Anniversary festivities

For our anniversary we both played hookie, I called off work and Sean skipped his classes for the day.  Sean surprised me with breakfast in bed, which is a great start to any day! We just hung out during the day, it was so nice to just lounge around together.  That night we went to a Broadway show in downtown Fort Worth, but Sean wanted to surprise me for dinner.  Of course with us, nothing goes according to plan. :)  On the drive down to Fort Worth it was hailing, so everyone was going really slow and some people were stopped underneath the freeway.  Shortly after the hail stopped we realized we had a flat tire, we quickly got off the next exit and I saw a Lexus dealership!  Whenever they are servicing our car they give us a loaner car, so I was hoping they could do the same for our tire.  They could obviously tell we were going somewhere because we were all dressed up, and we told them we were already in a hurry because of the weather.  They got us in and out with a new car in less than 15 minutes!  I LOVE LEXUS, we will be Lexus owners for life!!!  They totally saved our evening.  We were only a few minutes late for our dinner reservation, and were right on time for the show.  Seriously, I love you Lexus.  It doesn't matter what dealership we go to, we are always treated like royalty.  Here's some pictures of the fun day.
Breakfast in bed, love him.

 This is what I woke up to

 The surprise dinner was at Texas de Brazil, which is a brazilian-style steakhouse (just like Tucanos in Provo).  It was amazing!  He knows me too well.

Broadway at the Bass.

We saw the musical "Beauty and the Beast."  I love Beauty and the Beast, it was seriously so good!

Sean's excuse for not taking more pictures

It was such a fun day!  I know it's not Sean's favorite thing to get all dressed up and go out, but that's why it's called a gift I guess :)  He even matched my dress which he HATES.  He calls it "handing in his man card", haha.  It was a great night, and Sean did such a good job.  Happy Anniversary to us!

Happy 3 year Anniversary!

Yes, it's true...we've been married for three years!  I remember when we got married Sean's brother Nate and his wife Telisha had been married for three years and they had two kids, and I thought...jeesh...they've been married forever!  Haha (love you Nate and T :) and all your cute kids)  And when we were in our first BYU married/student ward people would ask us how long we had been married, and we would say a few months...and then we would ask them, and they would say they had been married three years I remember thinking...yikes they're really old!  Well, now it's us...we're old.  (Imagine what I will feel like it when we've been married 30 years?!)

Honestly, it's been the best three years of my life.  We've definitely had good times and bad times, and sometimes I want to light him on fire, :) but Sean is the best thing that's ever happened to me...and I can't imagine my life without him.  He truly is my better half...he's everything I'm not.  I know that he is everything my Dad ever wanted for his little girl, and more. 

Three down, eternity to go.  I love you Sean, Happy Anniversary.

Saturday, April 16, 2011 suck.

As if my Dad passing away wasn't enough, we just got robbed.  Yes, the same couple that was robbed and took everything Sean owned less than two months before we got married.  About two weeks ago, Sean got out of school early and met me for lunch.  He was gone FOR ONE HOUR, and this is what he came home to.

They used a crowbar to bust open our front door.  Apparently no one saw them doing this.  Then, Sean went into the family room and saw this-
...that's when it hit him.  We've been robbed!  FML.  They took the T.V., the Xbox, a bunch of Xbox games, and the controllers.
Luckily I don't have very much expensive jewelery, because if I did it would be gone.  The took a pearl necklace my Mom gave me, a Coach wristlet I got for a birthday present-which of course was full of jewelery (all costume jewelery, but still there were like 7 pairs of earrings and a necklace).  Huge bummer.  :(  After seeing my jewelery box open, Sean instantly thought about my diamond ring.  I don't wear it to work because I wear gloves all day (the rings rips my gloves and gets really gross from everything).  I just wear my wedding band to work.
Luckily, I keep it in a separate dish next to the sink where I wash my face, so they apparently missed it.  Thank goodness!  It's definitely the most expensive item we own, and we would have been totally screwed if they had taken it. 

This is what the office looked like when Sean went in.  They didn't take the computer (weird?), but they took an ipod out of the drawer, a USB cord to our iphones (wtf?), and who really knows what else.  We're still finding things each day that are missing.  I'll ask Sean, "hey have you seen *****, and then I'll realize-crap...they took that too!"  Some of the things missing are kind of random, like our green throw blanket we had on the couch--gone.  We think maybe they used it to wrap the T.V. in?  Who knows, but basically it sucks. 

I know this sounds stupid, but the thing I'm probably most upset about that was stolen was my ihome.  My brothers (bless their hearts) never really get me birthday/any presents.  Maybe it's a guy thing, who knows?  But, for my wedding/birthday present they all chipped in and bought my an ihome, which they knew I had been wanting forever.  Of course I can get a new one, but it was kinda special to me, I's weird.  Obviously, Sean's most upset about the T.V.  We have a T.V. in our bedroom.  It's a tube television set that I got for my 15th birthday, haha!  I wonder why they didn't want to take that?  It reminds me of the commercial where a family comes home from vacation and everything is taken but their old school computer.  They then decide...maybe it's time for a new computer...haha.  But, at this point it's better than nothing.  Luckily we have renter's insurance, so I realize it could be a lot worse.  We called them the day we got robbed, and of course they're dragging their feet and taking forever to get things replaced.  2011 has just started, and I already can't wait for it to be over.  Ugh, FML.  I've seen this quote before, and honestly this is exactly how I feel.
