June 7, 2007

Our fourth anniversary ended up being a great night!

Don was sent home by 2:30 in the afternoon - and those of you that know Brink's, know that this alone is shocking! He showed up at the door with two dozen pink roses in his Brink's uniform. I thought he was just stopping for a brief moment to surprise me with flowers and then off he goes to finish the rest of his afternoon jobs, but he was DONE!

He was excited about coming home early so he was able to squeeze in a nap before going out to eat.

We ended going to The Melting Pot. It is an all fondue restaurant. It took two hours to enjoy our four course fondue feast.

We started with a cheese fondue that we dipped three different types of bread, vegetables, and granny smith apples (strange, but yummy!)

Next, we were brought out our salads.

Then onto our entree. We could choose from two different broths that we would cook our meat in. We then were brought out our plate of meat. We had shrimp, tuna, fillet minion (spelling?), teriyaki steak, curry chicken, and potstickers. It only took 1 - 2 minutes to cook the meat in the broth and it was a lot of fun!

Finally, we gorged ourselves on the dessert fondue. We chose a smore chocolate to dip our cheesecake, poundcake, brownies, strawberries, pineapples, and bananas. This, of course, was my favorite!

We basically held our bellies all the way home moaning from the wonderful meal we had just had. Don even went to confess that this was the best meal he had ever had. I would have to agree! It was fantastic and we would highly recommend it to anyone!

Happy Anniversary to US!

Today marks the fourth year of our blessed union before God and man. We woke up this morning to the sound of the song "You're Still the One" playing on our ipod. And it is so true. Don is still, I believe, the best guy ever (and I am sure all the wives out there echo this for your husbands as well!) and God has designed for us to be together. At times it seems like we have been married longer than just four years (maybe it's because we have known each other and dated for four years previous to our marriage) and at other times I can't believe it has been four years. We have had a lot of fun times together and here is just a brief picture show commemorating our previous June 7ths together!

June 7, 2003 - Our Wedding Day!

June 7, 2004 - 1st Anniversary - Niagara Falls!! As you can see, the free little garbage bags wouldn't really help against the spray from the falls!

June 7, 2005 - 2nd Anniversary - Myrtle Beach - Purchased Godiva the day before we left on this trip. She was at home by herself whining as she was depressed from having left her siblings and now we up and leave her blockaded in our kitchen. Our neighbors came over and let her out a few times a day, but she was mainly by herself. The trauma hasn't seem to affected her at all. I just remember that trip we were thinking up the name we would give her . . . Madison and Hershey made the list, but we eventually went with Godiva - the best choice - We think!

June 7, 2006 - King's Dominion - We stayed at the campground and had a two-day pass. It was a lot of fun!

Thank you, Don, for being the man of my dreams! You love the Lord suprememly, you provide for your wife not just financially, you're my best friend, and I am thrilled to celebrate once again our marriage and look forward to many more years together! I love you Donny!

(P.S. Sorry the photos are a little messed up, those were taken with our 35 mm and scanned funky!)
