Wedding Bells & Weekend Bliss!

I had SUCH a great weekend that I think it's going to take me 2 days to spill my guts about it :) However- Becky has been hosting some pretty awesome Show & Tell link-ups and I didn't want to miss out, either. I've had quite a few new readers jump on board (THANK YOU!) and so I thought I'd link-up and they can get the scoop ;)


Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about your special day.
Yes, married officially 1 year and 3 months tomorrow ;) You can read ALL the wedding recaps here including stories about our crazy wedding coordinator, a 70-year-old DJ and my bouquet breaking.

Show us some wedding pictures. Either yours or of some that you love.
There are just a couple snapshots of our day. Check out our first look, the bridal party,  the reception and lots more on the wedding tab!

How about the engagement? Tell us your story: You MUST go here and read about how J totally surprised me in the most perfect way. Yes. On an NFL football field. 

Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo.


Engagement photos done November, 2010.


***********************

Now I wanted to share just the first little bit of our weekend. We decided a 'staycation' was much needed. So we booked a hotel room for 2 nights in a city about 35-40 minutes away and headed out right after work Friday night.


We took in a local frontier-league baseball game and had SO much fun.
Cheap fun, might I add!





Meeting the cute mascot!
And an awesome fireworks show after!!
 With all their tickets under $12, much better prices on food/beverages, constant contests, giveaways and t-shirts thrown into the stands…. you really couldn't beat the experience! If you live anywhere near a frontier or minor league team, I highly suggest checking a game out!

Well, this post has officially gotten really, reallllllly long, especially for a Monday, so I'll save the rest of my recap for tomorrow! ;) What are your fave ways to have cheap fun?!

Have a great day everyone!!

-Erin
