One Year!

It's crazy to say, but last Monday was our one year anniversary! This past year has flown by. We were talking the other night thinking about all the things we've done in this year and we've stayed BUSY! From getting married, going on a honeymoon, moving to KY, Utah for my sister Jess's wedding, Louisiana for Christmas, and going on a trip to the Dominican Republic (I'll be posting about that soon), and normal life between all of that, we've had quite a year! I absolutely love being married and am so excited to spend forever with Billy! 

To celebrate our anniversary we decided to take a little trip up to Cincinnati. It's only about a two hour drive, so it's the perfect overnight getaway! Billy and I both took Friday off of work and headed out...

We made our first stop for some lunch at Cane's! I LOVE Cane's and it reminds me of home. It's funny because Billy was thinking of stopping for lunch and at first I said I wasn't hungry yet. But once he mentioned Cane's, I had to have some :) 

We made our drive and did some shopping at the Gap Clearance store. It is wonderful! I think I mentioned this store in a previous post, but it is where all the Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic returns and damaged items get sent and are sold for CHEAP. We were probably in there for 3 hours, and could've stayed longer. You have to search and there are so many clothes, but we both found some great deals! I also got a few things for my sister Liza's baby. I probably had more fun shopping for her than I did for myself!

That night we ate at this place called Buckhead. It was right by our hotel and the large windows overlooked the river and the bright city. It was a cool view and the food was delicious!

The next day we went to the zoo. We've been wanting to go for a little while now and we loved it! We woke up that morning to some cold and wet weather. Luckily, I bought two jackets from the Gap Store the day before and they saved me!  

This picture is a shout out to my dad. He loves plants and thought he would enjoy these beauties :)

Giraffes are probably one of my favorites. I don't know why, but I love seeing them and we showed up just in time to feed them!

In the zoo there is also a 4D movie theater. The movies are only about 10 minutes, but we thought it was pretty cool. We saw Planet Earth and it was the arctic segment, so there was cold wind blowing around our feet and a little squirt of water at one point. It kept you on edge and entertained the whole time! 

We also LOVED the cougars! They would come right up to the glass and looked like they just wanted to play. Billy was giving it some lovin...

We ended to day by getting some Cincinnati chili on the way home. Cincinnati is known for this chili that has cinnamon in it and they serve it over noodles with lots of cheese. It was kind of like spaghetti. It was tasty and was a perfect warm comfort food after being outside in the cold weather all day.
