After the first crazy week and a half of our married life things really started to settle down. We are now totally moved in and unpacked - minus the boxes of office supplies that I'm still avoiding. And the one in the kitchen...
Ok - so I still have some rearranging and decorating to do... but who doesn't?!
John's been doing really well in school and kind of likes his job. He does the night lock-up on campus. Which basically means he wanders around until 11:30 and then goes and locks the doors to all the buildings and makes sure no one's inside. It's boring. I went to visit him the other day [and maybe sneak him out for ice cream... shhhh!] and he pretty much does nothing. He claims to do his reading assignments and other homework-y stuff, but I don't have any proof of that...
I still don't have a job. So I pretty much just sit on my booty and surf the internet for job postings in the greater Rexburg area all day.
I also do random crafty things.
|like paint this mirror...|
|and hang pictures...|
|and use wedding decor to spruce-up my living room!|
|and hang shelves in our teeny tiny bathroom...|
|and design artwork for my momma!!|
|and make fancy pillowcases! that don't match our bedspread :(|
And sometimes when I'm feeling nice I cook dinner for John.
|like this too-cheesey lasagna...|
|and questionable huevos rancheros...|
|and the eggplant parmigiana from last night that turned out DELICIOUS!|
Overall we are having a FANTASTIC time being married and getting to know each other on this whole new level. I was a little worried in the beginning that it would be too much for us to be together all.the.time since we'd spent so much time apart, but it's been the exact opposite. I can't imagine life without this guy. He makes me smile everyday - even when I don't want to. He brings me treats and rubs my feet and forces me to be healthy and exercise. It's great! [minus the exercising.]
There are still a few things we have to figure out... like ways to keep his flailing arms from breaking my nose while we sleep. [His solution is that I wear a helmet and I say we strap his arms to his sides... any other suggestions?!] And how to fit all the food we buy in the teensey-weensey pantry.
To wrap things up - here's a look at what we did today:
