Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Happy Anniversary, Mike! We met on a blind date...

Happy Anniversary, Mike! We met on a blind date...

Happy Anniversary, Mike!  Today marks 4 years since the day that mightly large Justice of the Peace came over to marry us.


We didn't have an actual "wedding" as we had other plans for that money.  We wanted to add a covered patio, gas stove instead of the electric, new dishwasher, and updated light fixtures and fans.  We then sold that house earlier this year for less than what we paid for it after putting in $20,000!!

So, we spent $150 for the JP to come to the house and our families insisted on coming over.  We had only been in the house for five weeks, so I had to quickly unpack everything and make the house look presentable.

After the JP pronounced us, the UT game was put on... how romantic...


Then, we had some friends trickle in for a big party.  We had about 80 people at the house.  I catered in On the Border and the evening was topped off with some Red Velvet cake, that was wrong, and the cake lady made me a new cake on Monday, but that's another story.

December will mark 7 years together, as we met being set up on a blind date that he was 25 minutes late picking me up for.  He told me a couple of years later that he wasn't planning on showing up.  Sometimes I wonder...

And then I ran away...

but he caught me....... just kidding, we ran upstairs to get ready for walking down the stairs.

Gary, Thanks!  I always like people's reactions when I show them that picture!

Happy Anniversary Donna and Mike!  What a funny post, I was cracking up!  When I saw you running upstairs I thought you guys were rushing to your "honeymoon suite" or something until I read it...LOL

Sincerely,

Kathleen

Michelle, Sometimes... ;)

Kathleen, Nope, we didn't have a honeymoon for 6 months, and that was just a trip to the Dominican for another friends' wedding.

Craig, Thanks!

Posted by Carl Winters about 10 years ago

Happy Anniversary Donna... That was a very entertaining post... who says you aren't funny? :)

Posted by Steve Shatsky about 10 years ago

C & C, Thanks! As for the cakes, I took one bite and cried, and I'm not a crier... the cake lady made me my very own 10" cake on Monday... she made the red velvet one wrong, and that's the only thing I wanted right all day!

Steve, My husband (and others) tells me all the time that I'm not funny... I just think he doesn't get me...

So nice to know you a little better in this post. Didn't know you were "into" blind dates and most of all, that you would wait "25 minutes". Those 2 things would have freaked me out. But I'm glad it didnt you. Congratulations.

Loreena, I wasn't really into blind dates, but it seemed everyone had a friend I needed to meet that year.  As for waiting, I was at my house so I was just working and moved along my day not really caring.  I cared that he was rude and didn't call to say he was going to be late, but by the time he showed up, I was just hungry and wasn't planning on a second date.
