Gone With the Wind

Kyle and I have recently joined the Netflix craze. I usually don't care what movie Kyle picks because we only have time to watch movies together on the weekend... which means I will sleep through the entire movie. However, in an attempt to watch each other's favorites (Kyle's being the Godfather... which I did watch... even though it took 3 times of starting and stopping due to my inability to stay awake), Kyle rented Gone With the Wind.

First off, I didn't ask Kyle to rent this, so this is Kyle being romantic. You see, I am currently reading Gone With the Wind for the second time. It has to be my favorite book. But, as it always goes, the movie is not nearly as good as the book. The movie is great, but the book version of Scarlett O'Hara rocks! She is such a rebel (no pun intended), but she has such a good heart. Throughout the whole book she acts so hard and tough, but then there are those moments that make her so lovable and real. Quite frankly my dear, I love her.

So, we will see how our quest to conquer Gone With the Wind goes this weekend. We make no promises to get through it... it is a two disc movie after all, and we have to make a little trip to College Station to watch the Aggies b.t.h.o. Texas Tech and attend our favorite little person's 2nd birthday!

Although I am horrible with change, marrying Kyle has been the easiest transition of my life. Towards the end of our engagement I was worried about how I would do leaving my mom and my siblings. However, it has been perfect. Really, since Kyle and I got engaged, everything has just gone so smoothly. From our engagement to wedding plan, I have lived a fairy tale... just ask my mom.

Everyone always says that the first year of marriage is the hardest. I know we have only been married for 3 1/2 months, but Kyle and I have never gotten along better than we do now. After 2 years of going back and forth from his apartment and my parents house, we have loved being settled in together. Side note: he recently started having ice water ready for me when I get home from coaching. Is he really that sweet, or do I already have him trained? haha... maybe both.

Here is a brief list of our favorite things to do since we have been married...

  • Cooking- Many successful meals with a handful of "I can't believe he actually finished that."
  • Chocolate Bar- He gives in and takes me when I start to whine.
  • Netflix- It has made us perfectly lazy, but what more could you ask for when you have been gone at work all day.
  • Bailey- We live behind a beautiful neighborhood that we love to walk her at... getting her to not poop in front of these mansions has been quite entertaining.
  • First Methodist- We recently joined our church, and we are trying to get involved. Kyle just joined the Christmas choir. lol.
  • Family- Miss them. Love them. Still see them lots.
