Happy Anniversary!!

To my dear husband!

My husband is a wonderful, thoughtful, giving man.  God truly blessed me with such an amazing husband.  Our oldest is mine from a previous marriage and he treats her no different then our own children.  He has always made sure that she knows that he loves her no less then our other girls.  There are so many examples of this and when I tell people them their hearts just melt.  His interaction and love for all of our children makes my heart swell and sometimes my eyes.  His love is so sincere and effortless it amazing and shows me what a true man of God he is.  Thank you honey for being so wonderful and thank you God for blessing me more then I deserve!!

It is hard to believe this day several years ago we were on our way to the airport for our honeymoon in London and Paris.  What an amazing trip! 

Our anniversary was Friday February 11th (yesterday).  Every other anniversary we have taken a trip somewhere.  This year thanks to our financial makeover we looked for a cheaper option and frankly it was just as great as any of our trips.  We did a little "date years" reminiscing.  So what does a busy couple with three kids and full time jobs do?  What they never get to do, dinner and a movie(s) of course. 

We started our afternoon off by seeing a movie, Little Fockers, 2:40 pm at the dollar movie.  It was a funny movie of course and there was an inside joke found in the movie that kept us laughing the rest of our evening.

After our movie we had to pick up the little ones and bring them to my sisters house for safe keeping.  Thanks seestar!  We then headed over to one of our favorite dating haunts, Joe's Crabshack, yum, yum!

Foods out!
 "Let's Get Crackin"
 Our steampot feast!  Man do we love seafood!
After dinner we headed back to the dollar theater.  We saw How Do You Know and Harry Potter.  Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actresses and I thought it was a good movie.  Harry Potter we have been seeing in the theater since the second movie and we both get pretty excited about the movies.  After the second movie came out hubby and AM and even myself spent HOURS playing the Harry Potter xbox game.  I am not a big video game player but we all had such an amazing time trying to finish that darn game, great memories.

If you will notice on the marque above the last movie we saw was at 9:35 pm, it did not let out until midnight.  I was so impressed that neither of us fell asleep.  Thank goodness for the murderous seating, otherwise we might have.

Dinner was more than we expected, but not more then we had budgeted for, because hubby is a great planner.  All three of our movies with purchasing 2 large sodas, 1 large popcorn and a nachos came to $25!!  Can you believe that?  In the regular theatre you can hardly get two tickets and concessions under that price.

Needless to say we did not spend a ton of money to travel this year but we had another wonderful anniversary.
