Happy Anniversary: Five Years and Counting!

Archie and I had a wonderful anniversary this weekend, considering my large condition and the horrible snow storm we received here in lovely Utah! The first snow was about two months ago and then it warmed up and of course the weekend of our anniversary it snows!! Ain't that life for ya! We decided to keep it close to home since I was not in the mood for traveling too far. We headed up to Salt Lake and stayed at the Shilo Inn in downtown. Archie wanted to stay there since they have an elevator that looks outside. We tried it once and never again! It was really old and creaky and I have fear of heights anyway, so I really thought we were going to plunge to our deaths!

Saturday we headed over to the Leonardo Museum for the Body Worlds exhibit. It was amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone who has access to this exhibit. They use actual donated bodies that are plastinated!! Kind of creepy, but very informative. It's a bit hard to stand for long periods of time, but they had plenty of benches to help me recuperate! OK, it's not very romantic, but it was fun and we had lots of quality time together!!!!

Sunday my sister invited us to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert!! That was amazing!!! We got to sit in on the "Music and the Spoken Word" and then the Christmas concert afterwards. President Monson and President Uchtdorf were also there in attendance and the feeling was so special and amazing! It was a great way to finish off our Anniversary weekend!

Sorry no pics from this year's outing due to no pics allowed at the museum and such. But I've added a few from previous years when we were able to get out a bit more!

This is from 2004, we went to Newport, OR and visited the Undersea Gardens and Ripley's Believe it or Not and Wax museums!

Us being goofy on Temple Square last year!

A beautiful pic of the Salt Lake City temple 2007.

2006 we were kind of in between Utah and Oregon so it was a pretty quick trip in Sandy. 2005 we went to Seattle and stayed in a nice hotel and ate at the top of the Space Needle!! That one was really fun too!


  1. Happy Anniversary! It seems like just yesterday I was at your actually wedding!

  2. Congrats on the 5 yrs!! I'm glad you got to do something fun even though it was blizzarding outside! You have great teeth by the way. Love the past anniversary picts!

  3. Happy, Happy Anniversary!!! I wanted to go to that Body exhibit when it was here, but we are slackers and don't ever leave the house. Sounds like you made the most out of your weekend anyway. And you & my sister were in the same place at the same time!!! She went to the Choir thing too.


It really makes my day when comments are left since I know who is stopping by and checking in and I feel so loved and you will be my best friend for life!
