365 Days

Today is Matt and my one year anniversary! All day I've been thinking about a year ago, all the preparations and joy of the day. Crazy to think that it was only a year ago when we got married. Here is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding. 

Once we both got home from work we went to one of our favorite restaurant. Such good food and an awesome atmosphere. A very nice time of relaxing and talking.  When I asked the waitress to take our picture for our anniversary I asked Matt if she thought it was of dating. :-) 

I am so thankful for Matthew. It's hard to put into words what I think of him and how I feel about it him. He truly is an amazing husband and such a blessing in my life. He's helped me learn so much about myself, love and my Savior through the love he shows me daily. 
I love you, Matthew. Happy anniversary!

I stole the title from Kierstyn who got it from Shannon. Good to keep things in the family, right?

Happy Father's Day!!!!

Just wanted all of the fathers in my life , Daddy, Ricky, Papa Jimmie, Papa Maye, to know that I'm thinking of each of you. Love you!

What a bad dog!

We've been to testing Tonks to see how she'll behave while we're gone. She had been doing amazing well! 
We left her out for about five hours one afternoon. We discovered that's too much free time for a little puppy. She chewed a whole in our bedroom wall! Yes, a whole. It's about the size of a golf ball and goes to a dark whole that's underneath our stairs. I couldn't believe it!
When we moved in we had scratched the dry wall. Tonks had never noticed it before. The other day she did notice and attacked it! Obviously, she's back in the crate again.

I'm a loser

Matt's Aunt Melinda and Uncle Mike got a pool earlier this summer. That's were we spend a good portion of our weekends. While we were there today Matt swam the length of the pool under water. I thought it couldn't be that hard so I gave it a try. I wanted to make sure I stayed under water so I was getting as close as I could to the bottom, of the sallow end. I ended up scraping my chin on the bottom! Now I have a nice red mark. It's kind of on the under side,  it's not too obvious (hopefully).  Thankfully, I'm in the drive thru at work. Maybe I won't have any customers asking questions about it. I felt like a dork though. :-)

Last night was Matt's last softball game. It was a really good game! They played run for run the whole game. At one point Matt was on second base going for third. He had to slide in to be safe and ended up taking off a layer or two of skin in the process. The umpire made him get a covering on it before he could play any more. Even though Matt gave up some skin, the lost by on run. Very disappointing.

This was taken before we cleaned it up. It still looks pretty bad today, mainly because it's still orange looking. I blame it on the clay.  

Beware of the birds

This weekend Matt and I spent a lot of time working on the house. Well, it wasn't really working, just getting some odds and ends done. We spent the most time weeding the flower bed out front. Not a bad job, except some birds made a nest on the porch. At first the momma bird kept flying by us; she finally left us alone. We ended up calling it quits because there were at least five birds dive bombing around us!
Today when Matt got home from work he saw that the eggs had hatched at there were at least 3 birdies! Of course, I wanted to see them. I ended up climbing on the porch (while the neighbors watched). Momma bird was not happy at all. I kid you not, the bird fly inches away from our heads! Pretty scary. Despite that, I was able to get a cute picture!
