I'm Back!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 2, 2013, 10:21 PM
This is incredibly belated, but thanks so much for the birthday wishes, everyone!

Ryan and I are gradually acclimating to the real world again after getting married. (!!!) We had a small backyard celebration near the beach. A cloud of dragonflies hovered overhead while we were setting up. We tied giant seahorse balloons around the yard, and one served as the backdrop for all the group photos. Ryan's sister also made us a crab piņata, which was filled with candy, tiny sea creature toys, and cough drops (thanks to Ryan's grandmother). The piņata committee decided that the crab looked too innocent to beat up, so they gave him angry eyebrows (a detail which greatly pleased me). The crab's carapace was a little too tough, so once the whacking stick got bent, we tore it open with our hands. Now I have a hoard of tiny sea creature minions (no cough drops though... maybe next time :().

Then there were... CUPCAKES. Taste testing them was probably my favorite part of the wedding preparations. We went with chocolate, chocolate orange, and raspberry. Prepare to drool:


Aw yiss... So, SO tasty. I ordered a dozen extra chocolate ones, which turned out to be a good move. All the leftovers for me! :evillaugh:

After the party, most people headed down to the beach. Ryan and his brother took surfboards, and I took my camera. Ryan's pretty okay at surfing, I guess. Here he demonstrates how to do a headstand:


Whatever. I can surf too. I've gotten to the point where I'm pretty okay at not falling off. :slow:

When we got back from the beach, the real world greeted us with The Week From Hell. I mean, no one died or anything, but it was pretty miserable. I coped by making COOKIES. Yes, because I can never have enough baked goods in my life. Part of what was so great about getting married was the BAKING LOOT. I'm in love with my new huge baking sheets, rolling pin, and cookie cutters. I also got tips and pastry bags for decorating. I had to test that stuff out to make sure it worked, right?


It totally did! And just look at how sassy those penguins are. My family has another penguin cookie cutter, but these are like 500% sassier. I also love my badass hammerhead shark cutter. He's not pictured here, but I'm sure at some point I can provide proof in cookie form. I had an actual cookie, but Ryan ate him.

As to your wedding gift, dA, thanks but no thanks. Your stars and hearts are super lame. Try dinosaurs and sharks or something. I got the old user symbols back with this. Ignoring how distracting and heinous the new symbols are, I need the old ones for my tagline. Friend + Frog = ? . . . =FriendFrog! That's comedy genius, people.
