So we stayed in South Dakota, right? I know, I know, you're thinking "eugh, south dakota? like the least romantic place in the galaxy?" and to that i say "no, it was pretty and secluded and all I wanted to do anyway was cuddle with my new husband, so it was perfect."
We left Mankato at about 9 am on Sunday morn after the wedding and stopped at his parents house for pictures his dad took, frozen peppers that he bought who knows how long ago (like 2 years?), and some of his old stuff from their attic. Then we finally hit the road for SD. drive drive drive. Then we check into the hotel, grab some hot chocolate and check out our hotel room.
Over the course of our honeymoon, we cuddle a lot (like i wanted), watch Jurassic Park and baseball, visit Mount Rushmore,

There's a story about that. So we go to Rapid City, park a couple blocks away, and walk there through a graffiti'd alleyway with a couple sleeping bums, and then get there and the special is prime rib. awww, yeah. We both order the same exact thing (the special, obvs) with a baked potato and a lemonade and hot chocolate. Then we eat, normal, and get the check. It's a substantial amount wrong (over). So we wait and wait for the waitress to come around and pick up our check so we can have her fix it and it's taking forever. There's a couple of couples a short distance away from us and one of the ladies there is super picky about her food. So anyway, the waitress comes up the stairs with their order and at the very top, she trips and all their food goes tumbling. Sean looks at me and says "Should we just pay the check?" and so we did with some cash from our wedding. Then we leave and walk toward our car aaand Sean has us walk 2 accidental blocks past our car. greaaat. it's cold. anyway, it was great. then we went back and cuddled so it's okay.
Then we left on tuesday morning and get home tuesday night and relax.
It was really great. I only wish it was longer.
And that's all. Love, Ellen
