Crab Puffs and Lava Cakes

Today is our anniversary.

With three young children, we didn't plan the most extravagant evening together. We decided dinner at our favorite local restaurant would be the quickest, cheapest, and most enjoyable option for the night.  We left right before the children went to bed (thank you, Cheryl and Rex!) and headed off to Chen's Chinese Restaurant.

We were seated and soon presented with a couple of gifts. Eric, our friend and the owner of the restaurant, greeted us with a platter of crab puffs and a bouquet of daisies.
Cheryl had dropped the flowers off earlier in the day, and Eric decided we needed some complimentary appetizers. We enjoyed the rest of our meal together and we surprised again when Eric placed two plates with hot, chocolate-filled lava cakes in front of us.

The only downside to the evening was my fortune at the end of the night.
I get the hint, universe...but I don't plan on exercising for at least a couple of more months.

It was a perfect night. It's always nice to have a date with your best friend.


  1. I'm so glad you had a nice evening together! Happy Anniversary!

  2. Yeah, not funny universe. But what a sweet night! Happy Anniversary!

  3. Yeah, so about that exercise business. It's for the birds. Haha. I'm so glad you guys got a little time away and enjoyed yourselves. Those flowers are beautiful. And you look beautiful. Nathan looks studly. The end. Oh yeah, and Happy Anniversary!
