11 years and some Friday fill in fun

May 3, 2012

Before I join Hilary for her Friday hop I want to take a minute and say

~Happy Anniversary~ to the hubby. I love you. Forever and Always.

Eleven years ago we got married on a Friday evening, close to sunset, in a Pavilion on the beach. It was so windy. I was just happy that the sun was out and the rain had stopped. The day before and the morning off our wedding day it had poured buckets and I was so worried we wouldn’t be able to have the beach ceremony, I have always wanted.

In the end everything worked out. It was beautiful. And here we are, on a Friday again, 11 years later. Happy to go out on a date, just the two of us, the kids in the capable hands of our babysitter.

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust,
partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for
any given year. ~Paul Sweeney

An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the
memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.

And now it’s time for some fill-in fun with Hilary at Feeling Beachie. Each week she posts 4 statements with blanks for us to fill in on our own blogs. She is always looking for new statements. E-mail her some! If she chooses yours, you’ll be made co-host for the week.

Here are this week’s statements:

1. I can’t stand when people say _________.

2.If you are going to ______  please____.

3. Call me a  ______  because _____.

4. If I had a dollar for every time I heard_________, I swear I’d be a millionaire by now.

Here are my answers:

1. I can’t stand when people say “I’ll be right there!” when they really mean they’ll be there in an hour or two.

2. If you are going to take the last donut out of the box, please throw out the box!!! 

3. Call me a neat freak because I sure am.

4. If I had a dollar for every time I heard “Yes, mommy, I’ll do it right now.”, I swear I’d be a millionaire by now.

    Awww, happy anniversary sugar, to you and the mister 🙂

    And those are excellent answers! Replace the donut box with the last of the toilet paper roll and you are in my house.

    Well happy anniversary!!! How wonderful to learn the story of your wedding!! Hope you guys have a fabulous day/night!!!
    Love your answers, as always! Last donut one is especially good!!! Why don’t “others” understand if you use something up leaving the box is not going to hide the fact that you used it….hmmm…

    And I love your answers… what’s so hard about throwing away an empty box?

    • Reply Susi May 4, 2012 at 5:23 pm

      Thanks, Brenda!!! I don’t know why it is so hard to throw out a box.

    And…Ah! #1 and #4 are so true for me too!

    Hey…by the way…
    Did your blog design change, or I’m imagining it? ;

    • Reply Susi May 4, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      Not imagining it. I found this theme for my German blog and love it so much I changed this one too.

    Aw.. wishing you and the Mister the very best Anniversary. Date night – woot woot! 😉

    Oh yes, #1 – drives me crazy. Just say you are going to be late. I’ll get a coffee and enjoy my ereader while I wait…..but the not knowing…are they coming? are they lost? where are they!? Agh, I go slightly mental. it ain’t pretty LOL

    • Reply Susi May 4, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      I’m with you on that. It’s especially annoying when you have food to keep warm or prepare and someone being late screws up the whole schedule.

    Happy Anniversary!!! I love the picture of you and sweetheart… So beautiful! I so agree with your #1 – always a lie!

    Happy Anniversary! Wishing you many more years of happiness! I love the picture! It is very sweet 🙂

    The one thing i can’t stand to hear people say is I have to go pee. It drives me up the wall and around the bend.

      Thank you. It’s actually my favorite wedding picture.
