So, it was my 1 year anniversary last weekend and my husband did a really good job on my gift. That sparked a conversation with my father. He will be celebrating his 31st wedding anniversary with my dearest mother on May 6th. Their modern gift idea is a timepiece. Well that sparked an idea in my husbands head. He said that he was originally going to get me a sundial, but we don't have the space or a garden to put it in. Well, my parents certainly do. So, dad and I went on an internet hunt for cool ones today... we found this one and we LOVE it!!

isn't it so perfect? The inscription just works out lovely!!!

 

So anyways, I just thought I'd share because it would also work for a one year gift and I seriously think it's adorable!

Hmmm... I have no idea how your posts are before mine... I'm going to say witch craft.

 

As for what Shawn got me, I will try and remember to take a picture. It's a round crystal thing with a clock face imbedded in it. And then he has it inscribed with "Year 1 of forever. 4-11-2009"

It's really beautiful and I love it!

I got Will "tickets" which was paper, we went to a red sox game. I have to start thinking about year two because we won't be together for our anniversary.

 

 

and this whole posts being out of order thing is really strange, its happening more and more lately.

Is returning to the location of your DW possible? Or what about a weekend getaway? What about a spa date?

 

Next month we are returning to Jamaica with family & friends who were there with us for the wedding & we will celebrate our 1 year anniversary then.

 

Since we knew we weren't going back to Jamaica until June, we took advantage of a great sale & booked a cruise that sailed 1 week before our anniversary.

 

On the actual day of our anniversary, I surprised DH & booked us a couples massage at a spa. I figured a couples massage would be a great treat for both of us.

After our massage we were able to lounge around the spa & enjoy their sauna's/steam rooms & hot tubs. It was a very relaxing & quiet day. After that we went to lunch & that was about it.

 

What exactly did you have in mind & are you trying to surprise DW or are you both planning this together?

 

Okay, I'm editing this cuz I just looked & saw that you were married in Cancun so I'm thinking that a return to MX wouldn't be on your agenda right now due to the swine flu scare.

But a trip someplace else you guys always wanted to go would also be a great surprise, even if its just for the weekend.

Well we would of LOVED to go back to Jamaica but that was not financially feasible for us. So instead we went to a super fancy restaurant together and it was super romantic. And then we got TATTOOS. I posted my tattoo in the other thread. But we did something to remember our wedding. The coordinates to the beach we married on. Not super extravagant anniversary but something I'll always remember. We hope to go back to Jamaica for anniversary's but for now we just did something small.

I decided to google this & these ideas came up. Hopefully they are not too corny for you!

How cute, personalized M&M's! I would never have thought of that idea for an anniversary:

Anyway, I hope that these helped in some way since I couldn't think of anything else more creative!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
