Time flies when you're having fun!

One Year Later: We're still awesome!  Matt & I celebrated our one-year anniversary last week. We went out to dinner and exchanged gifts. He got several "paper"-themed gifts (tickets to the Shrek musical, cigars, a reprint of the Omaha World-Herald front page from our wedding day, etc.), since paper is the traditional one-year gift, and I got a Calvin Johnson Detroit Lions jersey - score!  I just really cannot believe it's already been a year. The memories of our wedding night are a blur but I do know the fun we had that day hasn't stopped for a second. In just the past year alone, we've really enjoyed ourselves. I don't know why people say the first year is the hardest. We reminisced at our anniversary dinner at our go-to special occasion joint, Bonefish Grill, and man, got tired just talking it all through!
Since last October, we...

  • Went to Negril, Jamaica on our Honeymoon
  • Enjoyed an annual trip to Unadilla - this year via party bus to the town's Groundhog Day celebration
  • (Matt) went on his usual March Madness / golfing  / boys trip to Phoenix
  • Took in the Power & Light district and a Kansas City Royals game this spring
  • Traveled to Brekenridge, CO with friends for a weekend of nature and laughs
  • (I) went to Milwaukee on a girls trip
  • Wore big hats, won money and drank mint juleps at the Kentucky Derby
  • Participated in a full-scale recreation of a Bert the Conquerer episode, Wife Carry Obstacle Course
  • (I) ran a 10k -- oh, and I won a gold medal at the Cornhusker State Games in softball!
  • Built a new deck
  • Played in approximately 19,000 games each (ok, maybe I'm exaggerating but not by much) between each of our volleyball, golf and baseball/softball leagues
  • Toured the Dallas Cowboys stadium (and saw Big Tex just weeks before he burnt down!)
  • Wished many of our friends and family the best as they tied the knot themselves
  • And tons of other stuff I'm sure, too...

So I wanted to include a small photo montage for your enjoyment. And this comes on the heels of our next adventure--a MN road trip to see a NFL game and shop at IKEA - woo! Cheers to us, to many more years of fun to come, and to all of who have been part of that fun along the way, this year and always!
