Last Sunday was my one-year wedding anniversary.  As a result, I didn’t really have a chance to post a Sunday Funday last week. I also wanted to post some wedding pictures, but then Christmas got in the way.  Anywho, enjoy this week’s Sunday Funday!

Sunday Funday 01 I 12.08.13

I’m back!  Sorry again for being MIA.  It’s been a rough, emotional week, but ultimately, the week culminated in a celebration of my grandmother’s life and a much needed weekend off to recover from the cold from hell and to hang out with friends.  Thanks for bearing with me!  Today I am going to start a weekly “Sunday Funday” post in which I will recap what I have enjoyed on the interwebs from the previous week.  Behold:
