I love all the 52 Reasons things I've seen around here, so for my 8 year ( Shocked ) anniversary I thought I'd make the boy one!  We're kinda broke so I thought I would repurpose things around the house.  We don't have cards in our house (they're the Devil's Bible!) so I used some out of date Craftster flyers as my base.  Most of one side was blank to affix addresses to when we were mailing so I used that portion as my canvas and just trimmed away the other side. I'm not gonna show all 52.. actually I think there are only about 30.. but anyway, here are the highlights.  We aren't a normal couple so I'm sorry if they seem strange but they're really meaningful to me! I'm sorry the pictures are so bad!


Here's the cover. oh.... crap! I spelled "reasons" wrong!  Embarrassed Ugh, maybe he won't notice? English isn't his first language.


You don't yell at my Mom anymore! - This is a big one for me!


You look HOT in Crocs - Seriously he does! There's something about those big plastic things on his feet. I love it!


U bite ur toenails too! - It's really hard to find someone who understands...


You're refusal to shower saves tons of money on the water bill! - Its already exorbitant. I can't imagine if he added to it. I'm so glad he doesn't!


You stopped stealing for your "habit". - I don't wanna get into it here but this is huge for me.


You make sure to fart quietly @ fancy restaurants - He refuses to hold them in but he is sooo good about being quiet! Such a gentleman.

Happy anniversary! I love that your man (I'm assuming that's him) is in some of the photos!

I'm sure he'll treasure the book forever. Nothing says love like a homemade gift from the heart.  Smiley

Wow, I feel like you wrote the book about my marriage!  And we even share the same feeling about Crocs.  There is just something about them, isn't there?  MmMmm... sexy Crocs.

I love that you recycled materials -- great touch.  Thanks for sharing!
