Playing Catch-Up {1 Year Anniversary+30th birthday bash}

Sickness, birthdays, Anniversary, graduation, and Mother's Day Have been occupying my time the last week or two. 
I hope to catch up with several blog posts tonight..
Here Goes:

Last Sunday {May First} Aaron and I celebrated our one year {marriage} anniversary! We were going to go to Moab for our anniversary but due to the stomach flu and short staff at work, It was not feasible. So we decided to play it simple. 
We went to IKEA to get a frame and then went up to Sugar house to run some errands. We got frozen yogurt at TCBY, and then went to petco & BB&B.
Then we went to dinner at the Garden Cafe. 
{at the Grand America Hotel}
 ♥

 I always love the flowers they have there. Rennuculous' are one of my favourite flowers<3
 This Chandelier always makes me swoon! 
 If you know me you know that I am pretty well a vegetarian. I loathe meat. This restaurant is one of the very few that I order meat. Seriously the most delicious food I have ever tasted! This was the New York Strip, with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables, and Pesto sauce. MMM MMM.
 Seriously, if you live in Utah and have never been here.. Your missing out.
Aaron got some sort of Fettuccine Alfredo chicken dish. 
He said it was the best he has ever had.
The Garden Cafe is where Aaron and I ate the night of our engagement. It is also where we had our wedding luncheon, so it is a pretty special place for us.
***
After our dinner we headed over to my older sister Kate's, for her 30th birthday bash!
 Little sister, Big sister, Natalie.
 I made Nat throw balloons at me while I photographed her. I'm sure she will love this.
 Intense conversations.

 Kate had a lot of pretty flowers in her house. These were in her bathroom.
 I loved this cactus box she had in her living room.
 Little sister partyin' it up!
 Bobbie being her cute little self.
 Kate's awesome condo, I wish I lived here!

 Playing games. 


 HAPPY BIRTHDAY SISTER! I ♥ YOU!

 This is what 1 year old gluten free wedding cake looks like.
 It was really, a beautiful cake. I need to get the {original cake} photos of it up on here for reference.
 I actually didn't mind it if you got it warm enough ;)
 I love my husband!
 ***
 We brought the dogs home a little toy and some treats. Oscar had just thrown his toy out of view in this photo.
 Sammie was in love with her toy.
The flowers Aaron picked for me from our yard<3

Sorry for the picture overload! I have so much to catch up on! 
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

I'm sooo glad you are back! I wondered what had happened to you haha. But life is more important than blogging, that's for sure.
Congrats on your one year of marriageeee! I'm so jealous of the food you had. I'm sorta like you, I never order meat at a restaurant, but I would definitely order that If I ever went there.
Dang, your sister graduated AND had a birthday? She probably got some serious dough this month ;) haha glad you are back!
