And I'm spent

It has come to pass. I am now happily married to my lovely bride. I now have in-laws and will start splitting up holidays and the like.

It's Fall Break in Clemson, so campus is dead. It's nice.

I will most likely post this weekend's events in reverse chronological order because that's how I remember them for some reason.

My favorite parts of the weekend:
The ceremony (J looked incredible! The hair, the dress, the make-up, I couldn't take my eyes off of her)
The brunch reception (waffles with passion fruit butter and pineapples, I want some more!)
Family and friends (all my worlds colliding, high school friends, college friends, grad school friends, aunts, uncles, grandparents and not one fight!)
The rental car (definitely an unnecessary splurge but lots of fun)

I'll only cover one right now, and I pick the car. It wasn't my most favorite, but I liked it alot.

We rented a Cadillac CTS. Awesome brakes, great V8 power, XM radio (I'm hooked and can't wait until I have it), lots of buttons and controls on the steering wheel, the auto-stick that would actually hang on to a gear and even engine brake! Ouch, just looked at Cadi's website and those start at 30k. So I guess if I wanted a touring car and was 40-50ish, I would probably get one of those over a BMW or a Mercedes.

I didn't take one picture this weekend, but others did and we'll have our official pictures in about 2 weeks. More tales tomorrow!

Edit: I was just looking around. According to my butt dyno, the CTS had the 3.6L V6 rated at 255 hp. Not too shabby. But that does mean I still haven't driven a V8.
