Diaries of a Newlywed

Hello world. I'm sorry I've been so MIA these days.

So I got married.

3 weeks ago.

And life as we know it is completely different from there on.

Some noteworthy things to know for all you haven't gotten married and moved in with a man yet...

  1. Having a nickname to refer to your husband is cool. I refer to mine as The Hubster. I think Ford should name a car after it.
  2. The male race is so weird. Seriously, they are so different and abnormal. I come from a house filled with all girls and my dad so living with a man alone is just plain strange.
  3. Setting up your own house is so fun but tiring. Thank God for bridal registries...it saved us a million shopping trips to get random things like sheets, lamps, forks, etc. All we had to do was organize all our furniture and decorations. Guess what? The house is so cute now...it's exciting starting from scratch. The next feat we have is painting. Maybe next month...
  4. Don't try to be the perfect wife. You'll just end up spoiling your man and then he'll just expect you to be that perfect wife for the rest of your life. My philosophy is to give him a little at a time so he's more appreciative later on when I'll do more. So far I haven't even cooked a meal in the house. I think next week that bone will be thrown.
  5. Even though married life takes a lot of work it's fun, especially racing up and down the stairs. Hopefully five years down the road I can say the same...
