Three Year Throwback

March 29th, 2008 - March 29th, 2011 = today is our 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!
I am so unbelievably happy and beyond blessed to be able to call Andrew Harris mine. I cannot believe that three years have passed since we have started dating during senior year at St. Joe. So much has happened in the past 3 years! I took the time today to look through some of my old pictures and it was so good to take a trip back down memory lane. Here are a few throwbacks..

Senior Prom 2008 - what a handsome date he was :)

This picture is from a weekend that I will never forget. We were seniors in high school and we came up and stayed with Andrew's brother and his fiance, now wife, Laura for Super Bulldog Weekend. This is the weekend that we started dating! A couple of months later, we both started school at MSU together!

This was after we had been dating for a few months. This was August 8th, 2008 - James and Laura's wedding!
 Since we have been dating, James and Laura have gotten married, and so have Allie and Brandon.  Matthew and Allyson had John, and James and Laura had Stelling. Andrew's family has totally adopted me as part of their family and I am so happy that I got to be a part of all of these special occasions. Andrew is part of our family now too and we are just so blessed to have such great families who love and support us!

This was at "My Tie", our first Chi O date party. Fun fun night, one of the many occasions where we danced the night away...one of our favorite things to do together!

Another date party freshman year...oh, the memories of Freshman year!

This was on our one year anniversary. We took a weekend trip to Memphis and toured St. Jude, went to the zoo, and saw a Mavericks game. This is our anniversary dinner at the Melting Pot. I will never forget that anniversary...we were so excited....one year was a big deal!

Over these past 3 years, I have become an official triathlon girlfriend. I am Andrew's cheerleader and #1 fan! And I do a pretty darn good job at it, if I do say so myself. This is us at Andrew's first half Ironman in New Orleans, April 2010. We will be going back to NOLA in two weeks for his second half Iron! So proud of him!!

This was at the beach when we went with Andrew's brothers and their wives. I will never forget that beach trip. I am so thankful for Matthew and Allyson and James and Laura who have all treated me like a member of the family since the very start!

Goofing off...what we do best!! Andrew's sense of humor is one of the things that I love most about him. He keeps me laughing ALL of the time.

Puppy parents :) Having this little "baby" has brought us so much joy and has brought us closer...nothing like sharing responsibilites of cleaning up tee tee accidents......sooo romantic :)

One of the many weekends spent tailgating and enjoying MSU football! Lots of priceless memories from MSU.
I could literally post a thousand pictures and try and go through all our memories...but no pictures or words can really capture the love that Andrew and I share. (I warned you that this blog would be cheesy!! I wasnt kidding!)

I prayed for years and years, starting when I was very young, that God would prepare the perfect man for me. I have always felt that my prayers were answered the day that Andrew came into my life. I thank God for Andrew each day, usually numerous times a day. I love him more and more each day. He is without a doubt my best friend. He is the first one I call when I am excited or upset, and he is my rock. God has given us these three wonderful years so far, and I cant wait to see what is in store for our future!

I love you Andrew! Happy Anniversary!!!

P.S. - The next post will be about Andrew's 21st birthday triathlon...details and pictures will hopefully make it up a little later this week! He did such a great job! The website is still up for donations.
