The New Girl

Thursday, May 04, 2006

Let my disclaimer be this: I haven't updated yet because I didn't want to come empty-handed, i.e., no pictures. And I really didn't know how to put them on the blog. So there you have it.

I hope this works.

Married...check. Honeymoon...check. New drivers license...check. New JOB...check. All new; new, new, new. I'm new to marriage, new to my job, and have a new name. For those curious, my new job is the Marketing and Donor Relations Coordinator at Lifeblood, our region's primary blood donation organization. And what's awesome about starting a job the week after your honeymoon is that no one there will ever have to adjust to my new name.

So our honeymoon was perfectly blissful, minus some stomach problems, but let's be honest, stomach problems really help break the ice of bathroom habits. We really just hung out, read our books, and watched the entire 2nd season of Lost off of iTunes hooked up to our TV. It was wonderful.

Coming back to Memphis and being married has been more than fun too. For example, Jonathan really does turn his alarm clock off and then immediately get up--he wasn't kidding me before. I'm not sure if he's trying to impress me with his almost automatic wake-up routine or what, but he isn't a dawdler in the waking up process like I am, and I'm sure many of you are.

I'm not really sure what else to write; we're still processing everything, I think. I don't have any wedding pictures on either of our computers, but they should be u


  1. Completely perfect. This is the post your public was waiting for.

    The honeymoon pics = success, btw. I see them crystal clear!

  2. It looks and sounds wonderful. Man, I need a vacation in Mexico.

    ok, so in my search to find your wedding announcement online I stumbled upon this gem of a page. :) Now I have all of your wit and beauty at my fingertips, so you can distract me all day at work. AND it's a fun way to say hi to all you wonderful Memphis gals (Jesse, Brooke, Kelly--HI!!)

    I love you Mrs. Leslie Jerkins!

  4. You know this Leslie Jerkins is is kind of a nazi about blogging, I think that I like Leslie Guinn better. Totally just kidding! Really the whole wedding was so wonderful. You looked so beautiful and it was such an honor to be apart of it. Also, I want to give a shout out to Erin. Hello Erin!! I enjoyed getting to know you!!
