Anniversary & Giveaway

Our Chalkboard Wall! Watch out for a post on this!

Two years ago (tonight around 6pm) I married the love of my life, and my true best friend. We have had such a great 2 years and look forward to many, many (78) more.

Here we are, 2 years ago. 
(I couldn't choose which picture I wanted!)

Here we are, just yesterday!

We had such an amazing weekend together. Starting Saturday, with me being able to sleep in (my fave), while he went to the gym (his fave), then he brought me home a dark chocolate mocha latte from DD. We sat around, then headed out for our 3 hour relaxing spa time. We were served lunch, quiche, cucumber, apple slices and chicken noodle soup, in a tea cup!, followed by dessert, of pound cake & brownie with honey, white chocolate, strawberries and cool whip ~ plus everything was organic! I also had a Mimosa of champagne and organic tea :)

After lunch, we laid around. The place was called "A Day of Delight" in Stuart, FL, and the setting was just gorgeous, and the people were SO nice! 

After laying around we had a couples massage with body scrub and a wax paraffin hand treatment! This was so cool, we dipped our hands into a "crock pot" type thing filled with hot wax, then our hands were wrapped in plastic and we sat around for 10 minutes. When it was time to remove the wax just peeled right off our hands. I wish I had gotten more photos of the hand wax and couples massage room, there was a trellis with interwoven vines, flowers and lights hanging above our heads, it was so cool!

We finished out the night by having dinner at Miller's Ale House in Jupiter and watching the UFC fights on PPV (Go Bisping!!) 

We started our morning the same way on Sunday (Sleeping and Gyming), less the latte (not sure why...). In the afternoon, we took a (beginners) Trapeze Flying class, at Aerial Trapeze Academy! It was so amazing! I was a bit nervous, which comes out as my potty mouth, haha. But after it was done it was great! 
We learned to do a knee hang from the bar, and stretch out to look for the catcher, and also a back flip dismount! Out of my 4 tries, I did both things twice! I didn't make it as far as Tyler, who actually got to do the mid-air transfer to the pro, but I was proud that I made it as far as I did! Tyler did really awesome, and I wish we had brought our phones or camera, but we are definitely returning and will take pictures and video next time!

We also had plans to go to dinner and a movie on Friday, but that got pushed aside with all our crazy activities, but we'll get there! 

NOW for the fun stuff! I have my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY coming up REAL soon, from It Works! Stayed tuned for more info on that!! I will be starting my own kit as well, I am SUPER excited!

PLUS we have an amazing, secret weekend planned and I can't wait to share it all with you!! Make sure you look out for all this exciting stuff coming up!!

Until Next Time.
