As many of you know, this past weekend was our anniversary weekend (hence the title lol)! It was our very first wedding anniversary ♥
In light of this, J and I took Friday off from work to spend 3 days together. We had such a fabulous time!
On Friday, we woke up and had a few errands/business things to take care of before getting into anything fun. After we did that, we went out to Christina's and had lunch with her -- she LOVES Chick-fil-a and since she hadn't had a stellar week, we surprised her =)
Afterwards, J and I made the trip to Plant City for the Florida Strawberry Festival -- we had an amazing time! Talk about eating your way through a few hours!! SHEESH! haha =)
If you are ever in the area for this festival -- you HAVE to try a doughnut burger!
Saturday, we went to the movies and saw The Adjustment Bureau and LOVED it.
The premise of the movie was very different from what we expected. It was definitely worth seeing in theatres and I think Matt Damon is a great actor =)
Saturday night, Marc and Christy hosted a surprise birthday party for Christy's mom -- so we went out there where I enjoyed several margarita's. You should definitely try the Chi Chi's premixed margarita over ice. Oh, My. GOSH! They were SO good!
Most of our group was there -- we all had lots of fun and plenty of laughs!
Sunday we just hung out for most of the day. We spent a lot of time together, talking and laughing, and cuddling (of course!). We had dinner reservations for 7 at our favorite steakhouse.
After dinner, we stopped for ice cream (that we didn't need lol) at Marble Slab Creamery -- which is very different from Cold Stone, thank you very much =)
When we got home, we watched our wedding video and got emotional all over again. We also stuck to the tradition of eating at least a BITE of our year old wedding cake. My parents did a very nice job storing it in the freezer -- it wasn't freezer burnt AT ALL! =)
If I gave you a bite of the cake, you would know it wasn't freshly made but you would enjoy it and have no idea it was a year old =) I may even have some tonight after dinner haha!
Happy First Wedding Anniversary (plus one day) to us! I am looking forward to many many more celebrations together!
You know -- they say the first year is the hardest. We definitely dealt with some struggles -- not necessarily in our relationship, but in just dealing with everything else and truly adjusting to one another and the idea that we are each other's person. period. It hasn't been a cake walk but we have had a lot of fun (for the most part) getting through the first year. I can't wait to see what the second year brings.
