4 1/2 yrs. of Wedded Bliss

On Tuesday, the 22nd, Mike and I celebrated being married for 4 1/2 years. Yeah, I know, it's not the full year yet, right? But why not celebrate?! Maybe we'll make it a tradition. It sure was fun. I did the surprising and planning and I had a lot of fun doing it. Mike hadn't a clue as to what was going on. All he knew was that there was a surprise and he needed to be done working by 5 p.m. so he could get ready. :)
I bought him a new pair of clothes as he seems to be plum out of dressy clothing. And after he showered I gave him a gift bag. On top was a card that told him how much I loved him and that if he kept looking deeper within the contents of the bag, he'd find all the surprises! Next came directions to The Melting Pot (a neat fondue restaurant that he'd been wanting to try for several years) and on it a note telling him that dinner was at 6:30. Below that he found his clothes, and THEN he came to the finale-a gift certificate to get a professional Massage! Wow! (I told him he'd better take me with him! haha!)

So we got all dressed up and got our picture taken. Mike's aunt watched the kidlets for us (which was so nice!!!)
First off our waitress heated up the 1st fondue pot and made a spinach artichoke fondue to dip all sort of things in. On the plate there was all kinds of bread chunks, apples, vegetables, etc... Sooo yummy.
Then, We each got a delicious salad of our choice. Mike got a Cesear salad, and I got one with baby greans and Raspberry Vinegarette.
Next we got our entree of choice. I got a vegetable plate with all sorts of vegetables-portabello mushrooms, asparagus, edamame, broccoli, vegetable won tons, tofu, etc... It comes out to you all raw and uncooked and you bowl it in your "fondue pot" full of vegetable broth and seasonings. Really interesting!
By this point, you're full, but you can't resist getting dessert because it just sounds like the icing on the cake. And it was! Out comes this plate full of all kinds of delectable desserts (my favorites were the strawberries and rice krispie treats AND you dip it all in a peanut butter chocolate fondue. Oooooh my. It was good. Too good.

At the end, they brought me out a lovely pink rose and wished us a very happy Anniversary. :)
It was a fun experience. Wouldn't do it again too soon since it costs an arm and a leg. But it was fun and neat. And we had a great time together.
Well, I wonder what 5 yrs. will bring? It's right around the corner!
Love you Mike! :-)
