{Life}: Anniversary Weekend.

Last Thursday was our four year anniversary (like I mentioned here). We decided to stay in town and do relaxing but fun things staycation style. I am so glad we did - it was tons of fun and very low stress.

Friday night I got back in town from a conference and we went to my parents' house for steaks - a bourdelaise recipe my dad makes that is my favorite by Pierre Franey. I did find a copy of the recipe from an old newspaper, linked here - it is on the top right of that first page linked.

Saturday we walked around the neighborhood before going downtown to do an appetizer crawl. It was a beautiful day - look at that blue sky!

We went to the Flying Saucer first for their soft pretzels with rotel:

Before walking down over to Local for their bar fries:

We ended the tour de' carbs by meeting up with Jake's brother and sister and their friends at South of Beale, where we had their famous Jack and Coke bread pudding.

Then it was home to recover and digest... and sneak in some quality time with the pups:

Before going out for our big anniversary dinner. We ended up going to Paulette's, which has moved downtown to the River Inn at Harbor Town. The lobby was so cozy and had the piano player just like the old place.

I got my favorite - Chicken Sicilian and of course got the Hot Fudge Crepe. What a classically good dinner.

Sunday we went to church and then spent some time with family and friends. Sunday night was Ellen's birthday so we went to Local (this time the Midtown location):

Monday was spent resting, crafting, and watching the Grizz play. All in all, a great anniversary weekend! I sure am grateful to have this guy by my side.

In love,
