A Visit to New Jersey

After our few days in Indiana, Addy and I headed to the airport and headed east again for a weekend in New Jersey for a family wedding celebration. Taylor met us at the airport and Addy was thrilled to see her Daddy!

We stayed near Denville, NJ where Taylor’s Aunt and Uncle live. It was a super busy weekend and Addy loved meeting her Aunts, Uncles, and cousins for the first time. We ate way too much food and loved seeing everyone!

Denville is a super cute town. On Saturday morning we walked around the downtown shopping area and a cute creek near by. We then grabbed some lunch then headed back to the hotel to get ready for the party later in the day.

Addy had the time of her life at the wedding picnic! She ate, danced and ate some more. Her grandpa hogged her most of the evening, but she loved every minute it.  She was treated to cookies and ice cream and they danced the evening away, she was all smiles.

Happy 2nd Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to Us!217

It’s crazy how fast two years have flown by! It seems like we were just celebrating on a hot 104 degree day with family and friends at Purdue. So many exciting adventures have taken place in the first two years of our marriage we can’t wait for the excitement of our third!

We will be having a pretty low key celebration today. Taylor has been working all day, I had a doctor appointment(Baby B is doing well!) and have done some errands, we will workout tonight together and come home and eat dinner. We are celebrating at the end of the month with a anniversary trip/baby moon. We are headed to the Maldives! We are so excited to have this opportunity and can’t wait to share the experience with you all.

Celebrating Our First Anniversary in Singapore

It’s amazing how time flies! A year ago we were getting married at Purdue University among our family and friends. It was a super hot day, topping out at 104 degrees, but made the most of it and had a blast!

After one year of wedded bliss…

To celebrate our anniversary, we went to the “vintage” champagne brunch at Greenhouse in the Ritz-Carlton Singapore. Brunch is huge in Singapore! This was definitely a special occasion so we went top notch with the champagne brunch to celebrate. It was all you can eat and drink. I would reccomned this brunch for anyone celebrating a special occasion or if you have special guests in town. I called a few days ahead of time and got a reservation. The Sunday Champagne brunch runs from 12:00 to 3:30 and costs about S$160 per person, while this is pricey, you can easily spend this much on the alcohol alone. We had reservations right at noon and were there until 3:30.

It was a nice and relaxing atmposphere and our glasses were never empty as there were endless pours of Moet champagne! We enjoyed the selection of food. There was a lot of seafood(I tried, Taylor is not a fan of, but I know we have a lot of family out there that would have loved this!), meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, and desserts.

Here are our pictures from our day! Starting off are some pictures of the food stations.

We tried a little bit of everything on our plates. I even went outside my comfort zone a bit with the seafood.

Our drinks! Champagne, mojitos and a strawberry daiquiri type drink. IMG_1271 - CopyIMG_1293 - CopyIMG_1302

They gave us a cute little dessert. The candle is kind of funny, it felt more like a birthday treat than an anniversary, but still was a kind gesture.

And lastly, instead of keeping the top layer of cake on our wedding night(how would we even gotten that back to DC or to Singapore?!?!) we purchased a bottle of Hawaiian pineapple champagne on our honeymoon. This bottle has traveled a far distance! Since we have had so much champagne at brunch we will be saving this for celebrating in our new home here. That bottle will hopefully be popped in a few short weeks! Woohoo!
