Graduation was a success. Wish I could say the same for the pictures I took. I had more pictures with family, but apparently can't work a camera in bright sunlight so they didn't turn out so well. Whoops. Really need to learn the manual setting. It was great to see family that came down for this special day. So very proud of that husband of mine. One graduation down, one bar exam to go. Now if only I could stop tempting Tad to watch Breaking Bad with me so he can get some studying done. Not out of the woods yet!

Just a few polaroids from Saturday because why not? We got a late start to Austin because we were having too much fun celebrating the graduate with our families.We didn't have a ton of options for dinner at 10 p.m., but we were starving and East Side Pies was still open. You're probably thinking who eats a meal this size at that hour? We do. No shame in having an appetite over here. When we got there, I thought I was back in Portland. Austin East Side may as well be Portland Pearl District. We ordered the Guiche pizza with spinach, goat cheese, green chilies and sun-dried tomatoes. Yum. We topped it off with a Greek Salad and Garlic Knots. Back to the hotel we went. Pizza is always a perfect ending to a perfect day if you ask me.

We headed to Austin on Saturday after Tad's graduation. Woohoo! What a weekend. What better way to kick off our anniversary celebration on Sunday than with Tex-Mex at Hula Hut? There is always a long wait, but it is worth the wait every time! Please give me those shrimp enchiladas every year on our anniversary. I've also come to the realization Mexican restaurants will forever be crowded on this day. Sigh.
We wrapped it up on Sunday by eating a slice from the top tier of our wedding cake at the park. What can I say? We're superstitious. Speaking of which, "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder was actually playing at our wedding when we cut the cake. Coincidence? I think not.
The best part of the trip was the honeymoon suite. Little bit of an inside joke. If you see Tad around, just ask him to fill you in.

Being a newlywed with this man has been an amazing journey of love and self-discovery. It's funny how living with someone can bring things to light about yourself. I realized how much I really just don't cook, but I love to clean. I'm not completely undomesticated! Give me a little credit. I've also realized I married the most patient man on earth. He's definitely taught me a thing or two.
Still can't believe it has been a year since we said, "I Do" in front of our sweet family and friends. Time really does fly when you're having fun. Before we know it, we'll be celebrating our five year anniversary where I'm sure Tad will surprise me with a trip to Europe. Right, Tad? OK. Maybe for our six year. This year we'll be celebrating this happy day in Austin. Oh, and Happy Cinco De Mayo! We'll be celebrating this with everyone else too. Cue the mariachis.

Went on a fun trip to the zoo with the Pershall family a.k.a. zoo crew this week! Carter loves the zoo so they are regulars. Glad we got to tag along this time!
These leopards. Me oh my. They put on quite a show. See the one on the left? He was on the prowl. I'd love to post the next picture Tad snapped, but it might get reported. Such an animal that leopard!
How I love these beautiful nocturnal creatures.
Leaving the jungle. Until next time, Cameron Park Zoo!
