One year anniversary!

Happy Anniversary Babe!!

I can't believe that exactly one year ago today, Chad and I became husband and wife!!

Being married to Chad has been amazing. Who would have thought that I found him on! He really is the best husband that anyone could ever have. I am the luckiest person in the world. He treats me better than I've ever been treated. He loves me for who I am. He makes me laugh. He's a hottie with a great smile and some really kissable cheeks! He's perfect. This is the man I love and want to spend the rest of my life with! (This picture cracks me up, we took it last night at dinner!)

I can't believe that it was a year ago last night that we were having our rehearsal at Steph and Brad's house and then dinner at Oregano's! I remember that I started getting really nervous that night... not because I was getting married to the man that I want to spend the rest of my life with, but because I wanted everything to go perfectly. I remember going to Bashas at like 10:00pm and buying cold medicine, gum, magazines and other things that I didn't really need... just because I wasn't tired and had so much on my mind!! I remember staying the night at TJ and Jenn's house (in Luke's room!) the night before the wedding, since it's bad luck to see the groom before you walk down the aisle.

I can't believe how many people flew in from other states to share such a special time with us!

I can't believe it's been a year since we went on our amazing honeymoon for 12 days to Puerto Vallarta, where we snorkeled, swam with the dolphins, went on a sailing trip, went to a tequilla factory, went on a pirate ship dinner cruise, bought some Crocs!, rode in some SCARY cabs and thought we were going to die as we were whipping around and realized how much we love American food... and Dr Pepper (we went to the Hard Rock twice!).

Last night, we celebrated our anniversary with dinner and a movie. TJ and Jenn watched Brynn for us - thanks guys!! Chad took me to The Melting Pot, which I had never been to before. It was really yummy and was a unique experience!!

And we topped off the night with some tequila from the factory that we went to in PV. YUM!

One down, many more to come!! Thanks for being so great!!

I love you Babe!!

Happy Anniversary, you guys. Amanda, I am so happy that you have someone who treats you so well and loves you so much. Who would have thought when you left the blustery midwest that your life would turn out like this...and you totally deserve it! You guys have had such an awesome first year and I'm excited to see what your second year brings.
