Super Anniversary

Our first wedding anniversary was this Sunday night. To celebrate, Dan and I threw a HUGE Super Bowl party.
Dan actually used to throw Super Bowl parties every year, since before we were dating. Then, once we were dating, he kept throwing them but I kept having to work. Last year, we drove back from the wedding hotel during the Super Bowl and opened presents through the second half.

This year, I ended up kind of accidentally inviting over 70 people (I just put all the people I liked in an email... didn't take a count until after it went out.) Although I like everyone I invited, I am a little grateful some people said no... we ended up with almost 50 people passing through at one point or another!

Because there were so many people and I was being a busy hostess, I didn't take any pictures. We did manage to snap a picture of us eating the top tier of our wedding cake:

Chomp!
Feb 2nd 2013, for comparison.
It wasn't bad at all! Here's what I did: We stayed overnight at the hotel so I kept it in the fridge. As soon as I got home the next day, I wrapped it up immediately. First in plastic wrap, tight to the frosting. Then in tin foil. Then I double bagged it with Ziplocs. It worked great- still moist, still tasty, no freezer burn.

We are so glad to have had our friends come out and celebrate (and watch the game) with us. It was a pretty epic party... when we woke up the next morning, we had to mop before we could walk around barefoot. Sign of a good time? I think so!

Happy anniversary to my dear husband!
 
P.S. Last year it was a beautiful, sunny 70 degree day when we got married, as you can see from this picture. This year it was frigid and rainy. I am a lucky lady, in many ways!
