15 Years!



Yep, I've been married 15 years. It is hard to believe that it was 15 years ago - seriously am I that old? Nah, because I got married when I was 19!! I think mostly it's been good. We've moved 4 times, had 3 kids, bought 2 houses, driven 6 cars and we've had 4 cats. Not bad for 15 years - and no we didn't have 4 cats all at the same time.

We got married December 19th (yes I'm a day late posting) in Idaho Falls Idaho. We got married in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple - as did all of hubby's family and my parents. It snowed and my bridesmaids all had short sleeve dresses - downfall of being engaged for 8 months - when you buy dresses in June in California you aren't really thinking about December weather in Idaho. We had an open house at my mother in law's house because she was SURE nobody was going to come to a proper reception. It was in her basement and we had a line continuously down the basement steps. When the open house ended we loaded our stuff up in the car and drove to Jackson Hole Wyoming. Because it was snowing everyone tried to convince us not to go that night but we went anyway. They basically closed the road behind us - had we NOT gone that night we wouldn't have been able to go at all. We were snowed in at Jackson for 2 days before the road opened again - not that we were bothered. After our Honeymoon we spent Christmas with the inlaws and then packed up once again and headed to California where we had a wedding reception in my home town. It was everything I had ever wanted - and there was no line going down to the basement - and there were no little debbie snack cakes and blue kool aid. Oh but I digress. Anyway - it really feels like it was just a couple of years ago- not 15! Here's to another 15!

(I'll have to scan in a wedding picture later - I'm on the laptop so no access to any of that)

Congrats! We also celebrated 15 years this summer. Did you have a crazy color combination for your reception decorations? Like Country Blue and Peach? Or Teal and Baby Blue? Just wondering.

My colors were navy blue and burgundy. My mother in law really went with blue - attempting to make navy blue punch - using blue kool aid - it was not a success. The wedding cake was also blue - not just blue accents it was BLUE - like a watery teal blue. I'll have to find picks of the cake in Idaho and the cake in California and you guys can decide for yourselves.

Dec. 19th would have been my 32 anniversary had I stayed with Hubby #1. My colors were wine red and holly green. Oh I was young and romantic! Ha!

Congratulations to you and your Hubby!!
