh! between ordering supplies for the reception, calling/emailing/texting the coordinator at the Inn, dealing with what/how much alcohol we need, finalizing the estimate, designing programs, menus, and favor jar-labels, putting together centerpieces, getting the rings, figuring out music, and ordering more beef (organice, grass-fed)... i'm sure i'm missing more, but that's the bulk of what i've been dealing with this week... more details can be found here... :-)

i've been going to the gym everyday, so that's been good - just trying to maintain at this point... i haven't lost my appetite either so maybe that will happen next week (one can hope, right)... i'll be at work until wednesday and then i'll be off until after thanksgiving... we're looking forward to going to state college this year too because a lot of eric's family, that can't make it to the wedding, will be there... i wouldn't be surprised if they top 100 people this year - crazy! :-)

let's see, what else... i'm getting my hair cut, colored, and highlighted tomorrow - will try and remember to take before/after shots... i'm also having a make-up test, to see how it will look for next week - i haven't had my make-up done since HS so this should be fun... again, i'll try and take before/after shots... also have a ton of wedding stuff to do... :-)

in between all the wedding stuff - eric and i managed to go to pittsburgh for a nice, long weekend... the weather was great (sunny and in the 70s) and i can only hope it will be like that next week (though i checked the weather and it says showers! no!)... we had to pick-up the beef for the reception, but also got to hang-out w/his parents and nephews... even went to see 'where the wild things are' and it was excellent (never read the book!)... everyone is excited about the wedding too, so it was nice to hang with the future in-laws...

well, that's all i got... i have some more lists i need to make and sort, but will do my best to update at least one more time before the wedding...

have a great weekend! :-)
