Keys = In Hand!


That’s right! We officially got the keys to our first place today, and the U-Haul truck is ready for pickup bright and early Thursday morning. We’ll take a few boxes over between now and then, but most of the heavy lifting (literally) will be done on Thursday. SO EXCITED!!

So, for those of you who have lived with boys/men before – what should I expect? Neither of us has ever lived with someone of the opposite sex, so this should be VERY interesting…


About Brittney

Being born and raised in Texas and attending the University of Texas, there were two things in life of which I was ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN: 1. That I would never leave Texas and 2. That I would NEVER date a Sooner. Boy was I wrong!

  1. If you want things accomplished around the home, make check-lists. They like the sense of accomplishment in completing tasks you give them, and it removes the potential for continuous nagging from the wife that they hate :) Plus, it’s a great training tool!

    • We have a white board list of whatever I need his help with that week. I’d say 95% of it gets done. (About every 3 or 4 months there seems to be something that I write up there weekly like “put suitcases in attic” that isn’t REALLY necessary for our survival and never gets done…at that point I usually just give up because honestly, some battles aren’t worth it.) On the same note, expect some shock on each other’s OCD tendencies.I can almost promise you’ll disagree on how to load the dishwasher. Good luck!

      • I’m not going to lie – we have the dishwasher discussion EVERY TIME THE DISHES ARE DONE! Now it’s just comical.

  2. Also, keep on doing the considerate things for each other that you’re doing now. It means that much more when it’s not only your significant other doing something nice, but also your roommate.

  3. It’s definitely going to be an adventure, to say the least. Just wait til you are brushing your teeth one morning & he walks in the bathroom & starts peeing.. lol, I freaked out, but that’s when I knew it was real. You are going to find out little things he does that bother you & vice versa, lol. You’ll realize that you both my have a “come home from work” ritual or a “saturday morning” ritual, that the other will either join you or ignore you, lol. He’s going to do things like take his shoes off & leave them in that exact spot, which later you’ll end up tripping over them.. lol. You fix your hair & leave your flat iron on the bathroom counter to cool off & to him thats clutter.. lol. He doesn’t rinse out his glass before he puts it in the sink, leaving a tea stain.. ugh, so annoying.. lol. Of course, there may be a billion things that urk you & there may be none. These are just my experiences, all couples are different. You may not have any issues at all! I wish you all the best & hopefully a smooth transition!

  4. You will probably have your first fight as a married couple over something ridiculous like leaving clean clothes on the couch “too long”, or loading the dishwasher “wrong”, you know, really important stuff like that. ;) Don’t worry, it will be funny later. Just remember there is more than one way to do something, and let the other person do it his (or her) way. Also, nagging doesn’t work, it just frustrates the nagger. And the naggee.
