a week ago, i got me a husband.

in just a few hours this time last week in fact.

fittingly, our marriage license came in the post today...

my husband went to north carolina for the day to spend some time with his (our) adorable niece and nephew. he'll be back later this evening and i'm going to surprise him with this:

our first Christmas tree together! i told him i wanted a pink or silver tree to which he made faces. he's lucky Target didn't have one in a bigger size! i'm in love with our first little christmas tree.

p.s. i'm off to have dinner with his parents (it's pizza night!). His papa called to make sure i'd still be coming over since max is not going to be there and when i answered the phone he said, "hello mrs. maxham!" i love it. i adore my in-laws!

aw beautiful tree! and isn't "husband" the strangest thing to say?! i still accidentally call dannon my boyfriend all the time. that's what we get for having a super short engagement i guess. :)

Too CUTE. You're tree looks so pretty. I love that you have sweet wonderful in-laws. Dan and I just decorated our first tree together. We're about to have our 5 wedding anniversary but we've always been out of town for the holidays. Looking back, I wish we put one up every year (like you). Happy Weekend Dearie.

Didn't I leave a message here already? I thought so, but I was at school and that computer is sometimes a bit tempermental...

So, just in case my first message never got through: Happy, Happy One-Week Anniversary to the pretty new bride and her dashing husband!

Your hubby is going to be so happy to see your surprise tree, how cute! This first Christmas will be one you will always remember. Congrats again on gettin' you a husband. I wish you both the very best! :-)

Medical Librarian said...

I'm jealous--that's a truly gorgeous marriage certificate. The one we have from the State of Nebraska is really plain and boring. :(

Love your pretty tree, too. Hope Max was happily surprised.
