Anniversary Celebration Recap {A Link Up}

I am linking up with Wifessionals for one last week to share in the First Year and Beyond series.  

{If you missed the last week's click here.}

This week's topic is an Anniversary Celebration Recap

Matt and I celebrated our first anniversary on November 26, 2011. 

{We are only 5 months away from our third anniversary!}

I blogged about our first anniversary in 2011, so if you want to skip you can go ahead and click here

But if you are patient, I shall recap right now. 

We had been living in Laie on the North Shore of Oahu for the past year and wanted to get out of our little town for our special day. We couldn't afford to go to a different island, so we opted for a mini-cation to Waikiki. 

We stayed here: 

{The Mona Surfrider} 

Where they gave us leis as we checked in. 

We hung out at the beach and looked at Diamond Head.

{Where we saw some awesome beach-goers.} 

We spent some time at the pool. 

{Where it got a little cold and rainy.} 

We had drinks by the pool. 

{Where we talked about our first year of marriage.} 

We went out to eat at our all time favorite restaurant: Roy's. 

{Where we stuffed our faces with delicious food.} 

We went back to the hotel and got in the comfy robes the hotel provided. 

{Where we took funny pictures.}

We toasted with Martinelli's.  

{Where we drank the whole bottle with no shame.} 

We had a great night! It was such a blessing to be able to have had a mini-cation in Waikiki. Matt and I figured we only get 1 one-year anniversary and we better celebrate with a bang. 

The next morning Matt and I ate at the hotel breakfast buffet, which was awesome, and treated ourselves to a couple's massage. It was a perfect end to our first year anniversary. 

And that's the recap of our one year anniversary. If you are curious about what we did on our second click here, and if you are wondering what we are going to do for our third... stay tuned! 

I am going to miss this series. I have enjoyed looking back on our first year and remembering all the great memories. Many thanks to Wifessionals and all the many other great bloggers for making this possible.
