Anniversary Plans

Our 1st wedding anniversary is coming up in just over 2 weeks and I am really excited! We finally have some plans that we both have agreed on! Our anniversary falls on a Sunday, so we figured we’d spend the weekend doing a few different things.

Friday night: Drive-in movie theater in Warwick, NY.  Not sure what we’ll see yet.

Saturday night: Dinner.

Sunday: Beach!!

I just didn’t want to spend our anniversary doing the things we normally do on weekends, like ironing, sitting around and watching tv, playing on the computer, etc.  For the next few years, our anniversary will fall during the work week, so we might as well do something fun on our anniversary this year since the next few will be spent at work!

I wasn’t quite able to get Kyle to agree on going away for the weekend (although he suggested a cruise.) The cruise, though, won’t work out with our schedules.  So we’ll spend our anniversary locally, but Kyle said that we can go on a cruise in February instead!  Also helps that we have enough credit card points to get a $400 gift card to Carnival, meaning one of us will be cruising for free!! The goal is to gather enough credits to get another $200 gift card before we book the cruise.

So excited! Great last few days!

So although the purpose of the blog is for “funny” stories, I’m going slightly off track for this post. 

The past few days have been awesome! It started out last Wednesday (March 31); it was the last day of school before Spring Break and also my and Kyle’s 10 years….dating anniversary, being a couple anniversary? Not sure what you want to call it now that we’re married and have a new anniversary.  It seemed weird not to celebrate March 31 considering we have since 2000, so we went out to Outback for a delicious meal.

On Friday afternoon Kyle and I drove up to Newton to meet with our photographer from our wedding to start the process of making a wedding album.  We chose the design, color, etc.  Since we got home, I’ve been going through all of our wedding pictures and deciding whic ones I NEED to have in our album.  It isn’t as difficult as I thought it would be.  The most difficult part is looking for a variety….making sure I get enough pictures of just us, me getting ready, our bridal party, family, etc.  So far, so good.  Hopefully by tomorrow night we’ll have all the pictures chosen and I can email our photographer and let her know we’re ready.  She said it’ll probably take about a week or two for her to design the album with the pictures we chose.  Once she’s finished, we’ll OK it and then send it onto the company who makes the album.  After then, we’ll have to wait about a month to a month and a half until the album is ours!!  Looking through our pictures have made me really miss our wedding day.  It was one of the best, if not the best, day of my life.  I loved being surrounded by our friends and family, wearing my dress, and becoming a wife. :-)

Kyle and I decided to look at kittens at PetSmart on Saturday afternoon.  We decided it was definitely time for a new kitty.  It has been just about 2 months since we had to put Elroy to sleep.  The apartment has been so quiet without him.   Now we have a beautiful 10 month old kitty named Pyper.  She immediately felt comfortable in our apartment.  She has explored EVERYWHERE! Pyper loves to eat, look out the windows, play and…did I mention eat?? Pyper began the first night sleeping on the recliner, and at some point during the night, came up to sleep with us.  Last night she was on the bed all night.  My track record hasn’t been great with cats, but I’m more hopeful about Pyper.  She seems like she’ll be around for a while.  :-) I thought it would take me a while to fall in love with Pyper, but it happened when we got home from my parents last night.  Kyle and I have taken so many pictures of Pyper in the last few days.  I can only imagine when we have kids (still a few years away!!) how many pictures we’ll take of them!

The latest great thing about the past few days is that we just bought tickets to see Bon Jovi and Train (Train is the opening act) in May! They are opening up the new Meadowlands Stadium.  I am beyond excited! I’ve seen Bon Jovi in concert once, but it was few years ago.  I am super excited to see Train…I’ve never seen them.  We are sitting so far away, but I don’t think it really matters for concerts.
