Newlywed Nonsense

Okay folks I've finally emerged as your lawfully wedded Project Chick! It's been over 3 weeks since the big day and I THOUGHT life would slow down as soon as October 27 passed. But we've been busy unpacking wedding gifts and finding them a place to live in our home and moving my belongings from my parents' house to our house.

Needless to say, I'm itching to get my sewing machine situated and get on some of my projects that have been paused since February. Plus: It will be nice to do something at night that doesn't involve watching hours of Pretty Little Liars and eating copious amounts of my new favorite (no longer on serious low carb diet) snack, Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche ice cream. Seriously though, Mr. K and I need to get a grip, if they call college weight, "the freshman fifteen," then I'm afraid we're working on the "newlywed nineteen." If anyone knows where I can find motivation to not completely blow my pre-wedding weight loss, I'm interested. Do they sell it on Etsy?

Once I'm happy with the way it looks, I would love to show off how our cozy little house is looking. But at this rate, now that I'm 90% done moving in and organizing everything the way we want it, it'll be time for Christmas decorations! Ahh!

True Life: When Grooms Address Thank Yous
Did I mention we have TONS of very generous family and friends? Translation: We are about a third of the way through our seven thousand thank you notes we have to write...BONUS: There are a limited number of you who will be so lucky as to receive a special edition Kevin Kowalewski original handwritten Thank You note, with an added dose of humor.

Coming up: It's my turn to give back! Two of my bridesmaids are expecting little ones soon! I'm going to be trying my hand at being shower hostess!

Follow along with Jean's pregnancy on her blog. And the other bridesmaid/mommy-to-be will be revealed once I know she's made it Facebook official. :) Any shower tips would be appreciated!
