Dos Anos

That’s two years for the non- Spanish speaking.

Dos anos ago, this happened:

Ah, sweet wedded bliss.

So today this week, things are going to be a little more mushy on the blog. I can’t help it. I love the Ninja. A lot.

Last year, I shared the details of how we spent our first wedding anniversary and I’ll be doing the same this year. I always (does two years count as always?) put the Ninja in charge of these things because he blows them out of the water. Seriously, so thoughtful. But until then, here are some of my favorite photos from the big day and the festivities afterwards. And these aren’t your normal cliche, picturesque photos (well a smidgen of them might be) but are the outtakes and hilarious candids from a day of love and laughter; family and friends. I even narrate – enjoy!

 We did this exact same thing at her wedding a few weeks ago – can’t
 keep a straight face around that gal!
 The Ninja missed the ‘be serious’ memo
 What’s not to love about this picture? They were in unison for a good 10 seconds. epic.
 Two reasons I like this photo: 1) I love having a picture of the Ninja and I praying together 2) My dad and the groomsmen decided to pull a little prank. Check out his shoes!
We stood in the door for a few minutes because we were supposed to wait for the music to change and it was awkward.
 Photo fail by the Ninja. I must have said something hilarious, as usual.
 Again, miscommunication between the photogs. I thought we were supposed to look gangsta, while Becca obviously went the more photogenic route. We did this at her wedding too.
 Andy, the best man, talked about how he warned the Ninja that I ‘was a handful.’ A handful of awesome! (notice the empty Crown Royal bottle so early in the night)
 I love all of these guys (well, most of them – right, Rooney?)

 Papaw and I

I love what a great big-brother my husband is – he’s going to be a fantastic father!
 Not our first dance but I love that the Ninja has some great dance moves now. He didn’t have any when we met – mega points to me for having rhythm and being able to teach him how to two-step and swing dance.
 The power of prayer with my best ladies
 Cheap shot, Ninja. Thank goodness for cousins to wipe cake off my face. Thanks, Court.

No wedding in Manhattan is complete without swing dancing at Longhorn’s. in your wedding dress. to this song.

 See? I told you I taught him how to dance.

  1. Happy Anniversary!! Love the candid wedding photos 🙂

  2. I'm so glad you danced to "Queen of My Double-Wide Trailer" — this is why we're friends.

    Also, congrats, Buzzard. Kestrel is so happy to get to have you guys in her life. (Totally just dropped the third-person bomb there. What is wrong with me?)

  3. I love the third person and also that you're in our lives. and that you love our song choice 🙂

    Thanks to you too Katlyn!

  4. Happy Anniversary to you and the Ninja! It's mind-boggling that it's already been two years since the FroBuzz wedding! Where did the time go? I'm so thankful I was able to be part of your special day and that I get to see your love for each other grow with time. (Ok that was a little mushy, but you did say it was ok to be mushy this week). Have an amazing time at the game tonight and cheer the Cats to a victory!

    I have a few favorite photos from my wedding: my dad and I walking down the aisle, all of us girls on the tractors with our boots on, and the outdoor photos of Adam and I.

    It's hard to pick a favorite from your wedding, they're all so good and you look gorgeous in all of them! Your dress was absolutely stunning! I'm going to go with the one where you guys are praying, and the other one you don't have on here, but it's a pose of you and the Ninja at the front of the church.

    Here's to many more years of wedded bliss! Love you both!

  5. Awwww – MJ you make me blush. Thanks for you warm words 🙂

    One of my favorite photos of your day is us all jumping in the air and being on the tractors. And doing the Thriller dance was pretty sweet too!

    Mush is ok but only this week!

  6. Congrats! I love you dress, it is so unique and gorgeous! I have a picture from my wedding of me dancing with my grandpa – like boogie dancing – he was the life of the party! It's even more special since he passed away this summer.

  7. I love seeing your wedding photos! You looked beautiful and looks like you all had a wonderful time! I can hardly wait until my big day!

  8. J – what a special memory for you to have – I am glad I was able to dance with my Papaw and have a picture of it as well. Your grandfather sounded like an exciting fellow!

    Sassy – Thanks very much 🙂 When is the big day again?

  9. So I LOVED your dress, and the shoe prank pic and well, the whole post. Congrats on two years!

  10. Thank you so much for the kind words!
