6 years in the Making

This weekend Hubby and I will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary.

We don't have any special plans, but I don't think we need any.

We know why this day is special, so we don't really need a fancy dinner or a weekend away to celebrate (not that it wouldn't be nice).

But we are taking the dudes to Hershey Park today. Woohoo!

And, our marriage is a lot about our dudes (not entirely, but a lot).

#1 was actually at our wedding (not sure how I'm going to explain that).

He was looking all cute, and chubby, and baby like.

And, you know. The more I look at all of these wedding pictures, the less happy I am with my wedding photographer. Guess it's my more critical eye, because I recall being very pleased with his work when I first got these.

But, I did love my dress.

As a matter of fact, I still have that thing.

Very nicely preserved in a coffin box (sorry, but the box really does look like a coffin).

I didn't know what to do with it at the time, and silly me, I thought I'd have a daughter to pawn it off on one day. Not that I would have made her wear it, but I just had visions of her playing in it at least.

I guess it's just attic junk, now.

There's no way any of my sons will be wearing it (even if they want to, it's not an option), and I'd die before I would be one of those mother-in-laws-to-be that tried to force my old crap onto my daughter-in-law-to-be.

So, now it's just something I trip over a couple of times a year while moving the Cristmas stuff in and out of the attic.

But, it sure was cute.

Not that it prevented me from looking a bit like Miss Piggy on her wedding day.

But, you know, it did the trick:)

your wedding pictures are beautiful. I loathe mine. I weighed about 100lbs more than I do now and they're awful. and my tent, um I mean dress, is somewhere in the house. not in a special keepsake box either.
I'm loving your blog!

Miss Piggy?? You're nuts.

Hang onto the dress. Maybe a future daughter-in-law will WANT to wear it.

Stranger things have happened!

Happy anniversary! I think you look beautiful! The dress is beautiful, so it's no wonder you couldn't throw it out. I guess that's how brides are.

Zeemaid said...

Happy Anniversary! You were a lovely bride. Miss Piggy? I think not.

Who knows maybe a dIL will want it one day... or even a granddaughter down the road. I sure wish my mom had a proper wedding dress to hand down. Her's was a blue suit and it's long gone. Not sure why she went for blue... they were very poor. :)

Bust that puppy out and parade in it.

I did.


My friend hands out halloween candy in hers each year.

I would scare the children away with my back fat. But .. alas.

Still fun to put on!
