18 Years and an Auto Show

     Yesterday marked my 18th wedding anniversary! Dan seriously is my best friend.  We do everything together (even the house cleaning and food shopping).  We do not always go all out when celebrating.  I am not one of those wives that expect flowers, gifts and a big dinner. This might be different if our day did not fall between Christmas and our daughter’s birthday!  Nope, I am fine with keeping it simple. I told dan we will go big for our 20th. This year, I suggested we go to the Philly Auto Show.  We both like to look at cars so it really just made sense to spend the day together doing what we like.  So, we hopped on the train and made our way down to Philly.  We were starving when we got there so we decided to get a spot at the Hard Rock’s bar and get a bite to eat.  Two entrees, 2 hours of music videos and 4 drinks each later, we remembered WHY we were there in the first place and made our way to the convention center show room.  Seriously, I can sit there all day watching old music videos! Anyway, the show was great. We had a good time looking at and sitting in cars we may never afford, some that are on our radar for future purchases and others that we poked fun at.  The only complaint I had was the fact that people were letting their kids climb all over the inside of the cars, sit in the driver’s seat and not remove them as other adults were waiting to check out the cars!  If it wasn’t for already feeling relaxed, I may have gotten more upset at the time.  One lady took a phone call and turned her back while her kid was screaming for her form inside the car.  Unbelievable.  This is exactly why we pregamed first! LOL

I have some pictures from the day but for some reason, I can not attach them without them being HUGE.  However, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram (flong1975), there are on there! Sorry! I am still trying to get the hang of that part of blogging.

  1. I think its very inspiring to read about a couple that have been together for 18 years and still have a good relationship. My parents were married for 26 years and then at the end of last year told my brother and I (we are early/mid twenties) that they are getting a divorce. It really flipped my world/perspective of them upside down and made me wonder about my own life in the future. Any tips you wish to pass along since I hope that one day I find my 'team mate' I will end up more like you guys rather than my parents?

  2. Dan comes from a line of divorced relatives – our marriage alone has lasted more years then his mom's three! I can say that because she admits it too – LOL. Plus the fact that we were married at 19 with a baby on the way, we really have beaten the odds. I think it helps that we have so much in common but yet we are opposite in some ways too. We balance each other out. When I think about the future, I see us growning old and enjoying life. When we first met, I just knew he was “the one” – no doubts. We rarely fight and are still inseperable after all these years. When I get asked what makes a happy relationship, love is the most obvious answer. However, I think compromise is a HUGE factor. You will not agree on everything all the time. It really is a give and take.
    Everyone has a soul mate. Some people just take a few tries to get it right. You'll find yours too :0)
