Happy Anniversary!

Last Sunday was our 1 year anniversary (YAY!) This weekend we went on a little "romantic getaway " to celebrate. Friday afternoon we did a live session at the Salt Lake temple. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The spirit was so strong and it strengthened both of our testimonies of the love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for us.
After the temple we had dinner at "The Roof" restaurant at the JSMB. We both give it an A++ the atmosphere was classy and elegant, the view spectacular and the food was the best we've ever had- so incredibly delicious! We're both trying to figure out when we can go back (it's pretty pricey so we have to wait for another super special occasion)
Nick surprised me by spending a little cash and getting a really nice hotel in downtown SL. At check-in we mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary and they upgraded us to a mini suite- SCORE! Here Nick's trying to sneak in a little NCAA, being the good wife that I am, I let him watch a little basketball :)
Saturday morning we drove up to Park City and visited the Olympic Park. It was a lot of fun, if you've never been there before we both highly recommend it.

Gotta love the Olympics, I wish I didn't have to wait till Summer 2012 for the next games. Afterwards we hit the outlets and scored on some sweet deals. The Columbia outlet was having their spring sale, we bought Nick a new winter jacket normally for $260 we paid $50! It's like taking candy from a baby (not that I endorse stealing but I DO endorse super awesome sales!).
After our full day in Park City we drove back to SL for the Jazz game.
Fortunately/unfortunately BYU made it past the first round in the NCAA tournament (which they haven't done in over a decade) and their game was at the same time as the Jazz game! Poor Nick was caught between a rock and a hard place. He kept texting his Dad and Google for BYU updates. Sad News BYU lost :( Good news the Jazz killed New Orleans! At least one of his teams won :)
I can't believe one year has already past! It has been an incredible time, I'm excited to see where the future takes us and what adventures lie ahead all with my best friend. I'm SO SUPERCALIFRAGILISTIC head over heels in love! Thanks Nick for a wonderful weekend and a wonderful life together!

what would YOU do?

Last night my sisters introduced us to this new show on MTV called the buried life. This documentary-ish show is about 4 guys trying to accomplish 100 things on their list of "things I want to do before I die" It's pretty cool and SUPER HILARIOUS! Some of the things on their list are: ask out the girl of your dreams, play ball with Obama, help deliver a baby.... As they cross off a item on their list they help other people (that they randomly meet on the street) cross something off their list. While I don't endorse watching MTV, it got me thinking about my own bucket list. Here are a few things that I have accomplished and some that still need to be crossed off:
Marry in the temple- check
Have a baby before I'm 30 (I still have 2 years)
Raise a righteous family
Graduate nursing school- check
Get a stamp in my passport, travel to Europe- check
Lay on the beach in Hawaii- check
Run and finish a race (not super ambitious just a 5K MAYBE a 10K)
Hike to the top of Timp
Be an extra in a movie
Learn to surf
It's kind of fun to think about what I've done and really motivating to think about what I still need to do. Now I'll ask:
