{ Our Weekend In Paradise }

Aloooha! This past weekend my parents and I hopped a jet to the North Shore of the beautiful island of Oahu. The purpose of this quick trip? To celebrate my little brother's 19th birthday and to be with him in the Laie LDS Temple as he received his endowment in preparation for his mission to Seoul Korea.

I think it pretty much goes without saying that the weekend was AMAZING! Well, all but the flight over there. But I'll save that story for another post. For now, just enjoy this little video montage I shot on my 8mm Vintage Camera iPhone app and edited via iMovie on the plane ride home. Kinda fun. Hope you like it.

{ Valentine's Day 2011 }

Two days later and I'm still reminiscing about the most wonderful Valentine's Day spent with my love! Believe it or not, it was actually my very first time having a Valentine. Usually my Dad feels bad for me and gets me a bouquet of flowers or something sweet, but this year I had Matt to do that for me. And wow did he get me the most beautiful flowers. Tulips - my favorite!!!

Matt had them delivered to my work which made it even more special. When the delivery guy came through the door he handed them to me and said "These are for Aubrey." To which my reply was "That's me!" With a smile he retorted, "I know." Haha! I melted. I was so excited these gorgeous tulips were for me! I'm such a lucky, lucky girl.

The rest of my Valentine's was wonderful. We enjoyed a 3-course meal at The Savannah Chop House where we enjoyed the most delicious filet-mignon and king crab legs followed by the most sweet and savory desserts! Then we topped off the night with a romantic dip in the hot tub where we were able to use part of my gift for Matt, some new beach towels!

All in all it was almost a perfect night....that is until his car broke down on his way back to Glendora. Oh BUMMER!!! Luckily we didn't let it ruin our wonderful night and just enjoyed the fact that we got to spend a little extra time together on our almost perfect Valentine's Day.

{ A Winter Sunset & A Wedding Update }

Last night while driving home from church, Matt and I made a little pit-stop at Salt Creek Beach to watch the gorgeous sunset over the Pacific. Of course I wanted to document the moment so I made Matt whip out his phone and snap a few pics of us and that beautiful sunset. Okay, so maybe you can't even see the sunset in the first picture, but the second proves that it was beautiful indeed! Oh how lovely are Southern California winters!

As for the WEDDING UPDATE: my custom wedding dress is almost done, the gorgeous letterpress invitations are almost ready to mail, the incredible decor is almost all constructed, Matt's beautiful house is almost ready for me to move in, and the long-awaited wedding day is almost here! Just 40 more days 'til I'm Mrs. Matt Laidlaw! OH I CAN'T WAIT!!!
