12 years.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Yesterday I ended up with an unintentional 3-day weekend, courtesy of strep throat and an ear infection.  Luckily, though, after 3 doses of antibiotics, I was feeling like a new person and we were able to keep our plans to celebrate our 12 year anniversary.

Joey took me to dinner at Paesanos - a place that we never go because we could eat anywhere else 3 times before we'd reach the amount we'd pay to go to Paesanos.  But, we had a gift card and an anniversary, so we went for it.

It was a beautiful night so we sat outside beside the pond.

(Please love the "ghost" behind Joey's head.  We haven't had a hard freeze in SA in over a week - and none forecasted - but they still have all of their plants covered.)

Look at the huge fish in the pond!  We enjoyed watching them and tossing in the occasional bread crumb as well.

Of course, we had to take the obligatory self-portrait.

I ordered the Shrimp Paesono and it did not disappoint.

But I have to say, Joey's steak was the best I'd ever had.  Seriously, so good!!

After dinner we went to see Unknown. (Such a great movie!) 

We had a great evening together, just relaxing.  Dinner was wonderful and the movie was great.

Happy anniversary, baby.  I love you!

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
