Date 15: Board Games

We have so many board games in our closet. In fact, we listed a million of them for our wedding registry. So why weren't we pulling them out and playing them more often? Who knows! This was so much fun though. We moved the couch, coffee table, etc out of the main space. Sat down and played for hours! It was a blast. We did Old Maid, Go Fish, The Simpsons: Loser Takes All, etc. Time just flew by! We laughed and made jokes at one another and just kept playing. I made some delicious energy bites to pass the time with snacks. 

Energy bites:
1 cup oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup psyllium husks (helps keep you running!)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
vanilla to taste I did about a tablespoon

You can adjust to your liking. So yummy! Matt says they taste like rock cookies his parents make which he loves!

Date 14: Desert Star Playhouse

This week was our two year anniversary.... Yeah! We had such a great time together. We drew out for this week to go to Desert Star, well technically we drew this out a few weeks ago, but you have to buy seating a few weeks in advance. So it all worked out to be a great date to celebrate our marriage.
We ordered tickets to see The Princess Bridesmaid. What a great and hilarious show. I thought Matt was going to die from the laughter. I was so glad he was able to enjoy himself. Matthew even told them it was our anniversary so they announced our names and congratulated us on our two years of marriage! 

We even exchanged gifts. I got the most beautiful flowers in the world delivered to my school. I felt so specials and they had such a sweet little card attached. 

I got Matt a number of items. First this hilarious card! It reads: " Happy Anniversary to someone with a really cute butt!" 

Then as you open the card the man is clearly farting... Matthew says he is smoking!  

The inside reads: "Well...except when it talks!" I laughed so hard when I found this at the store. Yeah people were staring.
 I also got him so little things: golf club cleaner, golf tees, golf balls, beef jerky, candy, drinks, etc... 

But the one thing I really enjoyed, as did he was a page I printed in the shape of a heart that has words from our wedding day.  I found this website tagxedo and it allows you to put in as many words as you would like to describe, well anything. I put in a list of all sorts of things: the day, the temple, our reception area, for time and all eternity, McKnight, etc. Then choose the shape (a heart), our colors from the wedding (green/orange), then printed. He really loved the idea as did I. 

Here is another sample of what you can do. I love this website! 

Another great website that does the same thing only a little more simple: Wordle

Date 13: Going to a Sporting Event

Huge thanks and congrats to my cousin Chris. Congrats he finally graduated from the U, thanks because his graduation overlapped with a Blaze game so we go his tickets!
We went to dinner with my parents. Then to the game, best part was they won! It was a fun, inexpensive/free way to get together and enjoy each others company. It is always fun to watch Matthew get into the games since I normally don't watch very many with him.
