Happy Anniversary!!

Wow! It's hard to believe that five years ago today Matt and I tied the knot. We have had so many adventures along the way that I decided to devote this blog post to us. We have only spent 2 of our anniversaries together, but Matt has promised me for our tenth anniversary we can go to Vegas and renew our vows with Elvis. I can't wait!!

For this blog I have done a little research. I think my nerdy side is about to show through a little, but I was curious about some of the facts and figures. It entertained me for a little while and I guess that is all that matters! So, before we get started, here we are five years ago on our big day!

We look so young and less stressed back then. What's up with that?!?!

Let's start with some facts from when/where we met -- August 2000, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The number of....

  • days we have known each other:  3,975 (or 10 years, 10 months, and 19 days)
  • colleges we applied to:  3 for Matt, 2 for LeeAnn
  • apartments lived in in college:  2 for Matt, 3 for LeeAnn
  • combined years in undergrad:  10
