The Newlywed Game: 1 month anniversary!

I can't believe Sunday was our 1 month (technically 4 week) anniversary! My moms (mom and mother-in-law) both emailed us happy 1 week anniversary, a week after we got married.

I was thinking things have been pretty crazy this first month of marriage.

The first week was our honeymoon. First time on vacation with only each other for a week. Probably should have tried that out before we got married. But I knew from our many years of dating we would have an amazing time. Which we did!

In the months before the wedding, there were a lot of little things that were costing us money. The trip to vegas for bachelor/bachelorette party, mani/pedi, getting hair cuts, etc. I also took a week and a half off without pay for the wedding prep and honeymoon. So, I was looking forward to coming back to the tiny apartment, working regularly, and getting our finances in order.

Then, we spent some of the wedding money on the new man toy. And we got the opportunity to move to a bigger apartment! Good bye money! It costs $100 to transfer cable?! $30 to transfer gas and electric?! Then our place didn't come with a washer or dryer and the laundry facilities are a hike away. So, out to sears we went! Love all the new stuff but jeez! I don't know what Suze would say!

Hubby was excited that he got an extra $80 on his pay check since his status changed to married. Gotta start saving that to pay off the washer and dryer! Just kidding kids, we have the money! Remember don't buy stuff you don't already have the money for!

But that is about all that has changed. Our wedding day was amazing, we had so much fun, but it was a weird experience. The reason I was bugging him for 3 years to marry me was I wanted to stand up in front of our family and friends and speak those sacred vows. The night before the wedding at the rehearsal dinner at my parents' house, he was celebrating with his friends and family and they figured since the wedding wasn't until 4:30 pm they could party all night long. I was not excited about this plan. He was staying at a hotel with his parents and a bunch of the guys decided to crash there too. So a lot of what I was thinking about at the alter is "Is he hung over? Drunk? Is he going to pass out?" I was really worried he was going to pass out. I think we both did a good job saying our vows. That was what was important to me. But afterwards, I didn't feel any different. I think it is because those vows aren't going to be too difficult for me to keep. I really want to watch the video from our ceremony and get the professional pictures!!!


  1. congrats to you! Did you save the wedding cake top?

  2. Congratulations. I've never been hungover for either of my weddings although I was slightly drunk for one.

  3. Martinis- We did not. We drove down the coast of California for our honeymoon and didn't want to have to worry about the cake top.

  4. Awwwww that's kinda sad/weird that you were wondering if he was still drunk. But anyways, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! I hope he was more sober than sober! =D

  5. Happy Anniversary!! In the first two years of my marriage we changed jobs, moved out of state and back, had a baby and went through 3 of luck to you for many happy years ahead. Marriage has certainly been quite an adventure for me & my husband!

  6. Ambar, yeah he was sober. I think I have just seen too many of those america's funniest home videos where the groom falls over or whatever.

    Gigi- Wow! That is a lot of stuff to go through!

  7. Congratulations! Hope you both have a wonderful life together. :)
