And If This World Runs out Of Lovers

The occasions for celebration are piling up around here. We are hip deep.

Matt's birthday was Wednesday.

Go Matt!

And our fifteenth anniversary is Saturday. Fifteen! And me still so young! Fifteen seems like a significant number, at least in our base ten numbering system. I guess an ancient Babylonian would be like, "What's all the hoo ha?"

Here's my post commemorating our anniversary last year, with pictures.

And here's the post that is probably most representative of our relationship.


Matt has a habit of, whenever I say the words, "fifteen years," bursting into some hip hop song that goes, "Fifteen years! Fifteen years! And then he found out that the shorty wasn't his!"

Yes. If it sounds like that would never get old, you are wrong about that.

That's my man. Infuriating and hilarious. Hilariating?

So to celebrate all this stuff that needs celebratin', we are heading up to the mountain house tonight, THEN we are leaving the kids with Mom and Dad and slipping away to Asheville for a night. We're going to stay at the Grove Park Inn, 'cause I've always wanted to check that place out.

I'm going to insist on the room that Barack and Michelle stayed in. Or, failing that, the room John Edwards and Rielle Hunter stayed in.

Or wait, maybe those are the same room and I could get double credit. Plus like nine other presidents have stayed there so the place is probably haunted. I will let you know.

I'm also going to cogitate about how our book club could work. Y'all have a delicious long weekend! All my loving! xoxox-B

Happy 15! If you get a chance, head over to Salsa, my absolute favorite restaurant in Asheville!

Amy said...

That sounds divine!! Happy anniversary! Y'all tough it out at least one more year, ok?

I'm pretty sure the shorties are his...since they look just like him. So you've got that going for you.

Keely said...

Yay, congrats! I'd have to agree with Amy, he'll have a hard time arguing that those shorties aren't sharing his genetic makeup.

Have fun!

Dear Dr. Sub Mat:

Geez, congrats on all fronts, now: bravo on the PhD, kudos on the lengthy marriage, and happy hubby b-day. A blog book club sounds fun since it will involve no house-cleaning prior to discussion. I'm in if the one I'm sponsoring at work doesn't kill me first.

But let's get to what's really critical here: your mention of needlepointing---my newly resumed passion. Please figure out a way to sponsor a cyber needlepointing stitch-and-bitch type of activity that does not involve Skype. You are a blogging phenom with a PhD in Brit lit so this will be a piece of cake for you.

PS The shelves of TJ Maxx where I live are sagging under the weight of all the Polish pottery they have stocked up on (maybe left over from the dorm surge); it's the kind you have written lovingly about on your blog. FYI in case you need to do any celebratory shopping. ;)

Happy anniversary! And congratulations on your diss in a box! And happy birthday to Matt. (Now I ain't sayin' he a gold digger...)

Celebrations all around, indeed. One might even say, "Holidays!"

Ash said...

Happy anniversary! Hope it was a wonderful getaway.

And I hope you requested the Obama's room - they do seem to have it going on, and thoughts of Edwards and his tryst gives me the mongo skeeves.

Ew.

Safe travels.

You know, I talk about your "sneaked/snuck" post as an example of how hilarious you are all the time and I went back and saw that I never even commented on it.

Anyways, mad love to you and Matt. Enjoy your night away.

Happy anniversary!!

Amy said...

I'm sort of feeling like I need an AV on the hip-hop. Dya think you could make that happen? I can't be the only one!

And I've decided that you know you're a loyal Matron reader when you can guess which posts she's tracking back to before you click :)

That's one intriguing inn. Please be sure to take pics! And Happy A.
