Top Ten Reasons I'm Excited for This Weekend

Google reader is the best! In my google reader this morning was a fun carnival about Top Tens put on at OhAmanda. So...since I'm just sitting here while my little girly dries off (she fell in the pond this morning, what a traumatic experience for a three month old puppy!!) I thought I would give you my Top Ten Reasons I'm super excited for this weekend:
  1. We finally get to get out of Dodge. We are headed to Colorado.
  2. Getting to spend time with my Grandma in Colorado, and doing our traditional Memorial Day trek with dinner at Zack's.
  3. Yellowstone here we come!! After a couple days in Colorado, we are driving further north to Yellowstone for a week. You see, it's our...
  4. 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! I'm so excited to celebrate one year with my wonderful bestfriend, my husband!
  5. Over 30 hours in a car: Laughing, reading, talking, sleeping. I'm super excited for our first long road trip together.
  6. Geysers, hot springs, hikes, picnics, enjoying nature. I'm super excited to see EVERYTHING we can in our 4 short days there.
  7. Eating the topper to our Wedding Cake. I hear it's usually pretty nasty after being frozen for a year, but I'm a traditionalist and I'm SUPER excited to eat it!
  8. Getting away just the two of us. With the new puppy keeping us up at night and having us clean up little pee-pee, it's going to be nice to be just us!
  9. Eating at Chipotle and Cheesecake Factory in Denver on the way home, hopefully!!
  10. Creating new memories!

Happy Anniversary! Have fun in CO - enjoy the tradition of the cake topper - ours was notsogood - maybe b/c it was frozen upside down in a slightly open box...hmmm :)

I love all your reasons ... excepts maybe #5 - I'm not too big on 3 hour car rides, much less 30!!! Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to you & your Sweetie! Ahhh I can barely remember ours!

I'm impressed that you're brave enough to eat your cake topper. I knew I wouldn't be able to stomach it so I don't even think we saved ours for the whole year. The thought of eating it made my tummy turn - ha ha

We LOVE going on road trips together too so ENJOY!! Sounds like you're off for a fun time together!! Blessings to you both!
