"It's Our Anniversary"...(In my singing voice)!

We celebrated BEST wedding anniversary ever a couple of weeks ago! Let me start off by saying, my husband and I agreed not to buy any gifts, because of a large expense we have coming up. We decided TOGETHER, to just go to dinner and enjoy each other's company. Well, he did just the opposite!

While I was getting ready for our dinner reservations, he handed me a folded up piece of paper and a stopwatch set to five minutes and told me he was leaving and not to open the note until the watch reached 0:00. I opened the note and read it, which gave me a clue to look in my trunk. In my trunk was a gift box, which contained an outfit from Ann Taylor Loft and another note with a clue. That note told me where to find the name and address of the restaurant, to pack an overnight bag, and to send  a "sad face" if the outfit didn't fit. Well, the outfit didn't fit, so I sent a "sad face". The next clue sent me into the garage, where he had hidden another outfit he purchased.


If you are a steak lover, like me, then you need to visit Kevin Rathbun Steakhouse the first chance you get. We were served the best steak I have ever tasted in my entire life here!


...and the red velvet cake was excellent too!

My next clue sent me to the W Hotel to chocolate covered strawberries and champagne!








:: Outfit ::
dress: Maggie London via Ross (old)
bag: BCBG clutch (similar here)
shoes: Cynthia Rowley via TJ Maxx
accessories: Michael Kors watch, Natasha (similar here) and
Betsy Johnson bracelets

This was one of the best anniversaries we have ever had. I don't know how he's going to top this one!

Thank you so much for reading!
