Anniversary Date

Jonathan & I have both been sick this week.
Him with his allergies & me with my sinuses/asthma.
BUT, we weren't about to let that stop us from celebrating our anniversary :)

The original plan was dinner & a movie, but after dinner we both felt kinda yucky & decided it would be best to just to come home after dinner. So, we did. We cuddled up on the couch & watched The Voice and then the Grizzlies game. Here is a little glimpse of our anniversary date...
1-The most perfect anniversary card EVER. He knows me so well. :)
2-The beautiful bouquet he brought home for me.
3-Before our anniversary dinner at Bonefish Grille.
4-Our anniversary dessert. 
5-Cuddle time at home :)

Wondering why we didn't eat the top of our wedding cake? Well, we got married at the beginning of May and by the end of May we had already eaten it! haha No, I couldn't even wait a month to eat it! You ladies know how I LOVE cake. ;) So since we couldn't eat our wedding cake, we got the next best thing..Bonefish's Macadamia Nut Brownie. Always so yummy! 

Even though we're both sick, we had a lovely first anniversary. I'm excited for the many more to come :)

I always prefer cuddling and watching movies on the couch over a movie theater anyway :) What a fun night! Happy Tuesday sweet friend

This looks like so much fun! We didn't save the top of our cake either. I think I will just order a smaller version and get it shipped up here. Congratulations!

You guys are too cute! I love that you ate your top tier the same month of your wedding...sounds like something I would do:) Glad you guys had a fun night!

Pamela said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! Matt has stopped me from thawing our cake like 10x since our wedding. I cannot wait another 6 months to eat it!!!

Y'all are just too cute! I love that he didn't get you any boring old roses, but instead got you a bouquet of vibrant, fun colors:) Too funny that you couldn't keep out of the wedding cake. My mom wrapped ours and froze it the night of the wedding after we left for our honeymoon, giving me no chance to dig into it. She knew I wouldn't be able to resist either unless she took preemptive measures, lol!:)

Hope you both get to feeling better :)
Glad you were still able to enjoy a little night out to celebrate though!

I love that you couldn't wait to eat your wedding cake! Instead of a cake, we made our own S'mores cupcakes for the reception so we can have "wedding cake" for every anniversary now! It's kind of a fun tradition, plus they're basically the best cupcake in the entire world :)
Happy Anniversary!

Happy anniversary! We ate all of our cake after the wedding too. I knew it wouldn't taste the same a year later after sitting in the freezer. I paid so much for it too. I wanted to enjoy it!
