Oh, what a mile stone!!



Today, Lonnie and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary. Well, . . . actually, it was more like this afternoon we remembered it was our 5 year anniversary!! Haha! You know, I've thought about it several times this week, but it completely slipped my mind until about mid-afternoon. Obviously, we are not the kind of people that get each other gifts OR a card. We both have always had that theory that if we really want anything, we will just go out and get it ourselves and the card thing - well, let's just say that is another way that we conserve trees!

I actually had to dig out the wedding album just for this post - it was still in box from the move! I cracked up looking through it - I have some really great memories of that day. I remembered I wanted to skip the whole wedding thing, but Lonnie says, "we can't . . . . , it is a sacred thing and we have to have a ceremony," in a whiny voice. I'm thinking, "gag a maggot!" To know us, you would truly understand these comments! Since Lonnie can be such a girl, you see - I must step up and be the MAN!! Seriously, I didn't want a big hub-bub of a wedding. Courthouse would have been great . . . Justice of the Peace, here we come!! But NO, Lonnie had to have a wedding, so I gave him a wedding!! We sent out 302 invites. Had those jokers addressed by some chick who did the scrolling {not calligraphy - yuck!} but scrolling. Has anyone ever seen that - it is gorgeous! We spent way too much money and ate cake for weeks!! The cake was sooooo good, that after we polished it off, we took the top layer out of the freezer and ate it. I'm not joking, I think we ate it at about the 2 week mark of marital bliss!! No freezer burn there and no need to wait a year - who came up with that crap anyways!! That has to be one of the "stupidest" 1st anniversary rules I've ever heard!


But 4 kids {almost}, 3 fish, 2 dogs and 1 cat later, we still have it going strong . . . real strong. Happy Anniversary, Lonnie - my friendship on fire.

{Dang, look how skinny I am in those pictures!! I had to post the full body shot just so I could remember those "skinny - size 2 days!!" Memories!!}
