Happy 4th Anniversary to Us!

Our Thursday, July 28 Matt and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary in Vegas!  We went to see Criss Angel's show "Believe" at the Luxor and then had a late dinner at Valentino's at the Venetian.  I had an awesome flank steak and Matt tried rabbit for the first time.  

The best part was the SUN!  It's been missing in Seattle this summer so it was nice to see it again and we finally have tans.  A lot of people have asked us for money saving tips since this was our 5th trip to Vegas and we've learned a lot about how to have fun on the cheap there.  That will be a separate post so stay tuned!

Happy 4th of July!

Matt and I hosted a 4th of July party yesterday, but it wasn't just any old celebration of America's Independence Day.  I won the ability to host a Budweiser Ultimate Backyard BBQ from  It was a blast!  Budwesier gave me favors and prizes for the guests and they will be reimbursing me for the beer.  We really lucked out with the weather.  The day started out yucky, but it cleared up around 2 PM and turned into a pretty beautiful day which was good because throughout the course of the day 18 people showed up!

The cats were locked up so they couldn't run away, but Luna mingled with the guests and had to get into the action.
