It has been over a month since I’ve posted so I thought I had better do a little Steenbock Recap. Here goes…

Shane and I celebrated 5 years (yes, 5!) of wedded bliss on September 6. We went to Monti’s, where he took me on our first date. This time around, however, I splurged and ordered the prime rib rather than the pork chops. We spent the evening reminiscing about our first date and our reactions to each other. I knew that he was the one. So much so in fact that I called home from the restroom and told my stepmom that I was going to marry Shane. On the other hand, Shane told his friend back home that he thought it went well but he wasn’t completely sure since I was so quiet. Silly guy… We then fastforwarded a bit (not so much, only 10 months) to our wedding weekend at LakeTahoe. After our clifftop ceremony overlooking Emerald Bay we had a quiet brunch at Caesars. I remember much silence and looking at my wedding ring trying to figure out why I felt the same as the day before. Aren’t you supposed to feel married and like a wife after you tie the knot? Our wedding dinner wasn’t much different…We ate late in the lounge at Applebee’s (quite fancy I know) and you know who watched football (pretty sure the Sooners were playing) on TV. I do remember thinking that I still didn’t feel any different…Even today I still catch myself thinking “Wow…I’m someone’s wife!” …I suppose it’s a good thing that the wonder is still there.
