What were you doing 49 years ago today?


I wasn't alive...

But I know what 2 people were doing this day 49 years ago...


A big Happy 49th Anniversary to my parents! ... my mom got my dad a 50 ft water hose for his gift, just in case they didn't make it to their 50th next year... ahh, the romance <3  My parents are the most awesomest parents ever! <3 Here they are a year into their marriage when my brother came along.  So young!.... Love you momma & daddy! <3 .. & Yes I know I used an excessive amount of hearts here, but we're talking 49 years of marriage <3
here they are a year into the marriage when my brother came along... they knew they didn't get it quite right, so they had one more child & knew they couldn't do any better then that :)
Oh yeahhhhh!!!! :)

Yep... my Momma & Daddy are celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary today!


Neil Patrick Harris makes anything better to celebrate

I need to get a picture of my momma in her wedding gown.  Beautiful.

I used to look at their wedding album over & over again when I was growing up.

I even tried on my mom's wedding dress when I was getting married.  It had yellowed, but was still a beautiful dress...

49 years together... wow....

Yippie! Yay!
Because I will use this picture over & over... its the best...

Let's look back to 1964
