8 Years & Counting

Eight years ago yesterday (January 21st) my husband and I made it official that we were dating. We were 18 years young and he took me out to Mountain Mike's pizza. He had planned to play a song from his phone to hint that he wanted me to be his girl. Well, it must have been destiny because as we were eating the exact song he planned on playing, came on the radio! It was Jet's "Are you gonna be my girl?" I kept saying, you planned that! But really, how could he have planned for a radio station to play a song at a certain time? It's possible, but he didn't plan it. Obviously I agreed to be his girl and here we are today, eight whole years later and I'm more happy today than I was then. We have been through a lot together, and never once thought about quitting. God is our center and that's what keeps our relationship strong. 

For our 8 yeariversary we went out to one of our favorite restaurants: The Branding Iron. I only took one picture of our food because the place was packed and Michael said he wasn't taking a picture of his food. So I snapped one of mine, checked it later and it was pretty dark. I got a French dip tri tip sandwich (my fave) and he got a huge bacon burger. 

On a much less corny note, here's a pic of the fam. We can't get a normal photo to save our lives.

Yesterday I also did another one of Ashley's workouts. You know, the cool chick from KickAshMom
I warmed up with some IT band exercises: Side steps w/resistance band
Clam exercises
Hip Abductors w/resistance band

I'm really loving planks. I feel the burn all over my abs. 

Followed by:
 1 round of Plank It Up
2 rounds of 10's Cardio Workout
Single leg squats (10 each leg-my left knee was starting to ache)

Finished up with Yoga for Runners
Cool Down

Do you like planks?
How was your Wednesday?
