Happy Valen-birth-sary!!!

February has been a month of celebration.

We celebrated our anniversary on Superbowl Sunday by having a weekend date night at PF Chang's on Friday and Macaroni Grill on Saturday....my husband knows me and knows that I LOVE food!
We also went to Hoover Dam, which he thought was THE coolest! We even threw pennies off the dam for good luck. AND Sunday we, of course, went to a Super Bowl party at a friend's here in Vegas...it was quite the weekend and I loved every minute of it!
(Thanks Mom and Dad for all the gift cards- this weekend could not have happened to the extent it did without you!)

We also were lucky enough to have family visit. Nate, Kayla, baby Lexi and Mom and Dad came down for a weekend. It was so much fun to see them!

Then, we celebrated Valentine's by what else..getting food! This time at Carrabba's Italian grill.

And for the big finale, we went to Utah for President's day weekend to help my mom celebrate turning the big 5-0! And she doesn't look a day over 29 ;) We had a fabulous weekend which included seeing my mom's side of the family and the Parade of Homes in St. George ( loved it! and I may or may not have found my dream house..), eating the most delicious Thai food (I do NOT wonder where I get my love of food) and went up north to see Grandma Raelene and Bill and celebrate Mom's REAL birthday at home with 200+ balloons craftily fashioned into an arch by Christy Marie. Ry also got to spend some real quality time with the second love of his life...his truck, which is primed and ready for paint!

Thanks for the good times Utah!

See you in March for Spring Break! :)

2 years later...

We celebrated 2 years together as of SuperBowl Sunday!

I can't believe how life has changed in 2 short years- some things we've done:
  • received our bachelor's degrees from Utah State...hey aggies all the way!
  • I got my first full-time job, he kept working 2-3 jobs at a time while in school
  • studied our brains out and took that stupid LSAT 3 times
  • got accepted to law school at the Boyd School of Law, Las Vegas
  • moved for the 3rd time since we were married to Las Vegas, NV...hopefully to stay awhile
  • sent 2 brothers on missions- one in Korea, one in Preu
  • welcomed one new niece to the family..with another niece and nephew on the way!
  • survived our first semester of law school with pretty impressive grades..if I do say so myself
  • went on unforgettable trips to Hawaii, Lake Powell, and cruisin' Mexico
  • LOVED being together and looking forward to all that life may bring us
We have been so blessed- we love being in law school together and I would NOT be here without my man! He is the best husband a girl could ask for! He cleans, cooks and worries about me constantly, he is considerate and patient, understanding and loving- he tries to make me happy EVERY day. And it works. I love him more every single second.
Yep, I think I'll keep him.

Happy Anniversary Honey, I love you.
