2nd Grade

Scott started 2nd grade this year. I can't believe that my baby is getting so big! He loves his class. He knows several of the kids in his class and has a great teacher.

8 Years!

Matt and I celebrated our anniversay a few days early this year because he was going to be out of town on business the day of our anniversary. I can't believe that we have been married for 8 years now! Where has the time gone? It hasn't been an easy 8 years that's for sure. We've been through a lot of ups and downs but I know that we have grown from the experiences.

This year we celebrated by having dinner at Pizzeria Bianco in downtown Phoenix. We tried to do it a couple years back but didn't realize that it was a popular restuarant and the line was like 2 hours long, no thank you! So this year we decided to go earlier. I got off of work early and we headed to downtown and walked right on in. It's not a very large restuarant which is why the line to get in ends up being 2 hours. The food was okay, if you have been to Grimaldi's it is very similar, so we tried it but don't think that we will be going back.

After dinner we headed to the Chandler Mall b/c I had received a gift certificate from Helzberg Diamond for a free pair of pink pearl earrings. Score! Who doesn't love free jewelry?!

After I got my free pair of earrings we headed to San Tan Village to try to catch an early showing of Captain America, but before we went to the theater we hit up Pandora. :) I got a new charm for my bracelet that I had gotten for my bday.

{Charm for Anniversary}

This time I got to pick which charm I wanted. I love it! Once we had made our purchase it was on to the movie. We ran into some friends and chatted, then I looked up at the time listing and it said that the 6:20 showing of Captain America was sold out!! What? We were a little bit disappointed so we looked online, using my phone, to see when the next showing around the area would be, b/c the next one at San Tan was like at 8 or something close it. We found a 7:15 showing at Gilbert Stadium and made our over there.

It was a really good movie! We really enjoyed it, and are excited about the new movie featuring the comic book heros that have come out in the last couple of years. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it and stay through the credits b/c there is a teaser of the new movie that will be coming out soon.

Happy Anniversary to us!!
