Happy Anniversary (yesterday)! I can't believe it's been 10 years. It seems like yesterday, yet so long ago. We didn't go anywhere spectacular to celebrate but had a nice night out to celebrate (we went to Flagstaff last month for a friend's wedding and "counted" that as our trip). Here's what I remember from our first 10 years:
1. Always put the toilet paper with the paper going over, not under 2. I never realized that the decision of which side of the bed you choose to sleep on when you're first married is one that you'd better like for the next 50+ years 3. If I love something for dinner, don't have it all the time or you'll grow to hate it.... 4. Never make ham and macaroni salad for dinner again, ever. 5. Never misplace a chocolate bar and then eat the whole thing yourself once it's found (or atleast never fess up that you hid one) 6. Too many girls in the family = daddy does not like, nor appreciate shopping (he sees $$$$) 7. You think that it's strange to eat pie for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. Someone's gotta eat the leftover's, right? 9. Husband's will always be better at video games than their wives, it's the law. (If you do find one that you're better at, play it as much as you can) 10. That I love you a google + infinity!
Do not let your 2 year old turn the mixer on when making cookies. We were making sugar cookies on Sunday afternoon and the girls were "helping". Sydney wanted to turn the mixer on. Instead, she turned the button to pulse, and when adding flour, it's not a great idea. At the moment it seemed like it was happening in slow motion but in a split second there was flour covering almost every square inch of my kitchen.
*Aubrey, this is karma from our Halloween cookies a few years ago.
I am a busy wife and mom of five and I love to decorate my home. Whether it be shopping for that perfect accessory or finding exactly what I had in my mind at a second hand store to redo, I love it all. Having to do it on a tight budget has taught me how to DIY everything! I work from home doing some accounting work to support my habit. I have to confess...I am a decoraholic!
