April 5th marked the 8 year anniversary of Hubby and I meeting for the first time.

Tradition dictated that we eat Korean BBQ to celebrate.

UntitledEight years ago, I was unaware that the guy I was suddenly going to meet after a long day at Sea World was going to be the man I would be spending the rest of my life with.

Eight years ago, I was unaware that the guy I was too shy to sit next to would be the father of my two precious daughters.

Eight years ago, I was unaware that the guy I ended up giving my rice to (because he had run out)  would be the man that works so hard to allow me to live my dream of a stay at home mother.

If I could go back, I would tell my “eight years ago self” to sit next to him.  He’s the one.  Enjoy the ride because it’s an interesting one.

Happy “first meeting” anniversary, Hubby.  I love you.

It’s that time of the year when I start looking back at Hubby and my relationship.

Today marks the 6th year anniversary of the very first day we met.  We met at a Korean BBQ restaurant, so in continuing our tradition, we will be eating Korean BBQ for one of our meals today.  Yum!

Six years! 

It’s an understatement to say that we’ve grown a lot in these past six years.  We’ve truly become a family. 

We’ve had our share of adjustments, especially when M came along, it was a major adjustment. 

I feel that only in the past year or so that we’ve finally found our stride again.  We are laughing more, sharing more, cuddling more. 

Because M was born so fast into our marriage, we had to learn how to become husband and wife AND parents all at once.  I don’t regret having M so soon into our marriage, but I will say that it was a major jolt to the relationship.  It wasn’t bad, it was just different.  We shook up our dynamic by bringing in a child so soon.  It’s been work getting us to this point, and I feel like we are finally at an equalibrium.  We’ve found our balance between married and parents.  We’ve found our stride.  We’ve found our routine.

I know that eventually we will be bringing in another child into the mix (no, not pregnant yet).  There will be another round of adjustments.  There will be another time of unbalance and uncertainty.  There will be ups and downs.  There will be laughter and tears. 

But I know that we are a team, and above all, we are a family.  We will always find a way to work together and make it work. 

There’s no one else I’d rather go through life with..

Happy “first meeting” anniversary, Hubby!

When Hubby and I became engaged back in 2010, I swore it was a day that I’ll never forget.

Of course I haven’t forgotten the actual moment.  I haven’t forgotten where we were, what he said, how he looked, how I felt.. you know.. all the important details.

I also swore to myself that I’d never forget the day..

But here we are, January 8th and I hadn’t remembered until this past weekend.

Hubby proposed to me on January 2nd, 2010 and it totally slipped my mind this year.

The only reason I remembered was because Hubby was updating his Facebook timeline with some important information and he asked me what year he proposed.  He should remember too, right?

I just thought that important dates like that would stick with me forever.  The memory of the day hasn’t left my mind, but I figured neither would the date… but it did!

I know life gets hectic and things get overlooked, but I hope to always remember those important moments in my life.

Thank God for reminders!

This past weekend marked Hubby and my 5 year anniversary.

In April, we celebrated the 5 year anniversary of our 1st date, but in May was when we became an official couple.

Five years has flown by so fast.  Ever since we started dating, it seems like our lives just moved in warp speed.  Within 5 years, we started dating.. got married.. had a kid.. wow!

I know I say this every anniversary.. but I still can’t believe the turn of events that have occurred since we started dating.  It’s been blessings all the time!

We’ve had lots of ups.. some downs.. and surprisingly, rarely any tears (knock on wood!).  It’s been an adventure that I hope continues to be as fun and loving as it is..

We didn’t do much for our anniversary.. honestly, we both kind of forgot about it (it was on Friday.) and just went along with our regular day-to-day… we only realized what the date was that night.. by then it was really too late to do anything..

We did get to spend a wonderful weekend together as a little family (recap here) and made some wonderful memories.

Here’s to another five years.. and another five years.. and another.. and another.. and another after that!

I love you, Hubby!!

Five years ago, Hubby and I went on our first date.

Disneyland.

I have been on several first dates in my life, and the first date I had with Hubby was the best one.

Since that day we met in early April, we had been talking non-stop.  We would text each other throughout the day.. and we pretty much knew enough about each other to make it comfortable being on a date.

In some small way, I kind of knew that he and I were destined to be together from that day on.. A small voice in the back of my head told me “he’s the one.”

It’s been 5 years since that day.. since then, we’ve gotten married, moved in together, and started a family..

Maybe one of these years we’ll start a Disneyland tradition, where we go to Disneyland on this day just like we go to Korean BBQ on April 5th. 

It would be nice to relive this memory with him and our family as the years go on..

Happy first date-iversary, Hubby!  I love you and our little family! 

It’s that time of the year when I start reminicing about the beginnings of the relationship that is Hubby and I, or me, or mine.. what’s the correct word to use?!

Anyway, five years ago today was when Hubby and I met for the first time at Korean BQQ.

Everytime since then, or at least since we’ve been living together, we have been going to whatever Korean BQQ is available.  Since we have a toddler, we don’t really go to the “cook your own” type restaurants. 

Last year, M was eating baby food when we went.  Now, she can enjoy some food!  That’s exciting.

We have to figure out where we are going to go.  Because it’s a Friday night, it’s going to get busy fast, so we might have to go early.

I can’t believe five years have come and gone so quickly.  That seems like ages ago, but feels like a blink of an eye. 

Thank God Lent is over and we can have yummy Korean BBQ meat today!  Yay!

January 1st, 2009 was the very first entry on this blog..

That means I’ve completed 4 years of blogging, and I am entering into my 5th year..

In 2009, I wasn’t married.  Hubby and I had been dating for about 8 months and he was away on an Asian vacation.

I was still living at my parents house and working in the bacteriology lab in San Bernardino.

I was about halfway through my MBA program at the University of Phoenix online…

The blog was about my life but it had no real direction.  I didn’t know what exactly I wanted out of the blog, but I knew it was going to be more well-thought out than previous blogs I had in the past.  I wanted this blog to mean something, what that was, I had no idea at that point. 

Who would have known that this blog would become a wedding blog, a married life blog, and eventually a “mommy blog?!”

Beginning this 5th year of blogging, I’m curious to see where it all goes.  This year is the year I plan to blog every day…

We’ll see what this year has planned for me and this blog..

How long have you been blogging?!
