Happy 5th Anniversary, Chad!

On Saturday, June 26th, Chad and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary!  It's crazy to think that 5 years have already gone by since we were in Vegas at the Bellagio with our family and friends!!  At the same time, we have been together for almost 11 years...how wild is that?  I have a few friends that are getting married this summer or soon and it's fun to remember what it was like to be a fiance and to plan a wedding.  I thought I would be sad when the wedding was over but I don't miss being engaged one bit.  I absolutely without no hesitation can say I am so happy to be where I am in my life.

My parents took Jordan for the weekend so we could hang out together.  I'm glad we were able to spend a few days just the two of us before our family changes and becomes a family of four!  It was nice to go out to eat, see a movie, shop, and just relax with each other.  We talked about how much we love Jordan and how he's going to be a big brother.  We talked about the new baby and how we can't wait to meet him or her.  What is he/she going to look like?  Are we 100% sure about the names we have chosen?  (Speaking of which, it's scary to know we've kept our names secret for this whole entire time and to know soon we'll share the name with everyone and you never know what comments people are going to make...come to think of it, I think we talked more about that than the names themselves...we're worried about what people are going to say!  Sad, isn't it?  In the end, I suggested Chad tell everyone they don't need to comment on or question the name but just say the baby is so cute and leave it at that!)

See our beautiful cake?!?!  My cousin, Silvia, made it for us!  When we were married and had our reception in Vegas we didn't have an actual wedding cake.  We had dessert at the reception and Chad and I fed each other yummy chocolate cake from the bakery at Bellagio, but we decided not to have an actual big wedding cake.  We did look at cakes and there was a cake from a bakery out in Vegas that we would have picked...and that's what Silvia made!  It turned out so cute and tasted yummy, too!  It was my surprise to Chad!

Speaking of Chad, I am so thankful to have him in my life and to be able to call him all mine!!!  I remember when I caught a glimpse of him in the dorms and thought he was so cute.  He's only gotten hotter as the years have gone on.  I'm 39 weeks pregnant and everything drives me up the wall and I have absolutely no patience but he's still a great hubby and father no matter what.  We have fun with each other and I know he's always there for me no matter what.  I love knowing I married my very best friend.
