5 Years

september 17, 2005.
our wedding day.
on that day, i could have never dreamed that i would be any happier than i was right then.
boy, was i wrong.
it may not seem like a long time to most people, but when i think about what the last 5 years have brought us, i couldn't be more proud of how we've stood by each other through it all. i love my husband with all of my heart and soul and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with this man.
(forgive me, but all pictures in this post are from either toby's phone or my phone)

did i mention that he treats me like a queen? my son greeted me on friday morning with this beautiful anniversary band in his hand and was so proud to give it to me. he helped poppa pick it out.

here is a better picture

then, i got these at work...
as if that wasn't more than enough, we left roman with aunt hettie on saturday and headed up to myrtle beach for the night. we hung out here most of the night...
kickin' back in an adirondack chair
looking up at this...
then, this was the view from our dinner table
the drinks, food and music was fabulous, the company was even better! i love you, babe! happy anniversary!

on another note, we have been experimenting with bribery. most of you know that we have a picky eater. well, our pediatrician suggested that we use a little reward system for when roman tries new things. we've done it twice so far and it has worked twice! i call that success. coming from a kid who really only eats about 10 different things...all in rotation.
we started with baked chicken, corn and biscuits. cream with sprinkles.
tonight, we had spaghetti and meatballs and bread. reward...m&ms (thanks aunt hettie)
i'm sure we will hit some roadblocks, but i am very optimistic. he hasn't eaten ground beef ever! before tonight. oh, and the best part is that he is all proud of himself. when i put him to bed tonight he said "i ate neepols (meatballs) and masketti (spaghetti) and bread!"
wish me luck.
