Today is our 5th anniversary! We actually celebrated yesterday and it was the best we've had yet! Usually we are driving across the country or setting up a summer apartment, but this year we were home and I loved it.
Sean's classes ended earlier this week so we got to spend quite a bit of the day together. We planted some stuff in our garden and went out to lunch. After dropping Jackson off with my sister, Sean and I went to The Roof restaurant in Salt Lake. It's in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and overlooks temple square. The tulips were out and they were beautiful! The view from that restaurant really is incredible and we were lucky to get a window seat.
Sean surprised me with a wedding band!! It is BEAUTIFUL and I absolutely love it. It really was a complete surprise and so thoughtful. It means so much to me that he took the initiative and picked it out on his own. When we got married we decided not to buy a band because we didn't have much money and I had no idea what I wanted. I think the band he chose is so classy and timeless and it looks great with my ring-- I couldn't have picked it better myself!
Sorry the pictures of the ring aren't very clear. Dinner was awesome and as you can see, so was dessert:
So here's to five great years and many many more to come!

We had a great time dying eggs with my sister and her family Saturday night. Sean and I started a new tradition a few years ago dying eggs with silk ties (info here). We hit up the D.I. to pick out new ones each year and it is something we both look forward to. Apparently the word is out because there were a few other people checking out ties at the same time. No fights over ugly old ties broke out that I know of. Here are some of our eggs from this year:
This was also our first Easter on our own. I felt it was my appointed duty to make my first traditional Easter dinner-- you know the ham, potatoes, Jell-O, etc. I don't know if I was just starving or what (our church doesn't end until 4pm) but I'm pretty sure I ate enough to last me until at least Wednesday. But really, I am still planning on capping off the day with a brownie sundae-- I might as well be honest! Hope you had a great Easter!
