Happy Anniversary to Us!
Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump
Everything felt good. Made sure to take extra long to stretch.
Anniversaries are always emotional for me, and today was no different. I love my husband more than he’ll ever know, and am seriously the luckiest girl in the world! I started the morning off right, laying in bed talking to Todd, followed by an easy run and of course pancakes! Thankfully, Riley woke up drool-less 🙂 I’m guessing she got a hold of a toad. She doesn’t eat them, she catches them in her mouth. They secrete a poisonous liquid that can cause a plethora of symptoms, including drooling. Even if it wasn’t that, I’m just glad she’s OK. Look at how cute she was when we first got her… pre-marriage. She was so small!
After seeing Cori do a post on her anniversary of several fun marriage questions, I thought it would be fun to link up with her and have Todd and I answer the questions to celebrate our third wedding anniversary! I answered the question before I sent them to him to fill out, so it was fun to compare our answers 🙂 Here’s a little glimpse into Mr. & Mrs. Winchell…
What are your nicknames for him/her?
Me: Baby, Love, Coach
T: Baby, Love, Monkey
List the first three adjectives that come to mind when you think of him/ her.
Me: Loving, Smart, Supportive
T: Beautiful, caring, loving
Why did you ask for/ agree to another date after the first one?
Me: There was something different (in a good way) about him… he was genuine and fun!
T: Because I wanted to see her again, duh.
Favorite current date night dinner place?
Me: We don’t really eat out, so most date nights are ice cream/froyo. But if I had to choose a dinner place it would be Osteria Natalina. We’ve only been there once but I loved it!
T: Sushi or DLites
If you had the entire day to spend together what would be your ideal day?
Me: No surprise here… run, pancakes, walk RY, maybe a movie or farmers market, a light dinner followed by some froyo and a nice massage.
T: Running, a relaxed breakfast, walking the dog, and just hanging out with an ice cream date later in the day.

Me: Amazing! It was SO FUN. The ceremony was short n sweet and we celebrated the night away.

T: There’s always someone to help with the bad times, and savor the good times.
What is your favorite vacation that you’ve taken together?
