Anniversary Recap

So yes our 1st Wedding Anniversary was May 21st. 
But I was on my blogging break so here is a recap better late than never :)

We started the morning off to a homemade breakfast
Andrew made us Waffles and they were delicious!!

Next was my surprise for the day. 
The Tradition for a a 1st anniversary is paper
Andrew got us tickets to Wicked (See post about that here)
My surprise was a Gift Certificate to receive a couples massage
We did the 90 minute massage with a touch of stone and it was heavenly.
If you live in the Raleigh Area I would check this place out

Later that night we were off to dinner.
6 years ago when Andrew and I started dating our first date was to Firebirds. 
We have kept it a tradition to go for our anniversary ever since.

Starter: Lobster Spinach Queso

Andrew's Entree: Crab Stuff Fillet with Fries

My Entree: Sesame Encrusted Salmon with Aioli, mashed potatoes and green beans

Us on our Anniversary :)

We skipped a very common tradition which was to save our anniversary topper.
I am really weird about leftovers and keeping things a day past expiration or sell by so there was no way I could eat a year old cake
I went to a local bakery 

and took them a picture of our actual wedding cake and asked them to make a topper.

This is what they came up with

It was beautiful.
So we broke out our cake set and were ready to go

It was delicious and was very close to the flavors we had in our actual wedding cake.
We had a great anniversary and cant wait to celebrate at least 50 more!!!


  1. I love that pink and white dress! It is beautiful!

  2. Love that you both had a great 1 year anniversary...and you are right, it is never too late to share it with us! :) Glad the cake worked well too!

  3. Such a smart idea to have them make a topper - I will need to do this, as we didn't save our topper either!

  4. Congrats on one year! I love that you had a cake topper made. Blue Moon bakery is one of my favorites! My family uses them a lot of our cakes!

  5. OH MY GOSH - we love Firebird's! And a must order there for us is the lobster queso! Every time! I am craving it so badly now!! Happy anniversary to you :)

  6. Congratulations on your anniversary!!! Zac and I just celebrated our 2nd and it was a blast :) that is so funny on you not eating your 1 year old cake cause my husband is also very weary of eating expired food! I definitely ate the cake a year after, but it was not nearly as good :( so glad you became a follower, and please let me know if you have any questions about teaching, I'm a middle school as well... Have a great weekend! Cat
