In an effort to get a more active Newlywed board, we have decided to have a little introduction to all the newlyweds buzzing around the hive (and not so newlyweds too). So here we go:
I’m MissAsB. I live in Alabama now, was married in Colorado. My husband and I have been married just over 9 months now. We are currently renting our home in AL but we own a rental property back in CO. I am trying to get into baking more now that I am married but I don’t want to go overboard because I don’t want to gain a ton of weight! Currently, I am a full time grad student but I’m trying to find another job. As for the future? My husband and I are hoping that in the next year or so we decide where we want to live and will be able to sell our old house and buy a new one.
What about everyone else?

I am Mr. Bee. I live in Brooklyn with my wife Bee and my son, Charlie Bear. Oops, I mean Charlie Cole – we just call him Charlie Bear, because kids make you speak in baby talk and it’s disgustingly sweet but even I have gotten sucked in (but I can quit any time I want).
We’re not quite adjusted to life with a kid, but we’re trying to make it a point to go out somewhere fun and exciting twice a month. Because I am the hunter/gatherer in the relationship (not really), I’m trying to find fun stuff to do together… I’ll report back on how that goes!
Oh and the real reason I commented: I stickied the post for you guys. 🙂

Aww Charlie Bear! Of course you can quit the baby talk, it doesn’t have a hold on you! Good luck with finding the fun stuff. I need to work on that, but it’s hard to find fun free things!
And thanks for the stickie!

Hi. I’m Terry. Yrret is Terry spelled backwards. I live in Seattle but my heart remains in Philly because I was born and raised in the Philly suburbs. Seattle is ok. hehe
My wedding was 4 months ago in Philly, of course. (Nov. 28, 2009). I work full time as a scientist at a small biotech company. I’m also working on my masters in pharmacology. Oh, and a few weeks ago, I was selected to be a hostess. It’s great! It feeds my addiction to WB. lol
I’m a Philadelphia Eagles fan and a Penn State Alumni (’06). Go Eagles and Nittany lions!
Now that I’ve been married for 4 months, I’m getting used into the whole wife thing. Darling Husband and I are not ready for kids, now. We told each other that we will wait 2 year after the wedding to have kids. We already have names pick out. I have gotten that urge to have kids lately… but I need to remind myself to be patient.
We are going on our delayed honeymoon in April to Cancun. Can’t wait!
EDIT: Oh, my avatar there is my cute dog, Hershey. She’s a shar pei mix. I can see the wrinkles in her face. We named her Hershey because Darling Husband and I love the amusement park, Hershey park in Hershey, PA. (Had to name her something from the east coast.) I know she isn’t all brown but we figure that she has a chocolate head and a cookies and cream body. (She has brown and black spots on her body.) She loves me… ok… she is obsessed with me. She follows me around constantly, she’s like a shadow. My Darling Husband is jealous because he’s the dog person and I’m more of a cat person. He has asthma and is apparently more allergic to cats. His response when I asked him if I can get a cat? “Sure, you get your cat and I’ll get my dog and then my dog will eat your cat and then we’ll have both!” Yeah, he’s funny, isn’t he?

I’m JeniRae- been buzzing around the bee for a few years (!) now and don’t intend to leave. 🙂
I live and work and go to school in Pittsburgh, PA. I am a grad student in audiology and in my last academic semester (I have 3 clinical semesters after this). My husband is an engineer and is currently in Shanghai, China for work. We are parents to our beagle, Mocha (see avatar) and will be hopefully adopting her a doggie playmate in the near future. We’re new homeowners and I’m documenting the process in our blog (link in profile). Besides my husband, my house, and my dog, I love spending time with our families, photography, cooking and bargain hunting! 🙂

Hi, I’m azula, and I’ve been married for just a little over two weeks 😀 We currently live in Maryland but we got married in Puerto Rico because that’s where I’m from. Now that we’re back home, life is slowly going back to normal. My husband and I are both astronomers. He’s a postdoc who does research in galaxy formation, and I’m a grad student currently writing my PhD thesis on black hole mergers, hoping to graduate before the end of the year. We have two adorable kitties who are, for all intents and purposes, our sons. And my username comes from the name of my favorite character in the animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender”.

Konnichiwa! I’m xoxokristin and hubby and I live in Tokyo at the moment. We got married on March 8th at the city office so that we could fulfill the requirements of a DCF visa to bring my British hubby back home with me to America in October. We’ll be having a ceremony and reception then in my parent’s backyard in LA. Nevertheless, we’ve got a piece of paper that says we’re married, so we’re Newlyweds! We met here in Tokyo in 2007 and have been inseperable ever since. We moved in together almost 2 years ago so not much has changed for us in terms of newlywed life. We are happy as clams in the same old place doing the same old thing (teaching English). As for the future, we are moving to America “the land of opportunity” with no jobs, starting fresh, and hoping to find a place in San Francisco to settle in, start careers there, and hopefully a family although we are still a bit young (he is 27, I’m 24).
Excited to hear more about all the newlyweds!

Hey all! I am Andreaandchinelo 🙂 I live in a condo Washington, DC with my husband and cat and currently work at a radio station here. my husband is a Math teacher at on of the charter schools and he comes home with interesting stories every night 🙂 and not just from the kids…
We’ve been married for 6 months and i’m finally getting settled into the whole I-really-do-have-his-last-name thing…wroking with the DMV on that was hard but i’ve pushed through 🙂 now if I can just change everything else…
I’ve been buzzing around here since I googled cheap table linens in the DC area last year and have been hooked ever since! Man Weddingbee helped me out sooo much and still does now that we’re TTC 🙂

i’ve been a newlywed for a little over two weeks! we’ve been living together for awhile though, so as a lot of people say it’s not very different. so far all we’ve done is the honeymoon (which was amazing!), and i’ve started the name changing process (which sucks). i’m in fl, lived here my whole life. i have a degree in art and art therapy, but i’m currently unemployed and taking advantage of that to ttc soon.

I’m Kayakgirl73 and I got married on October 31, 2009. I know it’s Halloween but that was an accident of venue availability not choice. We got married in my hometown in West Virginia. I currently live in Virginia’s Washington DC suburbs. Before I got married I lived in Maryland’s DC suburbs. My husband and I did not live together before we got married so in addition to married life, we are getting used to living together.
I’m a Reference Librarian in a Washington, DC law firm. I like my job most of the time. I have an MLIS in Library Science and a BA in Political Science. I’m a little older than most Bees. I’m 36.
I sold my condo and we live in DH’s condo. We hope to be able to afford a house soon, however, we’re under water in the condo at the moment. I think a baby in maybe a year or so since we’re not getting any younger and we do want kids.
My hobbies are Reading, surfing the web, Kayking, Biking and Quilting. I’m learning to cook better and I love to bake although it doesn’t make my hips too happy. I love HGTV.
OOps I wrote a book, thanks for bearing with me.

Hello. My name is maisymay and I’ve been married almost 3 months. Somedays it feels like we tied the knot yesterday, other days it feels like we’ve been married forever. My nickname here is a nickname a roommate gave me in college. 🙂
My husband and I live in Morgan Hill, CA, the southern edge of the Bay Area. He’s a route manager for a dry cleaning company and I work for a publishing company. We’re both young (I’m 23, he’s 22) but pretty mature and responsible.
Random fact about us: we’re both twins. I’m older than my twin sis by about 1 minute, and his twin sis is about 2 minutes older. It shows in our personalities sometimes as I am definitely a stubborn, take charge sort of gal (ok, ok, some say bossy) and he’s laid back.
We met in college but didn’t start dating until 1 month before my graduation. We stuck together through my M.A., the rest of his B.A. and time outta school. Neither of us are perfect, but we’re perfect for each other.

This is great!
I’m Erin and I got married last July. The hubs and I live outside of DC and have been house hunting since shortly after the wedding. I’ve been spending an unhealthy amount of time thinking about all the projects we’ll have once we finally find a place.
I’m a museum educator, and mostly love my job. The only downside is that my schedule is pretty grueling sometimes. (I think March may actually kill me, I can’t believe it’s only half-over!)

@Terry – another Philly girl here! Fly Eagles fly!
I’m LoTam and I’ve been a newlywed for just under 6 months now. I found the bee when I google searched my wonderful dress – Augusta Jones, Sterling and another bee had posted a pic of it. Even though my big day has come and gone, I still enjoy helping others with the process.
Husband and I went to college together but started dating the day after graduation…figures. We’re both from Philly and bonded over our love for the Phillies (this was way before they were world champs…we stick with them through thick and thin.) We currently live in NJ where husband is finishing his PhD this summer. I commute into NYC to my job as a social worker that I love…but I do not love spending 2 hours a day on NJ Transit.
I’m patiently awaiting the day we can adopt a dog, as we’re both big dog lovers. That will come when my commute gets shorter or husband is home more. And we’re currently in the midst of planning a trip to France or Italy..maybe our last big trip before babies!
