Life in D31

Being the sentimental sap that I am I have already starting thinking about all the memories Mr. A and I have in our first place.

We moved in right after our honeymoon in October 2007 and we've made some great memories. We celebrated our first married Christmas we started our Annual Christmas Eve get together which has evolved from just us and our parents to include more family and even friends. We've had a few parties including our Summer '09 games and mocktails party in which we set a record for how many people our little apartment could hold with 15 let me tell you it was standing room only but we had a blast.

We had our first adventures in cooking in our tiny little kitchen, I'll never forget Mr. A's first experience with the rice cooker he forgot to add water and wondered why after several hours the rice had not cooked, or the time I forgot to add eggs to a cake mix and wound up in the floor crying because I couldn't figure out why my cake looked so funny, or Christmas 2008 when I had my great chocolate fiasco let's just say there was chocolate on the ceiling :)

We've definitely had nights with fits of laughter over something we overheard through our paper thin walls I'll just let you use your imagination on that one, and then there was of course the occassional really irritating night of ridiculously loud music at 4 in the morning yep definitely won't miss that.

Summer 2009 we created our own little patio garden and it satisfied my need for pretty flowers in my life and we had fun taking care of our little garden :) We carved pumpkins in October only to leave them outside til right before Christmas and had loads of fun trying to pick them up only to see that they had rotted and we somehow had to get them off of our third story balcony :( Don't remind me about winter 2008 when we had to move our bed because our heads were right underneath a window and were getting cold what posessed us to do it at 3 in the morning I'll never know. We've had a few run ins with the maintenance staff over our bathroom see they tiled directly over an open hole in our shower and now they don't get why they're having to re-tile yet again oy vey. I've had some slips and falls on our stairs the most memorable being with a basket full of clean clothes that wound up all over the place including Mr. A's head. Oh the joys of a third floor apartment :) Wait remind me again why this incredibly klutzy girl agreed to a house with stairs? I have a feeling there's new realms of hilariousness to explore.

We've had some really hot Friday nights in the summer at the laundromat that has no AC (get your mind out of the gutter!!) and some freezing cold winter nights at same laundromat with no heat :) we were always thankful for the dryer cycle in the winter. We've seen some pretty interesting things it's hilarious to see what some people bring to the laundromat including but not limited to a sewing machine not a portable one a big honking huge one, a large TV which he turned up incredibly loud, a chain saw because you know there's stuff in there that needs to be sawed up, and much more.

We had our first big fight in which I called my husband a dippity do head, it wasn't one of my finer moments, the good news after I called him said horrible name we couldn't remember what we were fighting about because we were laughing at my lovely choice of names :) This has since happened multiple times as I'm famous for pulling out the most absurd names, such as geekburger with cheese and nerdsauce yes I find these acceptable forms of name calling during an argument :D it's better than curse words and things you'll regret later right?

this now concludes my walk down memory lane thanks for going with me bloggie friends..

Have a great Wednesday :)



Later Alligators.....
