2 YR Anniversary!

Russ and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary!
We had so much going on with trying to wrap up our yard before the snow started coming.
Russ has been working his little toosh off in our yard! He put in sprinklers, installed a fence, and just recently laid sod. Ive been really proud of him and all his hard work.
Our anniversary actually fell on a Sunday, so we went out to dinner the Saturday  before.
Russ took me to my very favorite restaurant in SLC- The Melting Pot.
We dropped little stuff off at my parents house so we could enjoy a dinner to ourselves.
If had a pocket full of money, I would more than likely eat at the Melting Pot weekly.
I LOVE it.
They had a nice Happy Anniversary card waiting on our table when we got there, and our waitress wished us a happy anniversary as soon as she greeted us. I love good customer service.
We had the 4 course meal so its safe to say we were stuffed. Russ even said he was "physically hurting". Worth it.
The Bananas Foster fondue is maybe my favorite thing in the world to eat.
Its so fun to think back on our special day.
I wouldn't have changed a thing about it.
I still just remember arriving at the temple and walking in to see a nervous little Russ.
And then driving over to our luncheon all excited that we were officially hubby and wife.
And leaving our reception saying how we easily just had the time of our lives.
I know it doesn't look like it was a cold November day, but it WAS.

Since we love to travel we went all out for our one year anniversary!
We spent a week in the Dominican Republic..

Where I fell even more in love with him as I was napping on a towel on the beach and he said, "Chels? Do I have anything in my teeth?"
Who else would find sea shells on the beach and think of something so funny?
I love him, and I love that he still to this day makes me laugh all.the.time!
Then we hopped over to the Bahamas for another week!

(side note- I was pregnant here and didn't even know it!)
So funny how different one year can make.
This year on our anniversary Russ asked me what I wanted to do. I told him I wanted to stay in my pjs all day and cuddle with my family.
And that's exactly what we did.
And the most amazing part, I was way more satisfied sitting on a couch with my loves than out on a beautiful beach soaking up the sun.
I am a truly lucky gal.

  1. Happy Anniversary to you both! Amazing how kids can change everything but definitely for the better! Your little one is so adorable. Good luck with everything now that you're back to work. I know all too well how hard it is to leave them but sounds like she's in great hands!
