May 1, 2010, One Year Anniversary!!!

Wow I can't believe we have been married for a year already, time went by so fast and it still is going by so fast. We have had so many fun adventures and I just love every second with the Mr. I have had so much fun being a wife and I just love my husband more than anything!! I never knew that I could love someone so deeply, until I met Matt. And I seriously do love him more and more every day! I love that he is my husband for forever and I can't wait to spend forever with him! I have so much fun with him no matter what we are doing and he really is my best friend. It is so fun that we get to share everything and build memories together and be a family. I don't know what I would do without my husband, I have come to rely on him now for so much and he has helped to make me a better person. It's crazy how we have picked up different traits from each other, for example I have helped him to be more assertive and he is helping me to have more patience. I just love this boy and I am so happy and proud to be his wife. I love you babe!! Here is some flashback from our wedding :) FYI I still haven't finished our wedding book, ordered our nice pictures, or got our Cd's yet, but my goal is to get that done soon!

Ok wow lots of pictures, sry but I am obsessed with wedding pictures, I can't wait to post some of our professional ones they are much better, I just get so excited and happy looking at our pictures. I loved everything about our wedding day and I wish I could go back and re-live it again! Ok so for our anniversary we didn't have much planned. It was our first weekend at our new place and so we ran a lot of errands. We did some fun stuff and I had a lot of fun getting stuff for our new place. Of course the day didn't go without surprises because it wouldn't be Matt if he didn't have a surprise up his sleeve for me :)which I love. I had already told him though that I didn't want him to waste money on flowers, and I didn't really care to go to some fancy dinner, or a hotel, we decided to save that money for a fun trip over summer when life is less hectic. Plus we had just been with family for the last 2 weeks so I was a little tired of eating out every day. Ok anyways lets start with the morning. I had a fun surprise planned for Matt that he had no clue about. The week before my mom helped me pick up a BBQ for him and we stored it at my sister's apt. Then on Saturday morning Jordan and Quinn helped me get the BBQ to our new house. Matt has been dying to have a BBQ since we now have a backyard to keep it in so I knew he would be happy. I had it all set up in the backyard with grilling utensils and everything. I had to try and get him to go outside and when he did he loved it! Now he literally grills everything and it is so nice! I have myself a little chef!

While I had snuck out to get the BBQ he had a little surprise for me as well. This was sitting on the bed for me (which he had also made:).

He got me wedding bands for my ring, they are so pretty! (wow my fingers really aren't chubby like that haha)

He also had a surprise in the car for me, he got me some gardening gloves and a gift card to Lowe's and Home Depot so I could get stuff for my garden!

I had so much fun for our anniversary and I just loved being with my husband, I can't wait to spend many more years together with him. I can't wait for us to take our Disneyland and beach trip later this summer!

Winter finals, wedding, family, and moving!

Ok so it has been so long since I have posted anything, not like anyone reads it anyways but having a blog is my way of not having a journal so I have got to get updated. So much has happened since I last was on here and Matt and I have been so stinkin' busy! So I will start with the end of our Winter classes and with moving to our new house(see post below for a pic). Finals were very stressful but we managed to survive and we got awesome grades in all our classes. I was able to take another class with Matt which was awesome! I love being able to take a class together its so much more fun. We were able to move into the new house on April 29. I couldn't believe how much stuff we had crammed into our little apt. We had to get a uhaul to move everything. But we managed to get all moved out and said goodbye to our first place and hello to something much better! Thanks to everyone who helped us out with the moving, Blaine, Jordan, Quinn, and their friend (I cant remember his name)! We love the house, we have so much space and its just nice to have our own place that's not connected to a bunch of other apts. We are still getting settled in and organized. Since Spring semester started so soon after Winter we barely had a weekend off and during that time we were at my cousin's wedding. Ok so I'm going to try and remember some of the things we've done since my last post, this is gonna be a long one because there is just so much!
On one of those nice warm days we went on a bike ride and had a picnic at the park. We rode our bikes over to sensuous sandwich and then ate them at the park.

The next event after finals was my cousin Andrew's wedding to Kimmie. My family came down and it was fun to go, it was the first sealing that Matt and I were able to go to together besides our own, and it was really fun. They are such a cute and happy couple and I am so happy for them!
Here is us at their dinner the night before with my cousins Darren and Kimmy.

All the boys,Quinn, my little brother Blake, and my handsome hubby, we were waiting inside because it was windy, rainy, and freezing outside.

Me and my sisters Morgan and Brittany.

The happy couple! (even though they had the worst luck with weather they were still just so happy and excited)

All huddled under my umbrella.

Matt wearing Morgan's silly glasses.

I forgot my camera at the reception so I don't have any pics of it :(.
After bugging them to go to Texas Roadhouse all weekend we finally got to go there for dinner! I love that place.

And later we all went bowling (which I am so terrible at its embarrassing)

The pros! My parents are really good bowlers they kicked our butts!

After bowling we went to YoZone which use to be my fav yogurt place but now that they dont have their mango tart or coconut I refuse to go there Its very sad because that combo of flavors was amazing!!

Also while my parents were here we babysat the 2 dogs Missy and Roxy, they were a lot of fun and we liked taking them on morning walks, I can't wait til we can get a puppy!

Here is cute little Bella, the golden retriever puppy my parents bought in Utah, she is such a sweetie!

Also while my parents were in town my mom took me shopping at the Gateway for my Birthday and I got lots of awesome stuff, Thanks mom! After shopping my dad, Blake, Matt, and I went over to see the flowers at Temple Square. They were really pretty. While we were there some sister missionaries came up to talk to us and it was funny because one of them was from Japan which is where my dad went and the other one was from Arizona which is where Matt went I thought that was a fun coincidence haha.

It was definitely a fun and very busy week/weekend, but we had a lot of fun with my family and going to the wedding. Don't you worry there is still a lot more I have to write about but I have to break these posts up a little bit. Up next will be our 1 year Anniversary so that needs a post of its own :).
