That sounds like so much fun, I love the zoo!

We stayed for a weekend at a B&B near where we got married. We couldn’t stay at the actual B&B we got married at b/c they’re not dog friendly and we wanted to bring our pup. There was a huge dog rescue event going on that weekend, and we went to the dog beach. It was a blast!

We were planning on dinner at the restaurant where we got married. I was planning on getting a cake (we already ate the top tier) and having it decorated similar to our cake (but I found another design that I loved, so I’m thinking of doing that instead). But our April trip to Japan was cancelled due to the earthquake. So it looks like we are rescheduling the trip over our anniversary. I’m hoping to get some pictures of us in traditional Japanese wedding attire.

 @bakerella: I was disappointed that we didn’t get e-pics done. Darling Husband is like yours, hates getting pictures taken. But recently he *finally* realize just how disappointed I was (I tried to not make a big deal about it) and said we could get post wedding pics done. But I’ve gained 20 lbs since the wedding (I call them happiness pounds) and there is no way I’m getting in front of the camera right now! πŸ™‚  So I think I will play that card to get some pregnancy or newborn baby pics.

We will be traveling through Asia for 6 months starting September 1st, so we will be in an ancient Chinese town for our first anniversary!

We’re going back to the spot I was proposed to. After that we are having dinner at the same restaurant we went to the night we got engaged. I plan on buying a short white dress so I can feel bridal again as well. I’m looking forward to sitting back and reflecting on these past two years from engagement to our 1 year anniversary and everything in between. It’s been quite a journey and I can’t wait to celebrate!

We will probably both be working since it is Labor Day weekend. Darling Husband had to fight to get time off last year, so we will probably be celebrating on a different day.

It will probably be something simple like dinner and a movie, though. = )

@KoiKove: Ya good point. I’m not nearly camera ready right now!!! I’m trying to get myself focussed on the idea of a bikini for our trip to Costa Rica in December. Eek!!

We’re going to get a room in the hotel where we stayed on our honeymoon and just have a nice, relaxing evening. Also, I’m baking a mini-cake for us. πŸ™‚

oh, and to answer the question, we are a long way off from our first anniversary, but we really want to take a week and head up to Maine for a week on the coast at a cozy B&B πŸ™‚

Just a couple more months as of today for us! Because we got married in the private room of a restaurant, we can now go back there for every anniversary (until it shuts down I suppose!). I’m ordering the same thing: Scallops in creamy vodka sauce, new york strip and tiramisu.

The rest of the evening is rated XXX, lol

Oh and I plan to get him this, and frame it.

We were planning on going for a long weekend to Santa Fe/Alb for the Balloon Fiesta and this awesome train tour in the mountains… but my Darling Husband broke his wrist and all the physical therapy bills from that ate into our anniversary fund. πŸ™ So it’ll just be dinner and cake this year. I’m hoping to be able to save and do another “big” trip back to Hawaii for our 5 year anniversary. Until then, nothing fancy unfortunately.
