Third Anniversary: Where does the time go?

Another anniversary has come and gone for Tim and I and I can barely tell you where the time has gone.

Yesterday was much like any other day in February which has been busy. Tim has been up to his neck in work and I have been running around doing errands, helping friends, volunteering and occasionally doing work.

Last night we put the laptops, iphones and other electronics aside and went out to dinner at Ford's Filling Station in Culver City. The food was yummy and the company as always lovely. Afterward, we stopped at Cafe Ugo because we had spied they had a gelato bar (my kind of bar) and each got a little gelato. It was a warm Los Angeles night and it was so nice to be together and just talk and laugh and forget about all the stuff that may or may not need to get done. A perfect way to celebrate 3 years of marriage.

Next, in our crazy lives is a long weekend to Sin City. Unlike our 1 year anniversary trip in which our flight to Las Vegas was a comedy of errors, we are taking all of Friday off and flying out in the morning to hopefully avoid last minute craziness and LA's Friday night traffic. We'll let you know.

For now we are so thankful for each other keeping the other sane in these hectic times.

Year Two | Month Eleven

Last month, we traveled to St. Louis to spend Christmas with Tim's family. It was a lot of fun, though cold. We ate our body weights in homemade chex mix and lounged by the fire. It was quite relaxing.

We had a low key New Year's Eve which is our preference. We don't like to be out on the roads with all the people deciding to try their hands at getting a DUI as their new year's resolution. So we had an early dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant,Sasabune. Then we headed home and watched The Hangover which we missed in theaters over the summer. It definitely wheted our appetite for a Las Vegas trip in the near future. Though hopefully not as crazy as the movie.

In the New Year, Tim and I have high hopes and aspirations. Only time will tell if they will come to fruition.

Year Two | Month Ten

Life has been busy. The rest of the summer flew by! So did Fall for that matter.

Tim had to go up to San Francisco for work and I had just completed a contract project so I decided to go with and also get the chance to see my sister, brother in law and adorable nephew.

We spent 2 night in SF. The first day, Tim worked all day and I explored SF until I was too tired to walk around anymore. Then I went to Topspin's SF office and watched Cannonball Run with Tim's coworkers. We then went to the House of Prime Rib. The meal was decent minus the live bug I found in my salad. But all was forgiven when the 81 year old "owner" came to our table to apologize and stole a kiss on the cheek.

On Friday, Tim went to work and I headed to East Bay to hang with my sister. I came back to the city and Tim and I had a decent dinner at Burger Bar before being too exhausted to explore the city further.

Saturday we headed out to the East Bay and stayed with my sister and brother in law and spent lots of time hanging with our nephew who has so much energy I wish I could bottle it up and sell it.

Coming up on our calenders are Royskopp concert, Friend's Thanksgiving, regular Thanksgiving and Christmas with Tim's family in Illinois.

We are almost at the 3 year mark and it feels like just yesterday that Tim was suggesting we go to Robbins Brothers to look for an engagement ring.

Tim and I took a vacation up to Portland, Oregon. Though the weather was a little warm a few days we had a lot of fun. Portland is beautiful and green. It also has things Tim and I love like espresso, huge bookstores and indy record stores.

We had a lot of fun exploring and also relaxing at our hotel. It was a good time to reboot.

End of the night

For the 4th of July long weekend, Tim and I hung out like bumps on a log or rather Reads on a couch.

On July 5th, we rolled out to our old neighborhood, Hollywood to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Death Cab for Cutie with the LA Phil. It was a great concert including the opening act, Tegan & Sara, who we also love.

The photo is from the finale in which the fireworks went off in time with Death Cab for Cutie's song Transatlanticism. It was an awesome closer. Here is a youtube video that someone else (I don't know) took:

Next up: Braces off for me and a trip to Portland for both of us.

Second Year| Month Four

Coolhaus Truck

June wasn't very eventful.

After our joint birthday celebration with friends, Tim and I celebrated my birthday with Prime Rib at an LA institution, Lawry's Prime Rib. It was a lot of fun and delicious.

Since then things have been pretty quiet. Except that I decided to try and start my own practice. Things are moving along with that and we'll see in a few months if it continues. For now, I am happy.

We have also been spending lots of time hanging out together, which is awesome. The picture is from our trip tracking down the Cool Haus truck which is one of many "food trucks" a new trend in LA. They sell yummy custom ice cream sandwiches. And since we tracked them down in Santa Monica it wasn't much of a heartship.

Next month - Death Cab for Cutie at the Hollywood Bowl and more.

Two Year| Month Three: We're Thirty!

Since February Tim & I have been very busy. In March we went to Mill Valley to see friends get married. In April we worked hard. And on May 18, Tim became an adult...or at least turned 30. Since I will be following behind him shortly. So last night we enjoyed a fine meal at Lula's in Santa Monica and did a very short pub crawl because we are no longer 21 years old. Yes, it was something that definitely aided in showing are age.
