And then there were 6.....

I lost my first follower today! It is sort of sad when you only had 7 to begin with but I think I am going to get past it! It just baffles me that there could be someone who wouldn't want to follow this incredibly interesting, hilarious, well written, work of art! Just teasing. I am hoping that most new bloggers go through what I am going through in that they want to check their blogs all day long to see if there have been any hits on their page or comments left on their posts. I am definitely still in the "honeymoon" phase!

Speaking of honeymoons, I don't think that I have mentioned where Deaner and I are going on our honeymoon. We will be leaving Atlanta on the Monday after our wedding (I have a feeling we will be suffering from exhaustion after this party) and we are heading to Costa Rica for 8 days. I cannot wait. It has hardly been a harsh winter by any standard but I will be ready for some beach weather! It may have been 70 degrees today in Atlanta but you wouldn't have found any sunbathers anywhere in the city. Deaner and I don't tend to have the same taste is vacation destinations, which could have been a problem on our honeymoon, but I think that Costa Rica will satisfy both of our wants. Deaner wants the mountains and I want the beach with a book. I could stay put for hours just sitting on a beach reading in the sun. Not him. His mother must have let him fry in the sun when he was a kid because he is seriously anal about getting sunburned. In the 3 years that I have known him he has never been sunburned once but this is probably because he applies sunscreen every 30 minutes. He is that guy with a white face due to too many layers applied in a short amount of time. He would probably wear ZINC on his nose if I let him! :) Since we did his trip this summer, hiking in the southern Alps, I put my foot down about going to the beach. So, we will be spending the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in Arenal, the area at the foot of a volcano, at this hotel. We have the honeymoon villa here and we plan on hiking (well, I haven't agreed to this yet), taking the zip line canopy tour, and maybe white water rafting. Relaxing huh? From Arenal, we are heading to Tamarindo for the next 5 nights and staying at this hotel. This will be MY part of the vacation! I plan on taking several books and planting myself on the beach. The most active thing I plan on doing while here is taking a day of surf school. We have the honeymoon bungalow at this hotel too and I am really looking forward to it. I'm hopeful that we can keep Deaner's sunburn under control! :)

On a similar note, our wedding invitations went out yesterday and my phone has been ringing off the hook tonight with people telling me that they already received it! I am excited to start getting RSVP's but I am wondering if my mother's nerves can take it! Only 60 more days until the big day! I just said that out loud to Deaner and he sucked in his breath, made a shocked looking face, and then made a farting noise with his mouth. I think that is his way of telling me that he can't wait for me to be his wife!

So exciting! Costa Rica sounds phenomenal - coming off winter, I'm sure it will be the perfect getaway!

And yes, you will be absolutely exhausted for the first few days. The Monday after our wedding, I took three naps. THREE. The hubby swears I only woke up to eat. :)

You are engaged and moving overseas! Congratulations! 2009 is going to be an exciting year for you. It has been so long since I have gotten an update.

Best wishes, and I am super jealous of a trip to Costa Rica. How much fun!

I don't think you lost a follower. When I look it still says 7. Anyway, when I read that I started laughing b/c we spent all day talking about getting followers and comments on our blogs!

I ALWAYS wonder about it when I lose a follower. I mean, did I tick them off or something? Or did they just follow me to enter a contest? It's like being popular in high school. So fickle! :)

Maybe she just decided she hated my blog! :) It is definitely like being in high school! It sort of makes me laugh. Oh well! Hopefully there will be more followers to come and I will forget all about it! I really being able to say "please be my follower!" Like I am seducing people into some sort of cult!

Readers are sometime actually better than followers. For instance, I read all the blogs I "follow" on Google Reader, so I don't go to their actual site each time. Then they don't get as many "hits" as they should.

I would love to see a link to my post on your blog. How fun :)

You commented on inlaws. Yes, I liked them enough when we first got married. I didn't really know them and we moved to Colorado and were there for 6 years. That was easier. I just am having to learn to put up boundaries. Moving to Germany should be cool. Helps you to develop and enrich your marriage.
What part of Atlanta are you in? We are moving there!
