Mawiage. Mawiage is what bwings us togethah today.

My lovely bride and I were sealed in the Redlands, California temple 8 January 2011 at 11 am.
The ceremony was great. One of the best things about it was my whole family was in the temple together for the first time since our family's sealing almost 20 years ago.

Our reception was absolutely beautiful. We had so many people who helped us and we are so grateful for them.

We drove to California for the sealing and spent Christmas with my bride's side of our new family. We decided to take our time getting back and take our honeymoon. We spend three days in Vegas including a gondola ride, shopping, a tour of the Bodies exhibit and the Titanic exhibit and a sinful tour of the "Freemont Experience." We went on to Albuquerque (I finally figured out how to spell Albuquerque; thanks Lissa!) and then attended the Dallas Texas temple and spent the night there. We also had lunch with an old mission friend of mine.

We are back in Hammond and virtually unpacked.

Today, I have to brag. We went to Kirklands to look for some wedding stuff and we checked on an ottoman we saw there a few weeks ago. It was on sale and we thought it would be on further sale. It wasn't on sale but we noticed it was kinda dirty and a little scratched so we asked the sales associate if we could get a discount. It was originally $499 and on discount for $179. The sales associate said we could get 25% off for some sale. So we basically stole it! It is awesome.
