My Week

Our first week as a married couple is over. I think reality is starting to set in and I have to go back to work tomorrow. I have not taken this long off of work and just stayed at home. It was so nice not having a schedule or someplace to go. We played golf three different days. Yesterday, we took some of our wedding gift cards and bought new pots and pans, silverware and sheets. Tonight we are sleeping on 800 thread count sheets- oh la la. The week has been great.

I had a weird experience yesterday. I was dropping of some film and realized after filling out three envelopes that I was using the wrong name. That coupled with the fact that Cowboy booked a tee time under my married name--it was weird seeing it in black and white. We have officially decided that I will be hyphenating my last name. Tomorrow will be a challenge to remember to do that.

Being married hasn't really felt all that different. However, I do like the title "wife". I have really cherished my time with Cowboy this week. I'm sorry that it's over.

Adjustments, adjustments, adjustments. You'll get used to it, but don't be surprised if you say/write the old name on occasion six months or even a year from now.

Welcome back to the real world. Hope your first day back isn't too rough.

So glad you are enjoying life as his Mrs. I Love the pic of ya'll in the header. Love it.

I remember the first time someone called out my married name, I was glancing around for my MIL. Surreal!
