It was our five year anniversary this past Saturday. After John went and mowed someone else's yard, we spent the day vegging out. It was mostly movie watching and naps. John was sick and Addison is teething. I sware that girl can bite. We also had take out from Old Chicago, which is never as good as when you eat at the restaurant because everything just gets soggy. But here is an overview of the past 5 years:
We got married on September 20, 2003 in Casa Grande, AZ. We were sealed on July 13, 2005 in the San Diego Temple.
We have lived in 2 states, 2 cities and 3 different homes/apartment
John has had 3 jobs, I have had 5.
We have owned 6 different cars, 3 lawn mowers, and about 2 million DVDs
For travel destinations we have been to San Diego (of course), Newport Beach, CA (thanks mom and dad) and Chicago (thanks AIB) We still want to go every where else.
We have also had our first child. She is the best of both of us.
I have to say 5 years is a long time. Neither of us have loved every minute of it, but it has definitely been an interesting ride. We love all of our family and thank them all for the wonderful memories they have shared with us.

I turned in my notice at work yesterday. Daycare ready or not, my last day of work at AIB is September 30th. I just feel stale here, and have for a while. I have learned what I came to learn here and that is bread. I feel like what was once my weakest point is now my strongest. I also hate watching my little girl grow through the stories of others. I have a friend who said it is so much easier on moms who work. I couldn't disagree more. I still have to do all the mom things when I get home, trying to shove them into the the 3 hours a day I get to spend with Addison. I also have a laundry list of house stuff, service stuff and calling stuff to do. It is harder. So I'm nervous and excited all at the same time.
I'm not writing this so people can congratulate me on my decision to be a "good mom." It has never been an issue of I wanted to work, trust me I want to be at home, it has been a money issue. I just wanted to let everyone know about it.
