Twenty - One

We put on a little couples game night party in Celebration - It was an absolute blast! 
I had fun going all out with the little cupcake toppers and all
That Topper says "Happy Birthday"

Taylor took my out for dinner at the "Snake Bite" in the city
He then gave me this after we ordered!

I love a good excuse to get dressed up, not to mention how in love I am with my new watch!

Picnic in the Park

Ahhhh something about being back to this part of the country soothes my soul. I feel so much more at home - I know my way about town and my husband doesn't have to go work long hard days in the heat anymore. It's chilly in the morning. And we live right next to this lovely park!

I packed a picnic, quilt and the football for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Taylor took a little nap on my lap after eating and tossing around the football. It was an amazing simple evening together! We are both so happy to be back and slowly settling into our apartment that we have fallen head over heels for!

How we Celebrated our Anniversary:

The best day ever, we rode the gondola up to Sulphur Mountain which has one of the most spectacular views I have seen. It was so different then our usually vacations and so wonderful to relax and soak in the amazing sites.

I think we both fell in love with Canada a little more this trip :)

We also went to Lake Louise and had breakfast and walked about the lake which was breath taking and freezing, we were not that prepared for how cold it would be in the mountains.

Dad and Taylor golfing together - they get along great which is wonderful since Dad hated him at first haha

 Then once we got to breakfast Taylor took me out on a little camping date were we cuddled and played cards in the same spot we had our first kiss exactly three years ago! It was perfect and romantic, and I love playing cards.

He also surprised me with an iPod - I am actually getting the new one once it comes out! Super pumped I have been wanting this for my running for some time now it was the perfect gift I had no clue it was coming.
I got Taylor a picture book of our Mexico trips and some new clothes as well.

Prenatal Bucket List: Round Two

I know I have been focusing a lot of the loss Taylor and I experienced this year. It is hard to move away from when it was such a big part of my life and what was going on with me. But there are so many thing that I can do and enjoy until the next pregnancy. That is going to be my new focus. Many of you may remember my first pre-natal bucket list which I finished everything on I might add!

1. Lose 25 lbs - only 5 more to go
2. Run another 5k and beat my last record
3. Invest some time into finding a job and my new fitness blog

5. Completely re-orginize and decorate our apartment in Idaho
6. Pamper myself and buy new jeans for the new me
7. Graduate from NASM
8. Specialize in pre and post natal fitness
9. Hot tubbing and jump on a trampoline
10. Enjoy my body!

Two Wonderful Years

Two Wonderful Years
It is interesting to look back and remember how everyone thought we were slightly insane for getting married so young, and "so fast"! But ever since that day I have never had a doubt in my mind that Taylor and I were the best thing for each other. We have grown so much closer and grown up a little together as well.

Honey thank you for always trying to understand me and standing by my side no matter how emotional and girly I get on you! We are finally staying in one place for a year and I am so excited to experience some time together before the next wave of crazy hits our life {hopefully in baby form I might add!}

My Handsome Groom

My favourite picture from the whole day. He still does this exact same thing when he doesn't want to let me go
