Surviving Seattle - Day One

     So, as you probably all know by now, we just got married!  {Yay us!} 
We're a pretty stinking awesome couple, so we thought we'd share our adventures in a pretty stinking awesome way; hence this blog - Beauty and the Geek.
     Since you're either bored enough (or insane enough) to be reading these musings of an eccentric couple, I guess we will go ahead and ramble on about the first official day, collectively, as The Pearon's. Read on...if you dare...

*****Fair Warning - The jet lag might or might not have effected our writing skills, so bear with us. Hopefully, the content will have improved by week's end.*****

9:47 - What is this? A mirage? A smoke and mirrors trick!?  Nope...they have food.  :)
9:48 - Start looking for desirable food...
9:55 - Val is ready...Matthew is still looking...

Goodnight, Seattle...
