Anniversary Part 2!

Jacob had an extra day off work Tuesday (after Labor Day) so we decided to go off for our anniversary. We figured crowds would be better then, and we had plans for Monday. His sister (she's single and great, people!) watched after Aaron and Chloe all day so he and I could get away. We had an amazing day! We went to Bowling Green (couple hours away) since we hadn't been there in a while. We decided to do the boat tour at Lost River Cave. I'd been there before but never took the boat tour. It was a lot of fun! 

We really couldn't get many decent pictures since it was dark inside. 

My ever-attached accessory 😏

And us! 

We hit Cabelas, a pawn shop, got a snack at Chikfila, and walked through the mall too. I got a bad case of sticker shock. I mean, I was upset when goodwill started charging $5 for pants and skirts instead of $3. The mall is crazy! There's this one brand of jeans I've been wanting to get to turn into a skirt...I've been looking at them on eBay but they're still like $50. I saw them in person for the first time in a store in the mall...$105!!! I think I'll just keep looking. I decided after everything, we should have just went to the Goodwill store in Bowling Green! 

We ate wings for supper. It wasn't a fancy anniversary supper but it's what we wanted, which is what matters. I've been wanting wings for a while and we can't really get them out with the kids, so it was a good time. They were SO GOOD! 

We got there and looked over the menu (we'd never been to a Buffalo Wild Wings) and I asked a couple questions and then the waitress told us that on Tuesdays, wings were half off! So, we got drinks, wings, potato wedges, and dessert and it was $30, including the tip! 

We were gone from about 9am Tuesday to 8pm. It was so nice for the both of us to get away and be alone (relatively lol...I don't leave the baby til they can go long enough between nursing) for a while. And if you need just a little more's our cute tag along. 

Oh, and here's Jacob's coffee mug I got him. ☺️


This was written Sept. didn't publish when I tried to publish it, apparently! The joys of phone internet... 

Yesterday was our fourth anniversary. Somehow it doesn't seem near that long ago that we got married. Time flies when you're having fun, right? Here's one of my favorite pictures from our big day. He's so cute. 

We didn't do anything yesterday...Jacob went to work and I did housework and laundry and fed and cleaned and took care of kids and extremely ordinary day, really. (We may go off somewhere for the day over the weekend) I did splurge on supper (seriously...have you bought a block of Parmesan lately?!) and I made Shrimp Tortellini Alfredo, Creamed Spinach, and Stuffed Mushrooms, with a Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert. We ate and watched Little House on the Prairie with the kids. Romantic! 😏  My pie crust turned out ugly but it sure tasted good. 😎

We had time together after the kids went to bed, but that wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I figured out a long time ago that kids going to bed the same time we did was not going to work for us. Now at least Aaron and Chloe are in the bed at 8pm and most of the time Oliver goes to sleep shortly after that. That leaves Jacob and me a couple hours together alone every night. 

Jacob bought me a bracelet as an anniversary gift. I got him a cheesy coffee mug that says "hello there handsome" My bracelet is just has opals! (And yes, that's his ring on my thumb. He asked if I wanted it back and we were being goofy)

So, here we are. Four years later and more in love than ever. Here's to many many more! 😍
