A Saturday in Our House

7:45- Wake up and Biz gets ready to go to the gym.  He brings me coffee in bed and hops out the door (literally...he is a very peppy morning person!).

8:00-9:30- I enjoy coffee in bed while perusing Instagram and pinterest.  Lately I've been loving the hashtag #teacherlife.  It's fun to see what other young teachers are up to. 

9:30- Eat a bowl of Frosted Flakes while waiting for my school laptop to boot up.

9:45-11:30- "Do lesson plans."  (aka- intermittently do lesson plans and surf the web...this time looking for a tutorial to make a magnet board out of an old frame)

11:30- Biz gets home.  Watch him rake up the yard while writing a blog post.

12:00- Looking through our almost empty pantry and fridge to make a yummy lunch.  I'm thinking about putting pizza sauce and mozzerella cheese on Texas toast and calling it a mini-pizza.

1:00-6:00- Time for cleaning and grocery shopping!  Yes, this is a super fun adult life!  ;]

7:00- Easter service at our church.  What a special holiday to celebrate...the reason why we believe what we believe!

And that is a Saturday in our lives.  Nothing too exciting, but hey, it works!  :]

My Thoughts on Being a Wife

  • Hanging out with my husband is so much fun.  Watching a movie?  FUN.  Eating pizza?  FUN.  Grocery shopping?  FUN.  Cleaning the house? (kinda) FUN.
  • It is hard going to work every day and trying to be completely "there."  Most days I'd rather be home supporting my man.  Does that make me a complete anti-feminist?  Nope.  I simply know that I have a calling above teaching, and that is to love and encourage my husband. 
  • Married people can be in bed at 8:30 on a Friday night and loving it lame.  #asleepby9pm  #noshame
  • My husband is not "hubby"...he is "hubsters" (a slightly less weird version of the word, but still kinda weird). 
  • How great is it to live with my best friend every day!?!  Monotonous things are better with him (like the aforementioned cleaning).
  • For the first time in my life, I have been making the bed (almost) every day.  It's important to my husband, so it is important to me.
  • People ask when we're going to have kids...umm, WHAT?  We've been married three months.  I love being a wifey, and "school mom" to 21 littles.  But real mommy?  No thanks.   #schoolmomftw
