Lately in the last year. Yeah, it is official- i am at the bottom of all of my friend's blog rolls. So, here is a photo update of the last several months (be prepared to see many pictures of me making the exact same face, it seems to be my signature look)
We finally went on our honeymoon, a year late, so i guess it was more of a anniversary trip. We went on a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean. The ship departed from New Orleans, so we spent half a day exploring the town. I emphasize day, i don't think i would ever go at night. Then we headed out on the open ocean. The first day was just spent getting through the gulf. We explored the ship and went to the lamest magician ever and ate some food. The next day was my favorite. Our port of call was Costa Maya, Mexico. We decided to travel about thirty miles out of town and see some recently excavated Mayan ruins, Chacchoben. They were very fascinating.

we had to climb a stairway up to the temple. "Julian, take a picture of me working so hard." "You're on the bottom step, Emilee!"

the temple at sunset (don't mind my shiny face and crazy hair-it was crazy humid)

Our next port of call was Belize City, Belize. We don't have any pictures. Yeah, epic fail. But...we have memories. we went tubing down a river that happened to be underground in a cave. When we finally emerged from the cave and my body was kissed by the tropical sun, Julian exclaims, "Oh my gosh, your legs are soooo white!" Seriously? We have been married for a year!

The next port of call was Roatan, Honduras. So fun! We went to the beach and got rained out so we went to an iguana farm.

they actually would let you pet them

yeah, it was beautiful there! (again, ignore my hair)

The last port of call was Cozumel, Mexico. We walked around the port during the morning and then went snorkeling in the afternoon.

my husband has a cute nose- so long and straight
this guy's butt was eating his pants AND shirt! I had to take a picture

The next week, my sister got married. Weddings are way more fun when it is not your own.

my dad, me and rachel (the bride)

me and little baby Hunter (my nephew)

Also, as of late I have started running- we did our first 5K Easter weekend and have another planned in a few weeks.
After the race (again, please ignore my disgusting hair)

And of course, what would a post be without a little kitty-love?

A day at the zoo

A few weeks ago Julian and I spent the weekend up in Houston. We spent the morning at the temple and then went to World Market and finished up our adventures at the Houston Zoo. It was blazing hot, but we managed to make to all the animals and take a few pictures.In honor of Independence Day...

you would not believe the smell in that bubble-it was gross!
yay! i'm a llama again

i am just as white as the goat! bleet!
the lion sleeps tonight

i really suck at taking pictures. Julian's camera is really complicated. Also, he looks very sexy and responsible with his cell phone holster AT THE ZOO!!!! BAAA

The very next weekend in Yoakum, Texas there was a festival that featured white tigers, including two babies. Here is a conversation from that afternoon:
me: Julian, I know you love me because you took me to see the baby white tigers
Julian: yep, I know you love me because you are letting us go to a chinese buffet after
That is true love, folks

This is the daddy tiger getting ready to eat chicken

yum yum yummmmmm
mommy and the babies!

so close, yet not close enough and yeah I know, never wear a white shirt again-it scares young children.

Wrong side of the bed

"What was that for, Miss?"
"Oh, I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning...literally." (I can't believe I actually got to use that line at school) Yeah, this morning around three I woke up suddenly and I was hecka checka disoriented and I realized that I had my head at the bottom of the bed. Yes, once I realized where I was it was instantly okay because I had two grey fuzz balls to bury my face in for comfort, but for those few seconds it was quite unsettling. The real question is, how the "h" did I get down there? sure, it has happened before, but when you share a bed with someone else the whole picture changes.

My honest guess-I have been known to sleepwalk. I partially woke up and got out of bed and saw that the cats were at the bottom and wanted to pet and love them, so I got back in upside down...i do love my kitties. But waking up on the wrong side of the bed really does throw off your morning, I couldn't find my keys even though they were exactly where I normally put them and I can't seem to keep anything straight.

Best day EVER

Saturday morning my dear husband took me to the zoo. Now you must know that the Victoria Zoo sort of sucks in comparison to any other zoo in the world, until two weeks ago. Yes, on March 26 the zoo got two baby lions, only six weeks old from the San Antonio Zoo to replace the jaguars that died in the last year from old age. I obvioulsy wanted to go the next day but we had the reception in Edinburg, so it had to wait.

Oh my goodness, it was like a dream come true. They were snuggling in a corner for their afternoon nap, but when some other animals went baserk they came out to see what the comotion was. Julian wanted to move on to the alligators and baboons, but i really could have stayed there all day.

The rest of the day was great too. I love being married.

In the morning

Well, really in 34 hours, but technically it is only one day from the day that I tie the knot. It is 2:00 am and i can't sleep. Most definitely not cold feet, but the mental list was too much. I had to get up and write some things down in hopes that i could get back to sleep. well here i am a bowl of chocolate brownie icecream later. so, here are some of my thoughts...

*yesterday, I got to go to the temple with three of my aunts, my parents, my sweet julian and his parents. there is nothing quite like that. I have never seen my family look so beautiful and i can't wait until my youngest sister gets married and we can all be in the temple together. It is where we are suppose to be.

*I am so grateful for the support that my family and friends have given me. all of my aunts and uncles will be at the wedding and most of my dearest friends will be there. I couldn't ask for more.

*I am sick and i want to feel better...i think i am starting to, but i am pretty sure i will still have the scratchy man voice on saturday-nice! "oh, emilee. you look so pretty." "thanks (insert smokers cough)" yeah, really attractive.

*Julian's mom wants us to do the garter toss at the valley reception...still thinking about that one

Today is going to be fun, we are arranging the flowers, all my friends are coming in and we are going to party tonight...hopefully i can get some more sleep.
