I'm a WIFE!!!

Posted by Salt at 6:53 PM
I am proud to say that I can now post here in good conscience!

On February 27th at 3pm, the love of my life (cheesy I know, but trust me it's true!) and I said our 'i do's on a beautiful tropical island. It was a perfect day. Even if something had gone wrong, I probably wouldn't have noticed because I was too busy smiling until my face hurt.


We're back home and enjoying our second week of newlywedded bliss. Being married doesn't feel much different. We already cohabitated for the past year and a half so there is no getting used to a shared living space. Mostly, it seems like we are being extra special nice to each other. Like last night I ordered a delicious pasta dish when we were out for my birthday dinner and planned on eating the leftovers today, but when I got home from work they were gone. I'm assuming he ate them, but I'm not even mad about it. Instead I ordered Thai food and even got some for him, too, so he has something to eat when he gets home.

Now I'm totally picturing myself a year from now calling and yelling at him for eating my dinner if this happens again.

Anyway, I already made the trek to social security yesterday and officially changed my name...a process that took a whopping 10 MINUTES. Is that unheard of or what? I'm still getting used to calling him my husband and hearing myself referred to as a Mrs., but I'm sure it will feel like it was never any other way soon enough.

Until then, we're just settling back in! Our cats are enjoying having their mom and dad together in marriage at last and we are deciding our approach at the next big step...buying a house!

Thank you all so much for the sweet congrats in Krysten's post the other day!

That food story is so cute. I'm so glad your trip to the SS was easier than you expected. Especially on your bday! Congrats a million times over! ox

Congratulations!!! The happiness is literally radiating out of that photo and out at all of us. :)

Once again Salt, CONGRATS! I am so so happy for you two!

And the SS office was my shortest name change trip. The bank took the longest, oddly enough.

Congrats!!! You look beautiful! It really doesn't feel all the different until you have to start signing your new last name ;-) As far as food goes, i get pretty upset if my husband takes my leftovers! haha, we have been married for a year and a half now...maybe that's why? :-)

Connie on March 10, 2010 at 10:21 AM said...

Congrats, love the picture you look beautiful. I didn't feel much different after getting married either, but I think we were a lot nicer to each other at first also. But after a year I'm still not used to another last name, wonder if it ever will feel like my name:)

Blue & on March 10, 2010 at 11:47 AM said...

congrats! :) I can't even imagine changing my last name yet, sooo good thing I get to wait a little!

Congrats! You look stunning!

blueviolet on March 10, 2010 at 7:31 PM said...

That totally made me laugh because yes, you will yell at him for the leftovers in a year! LOL

Cara Smith on March 11, 2010 at 7:50 AM said...

Congrats! And yes, you will definately be yelling about the food by next year, probably within the next couple months ;)

I feel the exact same way about the children question! I usually respond "we're on the 5 year plan" and that usually stops the questions, ha!

SogniSorrisi on March 16, 2010 at 9:14 AM said...

I love kids, always thought I wanted them but as the reality of that time creeps closer I feel like I could take it or leave it. I will not be leaving it as my husband really wants kids and we always agreed on having a family.

We will probably start trying soon. We've been married almost three years and I feel OK if it were to happen now. If it had happened in our first year married I would have freaked, I think.

JennyMac on March 16, 2010 at 10:57 AM said...

Gorgeous pics! Congratulations :)

And we have one little man, age 3, and people started asking me when we were having a 2nd while I was STILL in the hospital having given birth to this one. It never ends. Strangers in Starbucks will ask. come up with a sassy retort and practice it bc you will say it 1 million times.

JMay on March 17, 2010 at 1:17 PM said...

Oh the kid q, gotta love it.
Congrats on the marriage! This blog is so cute. I'm getting married in June, will join your club soon ;-)

P.S. That pic of the kids is soooo cute!

Mrs T on March 17, 2010 at 8:46 PM said...

Salt do you still have a personal blog too? I can't see it anymore in my reader.

Punctuation Mark on March 22, 2010 at 10:03 AM said...

congrats and you'll know when you're ready... never give in to pressure... have a nice week!

Wendy on March 22, 2010 at 4:14 PM said...

This is so cool! Totally smiling! :) Congrats on being a new bride and happy belated birthday!!!

Salt on March 22, 2010 at 9:45 PM said...

Thanks so much, ya'll!!!
Mrs. T - Yes I still do have a personal blog, but it's all screwed up in readers now because I switched hosting. :) I just re-set Google Friend Connect on my new site! (And I hope it works...I'm still troubleshooting things over there.)

HeatherLynn on March 25, 2010 at 9:58 AM said...

I was married for six years and I CONSTANTLY got that question...followed by "well you better get crackin" and "what are you waiting for" and "dont' wait too long!".....as if my boobs would sag too much and i'd not be able to breast feed them if i didn't hurry down the baby aisle.

Don't let those comments get the best of you....do your stuff, in YOUR time! kids, marriage....they are really really hard work and require a lot of dedication, if you're not ready, congrats! you're one of the smart people in the world that don't RUSH into things they aren't ready for.

Enjoy the life you have...and you'll know when you're ready to add too it.

in your own time dear salt, in your own time.

HeatherLynn on March 25, 2010 at 9:59 AM said...

when you start thinking more about saving $$ for baby formula and less about new "ink"....

then revisit this quandary. ;)

Lora on April 1, 2010 at 1:43 PM said...

congratulations! you have an amazing road ahead of you. It's not always smooth, of course, but it is always an amazing drive!

Iva on April 2, 2010 at 6:17 PM said...

I have two kiddies ;) a boy and a girl. My son is 3 and daughter is 1 and I'm 28 ;) I always knew I wanted kiddies ;) Happy Easter weekend to you and yours!
