Holidays Anniversarys, Vacations and More...

I have wanted to blog for a while, but I just can't get a half and hour to sit down and actually write something.... so I'm relieved to get some time. These past 2 weeks have been CRAZY!!
As you all know... Joey and I had our 1st year anniversary on June 16!! Holy cow, I'm still shocked that a WHOLE year has gone by. We had a nice quiet night together with it being a Wednesday. We had decided since we were going to Vegas for our anniversary we were not going to get each other anything... well that didn't work :-) I got Joey a super nice watch that I love!! He was very surprised when I gave it to him and acted hurt that I had gotten him something and he had not given me anything because we had decided against it.
Later when we got home he told me to go in the bedroom and not come out until he said so. When I could come out of the room, he had put our song on and had some champagne in our wedding glasses with a little piece of cake on the table. It was very nice, and of course I bawled. Then he told me to close my eyes again...... and I had a bag in front of me when I opened them. He had gotten me a purse all by himself!! And.. its a very cute one too. He later admitted to me that he had gotten a little help from my sister, and together they worked it out. They are just so cute!!
I love him so much, I am thankful for him every day!
This past weekend, we went to Vegas for our anniversary. Just the two of us, we had a GREAT time! It was a quick weekend trip but we packed plenty into the weekend. We shopped and the outlet malls, Joey had to go to the Bass Pro Shop, we walked to strip and explored all the hotels. Saturday we went to Body Worlds at the Luxor... pretty cool... I dont think I will ever be able to eat pork again but thats okay.. blah. Saturday night we went and saw Zumanity, which is the sensual side of Cirque De Soleil..... all I have to say about that is WOW. It was pretty interesting I will say that. Good show though, I would like to say that if I ever got the chance to go again I would go.
Sunday, Father's Day, afternoon we got home and went straight to a BBQ with my family at my dad's house. For Fathers Day Brit and I got Dad a gift certificate to his FAVORITE place, Tepanyaki. He was very excited about it! I love my dad.
I was so happy to see my dad and Brit when they got home from Hawaii.... I missed them so much. I was surprised how much I actually missed them. I was thankful I could at least talk to them, their phones worked. Thursday night when they got home we went over there to see them before we left for Vegas and it was so great hearing about their trip and everything they got to do. They got Khona Coffee for Joey, and Joey had a heart attack he was so excited. Dad gave us $100 to spend in Vegas, he told us it was for our anniversary present from him. He is the best Dad in the world. I could not have asked for a better one!! He works hard to provide for his family and he does a great job at it!! I love you, Dad!
Joey and I both know that we want kids, but not for a while. But ever since Hayden was born I can't stop thinking of how good of a dad Joey will be. He always says, "I never had this so I want to make sure my kids have what I didn't" He always says he is going to give our kids the best life possible, and I know he will work his hardest to make that true.
I love you Joey!!
