Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Newlywed Giggles

My 100th post! Amazing how fast this 100th post came! So, to celebrate I share with you a little bit about Mr. and Mrs. Newlywed Giggles.

We have been together for 5 1/2 years. Mr. Newlywed Giggle caught my attention because he was always funny (and cute of course). Fast forward a couple of years and Mr. Newlywed Giggles proposes to me on November 3, 2007. Our wedding took place on November 16, 2008 and we had an absolute blast! I danced ALL night and ate my food, also some of Mr. Newlywed Giggle's food, and even ate my cake too!

Below are some of the questions some of my readers asked me.
How did we meet?
Mr. and I met while working at Kohl's during our college years. I worked in the jewelry department and he worked in the Loss Prevention department. We actually had to keep our dating a secret because associates were not suppose to date loss prevention associates for some stupid reason. But we dated anyway. You know, because we are risk takers like that! (for those people who know me, you know this statement is SO NOT true about ME.)

Was it love at first sight?
We were chatting up like friends before so I think love at first sight wasn't really on our minds. But after a couple of dates and hanging out with each other. Some part of me knew that he was going to be stuck with me for a long time. ;)

What was the most romantic thing he ever did for you?
He proposed! Well, of course a proposal is romantic but the though process behind it was the MOST ROMANTIC ever! I love dolphins and he knows that. So for our proposal, he took me to an underwater viewing area for the dolphins tank at Sea World in Florida. He got down on one knee and proposed to me while having some one take pictures. The best part? In the background of our proposal pictures, there are dolphins swimming around AND he bought be a stuffed dolphin before which I was holding.

When are you going to have a baby?
Ahhhh... the question that everyone asks! Well, Mr. Newlywed Giggles and I say that we will wait about 2-3 years to have babies. We want to take full advantage of loving each other and nurturing our marriage so we can be best prepared for a family. We are taking advantage of traveling and making sure we are settled.

Below is a picture reel of us from beginning to now. Enjoy!
Soon after college graduation

As you can see here, I'm 5' 0" and he's 5' 11". (yes, that big ole cup was a pina colada with lots of ALCOHOL!)

Having fun with friends for my birthday.

When he proposed to me while we were in the underwater viewing of dolphins in Florida.

I love the dolphins in the background!

Enjoying ourselves at a banquet months before the wedding.

Our wedding day. It was a bit cold (40 degrees) but we made the best of it.

I love this picture because it cracks me up! My six foot veil was "attacking" him. lol

Dancing the night away!

Of course I have to make sure all my guests giggle at our cake topper!

Formal night on our honeymoon cruise!

Enjoying St. Thomas!

Spending a weekend in Vermont with close friends. Also our first time snowmobiling.

Happily ever after.
