Five Years

I can hardly believe that it has been five years (as of yesterday) since Todd and I tied the knot! It is amazing how time flies! A lot has happened in the last five years, ups and downs, lose of loved ones, joy of children, and so much experience gained! This year has been a rough one for us, but I am so grateful that we have stuck it out and have now celebrated! This year is going to be so much better, and I'm looking forward to it! His gift from me was kind of lame... he lost his wedding ring so I got him a new one. It was a requirement for him to wear it if he were going back to college, cause I know what those girls are really there for ;) Todd,
on the other hand, totally surprised me... since I have been up north the last few days he decided to build me this sweet set up down by the river so i can lounge in this hammock while I watch the kids! So thoughtful! He's funny, he'll never give me what I ask for, but he knows me well enough to blow me away with perfect surprises!

I have seen this "husband tag" going around lately & have decided that this is the ideal time for me to do it, so I can share some insights into TNT (Tami and Todd):

What is his name: Todd Allen Young
How long have you been together: 5 years and 1 day
How long did you date: Just about one year before we were married.
How old is he: he's 28 but he acts a whole lot younger than that!
Who eats more: definitely Todd
Who is taller: Of course, Todd
Who said I love you first: He did, totally surprised me too!
Who does the laundry: I do, but I can bribe him to help me fold sometimes... if I get lucky ;)
Who does the dishes: Both of us, but since school started for him it'll be more now days
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed: I do
Who pays the bills: I am the finiancial director around this establishment
Who mows the lawn: What lawn? We live in a desert! But he did back when we had one... oh how I miss the grass...
Who cooks the dinners? I do, but it's a lot more entertaining when he helps. For example, last Sunday dinner we had root beer floats in frosted glasses with our meal!
Who sings better: hmmm... probably him when he wants to.
Who is more stubborn: I think I mostly am, but he can have his moments.
Who is smarter: He thinks he's "the smartest person he knows" but the truth is I definitely am the smarter one *wink wink*
Who kissed who first: I kissed him first, hehe
Who asked who out first: I took him to Wendys as a "thank you" for showing me around my new hometown, so I guess that was our first date. But he invited me down there so he could show me around, so hmmm
Who proposed: Todd did, and even though I knew it was coming he totally surprised me!!
Who has more friends: I think I have more friends in real life, he has more friends in the world of the internet... so I think I'm one up on that ;)
Who has more siblings: Todd
Who wears the pants in the family: in the end... ME ;)

Love you babe!
