Now that we’re married, a lot of people would say our dating anniversary doesn’t really matter. But our first date was also the first time we ever met. (Online dating for the win!) So what may seem like a small event to some people now that we’re husband and wife is still pretty huge to me. My favorite person in the world has been in my life for three years now. I’ve had three years of waking up every day feeling cared about and loved.
To celebrate three years with my soul mate (corny, but true) I thought it would be fun to have a little staycation. The Element by Westin is the hotel Josh’s work put us up at when we were apparment hunting. It was my first time in Omaha and I remember being blown away by all the city had to offer, and so excited about our future. I also fell in love with the hotel. We joked that if we didn’t find an apartment we liked we’d be more than happy to live in the hotel. We ended up finding the perfect apartment just a half mile from the hotel, but the Element will always hold a special place in our heart. When we were given the opportunity to stay there this past Saturday night we were ecstatic.
We checked in, got all dolled up, went out for drinks, dinner, and saw Last Vegas (great movie!). We then came back to the hotel and curled up in the world’s comfiest bed and watched Lady Gag on SNL. (She was surprisingly good!) The next morning we lounged around, enjoyed the best complimentary breakfast I’ve ever had, and then headed back home. It was nice to have time to relax and focus on each other, free of distractions and technology. I love that we didn’t have to travel father than our backyard to do so. To see a photo recap of our staycation and get details on how to win your own night’s stay, read on.
