Happy Anniversary to my hubby!

Reason number three:

Today is my wedding anniversary. Mike & I have been married for 3 years today. We've been together for 13 years, but married for 3.

We got married in the backyard at our house. We were married by my brother in law Jamey (Andrea's husband). Did you know in the state of California you can become an ordained minister for a day?

We were so happy to be finally married. I think everyone in my family was happy that we were finally married.
It was 105 degrees the day we were married.

We are trying hard not to crack up.

I now pronounce you husband & wife. For some reason, we all thought that was pretty funny.
Our wedding cake. The bride & groom I wanted on the top of the cake was too big. So this was my 2nd choice. Why are wedding cakes so dang expensive?

Cutting the cake.

Toasting to being married! It's Martinelli's people! And did you notice the burn on my arm? Yup, burned it on the oven the day of the wedding.
You may now kiss the bride.
We called it our ebay wedding. As we paid for the wedding with money I earned from selling on ebay. And most of the items we purchased for the wedding came from ebay. Including my dress.

And here we are 3 years later. Well actually this photo was taken in Vegas in January of this year.

Happy Anniversary Babe!!!! I love you!!!!

Happy Anniversary!!! Loved your wedding cake. And yes, they are so expensive. My mother-in-law made ours and it had flowers on it from someones yard. I say a bush that had pretty flowers and my mom went up to their door and asked them if we could pick some.

Hope you had a wonderful day.

Hello Dearheart...

Happy Anniversary my friend!!! Please extend my well wishes to your honey Mike as well!!! Wow...year number three, huh? But ya'll have been together for much longer! I always giggle...we have been married for four years but have been together for 8...we just decided we should probably make it official! Hehe! Both of our first marriages were pretty rough...I think we just waited to be sure...know what I mean? said that you burned your arm the day of your wedding. Girl, I cut my leg open on the corner of my dishwasher...had the door of it down and I turned around and ran right into it. So I had a nice big gash on my leg for our wedding day! Hehe! We got married in our church in the morning but had a big outdoor reception planned for all of our friends in our backyard! Ohh my, it turned out cold and rainy that last minute we had to change plans and move everything to the VFW hall.

Your wedding looked absolutely fabulous...and now that I've seen photos of your backyard...I can only imagine how truly beautiful it all looked!!! Kim, I love your's soooo beautiful!!! You looked absolutely radiant and Mike so handsome!!! Your love for one another is so apparent on your faces!!! Ohhh yes, I loved your cake too...gorgeous!!!

Well my friend, Happy...Happy 3rd Anniversary!!! I'm sending ya'll my very best wishes and blessings for many, many more happy years together!!!

Love ya,
