So as the title of my post suggests, today Pat and I celebrate our 10 year Anniversary.
I wrote this poem for Pat a few years back, and because I know I will never be able to come up with such a literary masterpiece again, I am going to share it again this year (with just a few updates).
**HAPPY 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO US**
On this day, we said “I Do”
10 years later, you still tell me that girls aren’t supposed to poo.
You asked me to marry you on a rainy day in December.
To this day, it is one I will always remember.
When it comes to breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you know to not expect too much from me
You dusting, vacuuming, or cleaning … all things my eyes have yet to see.
You like going to the beach and spending hours in the sun
I find getting my nails done to be fun.
We met at our former place of employment
The lazy river in Aruba has provided us much enjoyment
Several years ago, my car was hit by a deer
You once paid me $5 just to drink a beer.
I often ask you to rub my feet
You get mad when I play songs on repeat.
We like going on vacation, to the movies, and to a concert or two
We’ve seen Van Halen, Motley Crue, Billy Joel, and Kenny Chesney, just to name a few.
We both think Bosco is the cutest thing we have ever seen
You’ll be sure to sound the alarm if your food is touched by a bean.
Baseball, Miller Lite, and Skiing .. these are some of your favorite things
You tell me I have too much jewelry and won’t buy me any more rings.
When Doritos are near, you like to stuff your face
I can eat Orange Tic-Tacs by the case.
You’re smart, sexy, and more recently, a very good runner.
One thing you are not though hunny, is Mr. Fix-it or a plumber.
When we get back from a bike ride, we know there will be a race to the house
I once called you screaming when I was in the basement and saw a mouse.
When you wear your glasses, you look just like your brother
You often tell me quotes once said by your mother.
I like to make fun of you for being 10 years older
In the summer, you get mad when I turn the thermostat much colder.
You have always treated my family like they were your own
We both have 10000 pictures of Bosco on our phone.
When I ask you to take me on a long ride, I don’t give you much of a choice
When your singing annoys me, I threaten to post a video of your Bon Jovi voice.
Since we’ve been together, I’ve had many shades of hair
Inside a house in your hometown, there once lived a bear.
We both recently developed a love of country music and even bought our own cowboy hat
Bosco was very upset when he learned you once owned a cat.
Twelve years worth of memories – from Bahamas, San Diego, Key West, Aruba, and of course the NJ shore
Swimming with dolphins, holding baby tigers, and listing our house on the market…can’t wait to make so many more!
I love you, Sexy Husband (of 10 years) Boy.❤
