I’ve been thinking about his statement ever sense. And it’s true, our marriage consists mostly of two best friends having as much fun as possible while juggling grown up responsibilities. Every Saturday night, it’s pizza, a movie, and vegging out for the evening. We take late night trips to walmart sometimes, just to walk around and window shop. We go all out and have a blast celebrating what we deem to be the best holidays (Valentines, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the best, Christmas). We went on a 2800 mile road trip this year that was awesome. We had our snackies, the radio, and plenty of good (and strange) conversation. Although we have fun almost all the time, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes we’re snarky and snappy at each other, sometimes we need a little bit of space. Usually one of us needs a nap (raise your hand if you get grumpy and unreasonable when you’re tired?!). People at weddings always give the craziest advice, like don’t go to bed angry. I’m sorry, but I do go to bed angry sometimes. The next day I almost always wake up totally fine, and the only reason I was angry, was because I was exhausted. If you want real advice, it’s be a kid, and have fun. That means even if the budget is tight, get a frozen pizza and a redbox. Think about what you could do for your spouse that would brighten their day, like a king size kitkat or some homemade cookies. Ask your little snookums out on a date, have a water gun fight, take an impromptu road trip and sing a little too loud. Life gets serious, and to be frank, it can get really hard. Don’t let that stop you from making your cat do the Macarena to give your honey something to smile about.
