Happy 6(9) Year Anniversary!

It’s the one thing Ryan and I have argued over for years.  He says since we acted married from the start it should be 9 years but by paper it’s only 6.  Since he made me a deal when we got married that I could get a diamond anniversary band to match my wedding band when we got to our 10 year anniversary I’ll agree to the 9 year mark.  Now, he’s all for this until I remind him about the shiny promise… then we’re back to the legal numbers.  😦  Poo  I likes me my shiny stuff!

Regardless who wins this one it’s our anniversary all the same.  We got to take a trip last year to see all the pretty colors of the Lake of the Ozark area.  It was a lovely long weekend.  No plans other than some nice quiet alone time this year though.  I have one amazing man I tell ya!


I found mine!


Happy 5th/8th Anniversary?

I’ve talked before about how long I’ve been married and  if you remember we decided to use hubby’s math on this one.  So with that reminder I wish my dear hard working husband a happy 8th anniversary!  Big plans you ask?  Yes, but you’ll have to wait a bit for details.

As Promised

I’ve been arguing with myself lately about exactly how much to share on this blog.  I’ve always tried to be as honest as possible.  That’s not the issue.  It’s more about how much specific things do I announce?  Like where I live and real names of people kind of things.  I’m still rolling all of it around in my brain.  While I work on that please enjoy some of the pictures that Hubby was given for our anniversary.  Thanks again Grace!  You’re talent knows no bounds.

I Need Your Help.

I have just given up.  Yes, it takes a lot to get stubborn me to say that.  I’ve just walked away from about two hours of blog jumping with nothing to show.  I was looking for other blogs that I would like to follow.  I’ve got quite a list going on my google reader.  Most of which are food related (I only try recipes that other people have raved about… it’s safer for all involved).  I  don’t think I was asking to find something that didn’t exist.  Here’s what I was looking for.

  1. No “countdown to the Big Day” blogs (or those that are still basking in the wedding day/honeymoon glory for that matter).
  2. No here’s-the-top-10000000-reasons-MY-baby-is-so-much-better/smarter/cuter-than-your-baby blogs.
  3. No blogs from people that have everything they want (“what do you mean you live paycheck to paycheck?”).
  4. No blogs about how to find the latest celebrity trends.  Sorry folks, I don’t care.

Now, I could be asking for too much I know.  But surely there’s SOMEONE out there that isn’t blogging about looking fab in her latest Gucci purchase while meeting with her designers for the new baby’s room since after all the best kids are conceived during the honeymoon.  If you know of a site you think is worthy PLEASE pass it my way will’ya?
