He's Moving In!

{Instagram: @mishlove}

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it has finally happened.

I am officially living with a BOY.

The Dizzle is finishing moving his things into my place as we speak.

I've never done this before! I mean, not officially, at least.
He's never done it before either.

So, this is kind of a big deal, right?

For the moment, we're still with my current Roomie until the end of October.
So it's not quite just us, yet.

After October 31st, well, those plans I'll save for another post.

But for now, I felt the need to document this day.
I'm very excited and there's no one else I'd rather share my bed with than him.
{I mean, we should hope so. Because if there were, then we might have problems.}

...

So.....Any tips or advice on living with the opposite sex?? ;)

xoxo

  2. Two bathrooms. I peed in the sink the other day because Jesse was taking a year and a day on the toilet. Not my finest moment but it was either that, or in my pants, or in a piece of Tupperware. We always had two bathrooms prior to this place. It's managable having only once...if you're ok with peeing in the sink. And yes. My dogs watched it all go down. And Jesse was grossed out and semi-pissed off. But girl gotsta go, yo!

  3. Congrats! There are great memories ahead living together -but also some I want to pull my hair out and go hide in a hole away from him times too. Danny and I moved across the state together and moved in all at the same time, so we were on edge the first 3-4 months. But now all the kinks and my OCD has come to an end. You learn to adjust to each others habits that you arent use to. When I come to the realization that some of those habits no matter how much I asked him to work on, they were not going away, you just learn to come up with a solution yourself to keep your sanity. It's all about compromise. At the end of the day, who really cares if he's not using a coaster, replacing the toilet paper roll or doing his dishes. Id do it all over again, fights and all. Because if it's meant to be, you'll get thru any obstacle. Good luck and enjoy it! Living with your best friend is pretty amazing.

  4. Oh my goodness!! Fun!! I never lived with someone I dated but living with a man is def different! Make sure you first establish if/what chores he will do. Hopefully he is one that puts the toilet seat down...lol. My Hubby is still working on that one! Have fun :)

  7. This is huge!!!! Congrats girl!! Can I put enough exclamation points to express how excited I am for you?? Probably not.

  8. Woooo! Congrats! I'm so happy for the two of you. It sure isn't easy living with a boy. The worst for me was when I cleaned everything until it was spotless and as soon as he came home from work, he'd drop his dirty clothes all over the floor. I mean, c'mon! I just picked up everything. Other than that, it's really nice to wake up next to your honey. :)

    Best of luck!

    xo, Adriana.

  9. Congrats! My biggest piece of advice is to both be patient with each other.

    ReplyDelete
  10. YAY!! Congratulations!! That is so exciting. :) I am trying to think of advice, but I really can't think of any. As long as you can both laugh at each other when you have a ridiculous argument over dishes in the sink or how to fold the towels and crap like that, you'll be fine.

  11. Congrats that is really exciting!!!! :)

  12. Congrats!
    Just make sure to keep your girl time. Also, be patient. It is definitely an adjustment but I know you will have a great time!

  13. Congrats girl! Advice: be patient and you gotta train them to clean up after themselves Atleast a little. You will soon be cleaning his mess after shaving and folding boxers :)
    Can't wait to hear about all the adventures to come!

  14. if your opposite sex is anything like my opposite sex, then girl, it'll be a cake walk. zack is, like, THE most easy-going guy EVER, aka easy to live with aka also is really clean which works wonderfully! i would say just be aware of the whole leaves-the-toilet-seat-up thing which some guys have issues with. ha.
    this is exciting!!

  15. Aaaawwwwww congrats!!!!!!!!!! that's sooo exciting! Can't wait to see the to come later post! :)

  17. How fun! The bf and I lived together for about 9 months until our work situations required that we live apart.

    First off, it is totally different than staying over at each others apartments! It is now both of your space instead of just your place or his place so establishing who will do what is important. Thankfully my bf is super clean so I never had to worry about that kind of stuff, it was more about working out how to share the responsibility since we both were used to cleaning our own apartments and what not. It's also fun to see little quirks that you may not have noticed just staying over with each other. =)

    I'm excited to hear about you guys adjust to this new phase in life. =) I'm sure there will be plenty more funny stories to tell!

  18. Oh this makes me so happy! And advice? Craig and I have lived together for two years now, and my biggest piece of advice is to maintain your own social life. It's easy to go and do everything together, but it makes your time out more special when you've been out doing your own thing with your friends :)

  19. Congratulations!! Soooooo exciting!! I never lived with Adrian before we got married but I think people try to scare you sometimes. It wasn't such a huge adjustment for us. My biggest pet peeve is that he never puts the tin foil back where it goes. My thought is that if that's our biggest living issue, we're doing pretty well. Enjoy it!!! And may he always put the tin foil away. For your sake, really. :)

  20. Patience! It really takes time to adjust! Good luck! :-)

  21. Congrats! That's a big deal! Advice hmmmm....keep your personal time too so you don't get sick of each other! My husband and I have days that he's watching soccer in the living room and I'm in the bedroom watching a girly movie. Just because you're both home doesn't mean you always have to be hanging out. It's good to keep your space.

  22. Just remember....the only person you can change is yourself. It's all good when you're with the one you love :) So happy for you, Honey.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yay! Super exciting! I still remember that feeling...although it didn't end up being/feeling very different since we were so used to being at each others' places most nights. Super exciting though! What a fun time!

  24. How exciting and a great next step. Advice? Patience. Husband still isn't quite familiar with the hamper... it's very foreign to him. I think he thinks it's a basketball hoop except he never picks up the clothes when it doesn't go in. It goes on top, half way in... mostly around it, but never quite in it. Yeah... patience is my biggest advice.

  25. Well I think this is just great. My advice? Stock up on alcohol and get a Netflix subscription. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST LIFETIME SLUMBER PARTY EVER!

  27. This is super exciting. I hope you document and blog the shit out of it because i'm taking the same plunge in a month and a half and im pretty nervous - NO idea what to expect.

    and i have to add that you are the most beautiful couple ever aha.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh you got this!! You Guys sound like such a great team.. Now the real question is can I come over for dinner and drinks?? V-dizzle cooks we drink?? Ehh?

  29. Break the ice quick and piss with the door open.

  30. Oh and in any happy healthy relationship you dont "train" the other. You'll have your differences but that's why you love eachother. You won't like everything but hey that's life. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh how exciting! Congrats! I moved in with my boyfriend last year and it was a really great experience! It is full of surprises and it will challenge your patience for sure haha but its really great. Good luck!

  32. Tip 1: Once he gets comfortable, his favorite place for dirty clothes will be on the floor, usually next to the hamper. No matter how many times you complain, he will keep doing it, so let it go.
    Tip 2: Toilet seat will always be up. Also dont complain. Just dont fall in.
    Tip 3: Pee in front of each other, but never ever poop in front of each other. Ever.
    Tip 4: Just get married already cuz you are the hottest couple ever and would make cutie tan Korean babies and I'd adopt one from you. Sound good?

  33. definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY choose your battles. When my boyfriend and I first moved in together, every little thing he left in a place that I thought it didn't belong got me so mad. It could be that I'm slightly OCD, but I learned to not argue with him about every little thing.

  34. I lived with a guy for 5 years and it was awesome. We were just friends though. Really, just friends because he became like a brother after so long. I lived with girls before and it never worked out. Guys aren't much dirtier either and they keep to themselves. Mostly.

  36. how fantastic! Living with a manfriend is wonderful. So long as he is willing to help out with the cleaning and cooking ;)

  37. I semi sorta lived with Rob for 3 years and I loved every minute of it. Just be honest about what's important to you (even if it's as crazy as having an extra roll of toilet paper hanging out near the toilet JUST IN CASE) because those little things matter. I mean in the end, you're both going to change a little to fit each other but being honest from the beginning will be the best way to move in the same direction.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Definitely talk about what you expect...like who's going to do certain chores, etc. If you both just assume things about the other, it won't turn out good!

    ReplyDelete
  39. so exciting! it's a whole different level of "intimacy"... but it's fabulous! until you want to huff and puff about something and can't leave or kick him out. just sayin'

  40. 1. Keep some things a mystery (ie. pooping, peeing, nose picking, period stuff, flossing).
    2. Never stop complimenting each other and/or flirting w/ each other.
    3. Have your personal space/time/friends
    4. Communicate
    5. Compromise

  41. Living with my now husband before we got married/engaged was a great decision. Neither one of us had lived with a boyfriend/girlfriend before so it was a bit of a learning curve, but in the end everything worked out. Two bathrooms if possible, and learning to compromise are my biggest pieces of advice. Oh, and wine solves everything! Congratulations to you and the Dizzle on this big step!

  42. Aw, congrats! Advice - learn to compromise.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I saw this on Instagram before I got to read your post and I am so excited for the both of you! My piece of advice, is to let live, go with the flow and remain flexible. Both of you have your own routines and it will take some adjustment but enjoy the time together. Currently my husband is living 5 hours away until he moves here and despite the typical marital arguments, I so wish he was here with me. :)

  44. Definitely congrats! I only lived with my now hubby too :) The key to living with the opposite sex is to not treat him any less than your best friend or roommate. You are NOT his mom, so don't treat him as such. Would you want him bossing you around or telling you where to put your stuff? No? Then don't do it to him. I learned to let the fact that he leaves a small pile of clothes in the corner, the cups that he forgets to put in the sink, and the dirt that he trudges in slide, and life is grand! You guys will do great!

  45. Yay! I love you guys together. It's awesome.

    Know this...your version of clean and his version of clean are two entirely different things. Also, don't tell him not to eat in bed because he won't listen, and chances are you'll eat in bed with him. He will swear up, down, and all around that he won't get crumbs in the sheets BUT HE WILL. It will be ok. You'll just have to wash them more often. If he takes the garbage out or does the dishes without being asked, marry him immediately. Those are few and far between, and they make the best husbands. Also, don't be alarmed when you look in his closet and find that every article of clothing is piled on the floor. Men don't always understand the thrilling concept of hangers. Just make him iron his own shirts before work.
