Eric and I were just hanging around the house the other day when I brought up the fact that I have never been able to do a pull-up, and I would love to do at least one. Eric has pretty good upper arm strength, so he was astounded that I couldn't do a single pull-up. I proceeded to tell him that I can't really even do a correct push-up, so I got on the ground...in a dress, mind you...to prove to him of my physical un-fitness. Then, we went even further to talk about how awesome it is when people do a hand stand against a wall and do an upside down push-up. Eric and I both were interested to see if he could do it and these are the unfortunate events that followed... (I am apologizing ahead of time...I wasn't thinking, so I put the camera on its side...but I promise you it is well worth tilting your head for a minute or so)

i'm am now obsessed with www.poladroid.net...it allows you to download an application for free that turns your digital pictures into "polaroid-like" pictures. Polaroid pics are so fun and vintage-y looking...yay for poladroid!!!

Eric and i stayed at the Viceroy hotel in Palm Springs for our anniversary...and LOVED it! It has a cool, contemporary, hip feel. I loved that it was small and hidden. We loved the service, the food and the decor!

We passed the hotel twice when we were trying to find it, because it was so hidden...

We had dinner on the outdoor patio all to ourselves on the couch against the back wall. Of course I forgot my camara, but got this shot the next morning as we were leaving. It was so romantic and nice to be alone.

Our room...I LOVED the black and white with yellow...I might use that in a future house someday:)

game night...

We had our friends, the Ballards over for a little night of hilarious games and some delish hot coco. We started off by playing a round of The Office (thanks for the game Sammie!). Now, the Ballards love The Office just as much as we do, so that was a pretty intense game filled with many "that's what she said"s being thrown around. Next we broke out the wii and played for a while. I almost peed my pants from laughing at "Knowshawn" and "Fifi" (Kevin and Lyndi's wii characters). I am very proud to say that both Lyndi and I completely DEMOLISHED our hubands in boxing:) I was extremely sore for the next few days, but the night was hysterical and we got some great action shots:) Thanks for coming over Ballards!

Now this pic is absolutely hilarious...I was so determined to beat Eric at boxing that I think I ripped my arm out of its socket...

one year down...a whole lot more to go!

Eric and I had our anniversary on the 5th of this month. I can't believe the year has gone by so fast! We went to Palm Springs to celebrate (pictures to come) and had a blast reminiscing about this past year of marriage. I am so grateful to be married to such a wonderful, loving husband. He is the most selfless person that I know and he keeps me laughing daily. He allows me to be my goofy self and makes sure that I am always happy. I love him to death and wouldn't want to spend the rest of my life with anyone else! I love you Eric! Happy Anniversary!!!
