Happy 11th Anniversary, Brian

If you knew that...

My feet were so rough that it felt like I was wearing boots to bed

I project human qualities onto animals

Pringles make me gassy

I'm not cuddly

I am impatient

I require a mini pillow fort to sleep

I am a non procrasinator

I get bent out of shape when you don't say bless you after I sneeze

I am not very experimental with my hair

I am clumsy and constantly stub my toes

I lied about wanting to hunt pheasants with you someday

I have an unhealthy addiction to chapstick

I can tease you right back

Would you have still married me?

Thanks for being such a good egg!
I love you...


  1. Oh how romantic! Happy Anniversary.

  12. You look so beautiful!! Happy anniversary!

  13. Congrats on your anniversary. I remember my first trip to Utah was for your wedding. I made my own dress for the event and everything! It was a great trip and I wanted to be just like you:-)

  14. Happy Anniversary! What a cute wedding photo, you guys look the perfect couple.

  15. Happy Anniversary! I remember it like it was yesterday, as well! I love this picture of the two of you. I remember I wanted to wear your wedding dress, only to grow up to find you are one petite woman, and I am not... :)

  16. wow- you are a GORGEOUS couple! :)

    what a sweet post. congratulations on 11 years!!!

  17. So beautiful... congrats on 11 years. Does it seem longer or shorter?

  18. Happy Anniversary! This is a great list. We all could make a list about ourselves just like this (except for the Pringles part, what the?). And I'm sure Brian could make a list of "If you knews" too. I don't know if any of us would have gotten married if we'd really known what was involved, luckily some of it becomes endearing rather than annoying.

    Beautiful picture!

  19. What a perfect tribute--sweet and funny--the way things should be. Hope your anniversary was fabulous!

    Beautiful photo!!

  20. Like Jill, I wonder if any of us would have gotten married if we knew what we were really in for! I'm glad for sacred vows that keep us together when things get hard.

    Stunning photo of the two of you!

    (by the way, I'm laughing about Brian saying your kids could work for the Bureau of Weights and Measures!)
