Our 5 Year Anniversary and My 24th Birthday

"Happy Birthday-versary" Jon says to me that morning.... Wow! It seems like it was only last year or something, that Jon and I were just settling into our house in Orem and trying to get used to each other and the roles of being husband and wife; time sure flies by! It's been 5 years since we were married and it has sure been an adventure!! I couldn't think of anyone I'd rather spend the rest of my life (and beyond!) with. Since moving away from our "home" in UT, we've become so much closer and such stronger friends to/for each other. I really think that the time away to focus on each other has been the best thing we've done so far in our marriage! We've done so many fun things and gone so many fun places; and all of it together :) He's my best friend. I love you babe.

Our anniversary also happens to be my birthday! (woohoo!) There are some out there who would say, "Why do that? It takes away from your special day!" I beg to differ. I love being able to spend "My special day" with my favorite person!!! It's always a total celebration for us both on Oct 20th!!! :)

This year, with Jon studying like crazy and me running around like crazy with Young Women's stuff, there wasn't really much time to celebrate on our actual anniversary so we just enjoyed a nice dinner out and some good quality time together. Jon took me to California Pizza Kitchen (my faaaaavorite!) and then we went back home and watched a movie together. I loved every minute of it! We did go up to San Jose the weekend after and do some shopping and stuff, but I honestly loved that little minute in the middle of the week that we got to take a break and just enjoy each other. : )


Him (he looks like such a soldier, right?!)

Did I mention we're goofballs???

Jon reminds me a  snake in this one! haha! Hissss!

 My sweetheart.
 Doing the "Uniclops" .... believe me, you don't wanna know how we discovered this one! hahaha! Waaay too much time on our hands.
