We celebrated 5 years of marriage on Saturday and it was kind of surreal. Although we have been through SO much as a couple, it’s so hard to believe it’s been 5 years since we said, “I do.”
It was fun to look back on pictures of our history together and laugh about times we have shared.
This is one of my most favorite memories. Yes,
the Texas Rangers mascot Jeff proposed to me at a Ranger game, in a suite, with my family surrounding us. It was an amazing night and took me totally by surprise. He had been scheming it up with my aunt and uncle for months.
Look at this picture carefully. The horse hit Jeff in the leg and it knocked the ring loose from the box. The ring is actually in the air in the picture. THAT was a scary moment.
I said “Yes” with ping pong ball earrings on. Awesome.
I loved them when I saw my aunt wearing them many many years ago. She passed them on to me that night.
That night turned in to this day, 7 months later. I walked down the aisle and promised the rest of my life to my very best friend in front of all of our friends and family.
I love this picture for so many reasons.
- It was a special prayer to begin our life together.
- My uncle, who officiated the ceremony, was leading the prayer.
- I love the view of the rose petals in the aisle.
- I know who each person in the background is and I love knowing they took the time to celebrate us that day.
- One of our arrangements is peeking in to the picture and it reminds me how gorgeous all of the flowers were.
Our wedding party. I think it’s so funny that both of my dads are in the middle of the bridesmaids. I think it was one of those “get in where you fit in” moments, I guess.
The weekend wasn’t only about Jeff and me. I had lots of time to be silly with my girlfriends. Love them!
We finished up our wedding adventure in The Riviera Maya of Mexico for our honeymoon.
After an amazing weekend and an incredible honeymoon, we were ready to begin our life together.
There have been a lot of changes in the last five years.
Our family has GROWN! We are BUSY! But, we love it.
In spite of everything going on with the kids, it’s nice to stop for a bit and enjoy some time together as a couple….and that’s exactly what we did on Saturday.
Fortunately, our kids have the best grandparents, who love to spend time with them. We shipped the kids off to them and enjoyed some adult time.
We wandered around downtown Plano for a few hours going in and out of shops before we stopped at a little pub for appetizers.
After, we headed home, got prettied up, and headed out for our anniversary dinner.
This was my hot date.
The one picture we got together was taken by our waitress and the flash is not so flattering for either of us, but it was the only choice.
We had so much fun together and I can’t remember the last time we laughed that much! It truly did feel like a night from our dating life, before we had a life that was so invested in our kids.
We left so full, but still took cheesecake home for the fridge. It was nice to see this waiting for me the next day.
Can’t wait to see what the next 5 years hold for us….and the next 5…..and the next 5……
