first 3 months of a blissful marriage -- check!

As of yesterday, we have officially been married for three months. I actually didn't even remember until about 9 o'clock last night. Shame on me! Oh well, I guess time just flies when you're having fun :)

This past week has been a weird week. Since last Sunday, I've been fighting this awesome sore throat/cold/cough combo. It started with a sore throat, which led me to take a sick day from work on Tuesday after I woke up feeling like complete poo. Then by friday afternoon, my sore throat was better but my voice was completely shot. Since my job entails talking on the phone all day, my boss ordered me home to rest my voice. By Saturday, it was still raspy, but at least you can somewhat hear me.

We went out last night and purchased a Vick's Warm Mist Humidifier for our room. We figured its a good investment because a.) the air in our house is really dry in the winter -- we constantly, unintentionally shock eachother, ourselves and the poor cats! b.) Ryan suffers from bloody noses a lot, so hopefully this well help combat some of that and c.) perhaps it will help fight off the rest of this nasty virus thing I have going on. Ugh.

We also had a mini date night last night after Ryan got home from work. We had plans to go to dinner at Red Lobster since the hubs was craving seafood and I was craving cheddar garlic biscuits (I loathe seafood) however, when we arrived at the restaurant (at 8pm, mind you) there was a 45 minute wait. We said forget it, and decided to go to Red Robin instead. It was a delicious and fattening dinner :) After we ate we decided to walk it off a little bit and check out Barnes and Noble.
While in B&N, we discovered this little gem Now, I know its not nice to make fun of other people..but really? This girl was found browing around the "World of Warcraft" section (where else?) and wearing a lovely purple, velvet cape. Why? I have no idea -- but the husband and I got a serious laugh (out of her earshot, of course) and I snuck a photo to remember the moment. Oooh, the little things that amuse us!

Until next time...

the end of another decade!

Happy New Year!!

It's so hard to believe another year has passed. Not even a year, but a new decade. I think back to where I was ten years ago, and I am amazed. I am amazed at how far things have come in life -- how far I've come in life. I mean, ten years ago I was still in high school. Just learning to drive, plastering my walls with hockey posters and pictures of 98 degrees (no judging!) and spending late evenings at Eat N Park with friends, since we really had nothing else to do at midnight on a friday.

I look at my life now -- a college graduate, a decent career, my own home, and a wonderful husband. It's just crazy how quickly things can change in just a few short years! 2010 in particular, was a great year in itself. Mostly, because, I gained the majority of those things listed above in one year! It certainly makes me excited for 2011, and the new and exciting things that might get thrown our way :) We don't have anything major planned, except for our honeymoon! We never got to take one after our wedding due to Ryan's school schedule and my work. However, in March when he is on spring break -- its happening! Now we just need to figure out WHERE we are going :-P

I have not made any New Year's resolutions for this year. I feel that in the past when I've made resolutions, I never follow through. So, my plan is to just try and stick to things I want to do for myself and if I don't reach it by 2012, then I won't beat myself up over it. I guess my two biggest "resolutions" would include just slowing down and enjoying life to the fullest, and getting back on the right track to healthy eating with some more physical activity. Isn't that everyone's plan for themselves?? It sounds so cliche, but, its important to me!

I hope everyone had a safe & Happy New Year and heres to an even better 2011 :)
