Six for Six

Today Hubby and I celebrate six-years of wedded bliss, so I thought I’d celebrate with six goofy lists of random marital dealies….

List One: Six Cars We’ve Had Since We’ve Been Together
1. Pontiac Sunbird (it was mine coming into the relationship… what a piece o’ junk)
2. Chevy Corsica (his coming into the relationship…)
3. Saturn SL2 (loved that car – Hubby got in an accident with it – SQUASH! It crumbled like a tin can)
4. Oldsmobile Alero (Still driving it…)
5. Buick Rendezvous (was great til Pumpkin was born… then… CRAMPED!)
6. Dodge Grand Caravan (My mama-van)

List Two: Six Places We’ve Gone on Vacation
1. Orlando, FL
2. The Bahamas
3. Hawaii
4. Savannah, GA
5. Washington, DC
6. Hershey, PA

List Three: Six Top Contenders for Pumpkin’s Name (All Vetoed)
(No list like this exists for The Princess because we had her name picked out before she was even conceived!)
1. Dylan
2. Alexa
3. Cameron
4. Kyla
5. Erin
6. Jordan

List Four: Six Best Gifts Hubby’s Ever Given Me
1. The Princess & Pumpkin
2. My engagement ring
3. A trip to swim with dolphins
4. Subscription to Real Simple (That was one of my gifts this a.m.)
5. My “chiplet” – the promise ring he gave me early on in our relationship
6. The bracelet with The Princess’s name on it, the year she was born (I don’t wear it anymore, because I haven’t yet gotten Pumpkin’s name on it!)… Or, the tickets to RENT!… Or the huge huge picture he had made of the girls… Or….

List Five: Six Most Romantic Things Hubby Has Done For Me
1. The Anniversary Scavenger hunt of 2002 that ended in the jewelry store
2. The Twelve Days of Christmas (the many times he’s done it)
3. His proposal (though it was in the dormitory at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS)
4. The vows he wrote for our wedding day
5. Arranged for a post-season pedicure for me after a painful tax season
6. Carried me EVERYWHERE after I had surgery on both feet (Including carrying me into the bathroom and actually having to sit me down!)
(There are several more things – and I keep thinking I should add them to the list, but I said “six” not “eighty”, so you get what you get…)

List Six: Six Things I Love About Being Married
1. Knowing I’ve found the love of my life
2. Having someone I love to grow old with
3. Getting to let myself go (wink, wink)
4. Having beautiful children with a man I adore
5. Having someone around to share the yucky chores with
6. Happiness

  1. Very Cool. Your hubby sounds like a great guy. Shows me what I know about accountants….. =)

    You’ll love the Real Simple magazine. I always enjoyed reading the copies a friend would get, and my current favorite cookbook is from them. They make me feel like I can do a great job without having to be Martha Stewart, ya know?
