My wife and I celebrate our two-year anniversary today. Originally, we had planned on spending an extended weekend around the area where we got married in SW Wisconsin. We were going to spend some time with family, do some shopping in Galena, IL and stay the night at a B&B...
That all changed when the wife went on eBay and bought tickets to yesterday's Packers game at Lambeau Field! Due to the arrangements of the purchase, the tickets wouldn't make it here by mail in time before we left for the weekend. So, we drove a little extra to pick them up in person. Then, after spending a day or so with my parents, we trekked up toward Green Bay for some football!
After spending the night in Appleton, we followed the masses right up to the stadium - turned left, and ended up parking in a local resident's yard for $10 (some lawns were in the $22 range). A three block walk got us to the gate. We had a great time at the game and didn't even get that cold. It did get a bit chilly when the clouds blocked out the sun, but with all the crowd 'packed' in tight it was really nice overall.
Today, I'm enjoying my time off - the wife was jealous because she didn't take it off and had to go to work. I'll do some shopping today and find her a good anniversary present. ;)
