September 2007 - Our First Wedding Anniversary

We spent our first wedding anniversary in Carmel. We stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn which is right next to the Highlands Inn where we got married. We had a great room with an awesome view.







The first night we went to Roy's at Spanish Bay. We had been there before when we stayed at Pebble Beach. I love Roy's! One of these days I want to go back to Roy's and then sit by their outdoor fire pit and make s'mores.

The next day we had brunch at the California Cafe at the Highlands Inn. Us girls ate there for lunch the day before our wedding (to go of course). I think Rob and some of the guys ate there on the wedding day too. Then we went shopping in downtown Carmel and rode along the 17-mile drive. That night we had dinner at the Pacific Edge which is the restaurant in the Highlands Inn that catered our wedding.



After dinner we hung around in the lounge. They had great live music and Rob and I just sat and listened, and drank some yummy drinks before stumbling back to the Tickle Pink Inn.




This guy had a few too many.



The next day we went to the Rio Grill on our way home for lunch. This is where we had our rehearsal dinner.

It was a fun way to celebrate our first year of marriage by going back to the spots we were just the year before when we got married. I look forward to going back.

How did you spend your 1 year wedding anniversary?

Alyssa - this is such an awesome idea...it's so good I may have to steal it for my blog- wow, could I have flashbacks!:)

Gosh - first anniversary...Dad and I went to Rosie and Stan's who hosted our reception. We'd stored the top layer of our wedding cake in Rosie's freezer so we could thaw it and have it with Rosie and Stan on our anniversary. Sooooo...that night after Rosie made us a yummy dinner we PROBABLY played cards and then we all ate "cardboard cake" - nobody thought to remind us that the cardboard cake round found beneath the cake layer would flavor the top layer of "anniverary cake" with cardboard. Icky.

How sad, I can't remember what we did! I know I was prego with Lexxa and we were in FL...probably just went out to dinner or something. I have only been back to Cinnabar once since our wedding, I keep telling myself we need to go there for lunch or something!
