In four days, I will have been married to Lucas for two months.  To be quite honest, I was terrified to become a WIFE.  Yes, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of forever with Lucas, and that I wanted to spend all of my free time with him, but there was something very ominous about the title "wife." I have never been much of a cook, I am incredibly messy, I like to buy junk food and watch movies late at night.... and I just couldn't see myself being a wife.  

I'm pleased to announce that house-wivery is becoming easier as the days tick on.  I don't know why, but by having a new apartment where everything inside of it is mine, I want my apartment to be clean! I always think to myself, "what if this friend came over to see our apartment for the first time, and it was a mess? I MUST CLEAN!" So I find myself doing my dishes after I eat, cleaning the living room a million times a day, and even - if you can believe it - putting away my clothes after I wear them. THE MADNESS! 

As far as cooking goes, it is an ongoing adventure.  Sometimes I cook meals and pronounce "I am a freaking awesome cook!" while other times I make meals and tell Lucas, "You don't have to eat it... really, you don't."  there have been a few cooking highlights since we have been married.  The other day, spur of the moment, I made lemon chicken that was to die for.  Yesterday, I made homemade cookies and cream ice-cream (that I am eating right now.  Tell me, is 10am too early for a bowl of ice-cream?) Let's see... oh ya, I made this AWESOME Caribbean Jerk Chicken.  Seriously, if you want the recipe, I will be more than happy to give it to you, as all should partake in this chicken. 

All in all, house-wivery isn't all that bad.  I guess it helps that I am madly in love with my husband, and doing things like cleaning and cooking and massages are just many ways that I like to show him that I love him. Now the real question... what to cook for tonight?

Now, that makes a girl feel good!

So I logged into blogger today, and it sure has changed since I started blogging.  Did you know they have a STATS TRACKER?? I get excited because my page has had 3500 views.  Like, really excited.  (Yes, in the back of my mind, I realize that my mom and sister probably make up 2700 of those views, but still.) 

So I was just clicking around, noticing that on my highest day I got 6 views in one day! Just think, half a dozen people that day thought about me enough to want to see how I was doing. Now, that makes a girl feel good!

I have to say, my favorite stat was about how people found me.  About 90% or so just googled my blog name, but there was one instance where someone found my blog by searching "do they have knee high socks at Fred Meyer?" confused? Go here: It was a proud moment.

P.S. I'm still not well enough acquainted with blogger to know how to post an actual shortcut to other blog posts of mine.  I actually had to google "do they have knee high socks at Fred Meyer to find the above blog post, which, sadly, is going to skew my stats.  Sigh, what I do for you, dear readers.
