We have been married 6 months and 12 hours and 27 minutes!!!
Which of course is a cause for celebration. (We basically celebrate anything we can if you haven’t noticed.)
Celebrating for us always involves food.
First, we slept in until 10:30. We took a luxurious hot bubble bath, followed by strawberries and pancakes! They were so yummy. Our breakfast dessert was sprinkle cupcakes that we had made together the night before.
After that, we went to church where Matt made his usual heretical comments (his words not mine) and I got to see my friends and reassured people that we really are nice people.
When we came home we armed ourselves with aprons, recipes, and knives. We made thai green curry soup (which is amazing, hopefully Michele puts it up soon,) and cheesy pull apart bread. Then we succumbed to vice and played poker. Once we had eaten all the chips, we weren’t left with much besides the clothes on our backs, but we kept on going! Gambling is such a destructive addiction.
Finally, Matt got wasted while reading aloud Winnie the Pooh!
As you can tell marriage has been a wonderful experience for us. Really, it has.
A few things we like about our first 6 months together…
1. Our whole honeymoon
2. Taking classes together
3. Cooking and grocery shopping together
4. Fixing up our home
5. Eating out (especially Outback and Macaroni Grill)
6. Shopping in
together during Thanksgiving break Salt Lake
7. Matt surprising me with an early birthday present
8. Laughing so hard it hurts over stupid things
books together Reading
10. Listening to and singing music together
11. Finding out just how weird each other are and then realizing how perfect we are for each other
I can’t wait to see what the next six months are going to bring us, but I’m sure it will be exciting.
