500 Days of Summer...and Winter, Fall, and Spring

This week the hubs and I celebrated 500 days of living it large married style. Yup,  he donned a tux and I donned a white gown roughly 500 days ago and it's been the sweet life ever since, I feel incredibly blessed. He's my better half for sure.

 I thought I'd take a look back at a few memories of these 500 days...

We walked the quiet beaches of Bald Head Island, with no one else for miles. 

I learned to cook and came to the realization that when you marry a six foot man just making two of everything doesn't work. Tripling is more like it. And that's without leftovers. The man can eat!!! 

We celebrated our first Thanksgiving as Mr. & Mrs. and I made a huge mess of our apartment kitchen whipping up homemade biscuits in the morning. One of my husband's roommates once told me that the way to Mike's heart was through biscuits. He could not have been more right. 

Our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. we decorated our apartment with paper snowflakes. We learned that Mike is a whole lot better at making paper snowflakes than me. But that's okay, I work with 4 and 5 year olds so any paper snowflake I make will look pretty to them. If I attach a beautiful and intricate paper snowflake to your Christmas gift this year, chances are Mike made it and I'm only faking crafting savvy. 

I graduated college, with my new married name on my diploma. I guess you could say I earned my M.R.S. 

I convinced my hubby to try almond milk, vegetarian lasagna, Larabars, and carob candy.  One day he asked to try my Morning Star vegetarian corndog and he loved it. Those are now his favorite snack of choice. Just don't tell anyone I let that secret out. If any of his guy friends ask Mike eats steak three meals a day, okay?

We moved twice and my poor husband got stuck with the job of hanging everything.  After enduring a few product fails (don't buy floating book shelves from Bed, Bath, and Beyond) I think we've become pros at knowing what will hang well and what won't just by looking at the back of a frame, shelf, or piece of art. Seriously. You got questions? Ask. 

We've finally learned how we can manage to get both of us into the same photo without having to force a crash course in DSLR photography upon an innocent bystander. However, I think toting around an 8 foot mirror may prove challenging at times. 

What are some of your favorite married memories?

This is a sweet post! I love the snapshots of over a year of marriage. There is so much to learn about being married isn't there? We totally did the floating shelves and then returned them too. ha.

Thanks, Aileen! I agree, there is so much to learn about being married. And how funny that y'all had a similar floating bookshelves experience! We wished we had read the consumer reviews before we bought.
