It's the same as it was...

Me. They should make peanut butter pretzels but with chocolate inside instead of peanut butter.
Him. Then they would just be inside-out Flipz.
Me. Oh my gosh, they'd be Flipped Flipz!!!
Him. See, this is why we don't let you talk.
Me. *laughs for 5 minutes*

Things I love today

I realize that I am way overdue for an update on my life, new marriage, honeymoon, etc. But for now- here's Etsy items that make me happy.

I love that everytime my honey does something impressive in a video game he looks at me to see if I was watching. I never am but I'm still glad he does it.

A place to be.

Waking up by myself, wrapped up and warm in a cold cabin, I think "I'm just gonna lay here and let the day come to me." Enter Wilson. A quick nuzzle with his wet nose and then a search for the best spot to take an early morning nap. One of the best things about Wilson- he doesn't hover, he just loves. There's something to be said for loneliness. There's something magical about silence and cold and stillness.

Just a Saturday morning in the woods. No list of errands, nobody to keep happy, no wedding to plan. Nothing to do but find pictures and shapes in the pine boughs against the foggy sky.

On friendship.

Me. It's a bummer that your friend Escolante won't be here for the wedding.
Him. Ya.
Me. When does he get back from Afghanistan?
Him. A couple months.
Me. Do you miss him?
Him. Of course not! That's not manly.
Me. ...I really can't figure out a better way to say it.
Him. Let's just say I would prefer if he were not gone.

He just gets me.

Me. Taking your bra off is the greatest feeling ever.
Him. Better than taking your socks off?
Me. Better than taking your socks off and then flipping your pillow to the cold side.
Him. Whoa.

A lesson in marriage

Me. You know the key to a successful marriage is compromise.
Him. We're pretty good at that.
Me. No we don't compromise- we barter.
Him. They're the same thing.
Me. No they're not.
Him. Ok give me an example.
Me. Well ok let me think..... all right. Say I want to spend all day at the fair and you do not. A COMPROMISE would be if I say, "Ok well how bout we spend an hour or two at the fair and then go out to dinner at your favorite restaurant. Then we'll both be happy." A BARTER is if you say, "We can spend all day to the fair BUT I get to go fishing all day tomorrow."
Him. So it's a compromise when you say it and it's a barter when I say it?
Me. Those were completely different!
Him. They were just worded differently. The first one was nice and the second one wasn't.
Me. Ok different example! Let's say there's a 2 miles between our houses. A COMPROMISE would be us both walking a mile and meeting in the middle. A BARTER would be me walking the 2 miles and then you giving me a present when I got to your house. 
Him. Or you walk it one day and I walk it the next.
Me. I don't think you would agree to walk the 2 miles, I think I'd have to do it.
Him. That's just cause you suck at bartering.
Me. That's why we should switch to compromising.
