5 Year Anniversary!!

We celebrated our 5 Year anniversary at the end of December and it was magical! Nate's sister, Lizzy, was still in town and so she lovingly volunteered to watch our kiddo's so we could go celebrate! Thanks Lizzy!!

We started our day off with a lovely couples massage at Massage Envy, which was quite amazing!

After our massages we went home to shower and get ready for our dinner. My stud of a husband took me to one of my favorite places, Ruth's Chris. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant for us (and most people) and I was SO surprised and excited to be eating there!! I am a lucky, spoiled girl!

Anyway, we ate, talked about our "Top 5's" of several categories throughout our 5 years of marriage, and laughed about some fun memories we've shared.

Here's a pic of Nate's delicious salad... it was SOO stinkin' good!
And my caesar was huge and quite delicious as well. I ate almost the entire thing!
5 years! The old couple in the background were actually celebrating their anniversary as well! We talked about how one day we'll be like them, but then before we left we asked them how long they have been married and they said, 10 years!!!! Maybe we don't want to be like them after all!! We'll shoot for being married 50 years instead :)
And our delicious dessert that was complimentary for our anniversary. It was probably the best cheesecake I have ever had!! Mmmmm, my mouth is watering just looking at this picture.
After dinner we had planned to go to a movie, but we ended up not feeling very well and were pretty tired and so we decided to go home instead. It kind of made me feel old making that decision, but I had already had such a wonderful day with the hubs that it didn't seem to matter.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a man like Nate decide to marry me. He's smart, funny, kind, loving, a great father, a loyal friend, an optimist, a great priesthood holder, hard-working, handy with household stuff, eager to learn, strives to be better, and an uplifting companion. And he is mine. :) I love you babe!
