Things I have learned in the first month of marriage:

-Square neck garments are the way to go. The silky kind especially.
-I become very loving and caring in my sleep. I always end up cuddling up right next Greg and I have been known to pat him on the cheek and as if he is ok/ask him what he's thinking about, all while dead asleep
-I only know how to make approximately 10 meals
-I have no friends
-Don't throw raw egg or raw chicken in the trash and leave it there for a couple days
-It's going to take awhile to get used to this new last name
-I like our married ward much better than any single ward I've been in. There are less people trying to call attention to themselves and people actually prepare their lessons
-Maybe we should have gotten all sports passes, cuz mooching off our friends' tvs for every major sporting event is going to get old really fast
- I say the phrase "Ugh that makes me want to vomit. Seriously, I want to throw up" all the time, about anything that slightly grosses me out. Drama queen?
-Hundreds of dollars in target giftcards can actually disappear pretty quickly
-Greg is just as awesome as I ever thought
-We actually live approximately 7 blocks from the Tanner Building, slightly more than the 4 blocks I originally thought it was
-I have zero sense for decorating
-I don't like the birth control pill
-There is nothing wrong with going to bed at 10 every night, or even earlier


  1. Megan! I would LOVE to cook with you! See, I do know how to cook! And this would help you with the no friends thing, assuming that you want people around (although there's a good chance you like living alone in your married bliss). But really! I'm trying to teach Blake how to cook, too. Let me know. Because I would seriously love to. Seriously.

  2. I came to a lot of those conclusions too my first month of marriage. It's super awesome, but there are definitely a lot of changes you have to get used to.

  3. Regarding BC, which one are you on? If you're having side effects you don't like, you might want to talk to a doctor about switching. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out just the right mix of estrogen and progesterone for you.
