Thought of the day

Time flies when you're having fun being married. The hubby and I have now been married for 1 month! We've been having so much fun planning dinner menus, planting flowers, entertaining friends and settling into our new home. A sincere apology to our parents for not calling more...we promise to call every day...err....every other day once we settle down.

But seriously, I can't believe how much love, joy and happiness we've already packed into one month, and I look forward to many more months of having fun and enjoying life with my best friend.

Just one more

Because, who doesn't where a little black dress with a big red poppy and drink champagne while feeding chickens?

New Obsession

I like dramatic and over the top, so of course, I love these handmade flowers by Emersonmade!

Oh Joy!

So, last week was rough and I was missing wedding planning. But, this weekend truly opened my heart to the joys of marriage. It was mine and the hubby's first weekend home with nothing to do, but enjoy one another's company, and it was FABULOUS!

I got up early on Saturday morning, ran two miles while it sprinkled raindrops on me (very refreshing in the 90 degree weather at 9 a.m.!), watered the flowers and had a friendly frog hop across my foot, ate breakfast and drank coffee with the hubby, baked a cake with a good friend using my new Kitchen Aid and food processor and celebrated our friends' engagement.

Sunday was equally as awesome! I woke up for a run, watered the flowers and had a good convo with the grasshopper who lives in my flower box, Blake made an awesome jalapeno and turkey sausage egg omelet with green salsa, went over to a friend's apartment for an afternoon of swimming, shopped for video games and work clothes with hubby and finished the evening with grilling burgers and drinking wine with the hubs.

I am officially over wedding planning and now floating in marital bliss. Summer Lovin'....havin' me a blast.

Confessions of a Newlywed

Despite all my ranting and raving about how I am not a planner and wedding planning is not my thing...I miss it. Who am I? I think I have come down with a bad case of PWDB...the Post-Wedding Day Blues.

I hate it, but its true what they say about your wedding day being a blur and that the day goes fast. Dang they! And dang nostalgia! After the AMAZING wedding, I had the honeymoon to look forward to. After the AMAZING honeymoon, I had the professional photos and moving into the new digs to look forward to. And after I received the AMAZING photos and somewhat settled into the AMAZING, new home with my Hubby (who I finally get to wake up to every morning and fall asleep to every evening), I felt sad. Sometimes, I look at the photos, and I can't believe it all happened. I'm married. To the most AMAZING, sweet, kind, loving (I could go on) guy I know. How did that happen? And now what?

I know the answer, life. But if I know the answer, the logic and the reason of it all, then why am I still bummed? And should I be this bummed so soon?

As my fabulous Hubby gets busy with school, I find myself needing to immerse into something productive. Yard work and cleaning has been the answer lately, but its 106 degree heat index today, and a girl can only do so much mulching before she passes out. I've been thinking about volunteer work, working out (although I don't have to fit into a dress anymore...whaaa!), church, making new friends (currently the majority of my friends in my new city are busy med school students)...Another confession...I talked to a little, green grasshopper today while I was watering flowers...I definitely need more friends...And even now, I'm smiling about how cute and friendly that grasshopper was...get a hold of yourself, for good God, woman.

I guess these things are considered life. And other women have gone on before me and lived their lives after their wedding day...

But, before I go gung-ho on moving forward, do I get a grace period?

I'm a Mrs.!

The Hubby and I tied the knot on May 30th, and it has been agreed upon between the two us that it was the best day of our far. The adventure has just begun.
