My 1st Anniversary Weekend!

As most of you know, Ryan & I celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend, and it was a WONDERFUL weekend!! Here's the recap:

Starting Friday, Ryan told me "don't plan anything". I knew that meant he was. My mind immediately started going in a million directions. So, I asked him later what kind of outfit I needed. He told me jeans, nice shirt and nice shoes. Ok. Cool. Then, several hours later he also tells me I'm going to need comfy clothes. What? Now I'm thrown. Now, sometimes Ryan does this. When he's planning a surprise for me he likes to throw me off. Like, when we got engaged he was down right MEAN to me the whole week before he popped the question because he didn't want any part of me to suspect he was days away from asking me to be his wife.

Moving on to Saturday, I babysat for Holly's 3 boys and Shauna's son from 6:30am until around noon while they went to a BurbMom event at Texas Motor Speedway. So, I headed home and Ryan was here waiting, with my gift. [Luckily,I had his too.] We decide to open presents then. Wow, did my husband out-do himself! He got me the most beautiful necklace!!!! Here is a blurry picture...

So then, Ryan tells me I need to pack a bag. I am super excited at this point. He won't tell me anything more than that. So, I hurriedly pack a bag and pretty myself up and we head out. He then tells me that my generous in-laws have booked us a room at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas!! And that he is taking me to Gloria's [one of my all time favorite restaurants] for dinner! The hotel was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Dinner was DELICIOUS! And after dinner he took me to my new favorite place, Eatzi's, to grab some dessert. We got champagne and 3 mini desserts, Pots de Creme, cheesecake and cannoli, to take back to the hotel.


[By the way, that's Ryan's new watch, his anniversary gift from me, on the table!]
It was an amazing night, and the cherry on top was the amazing view we had of Dallas from our room. This picture is blurry too...

And just for fun, a trip down wedding memory lane...a few of my favorite wedding pictures!
