Anniversary Part 2 & Dinner

(Sorry in advanced if this is long)

I feel very loved today! I had a FANTASTIC anniversary, even though Josh couldn’t be here to spend it with me. My day started out with this gorgeous and HUGE bunch of flowers Josh sent me:

It contains some of my very favorite flowers including calla lilies, sunflowers, and thistle. Since I worked for a florist through the majority of my teenage years, I have a good idea of what I like and what I don’t and Josh did an AMAZING job.

We also got an awesome packet of goodies from Josh’s parents including the cutest bulldog t-shirt from jcrew (thank you for the heads up Erin!!), another t shirt that says Frank on it (enough said), some wonderful workout gear, and cute stuff for Josh too. Thank you thank you!


After work today, I relaxed, did some house work and reading, and then went out to teach Body Attack. I came home and had a slammin taco salad:


And some more cantaloupe:


Thank you all for the wonderful compliments on the first set of wedding pictures :) To answer your questions- 1. The wedding was held outside Philadelphia near the King of Prussia Mall and 2. Yes! Frankie was our ring bearer ;). Onto more wedding pics. We had our reception at the Desmond in Malvern, PA.


Josh and I were thrilled to finally RELAX and just be married. I changed dresses too (both of my dresses were inexpensive):

We had our first dance and some great eats...




And there was a LITTLE bit of drinking at our wedding...



Which led to...



oh and...


and dancing in a circle...


and all together just ridiculousness...


but mostly I just enjoyed a lot of time with Josh...


just a fabulous night...


Hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of our big day. Happy Anniversary again Joshers!

The best part of weddings is the party after! Dancing is mandatory :-) We went to one wedding where the dancing was a tiny afterthought, it's just not the same.

I love your idea to change dresses; a great way to make the event seem more luxurious.

I'm sorry you couldn't spend the day together, but it's about the rest of your life, not one day right?

Oh my gosh, everything is so beautiful. Beautiful flowers, beautiful eats, beautiful pictures. Erica, darling, you are breathtaking! Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories with everyone.

That is so cool that you were married in Philly. I know that you said you use to live around there. Does your family still live in PA? Do you ever come back to visit? Next time you find yourself in PA, we need to get together!!!
