hiking anniversary

Yesterday was the two year anniversary of when Tyler and I became roommates. Or “roomieversary” as I like to call it. Neither of us are exactly sure when our friendship and continual hanging out turned into dates and a relationship, so I decided this is when we will celebrate our anniversary.  And he kindly obliges. I force him to take pictures and go on a date. We went hiking in Boulder and it happened to be the first time I have ever gone hiking. I was nervous I would hate it the whole time or just die of exhaustion. But I actually loved it! I think there will be many hiking trips in the future. Yes, it kicked my butt but I think for a first time and at such a higher elevation than I’m used to in flat-ole-Oklahoma, I did pretty well. You’ll see in the pictures that he was ahead of me for it but I made him stop so I could catch my breath (many times) and take pictures of how pretty it was. Yet again, you really can see the majesty of God’s creation up here. I had a brilliant idea and asked him if that could be a tradition- to do something one or both of us had never done for our annivesary. He agreed. 🙂

After the hike and getting all beautiful again, we went to dinner. I got to wear my new dress and my favorite shoes- mama’s cowboy boots. We ate at Texas Roadhouse, one of my absolute favs. And by ate- I mean stuffed our faces with cheese fries, honey-butter rolls, chicken (me), steak (him), and sides. Then we just hung out. He gave me flowers and a really sweet/funny card. He’s not much for romance so this literally made me giddy- seeing the flowers.

The main reason that I decided to post about this was to show you pretty pictures. So enjoy (even though they are all crappy cell pics)
