Well, well, well... Once again time is slipping through my fingers! Tomorrow marks the one month anniversary of Jonathan and I being a Mr & Mrs. Wowza! I finally got around to changing my name with the social security office, so now according to the American government I am Meghan Lee Flint. I think I like the sound of that :).
Soon I should be getting my SS card in the mail, and as soon as that happens Jonathan and I can go get our passports! I just need to get mine updated, but Jonathan has never had one before so it is kind of exciting! Even if I don't use mine as much as I'd like to, the thought of a passport that opens the door to world travel is thrilling, don't you think? Besides, we will DEFINITELY be using our passports for our upcoming honeymoon! We have finally decide on going to Europe, and now we are just narrowing down all the places we want to go to. Paris is for sure, and so is Vienna. Everything else is up for grabs. I have heard wonderful things about the Cinque Terre in Italy, and I would love to go to Greece. I guess everything depends on how much time Jonathan can get off work. Anyone have any suggestions on where to go in Europe??? We are open for suggestions!
In other news... our wedding pictures are ready!!! Carl Zoch and his wife Cara were our photographers an they did an OUTSTANDING job. If you or anyone you know is in need of an Oklahoma photographer I highly recommend them! Here are just a few of my favorites...

AND see a fantabulous slideshow here:

those pictures just make me so happy. I can't stop looking at them. sigh...

I already have a spot reserved on our bedroom wall for the wedding photo shrine, right next to our engagement photo shrine (thanks Sarah Rhoads for that!)

So thats the mini life update! Jonathan's parents and sister are coming in a few weeks, and we have turned our attention to nesting :). We are tired of looking like college students, and we are working on classing up our little love nest. We have a few DIY projects on the roster, so I will for sure post some before and after shots! But until then...


PS: Everyone should watch the Season Premier of Mad Men tonight!!! Yipee!!!

well, we did it!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe that it is already the middle of July! Time has seriously flown by, and now I am a Mrs! I wonder when it stops being weird introducing myself as "Jonathan's wife," or "Meghan Flint." Hmmmm, not yet!
Anyways, our time in Oklahoma was wonderful. We got to stay for 2 weeks, and it went by so fast. I got there the Tuesday before the wedding, and it is all a blur now. Lots of last minute appointments, late nights making yarn pompoms, and planning flower arrangements. We did almost everything ourselves, and I am so glad we did. We did a lot of things in an untraditional manner, and I think we had to do it ourselves to do it right.
The wedding festivities started on Friday morning with the dress rehearsal. It went really well, except for the fact that I forgot to tell my Matron of Honor about it... oops, hehe. But she managed just fine at the wedding.
Later that night we had the Rehearsal Dinner. Jonathan's family, aka my in-laws, did such a wonderful job! It was at another historical mansion right down the street from the one we got married at, and the food was amazing! There was lots of booze, and food, and really lovely people. Bob, my father-in-law, had everyone come up with a 6 word statement before the dinner. The 6 word statements were supposed to be about love, or marriage, or Jonathan and I, or just some words of wisdom. After dinner we past a microphone around the room and everyone read their's aloud to us. It was awesome! Here are a few of my favs:
"The woman is always right. Always" - My Grandma
"Jonathan is awesome. Meghan is hot."- my new nephew, Price
"Scored a hot nurse, lucky girl"- Jonathan
"See, girls meet husbands in bars."- long time friend of mine, Julie
Anywho, here are some pics from the night:
Jonathan and my brother

Dad, mom, me and husband :)
me and my bridesmaids

bride and groom, isn't he cute?!

After the rehearsal dinner, we went out with the wedding party to hit da club... in Tulsa... it was hilarious. And then at about 8:00am the next morning, aka the wedding day, I realized that the tequila shots and cosmos weren't the best idea... But the show must go on! And it did. We all jumped into action and did what the warboard told us to do, and by the grace of God it all came together. I'll do a "before and after" post later, but for now I will just show you some pictures from the best day of my life:
Me walking down the aisle to "Somebody to Love" by Queen

us taking our vows. I LOVE how the arch turned out!

again with the vows... notice the pompoms :)

Jonathan kissed the bride, and I got red lipstick all over him, haha!


The reception... I loved getting to see all of my high school friends! Jenks Pom Squad '03 reunion!

and I think this photo sums up the whole night. We all got to let go and have fun, no more stress! I love my mom in this picture! Total surrender!

And that is about all the blogging I can handle for tonight. The benadryl I took for my poison ivy is kicking in... I will post more pictures as they come to me. Thanks for looking!!
