Happy Anniversary?

Five years ago today Clint and I were married in the Washington D.C. LDS temple. It's been a hard but good time. We have two beautiful children, two crazy children, a complex about what to do with our crazy children, stretch marks to prove we have two crazy children, and the love we share that only gets better through our trials and experiences (cue sappy love song).

Anyway, there's only one problem with this day...where's my husband? Oh yeah, he's in Africa slaving away for the military. Actually, he enjoys his time there minus the no family part.
So the question here is what to do for my anniversary? Should I go get a manicure, pedicure, massage? Should I go buy some bead stuff? Should I go to the mall for a shopping spree? Because spending Clint's hard earned money is what I do best, right?

To bad I had to spend $92 to replace the battery in our car yesterday, and spent $230 to have our window replaced in the car two days ago. Oh well, maybe next year when I have a husband to get gift for me. Now I will subject you to some pictures of our marriage that I took off of Facebook. (I realized after I posted Cameron's birthday that I could have done that).

Yes, HAPPY Anniversary! I'm so sorry Clint wasn't here for it... Josh and I celebrated our 5th anniversary apart too, earlier this year. I was in Germany and he was in the States, in the middle of a month-long trip. Less than fun. But you're sealed, and you'll keep being sealed, and that's what the important thing is that day--we can be happy that we have each other, even when we are far apart. (This is what I told myself... I hope you do get to have that pedicure sometime, though.) :-D

Happy Anniversary! I hope it was good even though you were apart. Ben was at a Training for our 5th anniversary so I took the kids out to Applebees by myself, haha. Anyways, I hope you're doing well
