One Year

Guest entry from Chris....

Hard to believe, but our one year anniversary was this past weekend. Since it fell on Super Bowl Sunday, we decided to re-enact our first date by going to dinner at McCormick and Schmick's in Bridgewater, and then going to see a movie on the Saturday night.

We caught the movie When In Rome. Meghan definitely liked it more than me. It is what it is! After dinner, we headed back to Morristown to hang out and watch a little tv before bed. Once the clock struck midnight, we exchanged anniversary gifts. I gave Meghan earrings from Tiffany's, and in return, she gave me a nice hardcover book of some of our engagement photos, and a Nintendo Wii. I definitely didn't expect that, so it was a very welcomed surprise. Now I just have to figure out which games to get, and which second controller to get. It will be fun to play the Wii on my big screen Samsung tv. I will probably have to remind people to put the strap around their wrists or else the controller will go flying through the tv like I've seen on some YouTube clips!

Sunday morning we woke up and headed over to Crate and Barrel to register for our wedding. We zipped around the store in an hour added a bunch of things to our registry. Their computer system seemed to have a meltdown and both our names and registry number was not showing up in the registry list, so they said they'd correct it in 24 hours. They gave us the infamous "Wow, we've never seen that before!" line. We then hit Macy's to check out some things for the registry, and then we headed over to my parents house to have lunch with them. Once we left their house, we hit the Short Hills mall to register at Pottery Barn and check out a few other stores, and then we ended our day by heading back to Meghan's parents house for the Super Bowl pre-game food and beverages.

As for the game, I was dreading a blowout once it was 10-0 Colts, and they posted a note on the screen that read "The biggest comeback ever in the Super Bowl is 10 points". Interestingly enough, the Colts barely did anything else for the rest of the game, and the Saints shocked them, 31-17. We had a fun time watching the game, and a little after the game ended, I headed back to Morristown to catch the new show Undercover Boss and then head to bed.

The end.
