Happy One Month Anniversary!

08.18.2009

It’s been a month already?!

It’s passed by so very quickly, and to be completely honest, married life has been…WONDERFUL!

Having dated nearly our entire relationship (4 years in September) long distance, it’s so nice not have to pack up my things on a Sunday or dreading going to the airport. Instead, I get to see Cent everyday. We get to cook together. We get to eat together. We get to hang out together. It’s SO nice not having to say goodbye.

And I’m happy to report that we can once again see the floor. When we returned from our honeymoon in Kauai, we were faced with a sea of boxes. Like, more than I could imagine. A mix of wedding gifts and my belongings that made the perilous trek in a UPS truck. I’m just glad everything made it here! We’ve been able to clear most of the boxes out. Yesterday we built a bookshelf together which helped a TON to store my books that had been lingering in moving boxes. Here it is (sorry about the iPhone grain):

It’s been a while since I’ve built anything. Assembling this bookshelf was a much sweatier task than I anticipated. The back panels are also a little crooked, but I think I’ll always look at this shelf fondly and remember it was the first thing we built together.

If you follow my blog at all, you know I have a major weakness for the cupcake — any cake really, in most varieties. There had been some talk of cupcakes and so I decided to whip up a batch. To be totally truthful, these are made from Betty Crocker’s Devil’s Food cake and Buttercream frosting from a tub. Still YUMMY! Plus, I got to try out the cupcake set from my bridal shower (thanks work friends!). I’ll consider that each regular size cupcake is worth two-three minis!

Sunday I wanted to mix things up a bit from boring cereal and make breakfast. Bisquick helped me out with this challenge. However, I think I should have added more milk because these babies were SUPER thick. It was kind of like eating two pancakes at once. I got a couple of good pancakes out of the pan before I broke this one:

Here’s our breakfast from Sunday morning: pancakes, honey biscuits, and scrambled eggs. Next time: bacon or sausage!

Yesterday, I was determined to make dinner. As in cook from scratch. As in not from frozen or from a box. So, I called my mom and asked her how to make spaghetti sauce. I’m happy to report that I had a cooking success! Hopefully not the last…

Happy one month-a-versary! I love you!

Finally, on the photographer front, I have sessions to blog! So look out for those :)

    1) Yay, congrats of course!
    2) I was in an ice cream store yesterday and they had “red velvet cake” ice cream and I thought of you!! Just looked it up – they have them in Texas!! http://www.maggiemoos.com/visit_a_treatery/locations.cfm?st=tx Although I don’t know if any of those towns are anywhere near you :)
    3) I should send you some of my quick and easy recipes that I made when I first started really cooking! Sauce looks good though … for someone who isn’t Italian 😉
