So last Saturday was Orion and I's one year anniversary. I can't believe it has been a year already! Time really does fly when you are having fun. Ok so the last year has not been totally fun... There was that two month span where Orion was jobless and we ALMOST moved in with his parents in FresNO. Ever since we got married I have been working like a man woman to finish my degree online and it has brought me to tears more times than I would like to admit. Oh yeah lets not forget our stupid car breaking down a billion times costly us over a thousand dollars to fix. I hate that car and we are hoping to buy a new one next month, one that actually is reliable and not an ex cop car.
Now on to the good stuff. To celebrate we started a couple weeks early. Orion got an X BOX 360, which he has been drooling over forever and two games for it. I was a little sad because he got his gift two weeks earlier and I got nothing. I know selfish right? Well on Wednesday we went to farmer's market. Oh how I love going! Orion bought me some lilies! A dozen for three bucks! What a steal!
Saturday morning was our actual anniversary and it was so much fun. In the morning we went for a hike in Montana de Oro where Orion proposed to me. It was really great. Before we got there we stopped in downtown SLO because Orion wanted to buy something for me. It was a surprise so I waited in the car till he came back. He brought back chocolate covered strawberries! I love those and the best part was he had another surprise for me that I got later. I got the surprise on our hike.
For dinner that night we went to Red Lobster because I LOVE seafood. Normally we would have done Sushi because we both love it, but we decided to do something different. It was delicious! I got lobster and shrimp while Orion got shrimp and steak. For dessert we had cheese cake. You know how some couples save the top of their wedding cake and eat it on their first anniversary? Well we had cheese cake for our wedding cake so we did not have a top layer. I bought Cheesecake Factory cheesecake from Costco to celebrate. It was the same kind of cheesecake we had at our reception. I even put our wedding topper on the cake.
