Our 5 Year Anniversary

On Saturday, June 7th, Seth and I celebrated our 5 Year Anniversary! I really cannot believe that it has been 5 really is going by so fast! We had originally planned to go back to Jamaica on our five year...but then our little surprise (JULES) happened, and so that is not possible just yet! We had a very different anniversary than that would have been, but we had a great time anyways!!! We got up and went grocery shopping...and while there, we both realized that we needed to get an anniversary card for the other one! NICE!!! We ended up taking turns walking around with the girls while the other shopped for a card! I guess this is just what happens when you have two small babies and you don't get out much (like me)!!!! It was funny and we had a nice laugh at that. We then spent the rest of the day at our neighborhood pool as a family! Anyone that knows Seth and Me, knows that a day at the pool is what we would want to do over just about anything else! That night, my parents came to watch both girls and Seth and I went to a very nice restaurant in downtown Dallas! It was my first time away from Jules, and our very first date since the baby was born! We had a great time being adults that night and going out...just like the good ole days! (THANKS Mom and Dad for letting us get out alone! You are the best!!!)

Seth even surprised me with a BEAUTIFUL diamond bracelet! It is so fabulous and I just can't quit staring at it. Seth is such a good gift giver...always has been!

Anyway, I won't get all mushy on my blog...that really isn't my style. I do just want to say that I am very lucky to be married to my best friend. We have been through so much in our five years and it has been so much fun since we got to do it together! I really look forward to all of the fun times and experiences that we will get to go through together over the next 45 years! (Our goal is just to make it to 50!...I kid!)

Here are some pictures of Seth and I through the 7 years that we have been together!

Seth and I when we first started dating in May 2001

We went camping with a bunch of friends...I always loved this picture (courtesy of Matthew Gordon Lawrence)

Our first Halloween together 2001...we love dress up parties. (If only you could see what Parrish, Matt, and Dave had on this year...those were some good looking boys!!!)

We threw an ALL GREEN St. Patricks day party 2002

Seth surprised me on our one year (DATING) anniversary and flew to Dallas to see me! One of the only times I have actually been surprised...he did a great job!! He was standing at the front door and I knew it was him because I could see this Grateful Dead t-shirt that he had on through the distorted glass of my parent's front door. It was his favorite shirt! Well, of course...and that Arkansas hat!

The night we got engaged...on a cruise with my family...Christmas Eve 2002. This is right before Seth popped the question! He was sweating all night! HA!

Our rehearsal dinner...we look so young!

The BIG day

Honeymoon in Jamaica...that was the life! We had SOOOOOOOO much fun there!

Seth's 25th birthday June 2005

The day before I had Jillian in June 2006. I AM HUGE!!! I am one of those NOT-ATTRACTIVE pregnant people! Seeing a picture of me pregnant is rare, so enjoy!

Our little family of 3! July 4, 2006

August 2007...I am actually about 1 week pregnant with Jules...and we had no idea! Jillian looks like she may have heard there might be another bun in the oven, though. She sure doesn't look excited about it!

Our little family of 4! WE are so blessed!

Wow I just loved reading that and looking at yall over the years! I am so happy to have been there when you guys started dating. It is almost weird to think that was so long ago! Geez.
