St John Pictures

Here is a start..I hope to get a video up soon if i can figure it out. Rich has been putting together a fantastic slideshow. Everytime i watch it i get relaxed and also laugh so hard i nearly wet my pants. He took a video on his Iphone and I, of course, made some funny editorial comments.
( You know, it is good to THINK your own jokes are funny)

Maine Lobster is still good, but this is easier to eat. No claws. Weird. Those little guys must have some other self defense mechanism or maybe in the Carribean they dont need it.
Dress compliments of KO. Too bad I spilled all over it and now it's mine.
Kidding. Thanks KATE!!!

The Donkey's arent buying what I have to say "Come here little pretty.."

My friend Molly gave me this suit. Thanks Molly!
Rich sporting his Kiwami tri suit.
Perfect for snorkling.
And yes...perhaps Jen has a new client? hmm...I think he is bored watching me. Why not just do one himself? Yes yes yes!!!

Before I get to the St John coverage.....

Mr. And Mrs. Weisbecker
P.S our wedding night we didnt get much food. So i ordered a pizza.
"we would like a BBQ chicken pizza for pick"
Ooops. Rich laughed then made me sign the tabs on the honeymoon so i could practice my new name.
Cupcake Tree, courtesy of my fabulous sister in law..locals....she is too good to be true.
I have her contact on my FB page!
The First Light ( Rich's TT team) family. Those are KYLE's hands on my shoulder, this guy is 6 foot 8. Great person to ride with ( behind).

And soon i will write about adventures like this:
We were swimming, actually Rich was snorkleing and i was just swimming. We saw this sailboat and i saw the bike. We were pretty deep so I popped out ( easy to do in salt water) and Rich snapped me with the Cannondale in the background. And you can see the ship's owner hanging out in the water too!

Dum Dum De Dum: Where we have been, Where we are going

First a few photos: Where we have been..

KO thank you.
This is the bruising you get when they give you 2x day heparin shots for more than 2 weeks. Man he is still sore from those. The only good news about the bed rest was his clavicle healed. Hee, little joys!

Ok that "dum dum de dum" was my "sing along" to Mendehlson's Wedding March. Which by the way I am not using.

This is my dress. And my head piece.

Ok it isnt really, but how fun would that have been? Even tho it looks like an asymmetric curtain and a pigeon on her head. Only in New York, I am guessing.
Ok I have been watching too much Arrested Development, pigeons, magicians, and Gob, pronounced JOBE...ok ok either you get it or you dont.

Damie you didnt miss it:)
Tonight starts the festitivities as my parents have a family "grownup" party and some family is shipping in today.

Friday brings a pool swim, some coffee time for the ladies and the rehearsal. haha I need that. I already thought that the bridesmaids came in after me. Oops.

We are combining a 50th party for my parents with a Groom's dinner on friday.
Then saturday, a run or maybe a bike, then there is some makeup and hair where i have been promised i wont look like Tammy Faye.

I love this phone conversation with the hair person:
Me: "So do you want me to arrive with clean hair, wet hair...??"
Hair person: " Well what do you normally do with your hair in the morning."
Me: Blank space, dead phone..." Brush it?"
Hair person: sensing my confusion..." So you put in the PRODUCT and then....???."
Me: " I dont usually use product...."
Hair person: " So you just blow dry it and....." she is trying so hard to help me...I can sense her pain.
Me: " Nope never blow dry how about if i just come in with hair that isnt squeeky clean?"
Hair person, thinking "HELP HER..." YES THAT IS FINE.

Maybe i do need a dead pigeon in my hair
But then the Goal Event ( A RACE) is at 4:30. Reception will be a bit different than we had planned but still super fun. No worries.

We leave for the honeymoon monday!
Once again i cant say enough thanks to all my friends, family, those i dont even know who prayed for us or sent vibes in whatever spiritual or non spiritual manner suits you.
Today at a work meeting a scripture was used to describe Pace: The Gift to Run Your Race.
It was our all staff meeting and an author named Larry Julian spoke. He has three fantastic books out: GOD IS MY CEO, GOD IS MY SUCCESS, and GOD IS MY COACH ( along with Jen)
I really think that you all ( in addition to Beth!) will enjoy these books!

"Let us throw off everything that hinders...,and let us run with perseverence the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1

Now when we define perseverence-moving forward despite obstacles and disturbances- we get new insight into these words and how they apply to us. Whether you apply this to a Triathlon ( winds, cold, you feel like crap, you are slow, you have PMS) or you apply this to life ( your fiance is diagnosed with cancer, you have a sick child, you have an injury, you lost all your $ in your 401k)

We have all perservered and now it is time to rejoice and celebrate!

I promised Rich no blog or FB on the honeymoon so ..signing off for a few weeks!

This is for Michelle. You cant read my lips but i am saying HTFU:) You cant see it but MY OCEAN ...The Mighthy calm and lovely to my left. Marit would be out there rowing. I know my sister was!

Ruby says hi. She is sporting the ribbon from a Williams Sonoma gift box and actually seems quite pleased with it!
