(Low or High, Take Your Pick) Class is Now in Session

Last Saturday was our 6th wedding anniversary, and accordingly, we decided to celebrate in 6th-anniversary style. So to the big city of Portland we went. The Benson Hotel awaited!

We drove straight from the coast, so we were sandy, sundrenched and not exactly at our cleanest to begin with. Nick and I made that even worse by going to Dairy Queen first. Why can't I keep Georgia Mud Fudge in my mouth and not on my shirt?!?!

The hotel lobby was amazingly beautiful. There was valet parking (neither Nick nor I were exactly sure how to use this rich-person staple -- take that, all you high schoolers who mocked me for being something I never was!). As we checked in, the concierge said, "Enjoy your honeymoon package!" Oh right....I forgot we booked that INSTEAD of the anniversary package, because it was a little cheaper....I looked down at my stained maternity top....

We came straight from the nearest trailer park, sir.


Low-class though we may be, we still walked into THIS....

And this...





All that romance I suppose, is how I got here....



But at any rate, as long as I'm with Nickolas, I'm like this....


That evening, we went to a concert just outside of Portland where I am positive that I was the only woman wearing a bra. Or who possibly owned a razor.
At a late dinner afterward, the waitress asked us if we wanted one check or two.

Will we ever look old enough for people to think we're actually married and not dating? Maybe at our 20th???
