Better late than never anniversary post

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER......Feb 21, was Jonathan and I's 6th anniversary. Hard to believe that we have been married for 6 years...and together almost 8.
Jonathan planned this entire anniversary....when I came home Friday from work he had a song start playing (the theme from Fireproof) And he was so sweet when He repledged his love to me in the form of a "vow". Needless to say I was in tears!!! Then we went out to Long John Silvers for supper. It was pretty good...since I don't really like fish all that much....but it tasted good.
Then the next morning we had fun just shopping and relaxing togather...then we got all dressed up and headed out for dinner at a Steak house called Bynum's. (I LOVE steak...especially now!!!) It was a bit of a pricy hole in the wall restraunt...but we never do this so for our anniversary we figured a splurge we could afford would be ok. The restraunt was very old fashion inside...alot of exposed wooden beams, and textured walls and such. And on alot of the beams were sayings or mottos. It was very nice.
Enjoying our appitizer which was kind of a joke...a cheeseball platter and crackers. Aprox $6!!! (Jonathan said we could buy our own cheese ball and crackers and it would last longer.) But it was good and nice to munch on.

Then they brought us their "Famous Onion soup" It was ok...pretty salty. Neither Jon nor I are that much of Onion people. So we wished we would have went with the tomato soup...but it's what the waitress sugguested. We also got a delicious salad and yummy bread.
Than after being almost full...came the main course. Jonathan got a pretty fancy steak...I think it was Strip steak. It was very tender and juicy...just kind of melted in your mouth. (If steak can melt.)

I on the other hand...just really wanted a lot of steak!! (even though my appetite lately can't handle alot of I knew I would have steak today and steak Monday for my lunch.) So I ordered a 22 oz steak. (a T-bone) My eyes about fell out when I saw my food. I think in all I ate a little over half of my potato and about 4 or 5 bites of steak. But even though it was a more chewy steak than Jon's I LOVED IT!!!

Then our waitress said since it was our anniversary they had a little cupcake for us.
It ended up being a little cheescake on top of an oreo. It was just wonderful...and even though we were full....we managed to share it and not go over the top on our stomaches.

They were creative in wrapping my leftovers.

Then we headed downtown to go to the Symphony! Jonathan had an old friend from Highschool that worked there and she was able to give us FREE TICKETS!!!!

We got to Choose to sit about 4 or 5 rows from the front. I wish now that I would have choose to sit further back..because we couldn't see all the orchestra. But at least we were in front of the violins. (which I love..and I play myself..but NO WHERE even close as well as they do.) The also had a guest piano player...he was ok...but he was the lightest handed male piano player I had ever heard. He was only 28. The director was 27!!!! He was your "mad professor" director type. But it was awsome that he directed is first piece with NO MUSIC. He even directed in instruments that just had a solo for like 2 measures. He did just wonderful. I was very thankful to Jon's friend...because this is something I have been wanting to do..but knew Jonathan would be bored..and plus the cost was just a bit much for us. So FREE was just great!

I had so much fun just dressing up for a evening out on the town. ( I love getting all dressed up...I would love to have a reason to buy and wear those prom dresses in the mall.)
But most of all I had the most wonderful time with my BESTEST FRIEND (even though he did fall asleep and lightly snore at the concert!!!)
Baby doll, I love you so much and I am so excited about the big changes in our life. It is going to be a journey of adventures, trials, smile, and tears. But as long as we are making it together I am blessed.
