Our Award

Dan and I went to a young couple's Barbeque this weekend, hosted by a couple from our church. They gave out prizes to couples for different things, such as "Who woke up earliest this morning?" The couple that won that one got up at 5:00am. The couple that won "Who woke up latest?" woke up at 9:30am. We are so pathetic! Since when did we become old enough that no one gets up past 9:30?! Dan and I had gotten up at 7:30, so it's not like we can even talk, but it just makes me so sad...I remember the days of sleeping in until 11:00am.

Anyway, guess what we won?

Drumroll please....

"Longest married couple!"
Haha, it's true. Except that, when they got to this category, out of 8 couples there (and 8 prizes to be given out), 6 had already won prizes. So even though they had all been married longer than us, they didn't count in this category. We were up against one other couple, and lo and behold, they got married in March!

So, you may now refer to us as the couple with the title of "Longest Married Couple" at Fellowship Bible Church.

Thank you, thank you very much.

Oh goodness...

Joe, thanks for the comment! Hopefully we can all feel like we're actually more in touch through things like this and of course our Skyping experience...it was pretty much hilarious listening to you type and chuckle to yourself while you could see us but not hear us. We should definitely do that again sometime.
