This past Monday was Hubs and I’s first wedding anniversary! Yay! =] One happy wonderful year down, a million gajillion more to go!
I seriously can’t believe it’s been a year. It feels like just this morning that I walked down the aisle!
We took a couple of days off to spend with each other, which was really nice. We had originally planned on going out of town but decided that we should stay home and relax (and save money). We did, however, go out to dinner and it was delicious! We went to The Pit.
If you’re a Food Network channel watcher then you know that they were featured on there and supposedly (I didn’t watch it, or if I did, I don’t remember – Hubs seems to remember) the chef at The Pit beat Bobby Flay in a cook off! The Pit is BBQ, but upscale. I guess that’s how I would describe it… I knew this place was “nicer” than just a regular ‘ol restaurant and I had the hardest time deciding what to wear because in reality, it’s still BBQ and how fancy can you be while eating BBQ? Anyway, the food was really good and we will definitely be going back!
Here’s a break down:
For appetizer we had Southern-Style Deviled Eggs and Hush Puppies and Biscuits with Sweet Butter. The sweet butter was so good! They probably just mixed sugar with their butter – haha – but it was good!
Hubs had the Double Combo with Beef Brisket, Half Rack of Carolina Style Spare Ribs and Heirloom Cabbage Collard Greens with Hand Cut Fries.
For dessert we had Aunt Hattie’s Double Chocolate Chocolate Cake with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream.
It was a really nice weekend being able to spend time with each other. It’s funny how we work the same daily work schedule but it can still feel like we don’t get to spend a whole lot of time just being with each other. Life is so busy! We all just need to slow it down a little sometimes.
Oh ya, I can’t not show off my flowers! =]
Oh ya (again) – I forgot to mention that we also got a FREE anniversary cake from the bakery that made our wedding cake. We still saved a piece of our wedding cake from a year ago and took a bite just to say we did – it actually wasn’t bad! Here’s a picture of our FREE anniversary cake:
I hope y’all had a great weekend!
