Life, as it happens.

I quite realize that no one ever checks this anymore. I wonder why that is?

It's not like I completely abandoned it.

No, not at all.


Oh, right. I did.

Anyway, in the interim six or seven months since my last post, I got married. I'm now MRS. Anonymous Midwest Girl!

Here's me, about to be married. Hi about-to-be-married me!


Hey yourself, handsome.

Sigh, I still love my ring. This reminds me, since she set this shot up specifically to show her branding colors, these pictures were taking by the fabulous and extremely girl-crush worthy Darbi G, with the assistance of the equally fabulous Stacy Reeves.


Warning: we're bringing it, just ahead.

Oh, it was BROUGHT, yo.

Here's our wedding party.


I know, you didn't even there there was ONE person that cool in the Midwest, much less eight of us. Well, you know now. For future reference.

Here's us ACTUALLY getting married!



Caption: Holy crap, did I just do what I think I just did??


Here's my sister slash maid of honor giving her speech. All I heard was "blah blah blah most beautiful bride blah blah blah." Just kidding. Although I'm sure that was in there somewhere. In reality it was a perfect toast involving The Princess Bride.


Aww, isn't my husband cute? Squee! I love him! Sorry, got caught up in the newlywed bliss zone there. Please don't puke on your computer.

Here's our best man announcing to the world that AMBF (now AMH?) doesn't know how to do his own laundry.


Sadly, it's true.

Our first dance, where we somehow overcame history and did not trip over each other.


Then there was a lot of drinking and dancing. And dancing and drinking.




Of course.

The traditional wedding s'mores.


We've now lived happily ever after for two months. Now just 600 or so to go....

P.S. In case you're wondering, I kept that NKOTB wallpaper up until just a few months ago, when I replaced it with an Obama victory one. Sometimes, though, when I've had enough hope, I kind of miss Joey's smoldering face in the morning.

I totally have a crush on Darbi G. Oh wait. That's me. Well, I have one on you. :)

Congrats, you make a fine looking anonymous midwest couple!

Nice. I made the pics. I'm awesome.

Bite Me said...

Congrats, you make a beautiful couple! I haven't quite kept up with my blog either, though nobody reads mine anymore either. ;-) Good to see you're doing well. Btw, if you're wondering who the hell I am, I'm a loyal reader, but only a very occasional commenter, and fellow midwesterner.

Whoops-- I accidentally posted this on the NKOTB wallpaper post below... let's try this again...

Beautiful photographs! And congratulations!

I've been away from the blog for a bit too.

Believe in each other, be there for each other and respect each other's moments... good or bad.

It's worked for the wife and I for over 31 years.

Great to see you posting again.

AMBF is now Anonymous Midwest Husband? Or is it Anonymous Midwest Unaccountably Lucky Bastard?

I sure miss your blog.

nic said...

I just stumbled on your blog. I LOVE your dress! It's so pretty! Looks like you had a lovely wedding. :)

Mr. Toast said...

Well this is WAY late but let me say CONGRATULATIONS. The smile on your face in those pics is priceless. Mazeltov!

Oh. My. GOd. You're alive. I don't know what I'm more surprised by - that you're married or that you posted!
Congrats AMG. I know you guys are in love so it's got to be right.
Now keep the damn posts coming.

I had previously bookmarked your blog and just revisited. You got married in the meantime - yay for you!

My wife and I attended a wedding last weekend. During the ceremony, when the pastor said "let us pray", the fire alarm went off. Seriously.

Later, at garter-toss time, the groom couldn't find the garter on her leg, and he had to look up her dress to find it! I'm still trying to figure out if that was okay or not...

Congratulations :D
