Happy 5th!

Happy 5th anniversary to my wonderful husband!! Thanks for an incredible 5's to many many more! I don't know how it could possibly be 5 years already! I guess time flies when you're having fun:) Well, Kory and I always said we would go to Europe on our 5th anniversary...somehow 2 kids later that's probably not going to happen this year:) Thanks to my wonderful mother, we did get a night to ourselves last weekend in Minneapolis, which was a nice relaxing little getaway.

I thought I better put a wedding picture up to reminisce a little. We got married on Thanksgiving Day and had a very small ceremony with just family and a few close friends. It was just the way we wanted it, but it's funny how I barely remember it now and it's only been 5 years. We do have a video that my cousin Ben was so great to record for us, but I hate to admit that Kory and I have only been able to make it through the first minute or so before turning it off. As two people who really don't like to see pictures of ourselves, it's almost impossible to watch a whole video centered on yourself. Anyways, just looking at one wedding picture makes me realize how much life has's almost like these are different people in this picture. God has certainly blessed our lives in these short 5 years.

One thing that I will always remember, though, is that I decided to make my own dress. However, as a professional procrastinator I was finishing it at the very last minute (my mother-in-law can attest). I was just so thankful it fit! I will forever be proud, though, that I only spent about $60 on my wedding dress...$40 for material and $20 for the pattern:)

Enough jogging down memory lane:) Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am so thankful to the Lord for everyone in my life...especially Kory and the family we have made together in the last 5 years.

Happy Anniversary Carmen! Rick and I just celebrated 7 years on Nov. 18. I just love fall weddings! Growing up, I had always dreamed of sewing my wedding dress. That dream did not come true. It's a good thing as my plate was full and I would have had a nervous breakdown for sure!
The fact that you made yours is something to be very proud of. It is quite an accomplishment!
