It was this exact day 3 years ago that Michael Udall Reid took me on our first date. I don't know how many people know the story , but here is the short version. I had just gone through a pretty rough break up and was not really looking to get serious. Mike being the sly one that he is pulled some moves on me at the ward opening social. He got my number ,there were a few texts and then next thing I know he calls me up and asks me on a real date. That may not seem like much to most people but I had just been through the whole deal of someone not taking me on dates and just wanting to hang out all the time and never really acting serious about our relationship. It was so nice to have someone actually call me and ask me to go on an official date with them. I was already feeling good about this. So the night was amazing and we talked and talked like we had known each other for years. The whole thing felt so comfortable and natural. It was a perfect first date.
So to celebrate we went to Jason's Deli , which is where we went for dinner on our first date. We talked about what the other was thinking that night and we joked around a lot about Mike's good looks and charm sweeping me off my feet. It was fun to think back about that time in our lives and the beginning of our whole dating experience. Here are a few pictures from when Mike and I had just started dating.
Mike's first BYU football game. Look at him now a true blue fan. I take full credit
You better believe we are the birds and the bees for Halloween. I think this was a pretty good sign that we were going to get married
Now is the time I throw in a few engagement pictures because if it weren't for this magical day there would have never been such a happy little couple
This is a project I have been wanting to do for months now. I finally had some free time while I was waiting for Mike one day and I decided to give it a go. It can take a good chunk of time to make all of them but I think they are so fun to have on hand for showers. I also thought they could be so cute as place settings for a shower or party. You could put each person's name on them and lay them on the plate. One day I will make a variety of colors to mix in or use for different things but for now I am liking the purple and green!
So each year for Mother's Day I make something to wear for my mom and grandma and any other mothers who will be at Sunday dinner. This year I decided to try my hand at the tissue paper flowers. I hand painted each of them. I am super bummed because I never got a picture of my grandma's flowers or Dayna's flowers. I just found these pictures on my parent's computer and realized I never posted about them. So I thought why not throw up a super late post. I made so many more for my mom's birthday party. Next year I think I might do these again but give them a little more umph. They are a fun little project!
I know I have been super lame with blogging lately but I am picking up 2 more jobs and still have a few more weddings coming up. So my life has been a little bit busy. Plus when I get home I like to spend some time with the hubsters. Look how cute he is on he his last first day of school at BYU. I mean we still have like 8 more years for first days but at least this one is kind of sentimental since we met here at BYU this time of year 3 years ago. Good luck with this year Mike! I know it is going to be a busy and stressful one but it will be worth it. Oh and Mike got his first interview for Dental School! Michigan! I have never been there but from what I hear everyone likes it. Also check out a few pictures my sister posted from the wedding I did a few weeks ago.
