Yesterday was our one month anniversary.

This is what I did:

  1. Made breakfast for us.
  2. Cleaned the kitchen.
  3. Obsessed over the newest wedding photos Kelli put up.
  4. Went to the Dr. for an antibiotic for the UTI. Had my hip x-rayed as well, since my leg has begun to go numb whenever I sit down. Maybe I should write a post on it…
  5. Went to Ross and TJMaxx and found some home decor stuff.
  6. Went grocery shopping.
  7. Came home and made whole wheat mac and cheese (definitely getting added to the Lovely list)
  8. Blogged
  9. Slept

This is what he did:

  1. Ate breakfast
  2. Scheduled my Dr.’s appointment for me (I am a procrastinator when it comes to personal health)
  3. Worked from home
  4. Helped me unload groceries
  5. Shared his mac and cheese with me
  6. Worked
  7. Slept

So basically we celebrated our first month of marriage by eating eggs together, carrying around plastic sacks, eating a meal intended for a three-year old child, and sleeping. I’m not complaining… exactly. But it does seem like most couples make a big deal out of the wedding anniversaries for the first year. The problem was, I wanted him to magically know this on his own, and that never works out.

We exchanged gifts on the wedding day, and I wound up with a beautiful pearl necklace, but only because I pounded it into his skull that I was giving him something I had put a lot of thought and time into.

I’m a get-to-it kind of girl, why all of the sudden this passiveness relatied to getting what I want? I hope it doesn’t take me many more anniversaries/special days to realize that I need to speak up and say what I want.

And you know what? Eating mac and cheese out of the same bowl while watching our new favorite show Bones on Hulu was really nice. I wouldn’t mind if we celebrated month two in the exact same manner.
