You see - on Oct 14th I celebrate a milestone 15 years of marriage to my wonderful and devoted man... this is an event worthy of a post pointing out all of his good traits and ignoring each and every time he has put the toilet paper roll on upside down (and in case you didn't know, it should roll off the top)...
HOWEVER - besides being such a personally thrilling date, the ladies over at The Secret is in The Sauce have chosen this date for their own fun purposes. If you don't know anything about this website it is a tremendous way to waste time because they have created a little SiTS-erhood of bloggers that check in daily to see who's being featured (and hoping to win a monthly prize). I was completely sucked in when they were giving away the Cricut Expressions and somehow stuck with it even when I didn't win (mope, mope, mope...). Anyway - they link to all sorts of fun and witty people and sometimes I find some great stuff out there in return for my 3 minutes of stopping by. I say "fun and witty" because they were nice enough to send a pile of readers my way recently and they must have some standards right? (yes Meg - that was when you commented on all the "saucy" comments I was getting)
SO, back to my dilemma - I could go on and on and gush about my wonder-hubby and how we met (a parking lot - though we like to tell a variety of more interesting stories) and how long we dated (about a year)... or I could post about this Blog-a-Thon they're doing over at SITS in the hopes that I could win one of the hourly prizes?
Do I inundate everyone with multiple pictures of Q making me applesauce cookies when I beat him in a "who can get more tan while T is in Mexico and Q is in Utah during the month of March" contest and our wedding reception (holy early 90's hair - you're missing out!) Or, do I link to these 5 fun people I have found through SITS?
Ronnica - 'cause she has a cool name is my only link to Kansas.
Gingela - even though she has dogs - I'm not allergic to them over the internet apparently.
P.I.M.P - No, that's not her name... you'll figure it out when you click! My frugal guru.
Tina - even though she likes the Utes - she's still okay in my book
& Yaya - because although I am a funny blog junkie - she made me cry last week - a well written touching blog is important once in awhile too!
Now I am feeling bad that I didn't do more... but I'll post links just for fun someday so that nobody feels left out.
Well - it looks like you'll have to check back next year for photos of that dress that my blood, sweat and tears went into making. Oh, and my mom's blood, sweat and tears, and my neighbor's more skilled serger and sweat (pretty sure she didn't bleed or cry). Thanks Cheree... couldn't have done it without you... Instead of telling you my 100 top things about the love of my life I've sold my soul to the Leopard Printed Devils over at SITS! Hubby's sisters are probably relieved to not have to read all of that anyway - but I promise, it doesn't matter what they're giving away - if next years' blog-a-thon happens to fall on our anniversary, I'll concentrate on you instead :)
(do you think they'll disqualify me for calling them leopard printed devils? Oh well, it's worth the risk right?)
