The Big ONE




The big one year anniversary is coming up this weekend. I can't believe how time flies. It seems like we just got married yesterday and everything was of course "picture perfect"!!!! What a beautiful day we had with all of our closest friends and family! We had big plans to head off to Vegas this year for our 1 year but things have changed. For many reasons we wont be going to Vegas but I will get into those details later. We are now trying to decide what to do?? We just want a little weekend get a way!!! We thought maybe Memphis, TN would be good because it is close and it a nice town just to visit. I love the idea of visiting Graceland again, eating out because memphis has fab places to eat, hitting the Zoo maybe and of course the great shopping. Memphis also has Beale Street with great nightlife and always a great time! We also thought of St.Louis for all the same reasons....Zoo, shopping and just a little get away. It doesn't take much to entertain Nathan and I..each others company is good enough. We don't want to spend a lot of money right now and these two destinations are close and cheap enough for us.
Monday is our actual anniversary so that night we will wine and dine and of course eat our wedding cake we have been saving for a year!!!!!!!! I am not sure if it will be good or not but the thought of it is all that matters.
I am also still searching for the perfect gift?? Still haven't found it though.

If anyone has any feedback on Memphis or St.louis or a gift I would greatly appreciate it!!!

This weekend is The Great Forest Park Balloon Race in St. Louis. It would be a really cool thing for you and your hubby to watch!

Ty and I ate our wedding cake topper back in May for our one year. It was great! I was very surprised! The cake was still pretty moist and the icing was amazing...I'm all about the buttercream!

I would do a weekend in St. Louis. Memphis just seems blah to me right now.

I don't have any good ideas about anniversary gifts. I wrote a letter to James on our one year (paper, traditional) and got him a nice watch (clock, modern).

Hi- you don't know me and I apologize but I found you through the "Organizing Junkie" and thought it was too much of a coinsidence that you are looking in St. Louis (where I live) and that we have the same Anniversary. My husband and I are also celebrating one year!

Anyway, the Zoo is PERFECT this time of year and right across the interstate is the Science Center. It's free to get in but some of the exhibits cost (IMAX, etc)and so does parking. Not bad though! Also right there by the Zoo is a cute lunch/dinner place call the Boat Dock. You can eat on the lake and also do paddle boats, canoes, etc. PLUS the Art Museum is right next to the Zoo. Quite a few things to do!

Well have fun, and just ask if you have any questions I might be able to help with about St. Louis!
