101 Days

As I was doing my summer countdown post on Monday, I realized that Duck Dude and I had been married 99 days!!! I texted him and he said, "Let's celebrate!!"  Which is exactly the response I was looking for! But now, it's two days later, so we have officially been married for 101 days!!! 

We've learned a whole bunch about each other these last 101 days. You see, living with a significant other is much different than living with a roommate. However, in some ways it's exactly like having a slumber party every single night!! 

Here are just a few things both of us have learned over these past 101 dalmations days. 

  • He washes his socks inside out and likes them folded together. I just lay matching pairs on top of each other. 
  • I will have a paper towel out the entire time I cook for my hands.. He's learned not to throw it away. 
  • He will sing the last word of every verse in the song about a second later.... and about an octave lower. 
  • I will leave hair..... everywhere. And earrings. And hair clips. And bobby pins.
  • He will eat a snack... even though dinner will be ready in 15 minutes. 
  • I will definitely always compile an assortment of glasses of water by the bed. 
  • He likes the top button of his polos buttoned while they hang dry.
  • I don't dry anything but my socks and underwear. (he learned this the hard way)
  • He will continue to complain about the amount of pillows on the couch. 
  • I can't wait to buy new ones for fall. 
  • He is the official chopper... mainly because he likes to use the knives.
  • I realllly do watch a lottt of crime shows.  
  • We will both fall asleep on the couch at night and wake up hours later.  
  • We are capable of packing in the same bag for a weekend trip. 
  • We like to try new recipes on a regular basis
Overall, we've realized even though we are learning and still learning, and I am not ever sure if that learning stops, we make a really good pair. Here's to many more 101 days. 


  1. Oh my goodness, your quircks are like reading a list of mine! lol Especially the paper towel and the glasses of water by the You look so happy on your photo. Love it!

    1. Oh my gosh! I'm not the only one who does this!? I just neeeed water and I prefer it to be ice cold water which leads to allll of the glasses!!
