Anniversary Weekend Recap

Hey Y'all!

So if you stopped by yesterday you would have seen that it was mine and the hubs' second wedding anniversary.  I still can't believe that we have been married for two years.

So since our actual anniversary fell on a Monday we decided to celebrate the weekend before.  Mondays are long days for both of us at work and instead of feeling rushed to get through the day to enjoy our evening together we opted to celebrate this past weekend.

We started our anniversary weekend out on Saturday morning bright and early.  I woke up with a terrible sore throat, and of course being afraid of ruining our weekend we called the advice nurse and found out if I could take anything considering I am pregnant.  We got that all straightened out and went about our day.

Our first adventure was to Folsom to get massages.  The hubs is not a huge massage fan, I am a total fan of course, so he only gets them when I book them for us on special occasions.  This was our third appointment together in the 5 years that we have been a couple.

We got out massages at Hoshall's and it was fabulous.  I scheduled the hubs for a 60 minute Swedish Massage that included a trip to the dry sauna and a steam shower afterwards.  I scheduled myself the "Mama" Sage Pregnancy Massage.  I did not get to use the sauna or steam shower but that was okay with me.

The massages were absolutely amazing.  It was so relaxing and exactly what we both needed.

We then headed home and relaxed until our dinner reservations.  We both ended up taking a nap, which isn't like us, and got rejuvenated for our evening.

Next stop was dinner.  We had reservations for dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.  We had gone here three years ago for a dating anniversary and it was amazing.  We decided it was perfect for this year as well.

We started the evening off at the bar where we grabbed some cocktails.  ::Obviously mine was a Mocktail::  I used to work with the bartender there and since we were celebrating he hooked us up very nicely.  He poured us a Crown Royal and Coke, a Shirley Temple, a Virgin Blackberry Martini and a shot of Crown Royal XR.  The hubs thought that the extra shot was just a sidecar, but it turned out that it was the Crown Royal XR and it turns out that Ruth's Chris sells it for $60/shot.  Kyle was so nice to gift it to us for our anniversary!

We then moved to our table and were greeted with rose petals all over celebrating our anniversary.  This is one of the things we love best about Ruth's Chris.

The hubs wanted to start with an appetizer and ordered Crab stuffed Mushrooms.  He was so excited and pleased with how they turned out.

We both proceeded to get salad, Hubs a Steak Salad and me the Caesar.  Next came the entrees.  I ordered the Fillet and the hubs got the Fillet and Lobster Tail.  I cannot speak well enough about the Fillet.  It is so tender and juicy and smothered in the best sauce and spices.  It is literally worth every single penny.  Hubs was happy with his Fillet and Lobster Tail, although like always wishes that there was more Lobster for the price.  The thing I love most is that all of their steaks come out on plates that are 500 degrees so that your first bite is the same temperature as your last.  For most, this might not be a big deal, but I tend to eat on the slower side so I really appreciate this feature.

We chose to have Chipotle Honey-Mustard Fingerling Potatoes and Mashed Potatoes as our sides.

We were gifted a dessert for our dessert and got a Honey Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake with Vanilla Ice Cream.

It was the perfect way to end our dinner.  We couldn't have had a better experience.

Two years down, eternity left to go.
