So....Jordan and I have been married for TWO YEARS!! Our anniversary was on Sept. 25 and we did a little celebrating that day, but then we went to Newport Beach this last weekend for scheduling purposes. Here are some amazing pics!
We stayed at the Marriot Vacation Club resort in a beautiful room. The weather was amazing and the company was even better :)

I had an AMAZING filet mignon, garlic roasted asparagus, red potatoes and sweet miso corn sauce. It was as incredible as it looks and sounds. We also had mango bbq ribs as a starter. Jordan had parmesan-herb crusted opa fish.

|I really dig this picture Jordan took. The colors are beautiful!!|
So, while loading up on food supplies Saturday night, I became temporarily obsessed with these pumpkins. I had never seen them before, and I particularly thought that the Fairytale pumpkins were the most beautiful things I had ever seen. So, I asked my mother in law if she wouldn't mind bringing me home one by the end of the week, if they weren't available in AZ. Luckily, I found some at my neighborhood Trader Joe's (love) for even cheaper. I LOVE my fairytale pumpkins!!!
|On Sunday, after church, we walked around the Newport Temple. So beautiful!|
After the temple, we (my in-laws and Jordan and I) went to look around Roger's Gardens, a beautiful and huge home and garden store with beautiful plants, flowers, and home decor displays to wander through. Obviously, we weren't going to shop, but we did go to look at everything and it was SO amazing! There were of course, hundreds more fairytale pumpkins, which further cemented my need for one, and a very cool Halloween boutique. After looking at the Rose Garden and many other sections, we ended our trip with a glorious Christmas display with at least 12 trees in full splendor and glory. It was a wonderful afternoon.
|How cool are these? My mother-in-law went back during the week and got me one. She is so nice :)|
|Did you know!!?? Disneyland has an official rose. I might need one of these too. (btw this picture is for my penpal)|
