Romantics At Heart


So yeah. Our anniversary happened over our vacation, whether we were prepared for it or not. As you can see from above, we were not. After this brief text conversation with my mom I think the conversation with Shawn went something like this: 

Me: "My mom just informed me that today is actually our anniversary, not tomorrow like we thought.."
Shawn: "Huh. Well happy anniversary..."
Me: "Shoot. I didn't actually bring a card or gift or anything for you here, I hope that's okay?"
Shawn: "Totally fine. I didn't bring anything for you either.."
Me: "Awesome! Now lets go lay around the pool, drink a few beers, and fall asleep to celebrate!"

And that concludes our anniversary celebration. 

Romantics at heart we are. 

Here are a few pictures from the day. 
day outing to his fav, Margaritaville. Which if we are being honest, we totally sat down at the bar, decided we didn't want to pay $11 for a drink and $15 for nachos so we hightailed it to Chipotle and sat gleefully while enjoying our chicken burrito bowl and modelos. 

Cheers to number seven babe--hopefully we'll actually remember number eight! Here's to hoping...

ps. this was seven years of celebration. SEVEN. I am only twenty-seven now. If any twenty year old comes up to me and tells me they are getting married anytime soon I will most likely smack them silly. Have you even hit puberty at age 20?!?! Judging by our wedding pictures, no. You most certainly haven't. 
At least you have the skinny thing going for you when you get married before you have reached the legal drinking age. So maybe I retract my words. Do get married prior to 21. It will make for many "remember how much less I weighed before I started drinking wine married you?!?" moments.

pps. when you do get married, get married in Jamaica. you'll be high on love...or something for that matter.

  10. All my sisters got married before age 21. On my 18th birthday my dad woke me up and creepily whispered "congratulations on being the only Hubbard woman to not meet her husband by age 18." Now on my birthday my mom just laments the fact that I still haven't met anyone. Womp womp. You just can't win...

  17. Y'all are hilarious!! Happy Anniversary to you & Shawn... even if you don't remember the day! If it makes you feel any better my husband & I can't remember the date that we got engaged. I know it was a Thursday but, I always have to look back for the specific date! HA!

  18. Cory and I both totally forgot about our anniversary this year, too. Although it was a "dating" anniversary rather than a "marriage" anniversary, it was still pretty funny! I texted him around 4pm saying "Please tell me you forgot, too." And he had no clue what I was talking about... I've never been so relieved! Happy Anniversary to you two :) You're such an adorable couple. It just goes to show that you don't need all the frills and gifts and cards for your anniversary-- you just need the two of you! That's what's important after all :)

  19. Happy Anniversary! Long time reader...first time commenter :) I saw that you were married in Jamaica! We were too...almost 6 years ago. And I swear I may have even worn the same dress?! And I'm in Indiana too. Strange and really awesome. Just wanted to share in case you wanted to be my friend. LOL.... creeper... anyway... I love your blog!!

  20. omg. I'm only 19...to think that I could be married at 20 is so scary. Probably just because boys I know atleast still stink at this age and are very immature! Congrats to you and your beau :)

  21. Happy anniversary! (And I agree, getting married in Jamaica is probably the best decision I've ever made.)

  22. Happy anniversary! You look like babies in that picture! And just as beautiful (and skinny) today! My sister got married in Maui...there is definitely something about a destination wedding! So fun!

  23. You haven't aged one bit Erin! Also, I'm going to take a chance here and be the girl to point out your hubby has gotten more attractive throughout the years ;)

    I'm 20 now (turning 21 in February) and I think that's too young to get married but I've definitely thought about it! I'm going to focus on graduating from college first, then get hitched :)

  25. Happy belated anniversary! I love that picture from your wedding--you both look so young. My hubby and I got married right after we turned 21 and I can't wait till the day our 7th anniversary rolls around (hopefully we will remember it!). Love your blog!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
