Eight years ago today

| | Comments (33)

I made the biggest promise of my life and pledged to be passionate and compromising until death parts us. I've read in the New Testament where it says that people are neither married nor given in marriage Up Yonder but I told Chris good luck in shaking my spooky specter off his leg anyway.

I've learned a lot about men and marriage these past eight years. Marriage is a lot like learning to walk with a leg that has a mind of its own. Sometimes you trip over each other and fall down. Eventually you get better at putting one before the other and making the whole walking thing work.

I don't care if it sounds sappy; if I had to make a mental list of the qualities I would ask for in a husband, I'd say that I've gotten more than I listed. And he just learned to iron.

"IF ever two were one then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife were happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor aught but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever."
- Anne Bradstreet



Congratulations Lady and The Sexy!


Happy anniversary, you crazy kids! :)

I love the leg analogy. Happy anniversary!

Woot! for The Lady and The Sexy!

OK, here's how big a dolt I am. When I saw the "Happy Anniversary @Shockcitymusic" this morning, I figured that it was the 8th year of Shock City.

I even sent Chris a congrats message regarding Shock City.

He straightened me out, though.

This is even better! I've been married for 16 amazing years and wouldn't trade it for anything. I got more than I would have ever had on a list, too, if I had a list.

We should be shouting this sort of thing from the tops of buildings to combat the growing idea that all marriages will eventually end in divorce.

Congrats again! (and sorry about being such a dolt...personality characteristic I'm apparently stuck with)

Congrats Dana!

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! Eight years is nothing to sneeze at these days. It's been 17 years for me and my hub and while I seem to complain about him more than praise him, I wouldn't trade him for the world!

Congratulations. :)

congrats to both of you crazy kids.

Very sweet (and who says you can't be sappy about your man?!) Happy Anniversary!

I'm very happy for you two and aspire to have that happiness one day myself.

Congrats and Happy Anniversary. Here's to more and more years to come until you are old and sitting on a porch rocking in a rocking chair still nagging him about the dishwasher.

NORMAL,christian louboutin red bottoms A working gutter system prev, Ill. — Montini left Redbird Arena on Saturday with its fifth state trophy in the six years.

But the Broncos weren't satisfied with a third-place trophy after beating Morton 42-38 in the Class 3A consolation game. Montini's quest for a fourth consecutive 3A title ended Friday with a 48-45 overtime loss to Vernon Hills. The Broncos (35-2) were the Tribune's top-ranked team since beating Young on Jan,christian louboutin red bottoms. 21. Montini has won three state titles and finished third twice in six years.

"We are the standard; people want to beat us,christian louboutin red bottoms," Montini coach Jason Nichols said. "We would have brought home a trophy even if we would have lost, but it's better if you win. We didn't play our best basketball this weekend. I think our kids would agree. But you have to give credit to the teams we faced. I think we got a reminder of just how difficult it is to win down here."

Montini freshman Lea Kerstein made two free throws with 4,christian louboutin outlet,christian louboutin sale While the political uphea.8 seconds left to secure the victory over Morton. Malayna Johnson, who will play with her sister Michala at Wisconsin next season, wrapped up her career with three state titles and third-place medal.

"I'm excited to be playing with my sister next year," Johnson said.

Young bounces back: Linnae Harper made sure that final game for Young ended with a positive memory,louboutin outlet. The McDonald's All-American walked off the court with a big smile after finishing with 27 points and eight rebounds in Young's 60-27 victory against Huntley in the Class 4A third-place game,christian louboutin outlet.

"We couldn't let (Friday's) game affect us," Harper said. "We came out and played hard and stayed focused. I didn't want my season to end on a loss."

Young (27-5) likely will be a frontcourt-oriented team next season after losing Harper, Sydney Snower and Brittany Morris,louboutin outlet.

The Dolphins have won two state titles,christian louboutin sale, placed second twice, earned three thirds and finished fourth once in the last nine years.

"It's going to be strange (next year) because Linnae has been on varsity four years," Young coach Corry Irvin said. "A lot of seniors in the past couple of years left their mark, but we're a program and I'm sure we will find the missing pieces somewhere else."

Huntley happy with state trip: Huntley's first state appearance ended with two double-digit losses in two days. The Red Raiders (26-8) were led in scoring every game this season by either Sam or Ali Andrews. Ali, a freshman, scored a team-high nine points in Saturday's loss to Young.

"This has been an unbelievable ride this whole season, and we've enjoyed the last three days (at state)," Huntley coach Steve Raethz said. "I'm so proud of these girls for bringing home a fourth-place trophy. They've set the bar so high in terms of expectations."

3-point champion: Cumberland freshman Katie Poe drilled eight 3-pointers to win the Queen of the Hill 3-point showdown on Saturday. Poe, who won the Class 2A competition last Friday, edged out Bolingbrook's Kamari Jordan (7 3s).

That hurts: Quincy Notre Dame freshman reserve guard Olivia Hyer injured her left knee during warmups for Saturday's Class 3A title game. Hyer sat on the bench for the entire game,christian louboutin sale, but used crutches to climb up the podium to accept her first-place medal.

Montini junior guard Kateri Stone plodded through an ankle injury all weekend. Stone, the leading scorer on the Broncos, had 10 points in Friday's loss to Vernon Hills and did not score or attempt a shot in Saturday's win over Morton.

"We're not the same team with her being hurt," Nichols said. "She was not close to being 100 percent."

"I had to rest it. Playing every single day just wasn't the very best thing for it, but what was I going to do; it's the playoffs," Stone said.
