So I was looking for ideas to make my sad tree look better, and I remembered how my sister put bows on her tree one year. So I went to Target and got a couple materials, you don't need much at all.
and simply tied a bow!

Making him a big juicy steak every once in while
Helping him the get the new Jordan pack coming out
Rush in Toys R Us and bogart to get him the latest "collectible"
Him going to see Chick Flicks with me
Him making me bubbles baths
Him killing ugly bugs
I love you's like 20 freaking million times a day!
This list can go on and on ....
I FUCKING LOVE HIM!

Sorry but it makes no sense to me! You're just going to get back in it in a couple hours. Sigh.
This is a battle my mom always lost with me! But now that I married HIM, I find myself making the bed cause I know he grew up making his bed everyday! Is this what love has done to me!!!
Not only do I find myself making the bed everyday but I find myself wanting to buy new bed sets and pillows to make the bed look "cute", "warm" and "inviting". UGH!!!
I don't know what happened to me!
Nonetheless, I want!

2. Forcing each other to go to separate friend’s parties.
3. Incapable of having any other interests except home improvement
4. Only going out with other couples.
5. Doing public things that require alcohol, without alcohol.
6. Pretend like their dog is actually their child. ( I see nothing wrong with that!)
7. Completely ignore their children.
8. Insist that they go to each other’s movies.
9. Poorly set people up.
10. Message each other goopy things on Facebook.
These were funny! You can find the articles here and here.
11. I hate when couples call each baby every single minute
12. Too much PDA, like rubbing each others ass while im behind you in line at the grocery store.
13. Kissing on the train - I don't mean a peck either, i'm talking tongue during rush hour - come on people.
I'm sure I must annoy people too thougth because hubby spoils me, I always get flowers, fruits and ballons delivered at work and I get lots of presents - he buys me things randomly and I am show off. ehh sue me! :)

I need HBO – What is this True Blood everyone is talking about?
Husband’s 30th is coming up - Can’t Wait!
Just got a MacBook Pro a couple weeks ago & I am in LOVE! I am discovering new applications and am just oooing and ahhhing.
And I am happy to see Benjamin Bratt back on TV on the cleaner – the show is ok but he is hot!
I was surprised I cared about:
Kendra from Girls Next Door being pregnant. I am a Eagles fan but never heard of her Fiance - oops!
Duggars: Josh & Anna are expecting too!
Making a cleaning schedule because my life is chaos and so is my apartment
And Etsy for home décor - uh YES! I’ll be posting my cute home finds soon.

1. Talk. Take time to talk everyday.
2. Don’t expect your spouse to be a mind reader.
3. Forget the type of compromise that means thinking of yourself in favor of finding solutions that work for you as a couple.
4. Let her have her way (or his way) sometimes. (I am sending this one to Mr. as we speak!)5. Go to weddings where you’ll likely be reminded of promises you made.
6. Be your spouse’s advocate. There are times when you may need to protect or defend your husband or wife.
7. Never go to bed mad.
8. Make reasonable requests but don’t pressure or make unreasonable demands.
9. Don’t compete with each other.
10. Play outside. I like to go hiking or swing (at playgrounds). Just because you’re married now doesn’t mean you always have to act like a grown-up.
11. Give something up, if necessary, to reach a mutual goal…s
15. Take care of your kids but don’t put them first in everything you do.
16. Learn to love your extended family.
17. Be flexible.
18. Talk about problems with your spouse or a counselor, rather than your best friend or someone who may tend to see just your perspective and may not encourage you to talk things over with your beloved.
19. Don’t depend on your spouse for everything.
20. Encourage your spouse to develop her or his talents, and do the things he or she enjoys.
21. Go on dates.
22. Keep learning about each other and the world.
23. Be loyal and faithful.
24. Believe. To me, promising that you’ll stay married to someone forever, whether you were childhood sweethearts or dated for a few months (and neither is a guarantee of marriage longevity or brevity) is an act of faith.
I will say that #9 is an issue for me and the Mr. - we joke a lot that there's a power struggle in our marriage because neither of us like to be told anything and like to always be right.
One thing i'll add that my big sister told me and I keep in my mental rolodex is to pick my battles with the hubby! I'll also add Prayer and Putting God first not only in your marriage but your life.
Any tips of your own? Share with this newlywed :)

1. to systematize
2. to give organic structure or character to: to organize the elements of a composition.
3. Informal. to put (oneself) in a state of mental competence to perform a task: We can't have any slip-ups, so you'd better get organized.
4. Another Skill I Lack!
My priorities right now are my coffee table, side table, Bookshelves (that is currently housing DVD collection, laundry room, and bathroom.
I'll be back with my progress. Any advice or tips? SHARE!

Yes, there are some adjustments like my husband trying to get used to the fact that I don’t make the bed! It makes no sense to me if I’m about to get back in it in a couple hours, this irritated him because he leaves before I wake up most the time so I’ll try to fix the bed at least once a week because I know it makes him happy.
Other ‘adjustments’ we had to get used to:
-I don’t always turn off lights in other rooms when I leave them
-He leaves his socks on the couch and bed
-I leave my clothes EVERYWHERE – I pick them up eventually
-I also leave my shoes everywhere
-He owns 200+ pairs of shoes that are all in their respective shoe boxes
-I lose my keys and Phone every day but I find them again
I’m sure this list can go on and on but my point is – adjusting to newlywed life hasn’t been hard, I’m with the man I love and it’s been amazing going thru this experience together.
I read an article on Life After Marriage and the following paragraph is exactly how I feel:
Married life is not like a romantic movie with one exciting moment after another. Married people have to still live everyday lives, do mundane chores and go about their daily routines. The sparks of romance and laughter will come and go; it's up to us to keep the fire going.
