march was a blur

March was a blur, or maybe I should just say that March was a snow storm, because let's be honest that is a little more accurate. We had days upon days that we were kept inside, which was nice, especially since we are newlyweds and love spending so much time together cuddling, watching movies and sipping hot chocolate. It was a little bit of a stressful month though because I didn't have a lot of school. I hardly had any school actually. We basically had a second winter break, and on top of that I couldn't go to work most of those days either. It was insane! On the days that we were able to get out, Haig luckily got to work and I was able to get home to relax and spend some more time job hunting!

Good-bye for now March, we are glad you are over.

1st Month

This weekend will mark our one month anniversary of being married! It has been a really fun month. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Haig and I did not live together before we were married. So it has been a lot of fun to finally live with my best friend. He has been a great roommate. We have both been working hard and I am finishing up my last semester of school, so it has been wonderful to come home to each other at the end of a long day.

One of my favorite things about living with Haig is learning more about being a good wife. I notice I am doing so many things lately that I didn’t do as often when I was living at home. I like to cook for Haig and bake for him too.  I have had a meal plan almost every night since I have moved in. We usually go grocery shopping together, but sometimes I will pick things up by myself. We are definitely a team when it comes to chores and cleaning. We are both pretty clean and tidy, and I am very organized so our apartment usually looks great.

We like to go to church together and see our friends and family. We really like to watch movies and we have been finishing up The Office series [we are currently on season 8, we miss Michael Scott but it is still a pretty good show].

Although I hate talking about it, I am pretty sure I might jinx it, but we are sick of the snow. There is way too much of it now. We long for a summer together. It’s been a long time since we’ve had beach days, picnics and star gazing nights. We are excited for spring because there are some great things in store like my graduation, our wedding reception and our birthdays, but the summer months are what we really want.

One more thing that I have noticed the past few weeks, is that we stick together. Haig always does his best to make sure I am doing okay, and I do my best to help him whenever he needs me. We have already had a couple hard days and stumbling blocks arise in this new part of our adult life, but we work through things together. Our love is so great because we are each other’s best friends and we will literally be best friends forever.

hi, I'm married and we don't have internet

Our little married life has started and we love it. The first couple of weeks have been going great. We wish we could just stay in bed all day most mornings, but I am so happy we have both been working hard for each other at school and work. When we come home in the evenings, we have a lovely time making dinner together, cuddle, watch the office, and all that other stuff that married couples do..

Right now, I am at home because we don't have the internet at the apartment which makes it hard to get some things done for school and job hunting. We looked into getting the internet hooked up at our apartment and we got a pretty good deal on it, until we had to buy a modem and router and the initial set up fees and installations. I can't exactly remember what else came up that day, but of course there was something big that we had to pay for. So after some thinking and talking, we decided that now wouldn't be a great time for us to add another bill to our list.

I've got a couple funny reactions so far, people are just really surprised about not having the internet. Yeah, it's not great but we will manage and it really is not the most important thing for us right now. Then for now, I will enjoy coming to my "house" to spend time with our kitten and eat my family's food ;)
