This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage

 I can't believe it has been 10 years already! For those trying to do the math, yes I got married when I was 16 and Nick was 21. We got married for no reason other than we were in love and wanted to start our life together! We have overcome a lot of obstacles and learned a lot of life lessons...but we made it thru everything and came out stronger than ever before. We know we are each other's soulmate and we look forward to spending the rest of our lives together.

You can't celebrate without pretty nails, so the first thing I did Monday was white and silver french tip with glitter.

I only worked Tuesday and Wednesday last week, and requested the rest off for celebrations! Thursday the 17th was our actual anniversary and I had booked a night at the Lindley House Cottages in Duncan. My mom watched Brad overnight for the first time and he had a fun time.

We rented the Rose Cottage. There was a stained glass rose on the front door, and a fresh red rose on the table inside to greet us!

We unpacked and got dressed up for dinner at Giuseppe's in Marlow. We got to meet the manager and the owner who both congratulated us on our special anniversary.

We spent the evening enjoying the jacuzzi tub, champagne, and relaxing. Our breakfast was delivered in the morning and consisted of french toast, eggs, bacon, apricot crumble, orange juice and coffee.

We picked up Brad from my mom's on Friday then spent the day finishing the trim on our floors. Saturday evening was our dinner party and we were going to take Brad to the daycare for it, but Nick's parents offered to take him out to their house for the night! They picked him up in the afternoon and we spent the rest of the day picking up the food and getting the house ready for guests.

I picked our beautiful cake up from our local bakery and they made it just the way I wanted!

I found the guest book from our wedding, and I used it again for the guests to sign at the party.


I believe all together we had 14 guests (not everyone is pictured). We had Johnny Carino's cater penne alfredo, chicken parmigiana, and spaghetti. I made a salad to go with it, orange creamsicle punch, and champagne. After everyone ate, Nick and I had secretly prepared a song to preform for the guests, "The Only Exception" by Paramore. After the song, we cut the cake then enjoyed spending time with our friends and family.

Our niece's birthday was Sunday so we drove out to Foster for that and were going to pick Brad up but his grandparents begged to keep him one more night. So we got to enjoy a total of 3 nights alone! We both had a wonderful weekend celebrating our love and couldn't have asked for anything better.
