5 Years

In August of 2005 I headed out to Nashville, TN with my sister Kati to see Jason for a week. I had a hunch something might happen that week, since Jason and I had been talking about him moving out to Seattle once we were engaged. I just didn't know exactly when and where he might propose.
Earlier in the week before my sister Kati had left town, we got some great pictures of the two of us out at Steeplechase, dancing outside the Grand Ole Opry, smooching outside The Loveless Cafe and snuggling over the Harpeth River. I'm SO glad we got these taken because it is a week that I will cherish forever.
5 years ago today (has it already been 5 years?!!), Jason asked me to marry him on top of the Shelby Street Bridgein downtown Nashville over the Cumberland River after a romantic dinner at Mortons Steakhouse. He proposed with his grandmother's wedding ring and the evening was perfect in every way. Wellll....except for maybe the horrible putrid smell that we had to avoid by crossing over the bridge the first time and then coming back when it had passed :-) Now we get a good laugh of how I made him cross over to the other side of the bridge just when he was about to propose because I was about to gag from the stench! But we got some great pictures out of that little diversion and this one of Jason with the flowers, is really one of my favorites!

I love you baby! And I am beyond blessed to be married to the hardest working man I've ever known. You continue to sacrifice and work unbelievably hard to make our dreams come true and I love you for the husband you've been to me. Thank you for 5 wonderful years since asking me to be yours :-) You will always be my dreaming buddy, best friend and love of my life.

Freakin Loved It!

SO I'll admit it, I'm a shameless fan of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor! And last night I was beyond thrilled to watch the season finale to see if Ali would choose either Roberto or Chris, both class-A guys.

And seriously, it was the most perfect season finale EVER. Loved every minute of it!!

Roberto is so dreamy and in the After the Final Rose show, he mentioned how he & Ali would watch movies together over the phone and I got all warm & fuzzy remembering that that is what Jason and I did when we were dating long distance ;-)

And when Ali broke it off with Chris N, yup, I admit it - total tears. What an awesome guy too - I hope they make him the next Bachelor!!

In other news - we have a bit of a mouse problem in our back yard. Yeah, awesomeness. And last night when I was calling the boys in from outside I saw something dangling from Jeep's mouth. It was pretty dark by this time so I couldn't see what it was quite clearly and he put it down for a minute. When he looked back to pick it back up, it was no longer there. UH YIKES. That's when I decided it would be a good time to get back in the house. NASTY. So I get the boys in the house and notice that Jeep has blood on his front legs, and that's about the moment that I almost gagged. Fun times oh yes. We have some traps we'll be putting out tonight....duh, dun dun be continued.
