Columbia, MO

Last weekend and all this week the guys have been selling in a little town called Columbia, that is about 2 hours away. Jenny and I decided to go hang out with our Hubbys last weekend. We had a good little weekend and got to eat at this yummy BBQ place and then we walked across the street and got delicious frozen custard! YUM!

Happy Anniversary!

Mike and I just celebrated out 2 Year anniversary a couple of weeks ago- YAY!! We had a great day. We started it by going to the Ritz Carlton for Brunch, which was delicious, and then we were able to go down to the St.Louis Arch, do some shopping, relax, and just enjoy being together. We are so happy together and are glad that we have made it through 2 wonderful years! I always think its funny when people say they think we are so young to get married and that we're taking on so much earlier than we have to, but I always respond, "There are going to be hard times in life no matter what, marriage is a lot of work, but you always have your best friend to go through and get through everything with!" Marriage is awesome and I love Mike SO much and can't imagine my life without him! Thank you for all you do babe!
At brunch... not a great picture... we really are a lot happier than we look! :)

Mike and the Arch

It really is impossible to explain how tall and awe-inspiring the Arch is in real life

APX Office Olympics

This past week we a had fun Office Olympic event one morning before the guys went out to sell to help pump them up and celebrate the Olympics going on right now. Of course things got pretty intense a few times with 20 guys competeing on 4 teams :) We had a belly flop contest, 2 different relays- one that consisted of swimming across the pool with floaties on arms and legs, and another teammate had to get a ballon across the pool without using any hands- the other had gatorade chugging, pie eat, and sinking toys all with swimming in between, and then we had Watermelon Football (which is almost asking for an injury... but they were all able to stay mostly injury free so they could charge the rest of the week). Here are some fun pictures of our activities.

Some fun from the Summer... A short recap

All the cute wives at one of our first activities for the summer- going to downtown St. Louis, eating at Hard Rock cafe, and walking down to see the arch!

A few of us went to a cool tennis match a month or so ago. Jenny, Holly, Allie and Me

We were able to throw a shower for a few of the girls that are pregnant out here this summer. This is Me, Jenny, and Allie. We've been able to get to be good friends with Jenny and her husband Wyatt, and little boy Crew.

Cafe Rio night- Yum! Jenny and I made the Pork, black beans, Rice, and Ranch Tomatillo dressing for these delicious Cafe Rio salads. It wasnt exact but definitely satisfied our Cafe Rio cravings we've been having since we've been away! This is Mike & I, and Jenny and Wyatt's cute boy Crew.
