A year ago right now…

…myself, the husband and the wedding party were sweating buckets under the Hennepin Avenue Bridge taking our wedding photos. It was 90 degrees.

Meanwhile, back in the present…

We’re both sitting in our cubes. Working.

At any rate – we had a nice weekend in the Wiscompton (read Wisconsin), going to the Dells and having a nice dinner or two with my folks.

Tonight, I’m making dinner when I get home, ready for when the hubs gets home from work. Then we’ll watch the Twins game. :)

Should be in bed.

It’s way past my bedtime. However, redoing my blog design AGAIN took priority. A storm is blowing through right now so I’m sure the husband will be waking up soon, and therefore yelling at me to come to bed.

Until then, I thought I’d give a short recap of the weekend.

(And, I just got yelled at to come to bed. Nearly a year married together and I’m already a fortune teller.)

I’ll make this quick.

I’m sitting on the couch, surrounded by Kleenexes – all used. Still sick. Walked 9 miles on Saturday, got a blister on the bottom of one of my toes, then got a pedicure from L. Last night went to the Twins game (we lost – but won tonight!)

Today, slept mostly. I was up for almost 22 hours yesterday so needless to say I was a tired girl. Especially with being sick.

Alright – I need to close the windows in our living room and go to bed before the husband sounds the alarm again. :)

Later Y’alls.

I have a wonderful hubby.

Category marriage, The Hubs

I just had to air this publicly.

Yesterday I was crabbier than can be when I came home from work. (I blame impending PMS.) I came home and slept for an hour, and when he came home I was still kind of crabby. Possibly without even realizing it, he made me laugh (repeatedly) and memories of my bad day had disappeared.

You’re a good man, Mr. Hubs, without even realizing it. It truly is the little things that count.

[end mushiness]

On a side note…I have an appointment for a consultation at Uptown Tattoo tonight. :)

Coming clean.

Alright. It’s confessional day on Blogged Bliss. I know many of you who read personally…and a handful of you I don’t. But I have a secret only a couple of you are aware of…and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m tired of hiding it.

I’ve got baby fever.

::deep exhale from weight lifted off shoulders::

Any of you who do know me know this might be the most opposite of anything you’d ever think would come out of my mouth (or fingers) – aside from me announcing I was getting married.

I was the girl in grade school, and I think even high school – where I was stoked to be a single girl forever living in a fancy loft in a big city, with my babies being my cats. The only part of that that’s true is the big city. Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely happy with the way my life has turned out – it’s just weird how my idea of my future changes with every year.

The hubs and I have talked about having kids just about as long as we’d discussed getting married. It was inevitable that we were going to get married, and the same applies to having kids. We finally kind of decided that we are going to start trying later this year. I’m both deathly afraid and totally elated about getting pregnant. And I’m also extremely scared that for whatever reason I won’t be able to.

Okay. That’s enough on that topic. I could go on and on about it…but I’d rather not be that girl.

Also – don’t be confused. I still get crabby with screaming babies and annoying brats. They’re not all cute. I don’t want them all. I just think it’d be kinda cool to have my own someday.

And, discuss.

Baby fever – get it?! Oh, my sides.

Happy day after VD.

And TGIF. Hope everyone’s VD was as fun/sexy/depressing/ridiculous/corny as you’d hoped. The hubs and I had a nice dinner at Santorini. It was spendy, but worth it. We never treat ourselves to THAT nice of a dinner – so it was welcome change. Although, I may have to wander around the neighborhood doing “odd jobs” to make up for the chunk of change we spent. :)

I’m so glad it’s Friday. I’m frightened I might be getting a cold or something, I was sweating all night last night, woke up with a sore throat, and suddenly might fall asleep while typing.

Tonight, we’re staying home and eating our VD leftovers. I’m so looking forward to it.
