Five years ago today........

.....this is what I was doing with my day. :) Me and Ioane got married in the Laie, Hawaii temple on June 26, 2003. I'm so grateful for this him! He is such a good man. He works hard to provide for his family so that I can stay home with my babies. He plays with his kids and loves being a father. He is a good husband to me (even when I fail to realize it). He puts up with me (and I don't think many people could do that)! Nobody can drive me as crazy or make me as happy as he can. Things are NOT perfect by any means, but I couldn't imagine life without him. I love this husband of mine!

It's funny how time makes you forget. For some reason I thought that we had 10 people on each side of our line, but we only had 7 people on each side. This was our line. It consisted of both friends and family.

This was our MC, Lei. We had to fill out a questioniere before hand and give it to her and we played a game and for every question we could answer right about each other, we got some money!

We had lots of good entertainment! Ioane danced at the Polynesian Cultural Center, so he had lots of friends that were willing to dance at our reception. It was fun. This is a picture of Ioane's sister Milika performing.


They made me do a "Samoan dance" when I had no clue what I was doing. At least I had danced in the Tongan club culture nights and I could have somewhat faked that, but I had NEVER dance a samoan dance before!!! It was the worst part of the whole day.......


.......but I did get money for it, so I guess it was worth it!

Congrats I remember it like it was yesterday. All the cockroaches attacking our cabin by the beach, Io burning himself at night show, and mom not being allowed into the temple. Those are good memories!!!! HA HA HA!!!

Happy Anniversary! I remember that day!! Anyway, your dancing is so much better than the hula I attempted to do at mines!

Kimberly said...

Good times! Sione and I missed your sealimg b/c we were decorating the ballroom! LOL. Best chocolate cake EVER!

Kimberly said...

Um, I was eating a donut while typing my comment--that's why it says "sealimg" instead of "sealing." HA!

I think your wedding was the first time you and Mel met too! Or did you guys actually meet? She had just come to stay with me that day...

Hunt Family said...

Happy Anniversary!! What a great day for you guys. I know I have told you this before, but one of the first sacrament meetings I remember going to in Kingsland was your mom talking and her bringing up the fact that she had an expired temple recomend on the day of your wedding. See I hadn't even met you yet but I was already hearing stories about your most special day. We were just destined to be friends.

This is Io. I just want to let my wife know that I thank her for all her love and support. I couldn't accomplish my goal in life without her undying love and support. I will always love her. I am glad I'm with her because without her I will be nothing. She's the most wonderful and amazing person that Heavenly Father send to me. She will always be mine.... By the way, she's an amazing woman and a mother... I learned a lot from her. I don't think I can do her job....Thank you honey for always being there for me...Happy Anniversary to us! hahaha

I love you the most,

Your hubby for eternity

Congratulations on the five years! You couldn't have been as bad as me at my Samoan Dance. I am one of the few colored people in the world who have no rhythm. What I really wanted to do was break out and start head banging...that I can do. :)

da benally's said...

Wow 5 years already. Congrats and happy 5th anniversary. It's seems like last year for some reason. I remember all the fun stuff and the freak out stuff too. That really was fun day. Thanks for including me. And whatever about your dance. I thought by the way you were freaking out about it that you would be stiff or something. Girl, you looked like you knew exactly what you were doing. You were beautiful and the day was great.

Thank you for your prayers and conserns. We're doing okay. I never thought I would be able to cope with something like this but Heavenly Father does bless with you ways to do it, dispite yourself. Love you.
