D-Backs Game

Sorry this is a little late, but I was having issues w/ my internet running really slow. But now it is back up to speed. Thanks to Matt's brother J.D., Matt and I and our friends Joe and Jackie we went to the D-backs/Marlins game. These weren't just any ole tickets, we were 4th row from the D-backs dugout!! Score, for us!! We had a blast, and not to mention the theme for the night was 80's night. Although we didn't know until we got there. In the spirit of 80's night they superimposed the faces of the players onto 80's movie covers and showed them on the jumbotron. So I would like to share some pictures with you all of our fantastic seats.

Joe and Jackie
Matt and I, this is bad angle but it will have to do.

Not much is happening right now. I have survived my second week teaching nursery and I love it. Matt will be starting a new semester at ASU in a week and half. This will be his last year. Finally!! Yesterday was my anniversary at work, 7 years! I can't believe that I have been working for Wells Fargo for that long. Time sure does fly.

I have befriended a new member in my ward, she was just baptized a couple weeks ago. Her and her daughter live in my apartment complex and so last night I invited them over for dinner. We hit off and so did the kids. My husband kinda grilled her on a few questions to help her understand the gospel a little bit better. She was impressed and said that it made her think a little bit harder and more indepth to the basics that she was taught by the missionaries. She has really taken to the gospel like a sponge soaking up water. She loves it and has a testimony. This is what she has been looking for for a long time. I'm glad that she has made the decision to become a member. We have a wonderful ward that has welcomed her and her daughter with open arms.

I guess that is all that I have for now. I will have more this weekend b/c it is our ward swim party. More to come with that.

Happy Anniversary to Us

Yesterday Matt and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. I can't believe that it's been 5 years! Time sure does fly. Last night we celebrate by going out to dinner, nothing fancy, just enjoying each other's company. We wanted to try a new pizza place in downtown Phoenix called Pizzeria Bianco. Matt read that this was rate one of the tope 5 pizza places in the nation. So we get there at opening time, 5pm, and there is a line outside. So we get in line and the hostess said that there was a 3 1/2 hour wait. 3 1/2 hours!!! I couldn't believe it, b/c we got there at opening time.

So we decided that we didn't want to wait the 3 1/2 hours to eat, so we went to Bobby Q. This restaurant is off the I-17 and Dunlap. We get there and were seated right away. Just the way I like it. Matt was telling me as were driving there that they have the best cornbread that he has ever tasted. I have to agree it was really good cornbread. I had the grilled shrimp w/ chimichuri pesto w/ mashed potatoes and grilled veggies. Very delicious! Matt had the prim rib w/ mashed potatoes and sweet corn. Within 10 mins of ordering we had our dinner, talk about fast service. I also order the peach cobbler to go.

We came home and took Scott, my brother Chris and his wife Carree out for Nielson frozen custard. They were babysitting Scott for us. We had fun hanging out with them and talking about just about anything.

I love being married to Matt, he is a wonderful husband and father. He may forget to do things b/c he is busy trying to finish school. He is not a romantic but when does surprise me it means a lot. So Happy Anniversary to Us!
