2 Year Anniversary

Chris and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary this past week, July 11. Yes, that is free slurpee day, and yes we did get one!!

We booked a 2 night stay at the Hilton in Salt Lake City. We have stayed there before and love it!! Whenever we go anywhere, or we buy anything, I try to get the most from our money. Believe it or not, we are not rich. So when we do spend money, I want to make sure we get a good deal. This has embarrassed Chris in the past because I am always asking for something free. Free is for me!! As my mother would say. I am not pushy, I just like to get extra things!!

We got there on Saturday afternoon after a very eventful camping trip with some co workers, that included me falling into a stream! Scratch that, falling into a rushing rapid!! Anyway, after two weekends of camping, I was ready for a nice hotel.

Once we did get down there, Doug was the person to check us in. I asked Doug if there was anyway he could upgrade us since it was our anniversary and we loved the Hilton so much. He said he would see what he could do. He was able to upgrade our room to a suite and even gave us free parking which saved us $26!! We loved Doug!

As we headed up to the room, Chris figured he just told us he upgraded the room but really didn't. We open the door and the room is huge!! Rather the ROOMS are huge!! There is a bedroom, living room and study! (See pictures for more details.)

We had the perfect weekend of napping, watching television, swimming, suanaing, if that is a word, and it was wonderful! It was nice to just relax and be with each other. Our lives have been really hectic so this was the perfect getaway. I am so glad I have Chris. He is working so hard for us and I appreciate all the he does for me. He always knows how to make me smile!
