Last week was an eventful week. We celebrated our 1st anniversary on Monday, the 19th. On Sunday, Matt asked me if I wanted my present today or tomorrow on our anniversary. I told him of course I would wait until the day of. He was really anxious to give it to me. Later that night, he brought out a wrapped present and I unwrapped it and really, had no idea what it was by looking at the side of the box. I saw the front and saw that it was a MacBook. I couldn't believe it! I was so thrilled. My old Sony Vaio needs to be tossed and I never pull it out anymore unless I HAVE to get something off of it. We hooked up our internet to be wireless and now we both have independence! Pretty exciting.
The past year has flown by. We can hardly believe it's been a year. I am truly grateful to have Matt in my life. He does an excellent job taking care of me and often wonders how I ever survived on my own. I assure him that I spent 10 years on my own and made it just fine. It has been a wonderful year and we have kept busy and things are just getting busier as Matt started his Bar course last week and now is at class from 9-12 or 1 and then at work (at the firm or washing windows) and studying at night. I was just sustained as YW President and so we may never see each other again between our schedules. I guess that's life. I've been told it only gets busier when you add the kids into the picture etc. etc. (No, I'm not pregnant!).
Friday, was my 29th birthday. We went to Vegas after Matt's class. It is just our luck to go on a weekend when it was raining and chilly in Vegas (I'm told it rarely rains there). We still managed to have a good time. Sally and Mike Hess (my parents' neighbors and good friends in Farmington) stayed with us at my parents' home and we had a great time with them eating out and going to Mama Mia and playing two rounds of Settlers. We spent time with my brother, Scott, his wife, Melissa and their family playing Rock Band, eating out, and celebrating my birthday with a yummy dinner and ice cream cake. I don't remember the last time I had a cake all lit up for my birthday and it was really scary seeing all of those candles lit up. Thanks Melissa for a wonderful meal (I actually ate steak and enjoyed it)!
