4 More Years!

Nope, this isn’t about what’s happening in Iowa. Four years ago today TobyJoe and I eloped to Niagara Falls. Here we are that day. We look so happy!

We’re actually freezing our tails off. Niagara Falls is bloody cold as hell during the dead of winter. But we were in Detroit visiting Gina and took the opportunity to drive up there for a day and seal the deal. You see, when I first met TobyJoe, he used to jokingly say, “Let’s run off to Niagara Falls, rent a room with a heart shaped bed and get married.” So we did just that only we couldn’t find a room with a heart shaped bed. We settled on the top floor of some hideously weird hotel directly overlooking the falls and each of us had to pee a lot for the duration of our stay.

Here we are about a month after we met. Our friend took this shot.

Ladies, sometimes getting really sloppy drunk at a bar will help you to meet the boy of your dreams.

This is the “appliance” anniversary. We were going to buy a HDTV but that’d be pretty irresponsible of us since we’re trying to buy a house. There will be no appliances purchased or given on this anniversary. Instead, we’ll make dinner, hang out with Em (who cackles every time I say BOO!) and I’ll have some vanilla ice cream with a couple of chocolate chips.

  3. Oh my gosh, you guys look so young in that picture! Not that you look old now, mind you. Happy anniversary! I was drunk in a bar when I met my husband. He was totally sober, we stood there talking for three hours, I asked him out, he gave me his number, I called him the next day and we spoke for 4 hours. My cell phone kept dying and I couldn’t charge it and talk at the same time, so he finally asked what I was doing that night, and we went out on our first date. We married two years later, have now been married almost three years, and have a 5 month old baby. Crazy. The time, where does it go?

    The weirdest thing about it is I was at the bar that night with some friends of my ex boyfriend. (No, I was not dating that guy when I met Andy.)

  5. I met you at Gina’s house right before you guys eloped. You and TobyJoe probably don’t remember me and my boyfriend Jeff having breakfast with you the morning after her house reception. I believe you guys mentioned going to some thrift stores, etc. Unless I’m thinking of someone else. ;)

    Happy Anniversary!

  6. Happy Anniversary! BTW – i have been meaning to ask, when the technology comes along, can I clone Toby Joe? I live far away so you will never run into his clone. I am not really that big of a freak.

  14. Happy anniversary! We hit 4 years in September and I had no idea it was the get a flatscreen one. Is it to late?? We honeymooned in the falls and lucky for us it was so pretty and warm. We went one year in march with no coats. And froze.

  15. 4 years, Happy Annivesary and congratulations! I remember reading that post about Niagra Falls – I can’t believe I’ve been visiting here for way over 4 years. I wish you many many more years of happiness.

    That b/w photo is one of the best that I’ve seen ever – so natural and sweet.
