Happy 25th Anniversary Sue and Dad!!

Last Sunday (1/10/10) was Sue and Dad's 25th Anniversary! They wanted to celebrate by going to The Machine Shed for dinner. It was a fun night and I feel so blessed to have 2 great step-parents in my life.

I will never forget the night we met Sue. My dad told Lauren and I that a special person was coming to dinner. We were so excited to meet this new person. We were just hoping beyond hoping that it was someone he was dating. When Sue came to the door (keep in mind it was the middle of winter) she was wearing a puffy coat and it was kind of hard to see her. Lauren yelled to my dad "Dad, there's some man here to see you!" Yeah, it was Sue! She had dinner with us that night and we were just as smitten as my dad. In fact he was so smitten that he asked her to marry him the next week and they were married a few short weeks later. Seriously. They had their first date the weekend after Thanksgiving 1984 and were married January 10th, 1985.

Here we are 25 years later! Sue and Dad have been such a blessing to us over the years and I can't wait to see what the next 25 years will bring them!

We love you both!
Happy 25th Anniversary!!!

Surprise! We thought it fitting that for their 25th anniversary they have a cake with 2500 calories. The thing was hugely ridiculous!

This is AFTER 10 people had eaten it!
Great night with a great family!

I am only posting this pic, because that chin and hopefully 50 pounds will be gone by their anniversary next year. There you have writing. My New Years Resolution as cliche as it may sound.

P.S. - Let me add that I DID NOT have ANY of the aforementioned chocolate cake. Mainly because I don't like chocolate, but also because that would definitely not be helping the cause. :)

Did you mean 2500 calories per bite? or 25,000 calories? Cuz I'm SURE that cake had more than 2500 calories in it :)
Congratulations Mike and Sue. I didn't even realize what a short time they had been married in Aug of 1989 when I was introduced to the fam.

I just added a "P.S." to my post indicating that I DID NOT have any of that cake. :) I thought about it this weekend that it looked kind of silly for me to post about this huge cake and then say that I was trying to lose weight. :) An oxymoron of sorts. I even said no to the leftovers that were offered. Baby steps, but we are on the right track and Drew and I both will be slimmer by the end of the year!
