Amazing Weekend Part 2!

My amazing weekend part 2! 

Saturday was spent eating mass amounts of yummy fall foods, taking lots of photographs, sharing kisses and happy anniversaries with my love, and seeing old friends and amazing bands.

Here's the run down:

Went to Ihop with Scott, his little sister, and dad for anniversary day breakfast. Had a yummy veggie omelet, fresh fruit, and some of my Scott's pancakes (he always share with me<3).>

Who would have guess that a guerrilla and a bumble bee would fall in love? 

The rest of the afternoon was spent at baby Emerson's first birthday party! We had a lot of fun eating, playing, taking pictures, and spending time with good friends. Here is a few photos from the party: 

The Godfather feeding his Godson a caramel apple. 
Amanda and Zane! Cutest couple I swear<3
Oh hello<3
Taking pictures with Em in the photo-op thing that Scott built and painted (I helped with the painting a little too!). If anyone can tell me what this thing would be actually called I would super appreciate it.
Exactly three years later<3
Baby Em and I!
Amanda and I! Lovvve her!
Mother and son (their names for each other in high school).
The photographer doing his thing (taking photos of baby Em and family opening presents).
Scott fixing the bean bag toss that he made (and I painted!).
Caught in action! Lindsay (Em's momma) taking pictures at the party.
Did I mention that we turned Scott and a few other people into mummy's? I was super fun and I got very dizzy going round and round! 
Scott and all his TP haha

Around 5 o'clock the party ended and we helped clean up a bit before we loaded and headed to our friend Amanda's house to drop her off. We ended up staying about an hour at Amanda's talking with her and her family. It was really great to spend time with them. Amanda, Scott, and I were inseparable for the longest time, and always the greatest of friends, but unfortunately with all of our busy schedules we seemed to drift a part over the last year or so. I am so happy Amanda came to the party though and that we had a chance to reconnect. I am very much looking forward to future hang outs with Amanda and her boy Zane. Hopefully we will all be at the state fair together come Saturday night.

After we left Amanda's we decided to head down to the Hot Box where Anarbor, Lydia, and Straylight Run were playing. We mostly went though to see a few old friends, such as an old band-mate of Scott's, and also his old band manager. We did however run into a few more familiar faces and got to see Anarbor play (They were amazing! There new music is so catchy and fun!), and a little bit of Straylight Run's set (Ohhhh John Nolan<3). 

Sunday was spent doing homework, getting iced coffee from Coffee Beam  and seeing Amelia with my mom and grandma. 

Overall, this was the best weekend I have had in a very long time. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life, and couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Thank you to everyone who made it so special for Scott and I :]

Three years<3 Always and forever!

A little late, but here it is-written on Friday night. More to come<3

Exactly three years from tomorrow (Saturday, 10-24-09) Scott asked me to be his girlfriend in the parking lot of a dorm building off of Apache and Rural in Tempe, Arizona. It was a special night, because that night we made it official and it has been the same way ever since.

Today Scott and I did our anniversary festivities because most of our day tomorrow will be spent at little Emerson Jude's first birthday party.

We had our usual Friday morning coffee together at three roots. I had an iced coffee and even got a yogurt and granola parfait (the best!). I also gave Scott a small part of his anniversary present, carrot cupcakes and a fall trail mix jar! They both were delicious!

After I got done with my internship, which went really well today, I went over to Scott's house and did a little painting. More to come on that soon. Afterwards we went to Target and did some shopping for a certain baby boy, and then went home to exchange anniversary presents.

WARNING: our anniversary seems to be our favorite day of the year and we always spend way more than we should, but we love each other and have fun spoiling one anther.

Anyways, I gave Scott one of his presents first. It was....drum roll please.....a RECORD PLAYER:

He has been eyeing this same one for months now and I just had to get it for him. 

Scott gave me his present to me next. He handed me a beautiful bag that I realized was made out of this vintage pillowcase he had bought at Goodwill. It is a beautiful bag and I'm so excited to carry it<3>

All my wonderful presents<3

My beautiful Tiffany's charm!
I wonder what it could be....
 Oh, and yes we did buy each other almost the EXACT same card. I swear we share the same brain<3

Before I continue I just have to say that I feel incredibly blessed to have received all of these amazing things, and even more blessed to have Scott in my life. He is more than I could have every hoped and dreamed for in a partner.

Anyways, I gave Scott the last part of his present next! Two records, Cursive-The Ugly Organ (sounds amazing on vinyl!) and Brother and Sister by Mewithoutyou (Scott's favorite band!), and a knitted beanie by me! 

We had dinner at 905, a favorite veggie friendly restaurant of ours that we have been going to for quite some time (Scott longer than me). Recently the restaurant went under some remodeling, and to our surprise was very different since the last time we were in there in May for my birthday. The food and coffee was just as wonderful though.


Oh hai!

Fancy place settings.
Best saigon coffee ever! 

After dinner went went to Scott's house and listen to some records for a little while. We ended up stopping by Brian and Lindsay's apartment for a bit so that we could wish baby Em a happy birthday.

I think it's for you Em!
Oh, and yes, that is pure maple syrup in a brown paper bag.

And now I'm here, very tired and in need of sleep. Tomorrow will be a very busy day, but I am very much looking forward to it.
