14 Years and Counting!

We celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and you know I had to pull out my wedding dress! I horrified my kids by running around the back yard in it for a bit.

They grabbed the camera, so this is what I look like explaining how to work the camera...while in a wedding dress:



This is what I look like jumping around in the back yard...in a wedding dress:



My 9 year old decided to recreate one of our wedding photos. We were inspired by the Young Me Now Me website.

THEN:



NOW:



I started to plan our annual watching of the Wedding Video only to realize our last household VCR croaked this year, and my video is on VHS! Note: need to copy that video onto DVD!

We all went out for Italian and played Frisbee in the yard instead.

We exchanged cards and laughed when we realized we had bought each other the husband/wife version of the same card!



Good times. Ready to begin another year of wedded bliss :)

  6. Thanks for starting my day with a smile!! I was just telling my some family members about this crazy lady I met on the internet who dons her wedding dress on her anniversary and prances around the neighborhood. First they looked at me in a strange way, then they smiled and secretly wished they could do the same ;-)
    You rock girl!!!!

    proud to call you friend,
    Janet

  7. Happy Anniversary! I remember last year's photo. I will say, though, that he should have put on a tux. :)

  9. those pics are oh -so-awesome! congrats!!

    you know, my 5 yr old son really likes to look at our wedding photos and comments often on how much he likes my dress - he tells me he wants the girl he marries to wear it - HA - we'll see how that one goes over....

  10. That is AWESOME! I haven't tried my dress on because I know that I'll just cry when it doesn't button up the back. Oh, well. That's what having four kids will do to you. Totally worth it!

    Congrats on 14 years! I love hearing successful marriage stories! There are so few of them these days...

  11. You were a beautiful bride then and now. I love the idea of watching the wedding video on your anniversary. Mine is in a couple of weeks. I'll have to dust off the old video. I actually still have a working VCR!

    Happy Anniversary!

  12. Happy Anniversary! 14 years---thats awesome :). My friend is a wedding photog and "wreck the dress" sessions are huge now! They go out after the wedding and take all of the fun photos that you wouldn't dare on your wedding day :)

  13. Congrats! We celebrated our 13th on Memorial Day. Our daughter had to go to school (snow make up day) so I volunteered in her class, then my husband and son came to eat lunch with us. We picked her up later and we all went to the park for a picnic, then out for ice cream. My dress is in a box somewhere, preserved for who-knows-what! Awesome that you can still wear yours!

  14. Holy goodness gracious! You still fit in your dress (and looked good!!). I am impressed. The only way I would fit in my wedding dress would involve some clothes pins and duct tape. Lots and lots of duct tape. :)

  17. That is so cute. Congrats on 14 years.

    I sold my dress. Now I regret it. Not that I could still fit in it, but I still regret it.

  18. We can't watch our wedding video without laughing hysterically! It's always so awkward to watch yourself on video, or is that just me?!?

    Happy Anniversary!!!! It speaks volumes about your relationship that you even buy similar anniv. cards!! Too cute!

  25. Happy Anny to you two! Wow, I wish I could still fit in my wedding dress. I'm only two years out and I don't stand a freaking chance!

    LOVE the photo shoot!

  26. How sweet you both bought the same card. That says something in itself. Happy Anniversary. Gorgeous gown.

  27. Congratulations on 14 years!! I think my dress is at my Mom's makes me wonder if I would still fit in it.

    I love that you both bought the same card, Happy Anniversary!!

  30. Congrats not only on the anniversary but also on the fact that you still fit your dress 14 years later!

    I wish I could try mine on again (we celebrate our 3rd this October), but I had it preserved and in a box because my mother-in-law and sister-in-law designed and made it for me so I'm hoping to at least pass the fabric down to our daughter to use how she wants.

  31. I think it's awesome that it still looks just as amazing on you! I don't think I could even begin to zip mine up and it's only been 3 years. Darn baby widened my hips. HA!

  32. You're so cute I can barely stand it. Congrats on 14 years!

    ReplyDelete
  33. You both look amazing! You look just the same even!

  34. Congratulations! And I enjoyed the "then and now" pictures.

    LOL, we do the same thing - watch our wedding highlights video every year on our anniversary. And ours is on VHS too - that is truly the only reason we still have a VCR. The good news for you is that you can pick one up cheap these days. But you're right; both of us should get those transferred to DVD.
