We’re going to Colorado this weekend for our anniversary getaway (REJOICE), but we had to make our actual anniversary day special too! We began the Boswell way – with pancakes. ;) (Pancake pen available here.)
I gave Andrew one gift for every year we’ve been married, and I threw it back to our nautical wedding with my wrapping paper. ;)
Andrew bought me this
slightly too expensive bag that I love more than any other bag…a little nautical too, eh? :)
He also brought home some killer peonies that are still making my kitchen pretty!
We intended to get up and go for a walk, but we skipped the walk in favor of breakfast and headed to the zoo for our exercise instead. ;)
Andrew had planned an anniversary date night that was kept a secret from me until the day before, but I was SUPER thrilled when he told me he’d made reservations at VAST. We’d never been, and it was a perfect excuse to dress up and be fancy. ;)
He made sure we had a good window seat, and the hostess told us this was her favorite table when she seated us. :)
The view from the 49th floor is pretty incredible!
Good gravy, he’s cute.
I see you, fancy butter.
I was a little nervous that the food would be too pretentious for me (let’s face it, my tastebuds are a tad casual and wacko), but this steak was UH-MAZING. I wish I was eating another one right this second.
About three seconds before I took this picture, I had received a text message from Andrew’s mom saying, “Eat slow so you can watch the sunset!” Hahaha.
Vast thinks fruit is dessert. How cute.
We split the chocolate mousse. And by split, I mean I had two bites and Andrew devoured the rest. ;)
After dinner, we finally tried Roxy’s ice cream for the first time.
I must admit I still prefer Coldstone and Braum’s, but it was nice considering I hadn’t had sugar in a week. ;)
The day after our anniversary, these precious hooligans took us out for Cheesecake Factory to celebrate some more. :) Sorry for the pathetic selfie.
I miss you already, crispy chicken costoletta. I’m back on the protein diet until our trip this weekend!
Happy Tuesday, loves! :)
