We've come to the conclusion that this was one of the best weekends we've had since we've been married.  It was just over the top great!  We started celebrating Thursday for Bryce's birthday BBQ at my mom's house.  We had our family over & enjoyed the outdoors!  My mom was a great host and made a delicious fruit pizza for the cake - it was devoured!  Bryce turned the big 25 and in honor of his age I walked into our bedroom to discover he'd fallen asleep at 9:30.  My sweet old man :)

Mom's fruit pizza cake - SO yummy!

This was completely coincidental!  We thought it was pretty funny

On Friday we had the day off to sleep in and get things organized for our weekend in Park City.  Once again Bryce's connections are nice and we had a free condo to stay at over the weekend that sleeps 12 people.  We didn't want the space to go to waste so we invited up our friends and about 8 couples came to celebrate Bryce's birthday with us.  We had fun eating pizza, sides, & chocolate cake.  Then we played my most favorite game, Rollick and died laughing at everyone's acting skills.  We kept playing different games, people hot tubbed, watched movies, and finally around 3 am everyone crashed somewhere or another.  We woke up Saturday morning and all went to breakfast together on main street.  It was so fun and I'm grateful to everyone who came!!

We continued the day by shopping with the Shermans at the outlets where I got my SWEET nike shocks.  I'm so excited for them.  Once we said goodbye to them it was nap time before our delicious night out on the town.  My mom spoiled us with a gift card to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and it was the best dinner I have ever had.  The steak melted in your mouth, the sweet potatoes were amazing, and the free anniversary cheesecake was over the top devine.  I was like a fat cheshire cat leaving that place.  Thanks mom!  We spent the rest of the weekend hot tubbing, watching our wedding video (tradition), eating, shopping, seeing a movie (Dark Shadows - I would not recommend spending money to see), and just being in love.  It's been the best 2 years of my life and we have SUCH a big year ahead of us, I can't wait!  Love you Bryce.

Bryce's Graduation

What a fun day!  I know graduation commencements are the most boring thing on the planet, but I still love graduation days.  There's such a great energy at commencement with everyone and their family - so excited for the person graduating.  Seeing family you don't always get to see, so on and so forth.  This was a pseudo-graduation for Bryce in that he technically has summer classes to complete by Aug 1 until he's officially finished.  It still made more sense then him waiting to walk until April 2013 when we wouldn't even remember what he was graduating from :).  His college was the last one to walk around 7 o'clock that night.  It was fun to have family there to support him and cheer him as he got his diploma.  He was a good sport since I was primarily the one who "made" him do it ha ha.  Afterwards we went to Red Butte Cafe, which was nice since it was later and not a super popular place that we were able to sit right down and enjoy ourselves and some delicious food.  It wouldn't be a graduation post without mentioning the graduation gift Bryce accumulated all of his money for - a brand new TV.  His first-born pretty much ha ha.  He loves that thing and I still just don't get it, but I can't complain.  It's fun to watch movies with him and see him so happy about it!  Anyways - we will probably take a trip of some kind to celebrate him being truly finished in August.  Congrats B-MUNZ - so proud of you!

Arizona Vacation

Arizona vacation for me - business trip for Bryce.  It's kind of a sweet deal.  We flew in Sunday and drove to our jaw dropping resort.  Hands down the nicest place I've ever stayed.  We wandered around and were enjoying getting settled in and watching conference, until Bryce bit down funny and his front tooth broke off.  Literally half of it was gone just like that.  And his business conference hadn't even started!  Very bad luck.  He was able to keep the broken piece laying on the top of the remaining piece most of the time.  Unless he was eating or talking - it occasionally flew in my face during a conversation.  Attractive, I know.  But he survived!

We were able to go shopping while we were there at the mall and go see a movie (surprised? ha ha).  The movie theater was actually one of the highlights of the trip for me.  The tickets weren't that expensive because once you got to your luxurious love seat for two a waiter would take your order and bring you food during the movie.  It was pretty cool!

While Bryce was listening to boring speakers I was able to go to the gym and workout every day that we were there.  It was so therapeutic I can't even tell you.  After working out I'd head straight for the pool all day long.  That Arizona sun is intense!  I wore sunscreen the whole time and still had some lobster red going on.  The first night of the conference they had an opening mixer sort of thing.  We went for the free dessert and music/dance floor.  It's nice not knowing anyone there - you can afford to be completely silly and avoid embarrassment.  Other than that the trip was a blur of eating, sleeping, and relaxing.  I'm glad we had this opportunity to go on such a fun trip together.  I'm proud of Bryce for attending the conference and grateful he let me tag along to have a much needed break!  Until our next business trip :)
