25 years

25 years married.

Pretty amazing since we were 17 and 18 years old,

the priest that married us said we would be divorced in less than 6 months.

25 years later and here are 25 things that you may or may not know about me

1 - I love my 3 wonderful children more than anything
2 - I adore my loving, caring best friend (my husband)
It's okay John already knows I have and will always put the kids ahead of him, he understands!!
3 - As fast as this little girl came into my life, as scary as the first few hours were, as confused as I was, the many tears I cried.... she is my breath of fresh air and I need to see her almost everyday for my big hug and that excitement she has in her voice when she screams "Gwaaama".... My Elly girl
4 - We have a wonderful son-in-law who continues to make us proud
5 - My favorite candy bar is TWIX
6 - I love the McDonalds Southwest Salad with the Southwest Dressing and now they discontinued it...... URGHHHH
7 - Rearranging the livingroom furniture makes me feel good
8 - When John sweeps and vacuums the floors before I get home from work I feel happy
9 - I love my laptop and wireless high speed Internet, John probably doesn't
10 - Grey's Anatomy is my favorite show followed by The Biggest Loser
11 - I don't like receiving gifts but I love to give them
12 - I love Mountain Dew but I know I shouldn't
13 - I am such a creature of habit every morning while getting up, getting ready for work, leaving for work, getting to work, turning on my computer, getting my soda, checking my e-mail and then the rest of the day I'm okay for anything in any order.... if one of my habits cannot be done I'm very thrown off. strange huh?
14 - Bottles of shampoo and conditioner drive me crazy.... the pretty colors, the shapes, the names. I can now control myself not to buy them because of these marketing traps but years ago the shower was full of pretty bottles but the product was crap
15 - I get instantly crabby walking into a house full of dirty dishes
16 - I love to snuggle John's side of the bed when he has to get up and go to work
17 - My food can't touch....I know you all know this one but I had to mention it
18 - I lost my mother before I got to know her very well
19 - My hobbies are gardening, scrapbooking and taking pictures
20 - Decorating magazines are one of my weaknesses
21 - I joined a gym and love it
22 - I don't decorate my house very much anymore for the holidays and I don't know why
23 - My favorite time of the year is the hot summer days, working outside with the radio loud enough to hear wherever you are, taking 3:00 break on the porch and ending the day with a fire in the pit and our bodies too sore to move.... yeah I love that!
24 - I can't eat shrimp anymore and I know they had nothing to do with my appendix attack
25 - I got 1 huge bouquet of roses and some tasty chocolates from the most wonderful man in my life....

What a wonderful surprise.

And of course I had to play with some of the pictures. I like this one

And the chocolates... didn't I mention the gym. I guess another 20 minutes on the treadmill for each piece, but they are so worth it.

25 years - Life is Good
