Making Time for Marriage

Making Time for Marriage

When I got married almost four years ago, I loudly declared that we would never be one of those couples. You know, the couple that is so wrapped up in themselves and their newlywed bliss that it seems like they have dropped off the face of the earth. Single friends get left behind and they seem to have promoted themselves to a different social circle: the married crowd. I am still a newlywed at a mere forty-five months into marriage, but I am learning that it is also possible for the pendulum to swing to the other side. You can prioritize ... Read More »

How DINKs Do Disney

According to our Disney fanatic friends, doing Disney as DINKs (sans kids) is a must. I was on the fence about doing Disney as a twenty-something couple, because I had only been once when I was seven, so I didn’t really remember Disney in detail. Due to a wedding of dear friends down south and our vacation schedule, we decided… it’s time to check Disney off the list. And I have to say… they were right. Doing “DINKY” Disney was awesome! There are entire blogs devoted to the Disney culture and vacation experience, and I’m no expert, so I won’t go into ... Read More »

Staving Off the Baby Rabies

I have had the same conversation with at least four people in the last two weeks. On the 21st, Nick and I celebrated two years of marriage, and the same question is on everyone’s mind: So when are you guys having kids? We’ve talked about this before, but it is a cultural norm for married couples to begin having kids about this time. It is a perfectly understandable and even acceptable question to ask me. (If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m a very open person. I mean, I’m a blogger for goodness’ sake.) So this is my ... Read More »

Erika’s 2012 in Review

Welp, it’s that time of year again – that dreaded time when we look back and realize how many resolutions we made and failed to accomplish the year before. In a smart move, I publicly made only five for 2012 – which were: Write more Become more active Reach our financial goals See new cities Remain baby-free Remain baby-free. Yay! We did it! Remaining child-free enabled me to accomplish much of my other four goals with fervor. Write more. I look at this goal now and just have to laugh. The good news is – I did write more than ...

Lip-Smackin’ Matrimony (or How Marriage Made Me Fat)

I came back from a fantastic vacation at the beach with my family two weeks ago, stepped on a scale, and came to the realization that I have gained approximately TWENTY FIVE pounds since I moved to New Jersey just over two years ago. I did the calculations and found that I was officially outside my healthy BMI, and therefore “overweight.” It shocked me because I have never packed on this many pounds before. For most of my life, I have been an “average” size 8 (depending upon designer of course), and therefore have recognized this as my normative state. ... Read More »
