I know, I am a little late on this update. Please forgive me. Here’s my little recap of last weekend and this weekend (so far). Get ready for a picture overload….
For Valentines Day, Anthony and I both had school all day so we decided we would do something fun that night. Our friends Autumn & Brad Elmer called us up and asked if we wanted to do a Valentine’s double date to sushi and a movie. Apparently Anthony had something special planned but it wasn’t working out since we don’t have a super reliable source of transportation. So, we decided what the heck, we love the Elmer’s and it will be fun! It actually ended up being a lot of fun, even though the movie we saw really wasn’t a winner (we saw beautiful creatures…don’t see it). It was a perfect Valentine’s Day with my new husband; nothing too fancy or expensive 🙂 Oh, and he gave me the BEST gift first thing that morning….
This BEAUTY (sorry, it’s just a picture of the case, there IS a camera inside)
I reeeeeally wanted to take it on our little double date, but Anthony said no for fear that I would lose it 😦 So here are some sunset pictures I got with my Iphone. Still beautiful, just not as fun 😉
and here are the infamous Elmer’s while we wait for our (not so good) movie to start
For the record, I did fall asleep in the movie…..which is nothing new for me…but I justify it with the fact that the movie was boring and everyone agreed. ha!
After Valentine’s Day we got to celebrate our 6 month anniversary! We went to church, which was the best way to celebrate (because what’s better than getting your weekly spiritual uplift with the one you love?!) and then came home and just relaxed. I made homemade pizza (which was a fail because I messed up the bread. The first time I made it was 100x better) and we had brownies and ice cream for dessert. So good. It was perfect because the next day was a holiday so we didn’t have to worry about homework and could really just hang out together and enjoy our sabbath day! I wrote in my journal (rare occurrence, worse than my sporadic blogging) and got to write all about how grateful I am for the man who I can call my husband forever. I won’t get sappy on here. Promise. But I will tell everyone (to make you jealous) how seriously amazing Anthony is. He puts up with so much from me and his first response when something is wrong or I am struggling with something (or I’m just being dramatic)?
“How can I help you, sweetheart?”
Seriously?! How did I get so lucky. I’ve never been more in love with this man. Every day my heart grows a little more. Anyway, I said I wouldn’t get sappy. Let’s just say, I made the best decision of my life when I chose to marry this guy. He is a wonderful husband and I can’t help but think about what an amazing father he will be one day (one day far in the distance!) I have been so blessed. One of my favorite things to do is look through our wedding pictures and replay one of the most perfect, peaceful, and happiest days of my life. I pinch myself sometimes just to make sure it’s all real. In honor of 6 wonderful months, here are some of my most favorite wedding pictures!
Again, one of the best days of my life. So grateful I could share it with so many of you!!!
This week we have both been sick, Anthony with an ear infection and myself with some kind of nasty stomach virus. Not fun. We are both finally feeling better (I have been in bed for 4 days…) so we are going to get out of the house for a movie tonight. I have been dying to see Safe Haven so that’s what we will see. I will let you all know how it is! Hopefully better than the last movie we saw.
We love you all! Hope everyone is safe and staying healthy! Sorry for such a long post….
much love from Hawaii!
