Two years since he kissed me (I mean the first time...he's kissed me since. it would be weird if he hadn't).

Yesterday was Inspector Climate and my anniversary.  We have a traditionally anniversary celebration. I cook him the dinner I cooked him two years ago (quiche with a potato (ie gluten free) crust with broccoli and caramelised onion and capsicum) and we watch the movie we saw on our first date: 500 Days of Summer.

I tried to convince Inspector Climate that we teach the bridal party this dance for when we walk down the aisle after being pronounced husband and wife (with Ellen in tow...obviously):

But he is refusing. REFUSING to shimmy, ladies and gentlemen.  And this is the man I'm marrying?

Yes, yes it is.

He is also the man who while I was on my lady holiday feeling sick he made me dinner, baked me gluten free crackers (FROM SCRATCH) and withstood several crying episodes that, trust me, NO ONE enjoyed. And then when I was lying on the couch practising my moaning he ran down the street to get me some Ben and Jerry's Phish Food ice cream.  Y'all if that is not true love, I am not sure what is.

We're getting married now in mere weeks and I couldn't be more relaxed about it.  This is who we are:
And I quite adore us together.

So, here's to many more years of twists and shouts, kitchen dance parties, and Ben and Jerry's ice cream.


  1. Absolutely adorable! A keeper indeed, even if he won't shimmy down the aisle :)

  2. a man who runs down the road to get you ben and jerry's is definitely one to keep :)

  3. Awwww... You guys are adorable. :)

  4. I'd pick the guy who'll run out for ice cream over the guy who shimmy's anyday!

  5. You guys are so cute! Inspector C. reminds me of that actor, whose name I can't conjure up, who was the kid who killed himself in Dead Poet's Society (I think, or was that Ethan Hawke?)and is now starring as the sidekick/roommate in "House." Cute!

  6. Happy anniversary! The title cracked me up :)

  7. Aw, how sweet. Yes, you must to get him up dancing.

  8. You are a lucky girl - but he is lucky too! Congrats on the anniversary!

  9. Well, I quite adore you two, as well! What a wonderful guy..and what a perfect first date! I heart 500 Days of Summer.

  10. 1. Dawwwwwwwwwwww. You two are pretty much the cutest things of ever.
    2. Confession: I've never seen 500 Days of Summer. I may now have to move it to the top of my Quickflix queue.
    3. That dance is freaking awesome. Maybe you can persuade him to do it without the shimmies?

  11. Aww this was the cutest post! Happy Anniversary- the meal sounds lovely and I like how it was from 2 years ago like the film- what a nice idea!

    I can't believe he did all that stuff for you when you were 'sick' ;) he is certainly a keeper, you look really cute together! xx

  12. What a great guy you have! I'd be willing to overlook the lack of shimmy-ing for the ice cream run. Don't be fooled - men know the power of ice cream. Whenever Max thinks I'm pissed off at him, he'll come home with a pint of something creamy and delicious. Then I will forget why I was mad at him.

    OMGgettingmarriedsoon!!! :D

  13. GAH! That is amazing. I am so happy for you, you can't even imagine. Have you picked out a dress yet???

    I think The Boy needs to take a few hints from Inspector Climate... :P

    Happy Anniversary!

  14. Haha, your title totally made me giggle. You two are too cute!

  15. I don't even know you that well...but I adore you too. And I adore your blog and I am so happy for you. Love reading through all of your witty and funny posts and this one is no exception! You guys are great for each other!!! xo

  16. congratulations! here's to many more anniversaries!

  17. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

    Ps: Inspector Climate better get on board for 500 Days of Summer Aisle dancing, because it's happening :D

  18. Awww - so sweet. CONGRATS!! Hope you guys have many happy years ahead :)

  19. I LOVE everything about this post!!! I put that video up on my guys wall probably monthly... lol And it is BLASPHEMOUS that he refuses to do it! And shimmy!! :P I am appalled. Thank goodness for loves that take care of us when we feel like poop. You guys are really stinkin cute :) This just all made me smile!

  20. You guys are absolutely the cutest ever and I know that you will be an amazing married duo! =)
    Never seen the movie but this dance scene was cute.

  21. This is such a cute post, I love that photo of you two!!! though I think we should start a petition to get him to agree to do that dance at your wedding :p

  22. Happy anniversary! You two are adorable. Also. I feel like if you tell Ellen that you're doing that down the aisle, there's an even better chance she'll come.

  23. Adorable video!
    Take a look at my blog, and if you like it follow me, I’ll be waiting for you!

    Cosa mi metto???

  24. I remember reading your blog waaay back when we were trying to find you a fella. I'm so happy for you and the Inspector! He might shimmy in a weak moment...

  25. Happy Anniversary Dear Deedee! Hope the countdown to the wedding is going fabulously for you!! You guys are adorable together, I love that you accept him for all that he is... it comes across so beautifully in your posts. Often we complicate things focusing on what we can change in other than what we love... Cheers to you and the inspector :)
