April 17, 2009 is not only Tadd and my 1 year anniversary, but it is also my best friend Amanda's birthday. The weekend started on Thursday night, as we went out to dinner for Amanda's birthday to Mexquite, a yummy mexican restaurant in Folsom. She invited the two of us as well as a few other girlfriends and her parents, of course! Then we went to work on Friday, and then headed up to Tahoe. We ate at the romantic restaurant, In & Out and arrived at the cabin around 8pm. We then decided to exchange gifts. I got Tadd, "Love Coupons" as well as a nice brown watch. He then proceeded to present me with my gift, which was the top of our cake from 1 year ago that he had shipped from Arizona to California in a dry ice box. We enjoyed our wedding cake together and watched our wedding video and reminisced of the day we were sealed in the temple one year ago! We then attended the Reno Temple on Saturday morning (and I fainted while we were there?!). We then headed back and were able to go snowboarding for a short hour at Squaw Valley (thanks to Tadd's boss who gave two day passes). We then got home around 5:00pm and ate chinese food and lounged in two leather chairs all night. On Sunday, we slept in and ate breakfast together. We then studied the lessons that we would be learning if we were in Church that day. We cleaned up a little bit and headed home. It was a relaxing and enjoyable weekend away together to celebrate our first year of marriage.

Over Easter Weekend, we had quite a few friends come to visit and we were able to spend time with people that we do not normally get to. On Friday, our friends Trent and Lisa from Arizona came to Sacramento to visit their family. We were able to go out to dinner downtown at Paesano's which was really tasty and reasonably priced. After that, we headed to Capitol Bowl...lovely little bowling alley somewhere by the ball park downtown. Lisa and I were able to purchase some lovely bowling socks as we did not come prepared in our high heels with socks! We then proceeded to play a few games in which Tadd and I were victorious. At around 11:30pm we decided that since Tadd and I won we were going to try and find a Dairy Queen to celebrate on our friends wallet. However, after a good detour around town, we found the DQ, CLOSED! Owell. We enjoyed a very fun evening with friends!
On Saturday April 4 and Sunday April 5, 2009 as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we are blessed to have the opportunity to listen to apostles, prophets and leaders of our Church. We were able to watch a broadcast from the Conference Center in Utah and listen to wonderful talks about Jesus Christ, faith, service and many other spiritual and uplifting messages. We are able to enjoy this broadcast twice a year, once in April and again in October.
Two weeks ago, University of Phoenix took all the Sacramento employees to a Staff Meeting at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo CA to celebrate 15 years in Sacramento Valley. We only took a few pics, but Team Rancho had a blast riding the rides and having a nice Friday away from the office!
