Monday was our third anniversary. I know everyone says it, but I can't believe how fast time flies. Before we know it we'll be dancing the funky chicken at our 50th.
We took the day off work and headed to Salt Lake/Park City to check out a few consignment shops I found online. This may seem like a strange way to celebrate, but it makes total sense for us. Nate and I spend a disproportionate amount of time discussing our house and how to decorate it.
Random Tangent: We sold our couch recently and a few couples came to look at it. When each of the wives would ask their husbands what they thought, the husbands would say, "I don't care. Whatever you want." It was so strange. Nate is just as much involved (if not more) in all of our house designing. I could never buy a couch without his opinion.
So we found some fun new shops. We have been struggling with the fact that we purchase too many of our home furnishings from Ikea. The selection in Utah just feels so limited. (I so wish we had a West Elm.) But we did find some new places where we could make some future purchases so I think it was a successful day.
We did make one purchase:
We want to incorporate more yellow into our house and this guy seemed like a surefire way to do that. Plus he makes me smile. I need more things in my house that just make me smile.
It was a fabulous day. We kept trying to take a photo of ourselves, but they all came out blurry. (Think The Ring.) Nate did get a video of me acting out an electronic hula girl lamp in the middle of a store. It's pretty classic.
It's been a good year with lots of ups and downs (hopefully more ups). Nate is my BFF, my better half, my rock, and a lot of other cliches that would potentially embarrass him. Love you babe. Here's to a million more years together!
