Lunches This Week

I took some time to make ahead some lunches for my husband and I.  It is so much easier to just have everything ready in the mornings before work.  I made a two different lunches for us, one is Anti pasta and the other the Tuna pasta salad.   We have put a sandwich with these or just some crackers.   These took no time at all to make.

Doesn’t this look good.

There are black olives, feta cheese, blue cheese, pepperoni, hard salami (cut up) and some cherry tomatoes.  I used Paul Newman’s Italian dressing on this as well.   He makes the best dressing.    With pasta salad it is a blank canvas that you can put what ever you like in it.

How I Meet My Husband

It all started back in the year of 1999 when I started working for the company I’m at now. I did not notice this but I had someone watching me. Once day I went outside for lunch time to enjoy the warm air, and noticed that he was staring at me. Well this went on for some months before he had the courage to speak to me. Soon after that we were taking lunches together, going on walks during our lunch time it was just great. We then starting dating and we did that for about two years.   We both had been in relationships prior that was abusive and horrible, so we wanted to take our time and just see where things would lead to.   We discovered that our past paths were very similar, and our prior marriages very much alike as well. We also wanted to be sure that we both had the same views on life and topics we considered to be important between us.   We wanted to be sure this time.

May of 2003 we decided to go and get married. We decided just to have a small wedding like a City Hall one, but then came up with to run off to Las Vegas and get hitched. We got married at the Little White Chapel. It was a white church with a white picket fence around it. It was perfect for us.

So let me back up and tell you what happened before we did tie the knot. We took in as much of the sites that we could. We walked up and down the stripe, seen some shows, gambled a little and of course ate some really good food. The day that we had decided upon to get married was 5/16 but I believe our nerves and prior marriages got the better of us and we didn’t do it. Well the next day came and we knew we wanted to do this but again afraid, so we just let the day take us were is wanted. We walked the stripe some looking to see shops that did do weddings and just check out some prices, as well as what they had to offer.   We went in and out of several shops before the very last which was going to be our last for that day. Well this last shop was it. The very nice lady behind the counter just started pulling out wedding books to look at and invitations and so on.   We told her what we really wanted and in less than 10 minutes this lady had us signing some papers and paying the bill. Both my husband and I to this day don’t know how that happened but she got us exactly what we wanted for a good price. She had everything set up for us so all we had to do was changed our clothes and wait for the limo to pick us up.   By 8pm that night we were married at the Little White Chapel.

It has been 13 years of marriage which has had its ups and downs, but I would not want any other man for my husband.
