The one with the anniversary

Bride and Groom
Two years ago today, Joe and I were married. About a month later, I started this blog. To celebrate, Joe agreed to finally be featured! Today is our anniversary, so after you read this, we’ll be celebrating over the yummy dinner Joe said he’d make me. (I requested breakfast for dinner. What can I say? I love me some hash browns!)

I know Joe’s been briefly mentioned here and there on the blog, but he’s never really been introduced or featured, other than in these wedding photos.

Joe and I decided to do a “what he wore” feature to showcase his style and, obviously, his hippie hair. So, this is Joe:
Shirt: Punchline concert
Jeans: Pacsun
Shoes: Vans
Coat: Pacsun, with sewed on patches
Hat: Target

He didn’t really like having his photo taken. There were people outside, watching what we were doing, and Joe just thought I was nuts for doing this (alone) pretty much everyday.


His jacket is really cool. When we met (seven years ago), it had three patches on it, and now has over 100! It’s been our weekend project. We’d go to the record store, a concert, or (in a few instances) my parent’s house. My mom and dad (before he passed) gave Joe a few patches from their car show days, which Joe proudly displays on his coat.


Does having a coat this awesome make him an honorary fashion blogger?


The thing most people notice about Joe right away is his hair. It’s longer than mine and so curly! I love it. Sometimes he lets me braid it, but I really have to beg and promise him ice cream (he loves Ben & Jerry’s).

Shirt: Macy’s
Pants: Pacsun
Shoes: mine! (seriously.)

That’s another fact you guys might be shocked to learn. My feet are SO big, Joe can wear my shoes. So, sometimes, he does! We also wear the same size pants, although I’m (obviously) curvier than he is. But sometimes I like to borrow his cords because they’re very comfy!


I know you guys have met Loafy, but this is Ruckus, Joe’s cat. She’s very skiddish and pretty much only lets Joe hold her. She hates when I pick her up.


Yup. This is who I married. And I’ve loved every minute of our two years of being married and nearly seven years of being together. He’s hilarious, awesome and I couldn’t have asked for a better husband. Sure we fight about stupid crap (I’m HORRIBLE at putting my shoes away), but we also realize when we’re being dumb.

Thanks for doing nearly ALL of the laundry in the apartment and I’m glad I could go Office Space on our vacuum so you didn’t have to. I love you Joe!

  1. Congratulations! I also wanted to say that I love the Something Corporate patch. Must be more Something Corporate fans than I realized!

  2. Yay! Happy anniversary to the two of you! πŸ™‚ The two of you are so cute together! I wish you posted one new picture of you together here. XD

    Wow! Look at Ruckus… she looks comfy with him carrying her. XD I love the last photo. ^^

  3. Happy Anniversary! Love that he agreed to a post. My husband also thinks I am crazy for taking pictures of myself….

  4. Happy Anniversary!!!! I can’t believe it’s been two years! Hope you guys have had a wonderful anniversary πŸ™‚

  5. Happy anniversary! He sounds like a great hubby and you guys seem to have a lot of fun together! Hope you guys had a great day celebrating! πŸ˜€

  6. Happy Anniversary! Joe’s coat is awesome. It’s very sweet that he put the patches from your parents’ car show days on it.

  7. This is so sweet! I love the jacket. I used to have a bag with tons and tons of patches. I also love the hippy look. There is something refreshing about it. AND, the fact that you can share clothing and shoes is sweet. Congratulations on your anniversary! Hope your dinner was lovely πŸ™‚

  8. Saying goodbye to lurkerdom for now, just to let you know I thought this was the sweetest post ever πŸ™‚
    I hope you’ll be as happy for the next seven years together!

  9. Awww such a sweet post. I shared pants with my ex and LOVED it. REAL boyfriend jeans πŸ™‚
    Happy Anniversary to you two! I hope you got your breakfast for dinner.

    LOVE the wedding photo up top. You look lovely.

  10. Awww! I love this post! SO CUTE! I love his jacket! What an awesome way to remember things by!

    Your arguments sound like the ones I have with my boyfriend. I don’t think a week goes by without him getting annoyed with my 39573764 shoes around our apartment. Oops. :)~

    Also, I’m jealous of his hair. I want long pretty curls!

  11. So… I have an idea… instead of taking photos of your hair tutorials with your foot, you could do them on Joe and take the photos as you go along. What is that? He doesn’t like his idea? :)~ I actually think that would be quite a fun post. πŸ™‚

  12. Yay, hippie hair! My boyfriend has super long hair too and it’s so great. Your man’s jacket is definitely awesome. He gets a fashionable vote from me, haha! I also took a peak at your wedding photos… having differently coloured bride’s maid dresses was really cool.

  13. All Joe needs my brother’s Australian floppy hat and he is a member of my family! The only question I have is: How in the HECK did he get his hair to grow that long in two years? That wedding photo does not look like he has shoulder length hair and now it is down his back! If he can grow hair that fast, he should be dontaing to Locks of Love.
    What a lovely post…I am subscribing to your blod, I like you style and you are very interesting!!! Happy Anniversary week!!! Keep laughing at each other. That is the secret to a long marriage, be able to laugh at each other when the tension gets too high. Everything is funny or sad, my husband and I after 18 years are still laughing everyday!!!

  14. Joe seems so cool! I really like his jacket, and all the patched. That is so cool you can share shoes, and clothes. My boyfriend had long hair for the start of our relationship. It was to his shoulders at it’s longest, and my hair was shorter than his with my bob. He cut it because he was too hot all the time (he’s a cook). I’m glad we finally got to “meet” Joe.

  15. His hair grew that much in just two years?!?! Your dude has some mad follicle skills! LOVE the Led Zeppelin patch.

  16. awww how wonderful!!! more men should have long hair. I miss when my husband had long hair (it was probably the same length maybe even longer at one point than your husband’s). He prefers it short now though. :: sigh :: I love it though. Happy Anniversary to you both !
