Yesterday, Jake & I had a great day celebrating our one year anniversary! It's hard to believe I've been able to spend the past year with my best friend, and one of the most wonderful people I've ever met. I am so lucky.
Jake drove a few hours to my house and arrived about 12:30. We were so excited, we decided to exchange our anniversary gifts first thing and Jake suggested I open mine first. No objections from me! He then handed me a card that had a web address on it. I was a little confused at first, because that's all that was written on the card. I grabbed my computer and typed in the address. It took me to a blog that Jake had put together as my real "card." The blog was complete with a background, header, and a single post titled "Happy Anniversary." He hit the nail on the head with this one! I was so impressed. Inside the post were a few things that rhymed, inside jokes and pictures of different parts of our relationship. Each portion signaled a different part of the gift that he had for me:
-Pink Tulips (Like the first flowers Jake ever sent me)
-A Panera gift card (Because I need to eat breakfast more)
-A new Hello Kitty watch (So I can always be on time)
-A year subscription to Brides Magazine (So I'm full of ideas when I work at the wedding company this summer)
-A new blog design of my choosing (To look good when sharing my ideas)
-A romantic outing of my choice in Charleston, SC, when we go for Jake's Formal in 11 days (To make new memories together)
I don't say these things to brag in anyway, I was simply amazed at how well Jake knows me. Babe, you really are the best. It's also crazy to me how alike we think because as Jake's gift, I also planned on footing the bill for an outing in Charleston. I guess we both value great food and great memories.
All I've got to say is, double the fun!
We decided to have lunch at this little place called Dairi-O, about 15 minutes from my house. They have amazing hot dogs, hamburgers, fries & ice cream. If you know Jake and me, you know that's right up our ally! We love good-tasting, not-so-healthy food and Dairi-O hit the spot! I had a hot dog and cheese fries, yummy! Jake got a Cheeseburger Pita.
At that point, we were closer to the nearest movie theatre than we were to my house, so we decided to go see the movie I've been waiting to see for so long!
This was my first time going to see a movie after reading the book and it was a very different experience. I really enjoyed the movie though and I can't wait for the next one to come out!
Jake & I drove back home to rest for a while and then went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse with my family. Being a Monday night, we didn't have to wait long at all and were out by 8pm.
I am so thankful for such a wonderful day & anniversary!
