Anniversary No. 2

Saturday, November 29, 2014

You all know by now that I definitely have the best human ever made to call my husband. Why? He is cute (duh), sweet (obviously), and unconditionally selfless (plainly). Want to know more? Read just about every other post I have ever written. I can't get enough of my man, or bragging about him for that matter. There is no other person on this planet (or any other) that I would have rather spent these past two years with, as they have definitely been a wild ride. 

This last year of our marriage has been a journey. We have moved from Idaho, to Texas, then back and into a house that has proved to be an exciting project. We both dived straight into our hardest round of classes and have days where we hardly see each other. We have experienced miracles unlike anything I had ever expected to happen in this life, which naturally have also brought us trials to shake everything we stand on. But we have grown closer together as we strengthen and stand by each other through it all.

This year our anniversary kind of came at a very inconvenient time. First of all it came on a Monday, second of all we both had a couple huge tests to take, third of all we were trying to prep for driving to Washington the next day, and lastly, we have had our fair share of car troubles lately and the majority of our rainy day/holiday funds have been required elsewhere...but that's what makes the first years of marriage fun right?

So our celebrations might not have been as extravagant as last year's,  but I promise you they were just as full of love, laughter, butterflies, and happy reminiscing as the day we tied the knot. 

After a long day of classes, school work, studying, and test taking, we were ready to relax and celebrate our day of love! 
First Stop: Sushi, because it is delicious and we love it.
Second stop:We took a collection of our favorite treats (each carrying a special memory) to the movie theater to watch the Mocking Jay Part 1! (We just had to, considering last year we went to Catching Fire) But before the movie started we had to get in some arcade games where I whooped him at Iceball, then he got me back by destroying me at basketball...but together we earned enough tickets to win a couple wooden tops and candies!
Third Stop: Home! We set up a cozy bed in the living room where we finished off our snacks, popped the sparkling white grape juice open, and toasted to a wonderful year of happy memories.
Fourth Stop: Our Anniversary Temple Tradition was put on hold for a couple of days...but when the day came to uphold the tradition it was extra special to be able to go through the same temple we were sealed in two years ago.

Happy Anniversary to my darling little husband who never fails to make me smile. I love Kirby Lee Muir!!!

 Well you can tell life has been busy if I am this late on so many important things! 

1st - Kirby's brother came home from his mission...yay! We are oh so happy to have Kelton home and so thankful for his example and the time he spent serving the church.

2nd - Kirby's grandfather would have celebrated his 100th birthday with us on Halloween (the day after Kelton got home) so the family got together to celebrate for him. We planted a tree in a park, another one next to his grave, spent the morning doing sealings in the temple, and had a wonderful dinner/game nights at the church. I love being a part of this family!
3rd - Miss Madelyn Frame came home from her mission exactly one week after Kelton! My two favorite missionaries! I drove to Boise by myself (a big step for me) to spend one night soaking up the stories and laughter she had to share. It was so incredible to be able to have all my favorite friends together again, even if it was only for a short while. Time at the Frame's is always a time well spent.

 3rd - Halloween! It was wonderful, great, fun, sweet, spooky, a little sketch, and everything in between.

The Monday before Halloween we had a couple of our most attractive friends over for a little pumpkin carving FHE extravaganza! It was a definite you can tell.

And we finally have room in our living space to have a little party! Yay! So we had quite a few people over for some games and treats...and costume showing off of course! This year has been our favorite costume yet! I wish we had a better picture for you, but what can you do right?

After the party had died out and it was just us and a few close friends the husbands decided that they wanted to go exploring in the woods to find the infamous chupacabra...and the girls wanted to go on another adventure of sorts...aka another party. So we went our separate ways had a little too much fun, then said goodnight to the ghostly holiday.

Well as you can tell, the last couple weeks of October were a little crazy, and November has proven to be just as exciting. But it looks like that is it for now ladies and gents, thanks for stopping by!
