[Mom of a Dog]

Let's face it. I'm probably being a bad "doggie mom" right now. I put our little cocker spaniel outside for some fresh air about an hour ago and she's beginning to worry that I forgot that she exists. I can see her standing on her outside doghouse trying to look into the living room window (we have blackout curtains - I can see her, she can't see me) and she is whining at the top of her little pup lungs.

Bad mom or not, she's staying out there. We have to push the little birds out of the nest every once in a while, right?

[his job sucks.]

I have finally discovered the first suckage of our married life: Mr. C working 12 hour shifts all week. I know it could be worse, but it is what it is. Don't get me wrong, it definitely does not suck to read InStyle, drink ridiculous amounts of coffee, and lounge in yoga clothes while watching Bridesmaids for a couple hours before he gets home but that begins to make me feel a little Real Housewives.

I mean, last night I cooked this big dinner and everything was all lovely when he got home, but let's face it, I would be burnt out if I tried that every night. Tonight Mr. C is going to have to settle for clean laundry and the pets fed. Don't judge, it's easier to feed a dog and a cat than it is an adult man. ;) If I could pour some dry food into a bowl and set it on the ground and he'd be happy; I would probably do just that.

I just realized that sounds demented. Don't call a psych ward; I promise I don't feed my husband cat food.

On that note,
Mrs. Coons

[we're married!]

I know that by now I am you guys' worst friend ever, right?

If you have decided to love me again then you are the but if you have deserted, I cannot hold it against you, I've been gone for 2 months!

We finally have internet in the house! Whoo! I went without it for the past 2 months, aside from Facebook and Pinterest via my handy little Droid, but it really isn't the same as having all of my favorite bloggers on my big ol' laptop screen.

As I mentioned, I am now THE Mrs. Coons! Holla!
We were married on September 24 on Tybee Island. PS I can't believe we've almost been married a month! We-erd.

We then lived in wedded bliss with a side of stress since our reception was on October 8 back here in Atlanta. I had to finalize everything while being newly married AND both of us working our little arses off at our jobs. Don't get me wrong, my little Kindles (these would be my students) are great and I love teaching, but it is HARD to be on while your mind is focused on a wedding/reception.

Anyway, the reception turned out beautifully and I was so happy to have my very best friends, Colin and Heather S. at our home and reception. They helped me more than they will ever know! I wish I had all of our reception pictures back from our photog, but as a wedding photographer
myself, I know that these things take time! Here are some from her sneaky peaky though:
So now that the festivities are over for the most part (after all, we still have our honeymoon next weekend) it is nice to settle into marriage.

We are enjoying not having to plan a time to see one another. After all, I know he'll be home eventually. ;)

What is your favorite part about being married? Or your favorite part of not being married?

The now Mrs. Coons
