Please be advised these photos are horrible quality. They are the only two pictures I have on this computer from this time period. I am pretty sure someone took a photo of these and then put them on Facebook, not sure if it was me or my mom but I found them on this computer so I am going to use them!
This first one is a few days before we got married. Notice that Rob has a beer in his hand, even though he was not old enough to drink, hey he was getting married AND going to the NAVY in a few days, he should at least be able to have a beer before doing all that, right? He was 20 when we got married, I was 19. We didn't have a big wedding and we didn't really invite anyone. Rob didn't want to get dressed up so we wore some pretty lame clothes for our Vegas wedding.
This first photo is from the party we had at my parents' house before heading to Vegas. We didn't invite anyone to this either, none of my friends were there. Only my parents, their best friends, my brother, Rob's parents, his brother and his sister were there. We had our wedding cake that day. It was my favorite cake, white cake with white icing, made by my parents' friend who is an awesome cake decorator. She was one of the few people there. Oh, also, my parents' friends' kids were at this party too. They were little and now they are almost all grownups, one just joined the military. CRAZY!
Rob and I only knew each other for six months before getting married. I don't remember exactly how we decided to get married but we did. He gave me my engagement ring (that I don't have anymore) while sitting next to me on my mom's couch. I'm pretty sure his exact words were "here". Amazing story right, so romantic! We were young and I guess dumb.
P.S. I would like to be this tan and skinny again. I guess I should keep dreaming!
So, there you go. Here's us. Back when we were younger, thinner, blonder (at least I was) and crazier. We have been through a lot over the last 12 years but I love him and I'm pretty sure he loves me too.
Another P.S. I will NEVER cut my hair that short again. Gosh, it's awful. But, I do miss being blonde!
