1ST Anniversary Post

The hubs and I celebrated our first married anniversary on October 17, 2010!

To celebrate, we decided to head to Pittsburgh, PA for the weekend, which is where we were ENGAGED in 2008.

We basically relived our engagement this past weekend:

1. We stayed at the Omni William Penn hotel again this time. We stayed there when we were engaged in 2008 and we were married at the Omni Shoreham hotel (in Washington, DC) one year later. We have a family connection to the Omni company so we were blessed with a sweet room, a bottle of champagne, and some chocolate covered strawberries (thanks daddy-o).

2. We also caught a Steelers game (just like we did when we were engaged)

I am a huge Steelers fan, so I had a blast at the game. It was the most perfect fall day in a very beautiful city.
The hubs even got into the excitement and wore some Steelers stuff...

He did make sure that he carried his Washington Redskins hoody around with him though (ha)

That's only about 2.5% of my Steelers gear-- but it's what I wore for the game.

3. Right before we got engaged we ate at my favorite chinese restaurant in Pittsburgh- Sesame Inn. Growing up we always ordered from the one in Mt. Lebonon (I'm from Upper St. Clair), but this time we went to the one in Station Square.

All in all it was the perfect anniversary weekend and a great new married tradition!
