Life has been crazy for the last month. I was busy planning 2 weddings (still in the process of planning one!), finishing our apartment, moving in, getting married, hosting my parents in Tegucigalpa for a weekend, and packing to come to KY for our US wedding. *sigh* I'm tired, and just now getting a little down time to update everyone.
Jose and I got married in Tegucigalpa on November 29. It was just a civil ceremony, but it was so much fun. It was nice to finally meet all of Jose's extended family (and there are A LOT of them) and I loved having my parents there to share the special evening with us as well. The evening started with us standing at the door to the room greeting all of our guests. After everyone arrived, we had the ceremony on the dance floor in front of everyone. Our parents and our witnesses were with us. Jose's uncle is a lawyer and performed the ceremony. After the ceremony we had dinner, drinks, and dancing. :)
We also finally moved into the apartment...3 days before the wedding. My parents and I stayed at the apartment until the wedding, and after they left, Jose moved in. I'd say we're about 60% done with everything. We are just lacking artwork on the walls, curtains, and new bedding for our bed.
Now I'm in KY, and planning our religious wedding for December 20th. Even though it's been very stressful to make these plans so last minute, I am THRILLED that I get to have the Christmas wedding that I've been dreaming about since I was a little girl. :)
I hope all of you can make it to the wedding. If not, we'll miss you!
