That photo is so sweet.

What a crazy day. Why do we do this to ourselves?

And did ya give it up for the man to celebrate your years of bliss?

Jodi said...

Well I'll be dam, tomorrow is mine and King Ralph's anniversary...Happy Anniversary to you!

DJ Kirkby said...

Happy anniversary. How dare you still be as slim as your wedding day photo? I've decided that I hate you...damn...

Kim S said...

Congrats! We should have a blogathon of wedding photos - and just link up. I was an early 90's wedding - that meant desperately trying to avoid shiny beads on my gown. Pearls I could do, but those encrusted gowns just weren't my style! Today? I'd go for a slender slip dress probably, no decoration at all!

Were you a Bridezilla? I wasn't too bad. Although one buxom bridesmaid didn't bring a bra and I went NUTS when I saw her floppy mams poking her her bridesmaid gown! I look at those gowns now and can only say I AM SO SORRY to my bridesmaids. They were pink, bowed, backdrop hemmed monstronsities!

Happy Anniversary Steph!

Your crazy day reminded me of days gone by with three boys, three baseball games and all at different baseball diamonds. Insane...

(Belated) Happy Anniversary!

cubmommy said...

Happy Anniversary!!! Hope you got some quality time after the kids went to bed.

Dim said...

Happy Anniversary!

Manic Mom said...

Thanks all for the anniversary wishes. And DJ--WRONG! I don't know where you got THAT idea, but there's no way I still look like that or fit into that dress. Which, btw, was the first dress I tried on.

Patti said...

happy happy day! and thank god for starbucks..you needed it. hell, i needed it after reading this.

Just A Girl In GA said...

Happy Anniversary. I don't know you but I feel like I do since I have lurked at your blog for awhile. Your Wedding Picture is Priceless (borrowing from MasterCard) but you life is much busier then their commercials.

Rusty Nails said...

Happy Anniversary to You! Share some Starbucks with Mr. Manic.

Our baseball season ends this weekend...and with it some of the craziness of shuttling, snacks and schedules. Yeah!!!

Lisa said...

Congratulations on your anniversary. I wore my mom's dress, which was way too plain to my teenage eyes. Back then, I wanted all the spangles and doo-dahs a gown could support. Thank god I came out of that phase.

Enjoy more bliss with hubby tonight!

Travis Erwin said...

Happy Anniversary.

Eileen said...

Happy Anniversary! Love the photo.

Patricia said...

Happy Anniversary! I hope you got at least 14 minutes of snuggle time in with Mr. Manic.

Trish Ryan said...

Awww....congratulations! It's nice to see Mr. & Mrs. Manic still happy after so many years (not to mention T-ball games)!!!

Colorado Writer said...

Oh, you guys are cute! Happy Anniversary!

Beth said...

Happy Anniversary!

Jenster said...

Woo Hoo!!! Happy Anniversary!!! I love the picture. (I'm stealing the idea of taking a digital photo of another photo because our anniversary is next Monday.)

So do you have plans? Just so you know, the traditional gift for 14 years is ivory, but that's illegal now so you're SOL there. BUT, the modern gift is gold/jewelry!

eatmisery said...

Happy Anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Manic! That's a beautiful wedding photo!

Swishy said...

You guys are such a cute couple! Happy Anniversary!

Angelena said...

Happy anniversary!!!

Im a day late, I know... but I thought I would break away from the poopie diapers and "MOMMY!!!'s" for 5 minutes to read....

So do we have a winner from the pathetic life contest???

Manic Mom said...

Thanks for the kind wishes everyone. Pathetic winner (or loser, however you choose to look at it) is being announced later tonight. Stay tuned.

Monnik said...

Your day sounds pretty chaotic. Hope you had a nice anniversary.

Hey, you guys are doing great, yesterday my husband and I both realized we'd forgotten our anniversary. But we decided it was okay, we were having a wonderful (quiet) Sunday, lunch at PF Chang's, flower shopping and window box planting, there wasn't a thing we'd change if we had remembered! Except we would have exchanged cards. I saved mine for next year, he on the other hand hadn't bought one yet, +1 point wife, -1 point husband (not that I'm keeping score).
