Three Years Ago Today...

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of our First Date! It started as "just one happy hour drink" and turned into seven hours of crazy fun! Basically, we got tipsy and ran around Capitol Hill in Seattle. We also started our little tradition of photo booth pictures, of which we have now collected more than thirty! If you had told me three years ago that I would be married to this guy now, I don't know if I would've believed you.

Anyway, that, above, is our first ever photo booth strip that we took together, on said first date. Documented on the back is the quote that started it all, "There's a photo booth here, take pictures with me," at Cha Cha Lounge on Pike Place, February 24th, 2009.

We've taken a few more since then, each with their own quote and location, from New York to Portland. We were going to display them at the photo booth that we rented for our wedding, but decided against it--they are too precious to expose to the natural Hawaiian beach elements. We'll probably have them framed or put in a photo album at some point. I love reminiscing and looking through them.

From there, we went on a string of dates, each more exciting and crazy than the last. It was like Brett was in competition with himself to outdo the last one! He even kept a log of where we went and what we did so that there were no repeats.

My favorite might be number 9: a date that lasted from 9 in the morning until midnight! But you know they were all amazing! Falling in love with Husband was so easy. He even once romanced me while he had the flu, dressed up in bow tie and suspenders with a wad of Kleenex in his pocket! Thank you, honey, you certainly swept me off my feet (minus the boxing class, LOL!)! And if you think it's weird that he recorded all of our dates, you should see the records he kept leading up to the Proposal or our wedding spreadsheet. Talk about OCD!

So, that's how I ended up with B! We certainly had a fun and highly misadventured courtship. I feel so blessed to have found someone that keeps me young and with whom I can laugh, cry, and be myself with. 

Yes, I am indeed lucky that Brett's vows included never having any "What-if's" and he is determined to take me on as many mischevious journeys as he possibly can!
And how can you NOT have (mis)adventures with this guy:
Stole that from his Facebook page. This was at a St. Patty's Day Dash, pre-Erin, by the way.

I do wish you the very happiest and misadventured weekend of your own! Cheers!
