4/20 National Taylor and Daniel's Wedding Anniversary Day

4/20 is a date well known for many different reasons.... national marijuana smoking day, the anniversary of columbine and Hilter's birthday to name a few. Thanks to my amazing ability to see 4/20 on the calendar as April 20th with no subtext of why this is probably not the best date for a special occasion... I choose it as my wedding date! Thankfully, I feel WAY less dumb about that knowing 3 other upstanding couples who share the same anniversary.

Today Daniel and I have been married for 4 years! (Insert wedding photos here) I totally would but I don't have them on my computer and I tried to save them from FB and upload them here and facebook won't let me steal my own pictures. CRAZY. Here is the link to some wedding pics if you'd like to take a looksy. I'm kinda fond of the day! :) If the link doesn't work, check FB and scroll down about 50 albums or so and you'll find it. It's the one of me in the large, puffy white dress. Hard to miss! :)
This year, Daniel and I went to our favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory for our anniversary dinner. It is seriously so good. I've never had anything there that wasn't amazing. My mom watched Parker for a few hours and I loved the pictorial she texted me throughout the night so I wouldn't worry. Next, we did what every couple who has been married for 4 years and has a 2 year old and soon to be newborn would do.... we went to Gymboree and bought a hat for Parker then sunglasses for Daniel at the mall kiosk. Next, we deposited a check in the bank and made a quick stop at Lowe's Home Improvement for new hose splitter. It was one heck of a sexy evening. We capped the night off cuddling on the couch while watching Extreme Couponing, wondering "what is that lady going to do with 93 bags of croutons?"

For those of you who AREN'T married or are newlyweds, you must think this was the worst anniversary ever. No cards. No flowers. No pom and circumstance.... but it was perfect. It was us. Low key. Quick. Early (Dinner was served by 5:45) and we were home in time to put our freshly bathed little man to bed. We wouldn't have it any other way! :) Well... I would have... spending it in the hospital, birthing this not so little lady would have been preferable BUT cheesecake, a new hose splitter and extreme couponing is a close 2nd! :)

Speaking of the not so little lady growing inside of me... I've decided her birthday should be 4/24. It fits my schedule and how perfect is this: Our anniversary is 4/20, Parker's birthday is 3/21, Daniel's birthday is 12/22 and my birthday is 2/23. Get it? 20, 21, 22, 23.... since we've already missed the 19th, she must be holding out for the 24th.  :)


  1. Too funny Taylor, very entertaining. Now I better get back to work!

  2. Taylor you're too funny!! Happy Anniversary!! Our anniversaries tend to be about the same, except we head to Melting Pot :)

    There's a trick on Facebook, if you're tagged it whatever picture, click "make profile picture" then it will take you to the 'old' photo album, and you can click through and save the same way you used to :) I think there's also a download button you can use too, but it's a pain.

    Hope Avery comes soon!! I'll be praying for the 24th! :D
