Sunday morning Adam was SO stinkin' sweet to make me breakfast in bed :)
(but for the record...what actually happened was that I woke up with my hubby MIA, so I walked into the kitchen, I could hear he was up to something. I found him, oh so sweetly, making me breakfast. "You're supposed to still be asleep sweetheart," he says... "It's okay," I reply, "let's make it together!" "No, no no! You get back to bed, and I'll bring it into you." So, I float back to our bedroom with thoughts of how I am the luckiest girl in the world. I then proceed to fold laundry on the bed while listened to conference talks :] Soon after, we enjoy the yummy breakfast Adam prepared!...which included french toast with Nutella --> to...die...for...)
On Monday, I planned a few surprises for my hubby... :)
* Yea for bring married for 1 whole year!!! woohoo! *
We went out for sushi at Happy Sumo in Salt Lake's Gateway...we sat out side in the perfectly sunny weather and enjoyed our delicious sushi =)
* Chopstick-teeth is always a winner...Yeah for being dorks in a public setting!!! *
And guess who we saw while we were out to lunch?????...the one, the only...John Schmidt!! He was out to lunch with his wife =)
(here's a link to an awesome video of him playing his version of Taylor Swift's "Love Story" mixed with Cold Play's "Viva la Vida"...awesome)
* By the time i thought to use my paparazzi skills, he was walking away...but i got a picture of the back of his cute little red head! heehee *
Next on the mystery agenda was to head over to Liberty Park & ride the ferris wheel (yep, the one from the movie Charly...and I'll admit it's one of my favorite movies...so it was a pretty big deal to be riding it with my forever sweetheart)And for entertainment purposes...look for the difference in the next 2 picutres... ;)
* sigh...blinking pictures...gotta love 'em *
* The ferris wheel seat in front of us was #1!...again, yeah for 1 year!! *
After the perfect ferris wheel ride, we went on a little stroll around the park...holding hands, of course =)
While wandering Liberty Park, we happened upon a group of super nice hippies that were selling tie-die blankets, shirts, tanktops, & dresses...they had some pretty sweet jewelry & some hand-made sandals (i wanted a pair, but my not-so-dainty feetsies wouldn't fit)...
And being that it was Memorial Day, I found it quite fitting that Liberty Park has this monument...it says "For Those Who Served in the World Wars." We're grateful for those who've lost their lives fighting for our freedom. After the park, we were off to our surprise dinner appointment...which Adam figured out pretty quick...we had reservations at 7 but we had to leave at 6 to get there... ;) We were heading to Midway, which is where we stayed for our honeymoon last May, at the Homestead Resort :) One of the restaurants we ate at on our honeymoon was the Blue Boar Inn...European fine-dining, with such a unique atmostphere. It was so fun to be back there!
We decided our first course would be a delicious salad...and escargot!!!! * My first escargot experience...very unique, and surprisingly really delicious! *
The dinner was absolutely divine...and it's always better when you're sharing it with your other half :)
We had a wonderful time celebrating our first anniversary together!! Here's to many, many more! I love you Adam!!!!
PS - We really wanted to get away for a night in Park City...but instead, we decided to save that $$ to buy a picture of the Salt Lake Temple for our home :) We went by Deseret Book on our way to sushi and found this gorgeous piece...we'll keep shopping around 'til we find "the one"...can't wait to have it up in our front room! Does anyone have suggestions for places that sell church artwork for a good price??

After we enjoyed our dinners (none of us finished...yay for lunch tomorrow!), we headed for the shuffle board table. I always though that shuffle board was for sweet old men & old ladies...think again! It's honestly a ton of fun!! :) It's a long, narrow wooden table that has a thin layer of this sand-stuff sprinkled over it (to make it slippery). The point of the game is to push/place a weight (really heavy, thick pucks) as far down the table as possible, without it falling off. The closer it is to the end, the more points :) And you'd be surprised how slick the board is because of the sand stuff...mine usually flew off. haha Adam & I were on Team Blue and Luke & Jaycie were on Team Red... We had a great time!
* Adam doesn't get competetive at all... haHAHa! *
* Here I am!...watching my weight go...go...go off the edge ;) *
* Luke was awesome! Look at that focus... *
They ended up distroying us...haha! Jaycie's skills were just too hot to handle!
Thanks for the fun time Luke & Jaycie!!
We had such a great night! And they live right in Bountiful...so we're most definitely excited to get together again, soon :)
* our Anniversary...T-minus 3 days! *
...just to name a few :)
