our third anniversary...

My mouth looks a bit funny here, but I thought it was cool this picture turned out, because this was me marching towards Trevor telling him, no more pictures haha.

So Trevor, who normally hates taking pictures or getting pictures taken haha, was ever so willing to take some pictures of me at City Creek for a "personal style post." Funny thing is, I was super embarrassed with all the people around. So wait a minute, me not wanting to take pictures, and Trevor wanting to take pictures!? - talk about a role reversal! hahaha

P.S. I just noticed how this outfit, and my last personal style outfit, match my blog colors hahahaha.

*Documenting my personal style to make sure I keep the promise to myself, to always be fully dressed with a smile.

As you may have seen in my last post, Saturday was Trevor's and mine 3 year wedding anniversary! Crazy how the time is flying by. Trevor was gone all week for internship interviews for next summer, and I started another job (on top of my other one) - so we had been too busy to really have anything planned for what we were going to do that day.

Last minute Trevor suggested going up to Salt Lake City and seeing Wicked. I was dumbfounded because I never thought he would want to see that kind of show! I guess even after three years you can still learn something new about your spouse, right?! haha I guess Trevor likes musicals... who knew?! haha I saw the show back in 2007 in London with my mom, so I knew it was amazing and thought Trevor would like to see it, but I also knew there was no way tickets were available the day off the show haha. I was right, they were sold out.

But they told Trevor about how they do a drawing for ten tickets where if you get picked you can buy two tickets for only $25.00 and you get orchestra seating. Your odds all depend on how many people show up for it, and the guy told us he has seen it as low as 30 people to over 100. We decided to take our chances, and thought our odds looked really good until the last minute tons of people showed up hahaha. Needless to say, we didn't get picked :( But now that I know Trevor would go to a show and enjoy it, I think we need to just buy some tickets (ahead of time haha) and go see it, he would love it :)

With no show happening, we decided to just spend the day in Salt Lake City since we were already up there. Being there was actually really fitting, and brought back so many memories. Salt Lake City is where I met and fell in love with Trevor. Where we got engaged, and where we started our life together. We spent the first two years of our marriage there, in our nasty small apartment, haha oh man... the memories.

We explored the new City Creek Mall (wishing that was there when I used to literally live up the street from it!) had a nice dinner (like... soooo yummy), saw a movie at the theater we used to go to all the time, and hung out in some of our old stomping grounds. We even parked in an old parking lot we used to go to all the time and just sat there for a bit. I was loving it. It was a great day!

We may not have been able to get the Wicked tickets, but we were able to have a day that was like visiting memory lane! I could see where we started and where we are now. We have grown so much - so much has changed since collage. We talked a lot about where we are going next in our lives. I love our past, but I am so excited for our future.


I couldn't help but think... 
"this is what building a life with someone is like. this is it. right here."

Happy Three Years my Trevor! To many more!
