Anniversary celebration

So yesterday was our anniversary. One whole year. Seems like longer, but I'm sure that's because we've actually been together for six years.

We woke up yesterday and decided to have our wedding cake for breakfast. Here it is before being cut:



It was surprisingly good for having sat in the freezer for a year. No freezer burn or anything. It DID taste kinda like it had some liqour in it, which it didn't last year, but it was still good. The only kinda yucky thing about it--and it wasn't even yucky, really--was that the cake itself was a little dry. But I'm tellin' ya, it was STILL better than most fresh wedding cake I've had. I think that's a testament to the incredible baker we had. Yummy, yummy.

Last night we had dinner at the Melting Pot. We don't usually go for chain restaurants, but I love fondue like crazy, and we enjoy the Melting Pot a great deal. I was a little sad I couldn't eat as much as I wanted to. I kept trying to convince Eli to move down so I'd have more room in my tummy for the deliciousness. He would not cooperate.

Josh gave me a gift for our "paper" anniversary. He's so sweet and romantic. Unlike him, I did not buy a gift because I'm lame and I didn't think we were exchanging gifts. I told him this and he insisted I not go out and buy him something because, he says, my gifts for him are always so awesome and he's trying to catch up. I think he's wrong about the awesomesness of his gifts for me. Check it out:



It's a do-it-yourself photo album from Paper Source! I'd been eyeing this for almost a year now. He picked out the paper and book tape for the project. He knows how much I love those colors. They're sort of our wedding colors. The photo album is to be for pictures of just the two of us and he wants us to pick the photos together. I told you he was romantic.

Happy Anniversary!

Our cake people told us our cake top wouldn't last a year. So we took it out at 6 months, and then forgot about it, and it got ruined. We've been married now almost 2 years, so it didnt bring any bad luck for not eating it! I guess that's just a myth!
