One Month Down, Eternity to Go!


  Sascha and I have officially been at this whole marriage thing for a whole month, and what a crazy month it has been.

Here's what we've been up to:
  • Sascha went to band camp with the BYU Cougar Marching Band
  • Sascha started his classes, and his earliest one is 10am, which is fantastic because we get to sleep in
  • I got a job working as a nanny for a super awesome family
  • Sascha joined the turkey club by bowling 3 strikes in a row during his bowling class
  • I got a free game of bowling for getting 2 strikes in a row with the granny bowl at fatcatz
  • I've decided that Costa Vida is actually the greatest food. ever.
  • We survived our first trip to IKEA (and got an awesome futon out of it)
  • We finally got our records moved to our new ward, and I think we'll really like it there
  • Being called Sister Vogel at church is equal parts awesome and weird
  • Sascha played in an Ultimate Frisbee 3v3 tournament, and won the sky machine (who can jump the highest) for his height.
  • I was supposed to play on a 3v3 team for the frisbee wives, but got really sick the morning of
  • Altitude sickness has been kicking my butt (at least, that's what we think it is)
  • Sascha is playing on an intramural ultimate frisbee team that consists mostly of people from Georgia, called Peach Perfect 
  • We went to our first college football game, Sascha with the band and I in the student section
  • We've watched 2 seasons of the show Heroes and are close to being done with season 3

and because I just love bulleted lists, here are 3 things that we have each learned in our whopping one month of marriage.

  • I kiss better than I cook
  • You have to pick you battles, and most of them aren't worth fighting
  • Laughter truly is the best medicine, and I married the funniest man out there
  •  You can't just think about yourself anymore
  •  No matter how mad we are, we still love each other
  •  It's hard

and Bonus!! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the wedding! (and by some, I mean a lot)

I love this day, I love my husband, and I love my marriage.
This has been the greatest month of my life, and I can't wait for oh so many more.
