A couple of months ago Erick & I had the honor of being part of a styled bridal shoot at the Museum of Fine Arts with some of Houston’s most talented ladies. It was truly magical and I still can’t get over all the beautiful details. It was such a fun and wonderful experience + now we get to have these beautiful photos that truly mean the world to us. Such a beautiful forever memory and reminder of our love. -Complete vendor listing at the end of this post.
Today, 10 years ago, Erick & I said “I do.” It’s exactly 10 years ago today that I said yes to spending the rest of my life with the man of my dreams. This man who I am convinced God made just for me. Life with him has been more than I could’ve ever dreamed and hoped for. It’s been 10 years of growing, learning, loving and experiencing life with our two beautiful boys. 10 years where I’ve been reminded multiple times of the amazing love our Heavenly Father has for us. 10 years that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world♥
In honor of our 10 year wedding anniversary, I thought I’d share 10 random facts about Erick & I. Some of these are things that nobody knows and some will kinda give you a glimpse of who we are as a marriage behind close doors, and the small things that keep our marriage alive;)
♥ONE – We have the silliest nicknames for each other, I call him papa, papa bear, Danny Tanner (after the most famous dad in America of course, and because just like him, he’s SO obsessed with a clean/spotless home & car) Mr.B, Beltran and of course, babe, baby & honey. He calls me mama bear, coach Marty (inside joke, ask him about my NY accent lol), honey, babe & the lil’ mama.
♥TWO – 50% of our daily conversations include movie quotes, mostly from Home Alone 2. We seriously stay on joke mode 95% of the time. If I say something like “What kinda of dish washing is this??” hell say “The finest in New York” or if he gives me a massage I’ll say “Wow, what a whole!” Think we’re weird yet? lol.
♥THREE – We LOVE being together! We seriously do everything together since day one. I remember at the very beginning of our relationship both of our moms would tell us to give each other some space or else we’d get tired of each other real soon. We’d literally spend all day everyday together, almost like we needed each other to breathe. 10 years later and we’re still not sick of one another (well maybe when he’s being a jerk & vice versa haha). We truly are best friends and love each others company so much.
♥FOUR – He’s the shy one! He’s not exactly a social butterfly but everyone who meets him ends up loving him.
♥FIVE – He loves to prank me & I ALWAYS fall for it! I can’t tell you how many times he’s scared me to my core while I’m in the shower. I’m laughing just typing it;) He’s so good at sneaking up on me and enjoys giving me a good scare a little too much.
♥SIX – We actually fall asleep hugging each other. Any time he’s not embracing me, our legs are completely intertwined.
♥SEVEN – He does all the grocery shopping around here. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for that! I absolutely hate grocery shopping!
♥EIGHT – We secretly want to move out to the country, buy land, raise animals and grow our own organic veggies. Someday…
♥NINE – Neither one of us really likes eating out. We prefer and opt for home cooked meals daily, even if it’s something supper simple like hummus veggie wraps.
♥TEN – We love each other truly, madly, deeply.
Happy Anniversary Mr. B, I love you baby.
