Colin and I had SO MUCH fun on our marriage celebration cruise with 52 of our friends and family members!! Ok, let me back up... I didn't want to do a wedding. I haven't wanted to do a wedding in years because I think it's a waste of money, but also, I'd be the worst bridezilla EVERRRR. Seriously, I am so OCD that nothing could have gone perfectly enough for me (self-reflection - oh heyyyy). Colin decided that he was on board, so instead, we did a 3 night cruise (Royal Caribbean) to the Bahamas (Nassau & CocoCay) out of the port (Cape Canaveral, FL) near my hometown (Cocoa, FL).
It was a great decision. It was so fun watching our friends and family mingle and make friends among themselves. I can't suggest it enough even though I've never had a wedding, so I really can't compare. Seems better though.
Anyway, the cruise was awesome. Our friends even started a new group chat afterwards to chat among themselves (and give me major FOMO).
So thennnnn... 2 of our friends who couldn't make it on the cruise came to visit us and we went to Universal on Saturday (my Aunt Kelly is amazing and got us in for free / free lunch). They gave us Shrek buttons (see pictures) that say, "Just Married" AND they gave us some fast pass tickets because I sweet talked the guy at guest services :)
And now... we are exhausted. Happy, but exhausted. So, we are spending some time in FL with my parents just doing nothing. It's great! We'll continue to do stuff like this when we are traveling... a week on the beach in Brazil or something when we get tired.
