Two is better than one

It's crazy how since we've been married, we feel like we see each other WAY less than we did when we were dating or engaged. Have any of you experienced that?

Since I started working 40 hours a week, and since he decided to take the LSAT, our time together has decreased significantly! I don't think I have made the big blog announcement but yes, Joshua is taking the LSAT on December 5th! It is something he has always been interested in doing and with the economy being the way it is, he decided that in order to be more successful in the future, law school was the right fit for him. When he decided to go ahead with the LSAT, I asked if he wanted to watch "Legally Blonde" to give him some inspiration, but he shot that down!

I fully support him in this new endeavor. And if any of you know Josh well, you know that he is VERY good at arguing and winning! :) He has done really well on his practice tests and has continued to improve each week. I am one proud wife!

This is one of my favorite pictures from our bridals. His face is so adorable.

I feel like I love Josh more and more everyday. Marriage is a big adjustment, but I am grateful to be going through this big adjustment with Josh. He is so patient with me and he works so hard in all that he does so that we can have a successful future. Our busy lives make our time together that much more precious. Sometimes I find myself missing him like crazy while I'm at work. Especially on days when I know I will only see him briefly in passing as I get home at 5:30 and he leaves for his LSAT study course from 6 until 9. I don't know if he knows how excited I get to see him.

We always have so much fun together-whether it's popping popcorn and watching some episodes of "The Office" together, or going on dates, or teasing each other about the weird people we used to date :) or snuggling in bed, it's always a good time. We are also learning how to adjust to living with each other. Josh is ALL man and I am ALL girl, so you can imagine that life can get a little interesting for us. I am learning that Sunday afternoons are spent watching MANY football games(I've actually been learning a lot about the NFL) and he is learning that I HAVE to get my sleep or else I can't function very well and most of all, he has had to learn that I cry a LOT. Most of the time, it's for no reason but I have always been that way and wish I didn't have such powerful waterworks!

I am so grateful to have Joshua for eternity. I love him more than anything and can't imagine life without him. A few weeks ago, my alarm went off and when I woke up, I realized we had been holding hands in our sleep. Life is good.

This is a picture from our wedding day that my brother took. I don't know why, but I LOVE this picture. I think it just captures our personalities very well.
I love my hot honey.

I know that feeling too! Codee goes to school at night so by the time we get to see each other its just for an hour or so. And some nights we just go to the gym so I feel like it's not "quality time". Some weekends he works all day and all night shifts. So it's no fun. :( It just makes me appreciate the time that we do get to spend together.

p.s. we should go on a double date sometime.

That was SO stinkin cute.
Marriage is one of those amazing things that challenge us, but how could we live without these men?
Josh is ALL man, and you are ALL girl. Good call on that. But you know, it just makes you that much more adorable together!

I so know how you feel with not seeing your husband. I hate to say this, but if you think this is bad, wait until law school starts!! My honey isn't in law school, but graduate school is definitely hard on the family. You can do it, and it will pay off!!

I loved you post Allison! Isn't marriage just the best? Even when you don't get to spend as much time together? I know how you feel cause my hubby and I have opposite schedules. We see each other for maybe 30 minutes a day and it's hard! But it makes the time we do get to spend together even better. One day I need to meet this husband of yours!

What a cute couple. Seriously! Holding hands in your sleep? Now that is true love! I hope you guys get to start spending some more time together... maybe some good quality time would be a double date with your favorite beyotch and husband?
