Ok, Ok – I admit it – I didn’t actually go all that low-key with this anniversary surprise.  I think Emerald has been encouraging me to be more courageous! I just HAD to surprise the Hub-Hub with this super-awesome photo shoot for our big 5 Year Anniversary!

5 years ago we had a rainbow wedding.  33786_516426815871_560235_n


When I was planning my wedding, I thought it would be fun to have a reception at an amusement park.  I imagined how exciting it would be to spend the entire day riding rides and eating fair food with my family and friends.  Most importantly, I dreamed of having my picture taken in my wedding dress on the ferris wheel – not too mention all the other great photo ops we would find along the way!  Unfortunately, my wedding budget just couldn’t quite handle that.  So we decided to morph that idea into the theme of the wedding.  We had bright colors, a popcorn bar, cotton candy, balloons everywhere, and miniature white ferris wheels on the tables.  If we couldn’t go to the amusement park, then we were going to bring it to us! It was awesome!

Fast forward five years – I am driving past the county fair grounds on my way to work when I get a wild idea. Mind you, this was Wednesday.  I messaged my sister-in-law to see if she would mind taking pictures for us and called my hair salon to see if I could schedule an up-do – um….. for the very next day?!?.  By some miracle I was able to get both of things coordinated and a plan was formed!

On Thursday, I went and bought the Hub-Hub a new shirt and tie while he was at work. I also went and got my hair done – super fancy. Hub-hub knew there was a surprise coming when he got off work, but had no idea what!  He was sure shocked when I came downstairs in my WEDDING DRESS!

He changed into his new clothes and off we went to the fair for a fabulous photo shoot to commemorate our five year anniversary!  And I *finally* got my ferris wheel pictures!  I was so nervous that Hub-Hub would think it was silly – but he loved it! What a great sport! I’m glad I didn’t let my fear hold me back!
