4 Years!


Tomorrow is our 4 year wedding anniversary! I really do not know where the time has gone! We have had our share of ups and downs, and we are certainly not perfect; but we are perfect for each other. I love you, Shane!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our special day:

First kiss as husband and wife!

Lauren had Shane's ring in her hand and it was just a surreal moment standing there thinking about how I was moments away from marrying my best friend and I was taken aback.

My zipper clasp broke (what luck, right?!) but you could not even tell - it may have even added to the dress!

I cannot wait to celebrate many more anniversaries with Shane! I'm a little sad he isn't here to celebrate, but we can always have a belated anniversary dinner! I promise I will try and be better to update this blog more often!

You read it correctly - SHANE AND I PURCHASED A HOUSE! :) We are so excited to transition everything into the new home. When Shane came home from Iraq in August we decided to try and find a house. We both hate the house we lived in on post and thought that we should take advantage of the first time home buyers incentive. We found a brand new house that we fell in love with! It is smaller than the house on post, but I love this new house! It is all one level except for the bonus room upstairs. We closed on September 18th and are continuing to move stuff little by little. I haven't taken pictures just yet (I know, I know - bad me!) but will post them when I do. We picked out paint, and are hoping to paint sometime in the near future! Just wanted to share the exciting news :)

We switched!

Yep, we switched to cloth! I love it! I really do! I don't think Landon really cares, haha! His fluffy butt is too stinkin' cute! Yesterday was our first day, and we only had one leak during nap time, and we were leak free ALL night! YES!

& check out the blinds that Landon has destroyed. Yikes!

Last Day of Classes!

HORRAY! Today was the last day of classes! I am so glad this semester is over! I just have a couple finals to do and a paper or two and then I'm done for the spring! I am sleeping in tomorrow FOR SURE!

Zoo Trip

It was pretty lame. First off, I couldn't find the camera ANYWHERE! I have no idea where we misplaced it! Then it decided to drizzle/light rain so we thought it would be best to leave before it started to pour and we were stuck in the heart of the zoo and running back to the car. We did see the polar bears (Shane's favorite), sea lions, alligators and turtles. Landon really enjoyed watching the sea lions swim. He didn't really get the idea of them up above, so we went below and he could see them swim by the glass. He loved it! Squealing and moving his head to follow them as they swam by. I just stood there amazed at how excited he was! I think we may try to go next weekend though, we felt cheated we couldn't see more. I really wanted to see the pink flamingos (my favorite) and the Africa part of the zoo. We got Landon a cute t-shirt that says "Be Cool..Stay Cool at the NC Zoo" and it has a polar bear on it. Couldn't find the magnet that matches ours - we think that was in the Africa part of the zoo. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted and Landon enjoyed himself :D
