Wedding Anniversary!

This Sunday, August 23rd will be J and I's 6th wedding anniversary. WOW, 6 years already. Some days it seems like it has been 20 and some days it seems like it was yesterday. Either way we have made it 6 years and we couldn't be happier. We have 2 beautiful little girls to show for our love. I told him that I hope we make it to 60. Time will tell. One day at a time, right?

I need to scan in a picture of us on our wedding day and then a picture of us now. Between the two of us we are about 55 pounds lighter. YEA!!! That is something to be proud of. We got skinnier together instead of the usual fatter together.
Here is a picture that is anniversary related that I have. These pictures are hanging in our living room. We just put them there last weekend. We are NOT decorators. That just isn't a priority for us. I love decorated homes but we have lived in our house for 5 1/2 years and we just now got curtains in our living room and kitchen. I know, it is crazy to wait that long. But like I said, not a priority. So the story behind the pics is when we were deciding on a wedding date, I threw out the date August 23, 2003. The first thing J said was "8 is Cal Ripken's number, 23 is Michael Jordan's number and 3 is Dale Murphy's number (a catcher he loves that played for the Braves.)". So for his wedding gift I tracked down pictures of those people and framed them and gave it to him as a gift. For a while we had it hanging up in a spare room until we had kids and it had to come down so these pics have been at the top of a closet for about 4 years.

So the other day when we finally bought curtains we were trying to think of what to hang on this one wall and he said what about those pics. So up they went and we love them. Of course J is such a sports fanatic and the pictures have so much meaning for both of us. By the way, in the crazy event that we have a boy (down the road) when we get pregnant with a 3rd baby, his name will be Cal. I love the name too and it just so happens to be the name of one of the greatest baseball players of all time so it just works out.

Left to right: Cal Ripken, picture of the Bulls arena - Michael Jordan is in there somewhere, and Dale Murphy.

And the curtains we just hung in our living room that we LOVE and wish we would have done 5 years ago. Better late than never is our motto.
