Anniversary Ticker

Mrs. Willis, Ireland is calling.

It had been forever since I updated my blog. Mainly because we don't have internet. I figured it was time when Carla sent me a message on Facebook informing me that I was behind. So where to much has happened...

Well Jordan and I are finally married! We have had an amazing summer together. Lets start there...

We got married on June 18th at the Richmond House in Richmond, Texas. It was so beautiful! Everyone always tells you to take it all in because it will fly by...well, they were right. I really don't remember anything after 6 o'clock. Okay I remember a sitting upstairs waiting for everything to start. And when I look back at the pictures...everything I was feeling at that moment comes rushing back. We had lilac and baby yellow flowers everywhere. The cake was amazing!! It was strawberry with whip cream and the frosting was pretty light. LOVED IT! However, it wasn't until after the wedding that I finally got to have a piece.

It was so beautiful! I am so thankful to have the wonderful man and amazing friends and family in my life. I truly enjoyed sharing this moment with them.

After the wedding we went on a cruise to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. In Jamaica we went to this beach party. The beach was beautiful!

We were able to see a storm slowly move over the island closer to us. It was so neat. When it finally reached us the lifeguard yelled "that is heading straight for us!!" then jumped off of the lifeguard stand (mind you people and children were still in the water) and ran for cover. We were cracking up!

In Grand Cayman we went swimming with dolphins and got to hold baby sea turtles!!!!!! It was so awesome! We took tons of pictures! However, those pictures disappeared. I went back to look at them when we got back and the whole folder was gone. Do you understand what that means? THE PICTURE OF ME HOLDING THE BABY SEA TURTLE (which I named Sanka) IS GONE!!!!!!! sad. And of course it rained on us in Grand Cayman as well. Yay.

After Grand Cayman we went to Cozumel and went snorkeling. It was so neat! After that we went to one of the beaches and hung around for a bit.

We went back to the pier and went shopping! Jordan was a good sport and let me buy a couple of things! He is so sweet. After that we were so tired and headed back to the ship. And guess what happened started raining. haha. Turns out all the rain was a tropical storm slowly building and was soon named Hurican Alex. That was fun. I really couldn't feel the ship move excpet for one night when I saw a curtin moving and I freaked! Of course it didn't help seeing a preview for Poseidon. Yeah good times.

The cruise was amazing! We loved every minute of it and I cannot wait to do it again. We met some great people from our area that we ended up having a lot in common with.

All in all it was wonderful!

So what has been going on after the cruise...lots of traveling. For July 4th we headed to Eastland to go to his grandparents lake house with the family. It was wonderful! We played scene it and I am happy to say that the women are still victorious! After we got back Jordan was offered the Calculus position at Saginaw. It was a long process, but he eventually accepted the offer! Then we went back to Katy for my usual Dr. appointments. We were there Monday and Tuesday. The Wednesday that we left we had a going away party for one the coaches we had to go to. That Thursday we headed to Andrews for Jordan's Dr. appointments and spent the weekend there with his family. We made sure that we got to spend equal time with everyone. So basically this whole summer we spent getting married (lol) and traveling. It has been fun, but all good things must come to an end. This Sunday I have to leave for school. Boo. It all went by so quickly, but it was one of the best summer's of my life.
