5 Years!

Justin and I got married 5 years ago today! It truly does not seem like it has already been 5 years!We were incredibly thankful to have such wonderful weather since we planned a January wedding. It was about 40 degrees outside, and there was hardly any snow on the ground! The weekend before was a major ice storm, so we were thankful that we had a week for the roads to clear up!

So many family members and friends drove long distances to make it our wedding! (In fact, other than our brothers and sisters, all of our bridesmaids (3 besides my sisters) and groomsmen (3 besides our brothers) had 4+ hours drives/plane rides to get here!) We have great friends - and most of their parents came too from those long distances!

Our day was perfect and went very smoothly, and we had such a great time celebrating our day with so many people!

A little bit of randomness from the last 5 years ...

*Our family has grown from 2 to 5 ... Jordyn, Jayla, and Gizmo! (We couldn't leave out our furry child!)

*We have lived in 2 states, 2 duplexes/townhouses, and owned 2 houses.

*We have owned 4 different vehicles.

*We have each had 2 different jobs ... his both in insurance, mine both in teaching.

***All within my 9-month pregnancy with Jordyn, we lived in 2 states, 2 different houses, 1 townhouse, had 4 different jobs, and 4 different vehicles. Talk about a busy year in 2008!

*We have traveled to Jamaica twice and Las Vegas once ... and an upcoming trip that we will soon be planning to take in May.

*We have learned that we have about 4 favorite movies that we can literally watch over and over and over. We have them on DVD, but we also have them on DVR them so that on Friday nights when we're too lazy to move from the couch, we just turn them on.

*We have spent countless hours playing the wii, just the two of us ... and we still continue to be completely entertained by it - and very competitive!

*We have played hundreds of games of Rummy, Blokus, Rummikub, SkipBo, King's Corner, Sequence, Yahtzee ... and the list goes on. We LOVE to play games!

*We go to a movie about one or two times a year ... when we were dating, we often went 2-3 times a month! Ha!

*5 years have been amazing, and we can't wait to see what's in store for the us in the next 5 years!

Happy Anniversary, Justin!
