I know I am slacking at blogging lately....but it's because I feel like there is nothing exciting to blog about.
Before, I could talk about the new decorations I bought, the cake I picked, or the final touches for the big day.
Now, we are just another married couple living blissfully in love.

Not that married life isn't exciting...because I am enjoying every minute of it.
I just don't know if you will enjoy our evenings of cooking pasta, watching America's Got Talent, playing board games, and falling asleep watching "Planet Earth" as exciting as I do.

Here are some of my favorite moments from these first couple weeks living together:

1.) Deciding who will clean what. I am the laundry girl and he is the dish washer. I hate nasty stuck on food and he hates folding. Done.
2.) Decorating our apartment. I actually have a husband who cares about decorating almost as much as I do so it's been fun picking out things and making a home together.
3.)Dinner parties. We happen to live close to our friends Lacy and Quaid, so we have taken turns cooking for each other and just hanging out. The problem is Lacy hates board games so we need some people to come over and play with us!
4.)Playing games. We LOVE games. Especially trivia and word games. The problem is....there are only so many games that are fun with just two people. We get our fill of scrabble, boggle, scene it, family fued, and Are you smarter than a 5th grader. So if you are up for a challenge (we are a tough couple to beat) we will take you on in an epic game night!
5.) Date nights. Just because you are married does not mean that dating is over. We make sure to get out a lot, even if it is just to the dollar movies to see something that came out 3 months ago or to share an ice cream at Braums.
6.) Louging around. I love just being with David. We don't have to be talking, or even in the same room. I just love having him near all the time. It's nice to just sit together and watch T.V. or watch him play video games.
7.) Skivies. For those of you who have ever lived with me, you know how much I love to walk around in my undies. Married life not only allows this, but encourages it. Fantastic.
8.) Shopping and Snacking. Grocery shopping is so much more fun when you are buying food together. We love picking out snacks to eat while we watch countless hours of netflix. My favorite snack of the moment is either Kettle Corn or Target's mango salsa. Yum.
9.) Netflix. For those of us poor newlyweds who refuse to pay more than $20 for cable, Netflix is heaven. Instant movies and T.V. shows, yes please.
10.) Quirks. After you have been with someone for 6 years you think that there isn't much left to learn about them. That is false. I am finding out more and more things about David than I ever have before.

Well I guess that's a little more exciting than I expected...

Dinner Party

We've finally got almost everything cleaned and settled into our apartment so what do we do?..
Throw a dinner party of course!

We invited our also newlywed friends Lacy and Quaid over for dinner and to hang out with us.

It was good motivation to finish getting everything cleaned and put away so they wouldn't judge us when they came over. Although I do think they judged us for all of our empty picture frames awaiting wedding photos...that's ok, at least they are off the floor and on the walls.

Also, we got to use all of our new kitchen stuff, including my new cake plate!

David is the chef in our house (I'm just the baker), so he made Montreal chicken, Pioneer Woman's mashed potatoes (thanks for the cook book Westin!), corn, and biscuits! I contributed to the dinner by making dessert....cake mix cookies! They are seriously the best! You will never eat a regular cookie dough cookie again after you've had these.

Overall, it was fantastic and we all had a great time!

I can check that off my married to-do list.

Here are some pictures of our setup.

And I just decided to take a picture of our bedroom because it was actually clean!
