Real life update

I am taking a break from doing recaps to just give you a life update. Because I can. And I wanted you to know my life as a newlywed doesn't solely consist of doing wedding recaps :)

-I joined pinterest. Do you have one?? Follow me, yes?

-I donated my wedding dress. Yes, this one. More details on that later

-Matt & I are going out of town/state this weekend for a little getaway. Totally reserved the stereotypical bed & breakfast with an amazing view over the tall hills/sorta-mountains/forest. I am so excited!

-I have successfully taught myself how to bake, and by that I mean with yeast. With 4 loaves of wheat bread, a batch of cinnamon rolls, and some chocolate-related goodies under my belt (hahaha) I am quite impressed with myself. Also, I am so glad Matt brings most of the baked goods to work.

-I have been doing tons of just-for-fun reading. I haven't done this in SO long, and I had forgotten how much I missed it. Has anyone else read The Hunger Games series? I read it in like, 2 days, and then got Matt hooked on them, too.

-We finally found a church we really like and have started going to a small group. I am so grateful to have found this place and it appears to be a great fit for where we feel God is leading us right now.

-I am still not used to this whole new last name thing. It just feels off whenever I respond to it. Is that normal? How long did it take you to get used to it?

So, that's a brief update for me. How's your life??


  1. I still forget which last name to sign on paperwork! Haha

  2. Tbat's so great that you donated your dress!! :)

    Thanks for the Maui tip!!!

  3. I love posts like this where you just blurb on and on. They are fresh and fun :) It's very sweet of you to donate your dress! I hope that you enjoy your little get away with your HUSBAND! (does it sound weird referring to him as that?) and I'm sure I will feel so strange next year when I start using my married name. EEK! :)
