I Need Your Help!

Our FIRST anniversary is in ONE WEEK.  One week exactly.  And as of this moment **right now**, we have approximately...


We don't have a thing planned.  Nothing.  Zip, nada, zilch.

It's not because we don't want to do anything -- no not that at all.

It's just that, well, we've been in the process of moving.  Oh, and Christmas shopping.  And celebrating.  And then celebrating again.  And then un-celebrating.  And then taking down decorations.  And then job searching.  And when it came time to take a breather and relax, we realized: 

We can't let our first anniversary go by without celebrating!!

Sure we could just go out to eat someplace nice but, sadly, that's not exactly something super exciting for us.  We often use "going out to a fancy restaurant" as a way for me to get out of cooking dinner reward for a tough week.  We're really open for most anything.  Cold weather doesn't dissuade us and we'd totally book a flight somewhere but the question is: 

It'd be for about 4 days (we're thinking Friday-Monday) and really the big thing is we'd like to go somewhere that we could have fun but also stay in and relax.  We're pretty much thinking we'd like to stick to the continental U.S. but hey, we're open.  We live in the SoCal area, if that helps.  Bottom line here: 


Seriously, I'm open to suggestions.  Do you live in a fun area?  Know of some great cupcake places near you that we need to try?  Did you visit this one place that one time and you really, really liked it?  


And heck, if we choose your place, maybe I'll send you a postcard saying, "Wish you were here"!

Well?  What are you waiting for??

Plan away!!


  1. What about going to vegas. There is a Create your own cupcake store called Mad Hatter Cupcakes that isn't too far from the strip. At least according to Google. It also looks like there is a cute cupcake store called Cupcake Lane Bakery there too.

  2. To heck with cupcakes come to Ky. Great hotel near me with an indoor pool weight room the whole shebang.. Plus it is easy access to the horse parks and such here in Ky. We have some of the most beautiful country in the world , course I am biased lol...

  3. You are crazy if you don't use your first anniversary to plan that once in a lifetime trip to blustery ol' Ottawa, Canada in the dead of winter. What could be better, I ask you? Nothing. That's what. We've got snowmen. Yup, MEN made of SNOW. And Hardware stores. LOTS of them. Nothing says romance like a new screw driver and socket set. Or even better, a new set of floor mats for your car. That's what SugarDaddy got BabyMama for their 10th year anniverary gift, or was that for her birthday....hmmmm...I forget. Anyhoo...the point is this CANADA ROCKS! Why?! Because I, dear sweet BlogBaby live here and if you were to come my way well, I might just have to jump up and down like you're offering ME a cupcake then take you on the best darn tour of the place you've probably never wanted to visit of your life.

    Tempting, no?

  4. Um, I think you should come to Ft. Worth ;) Everybody loves Cowtown! There's a Sprinkles Cupcakes within 30 minutes of the airport, does that help?

  5. That's tough, because everything I think of in Florida, you've got in So California! ok, you m ay have Disneyland, but we've got the WORLD. Universal? You've got that, Hey We've got Epcot!, We've got Busch Gardens. But what am I saying... Where I'd really like to be is in a cabin in the mountains! Fully stocked kitchen, lots of logs-on-the-fire,and nobody else but my sweetie, just looking at the snowed-in mountains! LOL... oh, and a 4-wheel drive. I'm told you need that for the snow. I'm sorry, I'm not much help. DO blog about what you end up doing though... so I can live through you! LOL

  6. Wow. Looks like you have some pretty decent suggestions here. My instinct was to say that the fact that you haven't made a plan yet is the universe telling you to stay where you are. My experience is that if you try too hard, things get all screwy. Maybe you should stay in your home town. Do something local. I know it doesn't scream ANIVERSARY, but sometimes a nice hotel room and room service is all you need. ? Call me crazy. Keri

  7. If you're looking to go cross-country, Key West is always a good time. There are a ton of bed and breakfasts and quaint little inns and the town has a cool, laid back funky vibe. Not sure about cupcake places, but there's a placed called The Blonde Giraffe that has chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick. There's a b&b called the Mermaid and the Alligator that's really nice and for couples only. Good luck!
