Movies, Champagne and Love

This weekend was a full one! We had our anniversary on Saturday and boy was that fun! Our dear friend Lisa came over in the afternoon so Matt and I could go see a movie. It's been a lonnnnnnng time since we've seen a movie during the day and it felt like such a treat. I snuck M&M's into the theater and we snuggled together, forgetting our cares for a few hours.

After coming home, Matt made a wonderful meal for myself, Lucas and he. We both reflected on the fact that Matt's gift is serving others. Almost every birthday or anniversary he cooks for us and our guests. Inevitably, it's always delicious! If not for anything, I am thankful my Man is an excellent cook!

This Saturday, he cooked up Champagne Risotto and Steaks! So good. Of course, we had a cheese platter to start things off. Can't forget the cheese.

And after our cute little rascal went to bed, Matt served up Champagne Sangria. I gotta tell ya... THEY'RE THE BEST DRINK I'VE EVER HAD! Champagne, mint simple syrup and fruit. Yes please.

I'm pretty sure I didn't have that double chin when were married... sigh...
