Yep, that's right. 5 years from the day we met. I'd say that's an accomplishment! I can't believe he stuck around through my crazy and constant house renovation ideas, and that I'm still here after dealing with his obsessions like a 135 gallon fish tank! I guess that's what makes the world go round and our lives a little bit more...eventful. ;)
I just looked up the traditional gift for a 5 year anniversary. It was...wood! Although I don't consider Colin and I dating 5 years an anniversary, I definitely got wood all right. A whole forest full! (See above post)
So, happy 5 years to my wonderfully patient and sometimes crazy boyfriend, Colin. I hope 5 years one day turns into 70!
This last weekend was the wedding of my sister and her husband Justin (weird to say!).The day was pretty gloomy but it didn't end up raining for the outside ceremony. Instead, it held of until the reception where it poured like crazy. Good thing we were inside!
The ceremony was nontraditional and fun. Low key, short. Perfect. The reception was beautiful in the Puyallup Pavilion. Everyone ate a ton, danced their feet off and had a great time until 1am. We even had a beer bong event and the best candy bar ever! The best part? We got to drive down to the ceremony and home in a short bus. Yep. A short bus loaned to us by a friend. Decked out with a tv playing music videos. :)
It was nice visiting with out of town family and friends like my grandmas from Colorado and Missouri, my aunt/uncle/cousin from Virginia, my uncle from Oregon and my other aunt/uncle from Idaho/Montana and my mom's good friend from California. Even though it was a short visit it was fun to see everyone!
Also, a very happy 28th birthday to Colin! His birthday was the same day as the wedding so he got a giant celebration!
Here are a few pics of the rehearsal, wedding prep and actual wedding...Enjoy! We sure did!
