What is that up there? Oh that is a delicious Hawaiian cake that I have been binge eating for the last two days in honor of my 1st wedding anniversary. Did we save the top tier of the cake at our wedding? No, we ate it. So I went and bought us a mini cake from the place we got our wedding cake (a bakery named Delicious by the way). It is delish and probably much better than if we had frozen the top layer last year.
So traditionally the gift for the first year of marriage is paper. So I got a lot of paper for my first anniversary. My husband has semi-secretly been making me my gift all week. He told me to keep my expectations low as Arts and Crafts are not his forte. We even went to Michael's together to get supplies (although he wouldn't let me see what he was buying). So what did he make me? He made me some frames with the readings/poem we had at our wedding and pictures from our wedding? I liked it. A lot. I made the number thing with photos I took of numbers at the beach (I might have stolen this idea from Shanzie.) That's the day we got married.
We also got some hand made paper wedding cards from L-Fab and Mo Young. Thanks guys!
And a special shout out to L-Fab for really pulling through and making us a DVD of all the wedding footage she took last year on her video camera. I didn't even know we had that. (Mo-it features the push up competition! Yeah there may or may not have been a push-up competition at the Rehearsal Dinner after party.)
Happy Anniversary B! Only 59 years to go until we get to the 'Diamond' anniversary. Can't wait!
If you are married did you give your husband paper for your first anniversary?
Do you like pineapple cake? (most people I know are not in to it)
Have you ever witnessed a push-up contest at a Rehearsal Dinner?
