Last weekend Chris and I got married! (Yes, I decided to take the Texas State Bar and get Married in the same year because I’m an overachiever, and a little crazy.) Our wedding day was a whirl wind, full of sunshine, rain, and Kevin Allison. Some of you may recognize the name of the man who runs the podcast Risk! as well as live shows of the same and a storytelling company in New York City. Kevin Allison was our officiant! He did an awesome job and if you haven’t listened to his podcast yet, you must! It is amazing, where people tell true stories they never thought they’d share.
I’m also extremely thankful for my photographer, who capture some brilliant moments as the day is a complete blur in my memory. Kathleen Gray is a family friend who started Eternal Fotography last year. She and her family are moving to the North Dallas area later this year. Kathleen also shoots such sessions as newborn portraits, Mother’s and Father’s Day portraits, and headshots. Kathleen was a great calming portion of a chaotic day and I want to give her a shout out and send some traffic to her blog. Below is my favorite picture from the day and you can click on it to see more pictures from our wedding including my bridal cake with a TARDIS topping and the wedding attendants posing with paper mustaches and top hats or you can click on Chris and Jami’s Beautiful Backyard Wedding.
If you head over to Eternal Fotography to look at the pictures please leave a comment. Ten comments earns me a little prize (an 8X10 printed photo). Furthermore, I would love to give back to Kathleen and Eternal Fotography for their wonderful addition to our special day.

And a couch, a very very BLUE couch. Unfortunately (or not) it is all Photoshop, but still, kind of interesting.
Let It Go – The Doctor Who Version by Arthur Darvill: http://youtu.be/TNDyBBAjRHg
I’m sick today and babysitting my niece. Que telly time. Usually, I’m a good aunt, parks and craft time and playing getting trussed up in jail. Which is loads of fun and loads of energy. I don’t have loads of energy today.
Also, I’m tired of Milan, Treasure Planet, and Rise of the Guardians.
So, I put on Doctor Who.
Que questions and comments. My favorite by far was when Micky gets his hands caught by the plastic trashcan. She goes, “Don’t swallow him!” It took everything I have not to laugh out loud when it did and she turned to me with her shocked face.
Most fun sick day ever.
Probably most of you have already seen this popping up around the internets or on your Facebook wall, like I did. But I still have to share, because it is glorious.
OK. I know I’ve done a lot of – OH MY GOD I FOUND THIS ON PINTEREST. But, honestly, the most I have time for anymore is flipping through pages of Pinterest. I’ll even admit I have a secret Wedding board. UGH! I’m one of those girls. But, I assure you it is necessary for sanity.
I left my home, my friends, and my routine for hope. For love. And while I’m believing good things will happen and have my sisters and a roof over my head, my routine is all shot to hell and back again. For someone with an anxiety disorder, that is extremely disruptive and I fight bouts of depression throughout the days. Pinterest can pull me back from dark thoughts because it brings me belief that I can eventually be in a better place to make the things I want to make, it gives me laughter when I find something silly, and it’s a small slice of my routine I am able to keep.
All that to say. I found some cool Doctor Who things on Pinterest. Like these TARDIS flip flops. GAH! I want! My own TARDIS is stuffed out in my sister’s garage, I had to cut it in half just to get it here, and all my pictures and reminders of how to smile again are locked up in a plastic prison. To make up for that, I think my sisters are going to need to through me a Doctor Who birthday party and make one of these TARDIS pinatas, because, well, because they owe me.
TARDEx for all your shipping needs you didn’t know you had yesterday. Seriously, this should exist! ;)
Hot Topic must have a license to sell, because they have a lot of Doctor Who stuff. Like this Sleeper Set for women. It actually does look comfortable.
My niece has an ice tray with star shapes, don’t I deserve this TARDIS and Dalek mold to make my own geeky ice?
I like how these people added touches of Doctor Who to their wedding. It’s a little subtle with the Rose and blue references (especially as the blue isn’t TARDIS blue), but it’s a cute idea. The huge entrance TARDIS is a nice touch.
