Farmer's Market meets Oriental Market

I am sad that Farmer's Market season is over. No more barrels of peppers or bags of tomatoes for $2. To celebrate the season's end, we made the biggest (and most tasty) stir fry ever with all kinds of sweet peppers, jalapenos, green and red peppers, bok choy, onions, chicken, rice and celery.

Exhibit A

Shea had to cut the onions because, well, I'm a baby.

Note the sweet, handmade, cutting board!

We fried it in oyster sauce from the Oriental grocery store next door and added this peppergarlicoil stuff that we don't really know what it is except yummy.

Chocolate milk and poison apples

Right now I am dreaming about taking a quick jet plane to Hutchinson, Kan. to see the girl who knows me best.

I want to...
 - Talk. A lot.
 - Wear sweatpants and a big hoodie sweatshirt for three days straight.
 - Drink peppermint mocha, or chocolate milk, of course.
 - Discuss the wise nature of women
 - Watch a lot of Disney movies especially Snow White
 - Dream of how it'd be really nice to eat a poisonous apple, sleep for a LONG time and then be woken up by a sensational kiss.
 - Watch my wedding video over and over.
 - Get a massage
- Be renewed in spirit, energy and sanity

The things that change

I met the husband only two years ago. Met as in, before two years ago I had never heard his name, never knew he existed. Sometimes I feel like everything changed for us in the last 730 days yet nothing changed for the people around us.

We met at a birthday party for a friend. Tonight the same friend is going out with the same group to the exact same bar. Later this month, we'll go to the exact same Halloween party. Then, we'll have the exact same family dinner for husband's birthday with the exact same menu.

Yet, on the weekends we're doing things like going to the Farmer's Market, putting together a bookshelf, cleaning, grocery shopping and of course, celebrating the two years of change.

And I like it.

The beginning

Because everyone who is anyone has a newlywed blog, welcome to ours.

We started our marriage journey with some cupcakes and red shoes in Kansas and continued the party with Mickey Mouse and baking in the Florida sun while eating ice cream and popcorn.

Now it's been exactly one month since we said our vows. Marriage is super fun. And hard sometimes. And based on the state of our living room - really, really messy.
