3 Wonderful Years

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!! :)
It was so nice to have 6 days off although the time flew by!
I think I slept between 10-12 hours every night, ha.
The one night I had 5 hours of sleep, I took a nap the next day...a nap that was over 4 hours long! I might have kept sleeping but Billy insisted I wake up so I could sleep that night ;)

I feel like we did a lot in the past week with Christmas and all so I decided I'd write a few posts instead of one huge one.

On Tuesday night (a week ago) Billy and I celebrated 3 years together. We got a hotel room at one of the big casino's in Minnesnowta and we saw a show, Cirque Dreams Holidaze (not a Cirque du Soleil show). It was awesome!! We had such a fun night!

I got to the hotel around 4 to check in and get ready, Billy got there around 5:30. We ordered some room service and had some drinks in the room. The hotel/casino is a "alcohol free" so we could only drink in our room. I was naughty and snuck in the LQ and I thought I was totally busted when the bell boy asked to check my bag. I slowly unzipped it hoping the bottle was on the bottom of the bag, thankfully it was and the guy saw my crackers and juice and let me close the bag back up....phew ;)

After we shared our sandwich and some beverages we headed to the show. It was an hour and a half of non-stop entertainment. It was in a new theater and our seats were great. After the show Billy wanted to gamble. We agreed on a $100 " gambling allowance". I don't gamble but Billy enjoys it. He went through $70 real quick. Once he got on his "favorite" machine, one that he had previously won money on. He put in the last $20 of his money and he won $400! I was so excited for him! That more than paid for our entire night! After gambling we went to a noodle bar and had some really yummy chinese food then just wandered around the casino doing some people watching ;) It was around 1:00 when we got back to our room.

Billy had to leave early the next morning for hockey so I woke up when he did and ordered breakfast for myself...eggs, bacon, sausage and toast oh and hashbrowns. It was the perfect ending to our perfect 3 year celebration. I just realized how much of a pig I am. I was barely at the hotel for 16 hours (a few of which I slept) and I ate 3 big meals, hahaha. i also haven't been to the gym in a week so i'm feeling slugish.

Here are the only pics I have from the night, Billy doesn't like to take pics with me and the self timer so I'm lucky if I can get in a few with him....


oh, how i love him! :)

after looking at all these pictures and most of the pictures our camera has taken recently , i think it's just about time for a new one. i really dislike our camera.
anywho, i hope everyone has a happy tuesday!!

aww you guys are way cute!!! It sounds like such a fun night!!! I love getting hotel rooms, it's great way to clear the itch of a little vacay. We only stayed about 30 minutes from our house one night in the city but it was so much fun to just get away for the night!! Lots of love!

Did you say crazy legs??? Try gorgeous legs... I would die to have your sticks!

Happy Belated 3 years! =) Looks like you all had a great time.

Michelle said...

Awww how sweet. It sounds like you guys had a blast. Kevin hates taking pics too, He gets very annoyed, the only time I can get a pic of him is when he’s tipsy but it’s still hard to get a good one so I’m not even sure if it’s worth the hassle. The pictures you took were great you look beautiful. It’s great to hear you guys won 400 dollars and is even more awesome that it paid for the night! Well I wish you two love birds more years of celebration and happiness.

Danielle said...

Happy 3 years! Sounds like you two had a great time...and a nice, relaxing break.

P.S. Your calves look awesome! My little bird legs would NEVER do that.

Alison said...

Sam HATES having his picture taken and using the self timer!!! Usually we're bickering about it right up until the flash goes off and then we smile quickly just for the picture! ;) Love what you're wearing by the way. Super cute!!!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, you guys look so cute together! That's awesome you were able to sneak in the booze and won money all in the same night! Glad you had a great anniversary and holiday!

Meg said...

You guys look so cute! Phillip hates taking pictures also. I always have to listen to him bitch--it's quite annoying.

It sounds like you guys had a wonderful evening celebrating 3 years, Phillip and I celebrate 3 year on Thursday--fingers crossed it is as fab as your celebration.

Happy almost New Years!

I love little getaways like that even when there not too far away. Dave and i did one to santa rosa on our 3 year. We still talk about it.

Happy anniversary to you two kids! To many more years to come.

Oh and ps. You both look adorable.

Girl, your legs are crazy. And by crazy I mean you have AMAZING CALVES! Who's jealous? This girl! What a cute celebration. You two are precious! Glad you had a nice holiday :)

What a fun anniversary trip! I would love to sleep that much over a break, but I always plan too many things to do. Ugh.

You guys are such a cute couple. I love it.

Kelly said...

You look so cute together! Love the dress!!

Hayley said...

Those are some hot legs, dearie! I laughed when you said you thought you were busted. An alcohol free casino??? That just goes against nature. Everyone knows people gamble more when they're drunk. Glad you had a good anniversary!
