Relationship Status: { Married }

I love writing about my family and I have this wonderful man to enjoy my family with.

I just recently wrote a post about our 6 Years of Marriage. I packed it full of pictures and what we've learned over the last 6 years, so today I wanted to share some things you might not know about us.

We met online. Myspace. We met almost 11 months later, at a Barnes & Noble.

Our first date, we saw Awake and I stole a goodnight hug in a light flurry of snowflakes.

Every year we try and pick up a movie for our anniversary. It's sort of our thing.

We were married exactly 8 months after he asked me to be his girlfriend.

We went through the LDS Salt Lake City Temple on our 3rd Wedding anniversary, to be sealed as a family. We had the amazing experience of bringing Miss A, (5 months old) with us.

We tell each other everything. He's my best friend, literally. If I need to gossip or just vent and my sister is busy, I find him. He's learned to just listen and not react unless asked to. It's perfect.

Let's Make a List.

10 THINGS MY HUSBAND WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND

1. What it's like to crave some alone time.
     I love my girls but a shower alone once in a while would be nice! 

2. The way a new cut & color can make you feel like a star.
     But what guy really can? I'm sure there are very few.

3. How hard meal planning/grocery shopping can be.
    It doesn't just happen, it takes a lot.

4. Why I won't go in somewhere looking the way I do some days.
     Seriously some days, WalMart isn't an option & I've seen some crazy stuff there.




5. How I can be so calm during labor. 

6. That at one point during they day the house was clean.

7. How two little girls can have so much attitude.
    It's just beginning though.

8. The joy of finding the perfect bra.

9. Why I am better at shopping for him than he is.

10. My love of chocolate and a nice TV drama.

In-law Drama & Babies.

I'm not sure what makes my in-laws do the things they do. I am however very tired of the way they question every decision I make. 

For example, the fact that I didn't want any visitors while I was in labor with Miss A, my mom and baby sister took me to the hospital and waited till my husband showed up then left to pick up around my house & love my dog. My younger sister stopped by with food for the husband that night, weren't there for more than 5 minutes total. 

Or that I didn't want kids or very many visitors in the hospital after I had her. I didn't need a crowded room while I was relaxing and enjoying my first hours as a mom. (If you like to do that, that's fine I'm not judging, its just not what I wanted to have happen.)

Every time they threw a fit. Complaining, saying it was weird. Like when they got mad because I was tired of people showing up whenever with whoever they wanted after I got home and said something about it. My house, my baby, my rules. 

The newest thing is the fact that I'm having my girls share a room. I just finished putting the toddler bed back into the nursery & setting up the new crib. They fit perfect in that room together. I grew up always sharing a room, I loved it. Once I was older I got my own room, just when I started feeling like I needed my own space. And again, my house, my girls, my rules. 

Every one parents different. My husband and I have agreed on a certain way that makes us all comfortable and happy. It's worked for us for over 2 years now. My sisters and their boyfriends choose to parent different than us, as do my brother, his fiance and his son's mom. They do what works for them. I might not agree with their styles, but they know their kids and I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, it's not my place

Having our new addition joining us so soon really has me on edge. I'm not ready for any drama with my in-laws. They're just going to need to accept that I do things different than them. I don't want an audience at the birth of Miss M, Miss A will be with my family, we'll only have a few visitors at the actual hospital and then people can schedule a time to visit at home after. It's really that simple. 

I don't know what to do. I'm starting to stress out about what they're going to do. I don't need my brother in law telling me that I need medication, because I like things a certain way. (Still can't believe he said that, I should have strangled him.)

 But really friends, what do you do?
