Our One Year Wedding Anniversary

I know I'm a little late, I should've posted earlier but life has been a bit busy!! Which is always good. But Jared and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary last Sunday, the 15th but we waited until last Monday to do anything because of our trip.

Jared was an absolute sweetheart, I absolutely loved his gift!! I got flowers, a very pretty arrangement which according to him will only get bigger as the years go by!! YAY!! And a card. Now the one year is paper so, Jared got me a gift certificate to the scrapbook store YAY!! But there's a catch..we have to go together because we're going to make a scrap page of our anniversary how sweet!! I am so touched, at least he but some thought into it, It means so much!!

We went out for dinner, very good dinner. At a restaurant called Charlie Don't Surf, it's out in White Rock, which is maybe a half an hour drive from our place. All the restaurants are along a boardwalk that look out onto the water. Very pretty!! Had some drinks and good food!!

We haven't gone to the scrap store yet, he worked and was in a soccer tournament all weekend!! So it's our date night tonite. We're going for sushi and then we are going to go and see Jared's sister and her new fiance!! Should be fun!! Promise to post some scrappy pages soo, have been a bit of a scrap machine!! Hope you all had a good weekend!!

The Wedding and Houseboating

Jared and I both had such a good time up in Salmon Arm!! We totally needed it just being away and hanging out the two of us!! And the wedding so fun, very low key , we enjoyed ourselves.

The drive up on Friday was awful!! So long and so hot!! The air conditioner in the car was not working and if you opened the windows you got warm air!! It was a long five hour drive!! When we arrived in Salmon Arm, we still had to wait for everybody else that was on our boat so, we did some grocery shopping and got some refreshments at the liquor store. The weather was also acting so weird once we met up with some of the people on our houseboat. We had some light rain, which felt really good after all the heat and then some really strong warm winds..really weird!! We even saw a wind tunnel in the water, very cool!! We finally got the boat and got on and rode along the water to find a beach to "park" the boat. The breeze felt so cool and nice!! For those of you that don't know a houseboat is basically a house that floats. It has everything in it that a house has. A kitchen, living room, a bathroom, tons of bedrooms, an upper deck with a hot tub, a slide to slide into the lake, a bar, and one more uppper deck with a place to sit and look out!! Very cool!!

Friday night we went to bed early, somewhat 'cause the wedding was at 11am on Saturday!! Jared and I did not sleep at all, it was so HOT and we were just sweating, it was like a sauna!! Very gross!!

Saturday morning woke up and walked down to the beach for the wedding!! Jen looked so pretty in her white summer dress and Mike in his shory pants and nice shirt!! It was a quick and short ceremony!!

The aisle along rhe beach was lined up with shells and then at the top it had Mike and Jen's initials and a heart, it looked so nice!!

And a pic of jared and I..I tried to take as many of us together as I could, we barely have any pics of us together this past year!!

For the rest of the afternoon, we had free. The "reception" wasn't really until later!! So Jared and I and a couple of other guys went tubing!! Tons of fun!! We first tried the two of us, but it didn't really work!!

So, we had to go each on our own, and I was a little nervous...especially with all boys on the boat and driving the boat too!! But I was reassured, and it was tons of fun!! I may be hard to see, 'cause Jared forgot to zoom in, but that's me!!

For Jared's turn they really went wild with him, but he hung on!!

And a cute picture of Jared and I on the boat!!

Tons of fun!! I wish we could've gone again before we time I guess!!

Later that night we had the reception, very casual!! We basically hung out, sitting and drinking and chatting away!! we had tiki torches lined up along the beach, it was good!! And Jared and I celebrated a mini one anyway our 1year wedding anniversary..just lots of kissing and hugs :) Good times!!

We left Sunday!! But we were basically on the road the whole time and when we got home Jared and I went for dinner with his parents. They bought us dinner for our anniversary, it was good!! I got to hear a whole bunch of stories of Jared when he was little and playing soccer and all the politics that go along with it!! I never knew but, I will post another post of our anniversary!! Right now I need to go and organize my desk so I can hopefully do some scrapping!! An anniversary post to come..he loved the album by the way!!Later!!

Going to celebrate...

It's been so nice and hot the past couple of days!! Totally loving it!! So, Jared and I leave tomorrow for our friend's Mike and Jen's wedding. We're going up to Salmon Arm, which is about a five hour car!! And then we're going on a houseboat and spending the weekend on the houseboat. The wedding will be on a beach, which will be cool!! Looking forward to it!! Kind of wish that for our first wedding anniversary we'd be alone and maybe somewhere else. But I guess it'll have to do. We are going to celebrate on our own on Monday night or next weekend with a dinner!! But we will be taking a bottle of champagne up with us to celebrate with!!

Have been enjoying my little garden this summer!! I am so proud of it!! Love my sweet peas!! Totally takes me back to being a kid and having them in the garden at my parents house. And they smell so good!!

My little garden paradise!! I will share more pics of my little garden soon!!

Because the first wedding anniversary is paper. I decided to make Jared a little mini album of reasons why I am loving being married to him and why I love him so much!! I thought I would share the cover, a sneak peek!! I just finished it, have been working away at it for the past two days!! Love how it turned out!!

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! I will be back with lots of pictures!! And happy one year to my you!!

Still cannot believe it's been a year!! Ciao!!

An Update...

So, the internet is back. It works kind of. Sometimes we have an internet connection and sometimes we don't/ Funny. But the Shaw guy is coming tomorrow to look at it anyways. Might as well. So, I have to wait at home from 12pm to 5pm 'cause that's the time he will be around. Hopefully he comes earlier rather than later.

I am officially on summer break from school. I have almost two months off. Starting my second week of holidays this week. Still doing some tutoring at least it is a little bit of $$$ coming in. Trying so hard not to spend too much money, just being the things we need. Especially since it is only Jared who is bringing in the moolah. I have also finally decided to become a Stampin'Up demonstrator. I have been thinking about it for awhile,Jared's really wanted me to do it too, love their products too. And it will be a little bit more $$$ coming in.

Haven't really scrapped!! Haven't felt like it..but I did get my June kit from two fab sites Story Of My Own and Lovebug last week so, that might inspire me a bit. And things in life have been busy and kind of going through things personally so, just haven't felt it. Plus the fact that it is so nice outside, you feel bad staying in. Might try tonite, we'll see!!

Have made myself a large to do list for the summer. Lots of things to do around the house, lots of cleaning and organizing!!

Lots of pictures now to 10 year high school reunion, tons of fun!! I was so nervous to go, but felt better after catching up and chatting away with some good friends, especially Angela and Kim!!

Down the long hall of McRoberts...I swear it was longer when I was there!!

Sitting in front of the old lockers. Used to have no problems getting up, my gosh was it hard. I was lucky enough to always have one of the long lockes, never had a short half one!! Me, with Kim and Angela!!

Hey!! Kim still fits in the locker...

My bff Angela teaches at our old high school, here she is in her class!!

Some fun pics of Angela and I in front of our Class of 1997 pics...

So, after the tour of the school later that night we had a dinner and drinks at the pub. Totally casual and fun!! But I only got one pic with Angela, me and Richelle!! Might have to go and steal some pics from Facebook!!

And that's all I have of the reunion!! But I do love this pic of Jared and I. This is at the Salmon Festival on Canada Day last Sunday!! We had such a good time!!

Can you believe that we will be celebrating our one year wedding anniversary in a week!! Cannot believe how fast the year has gone by!! Will be celebrating away!! We're going to a wedding, house boating, should be fun!! Will try to post again soon, before we go!! Have a fab week everyone!!
