I Can’t Believe It’s Been Five Years!

posted by Andrea | 06/30/2011

Today is Dave and my FIVE year anniversary!!

And even though our marriage is definitely not perfect {I assume none are} we truly are each other’s perfect match!

For example:

  • I really like to cook and bake. Dave really likes to eat, and he almost always does the dishes before I even ask.
  • I hate to iron. Dave is a master “ironer” and does all our ironing.
  • I don’t like driving. Dave loves to drive.
  • I really enjoy painting {which has come in handy with all our house projects}. Dave does not like painting, but is willing to tape for me if I ask.
  • I love details. Dave could care less about details.
  • I love to shop and find great deals. Dave would be thrilled if he never had to step foot in a mall for the rest of his life.
  • I like to rush through everything. Dave reads all the instructions, follows directions, and makes sure it’s done right.

But one of Dave’s best qualities {in my opinion} is his ability to lighten the mood…especially when I’m upset.

The other day, I was showing him the closet doors I had painted for our nursery. I expressed my disappointment that they didn’t look as nice as I wanted them too.

His response was, “Maybe they will look better with one more coat of paint”.

I complained that I had already done 2 coats of Kills primer and 2 coats of paint and I really didn’t want to spend any more time on yet another coat.

He could tell I was frustrated so he simply smiled and said, “Well then, I think the doors look just fine.” Then he winked and left the room. {and all of this was done with the dry sense of humor that both my husband and his dad share}

Seriously, how can you not love that!

Like I said…a perfect match :)

 

OK, now for a few pictures:

FIVE YEARS: This is just this past weekend at my cousin’s wedding {21 weeks pregnant!}

 

FOUR YEARS: A random picture after church.

 

THREE YEARS: A vacation to Traverse City and Mackinaw Island.

 

TWO YEARS: Hiking Mount Rainier in Washington State. {Yes, the mountain roads were really covered with snow in June!}

 

ONE YEAR: At a baseball game in Wisconsin — it was insanely hot in there.

 

ZERO YEARS: Our wedding day :)

 

Here’s to another 55 years {at least}!!

    Happy Anniversary!!! It’s our anniversary too!!! Only we have 5 years on you guys. It seems like only yesterday we were sneaking away to Dallas to be married and then off to Jamaica the next day. Our 10 years have flown by. We were just talking about that this morning…. We are so proud of what we have accomplished and how we continue to keep each other happy.

    Hope you have a great anniversary and many to come.

    Great post, Andrea! Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby. I love your hair cut {you wear it well} and you do NOT look 21 weeks pregnant!!! We are moving tomorrow and I will definitely take your advice about the DIY projects. I LOVE the Pottery Barn bathroom vanity. This is something similar to what I would like for my bathroom renovation. Do you mind me asking, who made it for you? Take care & enjoy the holiday weekend! Nicole Church

    Hey Nicole, congrats on your big move! That’s super exciting!

    My uncle made the bathroom vanity for us, but unfortunately, he will only make furniture for family {I told him he could have a great business in furniture, but he only wants to do it as a hobby!}

    Can’t wait to see some pics of the new house!
