>Most of you are reading this because we have something in common . . . . . yarn! So, I have to tell you about my time out with hubby last night.
I had no idea where we were going. All he told me was that maybe if we left early we could walk around some of the shops near the restaurant. Because our sitter was late and getting the kids situated we didn’t have a ton of time to shop, BUT he did pull into one store. A YARN SHOP!!! He took me yarn shopping for our anniversary!!! Have I mentioned I love my hubby?!?!?! LOL If we had more time I may have picked out more, but this is what I left with.
I’ve been looking for a variegated yellow for a while. Hopefully this will work for what I have in mind. The bottom row is called “Coffee Beanz”. I had never seen or heard of it before, but it’s sooo soft. I think I might be selfish and save them to make something for me. Considering I’ve only made myself one thing over the years I think that’s ok, don’t you?
On to our dinner. I love Italian food, so he found this nice Italian restaurant about 1/2 hour from where we live. REAL Italian, not someone who sells lasagna & shells (although, on any given day, I’m all for that too) . For an appetizer we ordered bruschetta. I’m not a huge bruschetta fan, but this was amazing! They seared the bread on a charcoal-fired, outdoor grill. Heavenly!
Dinner was amazing (sorry, no pic). Many years ago, our hope was to go back to Ireland for our 10 year anniversary. That was planned at least 2 children ago, so let’s just say, maybe another year. lol. So for dessert we decided on “Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake”. Amazing!
Love spending time with my hubby. We have so much to be grateful for, and we love spending every moment we can with the kids, but it’s so nice to be alone for a couple of hours. I look forward to many more anniversaries to come.
