Our first date was THE perfect date. God definitely gave me a sign during this date that Todd was THE one for me. We celebrate this date every year because we both thought it was the perfect first date. It is also when we both fell in love with one another. What a great reason to celebrate. We do not take our love for granted, we both have been in bad marriages prior and gave it the good ol' try.
We first started our celebration on Sunday because Todd had to work and Noah had a choir concert on Tuesday night. We went to our favorite lunch spot. Three Samaria. It is an excellent Asian restaurant. This place has the best vegetable dumplings. We always order them, you need to order it as soon as you sit down before the rest of your order because it takes a while to make. They are made fresh to order and worth the wait. The sushi is outstanding there and I love their Bento Box meals. When we dine there for dinner we usually reserve the grill, so we can experience the cooking show along with the wonderful food.
Tuesday, the 15th came and two hours after Todd started, he called and asked me what did I think about spending the day with him. I loved the idea. We actually were unable to do a whole lot because I did have to pick up Joshua and Matthew for Noah's concert that night. We ended up going to lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, nothing fancy since we had our fancy meal on Sunday. Then we drove home and watched four episodes of Sons of Anarchy a new series we are beginning to enjoy.
I made a new dinner that night, mini meatloaf. I found the idea on Pinterest.
I enjoyed the evening with all four of my boys. It was so delightful to see them ALL interact with one another and laughing. The older two have been at odds with one another. Ethan has been at odds with Matthew for a few years. This night they all were close once again. Enjoying one another.
Noah is in the back, fifth one on the right. He just happened to look up when I took this photo.
