a story.

Photobucket
once upon a time, there was a girl, who decided that she wanted to travel the world. so she left her job and spent her whole life savings and more to go to australia and fiji. she went scuba diving in the great barrier reef. she ordered 3 large fries with friends her friends and got enough fries to feed to all the people on streets. and they did. she went surfing, and repelling. she even got to ride a sailboat at dawn.
Photobucket
she ate the best burger she had ever eaten in her entire life. the lot burger. you
should try it. trust me, you will not be let down. she thought her life was complete..
Photobucket
she also ate kangaroo. it was very delicious. but smelled like poo while cooking.
Photobucket
frogs lived in her toilet. she went skydiving, and fed baby kangaroos and wallaby's.
her ship wrecked in fiji, and they had be rescued. it was quite the ordeal. she wasn't sure if she would ever get back home. she wasn't sure if that was a bad thing though... okay i lied. she would miss her family like crazy.
Photobucket
she came back and was the tannest she had ever been in her entire life. no one
she knew ever thought it would be possible for her to be tan. but she was. once.
Photobucket
then she re-met this dashing man. and this was the first picture ever taken of them.
Photobucket
and it wasn't the last. they went to vegas together... had their first kiss there.
and it wasn't the last...
Photobucket
and then they decided that they should probably get married. because they would probably have a hard time finding anyone else in the world who would put up with their crazy ways and wacky antics.
okay, mostly her. but still.
Photobucket
they got all dressed up and had some fancy shmancy pictures taken.
Photobucket
and then they got married on friday the 13th. people said that was bad luck.
but they would have to disagree... they toasted with dr.pepper, and had their first dance to this song.


they went back to vegas for their honeymoon.
and then went back again on their first anniversary.
they are classy people.
Photobucket
and then they kissed on top of a mountain. and it was awesome.

for the record, i am mostly posting these because i lost most my pictures in the posts about all this stuff.
and didn't want to go back and entirely re-do all those posts. because i am lazy.
so here is a condensed version of what got deleted...
and wait, what's that? no dog pictures in this post? you thought you would never see the day did you?!

p.s. mosey has learned to sit and has almost learned to lay down. we are so proud of him! he is crazy. he really is. but i guess he fits right in :)

What a sweet post. It's cool to see pictures of your trip. I totally want to do something like that one day. Well, I guess joining the Peace Corps for me is like your trip for you. Both awesome. Good work on training your puppy so quickly.

Sam said...

I'm so happy you are reposting pictures :) This made me miss Australia! And I had a burger JUST LIKE THAT in Oz! With egg and everything! I would never put egg on a burger here, but it was delicious in Australia.. And I've probably said this a million times in your posts but you are soooo pretty! I'm jealous! haha. but really, you should go into bridal modeling!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

SO CUTE!! you are seriously too too too WAY too adorable!! i love it!!!

Michael and Mindy said...

Okay are you serious? Could you BE any freaking cuter? Probably the most photogenic person ever. Not kidding. Way cute pictures. You and Sean are perfect together. Loved teh Figi and Australia pictures. How fun is that? I'm jealous. Loved this post. I was honestly thinking it was gonna end with something about how now the couple is having a baby. I know you say it will be a while, adn I'm totally cool with that, but I was hoping :) And here is my reason: when I was single and my friends were getting married I was like, WTH. Then I got married and I was like, everyone should get married. Then all my friends started having kids and I was like, are you serious? No. Then we had Dane. Now I'm like, everyone needs to have a baby. I guess it's like when you have something good and want everyone to share, ya know? Anyway, no pressure from me on having a baby. But I'm excited for when you do! Aaand, that was not the point of my comment. This post is so cute. And you are so cute. Seriously so photogenic and look perfect in every picture. I hate you. But not really. Because I'm really just jealous...

{The Huffakers} said...

You are beautiful and amazing and I love stalking your blog. P.S. Where in Fiji did you go? I've been there too... it's amazing.

Annie Kennedy said...

Kudos to you for trying kangaroo - I haven't. Not when they are so common to see dead on the side of the road, and if you have the windows down, well, it isn't pleasant. And if they've been out in the hot sun for a long time, they get really big like balloons and then the crows come to take a bite and they explode... sorry. Getting off track. No. I haven't eaten kangaroo. :S

I too got a little teary eyed when you met Sean. What can I say? I am a sap! :)
