Making up for lost time.

That's the best way to describe my lifestyle for the past week. Before my wedding, I was very strict with myself. I cut out things like peanut butter, cheese, and unnecessary carbs, and I worked out almost every day. Now that the wedding is over, I have been letting myself enjoy all the peanut butter and cheese I want! I haven't worked out ONCE. Nor have I blogged. I'm making up for lost time...and then some! I've decided to give myself until next week to get my eating habits and exercise back on track. For now... I can tell you that I've been loving oatmeal with white chocolate wonderful and blackberry jam, feta cheese on everything, popchips, and a whole lot of snacking!

Be sure to check back next week to see if I've gotten my act together yet :)

Time for a honeymoon recap! Bryan and I cruised to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau on the Carnival Miracle. To no surprise, our trip was full of beautiful beaches...
Being in love :)

But also...FOOD! Here are some of the highlights:

An exquisite tuna tartare appetizer.

Surf and Turf.

A perfect filet mignon.
Melt in your mouth. This was paired with wasabi horseradish mashed potatoes...drooool.

A (very large!) porterhouse.

Not a huge fan of the texture of duck, but see that little pizza creation on the side? TOO DIE FOR!

An overwhelming chocolate dessert platter.

And one of our favorites, white chocolate cake.
Which we ate all of...of course!

These pictures are hardly reflective of all I ate on this cruise. I'm talking three large meals a day (sometimes more)...multiple desserts at every meal...and lots and lots of indulging. Just as you should on vacation! Now...back to the grind!

From beginning to end, my wedding was absolute perfection.

Starting with an elegant ceremony and ending with a fantastic reception, the night was packed with delectable cuisine, outstanding entertainment, and unforgettable memories with family and friends.The best way to sum everything up is to (share a few pics and) say that it was, without a doubt, the best night of my life.

Dad walking me down the aisle...
My heart has never beat so fast!

Leaving the church.

Incredible location for pictures.
At our venue, The View on the Hudson.

And kisses for my new husband, the man of my dreams:)

Best. Cake. Ever.
Canoli and chocolate mousse.

And of course,
Lots of dancing!
