On the 26th, Nate and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary. For our first and second anniversary we have been surrounded by family, which makes it special, but not “anniversary” special… 😉
This year we spent Christmas in Oregon with Nate’s whole family – all 36.5 members. It was awesome, and because we are the youngest we were the ones that got to sleep on the floor in the sewing room. :-). It made for a lot of good jokes, and I was actually looking forward to joking in the future about sleeping on the floor for our anniversary, but I guess Nate had other plans.
He whisked me away to a “quick run to the grocery store” in the midst of the “B. Family Olympics” (which, by the way, our team won. of course) and took me to downtown Portland to the waterfront Marriott. FANCY. (And thanks Alan, for the friends and family passes )
I was very surprised, and admittedly a little disappointed at first because we were supposed to make strawberry dairquiris for everyone for dessert, and also because I had left laundry in the dryer and that is just SO rude.
I got over it pretty quickly though.
(cool — but not as cool as a romantic stroll along the Portland waterfront)
(which was literally very cool. and a little wet and rainy)
(but still very romantic)
We also ate dinner on a FLOATING restaurant.
Which was awesome.
Nate spoils me. He also is setting my anniversary expectations quite high.
Possibly not good. We will see.
Thanks for an awesome 3 years Nate!
And because this is really the only time I can get away with posting pictures of me in my pretty wedding dress….
I would like to thank:
Amyanne for making the10 batches of strawberry daiquiris it took for all family members to be satisfied,
Nate’s mom for finishing our laundry and not being mad that I left it in the washer,
Nate’s dad for digging through our bags to find our confirmation number since the hotel had our reservation under Nathan McBarney,
Glen and Kathryn for making the REAL quick trip to the grocery store.
And Nate for planning the best anniversary yet!
