My 20th Anniversary

Having just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, I thought I'd share some of the highlights...

First, Rick and I spent Labor Day weekend at a nearby hotel that I'd been wanting to see. Known for it's size and glamour, I was looking forward to visiting. And I'd been trying to get us there for the entire three years that we've lived here. It did not disappoint.

This is The Gaylord Texan. Done up nicely in Texas motif.

Later in the week, we celebrated our actual anniversary at a local steakhouse - Randy's Steakhouse - that we both like. Plus we had a $25.00 off coupon! Twenty years later, I'm still up for a good deal.

But who the heck are these old people?

We dressed up for the event. And that doesn't happen any too often! Rick wore a new suit that I bought him last year.

I only had to twist his arm a little bit to get him to wear it.

THIS is how he started out that day though... and THIS is how he could get himself divorced, I told him.

He wasn't kidding, either. He thought he looked fine.

Close up was even better.

All in all, it was a very memorable occasion. But the best memory that Rick and I shared? When I simply asked him if he remembered our wedding night....

"Nope," he answered.

And he was serious.

I hate Lupus.

However, the new version that I told him is much better than the actual truth!

I love Lupus.
