    Seeing as how you're in Alabama, a beachwalk is out. [​IMG] Bummer.

    How about a meal at home with something really special, seafood or steaks. Set the atmosphere with candles, curtains, china etc.?
    Now, my DH wouldn't go for that.
    So, maybe a day fishing on the lake with a picnic?
    Whatever you choose, be sure you unplug the phone and turn off the TV!

    Just depends upon what you both like! Mine goes for steaks on the grill, spending the day doing nothing much and some *romantic time*. [​IMG]

    Happy Anniversary to you both!

    Wait wait, I LOVE questions like this! [​IMG] I keep thinkng on it.

    Fisrt anniversary is traditionally Paper- Origami? Newspaper subscription?

    haha his hobbies are chickens and john deere stuff. I am clueless about what to do. I know that we are going to go down to the beach and eat at a nice restraunt down there. I wish that I hasn't done all the cutesy stuff early on in our relationship because now I dont have anything. I made him a scrapbook one ear for Valentine's Day and that would have been perfect but UGH I've already done it.

    No! Don't buy him anything. Sets a bad precident - you'll be buying gifts for the rest of your life. I know everyone is different, but we always have gifts that are for both of us or the house. For example, on our 17th I bought my husband a riding mower. We needed one and it's really for both of us (got sick of the push mower myself) plus he was happy. For the 20th, it was a trip to Europe. I just started thinking about the upcoming 25th, probably another trip.

    If I bought my DH a gift just for him, it's more like his birthday. Anniversary is OURS, not him or her. That's how we do it. Congratulations and I wish you both a long and happy marriage! [​IMG]
