OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!!!!!!

Later this year Dave and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.  All together now....ahhhhh!!!  For our fifth anniversary we threw caution to the wind and took a whirlwind trip to Europe.  Dave has been talking for quite a while about what we want to do this year for our anniversary...

Tuesday Dave sends me a text while I'm at working asking if we have any photo booth events in September.  Being the responsible businesswoman, I, of course, do not keep any of that information with me.  (Sarcasm intended.)  On my way home from work he calls me and explains to me why he was asking.  I guess he found great airline tickets to Zurich and that we could spend 12 days in Europe on vacation.  Well that's all great and all, but I just don't care.  Sure it's not just another day, but there are ways I'd rather be spending my money and time than taking some big adventure.  I've been to Europe.  I've been to Switzerland.  In the last few months I've mentioned to him New York, Chicago, California, Portland, etc., but not Europe.  I told him I wasn't interested.

Wednesday morning he calls me at work (I don't know why he does that.  I sit in open seating with about a million other people.  It's not exactly conducive to talking on the phone.) and tries to entice me again on a big vacation.  Before he even makes the offer I turn him down.  If we've got that money then I don't need to literally be saving my pennies and quarters for a treadmill.  But he continues anyway and gives me an offer I couldn't refuse.

And my friends, I have the most absolutely exciting news in the history of this blog to date.  Seriously.

I am going to the Olympics.

There are not enough exclamation points for my excitement.

!!!!!!!!OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!!!!!!

Now the real question....do I get the US or UK version of these shoes?

So freaking awesome! Have fun, and contests on you 10years! We are suppposed to do Alaska for our 10th, but seeing as how that is next year and we haven't started saving for it, I don't think it will happen. I'll need to just enjoy my granite instead.

Funny...my husband and I discussed a trip and instead he decided we'd spend the money on finishing our basement. In the end a good choice, but it was another 5 years (our 15th anniversary) before I got a trip. Your husband needs to rub off on mine. :) Have a fantastic trip! We expect lots of pics!!
