It is crazy to believe, but Chris & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary on January 21, 2011! That sure makes you feel old & wrinkly! 🙂 haha! We had a great anniversary, went to Color Me Mine & made soup bowls and on our actual anniversary we went to the Provo Temple and did sealings. Marriage is not easy, but it is definitely the biggest blessing you can have in your life. Being married to your best friend is all anyone could ever ask for! I am one lucky girl. Chris is so sweet to me, and is very loving to our dogs, which just melts my heart! We have definitely been together through thick & thin, good times and bad, but we are always by each other’s side through it all.
Chris & I are always having a great time. Whether hanging out with pals, doing family stuff, or going on adventures with our dogs, we are always moving & shaking. Here are some photos from our recent experiences:
So, Chris & I have this really crazy thing about always winning things! Anytime we enter raffles or drawings, we WIN! Which is awesome, I am definitely not complaining! Our most recent wins were at the Realtorfest-Chris won a Bluray player, Olive Garden gift card, and Cinemark movie tickets. Then, at a party my orthodontist had at the Lindon City Aquatic Center, I won a shimmery pink Schwinn Beach Cruiser! I was soooo excited! We have wanted bikes forever, and that was exactly the bike I would have gotten! How crazy is that? So I have ridden it tons, and Chris got a mountain bike so we can cruise the streets of Provo together. 🙂 Yay!
And, in other awesome news, I found out that my braces are coming off October 5th! This is going to be amazing. It has been a long 18 months! 🙂
So, did you know there are llamas randomly in Lindon, near the city park? Well now you do! 🙂 Chris & I discovered this while we were at the park for an outdoor movie night to support “Home for a Hero,” which is a group thats building a home for a disabled vet. How fun! It is interesting to me how even when you have lived somewhere for a long time, there are always new things to discover about it!
Chris & I are lucky to have 2 of the cutest nieces ever! Jeff & Emily’s little girl, Katie, is 1 year old & really sweet. Jeran & Ashley’s tiny lady, Kaylee, is 4 months and just a doll! It is amazing to see how such tiny little people see the world & how just the simplest things bring them joy. We can definitely learn a lot from them in that way!
Alot of our summer this year has been filled up with farmer’s markets. We started Doggone Good Bakery, and we sell gourmet, organic dog treats! It is really fun, we both love dogs & making things. At some of the markets I also sell some “eye-spy” bags and jewelry. I have always loved creating things, and it is fun to see that other people like what I do. One of our favorite things about the markets is all the new friends we have made & all the interesting people you meet.
Chris & I have been really busy with our businesses and life in general! So thankfully, we were able to take a really fun weeklong vacation to California! Our dogs came along, of course, and we had a blast spending time together & exploring new things!
