10 years of Marriage...10 years of Stats

10 years of marriage as of today. 10 years. Crazy. I do have to say that I am pretty lucky to have married the funniest, sexiest, coolest woman around town. In the past 10 years, A LOT has happened:

The 3 most important things over the past 10 years are:
  • We have stayed married for 10 years. Who woulda thunk it?
  • 2 boys--crazy, funny, lovable little boys.
Other Sam and Brodi randomness
Many, many moves in 5 cities, 4 states and 8 apartments and 2 homes (in order, from start to finish):
  • Salt Lake City (1 apartment, 6 months total)
  • Blackfoot (1 apartment, 10 months total)
  • Salt Lake City (2 apartments, 1.5 years total)
  • London, England (1 apartment, 1 year total)
  • Arlington, Virginia (1 apartment, 1 year total)
  • Denver, Colorado (1 apartment, 3 months total)
  • Arlington, Virginia (2 apartments, 1.5 years)
  • Salt Lake City (2 homes, 3 years)
Almost too many jobs to count
Brodi:
  • Associate Producer at KTVX television
  • Anchor/Weather Bunny/Reporter at NBC affiliate in Idaho
  • Morning News Producer at KTVX television in SLC (youngest in the state, I can brag for my wife, can't I)
  • Waitress at the Spaghetti Factory (I got free drinks out of this when Brodi served my table!)
  • Marketing Guru for IHC
  • Grant Writer for an NGO in Washington, DC
  • Realtor in SLC (15 deals done in two years for her, pretty impressive)
  • Book Writer (1 book finished, 1 in progress)
Sam:
  • Sports Radio producer at KALL-910 (great at taking calls and calling people)
  • Project Manager for the Department of Energy in Washington DC
  • Strategic Planning for the National Renewable Energy Lab in Denver
  • Operations for Sweetwater International
Vacations and Locations we have visited together
  • Too many states to count (Hawaii, Florida, NY, Texas, Montana, California among them)
  • England
  • Ireland
  • Scotland
  • the Netherlands
  • Denmark
  • Sweden
  • Belgium
  • Italy
  • Spain (mainland and the Canary Islands)
  • Germany
  • Switzerland
  • Canada
  • France
Other random facts of what we have done over the past 10 years (all estimates)
  • Eaten 1,875 brown sugar poptarts
  • Over 9,566 Diet Cokes consumed
  • Over 240,890 miles driven together
  • Over 493 movies watched together
  • Over 8,770 diapers changed
  • Eaten at the Dodo, the Pub, Himalayan Kitchen, the Melting Pot over 436 times
  • Sam has broken his promise of 'I will eat better from now on' 239 times.
  • Over 816 Utah Jazz games have been viewed on the television or in person
  • Over 49,556 laughs we have had together
  • Over 13 pull ups done for Sam in 10 years (not bad, that comes out to 1.3 pull ups a year)
  • Over 698 apologies from Sam for doing something really dumb
  • Over 698 times that Brodi has forgiven Sam
I love you Bro. Happy 10 years and may the next 10 years be even better (like that would even be possible!)

Congrats!! Ten years, that is fantastic. I had no idea Brodi has written a book, I am totally curious about it now.
