Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Blast From The Past: Me And My Husband Bill (1999)

We are in need of a specific document that we can’t find and are literally ripping the house apart today to try to find it. While in the process of dissecting the basement, I came across this box of pictures. Printed pictures. What are those??? I’m so confused!

🙂 Ah – the digital world.

Anyway, I got a bit nostalgic and scanned a bunch to keep on the blog.

New Year’s Eve – at the Crab House in Long Island City with my whole family.

Our first pumpkin picking adventure. Bill looks SO YOUNG HERE! Oh my goodness. How time has flown by.

I was in college and working on a marketing project at the Albany airport. Bill came along for support. I think we were filming that day. Can’t really remember.

We were both is Delta Sigma Pi – and this was the night of our formal.

Notice the chain on my neck? It was a military tag. We each wore one and had them personally engraved.

This is a pretty funny story actually. Bill and I went to Aruba and we were in a restaurant (not married or engaged). The host asked all the married couples to come on the dance floor. 90% of the restaurant stood up and went center stage. Then the host asked for all the engaged couples to join the married couples. Everyone but Bill and I stood up. Then the host said – Now the couple that’s just living in sin – STAND UP! I was mortified!! You can see it in my face. Someone took our camera and snapped us. LOL

Same trip. We had so much fun!

We visited the vineyards that summer.

Here we are in  Maine a few months later.

And celebrating Christmas together

This was in 1998 actually because I remember that couch. This was Bill’s place in Albany.
