So for our honeymoon Beau and I decided to go to Disneyland. I love Disneyland! We used to go every other year when I was little and Beau has only been once but he doesn't remember it so we thought it would be perfect. We left the day after the Moab reception and drove straight through to California. The first night we stayed at a creepy motel six off the freeway in Anaheim but the rest of the week we stayed in the Ahaheim Hilton across the street from Disneyland. It was so nice! We got upgraded to the top floor because we were on our honeymoon so it was wonderful. It was so much fun to just be with Beau and be able to not have to worry about anything. I had a blast and so did he. We went to Disneyland for three days and then went to San Diego and got to go to the San Diego zoo and Sea World. It was seriously a BLAST!!!!!! Just being together wa sthe best part of the whole vacation. Not a worry in the world. Disneyland was all decorated for Halloween (my very favorite holiday). It was so beautiful. Here are a few pictures from our trip enjoy!!!

Reception Time!

Alright so I am catching up on the other couple of things that happened to us in October. We had a wonderful time at our reception complete with good food and a CLASSIC cake fight. It was PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!! I love my husband. He fights like I fight it was wonderful. Our cake was also beautiful. Everyone was worried about how a black cake would look but I got many compliments on the choice. We also got to dance with eachother to our song "chasing cars" and with our parents. Thank you everyone who participated in making our day so wonderful. We love you all!!

Infectious mononucleosis

Well our week has been quite interesting. All the first part of last week I was complaining about a really bad pain in my left tonsil. It hurt so bad! Wednesday night Beau took my temperature and it was 102. I was so tired and in pain. Thursday morning I woke up and both my tonsils were swollen and covered in white. Beau took me to the insta care and the first doctor I saw didn't even look in my throat, gave me a very expensive generic antibiotic, and sent me on my way. By Friday I was getting even worse. I couldn't swallow, my head hurt, it was hard to breathe, and my fever STILL hadn't gone down! What was wrong with me. So Saturday morning I put my foot down and we went back to the insta care for another visit. I was so miserable at this point. We got to see Doctor Brown this time. I sure do love him. He was so great. He did another throat culture and took five tubes of blood out of me. Turns out I have a viral throat infection and mononucleosis. I contracted the throat infection because my body was already infected with the mono and it just made me very suseptable to other diseases. So I am tired all the time and very contagious. Luckily this doctor gave me a steroid to help with my throat and an antibiotic to kill any other bacteria that may be swimming in my body. Here is the depressing part, I have to withdraw from school this semester. I will be missing too much school with the mono as it is and I don't want to infect the entire student body with whatever it is I may have AND I dont' want them infecting me! So here is a little blurb on Mono. I guess I have it pretty bad. Oh and don't worry Beau and I haven't been kissing so he doesn't have it. So now I have to go to sleep. I swear it is the weirdest thing, I fall asleep for five hours and then I am awake for two and then back asleep for five. I can't help it. Even in the middle of the night I wake up and then fall back asleep. I HATE IT!

Infectious mononucleosis, (also known as the kissing disease, or Pfeiffer's disease, in North America as mono and more commonly known as glandular fever in other English-speaking countries) is seen most commonly in adolescents and young adults, characterized in teenagers by fever, sore throat, muscle soreness, and fatigue. Around 90% of people will aquire the virus even if they exhibit no symptoms. Mononucleosis typically produces a very mild illness in small children, but is typically asymptomatic. Mononucleosis is usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which infects B cells (B-lymphocytes), producing a reactive lymphocytosis and atypical T cells (T-lymphocytes) known as Downey bodies.

Mononucleosis is typically transmitted from asymptomatic individuals through saliva (hence "the kissing disease"), or by sharing a drink, or sharing eating utensils. It may also be transmitted through blood. The disease is far less contagious than is commonly thought. Mono is not spread through the air. You can live in the same house with a person and never acquire the virus. In rare cases a person may have a high resistance to infection.[citation needed] The disease is so-named because the count of mononuclear leukocytes (white blood cells with a one-lobed nucleus) rises significantly. There are two main types of mononuclear leukocytes: monocytes and lymphocytes. They normally account for about 35% of all white blood cells. With infectious mononucleosis, this can rise to 50-70%. Also, the total white blood count may increase to 10,000-20,000 per cubic millimeter

I've been tagged!

Alright I have been tagged but there really aren't five interesting things about me....I will have to dig deep and think about this one.

1. I am in love with London! I lived in a flat in Central London for the summer and it was the best experience of my life and I can't wait to go back.

2. I don't eat fish..I think it is the grossest thing! I try it different ways as much as I can just to see because it is good for you but it's no use I hate fish! I do enjoy a good albacore tuna sandwich though.

3. I am allergic to Monosodium Glutamate better known as MSG. It is a dumb preservative that I don't understand why it's even in the food system but...oh well.

4. I am an avid scrapbooker and picture taker. I love it! I am always looking at fun new ideas when it comes to scrapbooking.

5. I love to read...especially Harry Potter....OH and Lord of the Rings are my favorite books and FAVORITE movies!!

6. I am addicted to my neices and nephews...I seriously can't get enough I love them all so so so so much! Whether it is playing pirates with Zane, tupperware with Connor and Logan, princesses with Maggie Moon, or Candy Land with Kylie I love every minute I get to spend with them. They are my favorite things in the world next to my Beau who I also can't get enough of :D :D :D
