One Whole Year!

Ok, even though I have to replace one of Ryan's awesome blog posts, I must report that yesterday, the 9th, was our 1 year anniversary!! I cannot believe just how fast this year has gone by. It is crazy to me that everyone claims that the first year of marriage is the hardest because ours was so great! I guess our lives are totally smooth sailing from now on:)

Being married is definitely a new experience, but it has been one of the best years of my life. It is crazy just how much you can grow to love someone and become closer every single day just a little bit more. Ryan is so amazing and I could not have been blessed with anyone more perfect for me. He is truely my best friend and it has been such a fun year.

So Ryan, being the funnster that he is, planned a fun trip for our anniversary weekend. On Friday night, we first had planned on eating at this great little pizza place in Phoenix, but when we got there at 5:40 (it opened at 5) there was already a 3.5 hour wait! Yeah, really. So we waited for about an hour and a half and they told us we had 2 hours left. Seriously. That is how small and yummy this place is... We finally decided to just leave and go somewhere else... Lame!
Here is a pic of the outside:

So we ended up at Oregano's, which was closer to our Hotel anyways. Ryan started getting a little fired up after we had waited about 45 minutes there too... It was the night of waiting I guess. Ha ha we were both so starving and it was getting pretty late. We finally ate a huge yummy dinner and desert and headed backto our fun hotel and watched movies.

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch. It was so beautiful! It totally felt like we were gone on vacation somewhere else.

The next morning Ryan and I met my dad at a breakfast restaurant called Over Easy. We first saw it on The Food Network on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It looked so good so we decided to try it out. The food was seriously so delicious! The prices were also really good which makes it even better! We will definitely be going back. I think Ryan won with the yummiest choice of food (French toast with caramelized bananas, pecans, and real maple syrup)!

We then headed back to our hotel to swim and lay out for a few hours. It felt so great outside (maybe 105) so it wasn't totally miserable laying out. There were lots of fun pools and we met some friends there so it was fun.

After getting totally fried in the sun, we came back to the house and got ready to go to the movies. We went and saw 500 Days of Summer. It was pretty good I guess... There have not really been many movies out lately that I have been that excited to see. This adventure ended our mini anniversary vacation. We both had so much fun and it was great for it to just be the two of us! Thanks Ry dogg for such a fun weekend! I love you.

I just have to conclude with the card that ryan gave me on Sunday, our real anniversary day... He is such a dork, but anyone who knows him knows that this totally is him! I loved it.

Then the inside says "Love means never having to say, 'Excuse Me.'" Happy Anniversary! Ha ha of course! He did write a very nice letter to go with, but the card kills me because everyone knows I am totally not a fan of this stuff... (like the story he wrote about a few posts ago). Anyway, these are just some highlights from our great weekend!

Happy Anniversary!!!!

I totally know what you mean about the first year of marriage. Ours has been amazing! Who knew?

Ok, I have heard SO much about that pizza place with the super long wait. I dunno if I am willing to wait that long.

Love the stay-cation he planned! Darling!
