One year Anniversary--July 21, 2011

One year ago today I married my best friend and husband Jason Barber.  I cannot believe that a whole year has passed by and it has been awesome. Jason surprised me with two dozen red roses, a beautiful necklace, and a scrapbook of memories from a year. I gave him a jar full of 100 reasons why I loved him.

It was so cute, we also went to one of my favorite restaurants Olive Garden. Our waiter was not very interested in us so the manager felt bad and gave us a free piece of cake.  We also went bowling and had a blast. I am so glad I have him in my life and many years ahead of us. 

Minnesota Family Reunion 2011

In mid July I flew to Minnesota to my family reunion on my mom's side.  I have not seen my mom for a year so it was fun to see her and my sister Gabby.  We went up into Northern Minnesota to go camping and swimming in the lakes.  Unfortunately, Minnesota was on a state shut down because they were having money issues so some of our favorite parks were closed.  We still got to go to Saw bill Lake and swim, and it was definitely a lot cooler in Minnesota than it has been in Tennessee.

As we drove up North we stopped in Duluth, MN and saw these tandem bikes.  There was one that seated six people. My cousin Sara, Terrance, Morgan and Spencer, Gabby and I all pedaled around this track.  It was so fun but it was hard work.  We were all sore the next day. It was a great family reunion.  Mom, Gabby, and I went to the Mall of America.  It was a lot of fun spending time with my family.  Sadly, Jason had to stay home because he had class and had to work.  It was hard being apart for a whole week but we survived.
