Anniversary number eight. My my.
October 20th fell on a Sunday this year, so we basically celebrated all weekend, which was fun!
I talked Russ into taking the morning off so we got donuts for breakfast, drove up to Ikea to get some more un-neccessities, and then he helped me get the boys into bed for naps before taking off for the afternoon. have i said this before? quality time (only when it comes to Russ) is my love language. i've said this before, i'm sure. i don't require time of virtually any other person on this planet, except him. i enjoy him that much, and when he sacrifices time to hang out, i am in heaven.
we had a babysitter for that night too, so we could get Black Sheep's green chili stew. we tried it first last year and both died over it, so we've been waiting months for the weather to cool off so we could eat it again! it's just one of those foods you can't eat unless it's cold out. locals: go, and be dazzled.
We went to the temple. Not OUR temple, where we got married, but a temple. It's basically like a vow renewal every time you go, such a great reminder of promises we made each other as wee babes of 19 and 21. we came out feeling peaceful, and apparently needed sunglasses.
Quickest costume change ever, so we could drop the boys off at the 3rd babysitter of the weekend, sorry kids! We zipped up to our dinner reservation...
Ruth's Chris! Russ is SUCH a steak person. In turn our boys have turned into steak freaks. Side Note: Hayes requests Texas Roadhouse for dinner all too often, we get them an 8 ounce steak to split, they eat at least 4 rolls per, fries, onion blossom, chocolate milk, and peanuts galore. Am I a freak that nothing makes me happier knowing they're eating a million calories?
just driving... for those who asked my necklace is an Anna Bee "Horizontal Plate" necklace. it has our anniversary "1020" inscribed, so naturally, sentimentally, i wore it all weekend.
Speaking of a million calories. Dinner. And I wouldn't mind a banana creme pie brulee every day until forever.
You know the concert drill by now, this time we saw Jeremy Messersmith. His voice! I'll let it slide that he sat at the bar woo-ing some co-ed while we waited for an HOUR for him to get on the stage.
hope she was worth it & you owe our babysitter, Jer.
