A lot has happened over the last year and a half of our lives, and since it would be impossible to try and blog about everything, I have decided to share all of the many things that Mat and I have learned since we tied the knot.
Discovery #1: Amanda can often fit in the weirdest places...
Discovery #2: Stairs can double as a crib. (I'm not sure what the wet spot is on the carpet...I prefer not to think about it...)
Discovery #3: Amanda can fall asleep anywhere......and so can Mat.Discovery #4: Did anyone know that you can make farting noises by blowing a straw into your armpit?Discovery #5: "Never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against 3 padawans when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha.
Discovery #6: If the car ever breaks down, we have a backup plan...it might be a little cold in the winter, but would probably be as fast as the bus!
Discovery #7: Waste not, want not. Just because all the mints are gone, doesn't mean you cant freshen your breathe using the container...Discovery #8: MnM's truly are a staple in our household. (And what's with all the creepy faces Mat has been wearing?)
Discovery #9: We still haven't convinced anyone to like tofu.
Discovery #10: I still can't convince Mat to buy new socks...
Discovery #11: Mat thoroughly enjoyed his first thanksgiving with a real turkey...
Discovery #12: Amanda still fits in a shopping cart...
Whereas Mat...cannot. (I think he may have pulled a hammy getting out...)Discovery #13: Never leave chunks of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on a plate for later.
Discovery #14: Mat is the real "Tool-Man" Taylor.
Discovery #15: Menus are not edible.Discovery #16: Elephants are not for riding...unless it happens to be a technicolored one...in which case, ride away!Discovery #17: When we all get to the other side, Brother-in-Law David may very well give Joseph Smith a run for his money in Indian Leg Wrestling.Discovery #18: Do not drink from watering cans...Discovery #19: How true that is...
Discovery #20: Cereal is our favorite food. You'd smile that big too if you had that much cereal. (I wish I could tell you that this is the most we've ever had...but its not even close.)
Discovery #21: If no candles are available, a red and brown tootsie pop will do the trick.
Discovery #22: Even real men enjoy the luxuries of life.Discovery #23: Mat has finally learned what to look forward to in aging.
Discovery #24: Mom may have some sort of pirate fantasy...Discovery #25: Contrary to what Brigham Young may have said, "This is the right place."Discovery #26: We will never be royalty in England.Discovery #27: Mat is asking for these for Christmas.Discovery #28: Even Donald Duck thinks Mat has big feet.Discovery #29: In a battle of burritos, Meg can outdo Uncle Shawn any day on fitting more in a burrito.Discovery #30: Animal Crackers dipped in cookie dough = goodness.
Discovery #31: No one ever wants to stand after running 13.1 miles.Discovery #32: If you ask your husband to do the laundry, you may be surprised at his methods.Overall, its been a great year and a half! We've learned a lot, but what we've learned the most is how perfect we are for each other! Here's to the next 50 years! (I promise I'll blog again before we hit 50 years though...)
