Oh, yes we did.

A few weeks ago, we somehow came across the fact that we'd been married for 99 days. I jokingly told Matt that we should have a 100 days party like in kindergarten. He, uncharacteristically, didn't even play along with the idea... and thus inspired me to tease him with an actual celebration.

When Matt came home the next day, he was greeted by this poster (made with 100 marshmallows, of course) and an entire itinerary for the evening. Luckily for him, it was a rainy day without anything else to do than have a party for 2.
Matt laughed for about ten minutes straight upon seeing the poster, and we continued to laugh at ourselves throughout the rest of the night as we celebrated our first 100 days of marital bliss. We kicked off the evening with dinner at our favorite southern BBQ restaurant in nearby Prattville.
Jim 'N Nick's is incredibly delicious, thanks mostly to its signature BBQ sauce. Their lemon cream pie is also a must.
After dinner, we headed home to our hotel room to continue the celebration.
Remember the "friendship mix" you made 100 days into kindergarten? Yep, this is our "love mix." (If we'd been in our real home, I would've also purchased a "love fern" ala "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." Just because I enjoy being ridiculous.)
I'd also counted out 100 Hershey's Kisses earlier that day (because, seriously, what else do you do in a hotel room during a tropical storm?). We used them to play a little 5-minute game where we came up with 100 things we love about each other. Some of them were sentimental and sweet, such as me loving how Matt, on days when he has to be out of the room at an early hour, will get completely ready with the lights off so he doesn't interrupt my sleep until he comes to kiss me goodbye. But most of them were silly things and inside jokes that had us rolling on the floor laughing.

You know what, though? Even though it was a cheesy game that we were playing as a joke, it was neat to spend even just that short amount of time sharing what we love about each other and laughing together.

I don't think you can ever do those two things too much.


  1. you guys are so cute! can't believe its been 100 days already. glad you guys are still as happy as ever :)

  2. That is seriously so cute! I loved hanging out during Jaleah's day. I am honored to be a late bride's maid...it's as good as I'm going to get :) I'm very impressed how well you keep up with your blog! Keep it up!

  4. Even though both of you thought it was cheesy, you'll both never forget it! I bet you and Matt are having a blast being married and being able to spend more time with each other. I'm so happy for both of you. I miss you so much and wish we were able to see each other the last time you came down. Please please please let me know of the next time you are coming. I'd love to see you and catch up!! Luv ya girly
