I’ve been reading thru some recent posts and feeling a little lost, I’m not on the baby bandwagon nor am I on the anti-baby. We’re still undecided…
So, here’s a fun post!
For our first year of marriage we are planning…
A trip to Florida in April to visit the Inlaws, my grandma and some family that weren’t able to make it to the wedding. We’re psyched to swim, lounge by the pool and maybe play some tennis.
For his birthday in May, (and our 6 month anniversary) I’m planning a trip to D.C. There is the evolution of video games at the Smithsonian and since he’s never been we’ll see the monuments as well. We’ll also meet up with a friend in Baltimore.
Summer is about apartment hunting, we will find our new home in a pet friendly building. After we move in September, we get to start looking for a fur baby that barks.
What are you planning this year?

Awesome thread! On the agenda so far we have:
Bought a treadmil and still putting it to great use 🙂
A trip to Memphis & Mississippi (next weekend actually) to celebrate my great grandmothers 100th birthday!
Our winter vacation trip to Ireland for 7 days in March
We will be doing some more painting in our house in the Spring (our bedroom, and dining room ceiling to be exact.)
This summer we are undecided on where we want to go for our summer vacation but it is either Brazil or India!
And we can’t wait till the fall because that means football & cooler weather after our brutal Texas summers! Plus our anniversary is in October & we will plan another domestic mini vacation to celebrate! 🙂

We’re also going on a week-long trip to Bonaire to go scuba diving.

We’re spending a week in Whistler for our anniversary in February 🙂 Snowboarding by day, hot-tubbing by night.
Video Games Live will be in Vancouver again sometime this year so we’re super excited for that.
And SHHHH, don’t tell him but I’m getting Darling Husband Cirque du Soleil tickets for his birthday. He’s wanted to go see one of their shows for forever, and Quidam will be in town this summer so I’m gonna make it happen!

- Wedding: September 2011 - Bent Creek Winery (Livermore, California); Reception: Family Residence (San Ramon, California)
We want to take some sort of vacation this year. We don’t know where or when yet, but we weren’t able to take a real honeymoon (major sad face), and the whole not having had a real vacation now that we’re married is really starting to get to us. If anyone has suggestions, I’d love to heart them. 🙂

@AnnieAAA: JEALOUS! I have Irish fever.
and awesome idea for a thread 🙂
- On the docket for 2012 are to continue using our new gym membership lots, so we can be the hot couple (lol)
- Become a first-time Aunt and Uncle sometime in the next couple weeks!
- Become favorite non-Aunt Aunt to my BFF’s baby also due very soon!
- A road trip to the spring Talladega NASCAR race that my Darling Husband got me tickets to for Christmas.
- A trip to our school to visit friends and attend the big spring school-wide festival
- Darling Husband wants to go to Six Flags this summer sometime.
- A trip to OH for one of my BM’s wedding in Oct.
- *Hopefully* a trip to Las Vegas this fall…..pushed back from about a month from now (sad!) due to DH’s awesome Christmas gift!
Possible apartment hunting…but hopefully doing a little house-hunting instead 🙂

Darling Husband just started a new job that he is loving (super excited for him) and I became a Stay-At-Home Wife.
Hope to have our land bought to build on by summer, though building may be put off til next spring. We just got a free architect (my awesome uncle) so that planning part is on the way. YAY!
Darling Husband is planning a trip for us, our delayed Honeymoon, but he will not tell me where. I assume it will be were we had originally wanted to Honeymoon, but he may surprise me with Europe which was our second choice.

Right now we have a wedding in Colonial Williamsburg Memorial Day weekend.
We are planning to go down to Georgia, to my ILs lake house, for at least one week over 4th of July.
And we are starting to think about what we want to do for our 2nd anniversary. We’re thinking possibly a weekend in Niagara Falls.

Ohhh good idea!
This year we are:
- Planning a trip to Napa Valley for our first year anniversary (can’t freaking wait!!!)
- Hoping to get bedroom furniture
- Carpet the hallway and steps
- I’m going to Los Angeles in April (without DH)..My best friend who was a Bridesmaid or Best Man lives there
- Forgot to add this one. My other best friend is getting married in September so that will defintiely keep me busy. We also have 2 other weddings for 2 close friends!
I love having to plan something other than a wedding! Although I do miss that sometimes :-/

We’re going back to Clearwater in May for our anniversary
We may rent a beach house in Rhode Island in August for my cousins wedding
We’re going to Chicago in October for the Miami-Notre Dame game
Then back to Florida again for Christmas/NYE, probably Miami for NYE
I start business school in a few weeks and Darling Husband starts a new job in March so trying to make plans has been annoying
We’re also reeeally hoping to move closer to NYC this summer (but stay on the Jersey side)
ETA: Oh and Darling Husband is convinced we are going to do a Tough Mudder in November

Ooo fun! i really like the idea of getting the newlyweds board going – theres a ton of us on here.
Let’s see –
(January) we just re-signed a year lease at our apartment, it will be up again next January so we may be house hunting in the later part of the year! Last weekend we did a weekend trip to Snowshoe WV with my brothers to do some snowboarding. Nothing else planned this month though.
(February) We will celebrate our 1 year anniversary! i’ve contact our cake lady and she is remaking our top teir for us! yay, i think we are going to try and go to Gatlinburg TN for a 3 day weekend. Myhusband will turn 27 a week after our anniversary! i’m at a loss as to what to plan or do for him haha.
My birthday is in May and usually falls around Memorial day weekend so we will try and get away for that probably charleston. We have ALWAYS done a week trip in Feb/March (out of the country) with our tax returns but this year i think we may push it out to the summer/fall since we have had so much going on the past couple months.
my husband was laid off at his company in october and luckily found a job right away but he hates it 🙁 poor guy. Lucky for us his father is starting a company and wants my husband to come work for him. More pay, closer to home, job security! things are looking up.
usually during the summer we take a few weekend trips to the beach. we are only 3 hours away so its great for weekends! My parents hooked us up, we have an awesome beach umbrella, two really nice beach chairs and a rolling cooler haha!
Gosh, other than that we dont have much going on

Hopefully get started on planning a cruise and also a trip to Europe

- Wedding: November 2011 - Florida Aquarium
We’re visiting family in Tampa in April; going ziplining in West Virginia in May; skydiving in November (first anniversary); and we’re planning a Christmas trip to the UK and France. I was in London for the holidays a few years ago and loved it!
It’s exciting not to be saving for a wedding haha!

@MrsDibs: Rando, but before/after the superbowl is a great time to buy a tv. Before because they run a ton of specials and after because everyone returns them and best buy has a ton of open box items.
