The Pot Roast.

Last night I decided to make dinner.  This in itself is noteworthy because I've cooked like 18 times in the nearly two years since we've been married. (I guess that's what being a full-time student and working 40 hours a week will do to you.)  I was really excited because Blake would be home late and I could surprise him.  I decided last minute to make a pot roast.  Guess what I learned? Don't decide last minute to make a pot roast.  It won't work.  It will not cook in time.  Luckily, (for me, not for Blake) Blake's test took him a lot longer than he expected and he came home an hour later than he thought.  

One semi-cooked pot roast, mashed potatoes, peas, and edamame (Why? Because we had some in the fridge) meal later, it wasn't a complete failure, but still a little rough.  The moral of the story: Cooking is lame, and it takes forever, but I'm actually really looking forward to the day when I'm graduated and have time to really try, and hopefully improve my cooking skills. Good thing I married a rockstar who cooks like 4-5 nights a week.  Blake is a champ. Reason #435798473 why I love him.

A few days ago I was walking with Blake on campus.  I said something jokingly and Blake said sarcastically:

Blake: "Jeefers, Michelle! Really?"
Me: (pausing, then slowly looking at him) "What did you say?"
Blake: "What, Jeefers?"
Me: "Jeefers, what is Jeefers? Where did you even hear that?"
Blake totally confused why this is funny.
Me: "Jeefers, although very creative, is a word that you concocted out of your own brain. Did you mean Jeepers?"
Blake: "Ok the joke is dead now."
Me: "Were you just watching Scooby-Doo one time, and then decided to put your own spin on 'Jeepers?'"
Blake: "Seriously, joke dead."

Blake is hilarious.  I really love every minute with him.  I can't believe we've almost been married 2 years. It feels like we got married a week ago. I'm really sad we won't be able to celebrate our 2 year anniversary together because I'll be in New York by then.  Hopefully since our first anniversary was so incredible (spent in Barcelona) it will kind of make up for it? (Let me believe that.)
