I had no idea where we were going. All he told me was that maybe if we left early we could walk around some of the shops near the restaurant. Because of getting the kids situated we didn't have a ton of time to shop, BUT he did pull into one store. A YARN SHOP!!! He took me yarn shopping for our anniversary!!! Have I mentioned I love my hubby?!?!?! LOL If we had more time I may have picked out more, but this is what I left with.
On to our dinner. I love Italian food, so he found this nice Italian restaurant about 1/2 hour from where we live. REAL Italian, not someone who sells lasagna & shells (although, on any given day, I'm all for that too) . For an appetizer we ordered bruschetta. I'm not a huge bruschetta fan, but this was amazing! They seared the bread on a charcoal-fired, outdoor grill. Heavenly!
Dinner was amazing (sorry, no pic). Many years ago, our hope was to go back to Ireland for our 10 year anniversary. That was planned at least 2 children ago, so let's just say, maybe another year. lol. So for dessert we decided on "Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake". Amazing!
Love spending time with my hubby. We have so much to be grateful for, and we love spending every moment we can with the kids, but it's so nice to be alone for a couple of hours. I look forward to many more anniversaries to come.
