Just a few things...

So as of yesterday, I've been married one whole month...! Sometimes, it doesn't seem like it's been just a month, but some days, it feels like years... :)

After being a newlywed for a month, I've been asked countless times "how's married life" so I figured I would share what I've learned about being married such a short time...

1. It is really difficult for David to close closet doors when he's done with it.
2. He would rather sleep in the spare bedroom than move Tatumbell if he's in his spot in the bed.
3. He grins every time he says "wife."
4. I've almost convinced him to get a pedicure. Not sure how much longer it will take for that happen though.
5. When he's not studying, he's playing Punch Out on the Wii. Apparently, this is the most amazing, time-consuming game on the planet as it is played probably 4 hours a day at our house.
6. David loves to play with kids. Our friends Kim and Paul have a 2 1/2 year old, Ethan, and they are perfect play mates. Ethan gets mad at me if I show up at their house without David.
7. He still doesn't move my car seat back to my position if he drives my car.

But all in all, a very good month :) Now on to month 2!

Pics are up: www.willisphotography.photostockplus.com

I get a copy of all of them on disc, so I'll be playing with some of them in Photoshop to make them pretty, as I'm not thrilled with how a majority of them turned out. But the reception pictures are a hoot, so if you have about an hour of free time, check them out!

David has a Calculus test this morning at 10:00.

He set his alarm for 6am so that he would get up and study some more.

This alarm went off probably 15 times. I could hear it all the way upstairs while I was getting ready for work.

Finally, I went downstairs to the bedroom and asked if he planned on getting up. It was then 7:00.

Yes, gah, he replied. "I'm getting up now."


At 7:25, I noticed he was still in bed. And the alarm had gone off another 4 times.

"Are you still wanting to get up and study?"

"I'm up, I'm up." Said without moving an inch.

7:45 then rolls around...

and guess who is still laying in bed. Shutting off his alarm every five minutes still.

I said, "So I don't want to start nagging, but..."

To which I didn't finish my sentence cause he said "Start??"
