Back when we were planning for our wedding I know we had some set reasons why January was going to be perfect but I cannot remember what was going through 2009/2010 Bailie’s mind! What I do know though that having a wedding anniversary a week before my husbands birthday has come with some challenges.
His birthday in 2011 was fine as we were on our honeymoon and so honeymoon + birthday + Las Vegas led to a very fun and drunk night. I have some really hilarious and not internet ok pictures of drunk Mr. H to remember it by!
Then on our first anniversary in 2012 we went to Brussels to celebrate and it was also great overlap as we basically just walked around looking at beautiful things, drank beer, and ate yummy food. Great for a birthday, anniversary, or really any day of the year!
However in 2013 there was no way we could get away with Mr. H’s school schedule and we could not really afford to go big for two nights a week apart and while we had a fun day for each they were both just a bit meh as well.
So this year we came up with birth-a-versary which we are going to do it up real big one night and have it cover both days rather than two semi good days! It works really well this year as there is a weekend right in between the days and Mr. H will be done with his paper and test by that weekend.
Our plan is to go out for nice dinner in town, like you need reservations nice and get all dressed up, and then have a drink after and we are going to each pick out some stuff we want online (probably from amazon.co.uk) and that will cover the present aspect.
I am super duper excited about this and now just have to be patient and mentally plan my outfit a million times (I am not the only one that does this right).
Now blogwise (which Emma said was a real word) I am thinking of doing some posts related to our engagement, wedding, and what not. If there is anything you are curious or wondering about regarding our relationship/marriage let me know and I will be sure to include a post on it as well as any specific questions for Mr. H as he said he would do a Q & A post for me!
