Numero Ocho!!!!

This weekend we celebrated our 8th Anniversary!! We decided to spend a romantic getaway in Sedona to relax and celebrate!! We spent two nights in a really cool bed and breakfast called The Lodge at Sedona. It was nice to have no agenda and to enjoy the cooler weather. It was the first time either of us had visited Sedona, and we loved the beautiful red rocks! The highlight was a 90 minute couples massage we, it was sooooooooo nice!! We watched movies, ate tasty food, window-shopped all the cool cowboy shops, and really enjoyed ourselves! Wish it was our anniversary every weekend!!!!! Thanks honey for a fun weekend, and for 8 beautiful years of blissful marriage! I am the luckiest girl of all time!!!!!

Eating tasty cowboy burgers! Notice the sweet cow decorations!

Special request caramel apple!! White chocolate dipped and milk chocolate drizzled! Mmmmmmmm!!!!!

Awwww, the happy couple!!!

Love you honey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Sweet Summer!

Well, JM and I have been enjoying this hot Arizona summer so far! I sure apologize for the tardy post...escrow closing on our new house was delayed a couple of times, and getting moved in and settled has taken some time!!

Thank you to everyone who helped us move!!!!! You strong beasts know who you are!! XOXO We'll have a thank-you BBQ soon!!

So here are some pics of the new place, as promised; we just love everything about it and feel so blessed to be here!

Modern-ish looking front. (Notice tall garage, JM is stoked that we can pull our lifted truck into the garage! Sweet!)

View from entry at front door

Water fountain we sort of designed in the front yard. Very Zen of us!!

Our big living room. Plenty of room for friends and movie watchin...hooray guys, now you don't have to sit on the floor!!

My fancy pants kitchen...we were lucky to get all the upgrades already chosen by the builder since we bought the house as a spec. tough decisions, and the luck of the fancy things they chose for us! Do you like my wifey decorating?

We had fun with our landscaping. Since we were moving away from our pool, we wanted to put something in the back yard that would entice us to hang out back we put in a gas fire pit. So...get ready guys...we are going to be bond fire-ing it up!!

So those are some of the highlights of our new digs. We sure love it and are grateful to the Lord for leading us here. Thanks for your patience as I found time to do a new house post!! XOXO
