Our wedding: Sneak Peak!

My thanks to Amanda and whomever else had the extra camera so we could have these while we wait for the profesh stuff to get done. 

Wow, we sure were blessed with amazing weather, supportive family and friends to have such an incredible celebration. So lucky!

And for those of you wondering how married life is? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Sometimes we look at each other and say, "Really? It's only been a month and a half? I feel like we've always been married."

{Platos de comida sabrosa!}
So I am a part of a new family now.
{REAL enchiladas and REAL mole--man, I've been so blind to what Mexican food could be!}
And besides all the love and support and laughter that brings, I also get to eat fabulous food!
I mean we are talking, truly outstanding.

 {Someday, who knows, I may be half as good as Abuela.}

Last Saturday Nelssie and Ivan made Posole, during the all important Real Madrid Vs Barcelona game... Mama was on the phone for backup support and recipe concerns.
However, whenever someone scored a goal, Ivan and Nels would run downstairs to catch the replay, and I'd be left holding the phone asking in my terrible Spanish:

Me: Uh....Entonces, tres chiles diferentes
Her: Oh, si! Si! 
Me: Ok. y...que mas? uh...quantos er...spoons? de oregano? um...oh...sorry! My Spanish is so bad! NELSSIE! COME BACK UPSTAIRS!

Ha ha, I'll talk pretty someday.
