Happy Anniversary to me

Yes my anniversary is 2 days after Valentine's day.

We didn't get ourselves organized to get all our paperwork in in time to get married on the 14th.. so we waited 2 days later.

The hub and I are celebrating our 2 year (yes only 2) wedding anniversary but we've known each other and dated on and off for 13 years.

It's been 2 long, crazy, twisted, winding roads with lots of bumps, bruises and ex's but the roads finally ended up where they were meant to.

We met at the mall. He was 18, I was 20.

Hub has known my BFF2 almost all his life, they grew up together and live around the corner. They have a very strange love-hate I was at work with her one night (we weren't BFFs yet) and he came in to visit her. I saw him and thought .. he's really cute. He was hanging out in the store and decided to go to the food court for something... to this day I don't remember.

Being the nice guy he is, he asks" Can I get you anything?"

My response..........."Yea... can I have you?"

The look on his face was priceless.....and that's the how we met story.

Shoot to the day we got married.

We decided lets just do it. so we did.

We were told about this little walk in wedding place. It was in a office building, right next to the courthouse and some judge married people on his lunchbreak from noon -1pm

We couldn't find the building and kept walking up and down the street til we finally asked somebody at the courthouse. We found the building and were the 1st couple in line. My hubby in his cast from his ankle surgery and me in these flipflops that hurt bad but were super cute with sparkles.

We walked in the office.. and stood under this cheesy wicker arch. The judge couldn't remember our names and had to look at the paper when saying our i do's. It was hysterical... but when it was over we were hubby and wife. We don't even have a single picture.

I have just one picture from the week we got married here in Hawaii. It's him and I on the beach in the rain. Him in his ACUs and me in this blue Seaside hghts, NJ hoodie. It's fuzzy and terrible but I still have it in a picture frame on the shelf.

If I had to do it all over again.... I'd do it the same way.

I'd just bring a camera.

Happy Anniversary Baby! I love you.
