Last night we had Gabe's company summer picnic. They had it at the Rhino's (soccer) game this year. It was fun-we sat in the suite area and dinner was catered by Famous Dave's-ribs, chicken, beans, slaw and corn muffins. Gabe's sister, her husband and the 2 kids came too so it was a lot of fun-and a great night to sit outside for it.
Today I did some running around. I actually lucked out at DSW and found a pair of brown shoes! I've been looking for a new pair for at least 2-3 years now. The ones I had are old-very scuffed up, etc. I just have very bad luck shoe shopping-everything I like is not in my size, or I find nothing I like or something. But today I lucked out-I debated between 3 pairs of shoes (I should have bought all of them to avoid this dilemma in the future) but ended up picking one to buy. So that made my day! I also ran to the mall and Aldi's. Then Gabe and I went for dinner at Salena's for dinner-it was pretty good! Great chips and salsa. Then we hit Weggies for our weekly grocery shopping and that's about it. I'm almost done with wedding thank you notes (yay!) so hopefully those will go out this week-at least mine will...Gabe is writing out his family/friends so he'll be sending them eventually...I got a head start on mine! So back to work tomorrow-yuck! The weekends just go too fast!

Anyways, married life is great-granted for us, not much changed except things are legal now. We've lived together for about 3 years already so really, it doesn't feel any different. Of course thats what everyone keeps asking now "so, how does it feel to be married?" No different honestly. It's weird calling him my husband and thinking of myself as a Mrs. now. I still don't know which name to sign since I have it changed for some things but not for others. Other than that, it doesn't feel like a major change took place at all.
So, how did we celebrate? Well, I worked a 10 hour day (ugh!) then came home and made us dinner which turned out pretty darn good! We tried a new pasta dish and it turned out tasty! Then we made up some brown ladies-drinks we've grown to love while on our honeymoon in Aruba. And we enjoyed a piece of cake from my shower back in April-we froze it and believe it or not, after 3 months it still tastes pretty good!

Since I'm exhausted from my long day, I'll be heading to bed soon and hopefully get a good night of sleep.
You're probably wondering about my blog name-"Nit"....well, my name is Nicole and our nephew (and most family) calls me Nik. Problem is, he has trouble saying the "k" sound so my name comes out "Aunt Nit". Hence the blog name. I thought it was cute and original myself :)
