Anniversary Weekend

This weekend we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. My how time flies!!
Our actual anniversary was on the 21st, but that weekend didn't work for us to go on a little get away.
It was my turn to plan our anniversary get away this year. I had been debating about where to go for a few months. I finally picked the Hyatt in Long Beach. It's right across the street from the harbor and has a great view of Shoreline Village and the Queen Mary. We actually looked into getting married at this Hyatt!
We arrived on Saturday afternoon to check in. Since our room wasn't ready yet, we checked our luggage and then headed across the street to the extended Shoreline Village. They have tons of newer restaurants & shops, and plus the aquarium at the end.

We headed out onto a little pier to take in the scenery along with taking a few pictures.

About a minute after we took this last picture, the sky opened up and poured on us! We ran for cover and hid out under some thick trees until it reduced down to a sprinkle.

From there we headed back to the hotel bar to catch most of the USC game. They kicked butt of course.

A little while later we headed up to our room, which had an awesome view of the harbor. I couldn't have asked for a better view. I was nervous about the quality of room we would get since there were two different functions going on at the convention center. Phew!

After settling into our room, we got ready to head to dinner. Since we both love Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co, we ditched the fancy, romantic anniversary dinner and went for some yummy shrimp. I got a Lt. Dan's Pomegranate Punch and Cuong got some sort of limey margarita. Delicious!

Love the way the lights turned out in the nightime pics. The shine left by the rain is cool too. Looks like it was staged like the pics we see for new home ads. ha ha.
