For those of you who don’t know, I am engaged to my high school sweetheart, Troy! He’s my super hot, hilarious, best friend that I enjoy kissing.

Here’s how we celebrated the best 6 years of our lives so far:
Troy and I did not have this day planned out. We decided not to do gifts because, like I said in last year’s anniversary blog, we prefer experiences together over material gifts. However, he did bring me a slushie when he came to pick me up (brownie points for Troy).
First thing yesterday afternoon we drove into town and as we drove we talked about what we wanted to do that day. Which was basically a lot of “You pick”… “No, you pick”! Then Troy got hungry, so we went to Burger King and sat in the parking lot watching traffic as he ate lunch. Honestly, I could watch paint dry on a wall with him and still have a great time.
Then my mom called us and she asked us if we could come home and help her look for Bella (one of my cats). In our family, our pets are very valuable members… so everyone was really overwhelmed and worried trying to find her. We looked for 2 hours! We searched the entire house up and down and even went around our neighborhood. When we returned home from searching the neighborhood, she was sitting at the top of our stairs just looking at us- and we still don’t know where she was hiding!!! But all that matters is that she was safe and in our home.
Once we found Bella, Troy and I went back to his house to watch the first Super Troopers movie because I had never seen it. We cuddled as we watched the movie and enjoyed our relaxing afternoon after that rigorous cat search.
Around 6:00PM that evening we went to Red Lobster for dinner. I love this restaurant, but Troy doesn’t enjoy seafood so he just gets steak. I had shrimp linguine Alfredo, a side salad, cheddar biscuits, and a strawberry daiquiri! I think it is so sweet that he is willing to go eat there even though it isn’t his favorite. Dinner was delicious!
As we were eating, two of Troy’s buddies called him and asked if we wanted to go play putt-putt with them- so after dinner we did! I almost beat all three of the boys, I only lost by one stroke *pats self on the back*.
We had planned to meet up with one of our close couple friends to go see Super Troopers 2 that night, and the two friends we were putt-putting with were going to the exact same movie… so we all went together! The second Super Troopers was funnier than the first one (but beware there is unnecessary nudity in one scene). Finally, to end our night, all 6 of us went back to one of our friend’s house and played board games until 3AM.
We had a wonderful anniversary. It was casual, fun, and we got to spend time laughing with each other and hanging out with friends. These past 6 years with Troy have been the best 6 years of my life. It’s crazy to think that we only have one more “dating” anniversary to celebrate until we get married!
I am one lucky girl. 6 years down, forever to go.😍💍
