9 Months Married to THIS Hunk of Burnin' Love

Isn't he just the cutest thing you've ever seen? 

Today marks 9 months of us wearing wedding bands on our left-hand ring fingers. We could have had a baby!! "Could have" being the key words in that sentence. We didn't, in case you were unawares. (Which is really kind of crazy to think about because I feel like we've been married forever which means that I'm a little more hesitant in wanting to get pregnant because it will feel like FOREVER. Oooohhhh dearrrrr).

In honor of the big 0-9, I thought I would share with you 9 things that I love to do with Darin. I like to:

1. Sleep in on a Saturday morning, cuddle, then sleep some more.
2. Pluck each others facial hair.
3. Pants each other and let it evolve into a screaming (me) wrestling match.
4. Squish into our recliner and watch old TV shows on our computer...together. 
5. Go to the temple... together. 
6. Cook a yummy dinner or breakfast and then enjoy it...together
7. Play catch... together. 
8. Go for drives and jam out to our favorite music (or... my favorite music)... together
9. Due to the PG rating of this blog, we'll just leave this last one blank... together :).

Just to name a few... lucky for you we are at month 9, and not 99.

Last night, our new insurance agent felt the need to give us some marriage advice: "Marriage isn't easy but just stick it out together". Not the first time someone has felt the need to pour these profound words of wisdom on us. Well, let me just tell you, after 9 months of marriage (I'm pretty much a professional at this point), marriage is a piece of cake, and we DO plan on "sticking it out together" thank you very much Mr. Auto Insurance man. Clearly there is a reason that so many people give us "newly weds" this advice. I doubt we are the only ones that have heard it, but just for the 9 month record, I don't feel like I am "sticking anything out", it is a 100% pleasure and privilege to be married to Darin. I wouldn't want it any other way.  

I am giddy in love with this boy.

  1. Awesome picture ^. Isn't marriage amazing? We've been married 6 1/2 years and I still love it. I too have never felt like I had to stick it out. So far marriage has been a pleasure and really easy. I guess it's all in who you marry.
    Oh and the 9 months of pregnancy really is long!!!
