Wedding Wednesday: Our First Anniversary!

Kevin and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary on Sunday.  I can't believe that a year has gone by already!

We didn't do anything big, but we had a great day spending time together.  We actually exchanged gifts on Friday, because Kevin can't keep a secret/surprise long enough to wait until our actual anniversary haha.  I told Kevin I wanted to do the "traditional" anniversary gifts, so the first year's theme is paper.  I got Kevin a card I created from Treat.  He was surprised to see such a custom card.  He actually saw the back first, and said, "hey, that's our picture on there!"  I love how I was able to customize the card to our first anniversary.  Treat cards are perfect for any special occasion, such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc, and  I will definitely be making more of them in the future.  For the paper gift, I got Kevin tickets to see Kevin James perform.  Kevin got me a card that was totally us, the next book in the James Patterson serious that I read, and an itunes giftcard.  He did good :)

On our anniversary, we went to the movies and saw Neighbors.  I thought it was just ok.  It had some funny parts, but something I'd rather rent than go to the theater to see.  Then we headed to dinner at Great Lakes Shipping Co.  Our food was really good and the service was really fast, which was great because we were hungry!  

My Lobster Mac & Cheese.
Lobster Cakes for appetizer.
Kevin's prime rib and twice baked potato.
After dinner, we headed home and went for a walk with Admiral before cutting in to our cake topper from our wedding.  The cake tasted kind of had a weird aftertaste, but nothing that stopped us from each eating a piece :)

I'm so happy that I got to marry such a great person, and I can't wait to spend many more happy years together!

Thanks Treat for such a beautiful card to celebrate our first anniversary!
