One month! (+two days)

This post is a couple of days late, but oh well.

Adam and I were married a month ago! Can you believe it?! It has been the best month. Here are just a few things we have done since getting married:

  • Moved to Texas
  • Moved into a nice apartment
  • Adam started his internship
  • Became part of new ward
  • Received church callings
  • Studied Tagalog (I only know a titch now, but it’s more than I knew last month!)
  • Lost our voices
  • Made homemade ice cream (with Oreos) (okay, Adam made it. I just enjoyed it.)icecream
  • Got our voices back
  • Sang in the choir for stake conference
  • Went to the San Antonio Temple
  • Got used to Austin traffic system (or began to, anyway)
  • Began reading The Lord of the Rings series and some other good books
  • Killed a lot of spiders (and one cockroach)
  • Watched a real Texas thunderstorm…and several firetrucks and ambulances that came to our complex when one of the buildings caught on fire…(but everyone was okay, don’t worry)
  • Learned that leftover mashed potatoes and gravy from the Elders’ quorum potluck can get old (so I got sort of creative)
  • Skyped
  • Politics, nightly news
  • Family Home Evenings! (Let me put in a plug here–I LOVE Family Home Evening. It is inspired. We’ve been studying “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” and it has been fantastic!)
  • Put glow-in-the-dark stars on our ceiling ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Played a lot of Five Crowns (and, for the record, I got my best score ever–ZERO!)
  • Got hometaught
  • Started good family traditions
  • Solved all the world’s problems

On Sunday, we celebrated and had a nice dinner — chicken enchiladas! Mmmm. We also had carrot cake (Adam’s favorite) for dessert.


This has been the most wonderful month. Life just keeps getting better and better! I absolutely love being married to Adam! He is my best friend and such a patient, loving, thoughtful husband. I love him!

  1. I guess “traditions” may not have been the correct word because I don’t mean traditions in the traditional way (ha), but…”traditions” still fits. We started the tradition of family prayer and family scripture study. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess you can count homemade ice cream (and oreos) as a tradition too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Solved all the world’s problems, eh? That’s awesome, me and Devri have been meaning to have an FHE where we do that for months. I’m glad someone else was able to do it first though ๐Ÿ™‚ Fun stuff!

  3. I like how you celebrated being married one month over what we did…pregnancy test confirmation night. Actually, we just looked forward to Valentine’s instead. I’m so glad that Sarah’s on board now to update the blog! Woo hoo!! Can’t wait for you guys to come back. You need to move into our ward, cinderblocks are the coolest! (Okay, maybe not, but you really can work with them.) Love you guys!!!

  4. Yeah, we solved the world’s problems. . . that was the easy part. The hard part is getting everyone else to do the things that will make the solutions work!
