I can not believe that it has been 5 years since Mason and I have been married. It honestly feels like yesterday. We have come so far in our relationship. As I've mentioned before my mom likes to follow the tradition of giving us a gift with the corresponding symbol for that number of year. This year it was wood. She gave us each a set of chopsticks with our names and anniversary date carved in.
The symbol of the fifth anniversary is wood representing strength and a solidified relationship.
I feel as though wood is a good representation of our relationship at this time. Our relationship has changed over the year and has really solidified as Boone has been growing up and Mason's job has been stressful. I feel as though we've really grow together and become each other's support system. I'm lucky to have him as a best friend. He is such a good guy and I know he loves me. For that, I'm thankful.
A couple months back I found this amazing deal where you get a nights stay at Bally's in Las Vegas plus two dinner buffet passes to 3 buffets of your choice for $50. Talk about a steal! So I bought two of those for us to use on our anniversary being I feel like the 5th one is a big deal.
When we arrived Mason dropped me off to check in and I went to the front desk while he parked. I was talking to the lady and asked her how much the suites were that had the hot tubs in them. She said they would be about $60 more dollars and so I told her not to worry about it. She then asked if it was our babymoon and I said yes - it kinda was. She then said, "I'll just give you the suite anyway." AWESOME!!! We totally got upgraded to this amazing jacuzzi tub suite for free including a view of the strip!! I surprised Mason with it once we got up there. It was GORGEOUS and we loved it!!! Check it out!

|Needless to say we were both pretty far off. I blotted out Mason's weight just in case he doesn't want the world seeing it - even though there are only like 4 of you who look at this anymore anyway.|
|Here is Mason before the show checking out the box to make sure there are no secret doors or hidden ways for Teller to get in. Somehow he still appeared in the box after the show had started without the box ever leaving the stage!!|
