Ours is coming up on Monday!

Considering I am now 5 days overdue with our bebe I don’t think we’ll really be “doing anything” BUT I do plan of making DH’s gift…… (we’ll probably celebrate in May)

I decided to take one of our wedding pics of him reading the “day of” letter I wrote to him, transferring it onto canvas, & also doing the same with the letter. =)

Hopefully it’ll come out looking something like this:

@cafegirl:  Thanks! I’m hoping not to share the date BUT if I do then I do… Darling Husband and I didn’t exactly think about our anniversary date when we started ttc. lol

I think your gift & date sound great! I could SO go for a couples massage right now! lol

And congrats to you too =)

I had mine in Feburary! That first year went by incredibly fast but was amazing! I got my husband 2 picture frames with maps of all the places we have been together as well as some stock. he got me tickets to see the Jersey Boys which was AWESOME! We took a long weekend and spent it in a cabin in Tennesee – it was really romantic and snowed all weekend. I still have my wedding cake in the freezer but we got lucky and our cake lady made us a new top tier for our anniversary! it was just as delicious as i remembered.

i could really go for a couples massage!

@runsyellowlites:  it was really easy! i just print screed places in mapquest (the colors matched our bedroom better than google maps haha) then i cropped them and moved them around in powerpoint till they looked right and printed them on heavy paper and found some nice frames at target. i was able to get roughly 6 – 8 maps per page if i scaled them to different sizes.

@totheislnds:  Do you have a pic? That sounds so great! If we traveled I might do something like that… but alas we’re home bodies. lol

@cafegirl:  hahaha yes! stock market. Disney stock actually because you can still get those on paper and it was cheaper than Coca cola (which he loves) and history showed disney stock as being the better buy – not that i plan on making any money on it haha it was only one share. It was my first time to TN – we went to Gatlinburg and I really enjoyed it! we did get to walk around downtown a little bit but it was super cold that weekend so we mostly stayed in the cabin or the hot tub haha. They have some really cute small 1 bedroom cabins.

 @runsyellowlites:  I don’t but i’ll take one at home! they are hanging on the wall so i’ll come back and post it after work. I’m totally a homebody when it comes to normal day to day life but i love going on little weekend trips here and there when we can swing it.

I LOVE the map idea too! i saw something on pinterest that you take a deck of cards and write 52 reasons why i love you on them. So i’m not sure what i’m going to do. We are going on a little getaway for ours. We are going to a spa place one day and the next 2 days are going to be down at the beach where we got engaged. So it will be a great time. I cant believe how fast it snuck up on us.

You ladies are awesome.  Our anniversary is coming up too and we aren’t really into exchanging gifts so we are going back to the city where we got married and having dinner at our rehearsal dinner restaurant.  I *did* get some new lingerie that I think he will view as a gift ๐Ÿ™‚ .
