Okay, so I'll start at the beginning with the best news ever...Erin and I got MARRIED on Friday!!! Woop! I am easily the luckiest man in the world. This lady makes me uber happy!!
We have only gotten a few of the pictures back from our photographer, Adriel Henderson, but this is one of my favs:
|Erin and I on our wedding night|
Risking all sortsa bad luck stigmas, a week before the ceremony, we dressed in our finest and spent a happy afternoon posing and primping for our shutterbug.
|Erin and I looking very southern and proper|
Okay, so that is all we have of our formal wedding pics so far. More are being processed and we shall post a blog (or two!) with the pics. So, on to our honeymoon adventures!
The where! We stayed at the White House.
This place was all kindsa beautiful!
|The White House on the first night we arrived|
|Oh this little place? It's our country villa. We come here to get away from it all.|
|On the grand staircase. Sort of reminds of the one from Titanic|
|The formal living room|
|Erin plays me a little diddy on the baby grand|
|Our dining hall|

|Tried the iPhone's panoramic feature. It kinda looks like it's in an aquarium|
On Saturday we got a couple's massage--totally recommend!!--from a VERY zen, VERY Portland couple, then we hit the big city. Here are some image from our fun.
|My beautiful bride gazing out our hotel window|
|First time we went out to eat as a married couple. Burgers and fake orange cheese nachos!|
|Stopped in at Saturday Market and had our picture drawn. Something we had each wanted to do forevs!|
|The city is already decked out in Christmas lights. Just gorgeous!|
|Erin channels her inner warrior next to some interesting "art."|
|I don't believe any words are necessary|
|The king lives!|
|Found this awesome Mr. Rodgers sweater at a second-hand store. Sadly, I did not get it.|
|Peace out, dude!|
|Looking more gangsta than chill|
|Channel your inner panda|
|Yep, looking all George Castanza on my lounge chair in World Market|
|No trip to the city is complete without a trip to the book store|
|Visiting China Town|
|The people here are caaa-ray!|
|Yep, I'm gonna paste these suckers to my thighs for all time!|
|Did anyone get the number of that day in the city that hit us?|
So the big news from the next day was we got inked! We'd been planning it for a while, so as a wedding gift to ourselves we went to Adorned for a little tattoo action.
|Erin braving her way through the procedure|
|My bad ass lady with her new ink stain|
|Me with my ink stain|
|The family that inks together...|
|Afterwards we had to get bandaged up. Here we are looking all super-hero-like...ready to fight crime!|
It has been an amazing adventure with my lady. Though we are really both just regular homebodies--something that I just love about us--we still manage to have fun. Erin is my best friend and I am beyond lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life with her.
|In the end, it is just Erin and I, hand-in-hand|
So, win or lose, in sickness and in health, for better or worse, we are partners. I am so lucky that she is gracing my life by joining hers to mine.
Check out Erin's pictorial of our our weekend!
Until later, my friends, cheers!
