anniversary #3/spring training game

John and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on March 20th.  It feels like we've been married a lot longer than that (in a good way) because we have 2 kids.  This was our first anniversary that I wasn't pregnant or nursing...hurray!

 I woke up in the morning surprised with these things on the table.  I actually didn't even notice them until Brooklyn said..."Ooooo Mommy...treats!" 
 John wrote me a sweet card and what each thing on the table meant...some bits from the card:
.....I still have a "crush" on you.....we have "double stuffed" our family with two great kids.....I will always be your "Mr. Goodbar"......continue to "break me off a piece" of your sweet love....and "orange" you glad you married me?!  Ha ha...I thought it was cute.

We didn't get each other anything this year (student's budget!) but treated ourselves to a nice and GOOD restaurant that night.  I swapped babysitting with a girl in the ward who has kids our same she watched them for us.  We went to Oregano's...which is an Italian place, about half hour away from us, and SO.GOOD.  We ate SO much - appetizer, salad, pizza, AND dessert.  We had a ton leftover and I didn't have to cook dinner for the next 3 nights!   It was so fun to be alone together and celebrate with good food. 

Two weekends ago (Friday night) we went to our first spring training game, Mariners vs. Dodgers.  It was only 10 minutes from our apartment and a perfect night for a baseball game.  We met our friends Tal and Alison there and sat on the grass.  Brooklyn loved being outside and entertained everyone around us - she ran circles around us and played with her soccer ball the entire time we were there.  We didn't stay the whole game, kids were getting tired and ready for bed, but had a fun time.   


  1. Ok that is seriously crazy you've only been married 3've accomplished a lot of good things in a short period of time;) HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! So glad you got away for a good dinner.
    And he did SO GOOD with your treats. SO CUTE!

  2. Hope you guys had a good Anni. We love Oregano's, such good food. I'd like to discuss all that you got there. Nice gifts from John! I love surprises awaiting me.
