Anniversary Ideas

My husband and I will be celebrating our four year wedding anniversary next month. Thinking back to how we celebrated out anniversary last year, I am not quite sure how I am going to top it. My husband blindfolded me and brought me to this beautiful set-up in the woods:

My husband truly pulled out all the stops and gave me one of the most romantic and memorable nights of my life, as we celebrated three years of married bliss. The original post from that special night can be found by clicking here.

He put a lot of time and thought in to a night that I will never forget, and I would love to give him the same this year.

I am in need of ideas, friends! I can't give you much of what I have already planned for this year's anniversary because my husband is a reader of my blog, but I can tell you that I am working on a special custom bakery request; just waiting to hear back to see if it can be done!

My friend is getting married this weekend, so naturally I am thinking back to our own wedding day and how lucky I am to have my husband, Nick, in my life. In knowing that we have a lot of weddings to attend this month, I'll try to keep the sappy love posts to a minimum!


Now, in keeping with my August trend, I can't forget to post the goals that I have set for this month.

August's Goals
  • Break out of the 230's (5 lbs. to go!)
  • Track calories for 6/7 days a week (Monday-Wednesday done!)
  • Exercise 4/7 days a week (Monday-Tuesday done!)
  • Drink 64 ounces of water daily (Monday-Wednesday done!)
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep a day (Monday-Wednesday done!)

Last night we had fish with green beans and corn for dinner. So far, I have done well with my dinners this week. 

I've been following my meal plan from earlier this week, which definitely helps my weight-loss efforts. So far, I have lost 3 pounds this week! I'm hoping to keep that loss over the weekend. It will be a challenge with the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night and the dinner at the wedding on Saturday, but I am not going to worry about it. Events will come and it's important to have fun and not stress about the food. 

My goal is to be able to lose weight while having a life. Sacrificing enough to get me to where I want to be, but not giving up everything to get there. I'm down about 35 pounds and I've been having the time of my life these past few years. So far, mission accomplished!


  1. Those are definitely good goals :) Sorry it took so long to comment on your blog! I can't wait to hear more about how your weight loss is going!

  2. How about arranging a couple's massage for the two of you to do together?
