A thief in the night.

A couple nights ago, as I was dreaming of unicorns eating flowers under a rainbow of butterflies, a large, rough hand grabbed my shoulder with such force that I abruptly awoke. My eyes shot open in fear and my instincts kicked in. My fists began to fly and I was fending off the villain with extreme force. Suddenly I heard a whimper to my right. My poor, sleeping husband was being attacked by none other than me while all he wanted was me to stay close to him.

I've been asked a few times what is the biggest adjustment to being married. Welp, one of the hardest things about being married is sharing my bed with another person. And I think that's the problem -- I brought my bed, that I've had for probably 8 years, to our apartment. I'm still in that mindset that it's my bed and I can lay wherever I darn-well please. Therefore, my poor, unsuspecting husband is unprepared for the fury that lies within these sleepy fists. And believe me, your don't want to be on the wrong side of these fists in the middle of the night when I think I'm being kidnapped by a masked murderer.

Lucky for me, he still loves me a little.


  1. Ha ha I love these pictures! yeah I think the hardest part for me was sharing my bed also...and everything else in my house!!! I never realized how selfish I was until I got married...and don't' even get be started about having to share holidays!! ha ha you two are adorable

  2. I have to agree. It was so weird finally sharing a bed with someone else! We both had to get adjusted. In the early months, my husband would roll over and fling his arm across the bed, usually smacking me in the face. I learned to sleep with my back to him! Ha ha!

  3. That made me laugh! I definitely think sharing a bed is the hardest part about being married. My husband's tried to push me off the bed in his sleep! I guess he just felt like he needed more space??

  4. you are so adorable and are glowing!

    on our honeymoon, I woke up my husband on our KING SIZED hotel bed because I was laying across the whole bed width-wise, draped on him, and was pushing him off the bed in my sleep. every time we have slept in a king-size bed we've had a similar issue with me...

    I feel your pain.
