6 years ago today

*preview of what is going to happen tonight at midnight! (minus the veil, wedding dress, and tux, probably in pjs ;))

Happy New Years Eve everybody!!

Six years and a couple months ago told the story of how Hubby and I first met.

I don't remember when my friend R told me Hubby and his girlfriend broke up. I don't think I made a mental note of it because I was focused on school and didn't really know him.

We were in college so there was no school from Christmas time until January. I was at my parents house for the break.

I didn't have any plans for NYE. I asked R what she was planning on doing. She was dating a local already so she was going to be in our college town. I figured going back to college town would be better than hanging out with the rents so I went up to be third wheel. I don't remember how we ended up at the party we ended up at. I think I was sober driver but don't remember whose idea it was to go there. The reason I think I was sober driver was I was super bored at this party. It was your average college house party. I think due to my boredom I started telling people to take their coats off. I get annoyed easily by things like if everyone is sitting down and one person is standing. I will ask that person to sit down cause they are bugging me. The coats inside was another one of those things. So then I had a huge pile of coats sitting next to me on the couch.

I remember Hubby and his best friend at the time showing up to the party. I asked them for their coats.

And that is the end of the story!

Aren't you sad?! Part of my heart is a little sad for this night too. Part of me thinks if he thought I was pretty the first time he met me why didn't he want to talk to me and get to know me at this party. The other part knows I should be glad he didn't try to talk to me that night because he was still wanted to be single at the time.

Sorry, am I depressing you guys on this celebratory holiday? It gets more depressing from there. Probably the whole big pile of coats next to me and being sober thing was why I didn't find a new years eve kiss that night. But (Hubby doesn't know this part) the guy that I kind of had a crush on kissed somebody else while he was sitting right next to me?!

Palm Ceremony

An excerpt from our wedding ceremony. I saw the palm ceremony on a wedding tv show and had to have it in my wedding. There is another version for people who aren't planning to have kids. Google it.

My fil noticed there was a lot of talk about babies. I guess the groomsmen should have brought their flasks and took shots every time babies were mentioned. Hubby is still waiting for the massages promised.

"Meagan, please hold Hubby's hands palms up, so you may see the gift that they are to you. These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as he promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams. These are the hands you will someday place with expectant joy upon your stomach, until he too, feels his child stir within you. These are the hands that look so large and strong, yet will be so gentle as he holds your baby for the first time. These are the hands that will work long hours for you and your new family. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief engulfs your heart. These are the hands that will tenderly lift your chin and brush your cheek as they raise your face to look into his eyes: eyes that are filled completely with his overwhelming love and desire for you.

Hubby, please hold Meagan's hands palms up, so you may see the gift that they are to you. These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young, and carefree, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as she promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will hold each child in tender love, soothing them through illness and hurt, supporting and encouraging them along the way, knowing when it is time to let go. These are the hands that will massage tension from your neck and back in the evening after you've both had a long hard day. These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times. These are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to chase down your dreams. Together as a team, everything you wish for can be realized.

God, bless these hands that you see before you this day. May they always be held by one another. Give them strength to hold on during the storms of stress and the dark of disillusionment. Keep them tender and gentle as they nurture each other in their wondrous love. Help these hands to continue building a relationship founded in your grace, rich in caring, and devoted in reaching for your perfection. May Hubby and Meagan see their four hands as healer, protector, shelter, and guide.

My Christmas Vacation part 1

*picture of Hubby and I at my cousin's house for Christmas dinner.

The Hubby and I started our vacation at 4am Saturday the 19th. We live in so cal and our parents live in nor cal. So cal has the worst traffice ever so we leave at 4 am. We avoid traffic and get there around 11 am and we somehow don't feel too tired.

We got to my parent's house and had lunch. We love getting Papa Murphys pizza. They don't have any near where we live. We finally got to watch our wedding video! I loved being able to see what the guys were up to while we were stuck in a room getting ready. Then we went to dinner at Latitudes in Auburn. It was pretty good. Best part was the mandarini! Came back to the house and played Scategories. I won by only one point!

The next day Mom, Hubby, and I headed to the mall for some last minute shopping. I thought it was going to be crazier than it was. Then we went to lunch with my old high school friends. There were 12 of us including my friends' babies. I hadn't seen one of the girls for about a year and hadn't seen her baby yet. I think seeing them was my favorite part. Then the hubby left me! He went to his parents house for a few days. My mom and I wrapped some presents and I watched tv with my dad.

The next day I drove my mom to work and met my dad at the hospital. He got the H1N1 shot because people are saying it is going to come back in January. Then he went to Target with me to return some wedding presents. He also tried to get me a H1N1 shot at CVS. They acted like they ddin't know what that was. Then Dad went back to work and I went to the grocery store. While my dad was working he found out there was an urgent clinic by Target that had the H1N1 shot. So that evening we went to pick my mom at from work and got me the H1N1 shot and went shopping for the hubby.

The next day I relaxed and hung out with my step brother (the dog my dad got to replace me).

Wednesday (aka the night before the night before), my dad worked a half day so he could drive me up to see Hubby and go to the night before the night before party. It was crazy as always. My least favorite part was when some of the men were talking about going sky diving with my dad. Before my dad got married he went a few times. My opinion is you shouldn't be jumping out of airplanes when your one and only daughter hasn't given you grandchildren yet. My dad decided around 11pm that he was going to stay the night. My mom and I wanted him to stay the night as soon as we found out he was going to the party. So we all stayed up until 2am or so. The next morning I was shocked that my dad wasn't the first one awake. My whole life he has woken up early. He can stay up to 11pm or so and be up around 5 or 6. I didn't hear a peep from him. So I decided at 9:45 I was going to wake him up. Such a nice daughter :)! He was awake by then.

To be continued on Jan 4th...

Things I learned from People's Best and Worst of 2009 Issue

Some fun facts for those of you that didn't scam people into sending you two free mags:

During the 1990 French Open Andre Agassi's hair was part wig.

Tina Fey was a virgin at 24.

Melissa Rycroft got married and got the swine flu. (side not from a different magazine- Her bridesmaids wore Alfred Angelo! Like mine!)

Tila Tequila is engaged to heiress Casey Johnson. Gonna have to google that cause I don't know who that is. But its a girl.

Teacup pigs exist! They are mini pigs that cost $4,500. Of course Paris has one. The breeder has a waiting list for them. I told Hubby I want one and he said, "Fat chance piggy." He's mean!

Justin Guarini (remember the guy that was on season 1 with the fro and made that terrible movie Justin and Kelly) got married to a girl he met in junior high. She's 27 now. He didn't marry a junior high girl.

Crazy celeb baby names-Sparrow, Sulola, Seraphina, Blakesley, Satyana. Come on people!

That is all. Hope you enjoyed!

Hubby's teeth

Hubby went to the dentist last week. A tooth that had a cavity filled turned gray and they did a cold test and he could not feel the cold. The tooth does not hurt though. He has to go to a specialist on the 5th of Jan. I'll keep you updated. This is a conversation we had after he got back from his appointment. It makes me giggle so I hope it will make you giggle too.

Yes my husband says OMG and knows the abbreviation for sytycd. But he's hot and not gay I swear. So I allow it.

Work Christmas Tree

Here is a picture of our Christmas tree at work. I took the net off and then my friend just started wrapping stuff around it. We have been teased constantly about not shaking it out first. Oh well, we love it!

I am at my parents house this week. So glad I am blogging in pjs today and not at work staring at that Christmas tree.

Tomorrow my dad and I are driving up to the Hubby's parents' house for a night before the night before party. I don't know if I have mentioned it on here before, but we are so lucky our parents get along. Our families have gone on camping trips together for a few years now. My parents have gone to Thanksgiving dinners. My parents got to meet a lot of their friends at the rehearsal dinner. So my dad was excited to get an invite to the party. My poor mommy has to work Christmas Eve and Christmas.

I might get a post in tomorrow, but I'm sure Hubby will be hogging my time and the computer when I am at his parents house. So I will see ya when I see ya frogs! Merry Christmas!!!

Hair Update

If you missed my first blog on hair, go back and read Hair Help!. One of the comments suggested I get some hot rollers. So I marched my little butt to Target after work and picked up these rollers. They are $19.99!

Here is a picture of what my hair looked like the first time I used them. I was a little bummed that I didn't get the look I was trying for. But I have been using them for the last three days and I think I like them.
The only take 2 mins to heat up. So my routine is: plug the rollers in. Wash my face. Then the rollers are ready to go. It probably takes me 10 to 15 mins to put the rollers in. Then I leave them in for 5 mins while I do my makeup and then I take them out and brush and it looks like this.
Like I said, its not quite the look I was going for. I love that it is a very quick process though. I would say my hair has more body than I was going for. But I think it is ok because I kind of feel like I have hair like this now. Which, hello?! Not a bad thing!

6 years and a couple months ago

*pic comment- That look in his eyes is how I know no matter what happens that we will be ok.

I was going to start my 6 years ago today posts on New Years Eve, mostly because I hadn't thought about it until after the date I first met Hubby had passed. But then, my co worker asked me this question today: (note-names may have been changed to protect people's identities)

I thought this was funny and I have been waiting for some funny work conversations to post on here. But now I have to explain the first time we met.

The story begins my freshman year of college. I was a liberal studies major. This is the major you should choose if you want to be an elementary school teacher or if you want to take easy classes. I think you all know, I was the first one, but didn't mind the second part. As a freshman you have to take some general ed classes, but there are some teachery versions of some general ed classes as well. I chose to take the teachery versions whenever I could. The first day of my teachery biology class I sat down by some girls that looked nice. We started talking about what year we were and where we lived. I found out one of the girls lived in the same "village" as me. I said, "We should be friends!" (yes I am a dork, but that is why this girl, you, and everyone else love me) *fate moment-honestly that isn't something I would normally say and didn't say to anyone else I met in my classes.

Trying to keep the story short so hang with me I hope you don't get confused. The girl I met in bio, lets call her R, and I did become friends. We had several classes together and lived really close to each other (oh Uncle Chris, if you are reading this, you know who R is). She took another teachery psych class with a girl named B and they too became friends. When we were all deciding where to live *fate moment-my friends and Rs friends coincidentally decided to live in the same apartment complex down the street.

Through the year we became friends, R would mention her friend B. We talked a lot and she told me about her roommate and some of their other friends too. She mentioned B's boyfriend and things they were up to in their classes. Our sophomore year, R had a birthday party (it was in September, that is why it is 6 years ago and a couple months).

I don't know if you all know this, but I have a terrible memory. For example: watching SYTYCD last night (fyi: why can't my favorite dancer ever be America's favorite dancer?) I didn't recognize some of the people in the top 20 or some of the dances they did and I swear I watched every episode.

So knowing the fact that I have a terrible memory, what I am about to say is weird! We went out a lot in college. Lost of people had birthday parties. We took lots of pictures. Maybe I remember a lot of the details because we took pictures that night, I don't know. But I remember what I was wearing, how I did my hair, etc. I remember walking into my friend's kitchen and being introduced to B's boyfriend, Hubby! I also remember thinking, "Wow! He's hot!". You guys know, you have seen his pictures ;). But I was no longer in the business of home wrecking so I think I took some jello shots and continued on my merry way.

Hubby remembers this night too. That is why we say it was love at first sight. He remembers meeting me and thinking I was pretty. But he doesn't remember meeting any of my roommates (that is pretty strange because they were pretty hot!). Trippy huh?!

Things at this point were not so great with B and Hubby. R and Hubby told me later that R and her roommates got in a fight that night and Hubby and B also had some words. I don't know when she started being sketchy with another guy or when they officially broke up, but it was around this time 6 years ago. Look for the next part of our story on New Years Eve!

Does anyone else's husband?

Does anyone else's husband- change lyrics to a song to make them inappropriate? This weekend Hubby was changing chestnuts roasting on an open fire to Scott's nuts... Scott is our bunny's nickname. Oh maybe I'll have to explain that in a blog someday. Our bunny is fixed so he stopped singing the song and apologized. Then I asked, "Where do all the nuts go?" Does anybody know where all the animal balls go? Does everything go to the dump? Ew now I am wondering where road kill goes. Saw a dog on the street the other day. So sad, and gross!

Does anyone else's husband- doubt their bra size? My best friend worked in lingerie at Nordstroms for several years and can tell you your bra size just by looking at you most of the time. I needed a new bra so I asked the hubby to get me one for Christmas. He of course went with you pick it out and I'll buy it route. I have worn the same size since my friend measured me. I have bras of different brands. It doesn't matter, the hubby still doubts it. When we went shopping this weekend I picked out my size and it fit, again in several different brands. There were a few that were a little small even. I think he is starting to believe now. Have you ever taken your husband bra shopping? Oh man! Seeing his face when I showed him some of those price tags was priceless!!

Does anyone else's husband- try to micromanage in the kitchen? He used to bug me so much about every little thing I was doing that he is now the chef. Which you met have read in a previous post that he wants me to take over more when we have kids. We are having our holiday party at work today and he made cookies for the potluck and I made au gratin potatoes. I was doing great while he wasn't home. Then he gets home and he's asking about every ingredient and am I going to put garlic. Super annoying!

Hair Help!

For those of you that are sad and pitiful like myself, and watch Gossip Girl, have you noticed Serena's hair has had some wave to it lately? I wasn't able to find a good picture of it.

Anyways, I noticed her usual carefree mess had a wave to it and I thought I would be able to achieve it. I have to be up early in the morning to get to work early in the morning and I like to sleep in as late as possible. So I shower at night. My hair is naturally wavy so when I go to sleep with wet hair it gets crazy and wavy. My hair dressers solution was to go with hair more like Annie on 90210. Use a curling iron on the wavy crazy in the am. I have decided it takes too long.

So yesterday I tried a straightening iron on my hair in the am to try and get the wavy messy Serena hair. It just straightened the stuff int the front and left the stuff in the back wavy.

Today I tried curling the ends under but it got ugly and is now in a pony.

I might be able to straighten it to look like this picture of Serena. Maybe I'll try and take a pic.

Any tips?

Dear Tiger

My dad bought tickets to the US Open because he wanted to see you play. I have not made a peep on this blog about your accident and all the hooplah after. I do not care how many woman you slept with. I am now concerned because you have taken a break from golf. So you have managed to piss off everyone that cared about you. You have 7 months to get your stuff together and back out on the grass or I will be sending this letter to you. My dad has been a fan of yours for probaly 10 years now. He used to have a picture of you on our TV. He loves saying your name. I understand you have a lot going on right now, but like I said you have a few months to figure it out before I start calling.


Your number 1 fan's daughter

The Newlywed Game: 2 month anniversary!!

Two months! Last month our moms emailed us happy 1 month anniversary, I emailed my mil back and said, "It feels like its been 6 years." This is because we have been together about 6 years. So its kind of a joke with all of us. It is true though!

Maybe crazy is going to be the theme of our marriage, but the first month was crazy and the second one has been too! We celebrated our first Thanksgiving together. Found out that it is an important holiday that should be spent with our families and will never be doing a friends Thanksgiving again.

We celebrated the Hubby's birthday for the first time as a married couple. I was so excited to be able to buy one of the Hubby cards! His aunt sent him/us a book called The Love Dare. It is a Christian 40 day challenge for married couples to have a better relationship. We read the dare for day 8 last night. So far things have been going good. The one thing I don't like about it is it asks you to think of negative things about your spouse. There was one day you had to pick 3 things that embarrassed or irritated you about your spouse and discuss them without defending yourself or arguing. We did that one and it was ok. We are now kind of working on not doing the things that bug each other. Day 7s dare was to make a list of positive things and negative things and hide them. We didn't do this dare. Honestly I don't want to make a list of negative things and hide it from him. I feel like if we had done it I would have tried to find his list and probably would have been hurt by it. Day 8 said to burn the list. Why have someone make it in the first place? So if you pick up this book you can know that ahead of time and choose not to do it if you want.

Get ready I am going to type the c word...


Don't know if you guys have noticed, but I have been avoiding the whole winter/holidays topic. I think everyone else is doing enough blogging about it for me. I am not Scrooge or the Grinch. Love Christmas, but I think that is about all you need to know.

Well, and this: We are going home for Christmas! We are very excited and so blessed that we are able to take a week off work to spend up North with our families. This is again a first as a married couple. In the past when we were dating we would travel up together but would spend time apart and together. I went back and forth in my head trying to decide if this should change now that we are married. While we were dating we were not a couple that spent all their time together. I would travel home without him for different reasons and we have girls or guys nights apart.

I think we have decided to spend some time apart during this trip. Personally I think it is healthy to be a couple that spends time apart. I even think once we have kids we met still spend time apart. They can pick which grandparents or which parents they want to be with. I just kind of thought it would also be cute to be one of those old couples that has never spent a day without each other.

We are doing the holidays together which is new. I am excited/nervous. We will be at his families house Christmas eve and Christmas morning. I am excited to be with him for this, since I never have. I know there will be an awesome dinner Christmas eve. I am nervous about intruding on their Christmas morning. Its the first time a new person will be there!

My question to you all is when should the Hubby and I exchange our Christmas gifts for each other? We will be up North for about a week and like I said with his family Christmas Eve and Christmas morning and with my family Christmas night for dinner.

Bridal Dress Review

I like this picture because the skirt of my dress looks pretty.

Since I was talking about bridesmaids and dresses the other day, I thought I would review the place where I got my dress and bridesmaid dresses for my future bride frogs.

I was never one of those little girls that dreamed about her wedding. I didn't think marriage was in the cards for me until I met my hubby. Even after we had been dating for awhile I didn't know if he would ever propose. Took him 5 years! What dress I would wear or pick out for my bridesmaids was something I had not thought about.

The girl in the red satin dress was a bridesmaid. Didn't ask anyone if I could post their picture. Best pic of the dress. Most of the pictures they are holding their bouquets and you can't see the black band around the waist.

There have been other pictures on here of my dress if you want to see better pics. Anyways, on with the buying of the dresses experience:

When talk of marriage was going on my parents asked that we get married close to where they live. It is the best location for the majority of both families. I agreed but told my mom that she would need to help out a lot. I also chose my cousin that lives nearby my mom as my matron of honor so she could be there to help when needed. My mom and I emailed back and forth a lot about dresses for everyone in the bridal party. The bridesmaids that lived in the area and one that was visiting all went shopping one day and sent me pictures. WARNING TO ALL FUTURE BRIDES: the colors of bridesmaid dresses online are not the actual color. ANOTHER WARNING: Alfred Angelo never had the dress we liked in their store for my bridesmaids to try on. I didn't realize there was black tubing at the top of the dress. I ordered the wine colored straps for the dresses because they came with black and I thought it would look weird. It probably would have been fine with black. My mom and bridesmaids said they liked the color when they saw it in person. Then I saw the color in person and since everyone liked it I went with it and told three of my bridesmaids to order the dress in that color. It was a little more red than the dress we ended up with. I couldn't sleep all night because I didn't like the color. The next day I changed the color. Alfred Angelo where we ordered the dresses made me feel like a psycho for changing the color and told me they never change the color. Our opinion was that it was the day after the dresses were ordered, the dresses hadn't been made yet, don't make me feel like a bridezilla.

I always said I wouldn't get a wedding dress at Davids Bridal. Once I started looking I thought some of their dresses might be ok, so we went there first for the dress search. I swear this was not some sub conscious thing. I tried on probably 20 dresses and a few of them were ok, but none of them were the dress. All of them had something weird about them. Now I know lots of girls that have gotten perfectly fine dresses there. The girls (two because I was there for so long) that helped me were wonderful. I wish they hadn't sold my name and phone number to a bunch of companies that called me telling me I had won stuff.

The next day we went to Alfred Angelo. I probably tried on 10 dresses. This time they were all beautiful. I tried many different styles and the decision was difficult. My aunt and cousin and the women in the store liked one of the dresses but my mom cried when I tried on a different one. If you watch say yes to the dress (amazing show) you have seen girls who loved a dress but their mom didn't love it so they left with nothing. I wanted my mom to love my dress. So I put the one myself and everybody else liked on and my aunt started crying and then me and my cousin started crying and we knew it was the dress. It is the dress in all the pictures. I love my dress.

The dresses were affordable. Comment with your email if you want to know how affordable. The alterations were way over priced! I also had to pay $30 for the dress to be 3 inches longer because I am 5'10. I almost had another bridezilla moment over the alterations lady that messed stuff up. The straps I have on the dress were supposed to be removable. The bustle was supposed to be just one hook. I only paid for one hook but she put five. That was kind of lucky. Even though the bustle kept falling down every time I sat. All brides I have talked to had bustles that wouldn't stay unless they were sewn. If you decide to buy a dress at the Alfred Angleo in Roseville, CA I will give you the name of the lady that messed stuff up. She also pricked herself and got blood on my dress but she was able to get it out. The dress was pressed for free twice. It was so big it was hard to have in a closet without getting wrinkled. I wish the bodice had been smoother.

Hope all this helps!

This post is kind of inspired by the writers workshop prompts on Mama's Losin It Her prompts were inspired by a husband that lost his wife 27 hours after giving birth to their daughter and a woman who suffered a stroke and is now fighting to stay with her husband and family. I also follow a widow blogger at Keep Believing I am terrified that something horrible like any of these stories could happen to my husband or I. As a child growing up I was never able to imagine myself grown up and I thought that meant I would die young. I don't know if it is normal for people to second guess their happiness like I do. Does anyone else worry their story won't get a happy ending?

It is a big scary world out there. I have friends who are dealing with their children having health issues. I have always thought about what I would do if we had trouble getting pregnant or keeping a pregnancy, but I have never thought about what if the child has health problems.

I have faith in God that keeps my anxiety about all of these things lower than it could be. So far he hasn't given me anything I couldn't handle and everything that was tough made me stronger. When you look at your blessings and the pretty easy road you have taken and compare it to others' tough roads, it is hard not to wonder when the other shoe will drop.

Working on some happier posts for the rest of this week.


Here is a picture of the dress we will actually be wearing to my friend's wedding in June. Its $40 at Target and going pretty quick, but I think it could be cute for a holiday dress.

I thought I would share a funny story from when we were shopping for bridesmaid dresses for my wedding. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were in town for brother-in-law's baseball game. So we decided to go to the bridal store where I wanted to get their dresses to try some things on and look at colors. One of my bridesmaids that lives in town met us there.

After we were done in the store my bridesmaid was talking to my mil. I walked up and heard this conversation:

Bridesmaid: "Where do you live?"

Mil: "We live in (small town in Northern California)"

Bridesmaid: "So will you be driving or flying?"

Mil: "Did we drive or fly here?"

Bridesmaid: "No, for the wedding."

My mil held it together nicely and told her that they would be driving. After we got in the car I said, "So will you be driving or flying?" We all started cracking up. Our wedding was about a two hour drive from her house. There aren't even large airports in the town if she wanted to fly. She would have to drive to Sacramento and the plane wouldn't even go anywhere casue she would be there!

The worst part of the story is my bridesmaid grew up in Nor Cal with me. We still make fun of her for this comment, behind her back, because no one has the heart to explain to her how stupid her question was.

Pics from Hubby's Bday

His card and presents.

His favorite present.

His birthday meal. Fondue! I did most of it. He cut up the shrimp because I don't know how to do it. He also cut the bread.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating his birthday. He was able to make a wish when we went out to dinner with friends to Outback this weekend. I returned two of the presents because he is very particular about his boxers!

*Picture represents how I feel. Not an actual pic of me although I love her butterfly top.
Well, Hubby got me sick! I thought I had gotten him sick cause I was feeling a little icky the week before he got sick, but judging by the trash can sitting next to my desk, I was wrong. It is full of kleenex! Thank God I brought a box from home. People I work with are thieves!

I realized last night when I was reading the medicine box and I had all the symptoms that I was SICK! But I am here at work because I tell myself that all I do is sit around at work anyways. Plus I didn't have a fever and I feel like I have to have a fever or have someone tell me to stay home before I will call in sick. So I am here spreading my germs around for all to enjoy. At least we know no fever means no swine flu!

I am drinking A LOT of liquids! I am prone to sinus infections and I REALLY don't want to get another one. Which means going to the bathroom at ton! Don't want to have to pay to get to the doctor and pay for antibiotics and take antibiotics! My mind is also totally foggy so sorry if I commented on your blog and it made zero sense. Or if this blog isn't making sense because I have had to edit it about 7 times! I'm sure once I feel better I will go through the files here at work and wonder what crackhead put 1978 before 1329.

I will try to upload my pics from Hubby's bday and do a post about it soon.

The Birthday of the Man of my Dreams

I know, I know! Go ahead and swoon ladies! Go ahead and tell me how lucky I am! Don't tell me his is hot though. I feel like that has a certain undertone I don't appreciate. I am the only one that gets to call him that.

Twenty-seven years ago on this day my soul mate was born.

I am so grateful to his parents for raising him to be the man that I fell in love with. The man that asked me to be his forever.

It is the first birthday as husband and wife and I am so excited to buy him a husband birthday card! My parents got him a son-in-law birthday card! It just cemented for me how much my parents love him. Hey, I may have friend problems but you haven't seen a bad thought about in laws! We are so lucky! I was just telling my cousin that my in laws invited my parents to thanksgiving even though we wouldn't be there. Can you believe that? Anyways, back to my hunky hubby!

I met him before his 21st birthday and we started dating a few months after. So I have celebrated 6 birthdays with him so far and am so excited to celebrate the rest with him!

Today we will go out to lunch and use his free lunch coupon. After work I will be making a salad, bread, and fondue! He will open his present that you all helped me pick out. This weekend we have plans to go out to dinner with friends. Oh update, they wouldn't give up on benihanas, we wouldn't give up on outback so we are going to outback without them!

I want to share a funny story from yesterday. I had lean cuisine macaroni and cheese for lunch. Barf! Didn't finish it cause of the weird after taste. I think I am giving up my microwave meals. Anyways, so still hungry I went to get chex mix from the vending machine. It totally didn't push the bag all the way out! So I asked hubby what to do, no help. Then I went back out and stuck my arm in the thing and pulled my chex mix out. I came back and instant messaged hubby. He said, "Good job babe. Way to be resourceful." I said, "I'm scrappy". He said, "That is why I love you." Aw he is so cute!!

Baby, I hope you have an amazing 27th birthday! Love you more and more every day! xoxo, Wifey

I was debating what to blog about and decided the topics are kind of related to hang on while I try to do a combination blog.

The first topic up for discussion is anonymousness. Several of my frogs have had their blogs read by people they didn't want to, or became so worried about it that they changed their blog to a more protected site.

I often consider who could possibly be reading my blog while I type away. There are a few things I would do differently if it was completely anonymous. And just in general there are a few things I would change about my blog if I could have a redo. Anyways, is it something you all think about? Have you found a blog someone you knew wrote in which you were discussed?

I think it is human to be annoyed with whatever someone is saying about you, unless it is all wonderful. I am pretty sure if they hubby ever got bored enough to read this he would not approve of a few of the posts that discussed him.

With all that in mind, I need to rant about some stuff. If you read this and find I am discussing you, call me if you want to discuss it, don't automatically get pissed off. This is coming from a place of frustration, when people are frustrated they say things a little meaner than normal.

As you know, the hubby's bday is tomorrow! Feeling guilty since no bday paraphernalia at all has been purchased. Target here I come!

We have good friends (they were in our wedding and saved our butts and the bunny when we had to be evacuated because of a fire) that live in the area and one of them has a birthday on Thursday. In the past we have thrown the boys a joint surprise birthday party and done dinners together. We have been planning on doing this again this year. But we have a dilemma. Hubby wants to go to outback. Its delicious, we have a coupon, and its affordable. Friend wants to go to benihanas. We have nine people coming. The tables don't fit nine. Anyone else agree with hubby that benihanas is double the price of outback? There has been an accusation that hubby picked red lobster last year. I don't think he was the one who picked it. He may have suggested we try it cause the commercials make it seem good. The friends who have been there before were totally down. We were disgusted and will never return. This is stupid! I'm sure you are all agreeing. I am just annoyed that there has been texting back and forth between friend's wife and I and its not our bdays! I want the boys to handle it!

I also had a terrible Thanksgiving. It was held at these friends' house. I have not discussed with them why it was terrible, so don't feel right discussing it on here. Also tired of being Debbie Downer. They don't even know I had a terrible day. Ok, sunshines and rainbos tomorrow as we celebrate the birthday of the love of my life!
