FC: Our first year........
1: After our reception we stayed the night in our home. Mark bought every kind of chocolate a girl could dream of and had a huge bouquet of flowers and little red candles all around. We went to Jeremiahs the next morning for breakfast and then spent the rest of our honeymoon weekend at Zermatt Resort in Heber. We shopped in Park City, saw the movie Social Network, and relaxed. | Mark got the romance package at the resort. which included sparkling cider, bed turn down with rose petals, jacuzzi preparation, and romantic music. We headed up stairs after a really fancy dinner and as we walked in the room the romantic ambiance was a little tainted because the maid had tuned the radio to FM100 sounds of the sabbath and we were greeted with the hymn "Joseph Smith's first prayer".
2: OUR FIRST HOME
3: OUR FIRST CAR | 2009 Toyota Venza | These are some of the Dahlia's we planted, most of them flopped over because we didn't know to support them with stakes. In our first garden we grew tomatoes, cantaloupe, pumpkins, jalapenos, and way too much crook neck squash. | Our first furniture. We purchased was this bedroom set on our way to get our Christmas Tree on the day after Thanksgiving. We didn't receive the furniture until mid February! Darrel at Northern Comfort was our first enemy. If Mark would have been as persistent as he was we may have never received it. | 28000

20: Mark and I had discussed waiting a full year before starting a family. I had told him six months after we got married that I was worried it might take us a while to get pregnant and I was almost 30 so we better at least start trying in case it took us a long time. The next month I found out I was pregnant :) He wasn't able to come to the gender ultrasound with me, so I had the doctor write the gender down and fold it up. I gave the paper to Monica and she made a cake that would reveal the gender when we cut into it. When Mark got home from work we cut into the cake to find out it was a BOY!! I really thought it was a girl. We ate at Olive Garden that night to celebrate. | Bennet Mark Egan? Emmett Mark Egan? Clark Mark Egan?
21: You know you're in love when you can't sleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
