So, we celebrated our one month anniversary last week, which inspired the idea for this series. We hope that this will, in a humorous way, keep everyone up to date on how things are going down here in Pensacola, assure our friends that we have lives, and document the life stages of our marriage. Like a baby. After all, we don't have a baby (and won't anytime soon, so don't get your hopes up Mom!) or a puppy, so this is the only thing we have to update people on in infuriating detail... Also, I hope one day we will read way back in this blog, see this post, and be like Remember when we used to eat omelets every. single. day? Oh yea...then we got jobs.  So here goes! 

Richey One Month Update

Favorite Meals: Turkey Sandwiches, Tuna Melts, Onion and Mushroom Cheddar Omelettes, Roast Chicken, Chicken Milanese (from this cookbook. Insane. )

Favorite Words: Adventure, Emily's Job, Funemployment, Plane, Solo, Hutch (we need one like thisbut probably not in teal...)

Favorite Snacks: Pistachios, Smoky Edamame Hummus (recipe coming soon!), and greek yogurt

Favorite TV Show: "The West Wing." We are addicted! Love how quick the dialogue is, and taking in the fact that we are debating the same issues today that we were in 1998. Nothing changes.

Favorite Game: Settlers of Catan. Never heard of it? Neither had we until three weeks ago. Now we are completely addicted. 

Currently Reading: John is hooked on the Hunger Games, and is reading Catching Fire. I am so jealous of this being his first time! I am trudging through the first installment of William Manchester's biography of Winston Churchill, The Last Lion: Visions of Glory, 1874-1932While it is slow going, I am growing quite fond of the little boy who was Winston Churchill, and am definitely enjoying it. 

Meanwhile In Pensacola: Last week we were hit by a very unseasonable bout of cold weather, and were amazed at the panic that ensued. All of Pensacola was shut down for three days because temps dropped below freezing, and there was a night of wintry mix. While we appreciated the excuse to drink the hot chocolate we impulsively bought at Publix a few weeks ago (because there was a two for one deal) we also thought it was a bit ridiculous. Yes we are Yankees. And yes we are cynical...but working on it!

Finally: John soloed his first flight! And I got my first freelance editing job!

Anyhoo, more updates to come soon! How bout them Broncos? I mean...
