Anniversary Date

For our anniversary, Matt and I took a short vacation to Astoria to hang out and spend some quality husband & wifey time together.  I'm already jealous of my past self and I haven't even begun to describe all the awesome stuff we did.
First we stopped at this adorable new cafe called Marie Antoniette's Cupcake & Espresso Parlor. I died of adorableness. The inside was like a dream covered in glitter. The coffee & cupcake were also delicious. 
Then we wandered around town. And in Astoria it's not just your average wandering, every corner has some cutesy little shop or spectacular view of the river-- it's really just the most lovely town to take a stroll in. 
My mission for the day (besides reveling in the awesomeness that is my husband.. jealous?) was to thrift, thrift & thrift. We went to about 5 antique/ thrift stores in town. I swear there has been some big boom in thrift stores in recent years. Anyway, it was glorioooouuus! The stores were all filled with fun treasures and funky clothing -- we bought at least one or two things from each store. I'll try to post pics of our treasures later.
We then ate at the Silver Salmon Grille (they catered our wedding) and had the best, no for reals, THE BEST clam chowder ever. After inhaling the delish food, we, well maybe you can guess what we did? We thrifted some more!! ee! I may have a slight addiction. 
Finally we went home to find our son covered in water and mud, having a total blast -- it's basically a three year olds natural state. Matt took some pics of what I wore, then I took some allergy medicine and passed out at like 9. Best first wedding anniversary ever!
