It is hard to believe that 9 years ago today, Pat and I said I do.
I wrote this little poem for Pat for our Anniversary last year. Since I know I am not capable to creating such a great literary masterpiece more than once, I will just share it again this year. 🙂
**HAPPY 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO US**
On this day, we said “I Do”
9 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.
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.
Eleven years worth of memories – from Bahamas, Key West, Aruba, and of course the NJ shore
Cubby, Jake, & our man Bosco…can’t wait to make so many more!
I love you, Sexy Husband (of 9 years) Boy.
Happy Anniversary, Pat!!! XOXO
