Anniversary Gifts

So, it was our 5th Anniversary! We felt like this was a milestone. We discussed that we would get nicer gifts this year than usual. I knew I wanted to get Matt a nice watch because I thought it would look so handsome with his suits. He told me he wanted to get me some jewelry too. However, he totally threw me for a loop. He surprised me Friday afternoon with this beautiful necklace.

Here it is up close. It has black and white diamonds set in white gold. MY OH MY! Well. Needless to say, I was very taken a back. I wore it out on our date and I loved it. However, when we got home, I took a peek at the receipt. It was way more than I thought should have been spent on me. So, I asked him to take it back. I did want some jewelry but maybe not something so expensive.

Here he is- so handsome! He is wearing the watch I got him.

Doesn't it look great on him?

So Matt wanted to get me what I wanted. What I really wanted was some nice sterling silvery jewelry. He got me the necklace that I am wearing in the picture when we got married and I love it! I didn't want to replace it. So, we went to the Brighton store and he got me the rings on my ring finger and the bracelet I am wearing and the earrings that you can't see in this picture.

Anyhoo, I just thought y'all would think we are funny with our gift giving. We really are. Matt hates surprises but I love them.

Can't wait to celebrate many more anniversaries!!


5th Anniversary!

Woooooo hooooo! 5th Anniversary! We started the day at with a 6 am IHOP run! It was delicious! It was Matt's idea the night before when we were going to bed. Our waitress took our picture and gave me free bananas on my harvest grain and nut pancakes! Yummy!

Sipping coffee. This is a development that happened during the last year. He loves coffee now. Drinks it with me all the time- which I love!

Here we are at Bonefish Grill enjoying a delicious meal. He chomped on a huge burger and I had a delicious Cobb salad with mango and avocado. MMMMMM.

And then we went to a movie! We saw the new X Men movie. For the record, the X Men movies are absolutely my favorite super hero movies. Just saying.

Matt, I can't imagine life with out you. You are an amazing leader for our family, a Godly man, a wonderful provider and you get more handsome every year! Thank you for being my husband!

I'm a blessed and happy gal,


PV Four Ball

The first weekend of June is now one of our favorite weekends of the year. I believe I blogged about it last year too. It's the PV Four Ball Tournament! It's a golf tournament at our country club that means 4 days of golf for Matt and our friend Jonathan and 3 nights of delicious meals, cute outfits, and watching golf for me and Rachel. Here we all are on the last night. Jonathon at the tee box.

Matt and Jonathon on the last day playing golf on Sunday. They got 2nd place in the consolation round of the first flight. Pretty good if I do say so!Me and my sweet friend Rachel just chillin in the gas golf cart. Have you ever ridden in one? It's the WORST sound. Golf carts are supposed to be quiet and these sound like "go" carts. HahaBlogger hates me. I thought I deleted this picture, so I uploaded it again. Then, it wasn't deleted. So now it's on here twice. Enjoy!

Rach and Jonathon watching the shoot out. Friday and Saturday night, they draw names for people to have the opportunity to shoot the last 3 holes that are in front of the club and most of the participants and their "ladies" watch the competitors. Pretty fun- especially when you have friends competing! We hope that one day Matt and Jonathon will have their names drawn to shoot.

These ducks were hanging out on the 18th green during the shoot out and I just thought it was so funny! They didn't care at all that dozens of people were around watching golf.

Goofy ducks!

Can't wait until next year, already!
