Penny Pitcher Draft Beer Has Been Good To Me

5 years ago today, I met Alex; the greatest man in the world!  I am so thankful and blessed to have met him.

If you are looking to hear about how we met in school or at work and fell in love, you will have to look elsewhere.  Our story is a little less sophisticated, but none the less it is our love story and I look forward to one day telling my grandchildren how their “Gramps” {hehe} and I met. 

We are some classy people because on December 23, 2005 we met at a bar on penny pitcher night. 

We hit it off somewhat, which I am sure many thanks are in order to the penny pitchers of draft beer we consumed. 


{Yes this is the actual pitcher from the night we met}

After some time Alex drank too much and before I knew it he was singing Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers In The Night” to me. 

He started to get on my nerves.  I bolted when he tried to land a big slobbery kiss on me.

Apparently we exchanged numbers because in his drunken state he tried to call a few times that night, I ignored his calls. 

For some reason I felt bad for him the next day, so I called to check on him.  We hit it off again, this time without being inebriated. 

We saw each other every day and 3 weeks after meeting we moved in together.

  I know....I know.....I KNOW how CRAZY that sounds, especially with all the psychos in our world, but believe me I knew this was the real deal.  Even weirder was the fact that my strict mother {whom he met 5 days after we met} did not fuss or lecture me one bit, it was like she also knew he was the one and she was totally okay with us moving in together {so weird}.

As they say, the rest is history.

Never in a million years, while he was serenading me that fateful night we met, did I think that same song would be the song Alex and I danced to for our first dance as husband and wife.  Seriously, I’ve always thought Frank Sinatra was cool, but I had no idea his music was that powerful :~)

Alex, I love you and am so thankful our lives crossed paths 5 years ago.  I can’t imagine life without you and the boys!

What’s On Michelle’s Phone Tuesday

If you want to join this week’s party be sure to visit Jessica here and join the link up, while you are there grab her snazzy button.

I hate I missed late week’s awesome party, you can check out the awesomeness from last week here

Time to play catch up!

We’ve been doing a lot of wrapping around our house. Last year my husband wrapped EVERYTHING, but I decided to join in on the fun this year. Wow nice and blurry. 


We have lived in our house for 3 years and this was the first time we have ever used our fireplace.


A customer bought our rims right off our truck, so we had to get some new 26’s to properly represent the wheel shop.


I stripperfied my nails to be festive and match an outfit to attend a Dirty Santa Party.


I bought a new cute sparkly clutch for the same Dirty Santa Party.


We received our annual shipment of baked goodies from my mother in law, all the way in New York.  Her cookies are amazing, even after shipping they are still just as fresh as the day she makes them. 


I dropped my girls off at the mall for an hour and let them carry my phone so I could call them {since I am a mean mommy that thinks 6th graders don’t need their own; been there, tried that, won’t try it again for a while} and they apparently had fun playing dress up in Claire’s.


Since the kids are out of school we have been crafting.


And lastly, it seems like all I do is clean....this is our new puppy hiding from the vacuum. 


Now it’s your turn.  So run and get your phones so you can link up!
