NFR: Ten years strong…

March 25, 2008 at 8:33 pm 24 comments

T and I met our freshmen year of college on a cold December night over a James Bond movie. We officially started dating March 20, 1998. Ever since then we have considered that our dating anniversary. Now that we’ve been married for almost 7 months, he says that he can’t be held responsible for remembering 2 anniversaries so the dating one was dropped but I still give myself a moment every March 20th to reminisce about the little things…

His: Memento
Her: Finding Nemo

His: summer
Her: fall

His: Pearl Jam
Her: Britney Spears (pre-KFed)

Radio station—

College degree—
His: BA in Political Science
Her: BS in Neurosciences

His: peanut butter
Her: kettle chips

His: non fiction, history
Her: fiction, chick lit

His: ice cream
Her: cupcakes

His: reese pieces
Her: swedish fish

His: banana
Her: strawberry

Bath or Shower—
His: bath
Her: shower

Type of food—
His: mexican
Her: italian

TV show—
Her: Project Runway

His: thanksgiving
Her: christmas

His: Foreign Policy
Her: Real Simple or random catalogues

Hmmm… Why have we been together so long?

They say that opposites attract. Apparently. LOL.

oh wait. We both like basketball! Thats something!

When people ask me why our relationship has lasted longer than the average marriage I really don’t know what to say. Its not some magic solution that I can give you. We have our ups and downs but I can honestly say after 10+ years, I love him more everyday. He is my teacher, best friend, courage, strength, guidance, heart…

My dear friend, Nikki, said it best:
“I think what’s most important is that you both love each other and you support each others’ passions no matter how different they may be…”

So true.

TO+CN = ♥

    Awww that last line (before my awesome quote which you forgot to link to) got me all teary eyed.

    I wub you guys and I just want to say I’m the perfect third to your marriage because I love everything both of you love, except basket ball. Maybe that’s why we get along I’m C+T all in one :P

  • 2. nikki57  |  March 25, 2008 at 8:52 pm

    Oh two other things

    1 – do not admit you like Britney Spears

    2 – it should be TO + CO … go CHANGE YOUR NAME BEECH

  • 3. CB  |  March 25, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    NIKKI, i am such a sap. I am sniffling. I admit that I hesitated about the Britney thing but I gotta be real. haha. About the name thing… I am working on it. Sheesh!

  • 4. nikki57  |  March 25, 2008 at 8:55 pm

    I have to be on T’s side with the name thing … I mean he is making it so you can come visit meeeeeeeeee I think it’s the least I can do

  • 5. CB  |  March 25, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    NIKKI, damn him for winning you over.

    BB, thanks for reading my ::cheese::

  • 8. beth  |  March 26, 2008 at 3:01 am

    That’s so sweet! I had no idea that you had been together for so long :)

  • 9. Caitlin  |  March 26, 2008 at 4:47 am

    Aawww :) I must admit, it’s nice to know that being so very different works out, because otherwise, me and the boyfriend would be doomed!

  • 10. NinaBeth  |  March 26, 2008 at 5:24 am

    Aww, you two are so sweet! J threatened to forget the dating anniversary too, so we just got married on the same date. :)

  • 11. April  |  March 26, 2008 at 5:41 am

    Okay this was seriously cheesy….and there is nothing I love more than some good CHEESE!!! : ) So freaking cute! I <3 You!

  • 12. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 5:56 am

    CAITLIN, I revel in the fact that we are so different. I have learned alot from T over the years and being a teacher he loves to teach me. So… when you and the boy toy tying the knot? huh huh? no pressure right? haha

    NINA, haha thats hilarious! I thought about that too but T was set on getting married in the summer b/c he’d be done with school. July worked out the best and I wouldn’t have met you either right? :)

    APRIL, oh its majorly cheesy! Sometimes you gotta cheese. wub you too.

  • 13. temperedwoman  |  March 26, 2008 at 6:11 am

    Hm, tell Nikki to be quiet, screw the name change. I still have my name and am perfectly fine with it. My hubby and I are exact opposites too~ I think I prob agree with your hubby’s picks more than yours tho, Brit? rly? Except for the cupcake of course! ;-)

  • 14. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 6:30 am

    TW, I do want to change my name but I dread going to the SS and DMV office. But I promised T I would get it done before our 1 year anniversary… so I have 4 months. Yes… really… Britney but pre-Kfed though. I do like other music but I’d say PJ is about as far as you can get from Britney right? haha.

  • 15. slush  |  March 26, 2008 at 6:51 am

    I hate to agree with Nikki (LOL) but I cringe every time I see you love Britney! It seriously makes me want to vomit. T needs to give you some lessons on music. He obviously knows whats up.

    Congrats babe! 10 years is a very long time, and you should be extremely proud. xo

  • 16. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 7:48 am

    SLUSH, LOL. I read T your comment and he said “agreed!”. You PJ fans are crazy loyal. I admit he’s turned me into a Depeche Mode fan though. I love Home off of the Ultra album. Do I get some street cred back now? haha.

  • 17. slush  |  March 26, 2008 at 8:16 am

    Hrmm. A smidge, but not much. You have a lot to make up for being a Britney lover. Its just down right wrong in too many ways to list.

  • 18. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 8:34 am

    SLUSH, well obviously she’s crap lately but pre-KFed, during the JT years were great. I think we’ll have to agree to never talk music again. haha.

  • 19. April  |  March 26, 2008 at 9:08 am

    Very Sweet! congratulations!

  • 20. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 9:11 am

    APRIL, thanks hun. Its been a great ride.

  • 21. Kristina  |  March 26, 2008 at 9:22 am

    wow! 10 years! That’s awesome:D I don’t get teary eyed, but if I did, this prolly would have done it lol DId you ever read my post about how Ben and I met ect.? If you’re in the mood for cheese, that’d be my recommendation! And talking about opposites attracting lol
    Also, though I’m not a Britney fan, I have been known to shake my bum to some pretty embarrassing pop and hip hop at the club, so I sympathize.

  • 22. CB  |  March 26, 2008 at 10:22 am

    KRISTINA, I am such a sap. I cry at movies ALL THE TIME so it doesn’t take much for me. haha. I did read your BU about how you and Ben met. Didn’t I leave a comment? Maybe thats why I like her… I like music that makes me dance. I admit its not for the lyrics. ;)

  • 23. nikki57  |  March 26, 2008 at 11:29 am

    TW – I only give her crap about the name change because I know she wants to do it but is lazy … I can’t really say much, my hubs is the one that changed his name

    SLUSH – shut it :P

  • 24. Kristina  |  March 27, 2008 at 11:14 am

    Nope, no comment, that’s why I thought you might have missed it. I wasn’t just trying subtly pimp my blog lol :D
