Hobbies and such

Today Josh and I were talking about Christmas. Basically, here is our convo:

Josh: So what do you want to do for Christmas gifts this year?

Lindsey: Um, we already have so much - we could just get eachother one gift

Josh: Well you're really hard to shop for

Lindsey: Why is that?

Josh: Um, you like to bake, but I don't want to get you baking stuff and you dont really have any other hobbies and you dont really do crafts that much.....

Lindsey: SO basically I am really boring and you are wondering why you married me?

Josh: Kind of.

Ok, I made up the last part but Josh definitely accused me of never being crafty AND having no hobbies! I know. Mean.

It's true though. I dont know what happened to me. I used to do things like blog and take pictures and practice my viola and scrapbook ( I mean I actually scrapbooked, it wasn't just something I wrote in my facebook profile) But lately I have just spent my days planning a wedding and moving and scouring home decorating blogs.


Anyways, I am excited because I told Josh I want him to buy me a used keyboard off of craigslist for Christmas.

I don't know how far I will get in my piano playing endeavors but when I was ten I taught myself Canon in I already know one song.

I don't expect to be the next beethoven or even really to play anywhere...but I really love music and it's annoying that I can't create it or at least mimic the music other people create.

Josh is hopefully going to get a guitar for Christmas. The difference here is that Josh actually knows how to play real music and sounds pretty amazing and has an awesome voice ( I personally think he could be on American Idol and I would be the wife waiting outside the audition doors and jump into his arms when he came out with a yellow ticket to Hollywood..ok, I've dreamed about this a time or two...)

Basically we are one set of curtains turned pantsuits away from becoming the Von Trapps.

I am pretty excited.

Oh and posting things to your blog is scary. I feel like in 6 months people may be like "so, have you composed anything yet?" And I'll be like "Um no....but I can play mary had a little lamb with my eyes closed."

Yep - they day has come and gone and we are officially Mr. and Mrs. Stamm. So far, so good:) We had an awesome wedding, I spent most of it not breathing very well in my dress...but hey, pain is beauty.

Right now I am loving being a wife. I am only 6 days into it, but today I got to stay home and clean and organize and I loved it. Josh is watching Star Trek right now which gives me the perfect opportunity to just post a brief update.

I want to upload a facebook album of our wedding day, but its not working. Boo.
Well, here is a list of awesome moments from the last week.
* Dragging my dress thru the dirt in order to get the perfect picture. Totally worth it. After all, the dress is only seen for a few hours but the pictures are forever!
* Seeing my studly groom for the first time. Hot stuff.
* Getting to the Biltmore for our first night! Everyone in the Lobby stared at us and let us move to the front of the line. It was awesome!!
* Dancing with my nephews at my reception.
* Um, awkwardly having to return car keys to Matt and Jen on Saturday. I don't know you just dont want to see your boss/pastor/in laws the morning after your wedding especially if your hair is all messy and your false eyelashes are falling off....Jen, you know I love you!
Alright. Feeling guilty about joshy watchinhg a movie al by himself (although it is Star Trek....) I'll write more later:)
