My Anniversary

Five years ago today I married the love of my life. We met in college in a music theory class and knew shortly after that we would be married. God has really blessed us with eachother and with our little girl.

Since this is our five year anniversary I really wanted to do something special. I've been thinking about it for a long time. We considered going away for the weekend, but then we bought a house and money is kinda tight right now. So, we got a babysitter (thanks, Grandma) and decided to have a sort of stay-cation at home. I was going to clean the house from top to bottom, we were going to go to a movie without cartoon characters in it (we never get to do this), and have dinner and dessert at our favorite restaurant....Then we found out Bekah has strep throat. She seems fine (we caught it really early) and Grandma still wanted to take her. But, now I'm starting to feel sick. My husband says that even if we don't do anything but stay home and watch movies it will be fine with him, but I feel terrible! Don't you have when sickness has such terrible timing! Who wants to call the Doctor on their 5th wedding anniversary. I know it could be worse, but I'm still bummed.


  1. First.... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!
    And second, I know EXACTLY how you feel! Hubby and I planned a single night away from home in the Hilton Hot Tub suite, found a babysitter and a puppysitter. The day arrived and my husband was deathly ill! We still went though! At dinner he walked out because the smells made him soooo nauseous. We layed in our beautiful suite and watched TV while I ate my dinner (I obviously had to get it to go)! It was a horrible date night but definitely one we will never forget!

  2. glad to find someone who knows how I feel. We ended up staying home today and just watching movies together. I am sick, but called my doctor and was able to get on some medicine. Hopefully we can just celebrate on a different day!
