12 Years Married

This year for our anniversary I thought it would be fun to have a budget of $12 to go along with our 12 years of marriage. Since our anniversary fell on a weekend, we decided to celebrate close to home instead of wait for the summer to come, and then go somewhere, like we've done in many years past. Thanks to our winnings at the summer contest last year, and to Steve's company's Christmas present, we had some gift certificates at our disposal that helped us have a phenomenal time and keep under our 12 dollar budget.

This year, my mom watched our children while Steve and I went out to eat at the frontier grill, watched Avengers at the movie theater, and stayed the night in a renovated room at the frontier motel. We actually only spent a little over seven dollars for the whole celebration. We really enjoyed our staycation, and we were pleasantly surprised that the frontier motel had a nicely renovated room.

Steve and I have a blessed relationship and we love each other very much. Here's to twelve years!
