Yesterday Andrew and I celebrated our one-year anniversary.
It’s a little hard to believe that it’s been an entire year since our wedding, but Andrew has had my heart for so long that it also feels like it should be longer!
I woke up with morning to sunflowers on the kitchen island (if you don’t remember, we used sunflowers at our wedding) as well as Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One, and a small bag of Sour Patch Kids, which are my favorite candy. He knows me so well!
My grandma has not been doing very well, so I spent last weekend visiting her and the rest of my dad’s family in Pennsylvania. My gift arrived a bit late since I was out of town, but it arrived today so I’m excited to give it to him once he gets home from work. I bought this scratch-off map for him, since we both love to travel. We can scratch off all the countries and states that we’ve been to together and hang it on the wall, so I thought it would be a great gift. Plus it’s paper, which is the traditional first anniversary gift. I get extra points for that, right?
We normally probably would have celebrated with a nice dinner somewhere over the weekend, but ended up changing plans since I was going to be out of town. Our friend had bought tickets to the Cardinals game (St. Louis’s baseball team) and gifted them to us as an anniversary present, so we spent our evening with the Cards. We took the MetroLink downtown instead of driving, since traffic is always so terrible on game nights.
We shared a soft pretzel and some nachos during the game (ball park food is my favorite!), but the game itself was a bit boring. They had several good hits, but we were down from the second inning on. We decided to leave after the 8th inning since the score was still 0-4. I normally never leave the game early, especially since the Cardinals are notorious for coming back late in the game, but Andrew had to work in the morning and we were both a bit tired. And the Metro is always so packed after games, it takes forever to get home. So we decided to leave a bit early to get on the MetroLink before some of the crowd.
On the ride back, someone was streaming the rest of the game and next thing I know, bases are loaded and they end up winning the game, 5-4.
The one time we leave early. Figures.
Regardless, we had a really fun time, especially since it was the first game we’ve both been to this season! And we can say that they won on our anniversary, even if we didn’t see it, haha.
We did forget to eat our wedding cake when we got home though. We were so tired we just went straight to bed, so we are going to try a piece tonight after dinner and hope it doesn’t taste absolutely terrible.
