Happy Anniversary to my parents! They are spending a romantic weekend getaway in Scottsdale. There is no denying that my parents are ridiculously in love - when you meet them it's evident how much they mean to each other. My Dad worships the ground my Mom walks on - he does so much for her and is her biggest fan. My Mom is so supportive of my Dad and she still gets all mushy when he's around. I know, it gets nauseating - my sister and brothers and I have developed somewhat of an immunity, what with watching them be all kissy in front of us all our lives. I feel lucky to have such loving parents who really love each other. Here's to 35 more!
I have so much to post about, all these topics that have been going through my mind since...oh, yesterday. I have a lot to do today, so I will have to postpone said topics until tomorrow or the next day, but nevah feah! That just means that some trivial posts are on the horizon!
1 - My own marriage. Cody is the perfect balance for me. When I think about it, Cody and I are very different. At least, we were when we started dating. I was a poser skater girl who loved punk music and Cody was a quiet cowboy who owned a Harley and a horse. But the more we dated, the more we had in common - our views and opinions and plans. I fell in love with him, who he is. Marriage is tough and we certainly have our moments, but there isn't anyone I would rather spend my life with.
2 - My sister. I love that I can tell her anything, ask her anything...she is my bestest friend and I love her, love her, love her.
3 - That I grew up in a creative family. I have so many memories of sitting at our dining table painting plasters, carving pumpkins or coloring pictures. Our parents really encouraged us to be creative and it still inspires me.
4 - My DVR. Dude - if I couldn't record my favorite shows, I don't know what I would do. Commercials are so last season!
5 - Braces. I have posted pictures of me before my orthodontic intervention and lets be honest, they weren't pretty. Hooray for brackets and wires that result in a straight smile!
5a - And thanks to my sister for marrying an orthodontist - now my kids will have straight teeth!
