Happy Anniversary To Us

On Monday, June 16th, Sam and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary, and believe it or not, we still love eachother! :-)
We had heard rave reviews about the Melting Pot's "1/2 Price Cheese and Chocolate Happy Hour," so we thought we'd give it a try. Maybe we had heard too much hype about this place, because after the cheese, we were both so unimpressed that we left the restaurant before our chocolate even came. I've got to admit I was pretty disappointed, but we decided to turn this into a fun night of restaurant hopping! (Good thing there are lots of yummy restaurants on the Plaza!)

Course #1: We shared the spinach artichoke fondue at the Melting Pot.
Overall Rating: Average.

Course #2: We shared the carne asada pizza at California Pizza Kitchen.
Overall Rating: Definitely better than your every day pizza.

Course #3: We each ordered our own piece of cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory.
(This stuff is just too good to share!)
Overall Rating: Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Overall Rating for the Night: I actually quite enjoyed the restaurant hopping. It was a lot more fun than sitting down for a full 3 course meal at any one particular restaurant. This will definitely be an anniversary not to forget.

Countdown to the Motherland

Sam has been telling me that since I am married to him, and he is 100% Brittish, that I am 50% Brittish. (I try to argue it is our kids that will be 50% Brittish, but he still insists.) So, since I am theoritically 50% Brittish, Sam decided its high time that he take me to Brittain! (I've always wanted to go to England, so I guess it worked out well that I married an English boy.) We'll spend a few days in London, a few days over in Paris, and then we'll spend about a week up in the Manchester area with his grandma, and Sam can show me where he actually lived. Yay! I can't wait! June 24th just isn't coming fast enough!
