Sunday, June 26, 2011 was our 1st wedding anniversary! YAHOO! We made it, Babe.
And you’ll have to pardon me for not blogging until today, but you know, there were better things to do…like baseball and eating!
He won the award for the best trick, hiding in a basket when asked if he wanted to take a bath. I do the same thing when it’s free weight day.
All-in-all it was a great game and I got an amazing farmer’s tan from sitting along the third base line. But the most important thing was to get to the second part of our celebration: a night at the Lexington Hotel.
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! It’s only about 20 minutes from downtown Lansing, but both Dear Hubby and I agreed with my parents that staying under the same roof on our 1st anniversary might be a little…well, so that’s the quick and dirty explanation of why my parents bought us a one-night stay here.
But we weren’t the only ones celebrating a huge event on the 26th. Guess who came to town??
The majority of the folks staying at the Lexington last night were going to the concert, and there was a special set of rules for attending. I mean, Bono is a holy entity and one must prepare themselves before being in his mighty presence.
Dear Hubby and I got the heck out of U2 dodge and found our way to our room.
We were booked under the “Passions” package -
imagine…being served Dinner for Two by the glow of candlelight. You choose either the intimacy of your guest-room or a secluded table at Christie’s Bistro. We’ve also included a bottle of custom Lexington wine from Black Star Farms to finish your evening. (Ask about additional options, like booking a couples massage on-site!)
And we took full advantage!
A special surprise was that our cake and champagne goblets from our wedding were in our rooms waiting for us. After several tries with an old fashioned bottle opener, we cracked the white wine open and toasted our first year of marriage.
Dinner was ordered and while we waited, we opened our gifts for each other. I booked a couple’s massage for Dear Hubby and I, so I did the classy thing of putting cash in his anniversary card.
And when I opened my gift, so sweet and thoughtful, I was totally blown away at the thoughtfulness of it. Dear Hubby kept in mind that the theme of the first anniversary is paper, and ordered the front cover of the New York Times from the date of our wedding.
My Dear Hubby is the best. Awwww =).
Enough of that. AND THEN WE DINED!
Dear Hubby went light too and got a Philly Cheesesteak and fries. But that was just a little snack to tide us over for our wedding cake. And man did we make our mark on that poor cream cheese filling, white, two layered plate of delicious.
And yes, we WERE eating it on the king sized bed. At least we didn’t get carried away.
Happy Anniversary, Dear Hubby! Looking forward to many, many more
pieces of cake years.
