While he was at work, I went to the mall to find a new outfit for him & I to wear to our anniversary dinner. Well, I got him 2 shirts that go together, but I didn't find anything for me . That's ok...I have plenty in my closet.
When he got home from work we went to a Japanese SteakHouse called, "Osaka" that we have never been to. It was FANTASTIC! It's the kind where they throw knives in the air and cook in front of you on a hibachi. It was fun! The food portions were HUGE, but I managed to eat almost all of it! I was so full when we left! We planned to go for dessert somewhere else afterwards, but neither of us had any room left for dessert, so we came home to watch a romantic movie, called "Always". We started watching it and realized we had already seen it. Oh well, we continued watching anyway...till we both kept dozing off...so we turned it off and called it a night at 9:30pm and just went to bed. Can ya tell we are not party animals??!!
A nice lady took this of us on our way out of the restaurant for our anniversary scrapbook.
So........... since we missed dessert last night (in more ways than one...haha!) I decided that I was going to make a dessert I found called, "Layers of Love Chocolate Brownies". Doesn't this dessert sound fitting for a 21st anniversary?! Think about all the layers (years) of our love...AWE!!
Oh My Goodness..doesn't this look AMAZING?!!!
