Happy Anniversary to... me!

12 years ago today, I met Rich. My funny story about this was that we were a blind date and that one of the questions I asked my friends was, "So, how tall is this guy?" When she answered me that he was something like 6'8", I didn't believe her, until I went to her house and saw a REALLY tall guy go running by in a pair of green umbro shorts and no shirt! I figured that must be him!

10 years ago today, I got really mad at Rich for being a big jerk. It was our anniversary, I got all dressed up, took a bus out to Worcester to meet him for the weekend (and dinner I figured) and he showed up in freaking shorts and a grubby shirt. He then told me that we needed to go back to his apartment before dinner. Well, we got there and he made my lug my heavy bag all the way upstairs to his apartment (in my heels!). Even after making it obvious that he should grab the bag, he ignored me and went into the apartment. He knew that I would go put the bag in his room so that his roommate didn't have to trip over it. Well, I walked into his room to see a huge vase of white roses and a sheet covering his bed, asking me to marry him.

9 years ago today, I married my best friend. Granted next year will be the real big milestone, but we have had a pretty good 9 years and I can't wait for more! (If only he would stop asking me about what the next car should be?)

I guess him coming home with a semi-expensive bottle of champagne trumps the chaotic day I had with the boys ;)
