a day in the life: saturday edition

The Writer by Ellie Goulding on Grooveshark

After watching three hours of Vampire Diaries, hubs and I decided to emerge into the world around 3 o'clock. We'd be awesome vampires, clearly. Just ignore our dirty mirror and messy bed. Clearly I'm super domestic and on top of all cleaning aspects of our teeny tiny home. 

FINALLY got my ring back after having it gone for 2 weeks. Our one year anniversary band was put on and now it is all done! Hubs told me to flirt it up and see if I still got it while my ring was gone. I didn't do that, but I did have a couple encounters. Because no ring around here means fair game. So then I started wearing this simple band on my ring finger and another guy asked if I was waiting for a missionary. "Nope, I'm married. My ring is just in the jewelers." Those marriage crazed mormons. ;)

Thank goodness I will now be considered a married woman at school now. Here's a close up of my ring, which turned out beautifully. 

Driving time always starts out as bonding time when we discuss babies, dental school application stuff, kitties, and groceries we need, then slowly Josh starts bobbing his head and singing along to music and I make up people's life stories in my head as we pass them. Because no one passes Josh. Road trips are serious business. 

Oh goodness. This guy. My absolute favorite person in the world. 

A $90 shopping trip at WinCo was much needed this week (maybe if I keep saying that hubs will believe it. he allllways mentions how he lived off $20 a week when he was single whenever the grocery bill was higher than expected. Then I always remind him that he lived off butter, bread, and  Spaghetti O's and that I make him delicious meals every single day and he's happy again). Also, two trips is for pansies, especially when you live on the third floor (no elevator, mind you. yeah moving in was quite the treat). 



xo,

  8. Marriage-crazed mormons, indeed! My ring is one of the first things guys notice... and next thing I know, they're asking a casual question about how long I've been married. Smooth, boys. Smooth.
    And don't worry... I'm super domestic too ;)

    1. Hahaha love this! Soooo true. Not going to lie, back when I was single I'd always do a casual ring check which got me into a couple awkward situations. Now I just laugh for the poor souls who find themselves in the same boat. Also, glad I'm not the only "super domestic" wife around here ;)
