nesting

It's happening. I'm turning into a wife. Two years ago, I didn't know how to do laundry, make a good grilled cheese, or keep a check registry! (roll your eyes) I know...it's different now! I am still no master chef, but can make a decent dinner for my fiance and some fierce chocolate chip cookies! My laundry skills have improved tremendously with lesser shrunken clothes (lesser not absent) and whites stay white! yay!

My improvement has always been voluntary ofcourse, as I want to provide a beautiful and comfortable home for my family, but it all used to require a significant amount of effort on my part. My laziness proved to be quite a challenge.

What is so strange about the past few weeks, is that I have been Housewife Extraoridinaire! Keeping up with the house, cooking, baking, cleaning, decorating! and I've done it without forced effort! JR noticed it the other day, and asked if I was okay :) haha! He has been pleasantly surprised and told me he would have let me put up the Christmas decorations in July had he known the domestic skills they bring out in me!!

I find it so strange how life prepares you for what's next. It's as if the last two years my domestic ways have been brewing, and poof! just in time for our wedding I feel the need to nest and be "wifey" and sweet, although I am and always was real sweet :) wait til JR reads that!! ha! He may have an opposing comment for that last bit! fair enough...

So I simply wanted to share this whole new world I'm living in, and I must say I am rather proud of myself. It's fun! I have always been the nurturing one, but only had my animals to provide for. (That's why I've had 3,457 pets) Next will be my husband :) Looks like I'm getting started!!

I'm so proud! The days of burnt spaghetti/mac and cheese are behind you:-) Now once you're married you will be ready to have a baby... right away... that I can spoil rotten. Yes, that's a great plan! Love you!
