Six Years of Wedded Bliss?!

Archie and I celebrated our sixth anniversary on Saturday! I can't believe it has been six years! Let's see what we have to show for ourselves....One baby, check! He's the sweetest boy ever and we love him! Deeper in debt, check :( I guess that comes from school, having a baby, and me not having a job yet. But are we happy? Yes! Life is a lot crazier, but we have fun and we love each other!

So what did we do? Nothing fancy...just headed up to Salt Lake City to spend one night at the Anniversary Inn (theme rooms). We chose the Mysteries of Egypt room. It looked a lot bigger on the website....oh well. We ate at the Roof Restaurant that sits atop the Joseph Smith Memorial Building with an awesome view of the city and the Temple. The food is sooooo good. I ate a lot shrimp and salmon and mahi mahi! Plus, the desserts were to die for. They had to roll us out of the building we were so stuffed. Then we headed to the Gateway mall to watch Blindside. That was an amazing film. Lots of tears in that one and Sandra Bullock was superb. And a little bit of book shopping to feed my habit and then we came back and watched another movie! Throw a little romance in between the lines and we had a wonderful night!!!

Though, the bathroom was a bit small!
Our shower head was a snake!

In the morning we headed up to Park City to do some more shopping for Archie. He's been completely out of pants for awhile. And Tommy Hilfiger seems to be the only place that has his size. Then we headed back home and picked my mom up and Little Boogster and headed to Olive Garden for dinner.

Nothing too fancy, but it was a lot of fun and hugs and kisses to my mom for babysitting one night for us!

What did Archie get me? Since six years involves iron and/or wood he got me some really nice chopsticks with an engraving: Love and Laughter through thick and thin. Another set of kitty chopsticks and a wishing pot. I write down my wishes and put them in the pot and they come true! I'll let you know how many do this next year!


  1. Happy #6 to you both! Looks like alot of fun, very cool rooms. Doesn't sound like it wasn't nothing that you did for your anniversary, I'd take a night away from baby, good food, cool room, going to the movies, and shopping for fun time! Our 10th is coming up, Jeremy put himself in charge, hmmmmm-not sure what to think about that though. Love ya guys!

  2. Congrats to you both! It doesn't matter what you do on your anniversary as long as you celebrate it. We're going to see Blindside with our family tomorrow night--will be sure to wear my new waterproof mascara. (It worked during the two Hallmark movies I watched last weekend.)
    Love the idea of the wishing pot!

  3. Congrats to 6 wonderful years,,sounds like you guys had a great the chopsticks..

  4. Oh, my gosh! That sounds sooo romantic. I love how Archie got you something that went along with the wood or iron theme. I never thought about even looking that up. What was it like leaving Gabe with your mom? Did you miss him? I always do horribly without my kids. I ALWAYS miss them and cry wishing I could check on them. :(


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!
