Perfect 10!

Our 10th Anniversary Weekend started with NO WATER in our building. Water was out for 2 days without notice from the city. Early Friday morning, I trekked to a lavandaria (laundromat) around the corner where I could wash our clothes to pack!
It was clean and had free Wi-Fi.
This machine that said, "You can be a WINNER!"
EVERY 5 minutes
EVERY
5
minutes
No water meant no showers at home.
Thankfully, we have a church with
a Green Room and a shower.
After depositing the kids with one of their favorite families,
we drove to our hotel.
Little did we know, it was a McDonald's hotel
located at Hamburger University!
The view from our Hyatt Hotel patio
It was a beautiful, secluded wooded area
Our tradition is to go to a DoubleTree
for the Cookies!!
But read the morbid line up at the DoubleTree
Suicide and Self-Mutilation!!!
Foreclosure!!!
Back at the McDonald's Hyatt
Beautiful campus to explore and relax
Then we off to a Daughtry concert
Did drinks with David Hodges & his band
He wrote songs with Daughtry, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, 
wrote all of Evanescence for years, and many more
And was the opening act for Daughtry

It was a wonderful way to celebrate 10 years because the weekend truly reflected the chaos, beauty, humor, awesome coolness and surrealness of our 10 years together.

Sounds like an absolutely fabulous time (other than the start with no water).
