Anniversary

The Mr. and I celebrated our very first anniversary on the 7th

We had been talking for months about what we wanted to do, but we didn't have a lot of extra money and we didn't really like the idea of spending a big chunk of change on a fancy hotel to just sleep there for one night!

We looked and looked online but nothing caught my eye & the weather wasn't really on our side for traveling.

Last minute we just decided to get a hotel for two nights in Salt Lake.

Then we both got sick.

We contemplated about canceling our reservation but decided to go anyway.

We left Friday evening, made a few stops & ran some errands before arriving

Checked in, grabbed a little something to eat at a diner in the same parking lot as the hotel and then watched movies and stayed up late reminiscing about our time together.

Saturday morning, the day of our anniversary, I felt like death was about to knock on my door!

We ate breakfast at the hotel, took our sweet time getting ready, went to a movie & a light lunch, did a little shopping then headed back to the hotel where we watched more movies and cuddled in our giant bed :)
(oh, how I wish I could bring that bed home with me!)

We wanted to go somewhere a little fancy for dinner & wanted to go somewhere we have never been, but also wanted to get our money's worth.

We looked online and saw tons of great reviews for this Chinese restaurant.

COMPLETE FAIL!

it was horrible!

it wasn't very good and it was so spicy that we could not even eat it.
So we went and got ice cream to make up for it.

Went back to the hotel to just hangout but I fell right asleep!
Walking around all day while sick took every ounce of energy out of me.
I slept until 9:30 the next day!!
(That doesn't happen very often)

We took our time getting ready Sunday morning, made a few stops to see the grandparents on our way home and jumped right back into the real world.

It is so strange to me that we have already been married for a year.

It has gone by in a blink of an eye.

People keep telling us that we made it and that "the first year is the hardest"

I would have to disagree. It was a piece of cake! :)

Now to many more happy years with the man of my dreams!

Oh Brother

The husband and I haven't started our New Year very well.

We have both been sick and it's just getting worse.
Which means we haven't been as strict on our goals as we should be

We are supposed to leave for our anniversary get away tomorrow afternoon...

I hope we enjoy at least just a little bit of it. We might just be sleeping ourselves away at our hotel.
And yes, we will really be sleeping for you who have dirty minds.

We have both called into work multiple times this week.

I feel really bad because we are poor and we should be working but I feel like death!

Yesterday I was NOT in the mood to cook dinner so I told the Husband that we should go to this place called Pizza Pie Cafe with my two brothers, sis-in-law & nephew
(they had just gotten back into town the night before)
We were there for like 10 minutes when I hear this dry heaving sound
I look at everyone and say, "Is that guy throwing up?"
Then you see his son (13 or so I am guessing) trying to give him the Heimlich.. and his dad was a big guy so he wouldn't have been able to do anything
Our whole table stood up
(mind you, we were the FARTHEST away from them)
Then I yelled "Holy Sh*t! That guys is choking! Should we call 911?"
Sorry for the cursing... when I get really scared they just tend to slip out! :/ my bad!

then the guy is hitting the table and turns around and yells out "Help me!" in a raspy voice
My brother, Cameron, ran over there and started giving him the Heimlich
We aren't sure if the object popped out or if he swallowed it all the way but within a few minutes the guy was walking to the bathroom with drool all over his face and shirt
Came out, shook my brothers hand and said thank you.

It was scary!

I laid in bed forever trying to fall asleep but kept replaying it in my head.

I was actually quite pissed that NO ONE in the whole restaurant tried to help him.

There were two FULL tables next to him and his son and not one person stood up to help him but my brother ran across the restaurant to help him.

Thank goodness we decided to go.

I really hope we don't have to experience that again.
