Anniversary Weekend

Last week was mine and Juan's 2nd wedding anniversary! We weren't really planning on doing anything special this year, just going out to eat and let that be it this year. Those plans ended up getting changed into a weekend away in Nashville due to the fact that we decided we NEEDED the time together away from all distractions here at the house (the internet, games, cleaning, crafting, etc.).
Our Saturday began with a little Putt-Putt at Grand Ole' Golf in Opryland:
Juan beat me as he always does anytime we play, but one day I plan on this trend changing!

That night we decided to just relax and not really plan too much. We did go to dinner at Carabba's at The Mall at Green Hills and it was just as good as I remember! Yumm-O!!!

I found a new hotel in downtown Nashville for us to stay at called The Hutton Hotel. Here are a few pictures of our room (the bed and the vanity in the bathroom):

It was FABULOUS! We both said that we would stay there again if we decided to do another special night away from home for our anniversary next year or something. It was the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed at myself. It was a little pricey at about $160/night plus parking, but was worth every bit of it! The shower had a rain shower head that was absolutely wonderful and made me not want to get out!

Sunday morning we ate breakfast downstairs at the 1808 Grille and it was wonderful as well! Then we packed up and headed back over to the Opryland area and went to see Night At the Museum 2 at the IMAX theater. It wasn't in 3D, but it was still pretty cool to watch it on the huge screen! As we were driving back home to Cookeville after that we decided we would take a small detour and go see another movie at our local theater because we weren't ready for our weekend to end just yet. The 2nd movie of the day was Terminator Salvation. Both movies were GREAT and were so much fun to see together!

We did not want our weekend to end because we knew that it meant going back to work and going back to the schedule that we hate of not seeing much of each other. But we are thankful that we were able to spend an amazing weekend together celebrating two years of marriage!

Congratulations on another year. I can't believe it's been two years since your wedding. It seems like yesterday.

Cute cards below too!
