9 years and counting

Nine years ago today the hubbby and I were married for time and all eternity in the Bountiful temple. The day was absolutely beautiful, in so many different ways. The weather was definitely perfect. But the best was being in the temple together with our family and friends. One cannot ask for anything better.
Here is a picture from our first date...when it all started:
I had a list. Yes, I did. It is sad to admit but I definitely had made a mental checklist of things I looked for in a future husband. Among other things, I wanted someone who took good care of their feet. Its true. I will spare myself (and the hubby) further embarrassment but I will also admit I wanted someone who could make me laugh. The hubby does that. He definitely can make me laugh like no one else. So the secret is out: the hubby is super funny and has really nice feet.
We knew it was meant to be when we saw this car, on our way out of the temple, in the parking lot:
And what a better way to celebrate our anniversary than to get P90X for each other. Nothing better than to look back and realize we are fat and desperately need to get in shape. Well, not only get fit but be healthy. Through thin and thick, literally, we still love each other, no matter what....with our sense of humor intact. That is a blessing.
