One Year Anniversary and My Best Friends Wedding!!

Last weekend was AMAZING!!! Nate and I celebrated our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! I can't believe it's been a whole year already! Nate has been such a great husband and has never stopped treating me like a queen. He is so patient and sweet to me. I can't believe how lucky I am to have married the most perfect guy out there.

We were married on April 24th, 2009. It just so happens that my best friend Addie decided to get married on April 24th 2010. :) So... our anniversary weekend was spent with her and her wedding.

I did however wake up to the cutest breakfast in bed and flowers Saturday morning. It was so sweet. Saturday morning was pretty much the only time we would have to spend together for the day, so we tried to make it last as long as we could.

We went to Rodizio Grill Friday night for her rehersal dinner and then spent Saturday with her. The wedding ceremony at the temple was so sweet. The weather was BEAUTIFUL and couldnt have been more perfect. It was really cool to be at the same temple on the same day that we were married. It was a perfect way to remember our wedding day.

The new bride and groom! They are so freakin cute and so in love!

The wedding reception was so much fun! My other best friend Jessica and I were Addie's bridesmaids. We had alot of fun hanging out and eating all the brownies and ice cream they were serving! ha ha.

After it was all said and done, the wedding day was perfect. I'm so happy for Addie and for finding Sam and getting married in the temple. I've never seen her so happy before. Love you long time Ad!

P.S. I gave Nate a surprise trip for our anniversary so we can really celebrate! We leave May 10th. SO EXCITED!!!

~Happy Birthday Baby!!~

The Big 24!!!

This whole entire week has been Nate's birthday! It's been so much fun to celebrate with everyone on different days. Last friday, April 2nd was his actual birthday. He had to work :( so I got to go and have lunch with him. When he got home from work, I had a fun date night planned. First of all, I decorated the house for his big day. It was quite fun for me to do actually. I think I enjoyed it more than he did :)

He then chose to go to Red Robin... YUM for his birthday dinner. It was SO good! We love that place!
Then after dinner I took him to a surprise! It was something that he has always wanted to do. We went PAINTBALLING!! It was a blast! I don't recommend wearing tight jeans though... OUCH! But it was still so much fun!

When we got home, we got into our sweats, watched a movie and then opened presents and had cake and ice cream.

It was such a fun day to spend together. Throughout the week we had a birthday dinner at his parents house, then at my parents house. My grandparents took him out to dinner last night and tonight we went out with all of his friends to dinner and poker night. The week is officially over... Until next year sweetheart! Hope you had a great birthday! You deserve every bit of it. I love you with all my heart. MUAH!

The Johnson Family

Hey everyone! So I finally caved and decided to blog. It just looked like so much fun! I'm VERY new at this and would love any fun ideas/creative tips :)

A little background on our family... My husband Nate and I both graduated from Hillcrest High School. We knew "of" eachother because of mutual friends, but never really talked or hung out together. A few nights before he left on his mission, he over heard me saying that I didn't know how to drive a stick shift car so he offered to teach me. We went on a good drive, stopped at a park and talked for hours. He even took me up the canyon for a fun drive. After that night, I didn't see him until he got home from his mission.

We "re-met" at a stoplight in April of 2008 and since that night I told myself I wouldn't let him out of my sight. We were engaged September 2008 (at the same stoplight)

We were then married on April 24, 2009 on our one year anniversary.

I still can not believe we've been married for almost a year! Time flys when you're having fun!
We were fortunate enough to buy a house in Draper and love it here! We bought our sweet puppy Roxy (not so much a puppy anymore though).

She's been a sweetheart and so much fun to have around the house.
We love every minute of life and couldn't be a happier family!
