I was hanging out on a beautiful Bahamian beach in a pretty white dress marrying an amazing guy.
And it looks like third time is the charm! This is the first anniversary we’ll spend together – in the same city on the actual day. It has always fallen on a weekday, and until our move to NYC last summer I worked a consulting job that usually required me to be out of town during the week.
So tonight, we’ll be doing some of this to celebrate!
We were truly blessed to have such an amazing turnout at our destination wedding. It’s a lot to ask of friends and family to travel to a foreign country and we were thrilled that so many of ours did! I know people may have varying opinions on destination weddings, but it was absolutely the right call for us. At the time, we were living in Ohio, while most of our friends were in California, and our families were in Washington and Illinois and…yeah, most of our guests were gonna be getting on a plane no matter what. So we decided that if we were going to ask people to travel, we might as well pick a somewhere fun!
And really, who doesn’t love a good dip in the Caribbean?
Happy three years, babe! Here’s to many more.

Today’s EAT: The culinary highlight of this special occasion? Oddly enough, will be a hamburger.
We have been talking about going to this place since we moved in. Muy excited.
(But what happened to our non-resolution anniversary wager? Well, the good news is that the hubs and I both met our stated goals! The bad news is that we are broke and can’t really afford a huge dinner splurge at the moment. More on the shape-up in a forthcoming post!)
Today’s DRINK: Guess what’s chillin’ in the fridge, waiting to be cracked open when the hubs gets home:
It’s nothing special, just a Trader Joe’s cheapie. I love any excuse to drink bubbles though!
Today’s RUN: Day off. Yeah, another one. I am just not feeling it today, so rest day it is. I’ve got a full weekend planned with a long run and a race though, so I don’t feel terrible about it!
Today’s QUESTION: Destination weddings – yay or nay? Fun excuse for a vacation or selfish extravagance? As I said, our wedding was perfect for us, and I don’t feel bad about it at all – but I have to wonder if we’d think twice about it today, with the economy down the tubes!
