ginger at home

warning: cheesy love stuff follows


last thursday, j and i celebrated 5 years of marriage. we dropped libby off at gg’s and headed out to get appetizers and see a movie. to my surprise, instead of appetizers, j surprised me by taking me to denny’s. denny’s? you ask. after j and i had been dating a bit j turned into a tightwad began to plan for our future and decided that we would try to only eat out with our car change (ie. whatever change we could scrounge between the two of us from either or sometimes, both cars). denny’s seemed to be where we always went after church on wed. we would gather up all the change and carry it inside, order water, and count up how much we had to eat on. sometimes it wasn’t much and sometimes it was more, we usually shared something. as we pulled into the parking lot j said “ok, look for change”. so i did. we didn’t find a whole lot… just a couple bucks, but just as i was telling myself that half a side of pancakes would do, he pulled a big handful of quarters out of his pocket that he gathered up from around the house before we left.


too funny. we had just enough. it was so fun, we laughed a lot while we counted it out on the table to pay the bill.


after we ate we went to see transformers…. i love the transformers! im such a nerd, i was literally bouncing with excitement when i heard optimus prime’s voice in the beginning of the movie. sweet.

j also got my rings resized as a gift but sadly, i am still too fat to wear them. baby weight is a killer!


i had such a great anniversary. sometimes i feel like we just met and are still falling in love. other times i can’t believe it has only been five years because i can’t remember what it was like to not be with you (or maybe i can and just don’t want to). thanks for loving me even though i am crazy.

    It was NOT cheesy or sick; it was romantic and delightful. We’ve been married something like
    forever, and I feel the same way! Just wait ’til Libby is rolling her eyes at you and saying things like, “EEeeeww, you guys are grossy gross!”
