The List..anniversary style.

This is my very favorite picture of Zach. To me this is really him and I love it when I can catch the real person on camera..especially when that person is my hubby. (oh he hates this pic)


10. As of yesterday, I've been married for 14 years. I told Zach,

"I'm sure glad it's not 14 years ago today."

He responded,

"You say that every year."

"I do!?"

So that made me feel a little bad. I don't mean it like I wish I never married you.. I mean it like..man I wish we would have eloped.

9. If we have been married for 14 years, that means for the past 17 years I have thought he was the sexiest jogger in all the land.

8. When we first started dating, he had a mullet..and it was long after mullets were cool.. but I was able to look past the mullet and convinced him to get the uber cool mushroom cut instead.

7. He officially asked me to marry him at our rehearsal dinner. I only have one question..

What if I had said no?

6. Our hardest year of marriage to date was the 7th (7 year itch?) So does that mean that the 14th will be next? I'm going to stay positive and say no.

5. Although, after the 7th year I came to realize how much I truly did love the guy..so I guess it was not all bad. (I'm not too sure why it took me so long to realize that..that will have to come in a another blog post)

4. When you start dating a boy at age of 17 he does not have chest hair.. looking back on that now.. I get kinda creeped out.

3. One of the best things about Zach is, he has always pushed me to better myself. He has always held me to this higher standard.. not in a bad way.. but in a really good way. He does truly help me be a better person, and lets face it, I need all the help I can get.

2. Our first kiss was in Gold Bar Washington..how many of you out there can say that..huh??
Gotcha.

1. In the tradition of saving the best for last... (drum roll). I just have to tell you what I was surprised with on the morning of our anniversary.

A round trip tix to Minnesota (it gets better), in September for
What is the Creative Connection?? Just an UBER fabulous event for creative women in business. AMAZING speakers, AMAZING classes and of course being surrounded with lots of other FABULOUS women! I soo can't wait! Miss Elaine is going along as well, her and Zach planned this whole little sneaky thing out! I just about fainted..then I felt a little guilty..
but thankfully that passed quickly.

Such a very blessed life I have.

yay! you really did save the best for last! Honestly, it was ALL Zach. He called me. I was impressed. I told Andrew that today. He surprised J with a little sweet surprise. I told him, don't ever stop...just keep surprising her with acts of sweetness.
p.s. one of my VERY favorite things is hearing a gal say how crazy she is about her husband. You have been doing that for many years...keep it up!

"All because two people fell in love" you have that sigh right? My sign says, "all because two people got stoned" Hmmm...Elaine, maybe you can make a charm for me that says that! Happy Anniversary!
