    Three Years

    Since this day: We’ve had two kids We’ve lived in four different houses We’ve owned three cars We’ve lived with my parents We’ve both worked for income We’ve learned how to survive on just one paycheck We’ve explored a pretty good part of Washington We’ve visited the Goonies house We’ve been to Hawaii We’ve gone through the deaths of two beloved family members We’ve had plenty We’ve been very poor We’ve seen the Middle Earth franchise come to an end (and it was sad) We’ve learned to communicate better We’ve learned to budget better We’ve learned to love more We’ve learned to rely on God more And I’ve learned that…

    Four months later…

    One year and four months ago, I walked through the door of a coffee shop on my first date with a blue-eyed, dark-haired man with a love for J. R. R. Tolkien and a penchant for dancing to music wherever and whenever he chose. Three weeks after that, I realized I was in love. And a year layer, I married him. It was the best decision I ever made. He is without a doubt the perfect man for me and I cannot imagine anyone better. Happy four months, my love. I could not be happier with anyone else.

    Friday Links

    Moss; tiny barnacles.  Weekend Cuteness: You totally need to see this kitten and this bunny wrestle. (Warning, cuteness overload) Lazy Walruses! (Am I the only one that wants to scratch their bellies?) Weekend Weirdness: Mrs. Doubtfire recut as a horror film. Simulatiously hilarious– because we all know Mrs. Doubtfire isn’t a horror movie– and kind of creepy. Weekend Giggles: This girl doesn’t get how automatic doors work. Dogs… are weird. Weekend Food: Not really a recipe, but I totally want to make a Killer Whale cucumber. I want to make pretty cupcakes like this. (You should just browse Sweetapolita’s entire website. SO pretty. So tempting. I need to bake more.)…

    Five Months.

    As I mentioned yesterday, it was Mr. Owl and my 5 month anniversary. His parents apparently kept making fun of us for celebrating by saying they had been together for five hundred and something months (they’ve been married for 43 years), but I think inside they just think we’re cute. And maybe a little young… and possibly pathetically inseparable… but mostly just cute. We celebrated by going out for Mexican food. We nearly consumed all of a ginormous burrito, and did consume all of a cheese crispy (crisp tortillas topped with cheese, guacamole, onions, and tomatoes)… and afterward, we went to the store and got Reeses Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bars…
