5,475 days.....

Monday, August 16, 2010

Yep....5,475!!! That is how many days it takes to make 15 years.

Chris & I packed the suitcase(well, I did really) loaded the cooler(well, I did really) pushed Kyle out the door to annoy the GP's for a while(Chris pushed & I pulled)...and we headed down the interstate bound for Myrtle Beach to spend our 15 year anniversary in the place we met.

We had no reservations at all...Chris just decided we would drive until we found somewhere that looked nice. This would usually drive me insane(for those of you that know me can verify that I am a HUGE planner!!!) But I agreed...and we drove with no certain place in mind. We just knew we wanted it to be quiet, with a nice pool and not too crowded.

We found a nice family owned hotel right on the beach with a nice pool and the beach was almost empty!!!! We checked in and then headed out to find "our" stop light. For those of you that don't know the story behind our stop light you can click on the link above that says "Our Story" and here the entire thing from start to finish (it really is a neat story if I say so myself and one that I can not wait to share with my grandkids one day.....one day like 20 years from now!!!!)

We had a wonderful time. We lounged by the pool, drank wine, ate amazing food, played putt-putt and layed by the pool some more. We even got suckered into one of those time share tours .But hey, they gave us $100 bucks in cash and a trip voucher for 7day/7night stay...BIG SCORE!

Chris & I are not big on giving gifts to each other since all of our money goes in the same account and if we see something we want then we buy it but one thing we are big on is cards. So I got the sweetest card from him with a note inside that just melted my heart.

To some, 15 years may not seem like a long time but when I look at us and see how far we have come, the fact that I met him when I was 18, married him when I was 19. and had Kyle when I was 20 it seems like an eternity...and the fact that when I look at our wedding pictures and my dress is so out of style that it makes me laugh. It had the open back, long puffy sleeves that came to a point on my hand and a HUGE bow to show off my butt! No if that don't scream OUT OF DATE I don't know what does! But at the time, it was so IN STYLE that America's Next Top Model would have been jealous!

So here's to US.... And our next 15 years!!!!

(I did take a few pictures that I will post for you guys later)
