A Belated Anniversary Blog/Tag I made up...

Well, I had my anniversary a week ago Saturday. My husband stopped at the store on his way home from work and went straight into the kitchen. He was doing some stuff. I went in there and he was cutting a bunch of roses putting them in vases. There were probably two dozen total, very lovely. I said, "Oh how nice! What did you do that for?" Then he handed me a card and said, "I figured you'd forget." Yeah, I seriously forgot. I seem to every year. I will remember the days until, but never the day of. He said that it's nice that he can surprise me each year, haha. I suppose I am more like the man in that respect. Haha.

I thought, perhaps I should do a little anniversary blog post.
Ten Happy Anniversary Things:
1. How did we meet?: We met at a church dating activity.
2. What was your ice breaker?: He was working at a mortuary and my grandmother had recently died . I told him I knew a little bit about that type of stuff, haha.
3. First date and what did you do?: August 3, 2002 I told him to take me to the church dance and that we were going to hang out for a while before and go to dinner. I paid, since I was being so manly. We went to Fazoli's before the dance then had a walk at the Promenade until 2 am. Don't tell my parents, they were out of town at the time and didn't know I was out past curfew. Mom, I promise all we did was hold hands!
4. Who kissed who first?: I kissed him. I told him that I thought I should kiss him. So I did.
5. Who asked who to marry?: He asked me to marry him. He had a trail of rose petals leading to a candlelit dinner of chinese at my brother's and his wife's apartment. I thought we were interrupting them in the middle of something(if you know what I mean, bow chicka bow wow!) because they were no where to be seen and I was under the impression that we were doing a double date that night. I was very surprised.
6.What do you love about him?best physical feature? personality?: Physically I have always loved his eyes. They are so warm and sweet. They just make me feel comfortable. I love his willingness to serve and help others in anyway. He has always given of his time to help friends and family, no matter what, how stressful or how long it takes. He is a very affectionate and loving father. His children adore him. I love that he can fix anything, whether it be cars or plumbing or anything really. He can always make me smile and laugh no matter how grouchy I am. I love that he puts up with my emotions during pregnancy, haha. He better though. I don't get in this state without a bit of his help, or the mailman's, I can't remember which it was this time.
7. Wedding date and where?: July 19, 2003 and the Denver, Colorado Temple
8. Why did you get married?: I fell in love with him. I knew without a single doubt that he was the one I was supposed to marry and I couldn't imagine life or eternity without him. I know, it sounds corny and yes, it is corny.
9. How many love babies do you have?: Almost 4. Duncan born June 29, 2004. Liam born December 5, 2005. Gwendolyn born March 30, 2007. Rosaline(Rah-zah-lyn) due August 26, 2008.
10. Do you love each other more, less or just as much as you did the day you got married?: I don't always feel I love him more, but I do, haha. Even with all the ups and downs we have had I love him more and more and feel closer to him through the trials we face.

Danielle, you crack me up! I can't even remember what our wedding color name was. It was some type of purple, lavender perhaps. You have inspired me to write a blurb about Heather and I for our wedding anniversary this Sunday.

BTW, your first date with Mark was my first wedding anniversary. That was a loooooong time ago. You make me feel old
