Seeing as I haven't posted in awhile... 

The wedding went very well, despite three solid nights of virtually no sleep beforehand, and various degrees of pre-wedding panic on my part.  The bachelorette party even went well despite my reservations (we went to a bar and did karaoke, a first for me).  I don't have many pictures of my own to post yet, but there are plenty up on facebook for those who are so inclined.

Now we're in the process of getting settled in.  We're actually going to have some real furniture for the first time in our lives.  It's kinda nice.  And every so often I just stop and think, huh, we're actually married.  We don't have to go our separate ways once school starts.  This is permanent now.  I still vaguely feel like I was at someone else's wedding and Chris and I are on a much-deserved vacation.  It's thrilling every time I remember that, though I'm starting to settle in to being a wife (!) and having a husband (!), so it doesn't happen as often now.

I'm hoping that everything will sink in a bit better once I get all my various official documents changed over to my new name.  This is proving to be a royal pain in the rear, because I'm missing another critical document required to get this done.  There's nothing like waiting in line for an hour only to be told that I need a _different_ marriage document, one which, in theory, will be sent to me by the county courthouse at some unspecified time in the future.  I suppose I just need to relax and wait for that one to come in before I bother with the rest.

That's all for now, as I have a ton of thank-you cards to write.  Seriously, I was overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends and family, which was largely responsible for us being able to _afford_ real furniture.  We also now have an awesomely stocked kitchen and what's generally turning out to be a pretty cozy home. 

Now as soon as our shiny new real furniture is delivered, we can stop sleeping on the floor and eating on the couch.  That would be awesome.
