Happily Married: 2 Years and Counting.

Warning: this post will contain major sap. But it being about my dashingly good-looking husband and our anniversary, I think this sap it justified.

We had such a great Two-year Anniversary. We decided to go all out, even though we are trying to save money for when baby girl gets here. We decided it was our last anniversary without babies, so we would do something special. So I (it was my turn to plan this year) booked us a room at the Anniversary Inn in Logan. And it was totally worth it.

I originally booked one of the cheapest rooms I could find, Aphrodite's Court. It was, like I said, one of the cheapest ($99 a night if we booked Sunday thru Thursday). Well a week before our anniversary, I got a call from the Anniversary Inn saying our room was under maintenance, so they could give us any other room for the same rate. So instead, we found ourselves in the Hawaiian Paradise room, originally $199 a night. Boom UPGRADE!! And we were not disappointed in the least.

So Sunday we packed up our things and headed to Logan for one of the best weekends we've had in a very long time. After check in, we exchanged gifts. Sam got me the cutest purse and earrings. He picked them out himself, and did a fantastic job. And since I live for purses, I was super excited. He done good. I got him a camcorder. I decided it was a good present for a future dad, and really, it's for both of us. He loved it. I was worried I was buying it for me and giving it to him (because I've wanted one forever before we have a baby) but I was pleased to know that he does love it. The rest of the time, we just relaxed, played in the awesome shower and HUGE jet tub, and enjoyed our complimentary cheesecake and sparkling apple cider. In the morning we had a yummy breakfast delivered to our door. I felt like we were on our honeymoon all over again. Except thankfully on our honeymoon I wasn't so big with child.

After we checked out of the room at 2 on Monday, (our actual anniversary) we stopped by our favorite restaurant in Logan, The Bluebird. I got the famous Bluebird Chicken and Sam got a Ruben (death) sandwich. And I suppose we did look like honeymooners, because when I got up to use the bathroom a cute little lady saw my belly and stopped me and said, "I thought you were on your honeymoon, but I guess not!" I told her it was our 2 year anniversary and she congratulated us. But I guess we still have it.

After a depressing (on my part) ride home (I didn't want to leave ever) we went to see Source Code. It was a very good movie in my opionion. When we got home from that, we ate left over Bluebird and watched Veronica Mars and Lost, while I slowly got back into reality and did our laundry.

So here is where the sap comes in, the part where I express my undying love to my most wonderful husband. As most of you know, (or all of you...I feel very few people read this blog that wouldn't know) Sam and I have been together for a long time, starting out just as little adolescent teens. I thought dating Sam was fun. And it was. I have very fond memories of being his girlfriend, especially after high school. But nothing compares to what these two years have been. I can't even put into words how much I love my husband, and how much that love grows daily. He makes me laugh, he makes me feel pretty, and he still makes me feel swoony and dizzy when he kisses me. He doesn't care when I cry over dumb things, he'll just sit and comfort me. He has cleaned up my puke from just about anywhere you can imagine, and when I can't sleep because he is breathing heavy or snoring, he'll just go on the couch without complaint. (much to my guilt however.) He is so thoughtful. He is always putting me first, sometimes putting my selfish wants before his own. He is understanding, kind, considerate, and very much a gentleman. And he is the most handsome guy I know. I don't know how I got him. I don't know how I tricked him into loving me back, but the best part is, is that he does. He is the best husband I could ever ask for. He is all that and more. I love you, Samuel James Tappana. I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. I will love you forever.

Hey I warned you about the sap.


  1. Awe, that was so stinkin sweet! I'm so happy you guys got married :). I told Tim when Sammy was on his mission that Sammy would be super lucky if you waited for him...and that we as a family would be super lucky to get you. Which we did. And it rocks :).

    I LOVE the Anniversary Inn in Logan and I'm so glad you weren't disappointed! Tim and I stayed in the Hawaiian Paradise room about two years ago and we loved it too. I guess that's kinda weird...but oh well :). Awesome you didn't have to pay for the upgrade either!

    Happy Anniversary, and here's to many many many more to come :)

  2. You two are one of the cutest couples ever! I wish we were as cute as you guys sometimes.

    I'm glad you had such a good anniversary before your baby comes. Most people take a baby-moon before the baby and this can count too! Unless you wanted to do another trip... hey perfect excuse ;)

    Happy Anniversary!!

  3. ahhh i LOVE the sap. and the funny bits as well. this is super cute.
