Story of our lives, right? Being broke newlyweds is something we struggled with for a while. We cut down like crazy on the amount of "going out" that we did. We cut down A LOT! Because when the cost of living keeps going up, and our salary stays the same.... well... it's hard! Plain and simple. It's frustrating. It's straining. It takes a toll on relationships. Big time! But we cut down on going out on dates... we got creative with our "stay-at-home" dates, and we just managed! Sure, sometimes it makes me want to rip my hair out of my head... but then I remember what is most important: Our love. Our marriage. Our happiness. Our relationship. Our family. Our friends. That's it. =)
So there you have it.
Three of our hardest "moments".

|Us with The Fox Hill Inn behind us, on the day we saved our date!|
|We added blue and pink ribbons (our wedding colors) to jazz it up a bit!|
|My Aunt even made them for us after the wedding... so I have proof that the recipe is pretty darn good!!|
|Of course, we had to have a little fun the night we made them!|

Scott & I got up way too early for a Sunday.
We made an 8am Home Depot run to buy some chalkboard paint,
and then we painted some wine bottles we had saved up for this project.
This is a great DIY project for under $10!
(We had a glass of wine at 9am to help free up another wine bottle we used,
don't judge! haha)
We used 2 coats of chalkboard paint on each bottle.
Make sure (if you do this) that you wait until the first coat completely dries,
or else the paint starts peeling off when you put then second coat on.
Also-- save the corks... they will be helpful to help spin the bottle around as you paint!
Less messy that way!
Here is the ending product:
Eventually, it will be put in our kitchen! I think it will make a great conversation piece!
Sunday afternoon, we drove to my parents house to celebrate 3 birthdays,
as well as our 1st anniversary... even though it's not until the 16th!
It was a gorgeous day for an outside BBQ.
We brought our defrosted cake topper with us & decided to slice & eat it
since we will not be around for our actual anniversary.
To our surprise, it tasted pretty good & did not taste like styrofoam!!
