A week or so ago I posted asking for paper anniversary suggestions. Marissa R shared an Etsy link of a pic of a roll of first anniversary toilet paper. She remembered we had gotten engaged in the bathroom.

Also, considering Frank's colon cancer diagnosis, and the fact that he says I always blow smoke up his arse, I DIY my own first anniversary toilet paper.

We are getting out of Dodge Saturday morning. Our anniversary cake is on order and we have a bottle of champagne left. I can hardly wait.

    Thank you so much for your kind words ladies! It means a lot. I will not give him the present until after he opens the "real" present(a framed pic of us at Cate's RD with my vows to him on the back). I know the pic and vows will make my mushy old Italian tart cry. Yup, he is a big sentimental man. This way the TP will make him laugh.

    EDubbs, Have an awesome First Anniversary! We are hitting our venue to say hello to the owner and then hitting NH and ME. Enjoy DC! I still can't believe it has been a year.

    JJ...Happy Anniversary! How will you be celebrating?

    I made a scrapbook with 366 reasons why I love him (one for everyday of the leap year) with little gifts to go along with them. He's getting them a few pages at a time starting this morning. So far he's gotten gift card for gelato (mutual love of gelato), nuts (because I'm nuts about him), cinnamom bun (because he's got nice buns), and a 1st aid kit (don't ask.....!) We're going to NYC tomorrow to shop and have a nice dinner.

    I love that as soon as I logged in I saw your post. But then I got distracted by all the BS drama that's been going on. Gotta say, I kinda feel bad for the brides still planning their weddings....

    JJ....I love that idea! It is excellent. I would have never thought of something that creative. Enjoy your dinner and trip into the city. Re the drama...if I typed all I was thinking this post would be closed and locked. As long as we keep it positive and constructive it will be a great place for bride's to plan a wedding and support one another.

    Kelly...Thank you!

    Kasey c.....LMAO Well, that is the other reason he deserves the TP.

    Amy...Thank you too.
