Today is our first anniversary! I can hardly believe it’s been a whole year already… and what a crazy year it’s been. If someone would have told me last year where I would be now, I would have told them they were delusional. I hate to sound cheesy, but our wedding day was perfect. The weather in MI in April can be 80/muggy or 30/blizzard… it’s highly unpredictable. The weather on our wedding day was low 70’s and full sun with a slight breeze. It literally could not have been better. The next day, it was 40 and raining, for reals. Everything went exactly how I meticulously scheduled and planned. My only complaint? It went by way too fast. 😦 Sometimes it’s hard not to be sad that it’s all over!! Anyway, I thought I would share a couple pictures!
Ok, enough of that! Here’s what Wayne got me… Passion Roses! I’ve never seen roses like this… red on the inside and pinkish/white on the outside. They almost look like paper, no?
Yesterday, we went to the new Target Stadium to see the Twins play. I’m really not a baseball fan, but I was down to go anyway. It was nice to get out, get some fresh air (along with a one-sided sunburn…), and hang out with the hubs. We we starving afterwards and of course ate at Buffalo Wild Wings. I swear Wayne would eat there every night if he could.
For our actual anniversary day, I decided to re-create our wedding night dinner: Chicken Marsala (We had prime rib too, but I’m not about to whip up one of those!), cheesy potatoes, green beans, champagne, and CAAAKE!!!
If you want details on the changes I made to the recipes or anything, let me know!
The chicken and potatoes turned out AWESOME! This was my first time cooking with wine, so I was a little apprehensive, but it was soooo, SOOO good! The potatoes were crusty and cheesy and almost as good as the ones at our wedding. As for the cake, I was expecting a dry, freezer-burned brick. After a whole year of being in 3 different freezers/houses and surviving a 10.5 hour drive in a cooler, the cake tasted EXACTLY like it did on the wedding day! I kid you not, it was super moist, fresh, and absolutely delicious!! I was shocked but definitely pleased. In case you wanna know our cake packing process, here’s what my mom did with our cake: wrap cake in 2-3 layers of saran wrap, then place in zip-lock freezer bag, then wrap in 2-3 layers of heavy aluminum foil. Worked like a charm! And after this monster post, I’m OUT!
