9 years ago today my college roommate and fiance convinced me to climb up on these rocks in my wedding dress for this picture. What was I thinking? That was CRAZY! I hate peer pressure.
Flash forward and we aren't exactly the "daredevils" we used to be. Here we are in 2010 in a less dramatic location (outside the Los Angeles Temple) -
It doesn't seem like we've been married for 9 years, but then I start looking at all our stuff. This is about the time when the wedding gifts break and I wish I would have kept all of those Mikasa platters I returned. Someone recently told me that her parents threw a party for their 10th anniversary and requested that people bring gifts. I thought it sounded pretty tacky, however, if anyone wants to start that trend, I welcome it. Just hurry up with making "10 year wedding showers" cool in time for me to have one next year. I have a lot of stuff to replace.
Speaking of replacing stuff, to celebrate our 9 year anniversary we are doing something crazy. (No, we're not buying a microwave. That would be nuts!!) We're buying our first fancy vacuum. I ordered it today and can't wait for it to arrive!
The only downside to celebrating with a vacuum is that this means we are officially boring and old. That's okay, I knew it would happen eventually.
Happy Anniversary to us! It's gonna suck! (Ha ha, that was a vacuum pun. Good one, eh?)
