Newlywed Survival Guide

Happy Monday y’all!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty eventful! I am so happy that my Christmas shopping is ALMOST done! Fewwwhhh! It is such a great feeling! I mean, I love giving gifts, but goshhhh, sometimes thinking of what to get is sooooo toughhhh, it’s a mood killer, don’t you find?! Oh, and I finally got the CORRECT wedding date on my band(read more on this here)!

On Saturday, Justin and I decided to go to Juliette et Chocolat. It is a restaurant in Montreal, where you can get your chocolate fix, duh! Haha! Anyhow, while sipping on my delicious chai latte, I looked around to get in on some of the happiness and excitement. A couple of tables away from us, there were 4 teenagers: 2 boys and 2 girls. Right away, I noticed that one of the boys was looking shyly at a girl in front of him; I could tell that he liked her. And this made me think.

Since I was little, I’ve had so many crushes: in kindergarten, elementary school, high school, college, you name it! We (girls) are always on the look out for our prince charming. Then one day, you meet him. You don’t really think he is your prince charming, but you like him, and decide to give it a try, just because he gives you butterflies in the stomach. And then it happens: you fall in looooove! You fall in love sooooo hard that nothing even matters anymore: the lack of sleep or mad friends, whatever! After going out for a couple of years, an annoying thought starts bugging you: Is he going to propose? When is it going to happen? *Okay, stop denying it, we’ve all been there!* Then before you know it, the day comes, and the love of your life is standing on his knee. You cry, you laugh, and you FREAK OUT! Why? Because there is a huge wedding to plan! But you get over it, and your BIG day ends up being a huge success! When the honeymoon is over and you’re all tan and happy, all of a sudden, it comes to you… you’re stuck… STUCK FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! * So dramatic, eh?! Well, I tried! Haha!*

Okay, stop freaking out for a moment and let me tell you something: Don’t worry that much! There are actually a few good uses for your husbands!

They can give you a foot massage for free!!! *a definite bonus*
