Almost One year ago...I married my best friend!

Almost one year of marriage! WHAT? I can't believe it. Can you?!

It feels like just yesterday when I was planning a storm and having panic attacks. Wait. No. It still feels like I got engaged just yesterday! I guess that is a good thing because I am the happiest I've ever been still. I am truly blessed. I love being married to my best friend.

Sure, we've been together for 10 years. But let me tell you....I sure have learned A LOT about Ronnie and myself over the past year. Here are a few things I've learned about being "newlyweds".....

1. 2x the income is great! Sure, it took us over a year to manage 2 incomes, since I recently found my permanent teaching position. But I've learned to appreciate it. Having only one income sucks. Period.
2. Marriage can be both the easiest and hardest thing to ever go through. I'll hold nothing back - sometimes I can't stand him!! (Especially with Election 08' and only having ONE TV!)
3. My favorite part of the day, though, is when we turn off the TV and get into bed and cuddle with each other until we fall asleep. I really cherish those moments.
4. When it comes to that time of the month, I am the worst! I am needy and whiny. I don't know how he puts up with it!
5. I'm not sure if he always thinks what I say is important, but he tries to make me feel that way. And then there are times when I get into those "dream" moments. And he tries to "Dream" with me. And when I go overboard, he makes me know it!
6. Why don't people have a name for the weight you gain post wedding, like the freshman 15?
7. Just because we are married, it does not mean we are ready to have the baby. OUR TIME WILL COME! Please stop asking! LOL
8. I ABSOLUTELY HATE DOING LAUNDRY FOR 2 PEOPLE! But I think many of you know this already. It's cute and fun in the beginning, but forget it. I can't keep up! I am surprised Ronnie hasn't had to wear MY underwear yet!
9. I'd much rather lay at home on the couch with my hubby than go out any day.
10. When we first bought the house, Ronnie had a lot of opinions about how we should decorate or where we should put things. And let me tell hasn't changed. He has a much better eye for that than I do and has an opinion about EVERYTHING! Who knew?!
11. I can't believe it's been one year already...pretty soon it will be 5 years, 10 years, 25 years! And I can't wait!



i feel the same way about almost EVERYTHING you said!! you know what? as bad as it gets, its never that bad. its always better than being alone. being with your best friend. we were with our boyfriends for so long before we married them and yet we both LOVE being married. it IS different. its great. even when you can't stand some stuff you still love them to death. :)

bedtime cuddling is the best. and i would always rather stay home and be with him. i'm hoping to feel the double income thing when i'm done with school.

forget 1 yr. i can still remember planning MY wedding and you saying "oh please i'm not even thinking of getting married. its so not in my scope of thinking." and now look at you. you won't shut up about it. you copy cat. lol!!!

but more than that....i feel like wow 10yrs. i can't believe i've been with ed almost 10yrs. thats mind boggling to me. i used to think 2 years was monumental. and i have never been able to commit to anything in my life. nothing. only ed.

life is good prima. i love being married. i wonder if our husbands love being married as much as us.

also, since you copied me by getting married i expect you to get pregnant after i have my baby. lol. not before!
