Happy Seven Years!

Thursday afternoon my husband calls me up. "So, what do you think you want to do for our anniversary?"

Me: "Oh man, I don't know. I've been online all day trying to think of something fun and different to do. But I'm pretty much coming up blank."

*eruption of laughter on other end of phone*

Him: What'd you do, google 'What to do for your anniversary'? That's just bad honey. That's worse than me!"

Just so we're clear, I did NOT google that. So there.

So then I asked Mister Wise Guy what his big idea was. Believe it or not, he actually had one!

They had to resuscitate me from shock.

He made some phone calls and convinced his mom and sister-in-law to watch our kids Friday night and all day Saturday. I don't know what he offered them but it must have been something good, because they agreed.

So after work on Friday, we drove down to his parents house and dropped of the kids who happen to absolutely LOVE going there, and then drove up to Jackson Hole, WY.

True to our nature, we hadn't planned a dang thing. We just sort winged it.

Saturday morning, we took the big tram in Teton Village up to the top of Rendezvous Point which sits at 10,450 feet.

Ah look, here we are surrounded by the beauty of the mountain! Oh wait... that's just the tram tower. 

See that ity bity little white peak there behind my head? That's the Grand Teton, which sits at 13, 000 something feet.

 And now that I'm in a picture with it, I'm officially super cool.

Not a bad view! I won't tell you which part of the picture I'm referring to.

Here we are being all romantical, because "romantical" is a cool word.

View of the Snake River. I hate this picture because it makes my thighs look huge. 

So rude.


And by my choice of footwear, it was obvious I had come prepared to trudge through the snow.

When we were done shouting our love from the mountain top, we did something that I've always, always, always wanted to do!

We rode a ski lift! Which, now that's it's summer is called a bike lift. Wahoo!

We rode it twice, because it was free with our tram ticket.

Being all romantical again. Especially since this photo accents my chicken pock scars so well! Looks like I got tasered right in the forehead or something.

Told you I was cool.

Even our feet wanted to be romantical.

As you can see, it was so busy I can't believe we got a seat!

I was trying to squish the little people walking below.

And now you've seen my extra-long toed, size 9.5 to 10, super long feet.

Your life is now complete.

Your welcome.

Next we took a stroll through downtown.

And I tried to swim through the salt water taffy barrels but the store employees didn't appreciate it and kindly asked if I would control myself.

These truffles fascinated me! They looked super cool but I couldn't bring myself to try one.

I think they look like sushi. *shudder*

Okay, and they were a dollar each. We got the ones that were only 75 cents.

Because we're money conscious like that.

I wanted this sign for my kitchen. It says, "Whoa! You missed it!" there is the middle.

But in the end I decided that it would trouble if every time I went to leave my kitchen I encountered this. I would have to turn around and go eat more candy! I'd probably never leave.

I'm sorry, but the Jackalope is kind of cute.

I'm not ashamed to admit it.

After I was almost malled by a bear, we went to this super-mega-ultra cool store that I simply can't remember the name of now. The whole thing was filled with the most amazing "nature art". Meaning, things that have been found in mines, quarries, etc. that have been shaped into these gorgeous art pieces. 

Like petrified wood tables, mammoth tusks, bright blue butterflies arranged in frames, and gems and crystals in all shapes and sizes. I should have taken pictures but I was too busy gawking.

Check out this bad boy.

$145,000! We thought about getting it for out living room, but decided that kids might think it was a big sucker and treat it accordingly.

So we passed.

John Wayne ain't got nothin'!

Happy Seven Year Anniversary to us! I had such a great time!

I'm still working on trying to convince my man there to post on my blog.

I think I'm wearing him down.

Lisa told me once that I have snuffleupagus eyelashes. Maybe I'll try batting them profusely at him.

How could he refuse!

Happy Anniversary! It looks like you guys had such a great time! What a fun idea.

Royalbird said...

Happy anniversary! So which day is your anniversary? Is it today? Ours is today. But, true to our form, we did nothing.

I love Jackson Hole. So fun!


Lisa said...

Never even stinkin' been to Jackson Hole. It looks a lot like Park City, doesn't it? Man, one day. One day. And thanks for the snuffy shout out! You really do. Does husband of seven years know how lucky he is that you're his bride? I'll remind him. What's his cell #?

One Cluttered Brain said...

Aww! Looks like you had a fabulous time on your anniversary!
i thought you would lose a flip flop on the lift...Whew! i am glad you didn't.

Aww man! no husband posting? Really?
Tell him I say, "He is chicken." I mean I danced to Cotton Eyed joe on my blog, certainly her can just post...LOL!

I like the pic of you two in cowboy hats...

Have a great week!

Lara said...

She is right. You do have Snuffleapagus eyelashes.

Looks like a great time together. :)

Kristina P. said...

What a fun idea! I will have to keep it in mind for the future. We always end up in Park City.

T said...

fat thighs? yeah - maybe in comparison to the rest of your skinny self, but then you dispel that rumor quickly by posting the picture with your leg over the rail :)

and yeah - snuffleupagus eyelashes ferSure!

Sue said...

It's always fun to get away like that with the hubby...

(and I wish my thighs were fat, too. Exactly like yours, please!)


Brittney said...

You get in trouble when you say negative stuff about your body in public when you're STINKIN SKINNY!! You're gorgeous, and you do have pretty eyelashes.

The Martos Fudge said...

Happy Anniversary. We will be hitting our 7th in December. My Hubby grew up in Cody WY, and we went to Jackson Hole a few years ago. I love the town, I am pretty sure I have a picture with that same bear.

Valerie said...

Happy anniversary! It looks like you guys had so much fun!!

Living the Scream said...

that sounds like such a fun getaway I particularly liked the one where you were squishing the people with your toes lol

Jackie said...

What an amazing trip. It looks incredible!

iamwoman said...

SO FUN! And I was thinking that about your eyelashes right before I read what you said about them. haha! I am jealous. I have short and stubby and it is a pain.

Ben, Heather and kids said...

Happy Anniv!! (we celebreated 8 yrs this past wk too.. but we only went out to eat) :)
How great that you are that close to Jackson Hole.

Larsen said...

Your thighs are fine. They don't look fat one bit. Silly girl.

Do you know the Barbie Movie the Princess and the Pauper?? . . . "How Could She Refuse" is one of the hit songs on that show. You could sing it to him. . . .and that would help wear him down.

You do have Snuff?. . .alupagus' eye lashes. LUCKY.

Okay off to another T ball game.

Braden said...

Happy anniversary! That looks like a lot of fun--just taking off like that. How great. LOL snuffleupwhatever eyelashes.

Ahhh...I love the Little Rascals :)

Happy 7th!

Saimi said...

Ahh, what a great time!! You guys look super cute and hardly the parents of four children.

My crazy brother actually climbed the Grand Teton. I like your version of seeing it in the background.

Happy Anniversary!!

Charlotte said...

We're spur of the moment travelers, too. Good job on your husband with the plans. Also, great choice of foods.

Sounds like you had fun!
You made me laugh. Glad you guys could get away, super awesome!

P.S. About your comment on my garden post? Yeah, don't forget.... In about two weeks it'll be too hot to grow anything but mold in the fridge. Then I'll be wallowing in the misery while you're loving the weather!!

MindyannaJ said...

Those toes of yours brought back some memories! Do you still pick things up with them? :)
Way to go on getting away for a day! It looks beautiful!

ldsjaneite said...

Can't. Stop. Myself. Must. Share.

Happy 7 years!!

Wonder Woman said...

I've hiked Grand Teton! Not for the faint of heart, that one. Nearly puked from the elevation change.

And you do have snuffleupagus eyelashes. I thought so me-self when I met you. Husband guest posts are always hilarious. Start batting away. And happy anniversary! We're coming up on 7 years, too!

Cheeseboy said...

Happy anniversary! Great photos, even with the BYU tee shirt. Congratulations!

Connie said...

Happy Anniversary! Looks like you had tons of fun, love your long toe!

Happy anniversary!!! Did you stop by Bar J Wranglers? That's probably my favorite Part Jackson hole, is their dinner and show. :-) Congrats on seven years together!

Krista said...

Wow! Seven Years! Look how much you accomplished!

~*~Eneida~*~ said...

Happy 7th!! I personally LOVE that you wore flip flops...my footwear of choice!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Laura: I've seen the Bar J Wranglers once at a high school about four years ago. They were awesome!
But no, we didn't get a chance to go this time. Wish we had!

Doran & Jody said...

Happy Anniversary!

Looks like a load of fun but I am curious as to
WHY!!!!? You did NOT go see BAR J Wranglers? That lack of choice caused you some missed gut laughing episodes.

Just sayin'

M-Cat said...

Happy Anniversary! And I think I will add jackson Hole as place to visit with my husband.

And if the batting eyelashes don't work, I find whipping out the good boob does. Every.Time.

Marcie said...

I'm so glad you guys went. As Mona Zabriskie always says, you need to really get out every once in awhile. I'm envious of how beautiful it looks there and cool too. Our garden is dying in the heat here. It's so hot. I'd love to see mountains.

Neisha said...

Happy Anniversary! Looks like your hubby did a good job at picking out something for you to do :)

Garvin Smith said...

Happy anniversary! I especially like the "light bulb" toes!

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

Happy Anni! That looks like loads of fun! But just about anything could be fun just the two of you sans kids for a few days! I love Jackson Hole! To look...too pricy to actually buy anything!

christian@dontdodumbthings.com said...

Happy anniversary! I really want to go up to Jackson Hole.

Is that $145K thing a giant crystal?

So what's the proposal story you referred to on my blog?

sumidubi said...
