Photo Story Friday: Following in my Husband’s Footsteps

Oh look! Another wonderful excuse to scan old pictures and bore you to tears!! Yay!

Me and my husband in 1989. This was right after his college graduation and he was so deliriously tired he couldn’t keep his eyes open.

Or he was trying to be sexy.

It’s hard to tell sometimes. 😀

I LOVED this suit! It was a hounds tooth suit and I thought I was DA BOMB in that cutesy little flower tie thingie. I remember wearing this suit to work (at the bank) all the freaking time. I’m glad I had no idea it was so ill-fitting.

Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?

We’re standing in front of his parent’s fireplace in one of the HUNDREDS of houses they’ve lived in in their lifetime. (Seriously, his folks have lived in dozens of houses – restless spirits, I suppose. They’ve been in their current house the longest but yep, you’ve guessed it, they are looking for a bigger and “better” house. Will these people never learn to stay in one place and save their money??)

It was at that point, after proudly watching my then boyfriend walk down the aisle and accept his diploma, that I knew I WOULD graduate from college someday.

And it happened, only after giving birth to two children, working the night shift at Wal-Mart and 13 long, sleep-deprived years.

It happened.

And I am proud.
