Las Vegas

To celebrate our 1 year anniversary we decide to go to Las Vegas! First it is close and second I have never been there before! So we went down on Friday night and stayed till Monday in the very nice Monet Carlo. While we were there we learned a lot about Vegas... most importantly we learned what to do and what not to do the next time we go :) Unfortunately I was not the smartest and I wore some bad shoes our first day and ended up getting some pretty bad blisters on the balls of both of my feet so we were a little limited on our activities. Most of what we did was walk the strip and visit the hotels. The water show at the Bellagio was awesome and one of our favorite things! One of the nights we were able to go up to the Las Vegas temple and do a session, we mutually agreed that it was the best part of the trip! We ate a lot, people watched, shopped, and just enjoyed the change of scenery! I already have a list of things to do the next time that we go; their is always too much to do and never enough time!
At the M&M store... its the M&M's!

One year down, and an eternity to go!!

We are excited to say that we celebrated our first anniversary! We can not believe that a year has passed since the most amazing day of our lives… and what a wonderful year it has been! How did we celebrate our anniversary you might ask? Well naturally I had to work all day Monday that night we went to dinner at Carrabbas (which is where our second date was at and where he first kissed me) and dinner was awesome! We also had the best waitress we have EVER had! Then we came home and ate a piece of cake from both receptions, I could not believe that freezing both of them really worked! Any who they were both still great! Now for all of you who don't know, Michael is very thoughtful and creative. Well he figured out that the gift theme for the first year anniversary is paper. He found this place online that makes "messages in a bottle" and that’s what I got! It is just that, a message in a bottle with a cork on top. There is a little message on the front of the bottle that says "It doesn't matter where you go in life or how much you acquire, It's who you have beside you that really matters." There is an antiqued paper inside with a poem written on it just for me! Anyways, it was so sweet! I am telling you all, Michael is the best thing that ever happened to me and I don’t deserve him. He is s so good to me and makes me feel like a queen each and every day. We have a long road ahead of us but I can’t think of anyone better to go down that road with! This year will be bringing us many new and exciting changes and so we are ready and anxious to continue this adventurous journey! He truly surprises me each and every day and never lets me down!

A bitter sweet day

Well today was the day that my brother Logan entered the MTC. My mom and dad flew out here yesterday with Logan. Then last night my grandma and grandpa Wagner had a very nice big dinner for all of our family in Utah who was not able to come to his open house in Colorado and everyone was able to wish him good luck on his new journey! All morning Logan was jittery and very excited to get going. He was so excited and ready to just do it! Then this afternoon, I, Mike, my mom, my dad, and my cousin Melissa took him to the MTC. Naturally, it was hard to let go. The MTC president told us all that he left our arm and went into the Lords. What a wonderful thing to know! We are all so proud of him and the road that he has decided to take. This is a journey that will be well worth it and will help him shape who he will become. We are all very excited for him yet we will all miss him (my mom and I decided that red eyes will be a new look for us during the next week!). We wanted to thank all of our family and friends for all the love and support that you give to us and to Logan!
