30 day challenge

April 14, 2011

In keeping with my thirty theme this week I have decided that this is the perfect time for me to complete the 30 day challenge.  I loved reading some other blogger’s answers to the questions and it I think it would be good for me to even learn more about myself since I entered a new decade and all.

So I guess I will just get started with Day 1: My current relationship status. Well I am married to Keith (our anniversary is this month on April 30th (Sheesh…30 is everywhere!) and we will have been married for 5 years. As it states on my about page Keith is 11 years older than me and I have known him my entire life. Our families have a long history and thankfully so!

One of my fondest memories of Keith growing up was when I was 15 and our families had all gotten together at a roller skating rink (haha…remember those?!) for a Bat Miztvah party for Keith’s niece. I was smitten and thought he was so H-O-T! I was 15 and going through all my awkardness…braces, skinny, frizzy hair…you get the idea. But Keith was one of those fun-loving types who played with all the kids. Twirling the girls around, racing the boys, just a good guy. At one point the skating rink DJ started throwing out those plastic beaded necklaces. Everyone was wearing one, adults and kids alike. Everyone but me. I hadn’t gotten one. So Keith took off the red necklace he had on and gave it to me. So would you believe that 15 years later I still have that red necklace. I told you I had a crush on him! Persistence is key people! haha!

So I developed a crush on him when I was 15, married him ten years later when I was 25, and we will be celebrating our five wedding anniversary at the end of the month. I feel so blessed. I truly believe that Keith and I were made for one another. We’ve been through a lot in our still relatively new marriage but we are one another’s best friends and we love one another so much and I could not ask for more.

    I haven’t seen a 30 day challenge with these “challenges”! They’re much better than the other ones I’ve seen so maybe I”ll have to participate, too!

    How fun! I like that the questions are all different. The cleanse I’m doing is called the 24 Day Challenge and it’s through Advocare. If it’s horrible, don’t tell me. 😉 I purposefully didn’t tell you (ha) b/c I didn’t want to know if it was bad. Mainly I was just using it as a jump start to get me eating better. Focus is on eating more fruits/veggies and less processed food, so I figured that side of it couldn’t be too bad!

    I love this!!

    You know, normally when people gush about how much they love their husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/whomever, I get annoyed, but everytime you mention Keith it makes me smile. 😀
