Our One Year Anniversary

We did it! Mr. McB and I have been married for one year. :)

I wanted to post on our actual anniversary with pictures from our weekend together. However, I seem to have misplaced my camera cord-or was that Mr. McB that misplaced it? Anyway, I will write a post today about our anniversary and then try to post pictures when I find the cord.

Overall, I have had a wonderful first year of marriage. My love grows for Mr. McB as each day passes. I can't imagine life without him near.

I also won't candy-coat things. The first year of marriage is hard. It is hard to always agree. It is hard to get use to the other persons' lifestyle. It is hard to be around the person so much. It is sometimes not beautiful and perfect.

However, the good outweights the bad and it is absolutely worth it-especially when he looks me in the eyes and gives me a big kiss.

Friday night, Mr. McB and I hung out with friends. We went over to one of Mr. McB's best friend's girlfriends' because his friend was in town from NY. They were nice enough to grill fajitas and they were wonderful. Then, we headed out to see "The Hangover" as a group. That movie was great. I laughed most of the time even though I wasn't feeling great. Then, we headed back over to their place to hang out.

The next morning, Mr. McB and I headed to Pittsburgh, PA for the Kenny Chesney concert. For our anniversary, we wanted to stick with traditional paper gifts-so I got Mr. McB tickets to see Lady Antabellum, Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry, Sugarland and Kenny Chesney. What an amazing line up. First, we went to eat at The Cheesecake Factory. I wasn't very hungry, but had the fabulous lunch portion of their grilled salmon. It was fabulous! :) Then, we got stuck in traffic for forever. After finally parking, we stopped by Calico Jack's Cantina. It was such a great place. Then we headed inside for the concert. I had such a great time.

After the concert, we knew we would be in traffic for awhile. So, we decided to stay in Pittsburgh at the Holiday Inn Express. I was shocked by how nice it was. The breakfast the next morning was amazing.

Our actual anniversary was not very exciting. We drove home from Pittsburgh, rearranged our living room and then Mr. McB had to coach a baseball game.

I will leave with a few pictures from our wedding.

Cute blog! Congrats on the milestone! You're right... the first year isn't easy. We'll hit our 2 year in July. The second year was better - but I would never say that marriage is "easy". Here's to many more! God Bless!
