Stuff to look forward to!

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes." He addressed the man, "Can you name your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's Pillsbury, isn't it?

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. "The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

Wedding week

I'm married. Wow, I have a husband, and I am married... What a comforting feeling, what a relief. Relationships constantly make you desire more...first date you want a second one, first kiss you want more, after anniversaries you want a ring or committment, after ring you "want" to plan....when you finally marry, it's chill time. No more needs or desires, just enjoy!
I had the most amazing wedding week. From a fun rehearsal dinner, to rad hangout session afterwards with was great to see everyone getting along and having fun.
The wedding was flawless, I feel I really got to appreciate the ceremony, and seeing my man at the end of the aisle was like a dream. The reception was exactly what I wanted. Good food, dancing, laughter, smiles, great music, and awesome to see all our friends and family together in one room.
The honeymoon was spent with my best friend. We turned a resort-honeymoon into a photo session in the heart of the city, and adventures in the rainforest. Really good food, nice people, and just about the perfect timing of everything.
Here are some links if anyone wants to see pics of the week's events:

**Please remember to upload pics on the Temp&Kellie wedding page, everyone! We want to print them!

This weekend

Considering this weekend started out as extremely stressful (Praxis II exam at 7:30am Saturday, bad day at work, and final dress fitting) I had a great weekend. Saturday night got to hang out, outside at Stockley Gardens with good friends. Lots of laughter, debate, and animal lovin'. I was stoked to meet Kristin's new kitten Elliott (as seen in picture), and her dog Toby. Got to discuss "what makes someone an artist" to politics. I was super stoked on the evening. Then today, after going to our weekly trip to Yorgo's Bagels, we spent more quality time at Stockley Gardens lawn. (Where I got a pretty harsh sunburn 7 days before my wedding day, but THAT'S OK!) Frisbee tossing, wedding talk, and a Sunkist slurpee to top it off. Going home to play some lighthearted James Bond, and watch the Constant Gardener. Thanks to everyone for a carefree, fun weekend.
I can't wait for next weekend!

Fun tips I wanted to share

So in the past couple of weeks, I feel I have accumulated enough fun stuff to share with everyone from saving money to losing weight, here ya go:

-if you have an ipod, sell your cd's on ebay, especially on the special cheap listing days. I sold 1 cd for $10--used!

-if you are sick of paying lots of money for ink cartridges for your printer, I average around $55 for mine. Go to Rapid Refill Ink (there is one on Colley) bring in your old cartridge, and they will give you recycled cartridges for almost half the price.

I think that's it for now, I feel like I had more. I will add when I think of them!

-those commericials for Special K with red berries, says you lose weight, inches, works! I lost 3 pounds in 4 days, just having 1 bowl every morning.

-if you are dieting and crave desserts, sugar free jello is a great choice. I swear it tastes just the same.

So I have had this on-going debate on how to change my name when I get married. I need YOUR help. Let me know which sounds better, and why, and maybe that can give me some guidance.

Kellette Anne Elliott-keeping middle name, I think it sounds better, flows better. I am used to writing Kellette A. O'Connor, so easy transition to Kellette A. Elliott, or Kellie A. Elliott. I am proud of my last name O'Connor, and that would kind of make me sad.

Kellette O'Connor Elliott-dropping middle name. Temp likes the sounds of that better. If people try to find me from my past, O'Connor will help that. I think Kellette O. Elliott is funny sounding and looking though. If I go by by Kellie, Kellie O. Elliott. Sounds weird.
