Status Update for 2/15/09

If you follow Facebook you know things have been changing lately.
One week it's "throw back" week, the next it's "sibling week" etc.
So this week, in honor of Valentines day, was
"how long have you and your hubby been together" week.

So, here was my status for today:

7 years ago today hubby and I went on our 1st date. We were engaged on July 23, 2003 and married on Dec. 6, 2003. 7 years and 5 babies later we're still in love! ♥

And here is the pic I included....

This was pre-digital so pardon the blur... getting these pics transferred to something I can use is a challenge I'm not ready to take.

(Even with the blur you can see I was tanner, thinner and blonder. 5 babies can wreak havoc on a girl!)
Yes, 7 years ago tonight this wonderful journey started! Who knew it would be this great?!? We might be sleepy and stained with some baby related something, but we're happy and that's what matters.
Love you hubby! I can't wait to see what the next 7 years holds in store for us!!!
