Tomorrow will mark 3 weeks since I married my prince charming, and I have to admit that life has been treating us pretty royally. We have so many big things coming up in May, our at home reception (where we hope to see everyone), Stephen starts STE school and I am so proud of him, I'm done with my last spring semester as a student, and a few other big things that I'll blog about throughout the month.

We're back... and we're MARRIED!

We are officially Mr. and Mrs. Hunley! After 24 years of being Brandi M. I am now Brandi H. Woo Hoo. It's a little weird, well only when I go to write my name, I mean it's hard to break a 24 year habit. I do love saying that I am Mrs. Brandi Hunley. I <3 it! I swoon over it, I doodle it like a school girl!

Our trip to Cancun was a week of pure heaven, and truly the best week of our lives. We had so much fun, and were surrounded by so much love that it's truly heaven sent. Our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and I think everyone came to make new friends too. There was dancing, foam parties, snorkling, drink spills, trips down the water slide fully clothed, spinnaker craziness, two very special birthdays, fire dancers, and of course the amazing ocean.

I feel so blessed to have become the wife of such an amazing man, and to have the world's most amazing support group. I cant wait to see the great things that life in store for us.

Here are some pictures of our trip <3

Bon Voyage el capitain

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.  ~Seneca

Today marks 7 days from me becoming Mrs. Stephen Michael Hunley, new initials B.A.H. Just call me lamb chop. We had our Bon Voyage Party today and it was so much fun! We had all of our friends and family that will be in Mexico with us, plus a few extra fun friends thrown in. I did my very best to make this party as beautifully decorated as possibly, I"m working really hard towards building a portfolio for becoming an event planner. Today I actually put forth some effort to make it look like a real event. My fabulous sweetcheeks (Soon to be) hubby woke up at 730am and went to Restaurant Depot, Norfolk Wholesale Floral, Costco, Party City, and the liquor store with me. He was such a trooper. Here are some pictures of the party:
