Valentines Day... 5 years

WOW it has been five years of marriage for Clint and me but dating and knowing each other for 15 yrs. That is so fun to me. I remember our first date after a Friday night football game. Me in my cheerleading uniform and we went to McDonald's to get an ice cream. I still like to go there to get ice cream. Time has flown by. A 2 year old little boy, a new home state of Nebraska and lots of new friends. Times have changed in such a great way. We had a wonderful day. I went to the store and got a sled for the boys to play on since we had about 8 inches of snow. It was kind of fun since if you remember on our wedding day it snowed in TEXAS crazy. I got home and had some stuff for my boys. Grant and I made Valentines Day cupcakes and for daddy mommy made Paula Deans bread pudding his favorite desert and I found a 2004 bottle of Sterling wine. We were there in 2004 for part of our honeymoon and I thought this would be a fun surprise for Clint. He loved the bread pudding. I have to say that is was yummy but how can you go wrong with anything Paula Dean. Always fat fat and more yummy. Clint got me a beautiful diamond and ruby ring. It matches my wedding band and I am just loving it. We also... the three of us went to a really nice steak dinner. I got steak and crab legs my all time favorite. Mr. G did great he also got his own steak and loved it. What a wonderful evening with my boys. Clint is so thoughtful and truly my soul mate. I can not wait for the many more years to come. He is the love of my life and has already given me the best gift ever which is our little man Grant. What a true blessing of the Lord. I think that is crazy how much love you can have in your heart. True love is hard to find I hear but I feel so blessed to of found mine at 15. Love you Babe.
