Five

Five years ago today I celebrated New Years Eve in my apartment in Norman. My roomie was in Florida for OU's National Championship game at the Orange Bowl. I invited everyone I knew over, and they all came. It was a damn good party. But there was one guest in particular who held my attention all night- Shelton. For weeks we had been secretly crushing on each other and reporting this to all of our friends, who in turn told us what the other was saying. Shortly before midnight he and I were in my room building a play list of music on my computer. He grabbed my arm, pulled me in, and we had our first kiss. I couldn't believe it. "This is Shelton, the goob from Old Navy- what is going on here?!?!"- I'm thinking this and not quite sure what was going on. We shared the traditional kiss at midnight and I've been hooked ever since.

Althought Shelton says I'm not allowed to celebrate our "dating" anniversary anymore- since we have a wedding anniversary- I still find it significant, and being the sentimental sap that I am, I'm going to celebrate it!

There are people I can't spend more than 5 minutes in a room with, it just blows my mind that he's held my attention for 5 years. Granted, there are times when I can't spend 5 minutes with him- but those are few and far between.

We have shared a VERY crazy year. A lot of ups and and a lot of downs for us personally, professionally and with our families. I'm always sad to close out another year, but I'm beyond anxious to begin 2006. We had a blessed 2005 and I think only bigger and better things are in store for us in '06.

To all of you- I wish a prosperous, healthy and exciting new year!

brandi you never fail! Happy New year
