Blake and Miranda's Survival Guide to Wedded Bliss
Happy First Anniversary to Country's Most Fun-Loving Couple! Since Their Nuptials Last May 14, Blake Shelton, 35, and Miranda Lambert, 28, Have Demonstrated What It Takes to Make a Marriage Work—from Smooching in Public to Serving Drinks
Blake happily caters to his wife's needs when they're watching TV at home. "She'll pick up her cup every once in a while [and shake it] ... and I go get her a drink," he says. "Just slavin' ... and she loves it."
2 Make Beautiful Music Together
They cowrote her tune "Over You," a tribute to his late brother, which was released last year on Four the Record; in February the couple performed "America the Beautiful" at the Super Bowl in Indianapolis (above).
3 Always Show Affection
They're not afraid of PDA, whether it comes in the form of a kiss (like this one at an ACM Awards preparty) or an online blast. "She IS on fire!!" Shelton tweeted about his wife in April.
4 Coordinate Your Schedules
She's been on tour; he was in L.A. for The Voice. But they never spend longer than two weeks apart. "[It's] the limit," he says.
5 Don't Forget Your Friends
Blake may be her No. 1, but Miranda spends plenty of girl time with Pistol Annies, who in August released Hell on Heels, an album with rowdy anthems.
6 Share Hobbies
Blake and Miranda bond over their love of hunting-they even served wedding guests venison they had bagged themselves.
7 Practice Parenting
Their kids, for now, are their six (!) dogs. Betty (pictured) has even toured with Mom.
8 Have Him Pick Up the Tab
"[When we] go out to eat, I conveniently forget my wallet," Miranda says. "And he has to pay!"
9 Don't Get Jealous
Her reaction to him flirting with Scarlett Johansson on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno: "I would too," she tweeted.
10 Bring Home the Gold
Their wedding rings may be lucky charms: Since saying "I do," the couple have won a combined eight big country music awards: three CMTs, three ACMs and two CMAs.
