Dal and I do Saturday morning cleaning together then chill at about 2pm. At 4pm he tells me to get ready and to pack an overnight bag with a couple clothing options. Huh, I wonder what he's got in store...We leave the house at about 6pm and he takes me to the Lodge Restaurant to eat, great conversation, great atmosphere, and GREAT chocolate cake! We head to downtown Reno and show up at the Peppermill, which happens to be a little away from the strip and is also one of the nicer hotels here. He surprised me with a weekend getaway to dowtown Reno for our anniversary! After we hung out in our room for a little we decided to wander the casino and hotel, there was lots to see!
Our weekend included swimming outside in 40 degree weather, the pool was heated so it was perfect, lots of eating, relaxing, exploring, etc. It was such a perfect weekend, I couldn't have planned it better myself. We also remembered our wedding day and the funny stories...
1. It was 5:30 in the morning when I got up to get ready. After doing the initial stuff I sat down in the living room just thinking about what I was about to do later that day when all of a sudden the back door opens and in walks Whitney with a McDonald's breakfast for me, what a doll! All the girls walked in with her to start helping me get ready, talk about good friends.
2. We just got to the reception hall when I realized I didn't have my bouquet and hadn't had it all day! Celine and the girls to the rescue! They ran over to the temple where the florist had dropped it off earlier that day and requested a temple worker to grab it from the fridge that sat by the entrance, which was just for bridal bouquets. For some reason or another they wouldn't get it for them so Celine runs past them into the temple, grabs my bouquet from the fridge and they book it out of there before anyone knows what happened!
3. On the way to the temple with Mom and Dad, Dad jokes around that we could still skip out if I wanted to..half serious half joking :)
4. Dallin went to sleep the night before the wedding with a couple people in his hotel room and woke up the next morning to about 10 people including a girl sleeping on his floor.
I can't believe it's been four years already, the best four years. I don't remember why I was ever scared in the first place to get married, but it's been the most fun, exciting, loving, BEST time ever. Love ya Dallin!
Our room, first morning room service breakfast!
