Instagram and Anniversaries

You know what it turns out is really fun? Anniversaries.

I mean, I spent my whole life celebrating other people’s anniversaries. My parents’ was always a big deal because my grandparents would send a giant box of gifts for everyone. Two of my brothers have been married for over a decade, and the other one is only a few years behind.

It’s kind of surreal having our own now. I mean, grown-ups have wedding anniversaries. And yet here we are.

Our actual anniversary isn’t until tomorrow, but the festivities kicked off this last weekend. (What can I say? It’s our first one. We’re excited. And considering the next “big” anniversary isn’t until like, five years, we’re taking advantage of this one.)

(Side note: As you may know, Android FINALLY got an Instagram app last week. Which means I’m jumping on the bandwagon of Instagram photo blog posts. Woooooo joining!)(Although now apparently Facebook bought it and people are wigging out…I prefer to wait and see what happens before I jump ship.)(ALSO, my username is justinelorelle if you care to follow me!)

First, Joey started strong with presents with these lovely earrings. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for Kate Spade, and I’ve pretty much been wearing these non-stop for the last week.

Saturday, I had a hair appointment bright and early at 9 a.m. Cons: NINE A.M HAIR APPOINTMENT. Pros: My hair looked awesome all day. Win some, lose some.

That night was Brittany’s party. We booked a room at a karaoke place in the city and basically screamed out lungs out all night. All in all, a successful party!

Present #2 from the hubs! What can I say? I love a piece of simple gold jewelry.

Present #3! (Boy is knocking it out of the park.) Tickets to Augustana!!!! Which, as you may recall, is one of my favorite bands.

And finally, Joey’s parents took us out to dinner last night and got us a delicious cake along with a few other presents. So many presents!

Kind of crazy considering the anniversary hasn’t even happened yet. I don’t know what we’re doing for the official day (Joey has all kinds of surprises up his sleeve apparently), but I’m sure I’ll be back with another Instagram update. (I’m mildly obsessed with it.)

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

  1. My weekend involved getting to be in charge of Easter, which you know I love party planning!

    I’m so excited for your anniversary – I keep telling everyone about how your wedding was the most BEAUTIFUL wedding I’d ever been to and how great your family and friends were to me that weekend.

    Sounds like you had an amazing weekend and I hope the special day tomorrow is great too!

    Love you!

    • Aww I’m so glad you had such a nice time! (And such a good weekend ;))

      Love you back!

  2. Happy almost anniversary!

    I’m going to show my husband this post tonight. Our anniversary won’t be until mid-September, but I’ve already started thinking about it and I want it to be pretty awesome. I’m thinking he should start doing some homework, too. đŸ™‚

    • Pinterest is the key! Now that Joey has the URL to my Pinterest profile, he knows what I want, but it’s still a surprise what he actually buys. It’s the perfect system đŸ˜‰

  3. This year went by sooo fast! Really! Happy happy happy first anniversary! Our card got dropped off at the post office at 7 this morning! Sorry it will be a little late! But you can celebrate a little longer! We love you both soooo much!
