6 Month Anniversary

Yesterday was our six month anniversary! The time seems to have gone by so quickly. It's only a half-anniversary so we didn't get each other presents but we did go out to dinner at Chili's.



We ate a ton of food. I had a "food baby" for a while.

Our first six months have been so much fun. I'm excited for the next six!

Attempted Craftiness

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been trying a few different craft projects to make our apartment a bit more homey and less dull. I've been fairly pleased with my work so far, particularly considering I haven't done a lot of craft stuff before.

I've done a few things to liven up our little kitchen and bathroom:

I found this cool flowery design on the internet and thought it might look cool on our boring cupboards. I'm hoping to put another couple of designs on the other cupboards


John helped me make this floral arrangement. If I could have afforded it I probably would have included more flowers but I still think it looks pretty nice.


These are in the bathroom. I made them out of foam board and scrapbook paper.

Our apartment is starting to look a lot better!

Five Months

John and I have been married for over five months now and it has been awesome. We're always told by other young couples that the first year of marriage is the hardest but adjusting to married life hasn't been too difficult for either of us. We're just enjoying spending time together. It might be because we were apart for most of our engagement so we appreciate being able to be around each other so much.

We're both taking Summer classes because we want to get our bachelors done as soon as possible. John's also volunteering at the hospital and is working in an organic chem lab at school so he's pretty busy.



Recently I've started doing some crafty projects to try to make our apartment a bit more attractive. I haven't done too much with it in the past because I couldn't think of anything to do but luckily I've been a bit more inspired. I'll post some pictures of these projects in the next couple of days.
