the day after

The day after our anniversary was spent at the Marriot in Irvine. We thought it would be nice to stay in the city where we first lived as a married couple! It was very nice and much needed. Charlie and I realized that we haven't stayed in a hotel since our honeymoon! I guess that's pretty normal right? I don't know. That night we headed over to the Irvine Spectrum for some yummy Cheesecake Factory where Charlie ordered ribs again and I tried something new. We shared a slice of banana cream cheesecake which we ended up eating in the hotel room! Baby Charlie was an absolute dream for us. He smiled and cooed at everyone and was so pleasant to be around. It has been so nice in California and celebrating our anniversary here. Big thanks to our wonderful parents! Thanks Charlie for 2 great years and more to come!

this one's for you...

We were sealed for time and all eternity in the LA temple 2 years ago! I feel like I've grown so much in these last 2 years and I feel so blessed to have Charlie for a companion and husband. He's means everything to me. I met Charlie at a huge crossroad in my life as I prepared to serve the Lord in Vancouver, Canada in the summer of 2007. We quickly became great friends and confidants that summer and started dating just a month before I was to enter the MTC. I remember praying a lot and trusting the Lord with a path I knew He wanted me to follow. That path led to Charlie and marrying him. I'm so thankful for the wonderful promptings of the Spirit and for the Gospel. I'm especially thankful for this little baby the Lord has sent into our lives. Our marriage has grown and become stronger from having baby Charlie and will continue to do so over the years. I love my family so much!

I went to Bed Bath & Beyond today to get a wedding present for our friends Jeff & Samantha. I looked through their wedding registry(which was 12 pages long) and I decided to get them towels and washcloths. Mind you I haven't been into this store for a while and when I saw these towels from Amy Butler I about died!!! I wanted to buy them sooooo bad and knew if I did my husband would make me take them right back because we have TONS of towels!! I'll have to think of some good reason to get them... maybe for my birthday next month??!! haha

pizza pizza

My hubby loves pizza like any other man and would probably eat it every week if he could! So I found a recipe that looked pretty good from Paula Deen's website. She did not disappoint!
Here's the recipe, enjoy!

lunch with the family

Our friend Dawn joined us and it was so great to see her again.

My Mom is so good with Baby Char, he just loves her!

Of course we had to get some pictures with Grandpa Greg!

Here's my boy with his Auntie Cub(Katie)

For Easter weekend my parents came up to visit and to attend General Conference. We all headed to the Garden Restaurant after the Saturday morning session and took quite a few pictures as you can see! Our friend Dawn joined us and it was so nice to catch up with her. It's amazing how much we have all grown since Dawn and her husband moved to Utah a few years ago!
While the men went to the Priesthood session us girls had a night out! We started by going to the mall and picked up some cute clothes for the babies. My Mom spoiled us girls and got us some lovelies from Clinique for our Easter present! I realized that night that the last time I got makeup for myself was before Baby Charlie was born, how sad is that?!! We then headed to Cafe Rio and shared salads for a very late dinner! My parents had to leave first thing on Easter morning so we made a yummy breakfast and said our goodbyes. I love my family so much and can't wait to see them again!
