Brandon and I finally got to send out a holiday card together! We wanted to take the perfect picture and after a lot of different poses we finally got it! We hope all our family and friends got some holiday cheer from it!
Brandon and I got our very first Christmas tree yesterday! We went around to every place that has Christmas trees to try and find the best deal. The whole time Brandon kept picking out huge trees saying, "go big or go home!" I thought we just needed a nice small tree to get us through the holiday season. In the end, I let Brandon pick out the tree. We got one that was all wrapped up and then we brought it home, cut the strings, and realized that we got a monstrous tree! It takes up half our living room! But we love it! It makes us laugh every time we look at it.
Brandon and I were so excited to celebrate our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. We had a great time with our family and friends. My mom cooked the most delicious meal! We can't wait until Christmas!
I haven't written on the blog in awhile because Brandon and I have been so busy starting our new life and decorating the apartment. We have finally put all the wedding stuff behind us and are now experiencing what being married really means. So far, we LOVE being married! We love living together and coming home to each other every night. We both cook, clean, and do laundry. We put in a joint effort for everything. I will put up pictures of the apartment soon!
Brandon and I had an amazing honeymoon! With an ocean view suite we relaxed and saw some amazing sights. We spent some time with my grandparents at their beautiful home. We also got to spend some time with my aunt, uncle, and cousin. My uncle Kevin taught Brandon how to surf and he caught a few waves his very first time out! We ventured across the ocean to see the Arizona Memorial. We even took a 4 mile bike ride up and down the north shore with my uncle as our guide. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon and it was all because of my amazing grandfather!
We have our wedding video up and running! Just click on "View my Profile" under the about me section of our blog and follow the link at the bottom of the page. Or... follow this link: http://lykinswedding.blogspot.com/
