...after a whirlwind romance...
(Hoover Damn. One of our first dates)
...and a short engagement...
(Wearing a dress borrowed from my roommate which got fake wine spilled on it)
...and after we put this picture on our wedding anouncements...
(Notice, matching jeans, sweaters and haircuts)
...I got picked up in this Limo...
(Yes, that is a Motel 6 where I stayed with my parents the night before I got married)
...and I put on this dress...
...and I married this man, in this temple...
...and kissed my "husband" for the first time...
(You can really the see the matching haircuts in this pic)
...and I made my two BFFs wear these dresses...
(Sea foam green and mauve, the greatest wedding colors EVER!)
..and my hubby sang "Sweet Leilani" while accompanied by his dad on the ukelele...
(Leilani is my middle name, so it was very romantic!)
...and there was a cake that looked like this...
...that we smashed in each other's faces like this...
(they say that is a sign of what your marriage will be like. So, so true...)
...and then we looked like this..
...then we climbed in our diesel Rabbit...
...and rode away into the sunset...
...and we started making babies...
...and more babies...
...and more babies
...and more babies...
...and another one...
...and one more for good measure...
...and we lived...
...happily every after....
Happy 20th Anniversary Babe. I love you. Here is to 20 more!
That sort of made me cry, and I don't even know you people! How is it that you seemed to get younger and more attractive as time went on? What's the secret!? Anyway, this is a beautiful post, and thanks for your comment on my blog. :)
Happy anniversary, Linda!
Aww..that is so sweet! I love how you kept adding a picture of a new kiddo!
Happy Anniversary! Keep it up!
What a great post! It made me smile. Happy anniversary.
This post is awesome! Congratulations you two! I love the pictures...and our family has had at least 3 diesel rabbits! We are VW all the way! What a sweet couple!
HONESTLY just about the sweetest post I've ever read. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to both you and the Mr.!!! What a wonderful tribute to this wonderful life! WOW - 6 KIDS!?! I mean - I KNOW you have 6because I read it in your profile (I'm smart like that!) But to actually SEE them all - makes it like, real!!! ;) Congratulations, again! How wonderful!
Awwwww! Happy Anniversary!
Crazy how time flies and babies keep growing up. Happy anniversary to you both! We (hubs and I) are better people because we know you. LOVE!
Happy Anniversary! And look no more matching haircuts!
Thanks for your comment on MMB this morning! It is SO hard to work out sometimes, and I even LOVE to do it!
Congratulations on 20 years! That's fantastic!
Love your commentary on the pics too!
Happy Anniversary! i LOVE the matching hair-do's.
Happy Anniversary! I love the pictures and the "and another baby" narration. :)
Happy Anniversary! I love the matching hair styles more than life itself. It proves you two were meant to be together. Plus you obviously have good "chemistry" *wink,wink...lol! That's alot of young un's. Young un's are one of my other favorite things, besides matching hair.
Yay! Congrats! The way people are falling apart these days, 20 years is a gazillion in Hollywood-years. ;) Way to go!
Look at all that red hair! YAY!
Congrats you two!
And got better looking every year! Beautiful/funny/great post! I think I need a tissue...
Whatcha gonna do to celebrate? Have a wonderful time and try not to think about how he does that for a living. :) Like you said, at least he'll get some dinner in you first. Sorry, that was really inappropriate. Ew. Gross.
That's wonderful!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
That was so fun to see your family progress! Not fair you get cuter and cuter every year. I hope you have a great anniversary celebration and many more happy, blissful years!
Wow! I didn't know having lots of children makes you look younger.
Darn! I shouldn't have stopped at three.
Love this post. It is fun seeing you "through" the ages. You still look great. What is your secret. Was one of your brides maids, Yvonne Eager?
Wandered over here from Annette Lyon's blog when I clicked on your profile and noticed you're from Las Vegas. My husband and I have spent the last four years in Mesquite, so we relate:) Sort of. (Las Vegas = big, scary city, Mesquite = teeny, tiny town.)
Your wedding pictures are fantastic. It must be wedding-picture day, since I shared a few of my own on my blog:)
Adorable post. I loved the pictures over the 20 years. Happy anniversary!
Awwww! Happy Anniversary to you and the man. I love the story and the pictures.

The hair thing...too funny.
Six babies and twenty years...WONDERFUL...blessings to your beautiful family.
(I must say, your hair has definitely improved over the years. Love the current 'do.)
I must be emotional, because I think my tears welled up a little! I love Happy Anniversary stories!! Congrats! You two made pretty babies!
I loved this. You two are such a great example to me! I can't wait till I've been married 20 years with a a crazy amount of kids =)
20 years? First, congratulations! Second, you look amazing! Third, CONGRATULATIONS! :-)
What an amazing look at the past 20 years for you! You have a beautiful family and you look even better than you did 20 years ago! (it is an '80's thing)
"Sea foam green and mauve" - those were definitely the colors of that time, huh?
I have to say that this is the sweetest anniversary post I've seen. I absolutely looooove all the photos! Thanks for sharing and Happy Anny to you two!
glad to see your hair calmed down a bit there at the end. ;)
Happy anniversary. On my wedding day I gave my husband a 'if you want to sleep alone you'll shove that in my face' look. That has been a common look in our marriage so you might be onto something.
I'm jealous you look so great after 6 kids! Love your family pictures and very cute blog.
