10 Years

Today my hubby and I are “celebrating” our 10th Wedding Anniversary. And by that I mean we are not celebrating at all. We wanted to sleep in, but our bosses said “No way!”. I thought breakfast in bed would be nice, but neither of us volunteered (because we’re selfish) and our kids are still too young to cook unsupervised. We had big plans to go out later but our babysitter (my mother-in-law) threw her back out and now we can’t go anywhere.
Seriously, that trip to the movies we were going to take took us 10 years to plan and now…nothing.
We probably won’t even shower today.

Time, she is not kind…
(Okay, well, my hubby actually looks great in that picture because he didn’t understand that I was going for the tired, beat-down look. Hmpf.)

In loving memory of the young couple that used sleep in and leave the house whenever they wanted, here’s a look back…

Here’s a peek at our fancy-schmancy wedding…

…and if that wasn’t enough you can see more wedding details on my other blog!

I actually convinced hubby to make some vlogs with me (it took a lot of crying and manipulation).
Here’s the first episode where we talk about our first anniversary.

…and here’s the second episode where we talk about our first date.

Awkward first date

You have a lot more to look forward to like us talking about weird quirks we each have. It’s going to require some serious editing so maybe I’ll have those posted before our 11th anniversary (nope). In the meantime you can read about how we met here and here

Over on my Coolest Family on the Block Facebook Page I’m posting something “us” related once an hour for 10 hours. But for you, I’m just putting everything in one place. I’ve already linked to half of them above, but I’m going to list them again in the name of excess.
You are welcome!

Because this blog post counts as 10.
Shut up, it does.

I Make Myself the Queen is an itty-bitty newborn blog. Please be gentle with it, wash your
hands before touching it, and be sure to come back often to tell it how cute it is!

  1. No wonder you made yourself the queen! You looked quite royal at your wedding. Haven’t checked all the links yet, though I thank you for providing. Happy 10th Anniversary! Sorry you’re stuck at home, smelly and all.


    • Thanks, Laurie 🙂 The kids went CRAZY today, so it would’ve been nice to get out of the house, but we survived.

      (FYI, the link in your name to your blog isn’t working. It seems as though your old url is already redirecting to your new site, so you can use either one to link up, but not both at the same time.)


  2. Congratulations! What a beautiful couple you make!
    I love seeing all the fashion evolution in your photo montage. 😉
    And that video? So pretty! You were like a princess!


    • Thanks, Janice! My mother did horrible things to my hair when I was a child. 😉

      We had a horse and carriage at the wedding and it actually rode down the street and I heard a little girl say, “Look Mommy, it’s Cinderella!” Best moment ever! 🙂


Speak, peasant! (err, Comment, please)
