no more planning but now what??

I can't tell you how happy I am that I don't have to plan the wedding anymore.  But now what?  For the past year, my life has been consumed with the wedding.  As soon as Keag went to bed, I'd hop on the computer or start some wedding related project while DH watched Sports center.  Now I have nothing wedding related to do and he's still watching Sports center.  lol.  What do you ladies do with your DH or FI (when you're not doing wedding related tasks)?  We don't own our house so we can't remodel or anything like that.  How can I forget what we did before being engaged??  TIA!

    We enjoy playing board games, getting together with friends, playing with our Wii... I like to try out new recipes on the weekend when I have more time. My winter project is scrapbooking- I have one to finish up that I started like 2 years ago, and I want to do a wedding one, HM one, and maybe a bridal shower one. I also journal, but haven't written since before the wedding, so I need to get back to that. I am surprised by how busy I keep myself!

    Well for me, it was grad school :-) Although I was planning my wedding and going to grad school simultaneously.

    And now, I just have more time to spend with friends and my DH! :-)

    Honeymoon planning! DH and I joked we'd have nothing to talk about now, then we realized we had a honeymoon in a month to plan for!

    I watch/DVR way too much TV and read way too many books.

    OMG, this board has babies on the brain constantly ;)

    As PP have said, having some new unexpected free time is a great opportunity to try out something new.  You guys could take up a new kind of cooking, or see all the Oscar nominated movies for the year, or study a language, or go to the museums you haven't seen yet in the burgh.

    As for FI and I, we cook a lot (he is my official sous-chef Smile), we both like many of the same TV shows, movies, and books, and we are out and about lot going to performances, museums, benefits, and trying out new bars and restaurants.  We are also fierce Scrabble competitors, haha.

    Oh, I love not planning anymore! :) But you have all that wedding type stuff to follow up on, like ordering your album, thank you notes, maybe write some nice notes to your favorite vendors for use as recommendations, etc.

    Also, you best plan your honeymoon! :)

    I like to research trips to take with my DH. Also, I have a new hobby...cleaning. I also volunteer at a local school to make costumes since I enjoy DIY. Maybe you could do more volunteering with K's school? Teachers love volunteers.

    Do you have pets? Do you guys want to eventually own a house? Just some things you could think about and research.
