Here's to Ten Years Together

On August 22, we celebrated 10 years of marriage together.
On our actual anniversary, we ate at Outback and then drove around in my mom's fancy BMW convertible.
A few weeks later, for the real celebration, we went up to Park City. We had high hopes of riding Tour de Suds in Deer Valley all day and got hailed on instead. I mean, we really have bad luck. Every time we try to plan something extra special, there is a kink. I have to learn to roll with the punches...stupid punches.

Here we are, all happy before the rain and hail...Park City, here we come...
More bad luck...Is this the smallest couch you have ever seen? Is there any way we could have both fit on that couch comfortably? Maybe I could have perched myself on the back of the couch.
And look at this tiny tub! However, I did enjoy a nice bubble bath while Eric watched some football.
Oh and did I mention that we couldn't see the TV from the bed. The couch obviously wasn't going to work so we had to figure out another option. Luckily Eric thought to bring the laptop for movie watching. And guess what we watched? Pride and Prejudice! It was such a sweet gesture since I know he's not a big fan or really a fan at all of wordy, accent-y, slow chick flicks. Bonus: he even stayed awake.

So, a few more things on the upside...

We shopped all day at the outlets and Eric was a good sport. Towards the end, he decided to wait outside...
We saw a double rainbow (although you can only see one in the picture) and we could actually see the beginning/end of it! I have never seen the origination point of a rainbow.This was too funny...we were in a soap/lotion shop and we washed our hands using the whole 4 step process. Eric could not get over how soft his hands felt. "Wow...I mean, feel my hands, they are so soft!"
We had a delicious dinner at Prime Steakhouse on Main Street. I think it was the best steak I have ever had...perfectly flavored and cooked. And if you like red onion, I had a salad with red onion and juicy tomato slices with blue cheese smothered on top. Oh, it was delish. To top it off the grilled vegetables were succulent and melted in my mouth.

To finish off the weekend we ate lunch at a French Bistro and walked down Main Street.

What can I say about the one I love the most? I still get butterflies when I see him. I can't go a day without talking to him every few hours. His laugh is contagious. His smile, heartwarming. When it comes down to it, he is a softy.
He is the perfect dad for our boys. He loves to play with them and gives them the love they need.
I love riding with him. He pulls me to the top and scares me to death going down.

The bummer about getting photos of riding is that you don't usually get photos of actual riding. This is a technical stair climb that he missed this time, but its such a cute pic.
Eric has seen me in many circumstances...from my most vulnerable and terrifying moments to my most happy and delighted ones. The best part is that he is still by my side loving me through it all. And for that I am grateful. Here's to forever together. Love you babe.

Jaynann! I saw a link to your blog on my mom's and then I realized that I never wrote you back on FB! You look beautiful as always and your little guys are adorable! Ben and I celebrated ten years this year as well--congrats! That is so funny that you are related to Martha--I never got a chance to mention that to her, because we were in different casts. I'll have to remember next time I see her!
