Amazed

To my Valentine~
The day we danced to this has been and always will be the best day of my life. We have been through a lot since that day... Maryland, Rhode Island, pregnancy #1~ (that is a line!) Hawaii, Baby #1~ (the joys of becoming a parent) 9/11, deployments, long work hours, Baby #2~ (the joys of colic) more deployments, Chicago, more long work hours, Baby #3~ (the joys of being together) the transition from military to civilian, living with the inlaws, buying our first house, starting a new job, commuting, deaths of beloved family members, restoring old house, Baby #4~ (the joys of having little girls) and in between there we somehow always manage to find time for each other. It hasn't always been sunshine and roses, but if it is what we need to do in order to make OUR dreams come true~ I am with you, I am here for you and I will always be willing to dance to this tune with you. Thank You for choosing me to be your dance partner on that very special day.

I am forever Amazed by you!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Awwww! So sweet. When we look back at all we've done and the places we've been...it is so crazy, but it is wonderful to be together. Great idea and I might copy it for my own Valentine post! :)

I LOVE the name "Girly Blender Weiner Beach!" It is a place where the girlys are hot, the weiners run free and the blender is always full!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love that song, and your dedication to your hubby is so sweet.
Whenever I hear the song what I remember (besides you and Hubby dancing of course) is you singing one of the lines from the song, don't remember which one it was, it wasn't from the chorus, and I kinda recognized it, ran to my room, grabbed my new cd that I'd bought the day before...threw it into Mom and Dad's stereo and you were like..."That's it, that's THE song!!" thought that memory would make you smile.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Give everyone hugs from their Auntie!

Awww...I just love happy hubbies and wives, with happy families, and that's one of the reasons I like to visit you daily. I can feel that about your family just from the way you write about them, and from the pix you share. What you guys have? That is what life is ALL about :)!

And I really think you and Hallie and BK need an older broad with you on Girly Blender Wiener Beach--and I'm just the gal for alla y'all :)!!!! My main duty will be to make the three of you look even better than you already do--and I would be happy with that job! When do we leave???? After more snow here in MN last night...would leaving in an hour be too soon?? Well, maybe tomorrow...so everyone can celebrate Valentine's Day first. HA!

Have a good day...

Hi, Girlymom!

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! (sorry, I'm running really far behind today!) This is such a sweet valentine to your hubby, awwww! That's so romantic that you met at a dance, and that song, perfect!! Hope you two (or six?) have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

BTW, did I miss something? What the heck is Girly Blender Wiener Beach? :-)

Girlymom,

Hi! I just received a message from Maria, I had tagged her for the same meme that I tagged you for yesterday. She said that when she tried to put this meme on her blog all her Ad Sense advertisements disappeared. I don't know if the meme is what caused this, but thought you should know. I don't want to ruin everyone's blogs! So sorry if it caused you any problems.
