The 18th was our 5th wedding anniversary! I can't believe it has been 5 years. The two years I waited for Devin seemed longer than these past 5.
To celebrate on the actual day, we ate at The Deli. It was fabulous! Loved the atmosphere and the food, and the prices were pretty good. We didn't have a babysitter so we brought the boys (and Jeni too). I pretty much loathe taking kids out to eat because getting them to sit still in an environment that's new and needs to be explored is quite a task. But, they both ate and behaved perfectly.
Devin said that the carrot cake from The Deli has been voted by some magazines as the best in The Valley so of course he had to try it. It was good, but his cake certainly could give the chef a run for his money.
So to really celebrate, the next night we dropped the kids off at Devin's parents and we headed to a nice child-free dinner at Buca Di Beppo because it's one of our favorites and we had a coupon for a free appetizer. We got stuffed mushrooms and salad. It was very delicious as usual!
After dinner we went to see a movie. We didn't really have one picked out. We figured we'd decide when we arrived at the theater. I wanted a romantic comedy so I thought Have You Heard About the Morgans would be a good choice. We got tickets and while we waited decided to try the chocolate Coke at Johnny Rockets. I was a believer, but Devin was skeptical. He ended up loving it and wanted to shout from the rooftops about how good it was. He really loved it.
While we enjoyed our Coke and fries we debated over our movie choice. He wanted to see Avatar, but I was not interested in that one at all. But, I figured that all the good parts of The Morgans were probably in the previews so took a chance on Avatar. I'm really glad we did because I LOVED it! It was so great. I could have cut some of the action scenes a little shorter, but the movie was fantastic. Go see it...I mean it! Oh, we saw it in 3D and it made it that much cooler!
My favorite part of the night was when the movie ended and we stood up and Devin said, "Oh my legs!" like he was in pain from a strenuous activity or hard labor or something. I had run 18 miles that morning! And HE was the one complaining about his legs! Seriously?
The movie was almost 3 hours so we got home pretty late. It was a fun day and I am so blessed to be married to such a wonderful man!
