Happy Paper Anniversary!

I hope the next anniversary isn't rock. Or scissors - probably even more dangerous!

In a little over a week Mr. Bee and I will officially be married a whole year. In reality we've been together for over 5 years, living in sin for 3, and loving every moment of it. I came across my old wedding journal (online of course!) and found our how we met and our about us that I wanted to share. 

Warning: You think it's going to be classy and wonderful, but it's not. Well, wonderful, just not classy. I hope you keep reading, it gets better.


I'm not going to beat around the bush. Steve and I met after I hit him up on MySpace. I thought he was cute, he wanted me to listen to his super hip band, and after exchanging several letters filled with witty banter it was decided he would come over armed with tequila to watch Family Guy box-sets and beat my pinata. He came over drenched in tequila-I was wearing a black party dress. In the midst of our inappropriate attire, we decided to go to the store to buy more, and my car ran out of gas. Steve saves the day! We pick up said tequila and saunter back to my house, where we proceed to beat the pinata and chase tequila with the limes in my backyard (that a few months later bloomed into oranges). I knew he was a keeper. 


I was on MySpace to promote my band. When I received a message from a very cute girl. She said I was cute and I tried to trick her into going to see my band at shows. After a few messages back and forth we decided to meet up for a Mexican style fiesta complete with tequila and pinata. I hopped in a cab and made my way over to her house. As I stepped out of the cab I misjudged the distance to the curb, falling face-first on the pavement, smashing the entire tequila over my chest. With no tequila, no car, and no glasses, I trudged up to her house.

A gorgeous woman met me at the door and had the good graces to laugh off my bedraggled appearance and recommend that we go to the store to get more tequila. When we got into her car, the engine wouldn't start. I called AAA, and a tow truck came to fix this problem. To this day, I believe that nothing happened to her car, and she was just helping me save some face. After the car was fixed, we headed to the store for tequila and Mexican candy made out of sugar and lead. We returned to her house, beat the pinata, had some drinks, and in general had the best night I had had up to that point in my life. Somehow, I managed to trick her into letting me stay and I just kind of never left.

Our engagement:

Steve and I had gone to Disneyland on Halloween and since I'm obsessed and I've never seen the Christmas decorations we decided to go back in December.

So we get some hot cocoa and see a worker taking pics in front of the castle so he says, "Hey, let's get our picture taken!" And since I am corny I say yes.  So we put down our things and get our pictures taken

One of my old friends went to Disneyland a few years ago with a boy she was with and he pretended to propose to her so they could shock everyone and get a rad picture, seen below:

So Steve says, "Hey, wouldn't it be funny if we took that picture that Reifman took?" I thought that was the best thing ever, so he starts positioning me to look surprised, and then he said, ok, so she was there, and Tyler was like this on his knee, ok, look surprised-so I did my best surprised look and then he said, No, but for real. Then he took out the box with the ring inside and they snapped the picture which looks like this:

And the rest is history! I love him more than Chipotle. This is saying a lot. We've already been through a lot in our relationship, but there's no one I'd rather whine about being poor with.
