I pretty much think it's cheesy when people write personal notes/letters to their husbands on their blog, but I have to make an exception this time. It's our fifth anniversary (go us!) and we are so busy getting the new house ready to move in that we can't even get away to the store alone to get a card. 

So to Chris ...
(and all you guys can peek in too)

Five years have gone by and I love you even more than back then (cliche no?)
I really appreciate everything you do for me (and Bennett) everyday even though I don't always tell you.

Last year for our anniversary last year you completely outdid (is that even a word?) yourself with a giant surprise extravaganza (read part one and two) inluding a helicopter ride and surprise family photos.

It's kind of funny, because this year we are spending it painting, packing, taking a trip to Lowe's to buy a BBQ and getting cavities filled at the dentist (and spending half the day with numb mouths). I actually considered it fitting to write a little love note to you for our #5 on a Home Depot receipt but that would be kind of awkward if we had to return something (since we have had to make many return trips already).

Even if this anniversary isn't romantic, it's still exciting. I think it's pretty darn romantic that you bought us a house and that we are putting time and effort into fixing it up together before we move in.
It's perfect and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else today.

I love you Christopher!


Soo I don't think I've ever posted any wedding pictures because the cd with all the digitals is at my mom's house. I took pictures of the pictures I have in an album so these aren't the best but at least you get to see! Unfortunately the color has changed a lot in five years, but I'm so glad we have those digitals saved on a cd.

Some of my favorites:

Happy Thursday
(and probably Friday too!)

    Happy Anniversary! I think a new house is a pretty sweet anniversary gift. I really need to get over there and see it, this week has been kind of nuts.

    Happy Anniversary! It's funny -- I think most married couples spend the majority of their first few married years at Lowes or Home Depot.. I know we definitely did. (By the way, that cake is awesome!)

    Ours is this weekend, too!!! And yes, I also posted a letter to my husband. I think it is great for girls to know how amazing a man can really be and how worth the wait it is. I couldn't say enough about husband if I tried so technically what I wrote is short by about a million words.
    So excited for your new home!!!!
