Late Anniversary Celebration:)

This weekend we decided to celebrate our 2 year anniversary which was April 29th but we were in Portland with Ryan's family. We were going to go up to Logan and stay at a nice hotel but we decided we would rather get some nice treats for each other and go out to eat somewhere nice:) So Saturday morning we went to the mall and separated to go find gifts for each other. I already knew exactly what I was getting Ryan, but of course I didn't tell him that. He had no idea what to get me but he always gets me gifts that I love, so I wasn't too worried. I ended up getting him a set of golf clubs. He wants to start golfing more and we found this somewhat cheap set the day before that he wanted:) They didn't have that one in stock but they had the newer 2008 set which was only 30 bucks more. So I went with that one:) Someone offered to help me carry it to the car but I was pretty confident that I could do it on my own:) I had kind of forgotten that we parked way on the other side of the mall, so I carried that huge golf set all the way across the mall weaving through the crowd:) By the time I got to the car I was sweating and my arms were killing me. But I made it without Ryan seeing:) I was really excited to give him his gift so as soon as he was done getting my gifts we came home and exchanged gifts:) He got me some really pretty earrings, ring and 2 yummy burning oils from the body shop:) I hid his golf clubs in the office, made him close his eyes, and when he opened them he was sooo excited:) He ripped into the box and unwrapped and tested out each golf club:) Then he asked if we could go to the driving range, and of course I was up for it:) He loves his new golf clubs. We had a pretty off day though at the driving range, it was still a lot of fun! Later that afternoon we drove up to murray to eat at the Cheesecake Factory:) It was a hour long wait, but it was definitely worth it:) Thanks Eric and Hilary for the advice, the chicken was so good and the oreo and tres leches cheesecakes were yummy! We had a great Anniversary!!

We have clean dishes!

We finally got our new dishwasher! We're so excited because our other dishwasher was ancient, it left like a wierd sandy film on all our dishes, gross I know:( It's a maytag quiet series, it really is so quiet especially if you compare it to our old as crap nasty can't even call it dishwasher, dishwasher:) I took some pics of our new one:) I wish I would have taken pics of our old one but here it is.

Happy Mother's Day

This blog is dedicated to the best mother and friend in the world, Mimi:) I'm so grateful for her unconditional love, friendship, example, and all the advice that she's given me and still gives me! I have so many great memories of us together that I will cherish forever:) She's always been there for me through all my craziness, the good times and bad times. As most of you know these haven't been the best months in my life with trying to get pregnant. It's been really hard. I've called mimi up numerous times just bawling and by the end of our conversation I feel at ease and know that I can make it a few more months. Thanks Mimi for always knowing what to say and do to make me feel better:) I will never not need you Mimi. Everyone needs there mothers no matter how old you are:) I hope someday I will be able to be the mother that mine has always been. I love you so much Mimi you have blessed my life in so many uncountable ways! You're the best!! Happy Mother's Day!!

P.S. You deserve more than just a day:)

I really wanted to send you these but I knew you would understand that we are too poor at the moment;) Someday we will be able to send you 100 of these:) I love you!!

Our New Love

Okay I know we aren't suppose to have pets in our apartment but since a baby isn't working out at the moment Ryan knew I had to have something to fill the void. So we got a little cute cuddly kitten:) She is so adorable, we still need to name her:) We got her Thursday evening from his cousin that I work for. There cat had a litter of kittens so we went and picked the cutest one out. She did pretty good the first night, we made her a nice little bed beside our bed. She woke up at 4:30 and was ready to play. Around 5:30 she conked out again in our bed this time until I got up at 8:30. We pretty much have her litter box trained, although she had an accident on our sheets this morning, just pee. We gave her a bath today b/c she was so filthy from living in a garage for the past 6 weeks:) We plan on getting her declawed since she will be an inside cat. Here are some cute pics of our new addition:)

Congrats Ryan!!

I know I'm always a little behind on my blog:) Ryan and I have been really busy and stressed lately but it's easing up now. Ryan is now a BYU graduate! We are so excited:) I'm so proud of him for sticking to it and getting it done. He's the best and I love him so much!
