It seems absolutely crazy that
Cameron and I have been married for a YEAR already. Our lives have changed so much since we said, “I do”
that sometimes it feels like we've been married forever…but mostly it feels like yesterday.
though I get paid like 25 cents an hour (at least it feels like it) and we are
poor as church mice we knew we wanted to do something really special for our
first year anniversary. Cameron took it upon himself to plan our Anniversary
trip and to keep it a secret to up the excitement/romance factor. We decided
that since our anniversary was on a Saturday that I would take a Friday off and
make it a long weekend so that Cameron didn’t have to take school off and I
didn’t have to miss more than a day of work.
Cameron planned our trip and the night before we left he told me where we were
going and what we were doing.
Cameron got really close to one of the
members of the bishopric when he was serving as the Elders Quorum President in
our singles ward. Cameron loves this man. Whenever he talks to this brother I
say, “How was your best friend?” He calls Cameron his “church son.” Cameron’s
best friend has an amazing house…ok it’s
kind of a mansion…in Arroyo Grande that he
currently trying to sell. He told Cameron if he ever had a special occasion
that he wanted to stay at the house he could. You know, the old, "Mi mansión es su mansión" When Cameron told me that it was
a mansion I figured it was just a nice house. But I underestimated Cameron. Let
me tell you what…this house is AHHHHHHMAzing. We
drove up to Arroyo Grande Thursday night after I got off work and when we drove
up I realized I was in for an amazing weekend.
Here are some pictures of our borrowed
The view from our amazing balcony. You could see the
ocean off to the right. We ate breakfast out here every
morning. Absolutely stunning.
Day 1-Bob Jones Trail, Avila Beach, Bocce Ball
Friday morning we slept in and ate Bagels and
then headed to Avila Beach.
It was a perfect day. The first place we headed
was to my absolute favorite place to run:
Where we randomly ended up
running into my Aunt Lisa and Uncle Joe! It was such a nice surprise to run
After our run we ate at Avila
Grocery and spent the day laying out and playing Bocce Ball. It was a perfect
and very relaxing day.
That evening we went to one of
our favorite places to eat in San Luis: Petra.
Go ahead and be jealous of my Dollar Store sunglasses, if you want.
This guy was SUCH A CREEPER! We watched him stand there in his tall socks, tennis shoes, and hair and mustache straight out of Miami Vice OOGLE girls in tiny bikinis pretty much the whole time we were there. When we were walking to our car we saw him get into a white TOTAL creeper van, too. Watch out for this perv if you ever see him at Avila, ladies.
Petra makes us so happy
Day 2: March 16th (OUR ACTUAL ANNIVERSARY) Old West Cinnamon Rolls, almost puked my guts out, nap, Morro Bay,
Aquarium,Giuseppe's Cucina Italiana
This is my face before I ate a delicious Old West Cinnamon Roll:
This is my face:
I was SO sick, my friend. I don’t know what happened, but by the time I got to the Butterfly Grove down the street in Pismo, I felt like I was going to vomit. I had to sit down while Cameron looked around at all of the beautiful Monarchs.
Yes, I do think that they are doing itright here, so sorry for the PG-13 photo. All of the other butterflies were too far away to get a clear photo of!!
We went to Vons to get me something to help my stomach and 3 or 4 times I wrenched and bent over because all of the blood had drained from my face and I thought I was going to puke in the middle of the store. To make a long story short, we got some tummy medicine, took the recommended dosage, headed back to our mansión and took a nap.
Two hours later I woke up and was
ready to finish our day. I never threw up and was perfectly fine after medicine
and resting, but it was a super weird reaction. Sugar overload? I think, yes.
After the tummy-episode we headed
to Morro Bay and walked around and went to the teeny tiny aquarium and looked
at the fish and fed the Sea Lions.
YES. Don’t worry, we were
DEFINITELY wearing our matching shirts. A few people commented on them and LOTS
of people stared at us. That’s how we roll.
Happy Anniversary to the
love of my life
Day 3: Last day L Walk around the property,
Lunch at Klondike Pizza,
Sad to leave :(
Sunday we woke up and decided we were too sad to leave already and to just stick around the
whole day. We went and walked around downtown AG, ate lunch, and went back to
the house and packed up.
Next we went somewhere I HAVE to publicly thank my husband for humoring me and doing. You see, I grew up on the Central Coast and have
never had the chance to go to the Melodrama and I have always wanted to go! I had
told Cameron I really wanted to go before we left for our trip, but when I
initially told him he seemed pretty much uninterested in going so I let it go
at first…but then we saw that the
melodrama’s theme currently was LES MISERABLES and I pretty much BEGGED him to
go with me. Well, Sunday at 6:30pm we were in our seats and I was hoping that
it would not disappoint.
We were both thoroughly
At the Melodrama
Even though we didn't get home until the WEE hours of the morning and I had to be to work by 8am Monday morning, I didn't regret that we squeezed every possible second out of our trip that we could.
It was amazing.
A BIG thank you to Cameron’s best friend and his lovely wife for letting us stay in their home. I couldn't have imagined a better trip in the whole world.
And thank you, Cameron, for planning an amazing trip! Thank you for marrying me! Thank you for putting up with a CRIZAZY wife! Thank you for being wonderful!
