  • Enjoy an anniversary?

Well if you can't tell, today is Kevin & my's anniversary... We have been married for 3 years today... We have had our ups & downs but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have the best husband. He works so hard at a job he doesn't care for just so I can stay home with our boys. He treats me like a queen & puts up with all my complaining. He doesn't dwell on my not so keen house keeping skills or cooking skills. He is AMAZING. I love you Kevin!

We didn't get to spend much of an anniversary together because my family just left this morning & he had to take a nap so he can work this new shift (swings which are good on some days & bad on others, like tonight) and he won't be home til probably around 4am or maybe earlier/later. (*he actually got to come home early because he has a class tmomrrow) However, one of the best parts of having my family visit is that I actually feel somewhat comfortable leaving my children with them... I mean I feel good about it but it is wierd to leave Lukas & Brok... Up until I had Lukas the longest I had ever been away from Brok was when he spent the night at my friend Heather's. He was 17mo old & I had been apart from him for maybe 4hrs total, if that. Well since it was our anniversary & since we knew it would be a while before we got to do it again... I left BOTH my boys with my mom. We went to dinner at Applebee's & it was delicious... Wierd but very good to get away. That was nice... Kevin also let me get a few new pieces of clothing. I say let because I won't allow myself to spend the money I would rather spend it on the boys. I found out that I am a size smaller than before I got pregnant (YAY!) and that I look good in heels & can actually walk & function in them. I am a flip flop girl all the way but I look really young. People thought my sister was Lukas's mom & she's only 17...

Anyway... here are our pictures from 3yrs ago & from today... my have things changed... if we had only known then what we know now... I would do it all over again! My life is WONDERFUL! THEN... Wow I was skinny & young looking...
