It feels like the first time
Here's this week's Monday Mission by promoguy.net.
  1. When was the last time you pampered yourself? I would have to say this weekend. I rarely clothes shop just because money is so tight on one income. So to walk out with two pairs of pants, four shirts, and a bit of make-up was a huge splurge for me...
  2. When was the last time someone pampered you? Todd did this weekend by not waiving the bank statement in my face as I did so...
  3. Describe the last time you recall really feeling loved (other than from children or pets). This past weekend as Todd told me over and over how happy he was that he took a long weekend just so we could spend more time together and snuggle.
  4. Has your use of the computer ever caused any arguments? What's the story there? We're both addicted to our computers, so since we don't have to share, not really...
  5. What's the most embarrassing thing your Mom ever did? She reads this, so gut-check... But I'd have to say showing up 10 minutes before our wedding -- totally missing me getting dressed, all of the pre-pictures (the photographer had to come back and do more with her), flower delivery, and such. My friends and Todd's mom played the mother of the bride role until she got there -- but she still had to change, so we barely made it out the door on time. To her credit, her wake-up call was late that day.
  6. I've met some adults who've never learned to swim, and others who never learned how to ride a bike.. Is there anything that you never learned as a child that you probably should have? Not so much as a child, but I never learned to drive a stick-shift and it really bugs me.
  7. I have no idea who said it (and I spent all of two minutes trying to research it), but "someone" once said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Post an image that says more than words. Or instead, describe a picture you recall which touched your heart.

I guess this would go with #5, because it just goes to show that no matter what goes wrong on your wedding day (and something will always go wrong be it major or minor), the minute you see each other all will be forgotten -- and all will be right with the world. This photo was the first picture taken after we stepped inside following our vows (my mom snapped it and we didn't even know it), and it gives me goosebumps each time I look at it. I still look in his eyes almost six years later and feel that way each and every time!

BONUS: What's love got to do with it? It may seem to you that I'm acting confused when you're close to me...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

First MY Monday Mission made me cry ... and now YOURS! :) I *love* that photo! (Todd looks so young!) You guys are truly wonderful.

(PS - the man that officiated your wedding still looks like Fonzie.)
