One month of marriage down...forever to go :)
Now, we've never been ones to celebrate monthly milestones...heck, if we are being honest I don't know if we have ever acknowledged our dating anniversary in the last 3 years...and I am almost positive neither of us know the exact date for that anyway...all we know is it was the end of July ;)
However, when we realized that our one month anniversary landed on a Tuesday...a Taco Tuesday at that...we couldn't resist the chance to celebrate :)
Our first real date was at Mi Ranchito a little over 3 years ago...I remember that date (and all the nerves that came with it) as if it were just yesterday! Who knew, that 3 years ago in a Mi Ranchito I would be on my last first date with my future husband?! I know I sure didn't! All I know...is that I am so glad that after months of dropping not so subtle hints, I was able to finally convince AJ to ask me out on that date ;)
And here we are now...one month into marriage, and I have to say...being married to AJ is pretty much the best :)
This month will most definitely go down as one of my most favorite (and busiest) months!
After we said "I do" we celebrated our marriage with our friends and family
We spent a week in Mexico on our honeymoon
Spent more time than any one person should in the Baltimore airport...aka hell
Moved into our new home
Spent an evening drinking wine from margarita glasses, opening wedding gifts in our new living room, and being reminded of how lucky we are to have such amazing people in our lives
Had our favorite little person over to remind us why we kept the play set in the backyard
I began my eighth year of teaching...and my first as Mrs. Smith :)
We had the living room and kitchen painted....
Spent a few man-hours painting the hallways ourselves....
Bought a new grill...and ate dinner outside for a week straight!
Hosted our first BBQ
Bought new furniture...
and we visited Home Depot a few dozen times...and even took a drywall/painting class
As you can see our first month of marriage was definitely a BUSY one!! While we are both exhausted pretty much all the time from all the crazy exciting times this past month, I wouldn't change a thing! And if this month is any indication of what the future holds...I think we are in for a fun ride :) Bring on month 2!
