Day 1827 – Anniversary Scavenger Hunt

Yesterday was our five year anniversary and what a fun day it was!!!

I had an idea the day before of going on a scavenger hunt! I asked my wonderful Facebook friends and got some great results!

Here is the list of locations and things I had in mind before I even thought of the scavenger hunt:

  • Dress like cows for free CFA
  • Visit the place where we talked about the future.
  • Broom’s Bloom for cream of crab soup.
  • First Friday’s in Bel Air.
  • TGIFriday’s for endless appetizers.
  • Free Slurpee at 7-Eleven

And here is the crazy list of everything our friends wanted us to find!

  1. Orange flower
  2. Rubber band
  3. Coin from 2009
  4. Priest’s collar
  5. Poison ivy
  6. Justin Bieber concert t-shirt
  7. VHS tape of Bret doing his workout routine
  8. Picture of us at a Bret or Jen street sign
  9. Elderly couple – ask for 1 piece of marriage advice
  10. Cold beer
  11. Couple out together
  12. 4 legs
  13. Heart shaped something
  14. Bottomless beer
  15. Napkin/coaster from a place we went when dating
  16. Couple displaying affection
  17. Another couple married in 2009
  18. Something old
  19. Something new
  20. Something borrowed
  21. Something blue
  22. Item with cost of wedding date – $7.11 or $711.09
  23. One of us carrying the other over the threshold
  24. Band at First Friday’s dedicate a song to us
  25. Dance to a song not playing
  26. 2 blank VHS tapes at the White Marsh Best Buy
  27. Bacon
  28. Bottle of homemade wine
  29. Pic of rings in a unique or hidden place so hard to find
  30. Cripple at First Friday’s
  31. Rock shaped heart to keep
