Tomorrow my husband and I will be celebrating our 22nd anniversary(-and family told us we wouldn't make it!) Probably won't do much, Told my husband I want to sleep in (at least till 7:00 (hey, getting up at 5:30 everyday to go to work, than thats sleeping in!) hes going to take me out to breakfast and then my parents are driving up from Houston and take us all out to dinner in town.
Other than that, nothing special.

Happy anv. to you guys
funny thing my side of the family begged me not to get married saying i was to young and he was to old for me. His family told him the same thing.
well 13 years later and three children we are still together we will be together 14 years sept 14.
Just goes to prove family don't always know best.

Happy Anniversary :) :) :D
Well, when I got engaged to my husband, we'd only been dating 8 months and my parents found that a bit disturbing, and then they thought we wouldn't last either -- but we'll be married 2 years in July and are still just as in love as the day we married. Hopefully I'll be able to say 20 years from now that we're still married... congratulations to you both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Anniversary Mary! 22 Years! That's getting to be a rare thing! Personally, I think you should sleep in at least 'til 8:00. Followed by breakfast in bed, and,.....?

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO CONGRATS!! I think I like Vicki's idea hehehe (wink wink)
My hubby and I went through the same thing as Rhonda. My parents offered me a brand new car of my choice if I didn't walk down the isle. I was 18 when we married and he was 21. Our son was a year old and I was pregnant with our second child. They swore up adn down he would hate the idea of being tied down with children and leave me. We have been together 13 years and have been married almost 10. And he would rather be home with his family than go out with his friends or co-workers. If the kids can't go with us, we don't go! Just goes to show you, mother and father don't ALWAYS know best!!
Congrats to you and hubby again! Any words of wisdom to us youngins on how to keep the sparks alive after 22 years??????

Well, Vicki I did take your advice, I slept in till 8:00, (Friday night, I went to play bingo with The Red Hat Society (its a group of Women who Wears red hats if you are over 50--however, I'm not so I wear pink), and I didn't get home till around midnight) my husband took me out to breakfast -went to IHOP and than when we got home my two sons helped me clean up the house so when my parents came up it didn't look too bad. After while they took us all out to dinner. (went to a mexican resturant that I can eat without too much problems.)
When we got married, we only known each other for about 9 months!(met at work.( it was our first day there for both of us) and when we married I was 22 and he was 27 and barely divorced. We have 2 children, one just turned 21 and the other will be 17 in June.
"As to words of wisdom", the only thing I can think of is to be honest(I know that is an old saying, but thats the only thing that I can think of) with each other. My husband is one of the sweetest men I know, he has been with me thru sickness and health (more sickness than health)
Thanks for all of your kind words!
