3 years and counting

(My squinty eye problem is getting out of control.)

Happy Anniversary!

I can't believe I've been married for 3 years...I further more can't believe I graduated college 2 years ago, am well into my career, and have a CHILD.

When did I grow up?

It's been a good 3 years though. A LOT has changed since we first got married. Everyone says the first year or so of marriage is the hardest, but it wasn't. Sometimes I think it's so funny looking back to when we were dating, and we'd stay up all hours of the night just to "talk" or go on a walk or something. Now, three years later, going to bed at 9:30 is a lot more desirable. Not necessarily more desirable than "talking," don't get me wrong, I love a good chat. I mean it's a lot more desirable than like 3am, which is when I'd usually crawl into bed in my college years.

Allow me to illustrate. It's 8:00 and James is asleep on the couch with Jillian snoozing on his chest, and I'm on the other couch with the TV on for background noise, blogging. :-) And the rest of the night will probably go as such: Jillian will wake up one more time before she's out for the night and be so restless and wiggly one of us will have to vigorously bounce her until she conks out again, I'll get a bubble bath, go to bed around 10:00, and James and his nocturnal like ways will probably stay up until about 1 am. The only time I'm gettin' up at 3am for ANYTHING these days is if my house is on fire, or Jillian is demanding to be fed (frequently the latter).

I asked James what he thought our greatest accomplishment was after being married for three years, and he said Jillian. I'd agree. I'm still baffled by the fact that we created a HUMAN BEING. Not only that, but we figured out all her little issues. A LOT of little issues in not a very long period of time, relatively speaking.

Twizzler bouquet.

Real bouquet.

So how did we celebrate?


My mom watched Jillian overnight and we went out to Cheesecake Factory (delish) and stayed at a hotel in Salt Lake. I even got to take Nyquil, which made sleeping in that much better. I did actually have a cold...I'm not just like a Nyquil junkie...anymore...ahem.......

Although I did wake up slightly groggy and try working out in my head who would go downstairs and get us breakfast and who would stay in the room and watch Jillian...I forgot she wasn't there.

Then we got a couples massage. Excellent.

("Hold 3 fingers up for 3 years!")..Yes, I'm that cheesy.

Overall, life has changed a LOT. For the better. Definitely for the better. I wonder where we'll be in the next 3 years? Hopefully I'll be a retired teacher ;-) or at least doing online teaching, Jillian will be THREE (wwhhaa???) and we'll probably have another kid, if not then one on the way. WOWZAS. Cheers to us.
