Hallowversary 15: This Time It’s Boring

Two years ago, for our 13th Halloween wedding anniversary, we went to Disney World on a super spontaneous, ultra last minute trip and rode the Haunted Mansion 13 times in one day.  Last year, for our 14th, we dressed up like Tyler Joseph, the lead singer of twenty one pilots, and bombed around the Magic Kingdom during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party.

This year we listed our condo for sale.  And it rained.  A lot.

Okay, wait, back to the condo part.  “But hey, wait,” you may be saying to yourself.  “Didn’t you just renovate your condo?  And wasn’t it kind of hell?”  And the answer would be yes to all of those queries – we did just finish it, and it was its own very special kind of hell, but it was time to move on.  Onwards and upwards and outwards!  In fact, here’s the tour video our agency shot; hope you like the place. 🙂

Anyhow, in light of that bit of major adulting (lord, how I HATE that term) we’re having a pretty low key anniversary – regrettably no Disneying this year. 😦  Instead we went to the lumber yard for some last minute “I’m selling my house” items and ate sausages and veggie dogs, standing up in the end-of-October drizzle, in the parking lot.  It actually wasn’t terrible – this guy certainly looks pleased with himself!

But because I can’t ever let the opportunity pass to look backwards in fondness at my life, I created this little video for our YouTube channel, Park or Perish!, about the year we rode the Mansion 13 times in one day.  Two years on, it remains pretty well the coolest thing we’ve ever done, and I wish with all my blackened heart and soul we were there today.  This fun little video will have to suffice for now.  Happy Halloween, friends, and happy 15th to us.

    • Hey, so guess what? We bought a house. In Kanata, the Katimavik area. Old Kanata, but not oldest Kanata (big priorities here, but it’s a 10 minute walk to Taco Bell!) It’s bonkers and stressful, but in a good way, I think. Thank you for your kind anniversary wishes, BTDubs – been an odd start to our 15th year!

  1. The video was so fun to watch and that trip sounds like a blast! Quite a life goal you smashed there too ;)) I hope you had a lovely anniversary this year even if it didn’t include an impromptu theme part trip … and wow it must have been quite a decision to sell your condo! With all of the trouble you went through, I can understand why you need to get away from it though XD
    I hope you find a perfect new place!

    • Thank you so much! And I’m so sorry I haven’t responded to your kind comment (thank you, we did have an okay, if weird, anniversary this year; it wasn’t dressing up like TOP (what is?) but it sufficed) but things got very busy last week – we bought a house! Like, an actual house with a backyard and all the responsibilities that come with it! It’s kind of a very big deal, and we’re excited, but wow, what a lot of work. Looking forward to sharing our new digs with you. 🙂
