He's Coming...

...and I'm going!! My amazing husband bought me tickets to see Paul McCartney!! As I am sure you all know, I'm a HUGE Beatles fan and could never pass up the opportunity to see one of them in concert. I'm so excited!

Every night when I get home from work Moxley jumps up and sits on my lap. But she doesn't just sit like a normal dog. She sits up like a person, leans her head into my shoulder and has me scratch her back. And when I'm done she gives me a kiss on the nose, jumps down and goes about her business. It usually only lasts about 5 minutes or so, but I seriously love these moments. It's one of the highlights of my day. Just our special time together. It reminds me of the unconditional love animals give. They don't care about the things that you may have done or said. They love you anyway. No matter what. We are so lucky to have her.

Five years ago on 05/05/05 I married the greatest man in the world. I'm sure we all say that about our husbands but I'm certain that I've really got him. Sorry ladies :)

This year for our 5 year anniversary I decided I would post 5 things that I love about Taylor. Of course I have way more than 5 but I don't want to get too carried away or you all could be reading this post for days.

1. Taylor can always make me laugh. Even when I'm mad I can't stay mad for long because he always gets me laughing and smiling. He keeps the mood in our home light and fun even on the grouchiest days.

2. I love our history. I love that we can talk about times when we used to ride our bikes and play house when we were kids. If we only knew then that someday we would be playing house for real!

3. I love that all he has to do is pull me in and snuggle me against him and all the problems in the world just melt away. Nothing makes me feel more safe.

4. I love his infectious laugh. Any one who knows Taylor will tell you that when he starts laughing you can help but start laughing too. Even if what he is laughing at isn't really that funny :)

5. Most of all I love how he tells me and Moxley every night "I love my little family." I know that he loves us more than anything. The way that his face lights up when we talk about expanding our "little family" makes me excited about what our future holds.

Tay - I love you more and more every day. The last 5 years have been so crazy, but so amazing too. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Happy Anniversary. I can't wait to see what the next 5 years bring us!

Next Time

Things I said I HAD to have in my next house...

- A fire place
- A jetted tub
- An open floor plan
- More than 2000 sq ft.
- A 2 car garage

My new home has NONE of these things and I am completely in love with it although, I have made a new list of things that my next home MUST have...

- Bigger closets
- 2 bathrooms

That's it. Short and sweet but next time I'm really not bending. One bathroom is fine until you both have to go #2 at the same time. No one wants to go after the other person has made it all stinky. This surprisingly happens a lot at our house.
