Patriotic Mickey Mouse cookies.......

It didn't take much planning to know what cookies I would make for today's blog.  These were too perfect for today because...........

Today is my 5th Anniversary!!!! Five long incredible years together. I couldn't be more blessed.

Five years ago two totally opposite people exchanged vows....yes completely opposite.

He's quiet......I'm loud

He's NOT a people person.....I'm a social butterfly

He's a big kid......I'm not :)

We really can't be more opposite.....but it works for us. I know it sounds cliche but he COMPLETES me.....Oh and he slow dances with me in the kitchen.....that's a plus in any girls book.

So, it was to no surprise when it came time to picking out our honeymoon destination.  He didn't suggest Jamaica, Hawaii, or some other exotic location that most couples choose. No my husband wanted to go to..... you guessed it.....DISNEY WORLD!

Hey.....It is the happiest place on Earth. (I secretly love Mickey Mouse, but I'll never tell).  Don't this picture just shout MAGICAL?

It really was a place where his inner child could come out......or stay out....because it's really always out. Y'all did see his Transformer collection right?

I made sure to take lots of pictures so I could one day show his children, when he tells them to "grow up" lol.....Always have proof in your hands. Take a snapshot of everything. You never know when you may need it for Here are a few pictures of my big, kid of a husband.


We had an amazing time on our honeymoon.

 We had our Mickey and Minnie newlywed hats on. We were VIP everywhere and had special seating (a little something special Disney provides for honeymooners). It really was a magical time.

It's five years later and the man still takes my breath away.

We've been through so much together. He joined the Army.....HOOAH, we moved to Germany for three years, we had two deployments, we lost my mother to cancer, we had two miscarriages, and we had two beautiful girls together. We have had our share of good times and bad.....but we made it through,  still faithful.... and loving one another.

Thank you baby for five of the most MAGICAL years a girl could ever have.  I can only hope to have many more years with you.....slow dancing in the kitchen.
