Dinner Date, a toast to the next 3 years!

Monday is our 3 year anniversary! Unbelievable! I can't believe that it has been 3 years already! I remember listening to my friend in New York tell me how she had been married for 3 years and thinking to myself "Man! That is a LONG time in the future!" (this was right after Kris and I got married). And now. . . here we are. I look at all the ways Kris and I have grown and how much more I love him now. I fall in love with him more and more everyday. I look at how dedicated he is to making our family work, and making his girls happy, those little things he does that lets me know how much he cares, it all blows me away. I wouldn't trade him for the world, and I can't wait for the next 3 years, and for the rest of forever to spend laughing and crying with my best friend.

Over the past 3 years (I know, compared to some, 3 years is a drop in the bucket), I have learned so much about what it takes to make a happy home. I've learned that a husband does not need much to be happy. Love, encouragement, . . . ahem. . . , and a good homecooked meal. As a female, I know that women can get crazy sometimes, and I have had to let go of a lot of my "feminist" mindframes I didn't even know I had. I have learned a lot, and I still have a lot to learn.

So. . . to celebrate our 3 years, Kris and I had a wonderful dinner date on Thursday night. We went to an Italian restaurant at Red Rock Casino, in part, it was an evening away from my daily salad routine, and I got to eat bread and pasta! I was loving it! Mmmmm, so good. After dinner, we went out to the car, and it was our favorite part of the evening. . .dusk. So, we just hung around and had a little impromtu photo shoot. It was so fun! I felt like a I was dating again! It felt really good to just be able to laugh and be silly with Kris, we never get to do that anymore.

And now, for the pictures. . .

Awwwww! Aren't we a cute couple?!

We are just a riot aren't we? I have no idea what we're doing here.
Shocked? So were we!

The happy couple. Love the sunset in the background :)
Oh! And, last week, my shins were KILLING me! I got on the treadmill and had gone for about a mile and a half, and my shins started throbbing, I was actually limping while I was running. I didn't think that I should continue doing that, so I got off and rubbed the daylights out of my shin bones. OUCH! I was out for the rest of the week pretty much, but I'm hoping that I can start back up tomorrow, perhaps with the help of my new running sneakers :)

Have a good night!

Yay! Congrats on three years! Being married is so wonderful. Other people don't know what they're missing. I hope your new running shoes help. Good running shoes make a big difference ;-)
