Our 1 Year Anniversary...and more!

This blog is full of pictures of Matt and me throughout our entire relationship...from dating the first year of marriage. It was so fun to do...just reminiscing and enjoying our memories together. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Right before I sang at Nashville Nights at BYU-I...Matt had come to visit me for the weekend (to propose) and he got to hear me perform!

In Salt Lake visiting the different church sites

Right after Matt proposed...that's the same restaurant that Matt took me for our first date and the same table we sat in too!

Boating on Utah Lake

In the Sacred Grove...August 2007

We were in UT for a wedding and doing a little last minute wedding shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond...we were totally in public...don't get the wrong idea about us being on a bed together.

4th of July 2007

May first trip to OR to visit Matt's family.

Us after an FHE we had...

This is a picture of me and Matt before we started dating. I had brought him his favorite ice cream from Dairy Queen... a Peanut Buster Parfait.

Our first day as husband and wife (Below).
I'm so lucky to have been able to spend the last year married to the man of my dreams. He's everything I could ask for in a husband and I'm grateful to have him every day. He makes me laugh, he works so hard, he's so good at being sensitive to me (most of the time) especially with being pregnant, he tries so hard to do EVERYTHING that's the very detail and I admire that so much about him. He makes me want to be the best I can be. He makes me feel safe and secure. I still get excited when he comes home from work. He's a great snuggler...not to mention the best kisser on the planet and he happens to be my best friend. On top of it all...we're about to start our less than a week and I'm so grateful that he'll be the father of my children...those kids are going to have so much fun growing up with him as a dad!

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!
On May 9, 2009, Matt and I celebrated our year anniversary. Our Anniversary is actually on the 10th but because the 10th fell on a Sunday (and Mother's Day) we celebrated the day before. Because I'm so pregnant, there isn't a whole lot I can do...I just get too worn out. So we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and the beautiful state we live in and just do some sight seeing. It was a wonderful day spent with my very best friend in the entire world.

This is one of the lookouts we went you can see it was quite beautiful.

That's the Vista House

Me and my hub

He's handsome even when he's squinting! : )

And I'm just HUGE.

Can't visit Multnomah Falls without getting an ice cream cone.

My husband should pretty much be a model. ha ha

We went to Bellvue Dam and saw the salmon fish hatchery and these HUGE Sturgeons!

Kissy kissy fishy

Matt had so much fun feeding the salmon...he throw in the little pieces and they'd all dive for it...he was very amused. He's still a kid at heart.

We went to dinner at Claim Jumpers and both got fillet mignon for the special occasion...and it was soooo delicious! We ended the day off by going to the movies to see Wolverine...which Matt obviously picked but I really enjoyed. All in all...we had a wonderful anniversary celebration.

Matt making me breakfast on Sunday morning for Mother's Day. Matt HATES to it meant a lot for him to get up and make me breakfast...he was going to bring it to me in bed but I didn't know so I woke got out of bed before he we ate together...which is even better.

he used to last of the batter to make one ginormous pancake...
...And was quite impressed with himself (as was I) that he flipped it perfectly!
