I'm Baaaackk!

And I'm marrrried :)


The wedding was perfect! Once we get all of the pictures back from the photographer, I'll share them! We had a great honeymoon too. Got to go ziplining in Jamaica and scuba diving in Grand Cayman. That was AMAZING! We had a blast. Towards the end of the cruise, the weather got pretty rough and I got pretty seasick. Poor Skyler had to take care of me :(

It's been a whirlwind since we got home. Christmas was pretty crazy, running from house to house. And then I've developed a respiratory infection. I tried to wait it out but Skyler ended up having to take me to the doctors office. He's really getting to experience the whole "in sickness and in health" aspect of our vows! I got a shot and a bunch of meds. I'm starting to feel a little better but still have a nasty cough!


We've found that being married to each other isn't so different. I thought I would have trouble adjusting living with someone else since I've lived alone for 16 months. But we are making it work :) We are, however, finding out things we didn't really know about each other. Finding little habits we like. And finding little habits we don't like (Skyler, put the toilet seat down!).


Yesterday, Skyler and I did our first DIY project. We installed our new cooktop. I've had it for a while, it just needed to be installed. Here's the old cooktop when I first moved in. Harvest gold, coil electric, gross:




And here's the new one (the walls, countertops, and cabinets have been painted for a while now):



MUCH better! It took us about an hour to change out everything. And we only wanted to throw it across the kitchen once or twice. It took a lot of teamwork, trading out when one of us got tired or mad. It looks so nice and I LOVE it! Now hopefully I can get the oven switched out soon too. But that's a much larger project for another time :)

I've missed you all so much! And I've missed blogging. I'm really looking forward to getting back into the groove of things so be looking for new things on here!

And in case you haven't noticed, I've got my own domain name now! You are now at www.notsohomemade.com! SO excited :) I've been meaning to do this for a while now!
