Tell Us Something Good: Anniversary Recap

So, my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary last Friday.  And we made the choice to celebrate it with our beautiful children, Moo and JJ.  We just really want to demonstrate the importance of celebrating the sacred union that marriage is and is suppose to be.  Anyways, my first gift of the day was that both of the kiddies slept in. 

Can you say score!!  I didn't have to roll out of bed until after 10 AM.  I was supposed to go grocery shopping because our frig was like borderline empty.  To my surprise my husband had already gone.  Another score because when I go I usually have to take Moo because she will whine until I give in.  Thus, it takes me a little bit more time to shop with her in tow because she's picking up stuff off the shelves and I'm busy putting it back.

We did have a little car trouble but that didn't put a damper on our day.  We still got lunch from the Chicken Box.  It's third place my husband took me to eat when we first met.  Well, I should say that we ordered something to eat from because the Chicken Box is a  hole in the wall with an order window and a kitchen.  There is no space to eat inside.  And it's in the hood and you have to get there before the lunch rush.

It's like a hidden treasure and oh so addictive.  My favorite is their Philly Cheese Steak.  I don't have a clue what they season their meat with but it tastes fantastic and it's so juicy and cheesy and the onions....  I could go on and on about this sandwich.  They have some bangin homemade cole slaw too.

We exchanged gifts.  My husband got me some new clothes because let's face it my body is never going to be the same as it was before my kids.  My booty is bigger and boobs are bigger.  Both of which my husband is like yeah baby. LOL.  Me not so much.  I miss the days when I could shop at the Limited Too for cute tops and shorts.

I got him a cool poster for his future man cave.  He had these old beat up slippers that had a holes in the bottom and he walked the back part down.  So, I him a new pair.  These have memory foam in the soles and are nice and thick.  He said they feel like clouds and he's been living in them every waking moment since  I gave them to him. 

I got him some gourmet chocolates too.  We both have a bit of a sweet tooth.  And to round out the gift giving, I got him a magazine subscription.  I can't remember the magazine title but it was Men's something another.  He had complained before that our mailbox is always filled with magazines for me and I wanted to get him something that he could read and enjoy.

He cooked dinner that night and we enjoyed Thor.  I think it was a pretty good movie and can't wait for part 2.  All in all, it was a great day.  Thank you to everyone who sent Happy Anniversary wishes.
