6 Years

Does anyone know when AF arrives once my HCG is negative? I have read some horror stories on the Internet and Dr. Google tells me it could be anywhere from one month to a year. A year? YOu have got to be kidding me. There is NO way that is accurate. I just can't believe that so please, set me straight.


Six years ago A. and I got married. It was the perfect fairytale wedding that I had always dreamed of. We didn't celebrate our anniversary on the day this year, but we are celebrating now! Here are some moments from my happiest memory. Enjoy! (The pictures are a bit fuzzy, but hopefully you'll get the idea.)

First, I have to start with my dress. It was a Monique Lhuillier and it was everything I had dreamed of. It was so beautiful and it made me feel like a princess.

Here we are under the chuppah for the wedding ceremony.

Once A. stepped on the glass, the guests screamed Mazel Tov and we were danced out of the room.

When we entered the room we ran through a tunnel held up by our bridal party. Everyone cheered and it truly was a magical moment.

We then immediately were joined on the dance floor by our guests to dance the hora. In a traditional Orthodox Jewish wedding, the bridal party 'entertains' the couple. This is why the bridesmaids danced around us with shopping bags (have I mentioned that I LOVE shopping) and the hat and t-shirt were camp shirts from where we met. We were even lifted on chairs...very scary for me, but A. loved it.

A. surprised me by singing to me, "How sweet it is to be loved by you" James Taylor. He was awesome.

At the end of the night, we were exhausted. We got in the limo and ate our dinner (the caterer made fresh food for us as we didn't eat all night) and then got to the hotel. We were almost to tired to..., but we found some energy. ;)

In six years, we have been through it all. Even though times have been tough, very very very tough lately, I love my life with A. and really hope that next year there will be one more in the family or at least one on the way. Tomorrow A. and I are going here for the weekend. It is exactly the type of getaway we need. I am so looking forward to relaxing, drinking and having fun. (Not sure what the internet situation is like so may not post until we get back on Sunday.)

  8. you guys are so good looking! and im so relieved...i hate having ugly friends! LOL JK

  9. Happy Anniversary to you! Your pictures are beautiful. And OMG, do I LOVE cupcakes. What a great looking "cupcake cake" you had there.

    I know the road has been tough and filled with a lot of potholes, but having such a strong soul to walk through that rough road with means so much.

    Hope your weekend is fantastic and there are more pics to share!

  10. I just found your blog through another I follow. I love your wedding pictures and how you and your hubs went back for a date where you first met.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I've had two D&Es and AF arrived about six weeks after each. Although I hated to do so, I followed to see when I Oed so that I had some clue when she was coming.

  11. Very nice pictures! Make me think about mine and how my husband loved being in the chair and I was kind of freaked since the stronger men must have held up my husband and I was crooked the entire time.

    Hope you have a great celebration!


  12. Happy Anniversary! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!

    Love the new look of your blog, too!

    As for how long AF comes, I don't remember how long it took after my ectopic, but I know it was not a YEAR!

  13. Great pics - you guys make a lovely couple! Your dress is gorgeous!
