Flashback Friday

Alright, this Flashback Friday is a bit more special than the others. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday! 15 years folks. We have a beautiful family and a great life together! So, in the spirit of my lists this week, here's one more my friends (I promise this is the last one for a while). You're not sick of them yet are you? :) So here we go...
Top Ten Signs You Know You've Been Married for 15 Years
10. You spend your anniversary at Back to School Night. Yep, pretty romantic. We have three kids in elementary school so we had to make the rounds and meet their teachers. Nothing like sitting in a hot classroom for a few hours.

9. You go out to celebrate and order the most inexpensive plate cause you know you have to pay for soccer, ballet, guitar and art lessons next week. Kids are so expensive but worth every penny.

8. You buy chocolate covered strawberries to enjoy after the kiddos go to bed and when you go to get them out of the fridge, half of them have already been eaten. The other half have little bites taken out of them because the kid that thought they wanted one decided they really weren't in the mood for one afterall.

7. Instead of making plans weeks in advance for this special occassion you decide what you are going to do when you get in the car on your way out.

6. You cuddle up to enjoy a nice romantic comedy and you both doze off about 20 minutes into the movie... Sorry babe...

5. You still think you look as good as you did when you were first married until you look at your wedding album and you realize it REALLY has been 15 years.

4. Your husband tries to show your 13 year old how he used to get down on the dance floor when you were dating and he says "I saw those moves on MC Hammer's Behind The Music last night on VH1. Don't do that when my friends are here Dad."

3. You and your spouse actually think writing a top ten list together on the night of your 15 year anniversary is fun. (You should see the unedited version of this list!) ;)

2. Instead of spending an hour getting "suited and booted" for your anniversary date, you don't.

1. You tell your spouse "Hold on honey, I just gotta finish this blog post... Be there in a minute." : )

Happy Anniversary babe. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat!

I've been a slacker on my food journal among other things but I will definitley be back on track on Monday with a week dedicated to nutrition and diet. I also have an AWESOME giveaway coming up to compliment. Thanks for your patience during this recovery week and looking forward to an exciting new week. Make sure to check back to read about my new findings and get your entries in for the new giveaway.

Good luck to those of you who are racing this weekend. Good luck to those of you who are kicking out long runs this weekend. Good luck to those of you who are kicking out any amount of miles this weekend.

Have a good weekend and Happy Running!


  1. Hi Dawn,
    Happy Anniversary! Fifteen years is twenty year is coming up next year! Time sure does go by! Your list was great and so true:)

    Have a wonderful weekend Dawn!

  2. Happy Anniversary! That is such a great list. Kids and family are the best! Enjoy the weekend.

  3. Happy anniversary!! Love your lists!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary!

    Last year I ran a 5K on my anniversary, LOL.

  5. Happy Anniversary Dawn! Love the list--at least the classroom was hot! :P

  6. Happy Anniversary you guys! I didn't remember that we've been married a year longer... Perfect list! Sounds about right.... :)

  7. Happy Anniversary! ;-)

    My husband and I celebrated 17 years in June. This list sounds familiar to me. It sounds like our lives. I think that is one of the beautiful things about being married a long time--not doing something amazing on anniversaries is OK because every day is a celebration in some way. It's so comforting to grow old with your sweetheart.

    Anyway, you should not apologize for having a recovery week. ;-) This is YOUR blog and you are being generous in sharing with us period.

    I love your blog and check it first now when I read blogs.

  8. Happy anniversary! 15 years is something to be proud of!! :D Congrats!! You're list is cute ;)

  9. Happy Anniversary! I love the list! Love the son's comment about not showing the dance moves!

  10. Happy Anniversary to two of our favorite people!

  11. LOL! I laughed so hard at your list, because we just had our 14th anniversary....and I could say "yup", to every number on your list....except I don't have a 13 year old yet...and so my kids still think we are cool! =)

  12. Happy belated anniversary. Great list and so relatable...
