After 11 years as our head of security, Bosco informed us of his resignation earlier today. While it will be hard to find a match for his top-notch security, we’re so excited to watch him take on his new role of big brother!!
❤ BABY CULLEN ARRIVING MARCH 2017!!!❤
I know it has been forever since I posted, but I just wanted to pop in and say hi (if anyone is still reading this little blog of mine).🙂 I have missed you guys!!
I feel like this summer has been non-stop with lots of exciting things that I will update you all on soon. After 10 months on the market, we received an offer on our house back in June but it fell through on the buyer’s side. Just recently we received another offer which we are excited about – everything is still in attorney review so nothing is set in stone yet. The only problem is that every house that we LOVED and wanted to buy has since been sold before we were able to sell our house. We are of course happy to finally have an offer but we also don’t want to have to settle on a house we aren’t totally in love with, so we’ll see!
It has been HOT in NJ. Fall cannot come fast enough!
This weekend Pat and I are going to see Kenny Chesney (woohoo!!!) and the next day we leave for vacation in Hilton Head, SC.
PS – Bosco wanted you all to know he is doing well and still very cute.🙂
I will check back in with you guys soon. Until then, have a great night / weekend / rest of the summer.🙂
So today is a very important day. The cutest little doggie in the world turns 11 today!!!!
That’s right, today is Bosco’s Birthday!!🙂
I am SO thankful every single day that 11 years ago I was somehow able to find the cutest dog in the world and make him mine. Even when he can be a bit high maintenance at times (read : quite often), he has such a little personality and makes every day better.
There are no words to express the amount of love I have for this cute little boy.🙂
can’t a dog just enjoy his long holiday weekend without the paparazzi in his face trying to get another picture??🙂
our weekend guests (my sister and Nick) showed up with these – YUM!!!!
what treat to eat first?? decisions decisions
Nick, my sister, and Pat about to run the Spring Lake Five
Pat, Amy, & Nick
Nutella stuffed French toast
grilled corn on the cob, grilled asparagus, marinated London broil, and macaroni and cheese was dinner
lots of hanging out on the deck
Patriotic (and delicious) cupcake cake
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.❤
hands-down the best dry shampoo that I ever used
OK, all clean. Now get me out of here – I have cookies to eat and naps to take!
after 278854670890 tries, this was the best selfie we could get🙂
Bosco had fun at Bark in the Park.
I love this guy.
out to dinner for Pat’s Birthday
morning walk with my boy
coffee, coffee, and more coffee – of both the hot and iced variety
Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more pictures (mostly of Bosco!).🙂
