We got a great deal through Living Social.  For $121, we get a night in a deluxe king room at the Four Points Sheraton, a $45 dinner voucher and $20 free breakfast in their cafe.  Very excited!  If you’re local and that sounds like a deal you’d be interested in, click here, because if 3 people purchase this deal, then we get ours free…would be a great anniversary gift! :)

      Laura, I’ve only just discovered the joy of Living Social and Groupon, but I am enjoying them so far!

    Happy Anniversary! If we lived local I would buy that deal with you :) Our anniversary is on June 30th. If my son is eating more solids by then, my husband and I are going to go somewhere overnight and leave the kids with family for the first time in our entire marriage. In our 5 years of marriage I have either been either pregnant or breastfeeding every single time our anniversary rolls around. I hope you have a great romantic getaway with you and your hubby. Its good for your marriage and yourself!

      Lindsey, thanks so much. I completely understand! We got to go to Niagara Falls for our first anniversary, but since then it’s had to be really low key day trips. So, we’re excited just for a one-night getaway :) I hope it works out for you and your husband to have that as well, although it’s hard to leave the kiddos at first.

I love to hear your feedback and value your thoughts! All I ask is that we remain respectful and civil, even when we disagree. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate you!

Thank you for joining in the discussion!
